    OBJECTIVE reality
    ...even John Boehner and News Gingrich are way too far to the left for them.

    I never thought I'd see the day when I started a thread defending those two, but check this out.


    Is that how far the tea party has gone? Guys on their own side are truthful with them and/or take a couple of moderate-right positions, and they go bonkers?

    For the record, I don't know that Boehner is right about the budget. Of course it won't get back under control overnight, but it sounds like his estimates are predicated on the false assumption that we can get away without raising anybody's taxes.

    Anyway, this is a sad commentary on the condition of American politics. God help us if we don't start de-electing these fanatics.

    50 years? Wow, that's the first time I've heard a politician tell the truth about our mess. These naive tea party idiots think we can fix our budget by just slashing spending and in a few years, poof, we'll be all 1950s again.

    Now, let's get started on that 50 year road and rebuild this damn country.

    As for Newt, man, his own ate him alive today. Further proof that any dissension on the ranks of the Republican party disqualifies you from participating.

    You forgot the lower taxes.

    All the tea party nut cases are doing is allowing the dems to get away with more crap because they are a hell of a lot better than the dems.
