Sens. Stabenow, Snowe added to 'Tea Party Target List' (Tea Party Express attacks RINO Snowe)
CNN - Political Ticker ^ | 2011-02-11 | Shannon Travis

Washington (CNN) – Still swaggering after its recent electoral successes, the Tea Party movement appears to be growing more emboldened as it tries to blaze a path to power.

One new bold move: An activist group is publicly parading a list of lawmakers the group is determined to oust from office.

On Thursday, the Tea Party Express added two more names to its "2012 Tea Party Target List" - Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan and Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine.

(snip)

"Olympia Snowe dishonors the notion that the Republican Party is supposed to be the fiscally conservative, constitutionalist political party in America," Kremer states.

It’s going to take more than one election to show whether or not the American people are really dedicated to deficit reduction and that the 2010 elections weren’t a fluke. Tea Party best not overreach itself like the RATs did.

Snowe voted yes in in committee for the abomination known as Obamacare.

How she can call herself a fiscal conservative after that is beyond my comprehension.

This is great news. My fiancee' sends Stabenow an e-mail EVERY DAY asking her to resign and go ruin someone else's country. This picture also tells the tale:

"If they had supported [Snowe's] legislative trigger mechanism back in 2001, to preserve federal surpluses and pay down our debt...

Wouda, shouda, couda...People change once they get to Washington. I worked as an economic adviser for Lugar in his first Senate bid. Now, I won't even vote for him. He's pure RINO.

Also, re-read the article an notice CNN's use of emotional words like emboldened, blaze a path to power, audacious, purged and others. Biased reporting doesn't have to deal just with skewing the news, painting it with dark colors has the same effect.

Still swaggering after its recent electoral successes. . .

Swaggering? I'm not swaggering. Is anyone on FR swaggering?

No, I think the sentence should have been written as "Still vigilant after its recent electoral successes. . ."

"Swaggering".

Gawd I hate the dinosaur media.

No doubt the US Marines "swaggared" onto Iwo Jima.


Today is a good day to die.
I didn't say for whom.

Swaggering, taunting, and being “in your face” is what Nanzi Pelousi did with the giant gavel after the forced gov’t healthcare on our nation that didn’t want it.

Collins isn’t mentioned on the TEA Party hit list for only one reason.....

the RINO Susan isn’t up for re-election until 2014.

Snowe voted for Porkulus, then admitted in a radio interview that calls and emails to her office were running three to one against it. What a perfect advertisement that would make.

She is a disgrace to her country. I’m a ME resident, and I will spend every spare moment of time and every spare nickel I have to throw her out of office.

That time and money will be a better investment. I will give the maximum legal amount to the conservative with the best chance of tossing that far-left liberal out of our Senate.

Recall that “swagger” was the agreed-on MSM code word applied to GWB early in his Presidency to belittle him.

(Also recall that the oh-so-hip term “swagga” was just as unanimously applied to Obama early on as well, but as a compliment, until the obvious hypocricy was pointed out, at which point it immediately and completely disappeared from MSM use.)

I hear that Stabenow is single again...A real hero would marry her with the idea being to help ruin her chances of ever being elected again. Keep your friends close and your enemies even closer.

When you have to deal with a Democrat Congress and the federal bureaucracy you can’t just say, “You’re fired!” Things get a little trickier. However, with any luck and a lot of hard work there won’t be a Democrat Congress after 2012.
