    I found this part to be most amusing. Surely, the author knows she's just asking us to engage in a fruitless waste of our time.

    He's preparing to compromise. Which means finding a happy middle ground between the liberal Republicans and progressive Democrats.

    He's probably afraid that one of the physical conservatives will get physical with him.

    Once again the GOP is selling out the true tea party folks. It's time for the party to split into the party of God and the party of smaller government.

    Hate to burst your bubble of bigotry but many of the Tea Party folks are also very religious. Intergenerational justice and subsidiarity (smaller fed gov) have their roots in Judeo-Christian philosophy. The Tea Party movement wasn't designed to secularize the GOP but to scrutinize people's fiscal views, which are easier and more important to verify than someone's religious claims.

    Actually, the tea party WAS formed to secularize the party. Only much later did the like of Bachmann and Perry claim to be the leaders of the movement.

    DOMA is not smaller government. You cannot say you favor smaller less intrusive government out of one side of your mouth, while the other side says you want the government to enforce your selected moral code.

    That is 100% correct. Bone Head is no way t he Conservative that the liberal media including Fox News wants you to believe he is!
    Look when he first got the job head of the house They had Ron Paul in line for a job that would let him question the Feds just a little bit Bone Head did everything he could to block Paul from getting the appointment.
    Watching the Domocraps and the Repubcraps is no different then watching WWE Wrestling. The election was close because you really have very little difference between Husama and Romney

    Very true what you said. The thing is when the Tea Party took off in 08 it was really a spin off of the Ron Paul Revolution. Soon when you heard anything about the Tea Party even on Fox News the name Ron Paul never came up. The old guard Repubcraps for the most part had killed the true party

    Maybe the idea was started by libertarians, but the bulk of Tea Party-minded voters are either religious or don't object to religious morals. Tea Party politicians, including Rand, pushed a pro-life bill in the House and Senate this year. Militant atheist conservatives make up a fraction of a percent of this country.

    When gay "marriage" is implemented somewhere, religious institutions get increasingly marginalized and eventually shut down rather than violate their principles. The services then get replaced by government-run ones which cost more and increase the size of government. This will get worse when the abortion mandate goes into effect. These socially progressive ideas aren't about fairness, they're about nationalizing adoption and foster care agencies, schools, hospitals, clinics, soup kitchens, etc. and about breaking down the family unit in order to make people more dependent on government.

    You're full of crap. That is NOT why the tea party spun up, and you know it. Please, just because YOU hate religion and faith so much, doesn't mean that anything good HAS to be completely secular. Why do some let their ideological zeal obscure fact and pragmatism?
