REWIND – Scott Brown: “Shame on Chuck”

Prior to January 19, 2010

The tone has changed a bit since the 19th election, but it’s kinda fun to look back at the ridicule the tea parties have suffered.

First, is Scott Brown’s response to Chuck Schumer calling him a “far right teabagger Republican.”:

Below, watch Rachel Maddow and Ana Marie Cox mock “teabaggers” prior to the Tax Day April, 2009 protest.  Notice the smirk on her face.  She is so cute, huh?

Odd, when you type in the word on you tube, all that comes up are these videos disparaging and making fun of the tea parties.  Now, I know there are many, many videos out there in favor of them, so the search mechanism seems very fixed.  Definitely trying to control the perception.  But then it is to be expected from You Tube/Google. See Google Goes to Washington

Oh, well, watch those election results, beginning with JANUARY 19th Massachuetts.  🙂

Tom Friedman is just saying “he doesn’t sense a positive agenda”  from the tea bag movement.  Notice:  The positive agenda is to change Washington, D. C., by use of the ballot box, seat by seat.  That is the agenda.

One to watch: Crist/Rubio in Florida.

“The Republican primary in Florida, which pits Governor Charlie Crist against Marco Rubio, is being watched carefully as a harbinger for the impact the Tea Party may have on the midterm elections.”

Brand new poll today:  showing 47 Rubio/44 Crist.

This is the seat vacated by the resignation of Mel Martinez.

Crist appointed George Lemieux to basically hold the seat for him.

“Lemieux, 40, was Crists’ closest and most loyal adviser and political guru. Lemieux ran Crist’s 2006 campaign for governor — earning the nickname “maestro” from the governor — and later served as his chief of staff. Before that, LeMieux was Florida’s deputy attorney general under Crist from 2003-2007.”  From Orlando Sentinel

    Ree, I think if the teaparty movement were clearly defined by overpaid, egotistical, opinionated, “reporters” they might report it is a group of homogenized AMERICANS. all ages, races, creeds, who all believe & embrace INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS over any GROUPS’ “rights”………INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS don’t need much legislating now do they & when all persons rights are recognized WE ARE ALL PRETTY MUCH EQUAL THEN TOO, NOW AREN’T WE?

  3. MsM,

    Since the Scott Brown win I have not heard the phrase “Teabagger” being used. It’s not because those same Reporters weren’t relishing using it as an epithet for Average everyday Americans. Their Corporate Masters called them off because of the Scott Brown win?

    I think tonight’s State of the Union Speech will have a strong Clintonian flavor.

    It’s NYT week at You Have To Be This Tall To Go On This Ride.

    Why does Maureen Dowd compare our President to Mr Spock?

    The State of the Union “Rescue, Restore, Rebuild. Mr Spock makes his move.

    “When the men on the chessboard
    Get up and tell you where to go”

    well, I have stated many times that the “media” is CORPORATE OWNED & that their talking heads are basically chattel…….I believe they are pretty much told what to “report” & HOW to “report” it…….if the term “teabagger” is not being used, I believe that is for DAMAGE CONTROL…………we have have been treated like children for many years now & I guess many kids are growing up & questioning authority………..Coulter stated on some show the other night the teaparty movement was basically conservatives but didn’t expand the observation……..

    wasn’t Spock without emotion? or maybe its the ears? don’t know what Dowd’s observations mean but I won’t lose any sleep over it…….LOL LOL LOL

    The president of the United States reprimanding the Supreme Court in a SOTU address with them sitting there is just beyond belief. What an arrogant son of a gun he is. I didn’t see any recognition at all of his first year failure on every point. And if he moved to the center one little bit I did not see it.

    My husband pointed out we don’t hear Global Warming anymore either, we hear Climate Change….that was intentional because of the Global Warming Hoax. Climate Change, well duh the Earth has a climate, and it’s been changing ever since. My husband said, that is their way of not being called on the AWG Hoax. Last night the President said, he was going to “Fight Climate Change” How? How does one fight mother nature and make her stop changing the climate LOL!

    There was somewhere around 100 I’s, but maybe that’s not too bad for 72 minutes, I don’t know. I have felt it all along and it has not changed, he is on the outside looking in at us and he is disgusted by what he sees. He just can’t seem to get this nasty democracy out of the way so he can fix us all. If not fix us, at least lock us up somewhere so he can shut us up and he can get on with his master plan. Or maybe I should say he is looking down at us from somewhere in the air and he talks to us like we are not only children but retarded children. But it is beyond defiant to take on the Supreme Court. That is sick.

    Only Obama could set up something that would get the MSM mouthing off at the Supreme Court – in order to defend him. He is the Master Divider of All Time.

    I don’t care how much you disagree with the decisions, and there have been plenty of times I disagree, it is totally inappropriate for the president to do what he has done. In effect, he is tearing down democracy, brick by brick, in every way he can.

    well, Bella, I have always liked challenges & always looked at situations in the least favorable light……on the surface it looks like the one is attempting to tear down democracy, but we need to remember we are a REPUBLIC & that’s INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS….imHO we haven’t had either one in a long time….but that’s a Imustime rehash & I digress……..CITIZENS OF ALL STRIPES ARE WAKING UP, even if it appears on the surface the politicos aren’t……..I say just let him keep running his mouth & waking up more sleeping giants………..only in Oregon, & you can’t make this stuff up……….if you are an individual & make over 125K you’re RICH….yeap Oregon voted for MORE TAXES, guess they really believe their elected officials are doing a great job LOL LOL LOL

    Ree, they really want US to be stupid & they are “entitled” enough to think we really are………after they loose their cushy positions of power & their golden parachutes…….they still won’t get it or what went wrong because I believe that most entitled elitists REFUSE TO ACCEPT ANY RESPONSIBILITY…..it is always somebody else’s fault……….Isn’t it really ironic, they have all the power, the media at their disposal, billions of taxpayer money to throw around, billions in lobbyist contributions, not to mention, back door deals, dare I say kickbacks, graft, paybacks etc etc etc & they still can’t get anything done? In my twisted state I find that HUMOROUS! LOL LOL LOL

    If the democrat party keeps following Obama, he is going to lead them right off the cliff. I think they are in pretty much of a bind and I wonder what they will do. Because he may be safe for another three years, but they are not.

    MsM, when I think back a year ago, there were a lot of uninformed people and so in that respect we are a good deal better off today.

    I am more than a little stunned that the president would take on the Supreme Court and then all the dems stand up and applaud while they have to just sit there. Just awful and he did it on purpose because he prefaced his remark with something about with all respect to the separation of powers. It just seems to gall him – he can’t control the Court and he can’t seem to get congress to do his will, even though he has the cards stacked in his favor. He just stepped way out of line with that little maneuver. He wants to be a ruler rather than a president.
