Norquist: 'Tea Party 2' Backlash if Obama Sends Nation Over Fiscal Cliff
Sunday, December 2, 2012 04:09 PM
Grover Norquist, the founder of Americans for Tax Reform, predicted a tea party backlash that would dwarf the movements success in the 2010 midterm elections if President Barack Obama pushes the nation over the fiscal cliff.
Tea Party two is going to dwarf tea party one if Obama pushes us off the cliff, warned Norquist on NBCs Meet The Press.
When asked Are you over? by host David Gregory, Norquist responded, That was last weeks news.

“American companies need to stop exporting American jobs.”
Amen to that! But you’ll never hear al-Norquist or his Club for Growth buddies say that.
Exactly, we are partying on our grandkids’ dime. Time for the party to end.
Says the ladyparts voter who wouldn't know conservatism if it bayoneted her in the neck.
I think now, rather than a backlash, you'll see a lot of hunkering down, survivalism, moving money to the safest places possible, and so on. Protests won't do much at this point. Since the Dems won almost all their senate races, there is not even a threat there.
“Says the ladyparts voter who wouldn’t know conservatism if it bayoneted her in the neck.”
Rush juxtaposed the answer obama gave to a similar question with Rubio's, though they used different words they essentially said the same thing.
The only difference that we're seeing now is the reaction to each one because of who said it.
Rubio's answer was just fine, now his stance on immigration is another thing.
And how would you keep American companies from exporting American jobs?
You just disrespected those of us who think the “age of the Earth” is a very, very stupid question that does not impact deficits, spending, defense or any other important issue.
The hoi polloi have spoken. For the time being, all politics comes down to expanding their access to Other People’s Money. But don’t lose heart. Someday very soon there will be no more of Other People’s Money to distribute and the natural order will be restored. After that we can rebuild the USA.
Year 6, in any 8 year Presidential term, is ALWAYS a disaster at the ballot box, for the Party in control of the White House.
LOL. You have no clue. Now run along back to DU before you get butthurt.
Usually, but not 1998. That was an exceptional case, though. The moral of the 1998 mid-terms is that if the party out of power wants to pick up seats, it should not give the popular will the “finger.” Voters remember that.
The Whigs lost because they stood for nothing.
You do not understand history.
Yes we have some human beings in our Party who make human mistakes.
I suggest you follow your own tag line and try to be more “positive”.
Well I will jump on that question while waiting for the other poster to answer:
We do so by country. Any country running a surplus with America pays a percentage fine on their goods, proportional to their percentage surplus the prior year.
Anyway lots of things would work, that is just one.
I expect American companies to act like American companies.
That is simple.
You do not have much training in economics, either of you.
That is obvious from your posts.
Manufacturing ran like rats to 4th world dungheaps LONG before Zero came to power. Manufacturers like setting up shop in countries where they can pay 10 year old kids pennies per hour for sewing sneakers that sell for $100 at Foot Locker, and can dump their sludge in the nearest pond without anyone saying anything.
Medicare was established under the "GREAT SOCIETY" scheme.
Immediately: WE started paying for that PONZI SCHEME, now for over 40 years, paying into it, and now to be shut out is just not right. WE PAID and paid and paid.
We also paid our SS. I wish the younger people would understand this. WE PAID, they took the MONEY right out of our checks, they stole it, that money is OURS, it is owed us and it is not WELFARE.
Now what we do want: WE WANT ALL unnecessary Items to be put on the TABLE. See Sen. Coburns list for starters, then add all the AID TO FOREIGN COUNTRIES who are also our enemy.
In those items ALONE is more than enough money to fund all other already "paid for" necessary & vital spending right here in the U.S.
What GOV't is saying is "Our enemies are worth more than our own people". That is a fact.
Why is it that the "OLD PEOPLE" keep getting crucified by the Gov't and attitudes of the young, we have carried the burden and NOW STILL only have the interest of the young in our minds.
You young need to start attacking GOVERNMENT FIRST before even discussing what us OLD people want or need.
