Who here believes that the Tea Party is a grassroots organization? Anybody? Anybody?
OK JoePostingBot, show us what evidence you have that it's not.
Let me guess...It's a front group for Koch Industries.
Oh gawd...another dope on the scene. How quaint.
The term implies that the creation of the movement and the group supporting it are natural and spontaneous, highlighting the differences between this and a movement that is orchestrated by traditional power structures.
OH I don't believe it started OUT as a movement orchestrated by traditional power structures.. BUT it certainly now HAS major clout with most GOP and some Democrats that also are part of the Tea Party!
Remember this was all an outgrowth of:
CNBC commentator Rick Santelli were the origins of the modern Tea Party movement. ..
Team Obama is rewarding bad behavior. It is enlarging moral hazard. It is expanding its welfarist approach to economic policy. And with a huge expansion of government-owned zombie lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Team Obama is taking a giant step toward nationalizing the mortgage market. . .
Reporting from the Chicago commodity pits, my CNBC colleague Rick Santelli unleashed a torrent of criticism against this scheme. Santelli said: Government is promoting bad behavior. . . . Do we really want to subsidize the losers mortgages? This is America! How many of you people want to pay for your neighbors mortgage? President Obama, are you listening? How about we all stop paying our mortgages! Its a moral hazard.

Forgive me. I guess it's just coincidence that Tea Partiers have done everything in their power to increase the political clout and wealth of the Koch brothers.
I believe it! Sarah Palin said so one time in 08, so it must be true.
You really seem to have the gift of gab. I always know I've won when the responses become jpgs.
And you have the gift if inanity.
Unfortunately, this forum is already loaded down with those equally "gifted".
