#1 'Obama Has Underestimated the Frustration in the Country'09-18-2010, 08:14 PM
"The success of the Tea Party candidate Christine O'Donnell does not bode well for the Republicans, nor for the Democrats (even if they see it differently at the moment), nor for the whole American political machine."
"Obama has underestimated the frustration in the country and the power of the Tea Party movement, which gives the prevailing disillusionment a platform and a voice. It is by far the most vibrant political force in America. Obama's left-of-center coalition, which got young people and intellectuals involved and which appealed to a majority of women, blacks and Latinos, has evaporated into nothing."
"The new right, though, is on the rise. It sets the agenda. America is facing a shift to the right. The Republicans have already marched in this direction of their own accord, regardless how many Tea Party reactionaries get a seat and a voice in Congress in November. The Democrats and the president have been put totally on the defensive. From now on they will only be able to react, rather than act.""What this country needs are more unemployed politicians."

We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

What I liked was, no politicians allowed. Just a great bunch of people. Reactionary? I think Patriot fits better, but that's probably what they call a reactionary. Patriot became a dirty word under Clinton, if I recall.
*EDIT* Correction on the above. Politicians could come, but only as citizens. None were invited to speak, if any showed up.
