At risk of being called arrogant and consescending I suggest this thread best characterizes both the Tea Party and neo-Republican Party adherents. It seems each has come down to this pharse, "aint't it awful". The former oppose government, and there is no doubt there is reason to be disgusted with how those elected officials in government today have performed, and the latter oppose Demcorats, claiming they will be different (this time, even though they helped create the mess). But neither the Tea Party nor neo-Republicans offer an alternative, at least one that is viable and a practical soluton to the mess made by Washington. Ain't if awful Obama... Ain't if awful Pelosi... Ain't if awfu Reid... Whiners all.
