What do you thing of all the new media about the Tea Party?
I keep hearing all this hub bub about conservatives "not being conservative enough."
I think they started out great, but now they're just a pawn to split the republican vote.
They could have convinced democrats to vote out the incumbents, too, if they weren't so radical in their socialist/liberal-bashing. Oh, well. Que-Sherrod-Sherrod. Whatever will be, will be.
Folks, like any faction, group or party, there are degrees in both directions. There is an equal call from the far left that Liberals are not push hard enough. Just look up interviews of Howard Dean after Scott Brown won Massachusetts. Howard’s logic was defined as “Scott Brown won because liberals want to send a message to Obama that his policies are not liberal enough.” Seriously?
Dig deep enough and you will find absolute nut jobs who want to tear down the system completely and start over…I see these on both sides.
Tea Partiers are fed up with not having a viable second choice, as so many spend and tax Republicans disaffected our party during the Bush years. God bless having multiple voices or we would all hail the Queen.

I've been on the fence about the TEA Party. My husband, who is much more conservative than I am, fully supports the TEA Party and has attended rallies. I, however, have not. I do agree with several of their points, but I've been trying to research the accusations of racism and homophobia. No claims...

Is it fair to refer to the Tea Party as the American Taliban?I think I saw a bumper sticker that said this. Obviously, this would be a very liberal position, but are there any actual similarities? Is this a statement you would support or oppose?

Why is it that Tea Party type hubs won't post comments from anyone that doesn't see things their...way? Everytime I got to a right wing conservative hub and make a valid arguement about a topic, they won't post my comment. It's like a love fest on those sights, surely not everyone on this site is a...

Last week, Matt Continetti published a long essay in The Weekly Standard arguing that we should understand the Tea Party as a movement that’s torn between two competing political instincts — one reformist and one reactionary, one that “wants to repair deformities in the American political...

A long article in this week's "The New Yorker" by Sean Wilentz entitled "Confounding Fathers" traces the antecedents of Glenn Beck's rants and the Tea Party's hysteria to two individuals who spouted much of the nonsense now being repeated Beck and the Teatards. Unfortunately...
