It Begins… Politico Calls Tea Party “Full-Blown Terrorists”

The democrats have added over One Trillion Dollars to the Federal Budget in the last 4 years.

That’s at least a 30% increase in federal spending in just 3 years.

Obama tripled the deficit his first year in office with the failed Obama-Pelosi stimulus plan.
In Obama’s second year the deficit topped a trillion dollars again.
It was unprecedented.

This year the Obama deficit may reach $1.29 trillion. (The Captain’s Comments)

But because conservatives want to cut spendig they’ve gone from being called “hostage takers” to “full blown terrorists.”
The Politico reported:

It has become commonplace to call the tea party faction in the House “hostage takers.” But they have now become full-blown terrorists.

They have joined the villains of American history who have been sufficiently craven to inflict massive harm on innocent victims to achieve their political goals. A strong America has always stood firm in the face of terrorism. That tradition is in jeopardy, as Congress and President Barack Obama careen toward an uncertain outcome in the tea party- manufactured debt crisis.

As we stumble closer to Aug. 2, it has become clear that many in the tea party are willing to inflict massive harm on the American people to obtain their political objective of a severely shrunken federal government. Their persistence in rejecting compromise, even as the economic effects of the phony crisis they have created mount, has taken their radicalism beyond tough negotiating, beyond even hostage-taking.

    The real terrorists are unionistas and the Marxist puke that leads them!

    This is about the future of AMERICANS, not democrats!

  • Oh Noes!

    Screw Politco… Damn Commie / hand puppet of Geroge Soros and the White House. I hope the Tea Party becomes even stronger and by 2012 we will show them the real TRUTH!

    Obviously, the chowderheads that write for politico have no shame and no conscience.

    No biggie Liberals love terrorists.

    I say screw them Liberals are lying bastages, scum sucking clustefu*cks and lowlife classless thieves.

    If being a terrorists means smaller government waste, less interference, lower taxes, less spending and a balanced BUDGET not a balanced approach then call me a friggin terroist you traiorous bastages.

    Lets put it to the people and see who the traitors are.

    I predict that this whole Debt Showdown will end up being a bump in the road, to 2012.

    I belive the Debt Showdown will pass…the Credit Rating…and Stock Markets..and Fed..and World Bankers will do whatever the Hell they do…

    …and the Tea Party and Conservatives will take the Senate and the Oval Office in 2012.

    Obama and his team are “PLOTTING” right now….the Dems are good at plotting….all of those backroom deals at Christmas, ramming ObamaCare down our throats, gave them alot of practice. But it doesn’t matter.

    Let’s see Obama “Plot” his way out of losing in 2012. He will be a one-term President, like Michelle Bachmann has been saying all along. Obama and his team will not be able to plot their way out of this one.

    No matter how this Debt Showdown end up….the sky won’t fall, and the Tea Party isn’t going away…they will only get stronger…

    …and we will either cut up the credit cards now…or later.

    Either way….2012 is coming.

    I think the Dems see the writing on the wall, and know they can’t hold the Senate and the Oval Office in 2012, after all this Destruction….this is their last gasp and struggle to retain power….and either way…it’s over for them.

    The Liberal Media and the Dems will continue to fearmonger Granny…and the Stock Markets, and Fed, and World Bankers will do whatever they do….and We can’t control them.

    What we can control is whether we decide to cut up the credit cards now, or later…

    …and we can control if we Vote and take control of the Senate and the Oval Office in 2012.

    Up next…taking Control of the Senate and the Oval Office in 2012.

    Our Republic will survive the Destruction of Obama and the Democrats…thanks to the Tea Party.

    Don’t be surprised if a state of martial law is imposed by B. Hussein Orwell in the next week to crack down on looming MASSIVE TEA Party protests to follow his acts of treason.

    It has always been his only “plan” from day damn one!

  • Cee

    American citizens have the right to free speech. To attempt to demean and demonize legitimate, legal dissent does nothing but incite more discord. Even those who disagree with a group’s or individual’s stand on an issue must respect its right to exist. A legitimate media outlet would objectively present all sides of the issue and let Americans decide who and what to believe.

  • MrGoodWench

    Did anyone happen to catch today’s MorningHo show ?
    ( I was kindda sleepy eyed and groggy, but I could hear some part of it )
    So I heard someone from White House say that conservatives have suicide belts on , and ready to blow up at Times Square .
    Yep, he actually called us suicide bombers, not compared us to suicide bombers but actually called us that.

