Skip to comments.Shutdown: The tea party’s last stand (psychotic Lib rant)
Posted on 10/07/2013 6:21:00 AM PDT by pabianice
If the nation is lucky, this October will mark the beginning of the end of the tea party.
The movement is suffering from extreme miscalculation and a foolish misreading of its opponents intentions. This, in turn, has created a moment of enlightenment, an opening to see things that were once missed.
Many Republicans, of course, saw the disaster coming in advance of the shutdown. But they were terrified to take on a movement that is fortified by money, energy and the backing of a bloviating brigade of talk-show hosts. The assumption was that the tea party had become invincible inside the GOP.
People who knew better followed Sen. Ted Cruz down a path of confrontation over Obamacare. Yet even before the shutdown began, Republicans stopped talking about an outright repeal of Obamacare, as House Speaker John Boehners ever-changing demands demonstrated.
The extent of the rout was then underscored in the hot-microphone incident last week when Sen. Rand Paul was caught plotting strategy with Sen. Mitch McConnell. Pauls words, spoken after he had finished a television interview, said more than he realized.

EJ, the bed wetter, declared the Tea Party dead a month ago. Nostradamus in urine ain’t too purty.
It’s only the beginning.
I love it when liberals attempt hide their hatred under an umbrella of phony concern.
It’s almost a high...
I guess his caretakers let E.J out of his straitjacket long enough for him to write his thoroughly demented columns. The Tea Party is here to stay. He and his elite, upper-crust Republican friends better get used to it.
The Tea Party is working to fix things in America. The Left is working to destroy things. They are the epitome of Do-nothings. They are promoting what is virtually a sit-down strike in the Federal Government. A closure is not what this is.
Where do I go to get the 45 seconds I wasted reading the vapid dreck from this assclown?
The attack is not a last stand but an assault on the left wing that has breached the outer defenses.
Dingy Harry is the vulnerable commander of the defenses. He will die in his efforts to throwback the attackers. His tenure will be over
As a writer, Dionne is only safe in the six inch wading pool, IF he has his little float devices firmly attached to his upper arms and torso.
You almost feel pity for the man, except you realize what he is failing at accomplishing, and realize how pathetic he is at doing evil.
Civil War Two Ping.
Dionne encapsulates the thinking of the statists very well, and shows the risk of an all-out conflict beginning November if Obama refuses to budge on the debt limit.
He might take the opportunity to cut off all entitlement checks, and blame it on the Republicans. If the EBT/SNAP money is cut off, our cities could explode.
The music may stop in November.
When the music stops: how America’s cities may explode in violence
Completely delusional and living in an alternate reality. If the writer was paying attention, he would see that what’s worse than the shutdown is the implementation of Obamacare. It is a fiasco and one that will be long and drawn out into the next year. Suddenly, all the TEA Party’s claims are going to materialize into big, bold facts. Even my sister who hates Sarah Palin had to admit she was right about the death panels.
“...his October will mark the beginning of the end of the tea party. ...”
In your dreams, “Dionne”.
To believe this author one must be like the town folk in this short clip. Let’s hope the House Republicans are not this stooopid!
The TEA Party will end when the last progressive draws a breath... and that will be a loooooooong time because unlike obama, the rat party and his SS... Conservatives do not murder people.
Let’s hope this lick-spittle mouthpiece for the Left has the shock of his life next fall when the USA votes conservatives into office across the nation. Perhaps there will be an ObamaCare plan for Leftist scribblers admitting them to psychiatric institutions for free meds.
“First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.”...
I love the smell of fear in the morning...smells like victory.
Not a bad paraphrase...
“...his October will mark the beginning of the end of the tea party. ...”
...and then “Dionne” woke up and let go of his limp crank.
If it comes, it comes. Bound to sooner or later.
Psychotic lefties don’t understand “Live and let live”. They’re in a state of perpetual warfare with everyone and everything that doesn’t immediately submit to their sick worldview.
The lib’s are so very close to creating their One Party police state.
And they do want it so very badly.
Sorry Dionne whoveryouare, I see a very large Teapot brimming with fired up citizens.
Perhaps Dionne should be penning his own epitaph!
