The idea that no solution exists never occurs to them & in this lies their strength

    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.

    You're both arrogant and condescending.

    Happy now?

    I expect nothing more from you; sadly, that's all you've got.

    The solution to our problems in Washington lies in the people themselves, as usual. If we stop giving up our ability to govern ourselves, there will be less corruption in Washington.

    But they do.
    Elect Representatives and Senators that are for the Constitution and not the parties.

    Its the same ole same ole from the bigots on the right-"Cut spending, lower taxes"- as if thats any sort of solution to our economic crisis. Obama, Pelosi, and Reid, with their willingness to spend more in wise, productive ways, and their embrace of realistic (and yes higher) taxes are a breah of fresh air.:clap2:

    As usual those on the right, Tea Baggers (I really enjoy posting that term) and neo-Republicans don't really have any ideas. They're stuck on - as noted above - cut taxes, cut spending, reduce the size of government and then they dance the Henny Penny Polka ("Oh NO! The sky is falling")
    Nowhere do the 'dudes' and dudettes ever express an idea, a suggestion or a hint that they have ever thought through the problem of (pick one) Illegal Immigration; Job Creation; Deficits; Economic Crisis' in the several states, healthcare, border security, etc. etc.
    Any 'ideas' are solely based on emotion, never critical thinking or concern for the consequences of what the action may produce.
