    Poll: Tea Party GOP, Obama nearly tied for leader of choice

    And this is why so much hateful rhetoric is being spewed by the Left.

    They saw from the time of the giant Tea Party rally on 9-12 and the equally huge one on 8-28 that the Conservatives, Moderates, Independents, Libertarians, and many thinking Americans have had enough talk of Socialism/Marxism and the pack of lies belching forth from the "Trifecta of Doom," Oabama, Pelosi, Reid, all the Democrats, and Progressive Republicans.

    We want this Administration to understand when the American people want change we want the Constitution to be left alone and intact.

    Too many people misunderstood that when on "Mar 15, 2008 Obama said "My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it".

    They had no idea Obama meant destroy it and trample the Constitution.

    I think Obama will not be running in 2012 because he will not be able to beat Hillary. All we have to do is make sure she is defeated before she runs.

    This is all good news.

    Poll: Tea Party GOP, Obama nearly tied for leader of choice - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room
    The portion of voters that prefers President Obama as the federal government's key policy player barely edges out those that want the Tea Party Republicans in charge.

    According to a Gallup survey released this week, 28 percent prefer Obama while 27 prefer the newly-elected Tea Party Republicans.

    The Republican leaders in Congress, meanwhile, received 23 percent support, putting them in third place followed by the Democratic leaders, who received 16 percent support.

    There is no Tea Party.

    Pointing out other peoples hate doesn't make me angry, however I am puzzled that so many people are unable to see what is right in front of them.

    Pointing it out makes me a target for the "Firsters" and they always project their hate and lies on to others out of ignorance and fear.

    Keep in mind that ignorance does not mean stupidity unless one is stupid and thinks it does. As used here it just means uninformed, or unenlightened, as the case my be.

    Actually, there is. There is the National Tea Party, which is a clearinghouse for the many Tea Party organizations out there.

The National Tea Party kicked them out, but they are still out there, claiming to represent who it does not really represent. Don't be fooled. The National Tea Party is the real thing, but it is pretty much ONLY a vehicle that coordinates the activities of the various local and state Tea Parties, and does not hold power itself. It is those local Tea Parties that are the real thing. Don't let any organization calling itself a "nation wide" Tea Party, that purports to represent everyone in the Tea Party movement, fool you. That kind of an organization has only one purpose in mind - To seize back the power it lost, at the expense of Tea Party organizations from coast to coast, as well as at the expense of America. .

    I'd be more tolerant of the Tea Party if they really invested in across-the-board small-government conservatism and didn't act as a party constituency. But given what people think about their contribution to the election, I see them acting like a faction. I'd like to be able to count myself as a Tea Partier at some point.

    What's Obama done that's unconstitutional?

    When they get on the ballot as an official political party with their own candidates for office they then become the Tea Party. Until then they are using a title that they are not.

    Who is claiming that they're a political party?

    You realize there's other definitions of the word "party" correct?

    When people...typically other than some liberals who purposefully or ignornatly misrepresenting it...speak about the "Tea Party" they're talking about the "Tea Party Movement" and essentially leaving the "movement" piece off. It's much like saying "The Environmentalists" typically refers to the Environmentalist Movement, however the "movement" part is left off.

    There is a "Tea Party", IE a movement of people across the country that are protesting against expanding government and fiscal irresponsability and pushing for those that will fight against those things in the government. There is not a "Tea Party" in the same national sense as there is a "Democratic Party" or a "Republican Party", but then again there's few if any Tea Party participants that actually suggest that is the case...the only ones that ever focus so much on it being a political party tend to be liberals who NEED it to be a political party to be able to insult it more.

    In regards to the poll, its not all that suprising really. Obama's approvals have been going down, and the 2000's republicans aren't exactly the most popular bunch either, where as the Tea Party's message can reach a broad base to be able to get enough to match up with the other two's numbers.
