From the vitriolic hatred, slander of being racists the Tea Party has received from the leftists, I'd say that's a strong indication the leftists fear the strength of The Tea Party and its ability to coalesce. Perhaps the Tea Party needs to destroy The Republican Party who have been too impotent to stand up for what The American People want.

The left doesn't vilify, demonize a person or entity unless they fear its opposition and threat to their agenda. And it's succeeding in being victorious in its agenda.

And the left rants on - "Rant On, Leftists, Rant On"!

Yep, better git'chur popcorn. Wash it down with some TEA, iced.

Dumb answer. Everyone knows there's no objective way to evaluate teacher performance. And which government jobs are you referring to, military, post office, police?? Should police be evaluated on how many tickets they issue, mailmen on how many letters they deliver, soldiers on how many Taliban they kill????
Soldiers and police are evaluated.

What do you mean "sadly" you've had an education that according to your own words provided you with the tools necessary to be "successful". Reread your entire post, it makes no sense.
I'm also successful and went through the public school system. I've never blamed others for my problems and I never let my children do it either. There are many variables that determine what a student learns, a teacher is only one of them.
Only losers need excuses. This site is full of right wing losers like you that blame everything and everybody for their miserable lives.
This site is full of Left Wing losers like you that blame everything and everybody for their miserable lives.

You just did it again. You have left your kids defenseless.

What kind of f*cking idiot watches Bush & the Republicans create the worst recession ion 80 years, a housing collapse, a near financial melt down, two quagmire wars & double the debt (after starting with a balanced budget) and then has the gall to blame Obama.

You people are just dumber than sh*t.

Not only is your statement false, it's ignorant. History shows Democrats have started more, most of, the wars. Not the Republicans or the Tea Party. Did you skip American History Class?

Toe tapping tu-tu wearing trolls in The Baraq Administration are the reason gay marriage is at the forefront of priority. Because Baraq is a Homo himself. Perhaps ...

Population (2010) 757,917

??? What does that have to do with anything except prove my point that 65,000 votes out of a population of 757,917 is very, very small. Especially given the fact that the democrats, in a district that is 43 percent registered democrat, didn't even bother to field a candidate.

"With votes counted in 99 percent of the precincts, 64,418 votes were cast, roughly a 37 percent increase over two years ago. Despite that, Cantor polled fewer votes than he did in 2012 — 28,631 this time, compared with 37,369 then." (Hamptonroads)

Teachers are evaluated on a continual basis by the administration. It is part of the function of the school's principal.

To tie evaluation to things like test scores alone is just plain stupid.

1. The most important facet of education quality is the quality of the teacher. Accordingly, bad teachers usually mean bad education quality.
2. Tenure makes it harder (actually near impossible) to fire bad teachers, by protecting them from termination based on seniority or other factors unrelated to performance/merit.
3. Therefore, tenure has an adverse affect on the qualify of education.
"Teacher tenure, which is sometimes called career status, provides job security for teachers who have successfully completed a probationary period. The purpose is to protect outstanding teachers from being fired for non-educational issues including personal beliefs, personality conflicts with administrators or school board members, etc."

"Tenured teachers are entitled to due process when they are threatened with dismissal or nonrenewal of contract. This process is exceedingly tedious for administrators, because just like in a trial case, the administrator must show evidence that the teacher is ineffective and failed to meet district standards, in a hearing before the school board." Do you honestly have a problem with that?

For a group who continually touts the Constitution, you people sure seem eager to do away with due process when it becomes too "tedious, difficult, and expensive". Administrators need to step up to the plate and stop coddling tenured teachers. They should be treated like everyone else when it comes to job performance but doing away with "last hired, first fired" is a scape goat.

Time to choke again on your OWN ignorance-duhmfk.
A couple interesting FACTS-
1.. His campaign budget was tiny compared to Cantor's war chest
In terms of fundraising this contest made David and Goliath look like an even fight. Cantor raised almost $5.5 million during the cycle, more than 25 times the amount of Brat’s shoestring budget of $200,000, a third of which came from small contributions, according to opensecrets.org . In fact, Cantor spent more on steak houses than Brat did in his entire campaign. This divide extended to their respective campaign teams, with Brat eschewing the large and experienced group of staffers used by the incumbent in favor of a skeleton crew and grassroots campaigning.
2. He is a college economics professor - and a very dedicated one at that
Brat gained a Ph.D. in economics at the American University in Washington, D.C., before going on to work as an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College, a liberal arts college north of Richmond, Va.
So dedicated is he to his profession that he canceled a packed schedule of meetings with key conservative activists in May because he had papers to grade.
Hahahaha---Suffer braindead libuhrulTICS and conservative smugs.

I agree.

And now they have a weak and defanged candidate whose so lost he doesn't know what to do next.
