Unfortunately for the overly sensitive, the term "teabagger" was put into play by the tea partiers themselves.

The first big day for this movement was Tax Day, April 15 [2009]. And organizers had a gimmick. They asked people to send a tea bag to the Oval Office. One of the exhortations was “Tea Bag the Fools in D.C.” A protester was spotted with a sign saying, “Tea Bag the Liberal Dems Before They Tea Bag You.” So, conservatives started it: started with this terminology. But others ran with it and ran with it.

The N word is used and put in play by blacks. Does it make it right.

No problem, the name calling doesn't bother me, but it seems strange that you would resort to a technique you previously described a juvenile and odious.

The only poll that really matters was in November of 2008. President Obama won that poll hands down. We'll have another poll in November 2012. Until then, polls are just opinions and everyone has one of those.

Ask a black. You'll get an honest response.

Right Now - NBC/WSJ poll: Most voters prefer health-care 'changes' over repeal
Since repeal will involve an immediate replacement of the repealed law with a better law, it seems they do favor repeal.

Health Care Law - Rasmussen Reports™


The hussein obamabaggers don't care what the majority think. If we can get rid of enough of the Dems, the health care bill will be gone, as written.
