    Can I ask something? Why is everyone so hushed up about the Tea Party Convention?

    Gateway Pundit is live blogging the Tea Party Convention…

    Can I ask something? Why is everyone so hushed up about the Tea Party Convention?

  3. VotingFemale says:

    There is not enough information about what is going on at the Tea Party Convention for me to comment on it… that will come in the days following.

    There is a blurring between the grass roots protesters who attended “Tea Party” Protests… and the organization called “The Tea Party”

    I want to see if the movement is hijacked or not by the GOP or if it is going to go off in some strange direction or not.

    not enough data… yet.

  4. VotingFemale says:

    I have always been leery of political parties in general.

  5. samiam60 says:

    We the People have vowed to take back our Country from these so-called Progressive Socialists who have no place here in our Republic. We will not, as a Free People, ever surrender to Socialism, Marxism, nor Communism and the sooner the Progressive Elitists get that through their thick skulls, the better off and safer this world will be.

    Mr. President, do not underestimate what the American People will fight for. If you do, you will find yourself on the losing side of history. Americans are now busy resetting the course of American History and yes we are even going to correct our school books so that we have an inclusive, complete, and accurate documenting of American History and not some super altered Progressive evolution of our minds. The truth is out there now and Americans are flocking to it in record numbers to reinforce our resolve to end once and for all the Progressive Movement in the United States of America.

  6. VotingFemale says:

    Sammy, well said, sir.

  7. samiam60 says:

    Thank you VF,

    Just a copy and paste job from your sister

  8. samiam60 says:

    VF, my friends over at CNN keep calling a Promise Keeper and a Terrorist.

    I have been nice to them for 3 days now and with over 700 comments my patience is wearing thin.

    I might have to nuke em.

  9. Foxwood says:

    Well… The Saints are going to lose the Superbowl…

    Obutthole is rooting for them. 😦

  10. rosehips says:

    thanks for your response re: tea party, VF. makes sense.
    You are wise to wait and assess. I agree there is not enough info yet.
    When I saw that Michelle Bachman, who I admire, backed away, it made take notice. Now CNN is focusing on it and Campbell Brown seems to have her sites on it. I’m sure they will tear the convention and gov Palin apart.

  11. samiam60 says:

    Here is a lib comment from CNN thread.

    I love freaking out teabags by telling them I can’t wait till the day comes when we are all broown skinned and have brown eyes and hair.

    It makes them go insane, but I really do look forward to that day, which can not get here fast enough. It will not be until then, that racism goes away.

  12. Foxwood says:

    “I might have to nuke em.”

    If you need some help, I’m good at nuking…

  13. samiam60 says:

    Kinda sad really.

  14. samiam60 says:

    I don’t know how to put a link on here foxwood without giving up my identity. Not that it matters the White house has my number now.

  15. Foxwood says:

    “It makes them go insane, but I really do look forward to that day, which can not get here fast enough. It will not be until then, that racism goes away.”

    And what he said isn’t racist?

  16. samiam60 says:

    I know it is Foxwood. It is the old liberal double standard.

    Al Franken lays into David Axelrod over health care bill

    Sen. Al Franken ripped into White House senior adviser David Axelrod this week during a tense, closed-door session with Senate Democrats.

    Five sources who were in the room tell POLITICO that Franken criticized Axelrod for the administration’s failure to provide clarity or direction on health care and the other big bills it wants Congress to enact.

    The sources said Franken was the most outspoken senator in the meeting, which followed President Barack Obama’s question-and-answer session with Senate Democrats at the Newseum on Wednesday. But they also said the Minnesotan wasn’t the only angry Democrat in the room.

    “There was a lot of frustration in there,” said a Democratic senator who declined to be identified.

    “People were hot,” another Democratic senator said.

    Democratic senators are frustrated that the White House hasn’t done more to win over the public on health care reform and other aspects of its ambitious agenda — and angry that, in the wake of Scott Brown’s win in the Massachusetts Senate race, the White House hasn’t done more to chart a course for getting a health care bill to the president’s desk.

    In his public session with the senators Wednesday, Obama urged them to “finish the job” on health care but did not lay out a path for doing so. That uncertainty appeared to trigger Franken’s anger, and the sources in the room said he laid out his concerns much more directly than any senator did in the earlier public session.

    The private session was set up in a panel format, with Axelrod joined at the front of the room by Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine and Democratic strategist Paul Begala.

    A Democratic source said that Franken directed his criticism solely at Axelrod.

    “It was all about leadership and health care and what the plan was going to be,” the source said.

    Franken — a comedian turned liberal talk show host — vowed to keep a relatively low profile when he arrived in the Senate over the summer after a protracted legal battle with former GOP Sen. Norm Coleman. But he has developed a reputation among his colleagues as one of the more aggressive personalities on the Hill.

    Last November, after Tennessee Republican Sens. Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander authored an op-ed in a local paper defending their opposition to a Franken amendment, Franken confronted both men on the floor — and grew particularly irritated with Corker.

    He lashed out at Corker and a staff member in a follow-up meeting about the matter, several people said. Franken also clashed with South Dakota Sen. John Thune, No. 4 in GOP leadership, last month in a scathing speech during the health care debate, and staffers have reported other run-ins.

    The White House, the Democratic National Committee and Franken’s office all declined to speak on the record about Wednesday’s session. Begala did not respond to a request for comment.

    RH has asked

    Why is everyone so hushed up about the Tea Party Convention?

