Tea Party members have made no secret that they want Barack Obama to be a one-term president. They've stalled legislation and held the nation's economy hostage in an attempt to bring down a guy who may not be the best prez ever, but is the one voters placed in his seat.
Recently, the U.S. lost her AAA credit rating, and this does have an impact on everyday Americans in more ways than one can imagine. The Dow Jones took a plunge so huge yesterday that it was even felt on the Toronto Stock Exchange, instilling a sense of uneasiness in many middle-class folks with private retirement plans and mutual funds.
The downgrade has been given the moniker, The Tea Party Downgrade, and one would think this would bother the usually-disgruntled band of kazoos, but in this case they're overjoyed. Utah Republican Jason Chaffetz is among them, proudly squealing "We weren't kidding around either. We would have taken it down.". It in this instance refers to something affecting the nation's global economic standing and her sense of financial pride.
This is a Tea Party Express event in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin, a state so polarized by these malcontents that their government was at a standstill for what seemed like an eternity. Florida talk show host Andrea Shea King to discuss the credit rating downgrade and how it's been blamed on the Tea Party. Instead of this bothering the small crowd, they cheered.
This is not a faction of patriots, but parasites.
