The Fifty-Eight Percent Gap

Only about 22% of Americans think they 'belong' to the TEA Party movement.

But:

Nearly 80 percent of Americans say they do not trust the U.S. government to do what is right --Reuters, citing a Pew study.

Meaning that 58% of Americans are latent members.

No wonder the MSM talking-point sheep are bleating "Sedition!!!" at the request of David Axelrod. As Ace pointed out, "Racists!!" didn't get anywhere.

I think it's more that there are so many right-wing bloggers running around casting veiled threats like "buy more ammo!" that give them the wingnut rep. Do you have your flag up today in observation of those killed by one such wingnut?

talking point? It's very name is based off of a famous rebellion.

My guess is that the vast majority of the 58% don't want to be considered Republicans. As this is a Republican movement, they're staying away from the Tea Party member label.

Ah, you guys are so misinformed. But that's ok. It's always better when the opposition doesn't know your plans.

It'll be fun for us "hillbilly idiots" to figuratively kick your pathetic little asses in November.

Oh...make sure the Leftist thugs know Ann Coulter is at UWM tomorrow night. Want to see more of that "tolerance" you guys have.

Tolerance is NOT a liberal trait, nor is intolerance a conservative trait. It is a HUMAN TRAIT.

I never claimed differently. It's the Left that puts the claim on tolerance, so I thought I'd call them on their hypocrisy.

J. Strupp said...

I think you prove my point quite well with every comment Deekaman.

Jimspice...you mean wingnuts like Amy Bishop, the prof who killed three of her colleagues and is a big time 0bama supporter?
