Skip to comments.Ed Rendell: Tea Party Crowds are Pathetic
Posted on 04/24/2010 9:15:43 AM PDT by jazminerose
Ed Rendell on FNC just said he could hold a rally to increase federal legislation to protect puppies & draw at least 100,000.
He's trying to downplay the size of the turnout at the Tea Party events, calling it "pathetic" & pointing out there is no "leadership" & no "infrastructure." (Eddie's not clear on the concept).
One wonders what all the hysteria on the left has been about if the Tax Day rally only drew a couple of "hundred" people.
He needs to go to rehab for a week or two to dry out.... oops, did I say that out loud?
Do it up, Big Ed. Show us what you got, because we are most definitely going to show you what we got.
I saw that scared sh*tless spin from Fast Eddie also.
In other words, it's grass roots.
It appears that Alinsky Rules don't work very well when attacking large groups...
Then they can tell us that we're small, pathetic, and don't matter.
“He’s trying to downplay the size of the turnout at the Tea Party events, calling it “pathetic”
Are the crowds bigger or smaller than the anti-war hippies during the Bush years?
He's used to rallies where labor unions haul in supporters on buses, and that's the "infrastructure" he's talking about ,too.
Oh, what a relief it will be when he is no longer governor and can become a full time Obamazoid. No leadership, no infrastructure; he really doesn’t get it; poor eddie just can’t figure it out. :-(
If the Tea parties are so insignioficant why are the Democrats so frightened. Why dont they just ignore them?
They are getting frantic, good!!!
I’d also point out that it wasn’t long ago that the Tea Parties were funded by the insurance companies to do their bidding.
registered Demoocrat = traitor.
Ed Rendell is the one who is pathetic.
He’ll be gone soon.
Stick to saving puppies, Ed, something that I agree with you with. Other than that, step off.
Check out the post by Darren McCarty. (3rd from the top)
Organizing for Obama is putting on a push for my district. You’ll notice they speak of Tim Walberg putting on a town hall “close to us” which seems to indicate they plan to come from outside the district.
As opposed to Democrats in government, who are not pathetic, but laughable.
That’s my question. Sounds like the Tea Parties should be easy for the demtards to simply ignore.
He actually did use the anti war rallies for comparison—to hear him tell it, millions of patriotic citizens showed up to those as compared to a couple of hundred armed guerillas show up for Tea Parties.
They’re only funny when they don’t have any power.
“pointing out there is no “leadership” & no “infrastructure”
That’s what they call “grassroots”, Ed.
A pathetic “pathetic” -— lol. The DNC talking-point labels of “racists” and “terrorists” are backfiring......
From Mark Steyn:
....in terms of the electoral map this November, youve only got to scare a relatively small percentage of squishy, suburban moderate centrists back into the Democratic fold, and how difficult can that be?
Hence, Bill Clinton energetically on the stump, summoning all his elder statesmans dignity (please, no giggling) in the cause of comparing tea partiers to Timothy McVeigh. Oh, cmon, theyve got everything in common. They both want to reduce the size of government, the late Mr. McVeigh through the use of fertilizer bombs, the tea partiers through control of federal spending, but these are mere nuanced differences of means, not ends.
For a long time, tea partiers were racists. Everybody knows that when you say Im becoming very concerned about unsustainable levels of federal spending, thats old Jim Crow code for Lets get up a lynching party and teach that uppity Negro a lesson.
The worst thing that could happen to the Tea Party movement is to develop a leadership structure where everyone in the movement is taking marching orders from one central person.
That’s Fast Eddie for you.
Democrats are whistling past the graveyard of history.
Yes please ignore us but we will remember you in November.
Tell the Gov to go back to sleep. Nothing to see here. He will be in as much shock and in need of shock therapy as the rest of the Dems.
AND, where the leadership is subject to be Alinski'd by the state media.
So, the media has given Sarah Palin the title of de facto leader of the Tea Party movement. So when they're attacking Sarah Palin, they're attacking all Americans who are fed up with big government.
This man is the worst example of a politician. He will go down in the history of PA as the Governor of the lobbyists, particulary the unions. What a slimey, double talking slug!
Rendell is attempting to convince himself and his interests that there is no tidal wave about to crush him and the interests of the status quo.
