    Is the tea party happy that Standard and Poor's, the credit rating agency, downgraded the United States' credit rating for the first time ever?

    You'd think that was the case if you were in the crowd at a tea party rally in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, on Sunday morning. The Tea Party Express rolled into that northeastern city as part of its tour to bolster the six GOP state senators facing recall elections on Tuesday. But the most shocking moment of the event wasn't the vitriol spouted by tea party leaders, which has dominated news of the tour stops in recent days. Instead it was the cheers that erupted when one of the Tea Party Express' speakers described the recent downgrade as the tea party's fault.

    Here's what happened: Midway through the Fond du Lac event, Florida talk show host Andrea Shea King took the stage. She told the audience that commentators were describing the downgrade of US debt to AA+ from AAA as the "tea party downgrade," laying the blame squarely on Congress' right-wing faction and its supporters. But rather than boo those who claim the tea party caused the downgrade, the 200 or so Wisconsinites in attendance cheered, sounding almost proud to be blamed for the downgrade.

    Of course they laughed. The tea party movement in this country has been called all kinds of names--racists--last week--terrorists by the Vice President of the United States--and John Kerry and David Axelrod--Obama kiss asse's--described the downgrade as a downgrade against the tea party.

    There were NOT laughing because the S & P downgraded United States debt. They did everything they could to prevent a downgrade. They have been out there for 2-1/2 years with signs across this nation describing this nations debt--and the fear and worry--over this debt--and what it is going to do to future generations.

    And what's really LAUGHABLE--is every time one of these moron politicians comes out and attacks average--law abiding--tax paying citizens of this country--the tea party movement in this country GROWS in leaps and bounds. And that was what the applause & laughter was about.

    And they did too-and plan on doing it again in 2012--LOL
