*sigh* ... never expect intelligence from anyone supporting the TPE

Sal Russo was the organizer, though specifically he used his entire consulting firm to fund, Russo Marsh & Rogers, the TPE

Sal Russo is a Republican Consultant, and founded Move America Forward in 2004, a movement to endorse Republicans in the 2004 elections. Same guy that started the Recall Gray Davis while managing Howard Kooligian's PR and consulting.

Russo was also helped manage George Pataki, Governor of New York's campaign as well as numerous other politicians all in the Republican Party.

He made his money from Republicans.
He worked for Republicans.
He then founded the Tea Party Express....
He worked on the campaigns (or someone from his firm did) of numerous Republicans in the 2008 election .. yet had no issues with policies of spending until after Obama won, later saying he founded the TPE because he was upset at run away spending.


Sal Russo is a successful consultant and strategist. He worked for the GOP because HE IS A CONSERVATIVE! There's nothing illegal about that. It may stick in the craw of liberals like yourself, but that's your problem, not mine. The TPE and TPM are conservative pac's. The fact that they are made up mainly of Republicans is to be expected; they are, after all, against liberal policies that are destroying this nation.

So your scree against him and the TPE is nothing more than liberal whining.
Frankly, I'm sick of it.


Last time I chequed we are still one nation and one people and not being split apart by the American Nazi party? Whatever happened to nation above party?

Yup, Beezzer you are right. In fact they said that exactly. That their only real goal was to ensure Obama did not get re-elected.

While I agree that he should not be re-elected, I think their main concern should be trying to get our rights back, and limiting the powers of this bloated, ineffectual, tyrannical govt.

But that is never going to happen, so I am hoping for strategic meteor strikes.

Probably better odds than the Govt. fixing it's self.


I don't think you will need to wait for strategic meteor strikes. I've felt all along, and still do, that Obama was put in place by the global elite ON PURPOSE as a fall guy. I fully expect that he will be removed from office before his term is even up and this is by design. I'm not sure if he'll follow the path of JFK or Nixon, but he is being set up to go down. They want to create a constitutional crisis, and possible race war/violence, so that they can REALLY clamp down on us.

If they wait until closer to the election, it will throw off the entire election process as well. So...I'm expecting it to happen then. Just my two bits. Take it or leave it.

First, this is one person presuming to speak for the entire party.

Secondly, the tea party is made up of former Republicans, former Democrats and Libertarians.

Thirdly, if the Tea Party sells out, then membership will move to the Constitutionalists Party, which is where most Tea Partiers probably belong.

The Constitution is not a "living" document that has to "evolve"; it is the foundation of this house, the United States of America, and if you try to change the foundation, the whole house will collapse.

Can anyone honestly say they are suprised? Personally I think it is next to impossible for any political party about to break into the main stream to -not- be absorbed into one of the power two. The Tea Party provided an outlet for some Americans to express their displeasure but once the Candidates started casting their votes -whoops!- looks the Tea Party is just the same old same old. See the thing is that this is where the voting public should put a post it on the Fridge to remind themselves that when its time to vote again that they need to replace who they put in. Only when those in Washingtom understand that they serve the public 24/7 and will have their butts put on the pavement if they don't will anything come close to getting done in the Capitol.

Too bad there is no political party named Tea Party. The Tea Party is a Political Action Committee ( PAC ). Sort of like the AARP or the NRA. They endorse candidates of many parties, including Democrats and Republicans.

Everything is suddenly a conspiracy by the left huh? My, my how far have we fallen? It is you who cannot see past the blinders both TPTB, The Baggers and the Nazi GOP party have written for you.


Well, not everything. But this is, imho.

Oh, and the GOP party is now the NAZI party, eh?



Since yet again when asked to disprove this claim your entire group in incapable of providing any proof to the contrary and are ordered under threat of exposure and expulsion to not question a thing.


What on God's Green Earth are you talking about? You want me to disprove some claim? Which claim? But be forewarned - I don't waste time trying to prove negatives, since it is *your* responsibility to prove your accusations.



And this...this was priceless!


and are ordered under threat of exposure and expulsion to not question a thing



BTW, y'all hang on every word Queen Sarah says hook, line and sinker and aren't even realizing that she's ripping each and everyone of you off via her "family vacation" which is one of the greatest scams perpitrated in recent memory so before you attack me or anyone else here you might want to write HRH Sarah a letter and tell her that you do not appreciate your hard earned money being used to finance her "vacation"!


I've never given a dime to Sarah, but all she would have to do is ask and my kingdom would be hers!


God, I wish I was on that bus trip with her! We could ditch Todd and be free to dance all night!

the TeaParty "hijacked" by the Republicans?

This was a group formed from Republican strategists, with Koch family money (an other robber barons), because they were upset and offended by the widespread looting of the Republican party.

Now the core Tea Party operatives advocate "omnipresent" looting. I suppose, that's more fair, in an evil, stupid way.

When the Social Security and "gubmint" waste that Tea Party adherents once enjoyed suddenly gets turned off because they voted for a candidate they thought was only going to screw everyone else,... well, there is going to be trouble in this country.

Go a., and talk to each other about what the tea party means -- but there isn't a Tea Party politician -- not one, who is biting the gilded hand that feeds it and helping the working class in this country. You might have thought it meant something -- but seriously, do you also believe all the marketing materials from products you buy?

