You Know That Little Tea Party Thingie?

Share

Would you like to know why The Pink Flamingo detests and has no respect for anything tea party?  They don’t care about governing.  All they care about is destroying anyone who gets in the way of their agenda. That is not leadership, it is blackmail.

The freaking tea party express leaders want to primary someone “conservative” against John Boehner!  Judson Phillips does nothing but disparage John Boehner.

Rand Paul is thinking about running for POTUS.  He wants the Tea Party to tell the GOP who THEY want running for POTUS.

Well….

Suppose they gave a tea party and NO one came?

It’s time for another great big Pink Flamingo I Told You So!

Might I be juvanile for a moment – na na na na na (and a great big razberry!)

Please allow me one moment of gloating, then I’ll start crying.

I told you so!

Political Wire

Like the sanity clause in A Night at the Opera, there ain’t no real tea party – at least not for the GOP.  It’s fake, a lie, smoke and mirrors, a FOX – Glenn Beck fantasy, a bunch of brain-dead Ron Paul Bots, and John Birchers.

Only 19% of Americans now support the rancid tea parties.

“...A new Pew poll released today contains some ominous omens for the Republican Party. As national support for the Tea Party declines, support of Republicans by Tea Partiers is also in decline. Only 19% of Americans support the Tea Party now, and within the Tea Party support for the GOP budget plan has dropped from 74% to 52%….”

The Pink Flamingo has been telling you that the Tea Parties are NOT Republican.

Republican Gnom.es

The Pink Flamingo still wants the following poll questions:

  1. Are you currently or have you ever been a member of a tea party organization?
  2. Do you consider yourself a tea party member or simply agree with a budget cutting agenda?
  3. Have you ever attended a tea party meeting?
  4. Do you simply think the budget should be cut?

If these questions were asked, I think we would find far fewer than 19% “support” the tea party.  There is a heck of a lot of difference between are a member of, and support.  I support a budget cutting agenda.  I have never supported the tea party.

Now, let’s be honest here.  The reason people aren’t supporting the budget is because the tea party twits elected to Congress are being so abjectly S – T – U – P – I – D.

Stupid is as stupid does.

The average person doesn’t give a durn about NPR or Planned Parenthood.  We want real and logical cuts.  Problem is the new idiots elected to the House are so lacking in ability to govern that they can only pontificate, scratch themselves, and preen for soundbites on FOX, you are going to blow it.

“...A new survey by Democracy Corps in 50 of the most competitive battleground Congressional districts – nearly all of which gave a majority to Obama in the last presidential election – shows the new Republican majority very much in play in 2012. *

The Republican incumbents in these districts, 35 of them freshmen, remain largely unknown and appear very vulnerable in 2012 (depending on redistricting).  In fact, these incumbents are in a weaker position than Democratic incumbents were even in late 2009, or Republican incumbents were in 2007 in comparable surveys conducted by Democracy Corps.

These incumbents, identified by name, have an average approval rating of 35 percent across the 50 districts, with 25 percent disapproving.  Another 38 percent were not able to give the candidates a rating, suggesting lack of visibility.  This is about 10 points lower than the approval rating Democratic incumbents held in July of 2009 (with comparable disapproval rating)….”

There are fascinating tea party numbers:

Let’s deal with Rand Paul.  What person in their right mind would vote for him?  He’s a the GOP version of Barack Obama, incapable of doing anything but raising money and running his mouth.

“…”The only decision I’ve made is I won’t run against my dad,” Rand Paul said. He has upcoming trips planned to Iowa and New Hampshire, in part, he said, because “I want the tea party to have an influence over who the nominee is in 2012.”…”

TPM

Perhaps Rand Paul had better think twice.

  1. Four more years of Obama and we’re toast. Rand Paul and some of these tea partiers are not electable. I don’t expect any of these people to be POTUS unless – people become so desperate to get rid of Obama that they will vote for anything. That is almost the situation in my area. There is a ban on off shore drilling, people are out of work and desperate. The last straw was money appropriated to Brazil for off shore drilling. People so angry with Obama I believe some of them would vote a person like Curly into office. Either way it will be a disaster. Many people will be reduced to poverty and we’ll be on our way to becoming another banana republic.

  2. I don’t think it will do much good to elect a Republican president while losing the House and remaining a minority in the Senate. If push came to shove, I’d opt for holding the House and Senate.

    I think Wisconsin is a harbinger of miscalculations and presumptions made by the Right in the wake of the 2010 mid-terms. Read this article very carefully:
    http://dailycaller.com/2011/03/25/battle-over-union-power-has-just-begun/

    It seems we’re dealing with such an ignorant, helpless, weak minded majority of citizens that we have to proceed almost as if we’re dealing with abused children… very carefully, with very simple concepts, very modest steps forward, and reassuring them every step of the way that things will be okay in the end. I know, Pubbies (especially me) are not good at this kind of coddling and baby talk. But we have to do better in the P.R. War, and realize that the Lib brainwashers have had 5 or 6 decades to reduce people to whining puppies. We can’t retrain people overnight, especially with loud commands and threats. We have to teach, gently cajole, entice, inspire, and lead — all at the same time! Instead of using the magnificent words and true deeds of our Founding Fathers (with all their flaws) to inspire, the Tea Party posers use our Founders to threaten, shame and frighten people.

    What I’m really worried about: losing all the ground we’ve gained in 2012 *and* giving Obama another four years in the White House.
