    Delusional as in believing things that are false to be true. As I flip through the channels on the tube, occasionally I'll see "Tea Party Caucus" beneath a name, and stop long enough to listen. Three times in the last couple of days T Party members of Congress were presenting polls, that they had supposedly conducted in their own districts, and using them as proof that Americans support them in overwhelming numbers.

    During interviews they would claim things, like Republicans had past a bi-partisan budge bill that Obama opposes. When questioned, they would be forced to admit that neither were valid points of arguments. Some were forced to admit that they had past a clean Debt Ceiling bill, without any attachment, in the past under Bush. When asked about Obama invoking the name of Reagan in his speech tonight, specifically in regards to this quote,

    “Would you rather reduce deficits and interest rates by raising revenue from those who are not now paying their fair share, or would you rather accept larger budget deficits, higher interest rates, and higher unemployment? And I think I know your answer.”,

    ....they started seemed uncomfortable. They made comments, like it was funny to see this President quoted another President. None could explain why it was they agreed with Reagan's statement, but opposed raising taxes on "those who are not now paying their fair share". It's baffling trying to figure these folks out.

    So far the Tea Party have been the only ones that have been right about everything that the government should be doing.

    Here's a good example of what I'm talking about. I didn't take down the others names.

    They are just propaganda fools.

    They lap up whatever the people who benifit from leading them arround by the nose say.


    They are a lost cause.

    The tea party will be dead of its own making soon.

    The damage theywill leave for the American people will last much longer

    You are the lost cause.

    The tea party is actually doing what they were sent there to do. I understand you expect your leaders to stab you in the back.

    I would venture that any of them who think they can be re-elected should they cave in to Obama's blackmail are, indeed, delusional.

    Capitulation = Primary

    ruining your own credit by not paying your bills to save money is what you are doing
