Americans Dislike The Tea Party: The Numbers Don’t Lie
Regardless of Fox News’ Propaganda The Tea Party is very disliked.
The numbers are striking, but not surprising.You can spin and fool the people some of the time, but not all of the time. I guess the American people screaming for compromise to solve our problems should’ve been listened to. Cutting taxes for corporations and the wealthy just doesn’t fly with the average ‘Joe the Plumber.’ You can show them the numbers but the GOP and their hostage-taking Tea party just keep barreling down the road to insanity. After tying up John Boehner’s hands, the whole GOP has a choice to make.
After riding into Washington fresh off their November 2010 shellacking of the democrats,things have only gotten worse. They all ran on the evils of Obamacare, cutting spending and downsizing government. But a funny thing happened along the way- they didn’t tell us how they would do it. By now, we realize it was by protecting corporations and balancing their budgets on the backs of poor working middle-class elections. The same people that elected them to office. The GOP phrase was ‘Lock and Load’ during the November 2010 elections. That morphed into ‘Block and Blame.’ Block any legislation that moves the country forward hence blame Obama then we retake the White House. The S&P blamed the Tea party directly for downgrading the US credit rating. Yet, even when S&P stated that in bold black letters, the spinsters still went out into Fox Land to blame the president. Jobs, jobs, jobs was just a talking point to get them all elected, seeing that the Tea fanatics have vowed to block any jobs bill this remaining year. Steven Spielberg couldn’t make some of this stuff up. It will make a great movie someday.
The only shining light that came from the debt ceiling debate would have to be the light now shining on the Tea Party. The spotlight that they so heavily courted is now theirs, and that’s always a good thing.
