I don't know when the modern tea party began, and I don't care. What they are now is a group farther right then the GOP, I could vote for a moderate republican, but not somebody who hails from the tea party.
BTW, It'd be funny as hell if Obama raised the tax on tea just to **** with the tea party.
Jason is correct, you perceptions are absolutely partisan. Several of your assertions are blatant regurgitations of what our state controlled media has been feeding the sheeple.
So you voted for Obama. Ok. You voted and took a stand on something. I applaud you for that. That's more than some other people who don't vote yet think they have a right to complain. However, comparing Bush to Obeezy is weak. Bush was a RINO, he was one of the most progressive Presidents we've had. His administration increased social welfare spending tremendously, enlarged the government pie enormously, and drove us further into debt. Compared to Bush, though, Obama is like a freight train of destruction, corruption, socialism, and Bush is a Tyco train set.
Palin's image may not be good, but she was running as VP, not P. Even if she had been running for P, she had far more qualifications for the job than Big Barry. McCain may be a leftist, but at least he made decisions and took a stand. Obama makes no decisions, blames everyone else, and presides over one of the most corrupt administrations in history. Remember his classic statement "it's beyond my pay grade".
Unfortunately, the Reps are a disaster, still running as the Grand Old Party. I sincerely hope they get their act together and bring forth a credible candidate. The fact that other Dems intend to run against Obama is such a clear indication of his party's lack of faith in him.
He is no one's ally.
