We might have to be talked down to buy the Democrats, but we don't have to be talked down to by the Republicans. If our votes are less important than the Hispanic vote then so be it, let them lose.
inquiring mind..,.. While the TFP is issuing apologies, maybe they should issue an apology for every other Bennett cartoon. Drew was pretty nice to Obama really. I would've called i Obama the piss ant he is.
You and the TF P's selective outrage is typical.
Big surprise, Bob Corker is a Chamaeleon. Corker and the rest of the conservatives in name only Republicans are just like the Democrats. They want to use true conservatives for votes, Tell them to shut up, and write a check to the Republican Party.
Those Republicans, like Corker and Alexander, Want Tea party people and true conservatives to get back down on the end of the bench. They would then have carte blanche to do what it takes to retain their power.
They hate Conservatives because they can't control them. They retain power because they are only just a little bit worse than the Democrats. In other words they survive because conservatives are duped into believing that the lesser of two evils is a real choice. There is no such thing as the lesser of two evils, they are both evil. Until conservatives stay home and make sure that Republicans lose this will never change.
Whenever someone like Pam Sohn starts to praise your behavior you better take a long look in the mirror.
A pox on both their houses.
Gerber... Another propaganda piece about Liberals and Obama. The majority of people in Hamilton County despise Obama. In you're sorry newspaper, and in this article, you still didn't even mention the 500 people at target protesting for the Tea party.
You people are pitiful.
Plato...just your name shows what a sociopath you are. Bragging about two little businesses and a measly portfolio give you absolutely NO credibility. If you fall for anything Obama says you are incredibly stupid.
Liberalism is like some kind of a cult. You believe in fantasy, worship a flawed "leader" and follow like a yellow dog. Yeah, you should be real proud.
Drew just got fired over this. Not only did the liberal idiots at the TFP get him, the Republican establishment hated him because he told the truth about Corker, Alexander, etc and liberals like Andy Berke.
This newspaper is basically a propaganda sheet for liberals. It is not worth the paper it is written on. Welcome back to your old name...."The Fish Wrapper." On second thought, I don't think any self-respecting fish would be caught dead wrapped in this thing. It only real use would be as toilet paper. That is the respect it deserves.
Real conservatives should cancel their subscriptions today. After yesterday's Obama love letter issue, everyone knows just how radical these guys are.
By the way, I came out of retirement just for this.
This is my last post on these opinion pages. All of this electronic fussing and fighting is not productive. All these posts have turned into is an insult contest.
Really no one cares what Pam Sohn thinks,
or what Drew Johnson thinks about national issues. They might have a little influence locally but their national opinions mean nothing.... And change nothing.
The same is true of all of us. We are all just bloviating, not changing any minds, and it's all about ego and a delusion of influence. Most of you hide behind made-up names in order to be as nasty as you can without anyone else knowing Who you are. It is wrong to print an opinion without a name.
This country is headed downhill at a fast pace. I'm not gonna waste anymore of my time to convince someone that is a fact.
So, Tim Price, aka timbo Is out of here.
gjuster..... You're right, they had behind Made up names and take pot shots from a distance. These cowards say It is because of us violent conservative types might attack them. That would be more rare than a Bigfoot sighting. The real reason is there ashamed of their tone and of their opinions. They don't want their friends, family, or coworkers to see just how nasty they really are.
I know, maybe they can call the IRS and get them to investigate you and Mark West like their buddy Obama did. I guess that was just paranoia too.
lkeithlu and daO1980....I think you point is valid that a lot of Tea Party members have pushed their religion on the rest of us. A good description of what it is supposed to be is in Wikipedia. "The Tea Party movement is an American political movement that advocates strict adherence to the United States Constitution, reducing U.S. government spending and taxes, and reduction of the U.S. national debt and federal budget deficit." It was not founded to push a social agenda or be involved in those things in any way.
It has been subverted some what from it's populist/libertarian philosophy by traditional Republicans who want to control the Tea Party. No one hates the Tea Party more than traditional Republicans.
Mark West is a good man who has done a good job but sometimes either he, or the people listening to him, confuse his personal beliefs with the Tea Party basic concepts. His religious views are his and I hope, are not the views of most Tea Party members. If it is a division of the Republican party there is no need for the Tea Party.
I am a personal rights fanatic. I think the government and society in general are so powerful that if not for the Bill of Rights, we would not be much better than other countries. I don't care who you marry, what you do with your body, what drugs you take, who you have sex with, or anything else that is NONE OF MY BUSINESS.
That is a libertarian view of life that I think a lot of liberals and conservatives agree on. I also think that there is a huge amount of democrats who agree with the fiscal policies espoused by the Tea Party and don't want to be associated with it because of the social policies that are supported by a large part of the Tea Party, especially the leaders.
I am not associated with the Tea Party for that very reason. I am not the only one, there are millions of people who feel the same as I do that the Tea Party is inadvertently alienating.
People like shen and librul are just socialists and give that line all the time.
