    Anyone guesses that the Tea Party doesn't go near the stuff. Point One is that Conservative Republicans don't seem to go near the Tea Party, and Point Two is that lost in the national debate: Is the Democratic Refundable Tax Credit in the Stimulus Package. Is is worth about $65.00 per month, but only about 10% of the 95% of taxpayers affected: Even Noticed. The GOP opposed it since it was clearly a tax cut, which they don't favor(?)!

    The Tea Party seems to have opted for the "Three Blind Mice," scenario instead. They want federal outlays returned to 1789 levels--Apparently Constitutional--Clearly intending to take away the $65.00 per month(?), and more. . . .or less(?). The House Republicans put blocking of all further Stimulus forever: At the Centerpiece of their Pledge polish agenda for America.

    Now people can guess just what they have been drinking, after all(?)!

    On the one hand, GOP Tea Party claims that Tax Cuts will provide a better stimulus. On the other hand the GOP Tea Part wants to take the Tax Cuts in the Stimulus away. Again, the GOP contention is to go back to the original Bush Tax Cuts--which did nothing for 40% of federal income tax filers. The agenda is take the money in the pockets of the 40% away! It is there because of the Stimulus.

    Somewhere, a journalist actually noticed this(?), probably not in the Tea Party, or a staffer in the GOP House Caucus(?).

    Clearly, Teaching is not possible at any grade level, without the doctoral degree, unless it is believed that some kids are better than the other kids, and that all the other kids are not worth the extra effort!

    "Freedom" is like that in the Party of Bush II, Terms I and II. If Ben Bernanke is actually data driven, it may only be in comparison with the Republicans: Who are clearly not!

    (Famous Black with Basketball dialect, even, finally sold off Laker's owneship of "Slam Dunk" affairs! GOP candidate for Nevada Senate: Maybe think it's all about Asians(?). . .who bear a strong resemblance to Moslems. . .who all look like Mexicans. . . famous for hula hoops!(?). . ." Like in American Samoa. . . .Which doesn't have the vote(?)! New "ship 'em back to," exercise, maybe under way. . . .where many may or may not be illegal. . . .according to California GOP(?)!)

    The more that people know about the Obama Administration, the more likely they would likely be willing to express an approval of the Obama Administration.

    Yahoo has picked up on the report that most people don't know about the tax cuts the Democrats created. Like Many more now know, and even among likely voters.

    "Leaning" and "Toss-up" voters mainly need to become informed about the elections, and follow their pocket-books in the elections, and sense their better prospects: Given the elections.

    Obama represents the United States in the 21st Century. The Tea Party GOP is openly and avidly running for a return to the 18th Centruy. People like myself, of arrivals in the 17th Century--The same family surname as Senator Gregg, and with the same floppy ears problem, (a widely shared trait, whenever the surnamed meet)--have no need for that return. In the last century, even Great Disney: Showed us an elephant, with giant floppy ears, who could fly.

    The United States Senate has been showing off: All the proof that it needs about the more modern phenomenon.

    Democrats can gather and shout the refrain, "Jump!" "Jump!" "Come On, Judd!" "You Can do it, you're a United States Senator!"

    Even Senator John McCain has unking things to say about his colleagues in the Senate of the United States of America!

    This sure fooled me. It doesn't explain the massive bloodletting that's about to take place in a couple of weeks though.

    The Mitch McConnel/Rand Paul/David Boehner/Sara Palin/John McCain, anti-Stimulus, anti-tax minority is precisely that.

    Their campaign pledge is to take away the stimulus, take away the tax cuts, take away the health insurance, and take away any federal legislation on the books since even to 1289: If they get everything they are for.

    That is not majority, or informed, or internation readiness kinds of thinking or pollicy agenda.

    The Constitution if for things like "Congrefs" and "defence" and other concepts that the courts had to interpret, and then interpreted. The Tea Party Contract takes judicial review away from the courts, and puts into a "Blue Ribbon Commision," and likely of fear-crazed billionaires.

    So with the messages getting out into the public consciousness, then the Obama ratings are trending back to "approve!" People who actually say they oppose National Health Insurance, actually approve the line-by-line provisions.

    Trending does take a mood shift, which appears to be happening in the approval ratings of Obama.
