I figured not.
No doubt there should have been more of this during Bush's second term but what happens to your statement if the Tea Party sticks around for both a Republican or white Democrat?

It disgusts me how the mass media refer to them as conservatives. This is part of the dumbing down of America. By continuously referring to radical neo-liberals as conservatives, the destruction of a hundred years of progressive governance and the dissolution of the middle class as simply a normal, political process, they mask the great sell-out. All is well. Move along. Yes, millions have lost their homes and jobs, but hey, as long as you have your job, keep your head down and your mouth closed. What we must have is stability. It's like China: Social discord must be euthanized at all costs. Don't ask too many questions. Anybody wonder why the economy was crashed and the top 1% reaped the most massive profit in history on top of it? No. Of course not. That story would upset the status quo and perhaps lead to social unrest. Better to adapt to the new reality than question the loss of the old one.

The American people don't even realize that (starting with Reagan) the oligarchs held a revolution. Guess what? They won.

Oh, and you weren't invited.

The United States economy grew faster than first thought last quarter, the Commerce Department said on Thursday, the latest in a series of signals that point to a period of sustainable growth ahead.

Increased investment by businesses and a slightly improved trade picture prompted the revision, which lifted the estimated annual rate of growth in April, May and June to 4.2 percent, up from the government’s initial reading of 4 percent in late July.

Since the economy emerged from the recession five years ago, companies have been hesitant to spend heavily on new capacity, but these figures and other recent data indicate that is finally changing.

“Not only was there an upward revision, but the composition points to solid growth in the second half of this year,” said Stuart G. Hoffman, chief economist at the PNC Financial Services Group in Pittsburgh. “Businesses have bounced back after the bad winter disrupted production and demand.”

In a separate report on Thursday, the Labor Department said initial claims for unemployment benefits dropped last week by 1,000, to 298,000, helping push the eight-week average for new claims to below 300,000 for the first time since April 2006, well before the onset of the recession.

Senator and CIA Insider Accuse Federal Reserve of Covering Up Secret Bankruptcy
By MONEY MORNING STAFF REPORTS

Is the Federal Reserve covering up a dangerous crisis that threatens to bring down, not just the United States, but the entire global economy?

According to two men, one a high-ranking member of the U.S. Intelligence Community, and the other, a 2016 Presidential hopeful, the answer is yes.

They both believe the world's most powerful central bank is secretly bankrupt and Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen will do whatever it takes to keep the public in the dark about this startling situation.

If they're correct, every American should fear the unavoidable endgame their evidence is predicting.

Recently, in an emotional speech from the Senate floor, Senator Rand Paul declared that the Federal Reserve is now "insolvent."

So aside from clearly not understanding anything at all about history, this piece commits the cardinal sin of politicizing data. Of course something will look dramatic when you have your axis from 30-35, but what the data is actually showing is a change of about 15% which is really not that much.

BS! Tea Party didn't do **** when Bush was blowing through money! Why? Because they didn't exist except a few outspoken guys like Rand Paul. That is why they need to stay onboard regardless of who is president. If they keep quiet under a Republican President then to me they are no better then people like you who can never criticize their own party (leaders).

They've always existed. the republican base/tea party both the same. They're not a group of people that magically appeared out of no where to join forces with the republicans. If that were the case Willard would be president.

Not even close. There are established Republicans that have never been what TP stands for. Sure they might be more fiscal than Democrats but they didn't speak up during Bush's terms. They can pretend to be "fiscal conservatives" but I don't think they are backed by these TP groups. What Republican base aka politicians spoke out on much of the spending? I didn't hear too many from Washington DC. If you are talking about the base as in the conservative voters, they never formed a backlash like they did 5 years ago. It should have been formed at least during Bush's 2nd term.
Tea Party people you saw were common folks and many didn't have a clue how the (corrupt) government works and ran for local and state elections. Some might say that big money "backed" the groups but the face of it sure wasn't the Koch Brothers or any big time Republican. These groups are actually doing something about it but not sure in the end if they will be successful. We shall see if they keep their selling points to not only their own candidates/elected officials but also whoever is in office. What they are doing now is fine but what they do in the near future will tell us if they were just Republicans pissed off that a Democrat was in office or are they true to their beliefs. We shall see....

Republican base,plain and simple. The "silent majority" is more like the " loud minority". Tea party was and is about the Koch brothers. The TP rallies were fully funded by them. No Koch bros.,no TP rallies.

If they had anything g to do with the TP, it was when they were taking off. If they started it, that is some great marketing.

Is this the one million or onr million and one that I told you that I didnt back the Iraq war, bush prescription drug law that ended up billions over his projected cost or that I didnt even vote for him in his second term?

So how is your 100% support on Obama doing? After all, you voted for him.
