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.
