tea party Fails America

By: SayNoToTea , 11:11 PM GMT on February 02, 2012

Thank you Florida and Ron Paul for making it quite clear the party is over and now we are left with memories, not fond ones either and a huge mess to clean up. Ron Paul's critism over Cap & Trade started the tea party movement and now Ron himself is dissing the movement, basically stating that it is rag tag and without a clear vision. All I can say is, "Ron, it took you long enough." Anyone remember how strong the Floridian faction of the tea party stated they were. Yep, the people that gave their state Rick Scott, the governor with the countries lowest state approval ratings, saw their influence dwindle so far as to let Romney collect a landslide victory by garnering almost half of the Republican votes.

So it's almost commical as I watch my left leaning friends chuckle over the mess, as they watch the Democratic Party mobilizing, raising more and more volunteers and also a growing influx of political contributions and then when I turn my attention to the far right nut jobs they are almost giddy with their deluded vision that the election is already over and Obama has been defeated.

it' all boild down to this, moderate Republicans and Independents are left with a mess and it appears it may be a mess that we are already too late to clean up. As i have stated before I am not a Romney fan, but come on people if he is going to be the Republican Presidential candidate at least give him a chance to win. Sadly as the article below points out this is proving not to be the case as Romeny has a higher negative rating than Obama.

Romney Craters with IndependentsA new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows Mitt Romney's popularity has dropped dramatically with an unfavorable rating at 49% and favorable rating at 31%.

It's even worse among independents: 51% don't view him favorably while just 23% do.

Jonathan Chait: "The Obama campaign would almost certainly still prefer to run against Gingrich. But the electability gap between the two leading contenders is dwindling. No wonder more and more conservatives are frantically casting about for a new candidate to jump in and save the day."

Link Koch Brothers, Allies Pledge $100 Million At Private Meeting To Beat Obama.WASHINGTON -- At a private three-day retreat in California last weekend, conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch and about 250 to 300 other individuals pledged approximately $100 million to defeat President Obama in the 2012 elections.

A source who was in the room when the pledges were made told The Huffington Post that, specifically, Charles Koch pledged $40 million and David pledged $20 million.

Quoting nash28:
So is Obama. He's as disconnected as they come. It isn't mutually exclusive to one party gang. No matter how much you guys try to spin it, deflect and defend "your guys." Both parties are beholden to big corporations, banks and lobbyists.

Again.... All the crap you guys spew about one party-yours does it too. And you know it. Which is why I stil for the life of me, can't figure out how someone can, with a straight face, stand behind either party anymore. How is that possible??

And I don't wanna hear the "your guys do it more than our guys" excuse either. That is a bankrupt, lame reason to stand behind a party. Neither party represents America any longer. You guys should just flip em off and stay home in November. Send a REAL message!

I agree except for, ".... stay home in November." Show up and vote for "None of the above".

The "Moral Moron's" strike again...

Virginia Anti-Gay Adoption Rule Passed By State Lawmakers

RICHMOND, Va. -- Virginia legislators have passed a bill allowing private adoption agencies to deny placements that conflict with their religious or moral beliefs, including opposition to homosexuality.

The state House voted 71-28 to pass the legislation Friday. Earlier in the day, a Senate committee endorsed its version of the Republican-backed measure on an 8-7 party-line vote. Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell is expected to sign the bill.

Supporters say the measure protects religious freedom. Opponents argue that the government, which contracts with dozens of private, state-licensed child placement agencies, should not sanction discrimination.

The Virginia Board of Social Services in December adopted regulations allowing discrimination by private agencies based on factors including gender, age, religion disability, sexual orientation and family status. The bill would convert those regulations into state law.

Link The GOP rush to the right.My longer-suffering readers will know that one of my great obsessions is with the phrase “both sides are guilty.” You know how it works. The Republicans in Washington do something extreme, like hold up an appointee to the Fed because he doesn’t have the right qualifications, even though he won a Nobel Prize in Economics. Then, when the howls start, they produce evidence that the Democrats once did something vaguely similar, which indeed they probably did, but upon close examination it wasn’t really remotely comparable. Then the media say: “Ah, you see, both sides do it.” This both-sides-ism is one of the great curses hanging over Washington, and it’s a fantastic racket for conservatives: aware as they are that the mainstream media worship the idea of “balance” (the worship itself the result of the admittedly effective lobbying by right-wing pressure groups since the late 1970s), they know that if they can just publicize one little example that appears to suggest parity in the bad-faith department, they can get away with whatever.
Well, this week comes new and updated empirical evidence by the leading scholars in the field of political science that both sides don’t do it. Or, to be more accurate: yes, both sides do it, but saying that both sides do it equally is the equivalent of saying that a murderer and a purse snatcher have equally violated the law.

I heard this morning that Gingrich wants Florida to split the count proportional to the votes received. He knew the rules going in. Why did he not bring this up before now? Was it because he thought he would win it all and with a lower percentage of the votes than what Romney received?

I thought that Bush was one of the worst president we have had to suffer through. I see Obama continue or expand on all of the Bush policy. I am not an Obama supporter either, because of this. But, give me a break! Is this the best that the Republicans have to offer to counter Obama? This is IT???? I am an Independent and I can assure that will not cast vote for "anyone,but Obama!". I take my vote more seriously than that to take such a thoughtless approach to voting.

I voted for Ron Paul in the last election. I like how he thinks but, I disagree with some of what he supports. I knew he had to get everything he wanted through Congress and that is not an easy thing to do. Now, he has said that he wants to withdraw all of our troops. Even from the Asian basin? I am all for bringing our troops home but, anything that we abandon, in the Asian basin, China will quickly take over. Ron Paul does not need Congressional approval to withdraw our troops from the Asian basin. ... What is a voter suppose to do this round? Punt?

Hi Tea, give Romney a chance. He may do very well debating Obama, when he doesn't have to have Gingrich to worry about or antagonize him.
