    Their faces sometimes twisted in anger, 'tea party' followers have been called neo-Klansmen and knuckle-dragging hillbillies. To be sure, angry town halls, the N-word thrown at black congressmen, and signs comparing President Obama to Adolf Hitler play into the hands of the movement's critics. And demonizing tea party activists tends to energize the Democrats' left-of-center base. But political experts say that many such criticisms are near-sighted, if not outright inappropriate – and ultimately may miss the point.

    The Nathanael Greene Lodge, Wesselman Road, Cincinnati (Dent), in Green Township, was the location of Town Hall featuring Democrat Congressman Steve Driehaus.

One of the Democrat/ Liberal pro-Health Insurance people said, "We don't care...
