I am not sure I would describe it as a mess what I would say is that people are fed up with the crazy taxing and spending in Washington, no matter which side is doing it. The Tea parties are not a Republican construct.

You are correct, but the liberals who want to HATE anyone who disagrees with them can only post the rhetoric that comes from their leaders, since they can't think for themselves.

I think that is true but the main stream media, and the alternate media John Stewart et al are as bad as the partisans you find on a site like this. It is getting increasingly hard to find the straight story on any topic because virtually every news outlet has a paritsan tilt. I am sure there are people on this site who watch MSNBC and John Stewart exclusively and that is why they don't umnderstand the Tea parties. As well as people who watch FOX exclusively and don't understand where hte left is coming from. All information is becoming increasingly distorted.

You are right. I do believe that MSNBC is much more distorted than Fox News could ever be though. I will admit that at least CNN has Lou Dobbs and do make some, not all of course, independent type interviews, but they went to much to the liberal left side that I was shocked because they used to be more independent.

NO, they were not. You really need to get off your partisan butt and read and watch other news perspectives. The teap parties were all about the spending from both sides. They can't help it that Obama and the Dems decided to up the anti of spending to a ridiculous amount all for partisan politics, and not for the good of the country. That goes for the idiot Pubs who think that their spending is just ok.

He is trying so desperately to place the blame on nothing but Republicans and how they hate poor little Obama and all. he is nothing but a partisan kool-aid drinker and nothing more and it is also why his post is so difficult to understand. Public education at its best, ya know.
