What Lefty Site Does Whinyus Maximus Hope Will Hire Him?

Fabius Maximus could not possibly sound more emasculated in
The Tea Party Movement disproves my recommendation. . .
if his wife’s name was on the masthead of a pre-eminent Lefty site.

Many folks said I was wrong, and so it proved to be. We have the mass citizen involvement I long recommended, and it looks like an expression of the delusions that led us along this dark path.

Those delusions could be summarized as Progressivism, and I assure you that the Tea Parties are not regurgitating those delusions.

Unfortunately the Tea Party Movement is fundamentally ignorant, lost in the dreamtime of blaming others for our problem, grasping to hold their government benefits, and unwilling to pay for them. The polls and their own websites tell a clear story (see below). Additional analysis would be redundant.

What? No, the Tea Parties see those so-called ‘benefits’ as quite the opposite. Exactly which Tea Parties did you attend, you pseudonymous twerp?

This seems to me more than natural fear for America. It’s childlike petulance. Perhaps something good can come from this (anything is possible), but I suspect nothing significant is more likely. Or it might spawn monsters, always a danger from inchoate or amorphous mass movements — esp those driven by fear.

Hm, so, given the creepy affinity for literally any foreign thug he can bow or commiserate with, that there is no legitimate concern that BHO would not pull a Mel Zelaya stunt if he thought success possible? The only petulance on display is your goofy attempt at mis-characterizing a movement that is fully congruent with the spirit that founded this country, Fabius.

‘Nothing significant’? Dude, if not for the Tea Party outcry, Demon Pass would have been used, and it would have been a blueprint for every other steaming loaf of crap the Pelosi/Reid/Obama try-dumb-virate could think of.
Challenge to you, Fabius: attend a Tea Party on the 4th of July and offer a realistic assessment.

    Fabius, meet Peter Jennings — who described the outcome of the 1994 congressional election as a temper tantrum by a nation of three-year-olds.

    sigh… politics is not for the faint of heart. If it’s too mean and aggressive perhaps Fabius should get into something less manly, like Pro Wrasslin.

    i used to enjoy going to fabby’s website and giving him the business over stupid posts like this one. it’s one of the reasons he closed down his comments sections. i believe glenn reynolds and bill quick shined a bright spot light on him and he quickly retreated under a rock. he’s a clueless fool and too smart by half.

    I always thought that blaming others was the trademark of the liberal side of the aisle. But I have to admit that he has a point, in that the seniors will not ever give up their Social Security / Medicare packages. Not that I blame them, but that’s not to say we can’t reform (and by reform I mean abolish) the programs for the younger generations.

    I retired three years ago and am currently receiving the Social Security I paid for lo these many years (at virtual gunpoint!). I would be more than happy if the gummint would write me a check for the balance remaining and we could call it quits. But no, I won’t give up something I paid dearly for. Would you?

    It wasn’t just the seniors who scuttled W’s attempts to reform SS (reform which I supported, BTW); there was bipartisan support in Congress for demagoguing the issue and kicking the can down the road. Given what’s happened to the Medicare Advantage program in the Dem’s Health Care “Reform”, seniors are correct to be suspicious of D.C.

    Me too, Bubba. Not only have I paid for the sumbitch, I was forced to pay into Railroad Retirement (at a higher rate) for over 8 years before the Southern Pacific “outsourced” a few hundred of us before we could get vested.

    You and me have also “contributed” to the Public “Education” of generations that are now whining about doing away with SS – whether or not we had school-age children. And don’t even get me started about welfare for illegals, National Propaganda Radio, food stamps, defaulted student loans, propping up swamps like Detroit muttermutterbitchpissmoan….

    I sure don’t like not being able to work any more, but it’s goddam sure my money.
