    Thanks! I wasn't trying to question that they said it... I simply did not know what the FFs said that implied that. Good to know

    I look at her the same way I look at people like Limbaugh, Glenn Beck or Hannity... claiming that people with liberal views are socialists and anti-American and wish to destroy this country. This "apology" does nothing for me. The only reason she apologized was to not lose votes. She has since proven she did not mean that apology. But thanks for the article though!

    Re: Tea Party or Coffee Party?

    I just want to interject, both groups sound great on paper. But in actuality, or at least for the Tea Party, the group is nothing but neo-con's gathering under Rush Limbaugh. It's like communism. Good idea gone awry.

    I'd assume the Coffee Party is umch the same.

    Its possible, but who can tell at this stage in the game. If the coffee party ends up being as intolerant as the tea party (and maybe its just my local tea party that is intolerant) than it will be equally as useless in moving the country forward.

    Re: Tea Party or Coffee Party?

    If Tea Partiers are more comfortable waving signs at a health-care protest, these activists seem much more at ease with a cup of java inside the calm confines of a coffee shop.

    This weekend marks the kick-off of the Coffee Parties across the country— which has been billed as the liberal response to the Tea Party movement — and I stopped by one of the Washington D.C. area gatherings Saturday morning at Peregrine Espresso in the Eastern Market area — only to find a small gathering of five activists huddled at a small table.

    I attended the first organizing event of the nascent Coffee Party at an ungodly hour of a rainy morning in the welcoming Busboys & Poets coffeeshop in downtown Washington, DC. I had persuaded my friend Mary Panke to go with me, believing in her ability to think positive thoughts and to see creative solutions in every issue. I attended mostly out of curiousity and the cynical fear that the Coffee Party was attempting to copy the Tea Party's tactics.

    The approximately 50 people in attendance ranged from students, young people in their 20s, a female military officer in her upper 50s who was an ardent pacifist, and many middle-aged people like myself who weren't sure what they were walking into but were open to a new paradigm. Led by activist and entrepreneur Andy Shallal and CodePink founder Medea Benjamin, the meeting's rules were clear: No bashing of the Tea Party and a willingness to talk and listen. The presence of a CNN crew lent a festive air as did the free (organic, free trade) coffee.

    The first full-fledged gathering of the Kansas City chapter of the newly hatched Coffee Party drew a diverse crowd of about 40 persons to the coffee shop at 63rd and Oak streets in Kansas City.

    I attended both Tea parties in my town, population 12,000....... we had 500 at the first, 1500 at the second.

    Just like Air America, you Libs can try to copy the program, but you can't compete with the message.

    1. Tea party started as a libertarian movement.

    2. Rush has nothing to do with or even endorses tea parties.

    Only time will tell how successful the Coffee Party will be. Your assessment is very premature. This group literally started a few months ago... I hadn't even heard about it until a week ago.
