The video at the end is classic and they are right his words will make some great campaign ads

The Dems will most certainly take advantage of their assets. The TPers are a big asset, one I am not sure wasn't actually started by them.

He just doesn't get it. The election honeymoon is over and reality has set in. Large numbers of those who voted for him are taking a second look and they don't like what they see. Classic voters' remorse.

Let me get this straight... Here you're saying that the Tea Party protesters are an asset to the Democrats, correct? Presumably because you believe that the conservative vote will be split in November, increasing the chances that the Democrats will retain their stranglehold on Congress.

But throughout this forum, you're constantly ridiculing them and doing your best to marginalize the movement; trying to make it insignificant.

Which is it? If you believe that the Tea Party protesters are a Democrat asset, then you should be supporting them, not debasing them at every opportunity.

You can't even keep your actions in line with your logic. Exactly why should we take you seriously?

I guess it's a little over your head. Ridiculing them, riles them up. When they get riled up, they demonstrate their idiocy. Demonstrating their idiocy, hurts their influence on Independents. The Nov elections, are going to be decided by Independents. And, if the TPers are to actually put some candidates up, that will help as well.

But the tea party is made up of independents and republicans being the largest majorities 43% of tea party members are independent according to gallup.

So dont you think you are ticking off the group that you need to help you?

So you are counting on independents wanting larger gov in their lives and to pay more in taxes. You think promoting that is going to help you but thats what your promoting when you attack those independents in the tea party movement

Baloney..according to the latest Gallup poll...Obama is at 49% approval, 45% disapproval. He won the election 52-47%.

Gallup Daily: Obama Job Approval

Perhaps you could provide a link proving that.. "Large numbers of those who voted for him are taking a second look and they don't like what they see"...

Otherwise, I'll just file your post under..more Faux News BS.

"A" for effort; "F" for achievement. You got caught in a logical SNAFU.

If they're a Democrat asset, as YOU stated they are, then you (and other Democrats) should be supporting them. Instead, you ridicule them.

Can't have it both ways, bob, no matter what spin you try (and fail) to put on it.

The democrats are ridiculing and calling the American people names because they do not want to discuss the issues presented by the TEA party movement.

TEA Party: "The national debt needs to brought under control"
Washington democrats: "You're racists"

TEA Party: "We have high unemployment and a slowing economy, focus on growing the economy, not health care, cap & trade and immigration reform"
Washington democrats: "You people are evil mongers, racists and homphobes"

TEA Party: "The federal government is getting too big, absorbing too much of the private sector"
Washington democrats: "You guys are just like McVeigh, you are political terrorists"


TEA Party: "Stop with the deficit spending and end the over 10,000 earmarks, concentrate on the economy and jobs."
Washington democrats: "you are the KKK, just without hoods and sheets"

TEA Party: "You can't keep raising taxes on us and pushing legislation that will raise them even more, while we have over 9% unemployment and the economy may double dip on us"
Washington democrats: "So I've been a little amused over the last couple of days where people have been having these rallies about taxes..."
