    That's what happens in a big rent party. The test is finding a repub that opposes the GOP or Tea party. Now that is a challenge.

    Seriously, why do repubs point out that not all dems voted with Obama like that is something to criticize? That just show that dems don't march in lock step, right?

    Today's GOP would brand Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and even Reagan as RINO's.

    Hey, goofball, the Tea Party arose from dissatisfaction with the Dems and the Repubs. Have you been in a coma?

    Exactly.

    The frustration at Washington is very real. This is where I agree with Soggy in NOLA. I think many of the members of the Tea Party are genuinely angry at the political system, and what they've been told the problems are.

    But there are too many Big Money groups directing the anger of the Tea Party. For instance: since the conservative money machine doesn't talk about AIG and the derivative market, the Tea Party doesn't seem to talk about it either. In fact, most of the Tea Party has no idea how much money Wall Street lost. They are categorically not allowed to see the sins of corporations.

    The Tea Party is only allowed to be angry at Government, but not the interests which own government.

    Everyone knows that government is a holding of corporate America. It's a bogus holding designed to absorb losses (in the form of bailouts). Who do you think funds elections and staffs government? Corporations own the political and media machinery of the country. The Fed is staffed by Goldman Sachs. The Vice Presidency is staffed by Halliburton. Laws are written by Lobbyists. Corporations get subsidized by the taxpayer. When their bets pay off, they keep the profits - the taxpayer doesn't see a dime. When their bets fail, the taxpayer bails them out. But here is there kicker. . . guess who the Tea Party blames .... (wait for it) . . . they blame everyone but the corporations who own government.

    We didn't see the Tea Party when Reagan and Bush raised the debt ceiling and spent double as much as their Democratic predecessors, and we won't see the Tea Party when the 2012 Republican president doubles the Obama deficits.

    The Tea Party's anger is very real, but the object of that anger has been fully manipulated by movement conservatism.

    :clap2: Add that with the fact that Republicans are pushing the idea that being a businessman means you would be great in government makes sure that they keep mixing business with politics. No not mix it, encourage and ferociously defend it.
