    I honestly don't understand why the media is giving too much coverage and attention to these group of people with divisive political ideologies. These people have one thing in common. They hate Obama. They need to suck it up and accepted that Americans made their decision made loud and clear when they elected him president.

    The Tea baggers are a group of totally ignorant Americans who are being used like fools by the Republican Party. They have no idea what they want, stand for, or believe. They are full of extremists, racists, and plain crazies.

    I am so sick of them throwing out the words "Constitution" and "freedom". None of them have read the Consitution nor can they name ONE thing President Obama has supposedly done against it. Most of them don't even know our President is a Consitutional lawyer and professor. He is more protective of our Constitution than anyone. They should have been very afraid of Bush and Cheney's abuse of the Constitution on a regular basis. I don't have enough room to list all the direct assaults they committed against our Constitution.

    These tea baggers claim they want no socialism yet they all collect their Social Security checks. use Medicare, sent their kids to public schools, depend on our police and fire departments. Their mouths fall open when they learn these are "socialist" programs ans start backtracking. Total idiots who fell for fear of "socialism" when they didn't even know what the word meant.

    One tea bagger at their absurd "convention" said he wanted smaller government and for the government to stop trying to regulate everything. When the reporter asked him what regulations he was concerned about – the man looked stunned and could not answer the question. He finally blurted out "regulations like making us wear seat belts"! How stupid can you be?

    Have you also noticed that tea baggers are completely all white, 50 or older, and have only a high school education at best. They DO NOT represent mainstream America or American ideals or values. They are an embarrassment to themselves and to the Republican Party who supports this FOR PROFIT group.

    How sad these poor people don't realize they are demonizing the very person who is working to solve everything they are complaining about!! Republicans laugh at these "beneath them" people while President Obama is working to provide these people with jobs, bank accountability, and healthcare (which most do not have). They have been so brainwashed with hate, fear, and racism they can't see reality anymore.

    And you wonder why the civilized world thinks Americans are so frigging stupid.

    Where was all this outrage when GWB was POTUS?! Seriously, the guy locked down all your "freedoms" that you seem to love so much. He almost bankrupted y our country with an "illegal" war and let the banks run wild – but NOW that your POTUS is only half-white – all of a sudden your wake up out of your slumber and start name calling and issuing threats.

    What a bunch of maroons! And look at your leaders – Bachman and Palin. If brains were dynamite – these women couldn't blow their noses.

    This movement should be called – "Angry, ignorant, white bigots".

    The whole world is watching these bigots make a fool of themselves.

    The Tea Party movement will grow to be the most powerful political force in America and will be more popular than either Democrats or Republicans. Come to think of it some polls already show it is more popular. It's core values are conservative so progressives will and do dispise the movement. It will support candidates who stand for the movements values, which in the near future will not likely include many Democrats. But as the Blue Dogs move away from the Democrats liberal/progressive leadership, I suspect many will align with the movement also. It will support a political party only as long as the party supports it's core values. It will not be blindly loyal to a party for the parties sake. This is in effect how the people take back the government and make it once again a government of the people and for the people.

    I think the tea party movement is a sub-group under the GOP. Why start a movement direct at a president who had not created the debt? The country was in debt before he stepped into office. I think this movement is driven by racism. I never see any people of color at their rallies just white folk. My question is:

    Why didn't they rally when Bush and Cheney were running up the debt? I'm assuming it would have been "Un-American" to speak out against these two white guys.

    I love the idea that people are working together. I just hope it is for American people, not any political party. I don't trust any branch of our government.
