IF She wants to join, then she can. What's the big deal. If
she starts spouting something totally partisan, then she'll be booted out by the members. But if she agrees with the fundamental rights by the movement, then why not? Hell, I'd like to see some democrats join, completely jump ship and say, "Ya know, they're right!"

Your right she can. But I wouldn't expect anymore people crossing party lines to come over to the tea party movement anymore if Sarah Palin is going to be at the helm. She goes against everything the original movement stood for, you know the movement that attracted people from all partys, races and genders. I could hardly see that contiuing with Palin going to the show. The only people who want to here Palin speak are Repubs, not the other 70% of the country, so I dont' see how this could be a good thing at all. You seen her poll numbers lately?

This just gives a partisan vibe to the whole thing now, and i'm sure it's gong to ruin it for alot of people.

Only time will tell.

Errr, Palin is even worse than Obama. If that's possible.

They throw Palin in the bunch to discredit the movement.

Right now, any opposition against the admin isn't being welcomed, and to throw her in there is to piss a lot of people off.

I wouldn't be surprised if 50% of the TP movement were disgruntled republicans, but a LOT of people couldn't wait for the Bush and practices and policies to end, and instead of blowing gaskets, they waited for change.

When the new boss is basically the same as the old boss in many ways, people have had it.

Fed up is an understatement, and Palin is there to make it look bad.

You may be right. As a former republican (I should start "republicans anonymous") I am disgusted with the party. But, if she embraces the values put forth by the Tea Party movement, then it might be a good thing.

I'm just sayin'. . . .

Yeah, it's a shame that the Tea Partys had to be turned into a bunch of partisan BS.

The last one I went to half were original tea partiers, and half were new comers, half of the new comers were partisan as hell, all I heard was 'obama this obama that' and 'lord I wish we had Bush back in the White House'. But I do live in alabama so the bush comment might make some sense because this is an extremely red state.

But like I said, before this didn't have to do with a certain party, it had to do with both parties, now it's become a repub vs. dem movement. The last I went to I couldn't even talk bad about bush without getting tons of dirtyly looks and a few boos, and then they looked at me crazy when I bashed Obama to because I guess they thought you were either for one party or the other, The logic of some people astounds me.

Palin will advance whatever benefits herself. She's the biggest self promoter around, whatever she can do to attempt to keep the spotlight light on herself is the way she will go.
But lets be real guys, YOU might be some disgruntled independent, but most of the tea party people are simply Obama hating sore losers that voted McCain/Palin. And the whole "movement" is pretty irrelevant anyway, it only matters to internet folks like yourselves.

That wasn't my point, the point was that she couldn't even name one, which makes me think that she doesn't do much reading at all, which is a no no. All she said was I like them all, and then stumbled the rest of the way. And that wasn't it, That was just the first example that popped in my head, the whole of the interviews was a disaster.

Obama didn't quit untill after being elected, I hate defending the man, but that is a boldfaced lie, but you probably already knew that.

And sara should have addressed everything, beggining with the most pressing of issues, and monetary policy is issue number one. I've never heard her talk about monetary policy, ever. She does have alot of free time on her hands to talk about anything, but she chooses to ignore this issue.

And Tea Parties were held before the election, have you even been to any of the tea parties that have went on after the election, for the most part they have turned into a bunch of partisan bs, before they were non-partisan and against both parties. Palin will do nothing but divide this movement, Palin can unite Repubs but that's about it, she couldn't unite the dems and independants, the polls show that and her social views speak for themselves.

Palin is probably on Obama's side, and is just trying to discredit a legitimate movement.

The Powers want you to think only racist rednecks don't like Obama. Which is so far from the truth. I'm a "liberal" and I support them.

Palin doesn't agree with the fundamentals of the original tea party movement. This movement was mainly started for monetary policy and personal liberties and being against the wars in the middle east, the first Palin knows nothing about, the later Palin would go along with and start more wars with the same currency that is based on nothing.


The movement has evolved. It is now a demonstration against politicians that do not listen to constituents. It is against larger gov't, such as Obamacare. It is against uncontrolled spending, such as the bailouts and the budget.

Palin will energize the voters. She will destroy the socialist policies of Obama, and castrate the gutless RINOs. And that is what scares people.

Most of the tea party people would have never voted for McCain, the tea party movement was against both of the presidential candidates before the election, it got hijacked after the election.

And Obama isn't? He's been on more magazine covers, tv shows than a naked Denise Richards!!!
And your characterization of the Tea Party movement is right off the Keith Olbermann playbook. Where'd you get your info from? Jennine Garafalo?

Obama? Is that really you? Why you sly dog, you!

Could you please give me an example why anyone should be scared? The polls show that independants don't really care for her, and neither do dems. She can't win an election without bringing some people over to her side, like dems and independents. She scares them all away. You can't win an election with less than 30% of the country behind you, which is republicans.

Like I've said numerous times, how do you expect Palin to unite anyone when it has been shown again and again that the only group she unites is republicans?

Oh please, spare the cliches.
Anybody with half a brain, left or right should be able to see right through her.
also kinda dumb comparision of Palin and Obama, see Obama IS THE FREAKIN PRESIDENT! Of course he's in the news. Palin is what, EX governor of Alaska, best known for quiting and being plucked from obscurity by a desperate, and losing McCain.

I predicted this a month or so ago. She is going to try to take Ron Pauls place. The groundwork for this has been being laid for a while now.

She will get more votes than Paul though. She already has some supporters and with America on the verge of waking up to the real power players. She could get a ton of support or she could fail miserably, only time will tell.

Think about who she has attacked. Big Government, The Media, Good Old Boys Network. Who does this sound like ? Like it or not it sounds like a lot of ATS members...

I think she's a part of the Good Old Boys plan though. She's meant to lead this movement, right into the ground.

We spend all day distrusting politicians. And for good reason. Now if someone were to join the democratic party, it would be because they have become enlightened?

If someone joined the republican party it would be because they want, what? More money for the evil greed-heads?


But if Palin joins the Tea Party, she is doing it because she is seeking fame, abusing the system, using these poor people, lying through her teeth, want money, kick small kittens, and is not to be trusted?

Puuuuleeese!

edited to put Palin in instead of "someone"

Your right, but original tea party supporters will see right through it.

It's a shame.
