Mosque debate strains tea party, GOP ( No it doesn't )
PoliticObama ^ | August 10th | Kenneth P Vogel

I loved this line from page 3:

Despite the absence of most tea party groups from the debate, allegations have swirled that the movement is somehow driving the increasing GOP opposition


TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: drivebymedia; hitpiece; rulingclass; teaparty
LOL

So most of the tea party groups are absent from this debate, but somehow the ruling class media ( politico ) had to go out and desperately search for something, anything.......... any kind of straw possible to drive the 'heat' into a 'bipartisan' realm.

I guess absence = strain to those learned and elite journalists. *shrug*

Allegations are swirling........ that's the basis of all this. How does that old saying go? It's not the nature of the evidence, it's the seriousness of the charge?

The sad thing about the liberal ‘RAT meltdown is watching all the liberals lose their grip on sanity and reality.

They still can’t find the Tea Party leader so they figure it is fractured since nobody is pysically at the helm to submit a PR statement.

I am very proud of all the people who where there to show we will not stand by and lose our country to a death cult religion. We are on the right side of this fight that I believe has just begun. I wish I could have made it, but will for 8/28! See you there!

Definately! But if nothing else, we have to give the media credit where the credit is due, and for that we have consistency.

The media is always consistently on the attack.

Some from the left are trying to spin that the Republican Party got the base to be against the mosque. But I would say it was the base who got the GOP to join us, and be against the mosque.

The comical thing is the commielibs hiding behind “freedom of religion” to endore the Victory Lap Mosque. Like these commies respect religion.

It’s the constipated left that I see straining. The Tea Party is doing just fine, thank you.

This is not about freedom of religion, this is about defending our Country from foreign invasion.

Islam is a Totalitarian Political Ideology complete with its own military under the guise of a religion.

the muslims, and some of the far left kook elitists are trying to make this a right v left issue or a republican v Dem issue when clearly it is not.

Now they either do think that or they really are way out of touch with the public and the America.

They did this with the homosexuals agenda, the AZ law and they just can’t help themselves at all.

The “mosque debate” “strains” the Tea Party in the same way a tea-strainer strains the dross out of a cup of tea:

It separates the pseudo-Conservatives like Lindsay Graham and John McLame and his whacko daughter from the rest of us, making clear the differences, and in so doing performs a HUGE service to the GOP!

"But I would say it was the base who got the GOP to join us, and be against the mosque."

It DOES always seem to be that way, deosn't it? with our "leaders" scurrying like little rodents to try to get out in front of the parade.

Oh right. The Tea Party movement MUST be involved, since it has been so quiet, and behind the scenes on so many other issues. /s

The mosque debate is being "stained" by the pro-obama radicals who want to join in on collective pissing on the graves of almost 3,000 people who died on 9/11.

The favorite ploy of progressive liberals is projection...to project what they are doing on to others to put them on the defensive.

Don't let it work...

I’m thinking WE are the real leaders, including Tea Party folks.

Neither the tea party nor the GOP started this debate. Obama really fanned the flames himself by weighing in and bringing it to more people’s attention and then it really became a political issue. Then Pelosi followed up by suggesting those who disagreed with the mosque be placed under investigation. Then the issue over who is funding it and the true motivation behind it, and the ideology of those behind it. It is not just about a building.
