Funn, I didn't hear anyone this weekend complain about the Supreme Courts decision to hand our elections over to the very corporations they say have highjacked our politicians. Odd isn't it?
CNN presented a number of reports from Nashville in an attempt to uncover what the tea party protesters and movement are all about. Any serious evaluation by the pundits would have to include a down right fear anyone would want to turn policy over to these low information right wing fringers.
Name calling? Not a chance. Extrapolate the consequences of deregulation, small government and private control of our country. Can you say utter social chaos. One individual said he wanted to get rid of seat belt laws and environmental controls. Another said there was a governmental assault on capitalism, our friend capitalism. The very capitalism that tanked the world economy. Tea party goers must think the Great Recession was a fluke, ignoring the end result of lost family incomes , health care coverage, jobs and employment security.
How many of the 600 attendees applauded Tom Tancredo's bigoted and racist rant? It sounded like alot. If you thought that was scary, it only gets worse.
NY Times: Ms. Palin gave the Tea Party crowd exactly what they wanted to hear, declaring the primacy of the Tenth Amendment in limiting government powers, complaining about the bailouts and the “generational theft” of rising deficits, and urging the audience to back conservative challengers in contested primaries.
“How’s that hopey-changey thing workin’ out for you?” She blasted him for rising deficits, “apologizing for America” in speeches in other countries, and for allowing the so-called Christmas bomber to board a plane headed for the United States, saying he was weak on the war on terrorism. “To win that war, we need a commander in chief, not a professor of law,” she declared.
When he asked her about the “two words that scare liberals: President Palin,” she demurred.
Palin: “I will live, I will die for the people of America. This party that we call the Tea Party, this movement, as I say, is the future of politics in America.”
When Andrew Breitbart, the founder of BigGovernment.com, introduced Ms. Palin by describing her as “the first person to tell us about the death panel,” the crowd cheered.
Palin said if President Obama continues on the path he's on today, "He's not going to win" as an incumbent candidate in 2012. Palin said Americans are becoming frustrated because he "expects us to sit down and shut up and accept" his policies. Asked specifically which policies, Palin said Obama has been condescending to the American people with his "general personality."
Palin suggested that if President Obama "played the war card" by declaring war on Iran in the next two years, the political landscape would change dramatically in his favor.
