Teabaggers think deregulating,"free" market, "free" trade, tax cuts at any cost, trickle down, Reaganomic B.S is the answer, it's more of the same crap that got us into this mess.

The "disaster" started more than 30 years ago when the most corrupt POS president to ever hold office was elected.

Ronald Reagan.

That is why many of us are going to start learning the collecting game. You won. Be happy. SSI, SSDI, disabilities, welfare, housing programs, medicaid, food stamps, and so much more. The world is our oyster. The Fred G.Sanfords and the Old Uncle Joes unite. We will be a force to be reckoned with I tell you.

It just kills me to think we are doomed to another horrible economy like the last 4 years brought us but the idiots who re elected him have assured us of that. The only think I will get out of it is the proof to say I told you so to the obama voters.

Yes it was, a very rough time if you were a small business owner or an employee.

You must be trying to pass off the Limbaughtomy or Rannity version of teabagger revisionist history.

The teabagger god put more people into poverty and food stamps than any president ever.

Tripled the debt.

3 recessions.

Unemployment avg.- 8.5% highest- 11% in 1982

6.2% under Carter

The only people who saw economic growth are the same ones that are now, defense contractors, bankers, pharmaceutical companies and petroleum industry.

The rest?

Went on food stamps.

Let alone his corrupt administration and his blatant senility.

I call for the federal government to label President Obama’s Chess Board a lethal and very deadly weapon; placed in the Smithsonian, incased in tick glass and guarded around the clock by highly trained security forces. The GOP, right-wingers, tea-baggers and especially John Boehner has left at least a pound of flesh on that thing after Obama has beaten them upside the head so many times with it over the last 4 years, LOL!

Check-mate!

We wouldn't be in this shape had Reaganomics not been adopted by all the republicans, neocons,some democrats and now teabaggers.

Just like teabaggers blame the victims instead of the perpetrator.

As teabaggers do the same without their pride and dignity.

They must be tired,they haven't had a break in two weeks.

They had the votes, then they didn't, they had the votes, then they didn't, they had the votes, then they didn't.

112th republican congress,

The most incompetent bunch of idiot teabaggers ever assembled outside of a teabagger rally.

I'm curious if you have ever stood in front of a Tea party patriot and called them a teabagger to their face. I don't believe you ever have for the simple fact you are still alive. I thought you progressive simpletons were the party of acceptance,when actually you are the party of hate, division, close mindedness,and cowards.You hide behind your keyboards and spew your racist hate for the white people you can never be part of. I also thought you tinfoil hat wearing buffoons were the wonderful people of tolerance yet you call people teabaggers. That clearly is a homosexual term practiced by pedophile & faggots!! Get your terminology right HATER.Learn to accept your failures!

Tea Party "patriot"

Must be a bad joke, you people are the worst excuse for a "patriot" EVER.

JAY NORDLINGER of the Nation Review notes,the term "teabagger" was introduced to the political lexicon by Tea Party movement leaders:


The first big day for this movement was Tax Day, April 15. And organizers had a gimmick. They asked people to send a tea bag to the Oval Office. One of the exhortations was “Tea Bag the Fools in D.C.” A protester was spotted with a sign saying,“Tea Bag the Liberal Dems Before They Tea Bag You.” So, conservatives started it: started with this terminology. But others ran with it and ran with it.

Weren't you the dumbshits that mailed teabags to certain members of the government?
Don't they adorn their hats, belts, signs, buttons and purses with teabags.

Learn your terminology history.

I never considered teabaggers as homo's but your description of yourself suits you ,it suits me as well.

Poor homosexual teabagger.
