TRUE! When you allow money to rule your politicians, you HAVE to expect them to want to take YOURS! Which is EXACTLY why R's now want to SPREAD out the tax base to middle classes and below to pay MORE TAXES! It's all about trying to take as MUCH money from YOU as possible until you're bankrupt, THEN it's OK to put you on GOVERNMENT welfare, and they'll take THAT too. Maybe we should all do like Bachmann, become SWISS SOCIALIST citizens!

Same old canned rhetoric.

Try to comprehend this...
Romeny is a capitalist.
Obama is a socialst.


Seriously? The establishment polar politicians spend all their time pulling catch phrases out of their political goodie grab-bags (case in point). Capitalist? Socialist? Is it really that simple? I'm from MA. Was Romeny a capitalist when he created RomneyCare for us? These labels are meaningless to anyone except for those with an overly simplistic view of how things work. They are a convenient means of pigeon-holing people into neat, orderly little packages. Fact is, Romney is a bag man. He'll do and say whatever he is instructed to do and say. Same for Obama. Same for Bush, etc. These people have no real power. Was there any siesmic shift when Obama took office? Nope. Business as usual. When the Republicans 'took control' in 2010? Nope. Business as usual. The rich are getting richer, we're getting screwed and left holding the bag, government continues to take away our Constitutionally guaranteed rights and liberties, teh top dogs openly flaunt the laws and game the system for their personal gain. REAL capitalism died a very long time ago. We live in an age of corporate piracy and oportunism. Real capitalsim would not eat it's own young.

James Carville is the only one awake for the dems.

He is telling them to "Wake up!"

Out with the old and in with the new.

Tea Party firepower gave the liberals a shellacking in November 2010.

Liberals are sensing pending doom November 2012.

- Tea Party Alive & Well -


Lets see...

A small bunch of ineffective, corporate, media-backed right-wingers screaming about Obama being "Hitler" and how bailing out the banks is wrong - all while conveniently forgetting that their own president Bush started the bailouts and created the most draconian removal of the rights of Americans ever seen, versus hundreds of thousands of union members, students, the unemployed, the homeless and the generally disaffected who actually UNDERSTAND that this goes far beyond divisive party politics...

Hmm.

Time to abandon the partisan ranting of the Tea Party and accept that many want the same things. The Tea Party died with its credibility a long time ago, it was replaced by a genuine movement of people who understand that corporate involvement in the democratic process is the main problem.

The Tea Party threw Nancy Pelosi out of her office.

Now she is the minority leader.

Mission Accomplished!

--------

Step 2: Make Harry Reid a minority leader.


---------

Step 3: Push a capitalist in the front door of the White House.

---------
Step 4: Reduce the size of government

The T.E.A. party gets results at the election booths. What has camping in a downtown public park got you? Besides Ecoli and an arrest record?

Lugar had to go. There are few things I hate more then when a "Republican" in office acts like a Democrat. Bush Jr that means you too during your last 3 years.

They're all just moving chess pieces around the board while they continue the same agenda behind the scenes. We're being systematically screwed while this game of politics is played to distract and divide us.

Not so much. There is a bigger difference between the two:
Romney is a corporate fascist.
Obama is a fascist corporatist.

Oh wait...

Romney = Grow the Private Sector - Bring back the Green Bar surpluses

A look at Mr Mourdock reveals a total nutcase who seems to think that bi-partisanship is the other side giving up all the time. Oh and he was against the Detroit bailout, which means that he's an idiot as well. Should be interesting to see the Republican trainwreck that's coming...

The liberal train wreck is already here. - The last job growth numbers are terrible.-

I can see it in the eyes of David Axelrod.

He is already complaining about the SuperPacs.

At least you have job growth numbers in the US. Here in the UK (by the way my wife is American, hence my interest in US politics) our austerity-mad Conservative Chancellor of the Exchequer has driven the economy into a double-dip recession. We have a flat-lining economy here, so we're quite jealous of you lot.

It seems to me that the only ranting I hear is by OWS.
You have to admit, the Tea Party is a "bit" more reserved since they clean their areas when they leave, they don't break windows, they don't crap in the streets and they don't sell drugs. As a matter of fact, the only time I hear bullhorns at Tea Party rallies are the ones on stage. (And most of them work. That's why the rallies are on weekends.)

Boy, that's really going to attract the voters in the general election.


What's next, taking a firm stand against women's suffrage?

Senator Lugar was already in trouble because of some doubt that he had maintained his necessary residence. His defeat at the polls did not come as a great surprise, and while he was a liberal Republican -- who was abandoned by most of the Republican Party when he cooperated on a foreign policy effort with the President -- his defeat in the primary by a teabagger only increases the odds that the Democrat may win in the November election.

The Tea Party is basking in the glow of our victory in Indiana.

We are now E N E R G I Z E D !

You are quite welcome to move to the United States.

Come on over. Pick a red state like Arizona.

We have a lot of reasonably priced houses for sale. Go to Zillow.com.

When the UK gets its act together you can move back.

This time next year the USA will be back on track. We just need to get rid of

the socialist in the White House.

That is an overstatement. They failed to meet expectations but 115,000 jobs were added. Not the numbers we would like to see ( but I have a feeling the teabaggers would be cheering if there was an actual loss of jobs last month) but a gain nonetheless.

What has been overlooked by many on last Fridays job numbers is that the previous months number had an upward revision from 120,000 to 154,000. That is 4 straight months of upward revisions to the jobs number. This is a strong signal that things are indeed improving as the job numbers are often understated when an economy is exiting a recession.

Bob Beckel from The Five also conceded that Indiana has in fact gone red.

Eric Bolling: Okay, we'll take that.
