    DeMint Endorses Williams in Texas - Robert Costa - The Corner on National Review Online

    Eventually, the truth emerges. For once however, it seems that I somewhat agree with Senator DeMint. Though I wonder if any of his fellow Republican Senators would agree.

    Discuss.

    DeMint can blow it out his ass.

    Dipshit republicans trying to steal the spotlight at some of the tea parties have been booed and hooted off the stage.

    Like who? I see the tea parties embracing those who go to their rallies. Such as DeMint, Bachmann, Palin, etc.

    I don't know and this isn't about Sarah Palin.

    Fact is that the tea party crowd cuts across all political identities.

    It isn't about Sarah Palin, it's about being consistent. The one problem with the Tea parties having so many different groups is that their message is not consistent. Just recently, I see a tea party that wants to make Christmas Carols in schools by law. That goes against the whole idea of the Tea Party.

    The new car smell is gone, now they all have to face the reality of the situation.

    I think that the TEA Party is kind of a Rorshak (sp?) test. It is what you think it is.

    I like it because to me it is about fiscal responsibility. I don't see it as having an agenda, but, of course, politics will imprint policy on it.

    My ideal political party is one that takes as little money from me as is possible and leaves me the hell alone. Protect the borders, fix the roads, maintain the peace, care for those who cannot care for themselves, regulate within reason interstate commerce and deliver the mail.

    All of this crap about providing equal rights, encouraging moral strength, class warfare, wealth re-distribution, bedroom regulation, forced do gooderism, righting imagined wrongs, fabricating threats and outright theft of the public's money is getting to be a little tiresome.

    If the TEA Party is for common sense restaint, I'm for the TEA party. If the TEA Party is for dressing the same old whore in a new frock, I have no time for it.

    The TEA Party needs an eloquent spokesman who is not already stained by the actions committed to prostitute his ideals to his party of the past. The country needs the same person.

    Yep--as a tea partier myself we will most certainly support conservative candidates. Doesn't matter if they're democrat, republican or independant--as long as they're conservative.

    We will kick to the curb republican who is a moderate--or basically a democrat with an R behind their name.

    Republicans should be worried. If they are not paying attention to the tea partiers--the conservatives of this country--that big tent is going to move away from them.
