Slander them: Obama: Tea Party features ‘core group’ against him

President Barack Obama says he believes the Tea Party is built around a “core group” of people who question whether he is a U.S. citizen and believe he is a socialist.

You know, I’ve never seen the President come forward with a birth certificate to refute the whole citizenship thing. Seems like an easy fix to me. But, regardless of that question, he’s the President now, so it doesn’t matter one iota.

So, based on this, Democrats think that the Tea Party is comprised of people who are conspiracy folks and who hate the President (probably because he’s black. There, I said it.)

Republicans think that the Tea Party movement is comprised of voters who are sick and tired of the way that the Democrats are running the show, now that they have power, and that those voters will rush to the polls in November to thrust the GOP back to the level of greatness they think they deserve.

They’re both wrong.

The Tea Party is about returning this country to fiscal responsibility (the whole “Spend less than you make” mantra that Dave Ramsey talks about) and to turn our government away from the monstrosity it’s become, with its fingers in every part of your life, and return it to its original framework – one that valued the rights of the individual and the rights of the states over its own power.

True tea party members do not care if they are voting for a Republican, Democrat or a Liberatarian. They are voting based on principle, not party lines. I’m personally represented in Alabama by Democrats and Republicans. Guess what – they all voted against the HCR monstrosity, and I’m proud that they listened to their constituents. God bless’em for it.
