CNN's Larry King said in a January 17, 2007 interview with the Chicago Sun- Times, " They're a Republican Brand." They're an extension of the Republican Party.

Of course it is. Virginia was the Capitol of the Confederacy, and is where I have lived for the past 30 years since I left the military.

I agree. It's possible they could have been infiltrated. I am giving them the benefit of a doubt.

You are kiiding! You mean the party that has said:
1- "Happy birthday to Elvis Presley" - Michelle Bachmann last August on the anniversary date of his death.
2- "Our Blacks are better than their Blacks" - "Adam's Apple" Ann Coulter when she was defending Herman Cain about the sex scandals.
3- "By the end of my first term as president, I will have a colony on the moon" - A very sober Newt Gingrich
4- "Corporations are people" - Mitt Romney
5- "I don't want to give Black people other people's money" - Rick Santorum on welfare reform. He later said he was saying blah people.
6- "People need a leader, not a reader" - Herman Cain in justifying his ignorance of foreign policy.
7- I am going to take a break because of the many idiotic statements yet to mention but you get the picture.

<quoted text>Surveyors asked respondents in California and a half dozen battle ground states like (Michigan and Ohio) a series of questions that political scientists typically use to measure racial hostility. On each one, Tea Party backers expressed more resentment than the rest of the population, even when controlling for partisanship and idealogy When read the statement that "if Blacks would only try harder, they could do as well as whites," 73 percent of the movement's supporters agreed, while only 33 percent of people who disapproved of the Tea Party agreed. Asked if Blacks should work their way up"without special favors" 88 percent of supporters agreed, compared to 56 of opponets. The study revealed that Tea Party enthusiasts were also more likely to have negative opinions of Latinos and immigrants. These results are bolstered by a recent New York Times CBS News survey finding that White Tea Party supporters were more likely to believe that " the Obama Administration favors Blacks over Whites," and that too much has been made of the problems facing Black people. The survey also showed Tea Party sympathizers are whiter,older, wealthier, and more educated than the average American. Where are the Black Tea Party members? They see racism is why.
I am a white 50 year old male, who I would say shares many tea party beliefs.

I don't care what sex, religion, race, how much money you have or earn. Your actions as a person are what define you as a person to me.

So I always like meeting new people; and if your nice we get along perfectly.

If you arn't then I avoid you.

Help me mold society to being a nicer place.

there is no place for racism in this country. Even the green polka dotted people are racist in America.

Helping nice people out in a time of need makes me feel good; and I bet for you too.

let everybody judge others by the actions of the person; and I bet nice people will get plenty of help while those not nice are avoided. Lets just hope they learn from example that nice is better than being avoided.

would you agree?

is this really science?

Don't waste your Ad budget trying for a voting bloc that is only voting for color and keeping the handouts intact. Waste of time and money.

There is a rich demon in the white house now and there not white!!!! While she takes total 10million of taxs payers money for their vacations, and 500 dollar underwear and thousand dollars sun dress and all the while they claim they are for the poor and the working class. Maybe if billion of dollars sent over seas to build mosques for them while the Americans are suffering and money sent to Kenya and telling its our job to support this and give food aid the starving people never receive because of curruption. How about someone speak upto the government about this food not
