Short Attention Span Politics

Ever get the feeling that the Tea Party is missing something?

UPDATE: CBS News reports that “taxes are at their lowest levels in 60 years” following Obama’s tax cuts in the stimulus package. And yet 64% of Tea Party supporters think the administration has raised taxes, even though Obama’s tax cuts went to 98% of Americans (everyone making less than $250,000 a year).

    It’s obvious as hell….they do not have a cogent, logical argument against any of the current policies. Most of the policies probably benefit them.

    They have been manipulated and whipped into a frenzy by the “Rove” Republicans (Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, etc) because a democrat and black person was elected president with a significant democratic majority in the Congress.

    They are simply a mob…a well organized mob that shouldn’t be ignored but an unreasoning, illogical mob none the less.
