I'm curious about something. Fourteen GOP freshman have Tea Party connections. PPP (a questionable poll) says four are in trouble. That doesn't sound like an implosion. Especially when you consider that they come from Illinois, Minnesota, and New Hampshire, states that are not traditionally friendly to Republicans. The fourth, Allen West, is incredibly outspoken and it's difficult to tell whether his substance or his style is the problem.

Interestingly, of the four freshmen you mention, three are listed as "toss-ups" by Real Clear Politics. Only the Representative from Illinois is currently favored to lose. This doesn't sound like an implosion either. Have you anything else to suggest the Tea Party has lost influence?

Important Topic Updates

The Tea Party gets a news site

Well it Finally is happening !!

Maybe they are getting ready for a big win next week ?


Tea Party conservatives are getting their very own news site.

The Tea Party News Network, self-described as "the only trusted news source and the antidote to mainstream media bias," is already live but will announce its launch tomorrow morning, with plans to start live video on election day. TPNN claims to have a "war room of 40-plus volunteers" who will operate out of the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, and has established partnerships with the Talk Radio Network and radio host Rusty Humphries, who will be co-anchoring the election night coverage.

(Also on POLITICO: Media stumped by 2012 outcome)

"There are plenty of news websites out there, but there isn’t one that caters directly to Tea Party conservatives, providing activists with coverage and opinion that matters to them. The Tea Party News Network changes that," Todd Cefaratti, editor of the Tea Party News Network, said in a statement for the forthcoming press release.

As with many right-wing news sites, TPNN puts heavy emphasis on the anti-mainstream media message: "We don’t need our supposed betters in the mainstream media telling us which stories matter or what we should think. We don’t mindlessly mimic the talking points of Washington leaders. The Tea Party movement now has a home for news it can trust."....................

The Tea Party gets a news site



btw..... they are already up....
Welcome to the Tea Party News Network


Is MSNBC stark raving jealous yet ?

Do you understand how easy it is to create a website? It's not much of an accomplishment....it's actually kind of sad. The TP should have already of had a website for a few years now. Late start.

But then again, the primary age group of the TP are senior citizens, who do not understand what the internet is.

The Tea Party is full of anti-democratic party, constitutionalists, libertarians, and want to reform the "republican" party back to common sense conservatives -- and I'm proud to be one.

You don't hear alot about us because we're not whiney. we don't play the victim card. we just go about our business.

Speaking AS a Tea Party member, I resent the term fascist when all we want is personal responsibility, smaller government, and a return to individuality.

Anything else is bull-poopoo when used to describe the Tea Party.


This is ALL extremely vague. When you mean personal responsibility and smaller government, do you believe that the victims of Sandy should have to fend for themselves? Do you believe in any social programs designed to help people? Do you think the USA should go back to a wild west society where clans and regional gangsters control things?

Every time I see conservatives trotting out these vague and nonsensical brain farts they can never seem to answer the important questions. It's great to have an idea of a utopia where everyone can fend for themselves, but we DO NOT LIVE in a utopia where that is possible, or even plausible.

All I see from conservatives who support this theory is statements about how they would *like things to be*. They never seem to have solutions to societies problems, and they ignore the larger problems their haphazard ideas of anarchy would create.

Incidentally, those same conservatives who bang on incessantly about "smaller government" and "personal responsibility" never seem to have a problem with larger CONSERVATIVE government, controlling women's right to choose (personal responsibility and freedom), restricting rights for gay people, bailing out bankers... those things seem to slip right by them


Republicans and conservatives are generally the most hypocritical and nonsensical people I have ever encountered.


Did you ever to stop to consider that by simply having less government, most "problems" go away and don't require "Solutions". No one is advocating for anarchy.

BTW, you have fallen prey to the left-leaning MSM's definition of the Tea Party - not the actual group. You've been SUCKA'd!!!

I should know... I'm an avowed libertarian and Tea Party member.