Because something suddenly bothers YOU, the Republicans have spoiled the Tea Party. Get real. The mad hatter has always been serving tainted Kool Aide and it's merely your turn to put your . on the chopping block.

I agree with the first part, but, What Democratic politicians do they support? C-Street did support bible thumpers with their holy brothel in a bi-partisan manner (OK 30% Dems) -- but tell us which Democrats so we can make sure to support other Democrats in the future...

Maybe they are supporting the "Lieberman for Lieberman" party.

Can't say this is a surprise at all. Most everyone has known that the republicans had taken over the "Official" tea party.

I used to get angry when I saw this kind of crap, now it's just whatever. maybe a meteor will land on one of their rallies. That would be interesting.

Oh, they also go on to say that they will not support any 3rd party candidates, just the GOP.

Screw the tea party.

The "Tea Party Express" is NOT the "Tea Party".

The Tea Party has no leader. We're normal Americans who recognize the Socialist Marxist tendencies of the Left occupying the Oval Office.

WE will do our damnedest to ensure the GOP Nominee isn't an a$$-ki$$ing RINO.

Because the Tea Party is entirely a construct of the corporate entities and individuals that own the GOP. Now that is not to say that some people in the Tea Party don't have some strong opinions and feelings about all things political. But to continue to believe that the Tea Party is some ground up, spontaneous organization makes you merely a useful idiot.

Get away from the Tea Party, realize you are a human being and not some entity drone, and band with other human beings (Left, Right, whatever) and let's overthrow the corporate power structure that owns America. Or, you can stand in a circle and piss on each other about Obama's birth certificate. Your call.

Too many are still sleeping. 2011 and you all still think your vote really counts....LOL I'm still sick to my stomach over all the crap I had to listen to during the last election. Meaning we're in worst shape and I refuse to listen to anymore lies from actors. We're going down in flames. Depending on where you live depends on how soon you'll be feeling it. We've been conditioned to not pay attention unliess it effects us. I'm keeping my faith in God and hoping for the best. I pray that we somehow save our asses from self destruction. Peace

Anyone who thinks TPTB are going to let a "new" party come in and truly change the direction of the country is naive. They will allow the illusion to continue because it distracts from the real issues but in the end they will control the direction.

Donald Trump is a perfect example; he was either "silenced", or was part of their game all along. I believe he was silenced. Doesn't anybody find it suspicious that the White House produced a "long form" BC while the Donald had investigators looking into the issue? And then, NOBODY of any standing had the balls to question that BC? It was blatantly fake...but nobody questioned it. Am I to believe that there is not ONE person of standing in Washington who looked at that piece of trash and knew it was a scam? Yet nobody has the balls to question it.

We are finished, people. Until we, and by we I mean the entire country, take our country back, we will never truly be free again.

If the Ron Paul supporters choose to pit the Tea Party People agenst the Ron Paul with hate speech (maybe a meteor will land on one of their rallies) then I and Im sure many other people on the fence will see the Ron Paul people no different then socialist left hate machine and Paul will be done before he gets started.

I hope this OP is just another "Shill" trying to bring down Ron Paul because if the RP people feel like this and start talking like this Paul is finished.

The Tea Party will and can say what ever they like but they don't talk for all and the people will vote the way they feel.All you have to do is look at some of the clowns the TP have backed and lost.

Wow! You cannot read between the lines. Read it again. What does it not say?

What if a Tea-Party member wins the nomination? Get it?

Second, if you vote for another party, the Republicans and Third Party will lose the next election.

Period.

You would be handing Obama an instant victory; therefore, everyone supporting a third party would be sealing our fates to mandates. You will be giving the proverbial Devil the win. Obama has a series of new mandates on the horizon.

Mitt Romney has the cash and support to beat Obama, and chances are he will chose Herman Cain as his running mate.

Go with the battles you can win.

Do not forget the goal: Beat Obama at all costs.

Election 2012 is a serious voting war, which will determine the fate of this country. Even though I am not a Republican, I am using my vote to defeat Obama in 2012.

THIS IS A STRATEGIC VOTING WAR!

How did you Tea Baggers not see this coming?

Did you really think that this was going to be a viable alternative to the GOP?

I'm sorry that your delusion didn't last longer.

The Tea Party was never, ever a grassroots movement.

It was ALWAYS going to be a tool of the GOP to provoke the right into hating in a organized manner.

Maybe, after Obama wins again, your GOP handlers will let you have a new target for your hate, maybe one with a 'gay' this time...

Won't that be nice?

Now, be good little sheep and vote GOP 2012.

What do you expect them to do? They don't have enough support to win an election. I'm sure they would rather see a republican voted into office rather than Obama. The more votes they throw at some 3rd party candidate the more likely it is that Obama will win the election.

Democrats would be very lucky indeed if the Tea Party voted for a 3rd party candidate.

Am I missing something here? You're trying to say that because the Tea Party is voting for a republican in order to un-seat Obama that they are now controlled by the GOP? You have not convinced me. Your argument is lacking sufficient evidence, depth, logic, and reason.

Although, I think the Idealistic Tea Party younglings could learn a thing or two from the GOP. It's pretty pathetic that John had to explain to them that they are only in control of 1/2 of 1/3 of the government.
