    Hardball just had Republican after Republican and leaders of the Tea Party for the entire time of the show. Chris Mathews asked the same questions to each and every one and the answers were amazing.

    First, the debt ceiling came up for each guest. Republicans said they would do whatever it takes to keep government running. The Tea Party guest said they could "shut down government" and that would be fine. Shut down government? I wonder what Gov. Christie thinks about that?

    Then they talked about Health Care. Republican want to repeal health care. The recent CNN Poll was discussed again and again.

    ----------------------------
    CNN Poll: Controversial health care provision unpopular – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    Overall, 54 percent oppose the law, down five points from March, with 43 percent in favor of the measure, up four points from earlier this year. But roughly a quarter of those who oppose the new law do so because it is not liberal enough. Only 37 percent of the public opposes the new law because it is too liberal.
    -----------------------------
    But look at the REAL Numbers, 43% are in favor of the measure and 13% feel it didn't go far enough. Hmmm, add those two together and 56% are either in favor or feel it didn't go far enough. Odd.

    The amazing part was when they listed their policies on health care, creating jobs, regulating Wall Street, keeping jobs here. Here is the complete description of the Republican and Tea Party policies:

    1. Health Care
    a. repeal and replace with nothing.
    b.

    2. Creating jobs
    a.

    3. Regulating Wall Street
    a. More deregulation
    b.

    4. Keeping jobs here
    a.

    5. Debt ceiling
    a. Raise ceiling (GOP)
    b. Shut down government (TP)
    c.

    6. Darrel Isa
    a. Get Obama
    b. Get Obama
    c. Get Obama
    d.

    Well, that's it. That's the Republican plans for helping America for the next two years. If someone has more info, please share. Provide links. Help us to understand what Republican's plans are for the next two years.

    Can't wait for you TPers to explain to the boys in Afghanistan why they won't be paid, or resupplied until some compromise is found.

    Oh?

    That isn't the government you were thinking of when you elected to shut it down out of childish spite?

    Well that's the government we have, so maybe it would help to think just a tad more deeply about the problems we're actually facing.

    It bums you out that a politician might actually keep his promise?

    I have to admit that I am shocked and surprised at such an event.

    And delighted
