    Its a shame really. We need Republican Tea Party candidates to run in November. I was hoping the Tea Party bubble would have lasted a little bit longer.

    It will be a distant memory by 2012 and all the Tea Baggers on this board will disavow any support of the Tea Party movement

    Conservative movement's winning streak breaks in Tuesday primaries

    A liberal viewpoint with a big spin.

    "The tea party movement is not as politically sophisticated as it needs to be," said Judson Phillips, founder of the national group Tea Party Nation. "When you have a half-dozen people calling themselves tea party candidates, you need to get them in a room, and some of them need to be willing to drop out so the tea party candidate can win. That's one of the frustrating things about this movement: It's supposed to be something other than politics as usual, but some of these folks are only looking out for themselves, and not for the country."

    The Tea Party grassroots movement is not a political party, and the candidates should not be referring to themselves as a 'Tea Party Candidate'. They should be using 'Tea Party-backed' candidate.

    I'm sorry, but are we talking about Obama and his administration here?

    Already, Sen. Robert Menendez (N.J.), chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, has released this statement: "Sharron Angle is focused on appealing to the fringe of her party.

    And Obama isn't?


    November will be a telling time, that's for sure and no one should underestimate the power of motivated angry Americans.

    We won nothing in Iraq. The opposite of win is lost. Reid is/was dead on.

    Will that be the central theme of the Reid Campaign, the Surge failed and we lost Iraq?

    Our goal was to oust Saddam's regime. And we did. Too bad you hate America so much.

    It was a loss the day we invaded.

    A loss of common sense, a loss of proper planning, a loss of US dignity, a loss of US support of human rights
