Yeah, like anyone here believes that you ever went to a TEA party rally and talked to anyone.
Once again bob, I call BS on your story (just like your Prius fairy tale).

Boy, a picture really is worth a thousand words. Tea baggers are nuts.

So if in your opinion wanting less taxes and more government accountability (by less spending) is nuts, then you must be a genius since you want more of your paycheck taken away from you.

Viking, it's like talking to a wall. You have to understand that they're sold on the socialistic democrat progressive agenda. They are willing to pay as much as possible out of their pocket to make that program win. Well our pockets too but that's a win to them.

We will have a top two general election. It will likely be between Strickland and anybody but Strickland, which will likely be either Parks or Brownley.

Do the arithmetic; the Dems and independents outnumber the Pubs. If the Dems turn out and vote for Brownley, and the independents split their votes, Strickland loses.

If Dems and independents vote for Parks, Strickland loses.

How does Strickland win if the anti-Strickland voters out-number the Pubs and vote? Last time I checked, one plus one-half does not equal two.

It amazes me how people can live in a Dem dominated state that is circling the toilet bowl and continue to vote Dem. Keep voting the same way and hope for a different outcome. It sure doesn't seem to make much sense.

The election of ALL Tea Party candidates back in 2010 who are now in congress was due to the idiocy of so-called "swing voters," people who vote with their hearts and not with their minds. It was clearly a display of frustrated people looking to fix a problem that arose through long-term, systemic problems using a short-term fix. It was a blatant example of people falling prey to the notion that they were exercising true power as a voter buy removing people in office for people saying the opposite but in actuallity, all we got was more gridlock and stalemates by a bunch of people given political positions who have no idea how politics work.

Obama won because dems couldn't get their man back in 2004 but by 2007 Bush had destroyed this country enough to finally allow most intelligent people to see the proverbial light and vote in a real candidate. The Tea Party is simply a manifestation for angry little pouting conservatives to stomp their feet and demand to be given their country back. It's the most ridiculous political party I've ever seen.

Obama may not have dramatically improved this economy in his first term, but he halted this country from heading into complete socioeconomic annhiliation simply due to the fact a republican didn't win office in the POTUS election of 2008. Has he added to our debt? Yes. By 50%. That's half. Bush doubled our debt. And by the current outlook, that may not occur during Obama's second term as it looks like things are improving.

TEA Party can continue their movement it is not going to work here in California. Let's be real...

As far as Obama's incompetency, the right has been too worried pointing out his flaws instead of finding solutions. This is going to be an easy victory for him in November. The Romney campaign reminds me of the Kerry campaign of 2004. Obama worries more about his upcoming seasons NFL fantasy team than Romney's challenge.

unhypenated americans: people who consider themselves first and foremost AMERICANS and anything else is secondary. while it's not a bad thing to remember and honor descent and heritage it should never overshadow what used to be the honor and privelege of being an american, before the left started to destroy the country.

very insightful comment. I always see a good stoning at a tea party rally. Lets call them NAZI's too!

Tomcat is wrong it was CNNs Anderson Cooper who knowingly coined the term teabagger in refernce to the sexual inuendo.

Whatever. This teapartier has some mondo teabags, is proud of them, and isnt afraid to use them.

Star I thought you were cleaning these boards up. This is ridiculous.

"Editor's Note: The attendance figure has been updated. An organizer said the turnout was at least 230 people, based on the lunches served."

Or 115 paranoid people that had a second helping.

SS93035 writes:

The reason most Americans do not associate with the TEA party is because you have the wrong message. Taxed enough already? Are you serious? You have just about the lowest tax rates in history, and Obama has only extended those Bush tax cuts. So who is that message for?

Furthermore, taxes have nothing to do with the economy going south. Any person that actually reads more than just FOX news knows that deregulation by both Democrats and Republicans caused a housing bubble. Two wars costing trillions, and Ventur Capitalists outsourcing your jobs overseas.

Finally, any rational person can just look at your enormous crowd of 200 people and 99 percent of them are white. The party is not reflective of any city in the United States.

So are you saying it is bad that more people are covered by insurance? Is it more inconvenient for your waiting time now that more people are insured? I am not to quick on the uptake so please explain what you mean.

