  • Has the Tea Party Peaked? (What has been gained stands to be lost)

    American Thinker ^ | 02/14/2012 | Perry Fisher
    An 800-pound gorilla in a room otherwise full of Tea Party types needs to be pointed out: people who prefer smaller government tend not to especially like government. Human nature being what it is, we tend to avoid that which we don't like. Which is okay except for the equal and opposite other gorilla: the political left actually likes government and, thereby, governing. It amounts to a built-in default, as if one football team suited up eleven players and the other just ten. If the typical Tea Party affiliate ignored a building mess as long as she could, dusted off...

    Democrats look back to 2008Written by Christopher Cadelago 10:30 a.m., Feb. 12, 2012 Democratic leaders this weekend implored attendees at the state party convention in San Diego to harness the energy and enthusiasm of 2008, casting the upcoming elections as pivotal moments that will determine the trajectory of the country for decades to come. Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Saturday that the only way to maintain the firewall against Republican and tea party “extremism” is to re-elect President Barack Obama, return her to the U.S. Senate for another term and marshal the resources to regain control of the House of Representatives....

    It would have been just any mundane clash of civilizations with points thrown and missed until a Mad Hatter in the form of the gregarious Tea Partier appears in the thick of the stand off between Occupiers and Conservatives and says - hey stop shouting at each other - you got at least 60% in common - so lets have some beers (many beers) and discuss this. And so began the Beer Summit an initiative between possibly the minuteman wing of the Tea Party - attendees at the CPAC and some of the Occupiers who came to protest CPAC. At...

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ^ | February 12, 2012 | Daniel Malloy
    Long before the tea party movement became an American political phenomenon, Newt Gingrich chucked empty produce crates into the Chattahoochee River in Roswell as part of a tax day re-enactment of the Boston Tea Party. The year was 1994, and the Georgia congressman was months away from reaching the apex of his political career as U.S. House speaker. As he now seeks the presidency, Gingrich casts himself as an intellectual forefather of the grass-roots movement that has redefined Republican politics, and as the man best suited to harness its energy against the “establishment” choice, Mitt Romney. So far, tea party...

    ELECTION DAY TEA PARTY ^ | The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition
    On November 6, 2012, the United States faces a turning point. Will we restore our constitutional republic or will we continue to slide into European style collectivist statism? Almost three years ago, on February 27, 2009, average American citizens who stand for individual liberty started the Tea Party movement. Our goal has always been to return our country to the three core values of constitutionally limited government, free markets, and fiscal responsibility. The election battle of 2012 will be fought from precinct to precinct in every corner of the country. The Left will use every financial, media, and paid staff...

    Palin Hints at Romney Flaws BY PETER NICHOLAS WASHINGTON—Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin didn't endorse any of the Republicans presidential candidates in a speech to conservative activists Saturday, but she hinted that Mitt Romney might be a flawed candidate in a general-election matchup with President Barack Obama. Ms. Palin, the 2008 vice-presidential nominee, told a raucous crowd that the Republican candidate needed to be someone whose conservatism is heartfelt and "instinctive." "It's too late in the game to teach it or spin it at this point," said Ms. Palin, who didn't mention the Republican hopefuls by name. "It's either there...

    Manassas, VA, February 11, 2012 -- Although he will not appear on the Virginia Presidential primary ballot on March 6, it did not stop Manassas Tea Party members from selecting Rick Santorum as the overwhelming winner in a straw poll conducted at its monthly meeting of members last evening. In the straw poll which also contained the U.S. Senate Virginia seat and Manassas City Council races, Santorum swept the Presidential poll with 67% of the vote but equally interesting was Mitt Romney received no votes. Newt Gingrich was second in the poll with 27% and Ron Paul last with only...

    The Danbury News-Times ^ | February 10, 2012 | Professor Jim Bellano
    Since she was plucked from relative obscurity by John McCain to be his vice presidential candidate, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has been at the top of the American political scene. Recently, however, the ebb and flow of the primary season has called into question whether her political star has faded. During the heat of the primary battles, all of the air in the Republican-conservative-Tea Party balloon has been sucked up -- appropriately, by the candidates. Since 2008 that air was the oxygen that fueled the Palin super nova. The prospect of going from Momma Grizzly to political also-ran has...
  • VA AG Ken Cuccinelli debates liberal D Mass AG Coakley over Healthcare

    02/10/2012 10:23:11 AM PST · by Gopher Broke
    Two of the nation’s most prominent attorneys general sparred Thursday over federal health care reform in a precursor to next month’s U.S. Supreme Court battle on President Obama’s signature legislative achievement. Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, a staunch critic of the Affordable Care Act, and his Massachusetts counterpart Martha Coakley, whose state’s health care law served as a model for the federal law, offered vastly different visions for how the high court will ultimately decide the case in June during a forum at the National Press Club. Cuccinelli, a Tea Party darling, predictably opined the Supreme Court would ultimately rule...

So who are the new terrorist threats? New reports from the FBI and Department of Homeland Security point to Americans who cherish their Constitutional rights as the new terrorists.

    MADISON — The state's elections watchdog is saying thanks, but no thanks, to another pair of eyes in the vetting of recall petition signatures, turning down assistance from a conservative-leaning group engaged in its own petition review. “We are finding abnormalities. We are finding duplicates, and we will make all this information open to the public and available,” Larry Gamble from the Wisconsin GrandSons of Liberty, an organization sympathetic to the tea party agenda, and Verify the Recall, told members of the Government Accountability Board, or GAB, Tuesday.

    Madison - Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said Tuesday he will challenge thousands of signatures this week - enough to prevent a recall election against him if state officials agree. Fitzgerald made the comments Tuesday as the state Government Accountability Board disclosed it is considering using statistical sampling to determine how frequently duplicate names have appeared on petitions to recall Fitzgerald, Gov. Scott Walker and four other Republicans. The board's director, Kevin Kennedy, said the board is committed to creating a database of those who signed the Walker recall petitions to find people who may have signed twice. But the...

    It's been at least ten minutes since our last Breaking News Story about the imminent (or already past) demise of the Tea Party, so we may as well trot out another one. Excuses for holding this particular wake vary from a general sense of dissatisfaction with the current crop of presidential candidates to perceived failures by the freshman GOP class of 2010 to consistently live up to their promises. The liberal leaning Daily Beast offers up the latest dissection of the Tea Party's corpse this week, with the following bits of “insight.” But after months of wondering how the Tea...