GOOD BYE DIRT BAG!!
Rendell calls the Tea party movement....”pathetic” & points out there is no “leadership” & no “infrastructure”
Kinda like Pennsylvania has been under that fat, corrupt sack of $hit’s reign....
Eddie that is the beauty of the tea party movement, we don’t need any crooked leaders such as yourself to lead us as we are perfectly able to think for ourselves.
Thanks for the link-Steyn is nearly always great-(I’ve been reading him since the mid 90s when I did some work in Canada and he was writing for the National Post)but this might be one of his very best.
Every word is true and I especially love him rubbing the libscum’s cowardly faces in the cold hard facts.
PLEASE FORWARD these links to anyone who has been lied to by the media and politicians about the Tea Party Movement, which of course is everybody.
The True Face of the Tea Partiers
“this might be one of his very best.”
thought so also; I posted this column earlier today as a thread here (just because his wit is so withering):
Not Too ‘Hip’ and ‘Edgy’ for Censorship (or, “Please. Behead me last.”)
The reason the crowds are small Ed, they all have jobs and can’t come flooding to demonstrations like your supporters who have no jobs and live on the largesse of hard working Americans.
In other words..."How can we know who to shake down?"
The final head count came in a few days ago for our little Palm Desert Tea Party— 4500.
Here’s a pic of the dangerous extremists in their lawn chairs (I dunno how to post a pic here):
Not only can we see November from our house, we can see the next several November’s...
Awesome blog post.
It’s a shame that GWB took it upon himself to legitimize the rapist Bill Clinton.
So now the rapist is free to demonize dissenting Ameican voices, as George Bush’s new “adopted brother.”
disgusting and shameful.
With acknowledgement to My Fair Lady:
Just you wait Ed Rendel, just you wait!
You’ll be sorry, but your tears’ll be too late!
Dems will be out of office, with no money.
Will we help you? Don’t be funny.
Just you wait, Ed Rendel, just you wait!...
Then they’ll march all the Socialists to the wall
And the Court will sure tell us: JR, sound the call.’
As we raise our rifles higher,
JR will shout ‘Ready! Aim! Fire!’
Oh-ho-ho, Ed Rendel, Down you’ll go, Ed Rendel.
Just..... you..... wait!
(Just satire about the rifles.....)
“Ed Rendell on FNC just said he could hold a rally to increase federal legislation to protect puppies & draw at least 100,000.”
Have at it, Fast Eddy.
No infrastructure means the unions aren’t paying thousands of thugs to demonstrate.
Nice. I’m so glad that Ed Rendell is calling the Tea Party pathetic.
That means the Tea Party is right on target. If they were truly pathetic, no one would talking about them at all, like for example, someone like, I don’t know, well, the
Now that's pathetic, Ed.
Oh, almost forgot, and your wife too.
TEA Party = We The People.
When the time comes to choose a Presidential Candidate, even then, We The People will probably not choose any one person to be “THE” TEA Party’s single voice.
Every locale from town, city, county, borough, commonwealth, etc, to district and State has its own leadership for its own particular region. That is the essence of the Grass Roots leadership. Someone from Idaho can’t speak for someone from Alabama. WE The People understand that.
The Liberals/Marxists have leaders who speak for all of them. They put everyone into one-size-fits-all thereby stifling individuality.
I think the FEAR the Liberal Leadership has is that the concept of Individuality will catch on with some Liberals. We The People must push the issue of Individual Freedoms loud enough for the Liberals to take notice and to give it some consideration.
No one enjoys being told what to do. Even Liberals are human [well, some of them]. All We The People need to do is stress that WE don’t TELL people what to do, WE expect people to do their own individual research.
And I think this is why many Independents have joined the TEA Party Rallies and various groups.
Well, all that and that we’re a bunch of good looking, happy people. lol
in that same vein:
All I want is November air,
Congress repealing Obama-care,
Go the way of Blago’s big hair,
Oh woooouldn’t it be loverly!
Growth resuming on old Wall St.,
Pelosi and a real job can finally meet,
And Barbara Boxer’s seat,
Oh woooouldn’t it be loverly!
Wouldn’t it be loverly!
