A recent case in point was Obama's bizarre and meandering 17-minute, 2,500-word answer to the simple question about how he could justify raising taxes for ObamaCare during a recession when citizens are already overtaxed. Obama's wildly inappropriate answer left the audience stunned and led commentator Charles Krauthammer to mockingly say, "I don't know why you are so surprised. Its only nine times the length of the Gettysburg address, and after all Lincoln was answering an easier question, the higher purpose of the union and the soldiers who fell in battle."

An opposing view here:
"Bachmann says 'we've gone from 100% of the private economy being private' to now the United States 'owns or effectively owns' 51% of the private economy," scoffed Jason Linkins, writing Huffington Post's Sunday talk show roundup. "This is what's called, 'complete bullshit.'"

The Tea Party movement may endure, but its endurance will be a testament to its ability to understand that cutting government means having a long-term focus. John Samples, author of The Struggle to Limit Government and Director of the Cato Institute's Center for Representative Government, offers an assessment of what Tea Partiers should do if they want to sustain an effort to cut government.

Earth's Ever-Changing Climate!
Joseph S. D'Aleo, Director of Meteorology for the Weather Channel and E.D. of ICECAP describes how nothing could be more normal than the Earth's ever changing climate! He says: "Global climate models are failing miserably in their projections! CO2 is not a pollutant but instead a very beneficial gas and is not destroying the planet as natural cycles are in control."
On Friday Obama called the bill misguided and instructed the Justice Department to find ways to force Arizona to back down. He also said the federal government must enact immigration reform at the national level — or leave the door open to irresponsibility by others, according to the Washington Post. That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona, which threaten to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe, Obama said.

The new found popularity of the party, which has traditionally lagged in third place behind the ruling Labour party and opposition Conservatives, has prompted a barrage of hostile stories about Nick Clegg, its leader, in the right-wing press.
Right wing press......what's that? We need to send our future budding left wing journalists to the UK to find out and absorb the reasons why!

"Defeat the Bastards" Code Red 2.0, March on Washington Tea Party!

On March 27, 2010 writer Frank Rich was quoted in the New York Times Op-Ed section The Tea Party movement is virtually all white. Is this true? He then closed his article with Are these politicians so frightened of offending anyone in the Tea Party-Glenn Beck base that they would rather fall silent than call out its extremist elements and their enablers? Many media outlets, including MSNBC, the Washington Post, CNN, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the Huffington Post among others are insinuating that there is racism in the Tea Party movement. Take a look for yourself.
In the Media Research Centers special report, TVs Tea Party Travesty, MRC Research Director Rich Noyes focused in on the slanted coverage of the tea parties by ABC, CBS, and NBC over the past year.

A dying laissez-faire must be completely destroyed and all of us, including the owners must be subjected to a large degree of social control.An equitable distribution of income will be sought. [And] the major function of the school is the social orientation of the individual. It must seek to give him understanding of the transition to a new social order.

Assistant House Democratic Leader Kyrsten Sinema says the Republicans' birther bill is ridiculous! "Nobody at the Secretary of State office has a copy of my birth certificate". She talks so fast that you might have to play this clip at half speed.
No one has seen this episode in the decades since; the kinescope has been locked away, until now. My friend Wayne Federman, a writer for NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, unearthed the broadcast, condensing it from its original 23 minutes (without commercials) into the six-minute version you see below. (Federman is planning a retrospective of Reagan's television career for next year's Reagan centennial.)

Politico's Ben Smith: Police chased reporters away from the White House and closed Lafayette Park today in response to a gay rights protest in which several service members in full uniform handcuffed themselves to the White House gate to protest "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
"People who have covered the White House for years tell me that's an extremely unusual thing to do in an area that regularly features protests."
The tactic provided the latest evidence of how Obama and the Democratic National Committee are using the Securities and Exchange Commission's bombshell fraud suit against the financial giant to push financial-reform legislation through Congress.

"There aren't a lot of African-American men at these events", NBC News reporter Kelly O'Donnell, a white woman, told Darryl Postell, a black man at a Tea Party rally held Thursday in Washington, DC, pressing him, in an exchange she chose to include in her NBC Nightly News story, to address her prejudiced assumptions: Have you ever felt uncomfortable? Postell rejected her loaded premise that race must divide Americans: "No, no, these are my people, Americans."
Recent polling from Rasmussen about the average TEA party attendee population reveals that:
-Eighty percent (80%) in the Tea Party movement are white. Six percent (6%) are African-American.
-Fifty-five percent (55%) of those in the Tea Party movement are Republicans, 14% Democrats
Seventy-eight percent (78%) are politically conservative. Other research has shown that more than 40% of conservatives nationwide do not consider themselves Republicans.
-Ninety-four percent (94%) believe the federal government has become a special interest group that looks out primarily for its own interests. That view is held by 67% of all voters nationwide.
