#1 >Despite presiding over a chamber that nearly drove the country to a debt default,

Wow start off with a complete falsehood.

#2 Expect nothing less from an element of the Permanent Party Propaganda Machine.

#3 WaPo is doing us a favor. Just in case anyone was inclined to Boehner the benefit of the doubt, WaPo has endorsed him, which makes it obvious which side he is really on.

#4 Our debt is out of control, The tea Party wants it fixed. Health care-Obama Care- will be the second largest wealth redistribution plan ever, the Tea Party wants to stop that. The President and the Dems are openly attacking out constitution, the Tea Party wants to protect it. Congressional leaders that have no spine and cry on TV are good, The Tea Party want congress to do their job and protect America's treasures. The status quo is being challenged, all the guns are focused on the Tea Party. No one wants their pork taken away so the budget will be balanced. Bad Tea Party.

#5 Oh, and the largest wealth redistribution is on going and draining the American treasures as we speak. The Fed has given every cent America has away and now they are giving every cent we will ever have away. By raising the debt we have new overlords above us, mostly China. But the real redistribution is what they are doing with the debt.
They are giving the money to the banks at near zero interest. The hope was the banks would pass it on and open home loans up etc... But Obama knew better. The banks are investing the money and using it elsewhere. They are not reinvesting it into the United States. The Stock Market is all the further you need to go to see this. The debt went up and so did the stock market. This is flat backward. The Banks have looted America. The last two weeks of Tea Party fighting was America's last stand against this, like the Alamo they were crushed. I can only hope with the mandates now in place it will be remembered like the Alamo, and people will hold their elected official accountable and vote them out. If they don't, we should empower them all for life, voting will be just a popularity event.

#6 The one thing republicans and democrats can agree upon: tea party must be stopped.

#7  If they don't, we should empower them all for life, voting will be just a popularity event.

We will end up like the Muslim country that accidently reported the election results before the people voted.

I don't think the Tea Party is dead. This entire budget fiasco and Obamascare will probably make them stronger if anything. As much flak as they draw, they must be hitting touchy places with both parties.

#8 JQC, your right, I was just venting.

#9 The fact that the Tea Party is the Designated Boogeyman in pretty much every political column lately suggests they are scaring a lot of people (who could use a good scaring). You only take flak when you are over the target.
