MR. GREGORY: Well, almost a year ago, I talked to you. You thought the tea party would die out as the economy got better. You, you weren't right about that.

SEN. REID: Well, I think the tea party's dying out as the economy's getting better slowly.

MR. GREGORY: You do think that?

SEN. REID: Oh, sure, no question about it. And, and, and you--and, and you...

MR. GREGORY: Well, we just talked about their, their muscular impact on the process.

SEN. REID: Well, but that's during the past year. I would hope that the two Republican leaders have learned what took place in the previous year. And, you know, what we have to focus on this year is rebuilding the economy. We have to, and the only way to do that is to create jobs and that's why the agenda that I'm moving forward on, I hope with some cooperation from the Republicans this time, is to do something about creating jobs. Our surface transportation bill, it'll save a million jobs, create a lot more jobs, Federal Aviation Administration, that's more than 200,000 jobs. We're having a very important piece of legislation, important to this network right here, IP, and that's of course dealing with informational--with, with making sure that we have intellectual property that's protected and we need to do that. And that--that's also job saving. So that's what we need to work on, things that create jobs and protect the American economy.

Oh the Tea Party is still here, we just don’t have the time to “occupy” a park, a bank branch, or an empty house, all for the media. We prefer to use our resources with maximum effect, occupying the voting booth.

Tea Party dying out as the GOP holds its head under water.

See you in 2013. Leaner, meaner, and with no more illusions.

“Where’s this recovery?”

It is lost in the rising seas caused by global warming, it seems the oceans forgot to rise and actually dropped a quarter of an inch in the past year. The recovery is as real as the rising seas. There is more evidence for the existence of Sasquatch than there is for a recovery. Liberals are amazing, they have no problem believing in the nonexistent but will deny truth that is staring them in the face. The imaginary recovery is real to them but Obama’s treason is invisible.

The #OWS made a lot of press, got loaded, seduced under-aged girls, seized property for their encampments, broke a zillion laws, defecated on police cars [not dead terrorists] —and accomplished?

Tea Party vs. OWS, good versus evil the never ending battle in some form another.

I get emails from the Tea Party. Is there more than one national organization? This one mostly asks for donations and signed by Todd Cefaratti Freedom Organizer.

Comrade Reid will fade away before the spirit of Liberty does.

Tea party has not died out at all.It just doesn’t have the funds with the way the democrats wrecked the economy to camp out n DC since they are working and paying for your salary Mr Reid.Is it wrong to hope that the hand of G*d comes soon and whacks your corrupt self?

DNC Dave mentioned it but said there had been no Senate budget for a ‘year’. He's either trying to soften the incompetence of the rats or he deliberately ignores the facts.

“I want to thank all the Arizonans who gave us this Marxist imbecile.”

LOL. The ironic jokes write themselves here every day.

These days it’s difficult to discern much difference between Arizona and Nevada. McLame or Reidnavitch—samo, samo.

Consider this a formal post correction. Doesn’t really change the bottom line.

Thank you. In my dotage I wrongly associated Reid with Arizona. Correcting the record doesn’t change the bottom line, though.

I just love “gotchas”, don’t you?

I hope you didn't think my reply to you was a Gotcha. I've been corrected by our fellow FReepers many times.

If you noticed, I mentioned Ried’s good buddy McCain in my response to you. Two birds of a feather living on different sides of the same tree.

Besides, we all know what a snake Reid is. A snake from Arizona or a snake from Nevada is still a snake. #;^)

No, I was not directing that comment to you. In retrospect, I should not have included it in my post to you. Two other posts were, IMHO, clearly “gotchas”.

Moving along, I feel like I’m living in the Twilight Zone. We have Marxist buffoons like Reid and Pelosi creating and repeating straight up lies, we have the national GOP pleading with conservative/Pubbie candidates not to take on the Usurping Marxist Onada, we have the likes of Bawney Fwanks running before any microphone they can find creating and repeating lies about how the American economy failed, we have a national GOP that’s been copted by Marxist demrats and we have a country where most of the infrastructure (education, media, unions, religious leadership, Wall Street leadership and the judiciary) has been copted by the Marxists. We have an economy that is being destroyed by the Marxist regime in Washington while people pretend otherwise. And so on.

Very discouraging.
