    The tea party has no intention of publicly humiliating itself by 'counter-demonstrating' occupy. The tea party is focusing on what drives change, quietly, consistenly pushing "change".

    Forward! Lemmings.

    The democrats will have to step back and see how they can spin it. I bet Soros' tax exempt media matters people are going through Mourdock's school records as we speak. Lugar did not look well when he spoke to the media. It's an insulting way for a career politician to end up and he should have seen it coming.

    not sorry to see him go. I much prefer Republicans who wont trade our sovereignty away. I hope the Tea Party Republican is one.

    BTW I guess the Tea Party's demise was greatly exagerated.

    Lugar was at best a moderate. Good to see him go. Another notch for the T.E.A. party.

    The right are a tolerant bunch. Always promoting individualism as long as the individualism marches in lock step

    Right. So your theory is that genuine individualism would require us to support a candidate who opposes individualism?

    I'm not looking for individualism in a candidate. I'm looking for one who votes the way I want him to vote.

    Scratch one RINO.