They updated the attendance based on lunches served. You have to be kidding. I've seen the pictures. A couple dozen of these teabaggers could polish off 200+ lunches.

CP writes:

In reading these comments, it becomes clear the lack of fundamental understanding of the history of political systems and government by many people. Americans have deliberately been feed misconceptions about the process and it is truly sad because it causes all this unnecessary division among the people. The few benefit at the expense of the many which is the ultimate aim of all tyrannical and oppressive government systems. If Americans take the time to educate themselves instead of relying on the pitiful offerings served up as education in the public schools and mainstream news corporations, they may be surprised to learn that there is no right or left. It is an illusion. There is only the status quo or establishment which gives us the false choice between two parties, republican and democrat. They just take turns playing good cop and bad cop while things remain the same. The real political spectrum consists of Anarchy (no government) on one side and Totalitarianism (total government control) on the other. Freedom lies somewhere in between these two extremes. That is a more accurate description of what we are dealing with today. A very small number of people want to live with anarchy but there are those who advocate it as a means to end. The discussion today is between those who want to live in a socialist country which is closer to the Totalitarian side than the middle ground of a Constitutional Republic on which this country was founded. The Tea Party movement is about restoring the Freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution which has all but been destroyed. If you do not understand the Constitution or your rights protected in it, you will lose those rights and that is what is happening. The Tea Party is a reaction against and pushing back against the government taking too much power away from the people, period. The people in the movement do not agree on how that should happen or the degree to which it should happen but they agree in principle that something needs to change in a government that has stepped outside of the bounds and limitations set by the Constitution.

When the Tea Party first started I went to an event but they said my IQ was way too high to join their movement. I also don't like the taste of koolaide.

CP, I was at the event---I believe it was an accurate report and the article was very positive on what the Tea Partiers are doing and accomplishing. Not sure how much more you are looking for. A lot of people think the Tea Partiers are crazy and the story made everyone look normal.

Not only am I for real, but I'd have exported jobs to China a lot sooner than most of the corporations did, if I were forced to give all the free handouts and free medical and in many cases, gross over-payment of wages to greedy American workers under the Mafia-like control of labor unions here. And let it be known that I'm from a Colonial American family; Rhode Island circa 1651 to be exact, and I'm actually saying these things. That's a statement in itself as to how foolish I think the American labor situation is. If I stick my neck out to build a successful corporation, I'm NOT going to sacrifice it to the fake green laws against manufacturing, nor to the lawsuit-happy labor here. I'm not a fool. The people out there whining about "greedy corporations and banks" have no clue what it's like to build success, and they never will with this attitude.

So your version of success is undermining the middle class in the US (who buys your goods)in order for you to squeek out a profit? What happens when that middle class can no longer buy your products because all of them are out of work? And you passed economics?

Furthermore, what you are saying is that you will build a product in a country who has no concern for the environment or its labor force in order for you to become succesful? I have been to those countries without regulation and there is a reason my fine sir why you live in the clean air of California, and not the smog congested cities of South East asian communities. You sir, have been sold a poor idea of what it means to be succesful and it is indeed why you are a Republican.

What do you expect from a (name calling removed) newspaper like the Star.

Hard to believe this is a reality. A evil element in this world full of corruption and Elites(Pac groups) holding the strings. Squeezw the middle class tight. Leave the classafied poor where they are at. They have a safety net. Cutt more programs if need to. Raise the cost of healthcare and education for those who can afford. etc. The signs are there people.

We have Extremist Militia Groups arming themselves to the teeth and secertly training in there communities. Hoping and waiting for a civil war to happen. To take it back and live comfortably with there slaves. Do your own research on the truths. Dont let the Gov.run media that is owned by the elites program your mind. Its a very scary world we live in. The only way we can beat this evil,corruption and greed is to unite and inform. WAKE UP AMERICA.

it reminds me of when the star writes a story about gay people and all the Ku’restins come out of the “(name calling removed) woodwork” calling them all kinds of vile names, and when the star does a story about the occupy people, the Ku’restins come out of the “(name calling removed) woodwork”.

Don’t you get it; both sides have the same types of people.

BTW my use of teabagger was not deleted and it wasn’t a slur of any kind. Kinda blows your theory out of the water.