Sure. Conservatives that vote for the NDAA, CiSPA, and corporate welfare?

In what reality? all they do is whine about Obama, communists, Muslims, liberals, taxes, Mexicans, welfare recipients, on and on and on....

I'm checking in with you because, after all, it is your thread.

So, for those of us keeping score at home, we've pretty much demolished the idea that the poll numbers show any real trouble for the Tea Party, and we've moved on to why you don't like them? Just want to keep everything straight.

1. Tea party voting records don't lie
2. Recorded statements of Tea Partiers don't lie.
3. I've been around TP people when going to RP rallys with my friend.

This has absolutely nothing to do with the myth of the liberal media.


We're quiet, we're strong, do some of your own research.


Strong at face stomping women and verbally abusing the terminally ill?






88% of the GOP and 71% of freedom loving Tea Partiers voted in support of CISPA

44 Tea Party members voted for the NDAA

Yes professor, I do know !!

Your fascinations are running wild.

There's more young and middle aged TP members than you think.

Are you getting that tingly icy feeling lately ?

The entire Democrat / Liberal structure is crumbling.

Obama & Co. is melting like snow in Cuba.

Nah, republicans are going to go extinct, they know and even admit this;

Sen. Lindsey Graham: Republicans ‘not generating enough angry white guys’


This week, the Republican Party, which is reportedly 92 percent white, has struggled to find minority speakers to take the stage at their convention. While former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, former Democratic Rep. Arthur Davis and Utah congressional candidate Mia Love all performed well, they were speaking to a crowd of overwhelmingly white faces. In fact, only 2 percent of Republican delegates are black.

Graham told the The Washington Post that it’s just a matter of time before changing demographics catch up with his party.

The demographics race we’re losing badly [sic],” the senior senator from South Carolina explained. “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”


www.rawstory.com...

It's all a matter of time.

Tick.

Tock.

The Occupy movement outnumbered the Tea Party 100x over anyway....

Half of the tea-baggers are politically confused, like this lady, at a Tea Party rally and unknowingly advocates for socialism.

I thought we were talking about the Tea Party ?

60 million voted for McCain in 2008

70 million voted for Obama in 2008

in 2010.....

The Tea Party became a pivotal player in the Republicans’ successful bid to take control of the House of Representatives in the 2010 midterm elections. In those elections, four in 10 voters expressed support for the movement in exit polls. Those figures, and victories at the polls, underscored the extent to which Republicans and Democrats alike may have underestimated the power of the party, a loosely affiliated coalition of libertarians and disaffected Republicans.
Tea Party Movement



What do ya think will happen this time .......


Voters have completely Had IT up to HERE with the Obama LOCOmotive !!
 


Edit after your edit:
You keep showing those staged videos !!

Your mind is playing tricks again.

Another bunker-buster video presented to you by:


Uploaded by MaoistRebelNews2 on Jul 5, 2010

This is great, tea baggers have no idea what they promoting!




It's commie time !!

Where's Grampaw Karl ? He's in that video somewhere right ?


Maoist Rebel News

MaoistRebelNews - Communpedia version

MaoistRebelNews is a Marxist-Leninist Maoist who talks about things that are happening in the media and is a reporter of sorts. He started out his media related buisness in 2009 and was shut down twice by trolling YouTube users as revenge for proving them wrong[1]. He is against the Mises Insitute, an zelous school of "learning", that is in truth, a right-winged propaganda school (there is not much information we have at the moment, we are still reseaching to see what we can see). As of now, Maoist Rebel News has been debunking much of western and european media in order to reveal the truths of what they mean. He is as well as an anti anarcho-capitalist and is against Troskyists[citation needed] as well (he was virtually assaulted on Revleft, once. There will be a link in the description).

What is the point of that? It says where the video is from. He went to a Tea Party Rally and asked questions to people there....isn't hard to understand that from the video.

Most right wingers have no clue what socialism is....I could do the same thing if I went to a TP even and asked the question in that manner.
