    i keep reading about how the tea party is all about *fiscal responsibility* and that any repub who isn't for *fiscal responsibility* shoiuld be drummed out of the party.

    i've thought about it and i can't think of any candidate, of any party, who claimed to be anything other than *fiscally responsible* and yet i've never seen anything resembling that once they get elected.

    why should i believe that the tea party backed candidates will be any different?

    o'donnell is the latest candidate that the tea party has put forward as an exemplar of fiscal rectitude, but she doesn't pay her own bills, including her mortgage and taxes. :lol:

    But while she was courting voters, she amassed thousands of dollars in campaign debt, was confronted by the IRS about unpaid income taxes and sold her Wilmington home to a campaign staffer to avoid a sheriff's sale ordered to settle mortgage claims, a News Journal investigation shows

    Delaware politics: O'Donnell faces campaign debt, back-tax issues | delawareonline.com | The News Journal

    can someone 'splain this to me? :confused:

    thanks

    IMO, the teaparty is just the new term for social conservatives.

    Maybe she figured if it was okay for members of the administration not to pay their taxes, it was good enough for her?

    I'm sure she'll get caught up...

    Eventually...

    Maybe...

    i was thinking that she certainly qualifies for a czar type position at least.

    maybe chicken choking? it seems to be a topic that interests her.

    I know that she's been divisive, certainly doesn't sound like my kind of candidate. I think they just decided that they didn't want to vote for a liberal Republican, so they went with tea party candidate. The real news would be if she should win in November, obviously. However, seems to me that the GOP is really trying to keep their lock on two party, problem is the people that used to back them no longer do and the dems offer no alternatives.

    Unless the GOP gets rid of the old guard, they are the most likely to fall within a couple of election cycles. Not this one, they will win substantial numbers, including some they don't like.

    Just like the dimocrats who want to raise taxes but don't pay their own.

    Face it, all politicians fucking suck which is why we should not keep voting the same fucking idiots back into office.

    Yep. I don't know if we need to vote out all of them, but flushing a bunch would help.