Well, likely the GOPe’s last chance to continue forward as an entity with any support.
Thanks for the ping, Matt.
He clearly has no idea what he's talking about inre to either the TeaParty or the shutdown. He's oblivious to the feelings out here in fly-over country. We're tired of funding their never ending cocktail party.
In my view the longer the shutdown lasts the stronger the TeaParty position becomes. W/ every passing day we see Obama and the other dhimmis make tactical errors and issue insane denounciations.
Furthermore, the GOP has make a tactical concession by offeringa one-year delay, the dhimmis are standing pat because they think the msm will pull the public in their favor, but I'm not sure they have that much juice anymore.
The take away from the article is that our opponents are completely clueless about the TeaParty.
Unfortunately, with or without Obamacare, there will be Death Panels, in one form or another.
When the money runs out, the money runs out.
The cost of Medicare has been doubling every eight years for the last thirty. A couple more doublings and it will consume the entirety of the current Federal budget. A couple more after that and it consumes the entirety of the current US GDP.
That obviously can’t happen.
The money will run out.
There will be, if not “death panels”, then blanket denial of benefits.
The unkeepable promises that were made, on an industrial scale, over the course of a couple of generations, will be broken, on an industrial scale, over the course of a couple of years.
When you are taking flak, you are over the target...
Libs have a problem with projection, ascribing their own fears and motives to their opposition.
It’s gonna get them hurt one of these days.
TeaParty vs Cocktail Party
This guy can dream on. It is not Tea Party’s last stand. It is MSM’s last stand.
The smackdown with Candy Crowley illustrates that truth and care for the country and ypung people is taking root.
Voters are connecting with each other and with constitutionalists. No longer is MSM trusted and it will get worse for them quickly and exponentially
A paradigm is shifting. Dems no longer will have power of informationn candidates will be honest brokers eschewing even big corporation money in favor of the power of reaching voters through virtual town hall meetings and getting their audience to think critically.
The dems flop in that arena. But it’s the new arena. And it just took over. Even big takers like Boehner and Rubio have to join in. The MSM is over the dems just don’t know it yet
It’s alway instructive to read these dimwit rants, by Dionne and a host of others, as precise expressions of the truth about THEMSELVES. Freud called this “projection”.
A good way to respond to anybody who rants about “Tea Party Republicans” is to return the favor and complain about “Communist Party Democrats”.
Well, all but the "percussion instruments".
A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....if it ever had one in the first place.
You’ll enjoy this jonrick...
Carry this message everywhere. Spread it far and wide.
The people who were happy to expend hundreds of Mexican lives and several Americans in Fast & Furious to pump up phony gun crime statistics,
the people who left 40 Americans to fend for themselves and four to die in Benghazi to avoid political embarrassment,
the people who brought down the IRS on Americans merely exercising their rights to free speech,
the people who sold out Seal Team Six to keep them silent about the bin Laden raid,
the people who threatened to arrest 80 year old WWII veterans for merely looking at their own memorial, the people who put up a Berlin wall to keep Americans out of George Washingtons house(!)
- these people will not hesitate to use their control over your health care - that you gave them - to inflict pain when it suits their political purposes.

Too much for a tagline - but it needs to be shared...
The name Tea Party is now obsolete. Proposed new designation: 1776. We’re well beyond dumping the tea.
I saw this lickspittle on PBS briefly over the weekend.
I detest the worm.
Sounds like Joseph Goebbles from good ole uncle adolph’s camp during the nazi run at world domination. The saying went “The bigger the lie the more they will believe it”. Amazing that these idiot assclowns are trying to persuade those that are not fooled by the fool! He needs to go home and rest his neck.
Sure, E.J. Just like the 'Rats fiddled with Senate rules to pass the Unaffordable Care Act.
you need to change your meds.

We are not arguing with rational people.
Well, no one is saying that liberals/democrats are smarter than a bag of hammers...
Its actually almost an insult to hammers...
You know, if you hang him by his ankles he’ll drown in six inches of water...
When the music stops, I know I’ll have a chair...
And I have the means to keep it...