    It only took two days to evolve from a”hobbit, “hostage takers”and “terrorist “,fromThe Politico via its lunatic rantings.Please keep your gibberish flowing Politco,as it will only galvinize most Americans who pay taxes and desire limited government.Moreover,your quaint idea of compromise is for all the Tea Party People to drop dead,is not going to happen.

  • RedBeard

    Matt Mahurin, the contributor of that ridiculous screed, needs to check himself into the Happy Hill Home for the Very, Very Confused for a nice long rest.

    “Severely shrunken…” Good grief. What a delusional conclusion to draw from an effort to simply get government to stop spending money it does not have.

    Of course, we know that leftists consider massive increases in the size of government to be the norm, or baseline, and additional taxes to pay for it all are just incidentals. To them, any reduction in the rate of growth is a “severe cut.”

    If Matt ever gets in a bind with credit card debt, I’m sure his simple solution is to call up the card company and just demand that his credit limit be increased. That should work just fine, and will avoid the need for him to adopt a “severely shrunken” program of personal spending.

    Wheeee! Raise the debt limit! Then raise it again! Let the good times roll! Tomorrow may never come!

  • Speaking Clearly

    The only reason the Politicians in Washington are even having a showdown, to cut up the credit cards, is because of The Tea Party.

    Make no mistake. This showdown will pass….We will either cut up the credit cards NOW OR LATER…We can’t control the Stock Markets or Credit Ratings…or Fed….or the Dem and Liberal Media fearmongering Granny.

    …The Tea Party will grow in power….and we will take the Senate and Oval Office in 2012.

    What we are witnessing is NOT the last gasp of the Tea Party….

    …We are witnessing IS the last gasp of the Progressives, and Obama…and the Democrats.

    Obama will not be able to “Plot” his way out of being a one term President…there has been too much Destruction for America to vote for 4 more years of this Nightmare.

  • Mikey

    Think about this one: When names start being called you know you are LOSING. It’s all they hae left (no pun). The Politico, Kos, Media Matters extreme far left- can we call them what they really are America Haters, are flailing. What you see is much gnashing of the teeth. They are in their final throes of liberalism and they know it. Name calling is all they have left to offer. By them calling us those things, do you think it really matters to most Americans? I say NO. Americans who are not involved or follow politics as closely as most of us here do, understand what is happening. So politics aside, things are NOT improving economically. There are no jobs. All they see is the president lecturing them about sacrifice, as they watch him take endless vacations, golf outings, parties, etc. Believe me, he is losing supporters on a daily basis.

    Everyday Americans know the truth. Obama is One and Done. He cannot climb out of this hole by next November. In fact, the pain is going to get worse. So let the left call their little names to their opponents. The only ones that are looking bad are the name callers.

    Rick Perry 2012.

  • Redwine

    This is a concerted, coordinated attack – to label the Tea Party, in particular, as terrorists. Rush played a back-to-back collection of these attacks with the same “terrorist” talking point. It’s getting dangerous. I suspect Soros behind the trigger.

  • tommy mc donnell

    i have never seen americian citizen so vilified for having a political opinion as the tea party. maybe the liberals and the politicans can answer the positions held by the tea party so the have to resort to vilification.
    hobbits ect.ect.

  • Speaking Clearly

    The naysayers are saying that the Tea Party will self destruct…

    …the Stock Market will Crash…

    …America will reelect Barack Obama, so that he can raise Taxes…and Destroy the Economy for 4 more years. They are delusional.

    Does anyone really believe America will vote for 4 more years of this Destruction and Nightmare????

    I’m glad we have the Tea Party.

  • Nelle

    I’d know if I were a terrorist. The left would stop calling me that, and start appeasing me.

  • Gimme a Break

    Pure BS right from Alinsky’s Commie playbook. Politifool has stooped to a new low in calling a grassroots movement made up of ordinary American citizens “villains” and “terrorists.” And anyone who thinks the tea party is responsible for the debt crisis is retarded.

  • Atlas Shrugged

    So much for the polite discourse …

  • theBuckWheat

    Leftists (er, now “progressives”, what tomorrow?) prefer hyperbole to the truth, which is oh so restrictive. Once they have launched into hyperspace, many liberals are more than happy to join their own hype there.

  • We probably do strike terror in their little communist hearts.

