    The populist movement IS gaining momentum folks. The tea parties, the increased din among even normally left-leaning columnists, and of course, agitaged, increasingly fearful, Americans who have seen their equity, retirement, and jobs eliminated over the past year while the Democrat controlled White House and Congress march to a spending orgy tune of trillions of social restructuring amidst economic hardship.

    Countrywide Dodd is but the first of what could prove many...

    Dream on, Frank.

    There is nothing populist about the Republican Party.

    It is the party of exclusion.

    Who said anything about the Republican party? I'm not doing this because I'm a Republican. Most that are joining me are not Republicans. In fact I'm just now getting word through the GOP about the Tea Party's. The locals have nothing to do with the planning.

    The left has to get it out of their head that their oposition is exclusivily 'republicans'.

    The GoP is a politcal party the right alligns with these days soley to block a leftist agenda, not through any kind of loyalty.

    PEOPLE are fed up with this tax and spend crap, this is why so many have worked against the democrats for so long, as soon as they regained power, it was as expected the corner stone of their activities.

    Exactly,I'm not a Republican. I'm just totally against Obama and his corrupt administration. Thus,the enemy of MY enemy is now my friend...

    You don't have to be a "republican" to see what a disaster this next 4 years is going to be with our new "super cool" fearless leader trashing our relationships with or allies...not to mention our economy...among other things..

    And YOU have to get it out of your head that the left is Democrats.

    The sooner that a real populist movement manifests that includes both former Dems and former Reps., the sooner we'll start actually dealing with the shadow puppet masters who control both parties.

    WRONG, I don't have that in my head, but there is no democrat who is not on the left.

    I'm talking about opposing the current power, that the chimera of changing the system, you forget, I loathe both parties.

    Actually, you're incorrect....

    Rasmussen Reports™: The Most Comprehensive Public Opinion Data Anywhere

    And the only reason you think there's any significant "movement" is that you're a) looking at Rasmussen which seems to be the outlier according to RCP....

    and wishful thinking.

    more importantly:

    More importantly, it's not Obama's fault the far right allows itself to be manipulated by:
