    Interesting how more and more favorable coverage of tea parties has occurred once the MSM were successful in helping with HCR. :doubt: From the NY Times to David Letterman, and a few now from CNN. In the next few weeks I expect we'll be treated to 'more problems' with HCR and more coverage of tea parties.

    The damage is done, now they can show their 'even handedness'. Of course it follows the reports on ratings and reports to stockholders. The MSM media isn't in good shape.

    Madness can be contagious look only at contemporary America. Elect a Martian and see what happens, I warned you all before the election!

    Which is basically what I have been trying to tell people all along.

    This isn't about parties, its about unresponive government being held responsible.

    Disgruntled:

    Synonyms:
    annoyed, bad tempered, bellyaching, crabbing, crabby, cranky, griping, grouchy, grousing, grumpy, irritable, irritated, kicking, kvetching, malcontent, malcontented, peeved, peevish, petulant, put out, sulky, sullen, testy..,
    -------------------

    yep that about sums up the Tea Party.

    btw, when I left the Democratic party, I did so over principles, not the misanthropic feelings of the troglodytes who are profiled.

    Hot Air Blog Archive CBS poll: Believe it or not, support for ObamaCare still eroding

    Must be some of the following Dems...

    Strange as it is to say, the Tea Party could be Obama's political friends. (something about strangeness and bedfellows bla bla) The best thing that could happen to President Obama would be for the Dems to lose one or both houses in Congress. If he keeps getting his way and his agenda through, he could end up losing in 50 States in 2012. (leaving him 7 plus DC I guess)

    This isn't a new development.

    The first tea party I went to was in San Francisco last April 15th. We had GOP, Dem, Independent, Libertarian and completely apolitical people.

    The one thing everyone agreed upon was that government is Too Big and spending is Out of Control.
