Well, gentle people, Freeperville has again descended into "Obummer's a-gonna take mah gunz" territory, which is as boring as it is predictable, so I'm going to look back a bit...
First up, it's - wither tea party?

Norquist: 'Tea Party 2' Backlash if Obama Sends Nation Over Fiscal Cliff
Sunday, December 2, 2012 04:09 PM
Grover Norquist, the founder of Americans for Tax Reform, predicted a tea party backlash that would dwarf the movement’s success in the 2010 midterm elections if President Barack Obama pushes the nation over the “fiscal cliff.
“Tea Party two is going to dwarf tea party one if Obama pushes us off the cliff,” warned Norquist on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”
When asked “Are you over?” by host David Gregory, Norquist responded, “That was last week’s news.”
I have not heard from the so called tea-party since the 2010 election.
did they sit on their laurels for those 2 years?
we won! now we are finished.

Insha’Allah, eh, Grover? For you folks in Rio Linda, that means “God willing” in Arabic. But don’t worry, Grover knows what it means.
The T-Party energy turned out the vote that gave the GOP a second life. The GOP managed to squander this effort and will likely be discarded. What is next?..Comment #19 Removed by Moderator
Unfortunately, a significant number of Tea Party patriots are seniors who receive SS and Medicare. For those folks, taxes may be a secondary concern in all this.
We begin forming a real national conservative party, now:
United States Independent Party -Taxed Enough Already ( USIP-Tea)
The GOP died when they dissed and outed Sarah Palin for being a genuine , honest American. EFF the GOP, we do not need the pricks.

“American companies need to stop exporting American jobs.”
Amen to that! But you’ll never hear al-Norquist or his Club for Growth buddies say that.
To: KeyLargoAnd to the rescue...Super Grover! /sarcasm I havent heard anything out of the "Tea Party" outside of FR in 2 years.
To: teflon9A few more of these clowns and we can kiss conservatism goodby

“Says the ladyparts voter who wouldn’t know conservatism if it bayoneted her in the neck.”Says the christo-jihadi who thinks the dinosaurs died off because they couldn’t fit on the Ark, and who’d pass out from shock if the pastor used wine instead of grape kool-aid at communion.
And how would you keep American companies from exporting American jobs?
Manufacturing ran like rats to 4th world dungheaps LONG before Zero came to power. Manufacturers like setting up shop in countries where they can pay 10 year old kids pennies per hour for sewing sneakers that sell for $100 at Foot Locker, and can dump their sludge in the nearest pond without anyone saying anything.

You are a hate filled jerk and I am asking that you be kicked off of these threads.
You do not belong here.
We have intense, heated debates on FR, and at times I cross the line, for which I am sorry.
You, however, do not seem to know where that line is.
All who agree please ping the Moderator.

To: Las Vegas RonSo the truth is now DU talking points? You weren't at Jonestown back in '78, were you Ron? On second thought, I doubt you were. You'd have drank the kool-aid first thing, and wouldn't be here now keyboarding away. LOL!
Washington Post Column: The character assassination of Hillary Clinton
Washington Post ^ | 01/01/2013 | Kathleen Parker

The new year began not with a cannonball off the “fiscal cliff” but with an outbreak of conspiratorial cynicism.
This time it’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whose fall and concussion, followed by a blood clot between her brain and skull, has prompted an embarrassment of theories. The gist: That woman will do anything to avoid testifying about Benghazi.
Several commentators on the right opined via Twitter and TV, those most deadly hosts for the parasites of rumor and innuendo, that Clinton was faking her concussion to duck out on her appearance before congressional committees investigating the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Libya that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
An independent report published last month placed substantial responsibility for the deaths on the State Department. Not only was security at the Benghazi compound weak, relying heavily on local forces with conflicting loyalties, but requests for additional security apparently were ignored or denied.
The sentiment that Clinton might not wish to testify on the matter is not without reason. It is hard to imagine the agony of knowing that one’s lack of vigilance may have contributed to four deaths. But the attacks on Clinton during her illness, essentially attacks on her character, have been cruel and unfair. What must the world think of us?
Clinton, who fainted as a result of dehydration after a bout of flu, hit her head and suffered a concussion, after which a blood clot was discovered. She had to be hospitalized while blood-thinning medications were administered and monitored.
Although her critics backed off once the clot was reported, initial responses ranged from “She’s faking” to demands for proof of her concussion.One writer demanded her medical records. John Bolton, former ambassador to the United Nations, called Clinton’s affliction a “diplomatic illness”..To: SeekAndFind
“That woman will do anything to avoid testifying about Benghazi.”
That’s because it was all purposely dragged out to be post-election. But that’s something you media whores always skip over: The facts.
You are not “journalists”. You are slobbering, agenda-driven, propaganda-selling, useful idiots for a new Politburo...
I think Ms. Parker is saying that those who said that Hillary was FAKING her illness in order to avoid testifying before Congress about Benghazi are wrong (at best) or have sinister intentions (at worst).
The Post certainly knows a lot about the subject as they practice real character assassination on just about every conservative they ever write about. I find it ironic that the Washington Post is whining about the “character assassination” of one of the people they like. Never mind the fact that she likely is faking to avoid the whole testifying about Benghazi thing.
To: SeekAndFindWhat must the world think of us?
Kathleen Parker, concern troll. Lord knows how the world cursed us for the job done on Michele Bachman or Sarah Palin, right? Right, Kathleen?
If she is really ill, why so many secrets? What exactly are they hiding?
To: SeekAndFindI think Ms. Parker is saying that those who said that Hillary was FAKING her illness
I'm in the LYING ABOUT IT contingent.
HIllarys chronic alcoholism and drug abuse are very real
I didn’t see any protests from the WaPo back in 2008 when Democrat delegates were being stripped away from Hillary and given to Obama.
It is also similar enough to her reluctance to testify about the 900 FBI records, the firing of the travel office personnel, and the cattle futures in her husband’s administration for her critics to see a pattern of behavior. It may not be a exact repeat, but it does rhyme.
what do you mean “world”??? Parker herself took part in the character assassination of Palin...she’s a left wing hypocrite and another “conservative” fraud like david brooks...
To: SeekAndFindBut the attacks on Clinton during her illness, essentially attacks on her character, have been cruel and unfair. What must the world think of us?
As if there wasn't plenty in her past to question her character about.
Better call Kathleen Parker a waaaaambulance.
In 2008 Parker said Hillary was “thoroughly qualified” to be president. This despite Hillary having an almost identical program to Obama’s. Whatever Parker is, she’s no conservative.
Time to interrogate Parker as well. She has no reason to cover up for Clinton unless she was involved.
To: SeekAndFindI agree that the attacks on Mrs Clinton's health issues have been cruel. I have followed the Clinton's since their early days in Arkansas, and hate everything that they are and stand for, but I have been embarrassed disappointed in the post that have been on Free Republic. There is plenty to crucify her for other than her health.
RE: Lawyers have no problem finding doctors everywhere in America who are willing to diagnose fake afflictions on demand to support injury claims.
Hillary’s character aside, do you honestly believe her blood clot is FAKE?
