    Think Progress Claiming He Doesn’t Want To ‘Scoop’ Himself, McConnell Refuses To Detail GOP Agenda

    The Party of No has no ideas and is refusing to let the American people know what their agenda will be until almost the last minute. How shameful.

    you're such a partisan modbert....why do you even bother trying to say you're non partisan?

    they are not the party of no and if they want to want one more month, then let them wait...i would rather them wait and have a good strategy...

    This isn't about campaigning, this is about knowing what the Republicans are going to do if they take over the House and or Senate. Or do you not care as long as the Democrats are out?

    Of course the Dems are going to try and connect the GOP and Tea Party. Not a very hard job since it's already been done for them.

    Republican lawmakers gird for rowdy tea party

    Republicans are the ones who originally called them one in the same. Probably doesn't help matters when each and every ideological poll about the Tea Party discovers that it's a high majority Conservative and represents the GOP base.

    Ah lovely, what a answer that was! Attack me personally and then say they're not the party of No. Conservatives are telling them to just admit they are the party of no.

    You seem to not realize that they've been delaying telling the American people their agenda for awhile now. The fact is they continue to delay doing so until nearly the last minute.

    Why should they set out an agenda, when they're in the minority and have no ability to drive it?

    Why shouldn't the Pelosi policy, circa 2002, of "we gotta stop them" be good enough when it's guys with (R)s by their names are doing so?

    Because there's a strong possibility that won't be the same come after November's election.

    As for Pelosi, I would of disagreed with such comments in 2002, just two problems.

    1.) I believe USMB wasn't even in existence yet.

    2.) I had no idea who Pelosi was since y'know, I was in around the sixth grade or seventh grade at the time.

    The Republicans may want to claim the tea parties, but the tea parties are not en masse supporting the Republicans, not by a long shot.

    As for the elections, the cry will be basically, "Anyone not pro-Obama." Thus the rats jumping ship, almost as fast as Obama kicks folks under his bus.

    Judging from their past actions, their agenda is going to be Lefty Lite®.

    Even if there's a big turnover, the party caucuses are going to be run by career double-dealing insider schmucks, McConnell and Boehner.

    What'll most likely happen is that they'll make some token moves to reign in spending and bureaucracy, then the democratics and their willing toadies in the mastodon media will screech as though they're having limbs amputated without anesthesia.

    I saw this crappy movie back in '94/'95.

    Really?

    The Fix - Tea Party = Republican party?

    Sounds like they support Republicans as close as one non-paid political group could be "en masse".

    Well remakes are all the rage now. They're never as good as the original though. So remaking a crappy movie is probably not a smart idea.

    the right is doing fine with the scare whitey routine, and judging by the white trash fear meter here they are doing a great job.
    I'm hoping for tea party wins in the double digits, getting encumbants of both parties out can only be good.

    We'll see. Seems that right now there are two basic choices, thus the answer the Post is finding. However, different questions get different results and time will tell:

    Roger L. Simon A New Majority? PJTV Poll Tracks Tea Party Supporters

    Lots of links at site.

    I went to your link Annie, I give Gallup and you give me PJTV? :eusa_eh:

    I hate to focus on the source, but really? PJTV?

    Pajamas Media - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Instapundit: Republican

    Larry Kudlow: Republican Bush Supporter.

    He said this:

    Lawrence Kudlow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Way to go Larry! :thup:

    Michael Barone: Conservative Pundit.

    And I could go on really.

    Yeah, the site lacks credibility Annie. Gallup is a respected poll.
