    In a town hall meeting yesterday Obama said "The challenge of the Tea Party is to identify what would you do".

    Well they have Barry....but you ain't listening.

    It's not good enough to claim your opposition doesn't have a clear message. It helps if you listen to that message in the first place.

    Since it's inception the Tea Party movement has been about spending. Too much of it. That pretty obvious. The Tea Party is against all of the spending that's been going on. Obama admits now that he has been spending too much but he's now asking what would we cut. Then he gives us a list of programs that he had nothing to do with....that has been in place for decades. This is a dishonest response because what the Tea Party fears is all of the "NEW" spending that is going on. Not the "OLD" spending.

    What the Tea Party fears is "NEW" taxes...not "OLD" taxes. A proposed Value Added Tax (VAT). To pay off all of the old and new spending the Obama administration is saying now that everything is on the table including instituting a new tax that will only grow over time. A tax that will be added to every product and service at every level in our economy...from the manufacturer to the consumer.

    The second thing Tea Party members fear is that all of the new spending is forcing the government to allow the Bush tax cuts to expire. The panic that many Democrats show is obvious because now they're proposing letting them stay in place....but not for the rich.

    This points out another lie. The slogan "Tax-cuts for the rich" is really a tax-cut for everyone. It also shows the weakness in their progressive ideology. If these tax-cuts caused the recession why in the hell would you even consider leaving any of them in place?

    The Tea Party has been painted as racist, homophobes, terrorists, you name it. What they are is just a group of concerned Americans that see a government that is bent on destroying our way of life. Ether Democrats can't show them any future benefits of their failed policies or there aren't any. That is the reason the Tea Party was formed. But in all honesty if Obama refuses to listen what's the point of answering his question.

    obama reminds me of the kid standing in the corner of the high school, pants on the flag pole, eyes clamped shut, incessantly repeating "they can't see me, they can't see me......"

    Last week all but two Republican Senators voted against a bill that cut taxes on small businesses.

    The problem with average Joe's on message boards is this:

    You can't just say "cut spending," and further, you can't even say WHERE you'd cut spending, until you have a thorough understanding of everything suggested cuts will effect, weighing the benefit analysis vs. the cons, etc.

    You're all just simple minded idiot fucks who act like you have some in depth understanding of how a very complex fucking Government works when it's Miles-high over your loo-loo heads.

    If I were President, I'd have a foul mouth. It would go something like this:

    "What's your Genius Idea, since I'm just a Community Organizer?"

    Tea Bagger: Cut spending
    Pres.: Ok, where dick-head?
    TEa Bagger: Ummm, over there.
    Pres.: Ok, present me your cost/benefit analysis.
    Tea Bagger: Ummm..wuss dat>?
    Pres.: Not so simple, is it dick head?
    Tea Bagger: Yea, you just think I'm a racist b/c I disagree with you.
    Pres(smacks forehead): Thanks again, Fox!
    Tea Bagger: The Pres. is so weak he cares about lil' ole' Fox news.

    Even so, do you have an analysis to its effects?

    What percentage do we have to outspend other 21st Century Nations in order to maintain a viable leadership on the world stage? What role does that viable leadership role play in the health and prosperity of our Country? etc..............etc..................STUDY.
