Tea Party Movement Leaders Continue to Bank on Bipartisanism

Amy Munday's picture

The tea party movement leaders are getting the one thing they complain about constantly - money. Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Dick Armey, Andrew Breitbart and Fox News were all outlined in a recent report revealing how this apparently terrible economy is only improving their paychecks.

Perhaps the recent Republican stand-off is another sign the Tea Party movement is trying to keep their argument going, whether for the correct reasons or not. The longer they can keep the bipartisan shouting matches in play, the longer these people are going to make millions of dollars.

Sarah Palin is the face of the Tea Party movement, a woman that was struggling while in office in Alaska, only to quit early and is now a millionaire. How does she downplay her recent financial gain while complaining about today's government? She's made about $12 million dollars in the past year, compared to being in debt in previous years because of none other than political scandal.

Glenn Beck said it best and yet people still revere the blunt republican personality. "I could give a flying crap about the political process," he stated in Yahoo news. "We're an entertainment company." An entertainment company that made around $32 million last year.

The bipartisanism is plaguing our country that is in need of confident leaders that keep their minds open to political reform. Not to say Democrats are angels. Both sides have their scandals, but for a country like a America to constantly focus on the argument rather than the change, is sad.

I am a senior and many of my friends are talking about the Tea Party Movement and we all think that people should be able to join as members and receive a card saying that they are members. How do we go about that? I think you would get many people to join.

I'm not sure you know what the word "bipartisanism" means. In fact, I don't think it's a real word, but if it were, it wouldn't mean what you think it does.

Is this the very best you can do, Amy Munday? Parroting the DNC talking points with absolutely no investigation of your own? Here's a real, live Tea Partier to dispell all of the silly stereotypes. 1. I am NOT a republican. I am a registered democrat with strong Libertarian leanings. 2. I wouldn't follow Sarah Palin into the front door of my own home...but she can be very entertaining. 3. I rarely watch Glenn Beck...Only when channel surfing and stumble upon hiim. He can make some very valid points - often keeping within a Libertarian perspective - but his sophomoric delivery is simply off-putting. 4. I DO watch a great deal of FOX news...news, not the commentary programs of Beck, Hannity et al. 5. Yes, I am white - so is the majority of this nation. 6. Yes, I am older, approaching retirement - the leadership/officers of our local Tea Party are A:LL in their thirties. 7. I am not uneducated - I have a college degree. 8. I am not stupid - I have an I.Q. north of 140 9. Yes, I have guns and know how to use them...I am a Marine Corps Viet Nam combat veteran 10. I have been known to sport a red neck due to my previous occupation - landscape contractor 11. I am NOT toothless, although I do have upper and lower partial plates. Any other preconcieved notions I can dispell you of?

The tea-baggers are just a sad group of old, white, rich, malcontent republicans who hate blacks, asians, hispanics, the middle class and the poor and can't stand the fact that we have a black president. When they howl "take back America!!!" they mean to take it back from the minorities. Luckily the middle class and the poor far outnumber the tea-baggers so they will have little effect in November.

Amy, it's "partisanship", not "Bipartisansim". You're article doesn't make sense, unless we assume you don't like people getting along. But that's ok. Much of the criticism from the left, and from "Mainstream" media isn't making much sense. For example, I had to puzzle out what was wrong with a statement by the associated press that suggested that the Arizona immigration law was bad because it made criminals of illegal aliens. Heaven forbid that someone doing something illegal should be called a criminal. Keep attacking us, Amy. It makes us look good.
