    51% of Americans disapprove of the Tea Party - an all time high.
    And only 31% of Americans approve of the Tea Party - an all time low.

    And yet the Repubs in Iowa want to make Tea Party favorite Michele Bachmann the Repub presidential nominee!

    this shows how "out of touch" the GOP/teabaggers are with what the American voter wants.

    This did surprise me a bit. I think Michelle will end up as a vice-presidential selection, depending on the nominee.

    How about Ron Paul Coming in second? I think this represents the anti-status-quo thinking that is going on.

    Rick Perry coming in today as a candidate will shake things up. I've lived in Dallas for over a year. Texas seems to be a well run state. Don't like the strong Christian fundamentalist attitudes here, but no place is perfect.

    Just a few thoughts in general.

    No place is perfect is right, but running things that succeed like a state is one thing, but quite another when they strongly urge mixing religion and politics, That should scare any student of history and is very good reason not to vote for such as Perry, Bachmann, Santorum, or Palin. Any of them are a recipe for desaster for Americans rights and freedoms because their religion will take us backwards.

    The Tea Baggers are a fabulous distraction for the Republican Party. The silent, moderate, middle will continue to put more distance away from the crazy.

    But Teabaggers are still a political power in some States, like here in Florida. Due to our demographics, we have lots of the cranky old "get off my lawn" retirees, even if they do live in condos.

    And we call them Condo Commandos, because they are just bitchy senile fools who complain about everything. They'll complain about anything, if you point them in the right direction. A brilliant move by Dick Armey, funded by the Koch brothers.

    Get these old geezers agitated, and they'll vote for whatever you tell them. And they're mostly White bigots in the first place, their generation that was swamped by the civil rights movement, so they're a perfect audience for neo-racism. Blacks, gays, women, they really don't care, they just wanna hate.

    But the last I read, a very high percentage of Republicans identify with the Tea Party.

    Religious extremists and fundies are losing support, not the actual core ideas that formed the tea party movement in the first place which were based on instigating fiscal responsibility from our government and a backlash against the obamacare overhaul which has now rightfully been found unconstitutional by the courts.

    Also, RickRick, the Democrats are doing quite well in the polls with regards to the upcoming Wisconsin recall elections of those 6 Republican state senators.... oh wait, we had those elections last week didn't we and, uh, oops, those "polls" were completely wrong.

    Um, but never you mind... it was a HUGE victory for Democrats, unions and the Progressive movement in Wisconsin last week!




    NOPE.
    The polls indicated that the Dems were likely to win two races, and that's what happened.

    The recall elections in WI were basically a redo of the 2010 election.
    And the fact that the Repubs lost two races that they won last November clearly shows that the pro-Repub sentiment that existed in 2010 no longer exists.
    Which is backed up by the poll numbers we're seeing as well.

    In fact, the polls show that your party is back in the doghouse with the American people.

    Exactly, so it was predictable, nothing to celebrate about.

    Priceless coming from you!


    His blindness to his own issue of hate, and the trail of destruction behind him makes one giggle all the bloody time. The disability of confusion, of the bisexuals, thank god I was never inflected with that one.
