Dang! there's that ilk word liberals never use again. I don't understand, I was told by a liberal they 'never' use that word ilk.

If it were up to me he would have been arrested and tried for treason a long time ago.

But then I would be as stuck with Biden, who has commited the crime of being a Capitol jerk, followed up by Nancy.

The only way that they can remain 'relevant' is by attempting to elevate their patron saint, Sarah Palin, run for RNC Chairman (to of course replace the "Token"). However, the true Republican establishment will never let that happen and will quash the TP movement entirely.

Hmmmm.....I didn't read through this thread, so maybe someone already pointed this out.

There are somewhere between 13 and 19 Tea Party groups nation-wide that fall under the umbrella "Tea Party". Around four or five of the national TP groups are backed by Freedom Works and a few other highly Conservative, pro-corporation (note* NOT pro ma & pop or small business). These are the people that want corporations to dictate the economy and essentially have more rights than humans-which, by the way, they already do.

As a whole, the Tea Party is not a puppet to anyone, except for maybe the Baby Boomer generation. The only thing that unites them all is their mantra: Principle over Party, which basically means that they vote for candidates that fall in line with their agenda over the ones that are a "shoe-in". In essence, they vote by belief, not who is the most electable even if it means a Republican loss.

And it is for that reason that the TP is losing steam and, for the most part, viewed as a bunch of extreme whack-jobs. Even though some of the TP backed candidates did win recently, just look at some of those candidates that they did support for evidence of this.

Even though Tea Partiers are registered Republican, and vote Republican, they are far more to the right than the average Republican and view themselves as the real Conservatives. That is primarily why the "other" Republican's are distancing themselves from these groups.

By the way, even though some of the candidates that Palin supported won on the local level, there is no way that anyone she supports nationally would win. She is considered a joke by (most) Republicans in power and they understand that what ever ticket she is on will be a losing Republican ticket.

Mark my words: Put Palin behind the next Republican Presidential Ticket, or even on the ticket itself, and I guaranty you another four years with a Democrat in the White House (i.e., unless there is a strong third party candidate).

This is a long standing tactic that has been used by Republicans and Democrats: Have a Vice President that is "worse" than the President and it will smash any notion of trying to remove the [which ever] President from office.

Let's see....

First article used a disgusting, vulgar sexual term in the first sentence, losing all credibility.

Second article was an opinion piece, making assumptions about a poll.

Third article was pure speculation, and had nothing but accusations. No proof at all.

And if you really want to talk racist, how 'bout that NAACP organization?

If that's all you've got, I don't need to see more. You obviously frequent sites and sources that solidify your racist views.

You noticed that too huh? I can't stand Biden since his Bill Clinton Days.

Why can't this country produce any real leaders?

Face it, the Tea Party was invented by Washington Lobbyists, like Dick Armey, so they could make tens of millions pushing their clients wares. They were stooges who are no longer needed

Im not a liberal but the word ilk does apply to those who refuse to let Obama be the elected President.