    I found enough articles and background info on it that I was able to do a report on it the other day and why I felt Sarah Palin needed to move carefully in the morass that is the movement. It is splintered.

  20. samhenry says:

    Hi Tellit

    Franken wasn’t funny on SNL; he’s not funny now. He always was a bully. He’s just nuts. End of story.

  21. tellitlikeitis says:

    Hi SH!

  22. samhenry says:

    We Western New Yorkers look in awe at the southern Mid-atlantic to Virginia area with the snow. I feel sorry for their pain – the largest part of which is the fact that they don’t have the equipment to deal with it.

    In the past we have sent down our men with HUGE plows to bail them out. That is the only bailout that makes sense.

    Lech Walesa’s Warning for America


    RUSH: Here’s Lech Walesa. This is last Friday in Chicago at a campaign event for Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Andrzejewski, and this is what he said, a portion of his remarks.

    WALESA (via translator): The United States is only one superpower. Today they lead the world. Nobody has doubts about it. Militarily. They also lead economically but they’re getting weak. But they don’t lead morally and politically anymore. The world has no leadership. The United States was always the last resort and hope for all other nations. There was the hope, whenever something was going wrong, one could count on the United States. Today, we lost that hope.

    RUSH: So that’s Lech Walesa. The United States no longer leads the world morally and we are moving toward socialism. By the way, these Illinois elections, there’s a bunch of primaries there tomorrow. I don’t want to jinx things but it could well be that the Republicans are going to score big time tomorrow, and there’s a particular candidate that’s being described as the Scott Brown of his contest.

  24. rosehips says:

    I’ve got to give it to Franken. Why take on the role and then keep a low profile? I’d also be cautious about shooting off my guns at the start, but if I had something to offer and no one else was offering it, I’d be outspoken too. Does that surprise anyone? lol

    Did you see the clip of franken drawing the map of the US from memory? If that guy is as good a politician as he is a mapmaker and funny guy, he will do a good job.

    US Senator blocks all Obama nominees amid tanker feud

    A US Senator has taken the extraordinary step of blocking more than 70 of US President Barack Obama’s nominees amid a dispute over a lucrative US Air Force tanker deal, senate aides said Friday.
    Senator Richard Shelby, the top Republican on the Senate Banking Committee, placed a blanket “hold” in part because of the feud pitting Airbus parent EADS and its partner Northrop Grumman against Boeing, his office said.

    “Senator Shelby is holding all of the president?s nominees pending on the Executive Calendar,” a total of “70-plus” people, said a spokeswoman for Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Regan Lachapelle.

    The US Senate frequently approves non-controversial nominees without a formal roll-call vote, with a “unanimous consent” determination that can be blocked by just one senator, requiring a time-consuming process and 60-votes in the 100-seat chamber to overcome.

    Shelby “has placed holds on several pending nominees due to unaddressed national security concerns,” his spokesman, Jonathan Graffeo, said in a statement that cited the tanker dispute as a key reason for the move.

    The European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company and its rival Boeing have been locked in a long-running rivalry to win a 35-billion-dollar contract for a fleet of new aerial refueling tankers.

    The EADS/Northrop partnership would build the airplane in Shelby’s home state of Alabama but have accused the Pentagon of favoring Boeing in a draft request for proposal and warned they may withdraw from the competition.

    “Nearly 10 years after the US Air Force announced plans to replace the aging tanker fleet, we still do not have a transparent and fair acquisition process to move forward,” said Graffeo.

    “The Department of Defense must recognize that the draft Request for Proposal needs to be significantly and substantively changed,” said the spokesman.

    Shelby is also “deeply concerned” that Obama may block the construction of an FBI center in Alabama to test improvised explosive devices — the “roadside bombs” that have killed hundreds of US soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    “This decision impedes the US military, the intelligence community, and federal law enforcement personnel in their missions to exploit and analyze intelligence information critical to fighting terrorism and ensuring American security worldwide,” said Graffeo.

    Hi Rose!

  30. Foxwood says:

    Al Franken? I prefer to call him Richard Smally…

  31. Foxwood says:

    Morning Tellit, SamH!

  32. samhenry says:


    His mapping skills from memory are extraordinary; his ability to open his mouth and roar at inappropriate times to inappropriate people is also extraordinary. I’m not bankin’ on Franken to be around too long.

  33. rosehips says:

    tellit, that vid with Franken was so funny, I had to google it. I honestly never really remember Franken from his SNL days. I really never watched it after high school, before he was on the show.

    here’s a review for the movie “Stuart Saves His Family” (excerpt)

    Stuart Saves His Family
    BY ROGER EBERT / April 12, 1995

    ; It goes a long way toward explaining the problems of Stuart Smalley when you find out that when he was young, his father’s nickname for him was “Waste of Space.” Growing up in Minneapolis, Stuart’s father was an alcoholic, his mother a co-dependent and enabler, his sister a compulsive eater and his brother a budding drug user. Stuart fled as soon as he could to Chicago, where he was soon a member of four 12-step programs.

    Stuart, of course, is the continuing character on “Saturday Night Live” who hosts his own cable show aimed as 12-steppers and shares pearls of wisdom such as, “It is easier to put on slippers than to carpet the entire world.” His own life is lived in a constant whirl of meetings, chats with sponsors, making amends and wondering how to Do the Next Right Thing. He also has a big problem with Taking Other People’s Inventory, especially in his job as a waiter, where he gives the customers advice about smoking, drinking and eating that they desperately do not want to hear.
