    Poor Jimmy, being the worst president was one thing he did well. Now he's met his match. He's still the worst former president though. There needs to come a point when they just go away before they die.

    Re: The Tea Party Is.....

    Today, I get first hand experience with the tea party. As I have mentioned in the past, I work for a State Representative in Lansing, Michigan as chief of staff. Yesterday we had between 5 - 10,000 union people gathering on the lawn protesting the Governor's budget proposals. It was the single largest crowd of the season and there have been many. Today, we get the tea party doing their thing. This morning as I walked from the parking lot on the capitol grounds to the office building, there was a very large bright pink pig at least the size of a large van, in front of the capitol buidling. On it were written some slogans including "Cut Pork", "Cut Benefits" and "Shared Sacrifice". The last is the PR mantra of the Governor to get across his budget cuts and tax increases.

    I will file a report later on what happens here.

    Re: The Tea Party Is.....

    I'm not angry at all. Nor do I contend that there are not democrats who are nutters, or extreme. There are republicans who are as well. But the tea party is based on anger with no real coherent message. And they have produced pretty silly, far right, extreme right candidates. This is a mere fact. Not something to be angry about.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Wait, no racist signs? How odd...


    BTW, it's Thursday, why aren't these union thugs at work? Are they being paid?

    If you see socialist everywhere, you are extreme, if not a little paranoid as well.

    Yes Barb, we will walk among the crowd and talk to as many people as possible. We always introduce ourselves and look for constituents and this will be no different.
