DeMint is in demand

Watch Sen. Jim DeMint's Palmetto Freedom Forum on Labor Day from 3 to 5 p.m. ET on CNN or, then watch John King's interview with DeMint on "John King, USA" at 7 p.m. ET.

Columbia, South Carolina (CNN)
- South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint has become a firebrand, capitalizing on a tidal wave of anti-Washington sentiment that makes him the darling of the Republican conservative base and political dynamite to the party establishment.

"I don't have the support inside Washington or even inside my own party," DeMint said last week.

    What has happened to his country? Every channel shows the negative, never the positive. Every politician that gets interviewed is anti-American, never pro-America. The hate and fear are spreading like wildfire while the people watch the government yell HELL NO to anything that helps the REAL PEOPLE of this country.

    I'll take hope, change, and positive ideas ANY DAY over the hate, fear, and negattivity that is being spread. Shame on all you haters. Shame on you. I hope God in Heaven has kept his notes very well - judgment day will be fun to watch.

    iit's pretty sad to think that someone that has the views of Jim DeMint would be so in demand in our country. Of course look who he is demand by....the Tea Party one of the least liked groups in our nation at the present, and of course the far right wing of his party. These are the folks like DeMint that are against gays, minorities, are willing to force a woman to carry a child that was due to her being the victim of a horrible crime and of course kicking the poor to the curb. Then on the other hand they are so pious and believe in God. What a sad joke.

    . . . Jim DeMint's spirit and his Jim Crow principles are the same as his GOP predecessor and cross-state comrade Jesse Helms.
