DGA sounds Tea Party alarm (Democratic Governors Assoc.)
politico ^ | 2/03/10 | DAVID CATANESE

Posted on 02/04/2010 2:52:23 PM PST by blueyon

On the eve of the first National Tea Party Convention, the Democratic Governors Association blasted a dire fundraising e-mail to supporters, warning that the loosely organized movement has become a “truly dangerous” political force.

“These guys aren’t going away. They’ve proven they can raise millions in a matter of hours and they’re skewing elections across the nation,” wrote Colleen Turrentine, the DGA's finance director.

“Can you imagine the havoc they would wreak if they took office en masse?” Turrentine continued. “If they had their way, how many states would even stay in the U.S.?”

I think there is more behind Medina than is public. When she first came out; there was absolutely nothing about her family. That to me is a red flag. I wrote her campaign about it and nothing from them; just a direction to her campaign site.

I don’t care for people who duck questions. They usually don’t tell the truth.

I am still curious as how they or whoever chose her why?

Sounds too much like a wild card like Obama and we all know how that turned out.

It's great fun to see the enemy when he knows you know he's so screwed.

And, yes, you Dims are the enemy. You are not my countrymen.

I am seeing Obama doing something crazy like giving $50,000 to each family in the country .... maybe from the leftover stimulus money, maybe printed, who knows from where, he can just spend it without worrying where it will come from. Then he might send a “teaser” of $10,000 to each family. Can you imagine the elation of the people. I would be willing to bet that even some of the teaparty supporters would think twice about turning down that money. Then Obama could say, “vote for the conservatives and you loose the remaining $40,000 still owed to you.”

First they made fun of us. Then the called us nasty names. Then they tried to pretend we’re too small and disorganized to matter. Now, they’re in full panic mode.

"... [Tea Party movement] is skewing elections across the nation," wrote Colleen Turrentine, finance director of the Democratic Governors' Association.

I suppose, according to Ms. Turrentine, that the election fraud engaged in by her party in '06 and '08 wasn't "skewing" any races at all!

Of course, the big difference is that the 'Rats were all too frequently violating election laws blatantly and without consequence, while the current Tea Party movement does not promote lawlessness at all.

Imodium time for all Liberal RATs whose ship is sinking. ROFLMAO

Turnabout is fair. We’re on to their duplicity, their corruption, and their thug tactics. This time, we’ll be watching, exposing, and prosecuting their thugs.

This movement appeared after a rant by Rick Santelli. I was watching CNBC at the time... and trust me - he didn't know what he was starting - none of us did. Even the traders on the floor were surprised and clapping.

Google it.

There wasn't a "plan"... People are sick of lying democrats and their fake letters to the editor, their fake letters to their own people and endless bull. The tea party movement is going to grow - because it's REAL.

“Skewing” must be their latest keyword. If the pubs win a race they are accused of ‘skewing’ it.....

The dems count illegals and dead voters and allow Black Panthers with clubs to intimidate at polling stations and they get away with it!

I’ve seen ‘skewed’ used in several articles lately. Have been reading Drudge and other forums.

It is.....and that is our strength. There is no single target for the Rats and RINOs to isolate, ridicule and demonize. We know who we are, what we are about and what we want.....and our enemies can't figure it out......GOOD!!!!!

Rather than "loosely organized" I prefer "decentralized and dynamic". No leaders to destroy or co-opt.

It's like the old "Kung Fu" TV series that David Carradine was in back in the '70s: "Look for him, he cannot be seen. Listen, he cannot be heard. Reach for him, he cannot be touched."

The Tea Parties operate in loose networks. Members communicate via private email. There is no real membership list. People show up as the mood strikes them. Who are the Tea Partiers? Who is the wind...
