    What were the tea partiers before the tea party? This seems to be the biggest problem I have with the tea party people. Before the TP they were Republicans. It was Republican policy that lead to this mess we are now in. The example of eight years of GWB is what I use.

    Now the Republicans are tied to GWB, and people are leary of the Republicans as they should be. The TP people have changed their name but have they changed anything else? They were all for GWB when it came to getting him elected and then elected again. GWB could do no wrong, even as he was expanding government, starting wars based on lies, giving tax breaks, and not paying for any of them. When GWB had destroyed the Republican name the Democrats moved in with Obama.

    Rather than restoring the Republican name the just changed their name. Instead of taking responsibility for GWB and his policies they ran away and changed their name. What are they going to change their name to next when this experiment fails. As of now they claim not to have a leader, and operate in the general idea catagory. Shouting about cutting spending, and smaller government is great but without a leader to focus them and refine their message what good are they. The people they are leaving the enacting of their wishes to are the Republicans.

    This is not an endorsement of the Democrats, Liberals, or Obama. Lord knows their solutions haven't been stallar so far, but they are not the Republicans.

    What the hell, the Tea Party isn't taking responsibility for Bush, we just threw out a few entrenched Commie lites from the Republican party along with a lot of Commie Democrats in this last election. And we have giving a clear warning to Republicans, you don't get back to your principles, we will come after you in the next election.

    So if that isn't taking responsibility for Bush and some the crap he caved in on then I don't what is.

    The problem with Liberals-Democrats they don't hold their elected officials to any STANDARDS and just keep reelecting them over and over.

    Bush fooled you guys, but he didn't fool me, and that is my point. I jumped up and down trying to make you guys see him for what he was, but you refused to listen. Instead you helped elect him to a second term. Now you want me to believe your fed up? what happens when the next GWB rolls along? We can't afford another eight years of that. Before I hitch up to your wagon you need to do several things, the first is selecting a leader, the second is comming up with a specific plan of how to fix our problems, the last thing is to prove that you will stay out of social politics. Without a leader you are just a mob.

    You claim you did alot by throwing out Democrats and republicans, but what did you replace them with? Throwing out is the easy part, putting someone of quality 'in' is the hard part. You gave a warning? a warning? The world warned Hitler too, and look where that got us.

    "The problem with Liberals-Democrats they don't hold their elected officials to any STANDARDS and just keep reelecting them over and over."

    Just like John McCain and every other carreer politician. Don't you see that they are giving you lip service. The Republicans and Democrats in office now will say anything to get elected, move anywhere to get elected, and they will morph into anything to stay on the governemtn tit. They have a great wage and benefits, do you think they are going to give those up without a fight? They work for the corporations not us.

    Look at what you offered as an alternative? Look at the name brand you offered? When you get burned by a product as bad as we got burned you become a little gun shy. As I stated before furhter back in the thread this is not an endorsement of the Liberals, or Democrats, or Obama.

    You don't understand the T.E.A. Party or why it was started. It stands for small government that's why both the Democrats AND the Republicans are trying to minimize their effects.

    I see Obama as a clone of Bush, apparently you don't.

    I understand the T.E.A. Party and I understand why it was started, what I don't understand is why they won't give me someone other than a Republican to vote for, and why they always talk like other politicians... in vague generalities. i.e smaller government (how do you plan on getting to smaller government, exactly)

    As for clones:
    I understand that the Republicans will take my money and give it to the rich.
    I understand that the Democrats will take my money and give it to the poor.
    Either way they take my money, I get to choose who gets it. a shitty choice.

    This average Joe LOVES the Tea-Party!! Don't change a fucking thing! You guys are doing a fine job of driving moderates and libertarians into the democratic party. And getting libertarians to move like that is like herding cats.

    No, no, NO! Don't change a fucking thing - especially the leadership...
