I don't know many teabaggers who agree with Bush's spending or even think he was a good President, but still, he was a Republican. Most of the teabaggers are also Republican, so, I would say its just good ol' fashion partisanship. Even though they may not have liked Bush, he's still better than probably anybody on the left; the teabaggers were validated by Obama's ridiculous spending, far and above even that of Bush. It was bad when Bush resided as President, now it's even worse.

Still, the teabaggers should have voiced their disgust with Bush in the same way they do now. Partisanship is silly.

Was not the TEA party movement started in part to protest the bailouts first signed by Bush? Yeah, they've protested damn near everything that Obama has proposed, but if you recall, many conservatives were against bailing out the banks.

Wow. Talk about missing the big picture...

Government spending and the deficit were out of control under Bush and now it's flat out sickening.

Is that not something we can all agree on?

Out of control why, because Obama is black? You racist.

Do you have any ironclad links to that? Something like a picture of a "teabagger" with a racist sign and proof that the person is really a liberal?

I believe it but I'd love to have that kind of ammo bookmarked.

Seriously though. The government spending and debt is absolutely at a point where it is out of control and may be unsustainable. That is scary.

Is Bush partly to blame. I believe he is. But blaming Bush does not validate what Obama is doing.

What if you're a racist who is against the Tea Party because they are too inclusive?

Does that mean since they are racist, and you are against them, you are now not-racist?

So would a Klan member who hates the Tea Party march in solidarity with the Black Panthers in protest agains the Racist Tea Party movement?

I'm confused.

But really, what this is, is a way to say "The Silent Majority" are really just Racists. Meaning, the overwhelming amount of White Men, and most White Women are really just Racists. Nothing to do with the very liberal social engineering policies flowing out of the Federal Government, the higher taxes being proposed, the higher costs of Health Care as Proven now by the release now by Obama's HHS Department that shows yes, it will cost more. The Bail Outs of Banks that tea party members said not to bail out, yet were told they were "too big to fail" and who's on Capital Hill right now defending themselves? Goldman Sachs, Really? You mean they were bad too? And bailing out General Motors, then causing a huge systematic attack against a rival Toyota, and ignoring GM's Gigantic Recall for engines catching fire. Ominibus, Tarp, Stimulus and a 3.5 Trillion Dollar Yearly! Deficit. Yeah, it has nothing to do with any of that.

The Silent Majority is just a bunch of Racist White People.
