N.C. Democratic Party’s Response To ‘Tea Party Government Shutdown’
hcpress.com ^ | October 01, 2013

Posted on 10/01/2013 8:41:43 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

Despite members of their own party, including North Carolina’s own Senator Richard Burr shunning such a tactic, the Tea Party caucus has managed to hijack the House of Representatives resulting in the first government shutdown in nearly two decades. The North Carolina Democratic Party (NCDP) released the following statement:

“Tea Party Republicans were warned time and time again that a government shutdown would harm our economy, the middle class and our service men and women. Despite this, Republicans have shirked their responsibility to keep government open for business,” said NCDP Chair Randy Voller.

“The fringe Tea Party minority has seized control of government and lurched from one imaginary crisis to another at the expense of our economy and thousands of hardworking North Carolinians. It’s time for Republicans to get serious by ending this era of obstructionism and focusing on getting Americans back to work.”

That is the most delusional statements I have seen since “We have to pass the bill so we can see what is in it.”

YEP.

Pretty good for a Party that does not formally exist and did not have a single representative present that entire day.

Ok, time for me to "lurch" through three miles.

Harry the Fairy's rejection of the House of Representative's THREE attempts to fully funding all of the fed gov made me late last night.

The Overlords of the Un-Affordable No-Health Care Edicts would be displeased...

I am fringe
I am tea party
I am a clinger to my Bible and my rifle
I love liberty and hate the chains of tyrants
I believe in private property
I believe in personal responsibility
I believe in Biblical morality
I believe that free markets can operate more efficiently than a regulated or government run one
I believe that the debtor is servant to the lender
I believe that forcing a man to pay for something he finds ethically abhorrent is the height of tyranny
I am fringe
I am tea-party

I say we show them what kind of majority we are and send a strong message their way come election time. Then we can really shut the place down Barry Big Ears thought he had it hard; wait till we over run the government with a wave of TEA.

It certainly has been a night full of belly-laughs. Now that group of superannuated patriots too polite to throw trash in the National Mall has seized control of the very government itself! Whatever will we do?

If we could convert hyperbole into oil we'd be richer than the Saudis by tomorrow morning.

Amazing how much fear the Tea Party causes. Imagine if the entire party would stand against these Marxists?

Pray America is Waking Up

Judging by all the articles posted tonight, it looks like the Democrat stenographers are dutifully printing whatever the Dems tell them to print.

“Tea Party Republicans were warned time and time again that a government shutdown would harm our economy, the middle class and our service men and women.”

The libs have done quite a fantastic job themselves in harming ‘our economy, the middle class, and our service personnel.’

Perhaps they don’t want any competition.
