The Demise of both the GOP and Tea Party Begins

(UPDATE – Democrat Hochul pulls off upset in New York congressional race.)

The following headline of hope and great joy was released by the Associated Press this past weekend, to the delight of most true Americans…

"Democrat Surges in Poll Ahead of N.Y. Special Election."

The story was as follows:
"A congressional race that may test voter support for a controversial Republican plan to overhaul Medicare remains tight before Tuesday’s special election, with a new poll suggesting that the Democrat now has a slight edge.

The special election to fill a House seat in upstate New York was supposed to be an easy victory for Republican Jane Corwin, left. But support for Democrat Kathy Hochul, right, is growing. Democrat Kathy Hochul has been campaigning in the western New York district against the House GOP plan to remake Medicare. She had support from 42% of likely voters in a survey released Saturday, compared to 38% for Republican Jane Corwin.

Republicans have long represented the district, so gains by Democrats are being closely watched well beyond the region.

The poll, conducted by the Siena Research Institute, surveyed more than 600 likely voters and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.

In a Siena poll three weeks ago, the Democrat had trailed the Republican candidate by five percentage points.

Support for a TEA PARTY candidate appears to be fading (much like the entire, corporate led movement). Businessman Jack Davis was picked by 12% in the most recent poll, about half the support from the prior survey.”


And this recent news is now joined by the announcement today that all challenges to the recall of three GOP State Senators in Wisconsin have been exhausted and that now recall elections WILL BE HELD!

Between the GOP choking up a sure thing in upstate New York, and Scooter Walker about to lose his Republican majority in the Wisconsin legislature, the only thing that could possibly make it any worse for the Republicans would be for Tim ‘ZZZZ’ Pawlenty to announce he’s going to seek the GOP Presidential candidacy….OOOOPS! Never Mind!

Thanks to you Koch Brothers. And thanks to your wealthy, corporate brethren. While we have had to suffer the incompetence that is the earmark of your candidates, most of them from the ever pandering GOP, you have shown true Americans how much we stand to lose if we don’t stand up and fight to save our country from your selfish corporate interests that would destroy our democracy in pursuit of the all mighty dollar. That you have fooled so many Americans through your lies, deceit and fear mongering, into doing your dirty work under the guise of the Tea Party is something we will never forget, AND NEVER FORGIVE!

Is it time to start calling their spiritual leader…

The Tea Party: More Like Al-Qaeda by the Day ...

One does have to wonder what is in the minds of the Tea Party. Really…what are they thinking?

Listen folks, I know about disappointment, and losing when you felt you had a moral imperative to win. Hell, I grew up in Cleveland and I’m a lifelong Browns, Cavaliers and Indians fan. I lived through the Drive, the Fumble, the shot by Jordan and the other shot by Jordan, Jose Mesa’s 9th inning melt down in Game 7 of the 1997 World Series, and the Cavaliers choke versus the Magic just last year.

Yea, I’ve seen my share of heartbreaks and gut wrenching losses.

But at my lowest I never threatened the fans of the winning team with death and destruction. I never spit on them. I never went to their homes and severed gas lines, threw bricks thru their windows, or left messages on their voice mail promising them they would die.

I know, I know…how can I compare the loss of a pro sports team to the Armageddon of the Health Care reform bill, which will bring the Republic down and represents the end of times.

Well, the truth is, none of those things that Republicans, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity or any of the other extremists have claimed will be a result of the healthcare reform passing, will actually come true.

So at the end of the day, what the sadly stupid core of the Tea Party is left with is really something that is similar to their favorite team losing the Super Bowl.

Why do I say that?

Because only 48 hours after the vote to pass the Healthcare Reform, many of those that led the charge that enraged the Tea Party, the leaders in the GOP who raged against death panels, are now subtly shifting their positions and claiming they helped contribute to parts of the bill that they think will help them get re-elected.

So, much like a disappointing end to a championship season, the fans feel betrayed, but the team and the players move on to the next season and the next game.

The problem for the GOP is what they are now left with.

The insurance companies, pharma companies, and other rich fat cats on Wall St., accomplished what they wanted; they ramped up a core of Americans who usually pay more attention to voting for American Idol than they do voting for their elected representatives, and who will soon figure out that what they railed against are the things that will help them most.

And as they were doing it, the CEO’s, the Lobbyists and the politicians pulling the strings were laughing their asses off.

But now, it has vectored out of control.

The insane ranting of Glenn Beck (just watch Jon Stewart of the Daily Show reveal the insanity), the extreme hyperbole of Limbaugh, and the serial lying of Fox News will not stop.

And the Tea Party folks, so enraged and so indoctrinated by the pied pipers from Fox and the GOP, will not stand aside and move on quietly to the next season.

No…they actually believed the lies and disinformation they were fed.

They actually think the nonsense about death panels, socialism and the death of our country will come true.

And consistent with their limited ability to process complex thought, their default is to turn to that which they understand best … 'KICK ASS BABY'!

So now we have bricks thrown through windows of government facilities, death threats on voice mail, gas lines cut at the homes of government officials, and congress members being spit on and called vile names.

In other words, what we have is a de-centralized group of loosely affiliated cells across the country, following the Fox News and Heritage Foundation version of a fatwa, delivered by spiritual leaders wrapped in messianic fantasies, all dedicated to the destruction of American property and democratic institutions, as well as the murder of American citizens.

What do you call that?

Will Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, John Boehner, or any of the other cheerleaders of this madness step up and say enough is enough?

Well, to quote the aforementioned Mr. Boehner … "HELL NO!"

And why should they?

They are still making millions and getting fat and rich on the backs of the ‘proletariat’ who they twist into doing their dirty work while keeping their hands relatively clean and raking in the money.

Wake up Tea Party people. Stop being used and abused.

Your movement is in a death spiral, so you might as well accept it and go back to watching American Idol.

They were only using you for their gain, and it will only hurt you in the long run.

Nope...

The Tea Party and the Democrats are one and the same.

Equality, Fraternity, Liberty...

Oh my friend,

Why have the Secretaries of the Treasury under Clinton, Bush, and Obama all been former CEOs of Goldman, Sachs?

Why is Obama's war policy the same as Bush's?

Can't you see who is running this country?

Who will free our nation?

Confused I don't understand why you are 'the only one' that sez
these two parties are the same when everyone believes otherwise.


Cool If they are, as you always say, "one and the same" then why
would the DNC of produced the below political ad in 2010?

But the money changers prefer the system the way it works now. They wallow in corruption and thrive in it. This is like a religion this climate we find ourselves in. Call it what you like. Yet, we can effect real CHANGE as we purposely move toward the ideas found in the US Constitution.

I see the solution as secession. We need our own nation.

When there are too many Mexicans, for example, they will use the Constitution to wrap tamales.

Leon, you'd probably be happier in prison. Three hots and a cot and all the other failures, control freaks, blacks, angelenos, mexicans, et al. that you can hate, all hating each other, all hollerin' at once, all in one place, just like the inside of your head.

Of course, this adds nothing to the discussion.

It is merely more name-calling and abuse by the Left.

Let us know when you have something substantive to add.