  • L.E. Liesner

    Politico like all liberal organizations not only have a mental problem but they can’t see the truth. The “real full blown terrorist” are in the so called government that is supposed run this country. The Constitution is written in a language that the most common of people can read and understand, that is if they can read, not what these clowns think it says. These are the one’s that have put this country in the position it is in today. The Tea Party has nothing to do with this debacle these politicians have created.

  • Atlas Shrugged

    The only people afraid of the Tea Party are the people who are busy fleecing this country. They SHOULD be afraid. Very afraid …

  • retire05

    The GDP is now at 1.3. What does that tell you?

    We are going to lose our credit rating, and perhaps we should since our Congress has been abusing that credit card for decades. But Great Britain is also about to have their credit rating downgraded, even though they have made more budget cuts than we are proposing.

    So what do you want? You want McCain, who calls TEA Partiers hobbits, and who seems to think that freshman Congressman have no clue how things work on the Hill (they do and that is the problem) or do you want to finally kick out the “established” go along to git along Republican like McCain. If you want those like Tim Scott, Marco Rubio, and some others who have been there before like Louis Gohmert, Jeb Hensarling, Jason Chavitz, and others who understand you can’t spend your way to prosperity, get in the game and help them.

    Now, the objective is to make the Tea Partiers run and hide using the “terrorist” card.

    Wonder when they run out of “cards” to play?

    Politico? Bias? Say it ain’t so.

    I never go deliberately to Politico but manage to read enough through links. If you check back through the Bushbashing, you will find their fine hand up to the ole elbow. Being shocked at Politico being a DEM HACK, reminds me of listening to O’Reilly and Dianne Sawyer talking about how some of the news is bias. She assured him that she just gave the news straight. They agreed to meet again and discuss any bias they identified.

    Dianne is Shep Smith. When you watch this stuff, it makes you want to roll around on the floor and giggle.

    Obama is manipulating this whole situation using the Alinsky method of attack, separate, attack, and manipulate through fear mongering. I think he is actually orchestrating this whole thing to take it to the point where he “will have to take charge since both chambers of Congress cannot do their assigned tasks and duties.” He is just sitting back and watching everyone go at each others throats so he can declare he has to step forward and via executive order raise the debt ceiling.
    Am I the only one who sees this? Don’t think so. Just wish the Republicans, each and every one of them, would come out and call him on it.

  • Rock

    Truly an exercise of hypocrisy WTF tries to tell the nation the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, and the Taliban are not Americas enemy and the media is more than happy to carry the water for him. Then WTF needs to demonize people who do not accept his vision of Americas future, and then the stupid SOB’s in an attempt to scare the public equate the Tea Party with the very same group. This is going to get very ugly very quick.

  • Bill Mitchell

    The scary part for Democrats in the Republicans lousy Congressional ratings is that those disapproving are made up of two camps: Liberal Democrats who you can pretty much expect will disapprove just because they are Liberal Democrats and Republicans who are angry at Republican Leadership for NOT BEING CONSERVATIVE ENOUGH.

    The only reason Republicans rank lower than Democrats is because Republicans have higher standards and are less likely to approve of their leaders simply because they are Republican.

    I think at 40% Obama has reached the tipping point – the point at which his own party sees him as a liability and starts to distance themselves from him in their hearts and minds. Why that is important is that it saps their INTENSITY and elections are won and lost on intensity. It will take some sort of miracle between now and 2012 for Obama to turn out independents, young people and blacks in the numbers he did in 2008. And remember, a 3.5 point swing the other way and Obama doesn’t even beat McCain (worst candidate ever).

    it is clear that until Obama is gone, businesses will continue to hoard cash and not hire. he is the uncertainty principle here. Until he is gone from office, things will not improve to any degree.

    I personally thank God for Barack Obama. Without him, the Republican party would never have rediscovered its soul.

    Not to worry people. Although it has been around for over 100 years, Marxism has never taken hold anywhere and flourished. They literally have to build walls around Marxist nations to keep the people in.

    So, if Marxism has never succeeded in over 100 years, the chances are it never will. Yeah it makes a lot of noise and causes a lot of destruction, but it doesn’t win. We will win this people.

    One of the people on “The Five” just commented that the Tea Party has taken the place of George Bush as the libtard’s target now. What the libtards don’t understand is that the Tea Party movement isn’t so much a group: it is just a bunch of people fed up with big government and its dictates. The majority of tea party people are for small government and accountability from our elected leaders. They can target us as a group, but we still vote as individuals.
