    They are bearing a pall.

    Well, the indications, based on 2010, are not good for the poor Republicans in Indiana. The media aren’t making this up — Americans don’t have a lot of tolerance for hatred and obstructionism.

    To the tea party (ada NSDAP) and its followers: Sen. Lugar aside, be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.

    And forcing a senator, a good one, one that got things done, out of office is a noble thing to do? Replacing him with a hardcore, no-compromise partisan hack will help the nation? Having only pure breed, ideology sound social conservatives (and don’t give me that horse manure about “it’s just about the deficit”, look at the laws being passed) will somehow solve all the problems of the United States? Yeah, right…

    Sadly, Lisa may be right about this one. But we can hope that America (or the part that thinks of themselves as “right”) will wake up and understand that the real Boston Tea Party involved men with real courage putting their lives on the line for what they believed in, whereas the so called Tea Party is just posers caught up in an AstroTurf movement and dancing to a tune that they don’t understand.

    @MortyForTyrant

    But as long as the hardcore, no-compromise, partisan hack is a democrat (like Reid, Pelosi, Boxer, Wasserman-Schultz, etc) you are ok with that and that is good for the country?

    By definition, astro turf has no growth. You may want to rethink that concept with regard to the tea party.

    The movement (Taxed Enough Already) was born when those that support this country – the middle class – realized that no one in DC understood fiscal responsibility. They are working to elect representatives that will pass a budget, work to reduce the debt and live within the countries means. All other issues take a back seat.

    Bruce: I would absolutely agree that a good many original “TEA party” folks WERE as you mention, middle-class, and only after tax “equality” balanced budgets and yes, reduced waste in spending. They did NOT oppose the taxes truly necessary to keep government functioning. It was fiscal responsibility, NOT fiscal idiocy that ignored al principles of mathematics.


    Sadly, the “movement” was rapidly taken over by the ANTI-tax (the rich) who took over, with NO REGARD for the actual middle class that was supposed to be represented!!

    @dtroutma

    you must not be looking at the results of the elections. It was just a start. It takes time to elect someone and overcome the “good” reputation of an incumbent that has been in congress for 20 or 30 years. The TEA party is alive and well and it is not focused on NOT taxing the rich but in getting the spending under control so we can see just how much money is really needed. The taxing part has got to wait until you stop the bleeding.

    gop indy voters are idiots. they voted out a guy who worked tirelessly to stop the spread of old soviet nukes. but, then again it is indiana, where the klan is active, and kicked out ryan white, and peyton manning. it even has 2 time zones, and some places 3 time zones, because of their disbelief in daylight savings time.
