Um... have you looked at the LEVEL of spending?

The lefts argument is "all other presidents have spent money, so why is this president any different".

Maybe because he has spent more in 1 year than all other presidents combined?

Are you really going to try and say that is the same thing?

Also... you do realize that the tea parties were around when BUSH was in office, don't you? Why not the stink then?

Just as there were in various other anti-war organizations like code pink and such.

What about them? Too inconvenient, I think.

When liberals protest it's usually against bullsh*t wars perpetrated by Neo-Cons from Texas.

Massive difference between protesting a cut in taxes and required insurance and invasion of a nation 5000 miles away.
From what you write I gather you would have sided with the British against the American colonists.

Well they are getting coverage now because the elite media tactic of ignoring them did not work. So they switched to covering them with a negative spin. That's not working, either. I'm anxious to see what the elite media will try next to discredit and marginalize middle America before the next election.

In order to collect a crowd of 10,000 Dick Armey has to supply the Casino Buses. That's pathetic for a "Movement". Their day is over, I just wish the Press would give up trying to make something out of them

Tea party posts - criticizes government intervention.
Anti Tea Party posts - calls tea partiers racist, wing nuts who can't spell

Right, the pro-Tea Party posts all take a higher ground, NOT!
