By the way, the tea baggers, or the grass roots part of the Republican Party were remarkably silent while W was on office and didn't veto a spending bill for 6 or so years.

The "tea party" doesn't speak for Americans. They're nothing but an unsavory group of mentally deficient losers. The greatest service they could do for the republic would be to sit down, shut up and stop making a mockery of our democracy.

Default Tea party stinks

The tea party is about as ludicrous as a mood ring or a pet rock designed solely for people who are bigoted and Conservative.

The timing of their emergence is revealing. Absent and content when the incompetent Bush was wrecking the country, spending out of control, and running up the deficit, they are driven insane by the election of a black man as POTUS. Pure racist that ridiculous movement as shown here.

But President Obama continues to have the upper hand, continues to solve problems, and continues to resuscitate this country from the Bush years. He is supremely articulate and the picture of class. He is supremely intelligent and versatile and secure enough in his ideas to focus on solving problems rather than ideological purity.

REPEAT: President Obama's emphasis on solving problems rather than fail because of ideological purity is what dooms the rigid, ineffective, clueless Pubs.

Significant adge to President Obama. Absolutely incredible that we have this great man thru 2016.

The first 2-1/2 minutes are basic civics. The rest is an assertion that the Tea Party is represents the majority of voters. And many of the accusations about Obama could just as easily be leveled at W. Bush.

I watched, I see they quote the president that sold us out with the Federal Reserve and the other one that brought us the Patriot Act. So I take it they relish these 2 aberrations and do nothing more than complain about the present.

While the intent is aiming for a noble cause It appears to be nothing more than lip service using overused complaints without a basis. Looks like re-wrapped Repugs spewing their hatred for Obama. Even when you wrap $ hit in a pretty bow it is nonetheless $ hit.

If they believe this then why aren't they calling for:

repeal of the Patriot act
Elimination of Homeland Security and TSA
Elimination of the Federal reserve
The end to wire tapping
Ending all wars
closing unneeded military bases
or any of the other affronts to our freedom?

Our government is NOT a democracy... it IS a Federal Republic.

Libs won't watch it but they will sure make lots of noise about it.

A message from we the people.


YouTube - We The People
Watched it, turned off the sound and just read the type after a point, far too much background noise. The point was what exactly? That Americans want Freedom, nothing new and not the PERSONAL property of the TEA party even though it seems as if they are trying to make that claim. Nice fluff, that is about it.

Tea baggers stand for only one thing now: corporate welfare. They do not care about the average taxpayer.
