    I was just watching Tea Bagger Judson Phillips on MSNBC and he's calling on John Boehner to resign as speaker to make way for a "real conservative" like (get this) Eric "I'm betting on the US government defaulting" Cantor.

    He then defended corporate jet owners over grandmothers on Social Security.

    The Tea Baggers are delusional and going to destroy the Republican Party from within. Someone make the popcorn!

    Washington PostNew polling from the Washington Post and Pew Research Center paints Boehner’s challenge in corralling the tea party element of the Republican conference in stark relief.

    The data suggests that those who identify as Republicans who are supportive of the tea party not only view themselves as far more educated than the average person on the current debt debate, but are also far more worried about the impact if the debt limit is increased.

    More than eight in 10 tea party supporters (81 percent) said they understand “what would happen if the government does not raise the federal debt limit” — far more than the 55 percent of all respondents who said the same thing.

    Three quarters of tea party supporters said that they were more concerned that raising the debt ceiling would “lead to higher government spending and make the national debt bigger,” while just 19 percent said they were more worried that “not raising the debt limit would force the government into default and hurt the nation’s economy.”

    That stands in stark contrast to all Americans in the poll, 47 percent of whom said raising the debt limit was a bigger concern while 42 percent said not raising it was the bigger worry.


    The message from the numbers? Tea party backers simply don’t believe that not raising the debt limit by Aug. 2 is all that big a deal — and they feel that way because they believe they understand the issue inside and out.


    So, the Tea Baggers want the US to default because it "won't be a big deal" and they think it will sink Obama's reelection chances.

    And these people think they're patriots? icon_rolleyes.gif

    How many grandmothers on Social Security do you know who create jobs? Corporate jet owners are good for the economy because they hire pilots and spend money on jet fuel. It's that simple.
