Palin rallies Boston 'tea party'


Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin says tax day should be a reminder that the government works for the people, not the other way around. At a "tea party" rally in Boston, Palin said Obama administration initiatives can only be paid with higher taxes and more debt. (Credit: The Associated Press)

JedG, if your an independent why are you so concerned about somebody else, i.e. the democratic party? They aren't very democratic anyway considering how they dealt with healthcare. How can you rail on us for name calling when you do the same?

Thanks for the confirmation of the facts.

1. The Tea Party has for months called themselves “Tea baggers.”

2. Some time ago they realized that the word had a second meaning.

3. Now they want to make the term “tea bagger” as it relates to them to dissapear.

4. They’re happy to call the Democratic Party by the epithet “the Democrat Party”, and have done so with glee. Even Republican members of Congress fell free to use it on the floors of the House and Senate. And this is acceptable.

5. So, even though there’s no “Democrat Party”, the simple fact that maybe some Democrats have given up trying to correct the Republicans/conservatives and just don’t bother to correct you. Using the epithet for years is OK.

As a lifelong Independent I find it difficult to believe Republicans when they talk about wanting to have an open, bi-partisan dialogue when at the same time call their Democratic counterparts by the epithet, “Democrat Party members.”

You and the Republican/conservative party labeled yourselves “tea baggers.” Now, having found out it has another more negative connotation you want to distance yourself from the label. However, you created the “Democrat Party” as an epithet and that’s OK because your self-label has a sexual connotation where as the label you created for Democrats isn’t.

The general rule is that, “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones or epithets.”

One of the "MAIN" secrets of good men is their burning desire of REAL SOPHISTICATED Women!
Palin, (have mercy) is NOT in that category. she is shameless. Displays inadvertent stupidity, AND, continues to do so. The fine men with whom we associate, are just "TURNED OFF", PERIOD.
Thereafter, it takes them DAYS to recover, after the Palin types come their wak!

She isn't newsworthy (except for the University of California Palingate). The news media that follows her is. There are more valuable stories. This "party" will burn out like a Locofoco is more aptly blanching like the same bag used for the third or fourth cup.

"If you're going to throw out epithets at others with ease, you'd better get a thicker skin."

I see very little resemblance between the sexual insult of "tea baggers" and the epithet, "Democrat party." The tea partiers were not insulting themselves with that name. Most probably didn't really know what it meant until after Cooper said it. By the way, I have heard plenty of Democrats say, "democrat party." It is common bad grammar.

To 3030winnie94:

Mr. Anderson did call members of the tea party, "Teabaggers." However, tea party members were calling themselves "tea baggers" months before Anderson ever spoke the word.

It's interesting that conservatives have been for years calling the Democratic Party by the epithet "Democrat Party." Now when they find that a name they have delighted in calling themselves has a less than pristine connotation they don't like others calling them the same name.

Pleaase note that I haven't called your Tea Party the Tea bag Party. However, since you have a very clear record of calling yourselves "tea baggers" and your actions "tea bagging" I feel it's fair game.

If you're going to throw out epithets at others with ease, you'd better get a thicker skin.

I stand by my earlier comment.


Not too long ago members of the Tea Party decided to call themselves "Teabaggers."

So does that make Palin the consummate "teabagger."

She's in the same category as Limbaugh's "Dittoheads."

Tell you what?

When I see Republican Congress persons start calling the opposition party the Democratic Party and and individuals "members of the Democratic Party" then I'll stop calling tea party members "tea baggers."

For your information there is no Democrat Party, never has been.

I hope you practice what you preach. The first line of the constitution starts with "We the people, In order to form a more perfect union" There is the reason it was written.

Who is equating guns with the constitution? Guns are protected by the constitution. (2nd amendment in case you forgot)
Freedom of religion, speech, press, and assembly are also protected by the constitution. (1st amendment)

What is wrong with CLINGING to our constitutionally protected rights?

Oh, and don't forget that is freedom OF religion, NOT freedom FROM religion.

Oh my, I guess I be a "moron". Palin was a business owner, mayor and governor vs a community organizer. As for Reagan, you don't know your history. Keep in mind the DEMS controlled the congress for 40 years up to '94 and the congress is the one who appropriates money...not the President. Back to Reagan, he INHERITED a terrible mess from that embecile, Jimmy Carter (want to use the idiot word here?), proceeded to cut taxes and we had a DOUBLING OF MONEY INTO THE TREASURY DURING HIS EIGHT YEARS. If your salary doubled in 8 years and you wound up in debt, why? Could it be you spent more than you made? You got it and the DEMS did it...not Reagan. Oh how lunacy reigns among the libs. Go get them Sarah...you have executive experience.

Regardless of what anyone thinks of Obama and the Dems it really troubles me that anyone could possibly think that Palin, the Tea Baggers and the Republicans are the solution. Is your short term memory so bad that you don't remember it was Republican leadership and Republican policies that got us into this mess? As you're calling for tax cuts to create jobs have you forgotten that Bush and the Republicans cut taxes greater than any president in the history of the country and Bush is the only two term president who created NO JOBS. Prior to that Reagan had the largest tax cuts and we ended up with the stock market crash of 1987 and a 3 trillion dollar deficit. Go back further to the last supply side nonsense. At the time the largest tax cuts ever by Coolidge and Hoover gave us the depression. It's easy to say things like cut taxes, get the government off my back etc. but be specific and then think about the repercussions of your actions.

Final thought. Sarah Palin is an idiot. Anyone who thinks she knows what she's talking about and is the "answer" to our problems is a moron.

So far the Obama and Democrat machine have driven America into unsustainable debt with the healthcare ponzi scheme. They have on their plate more to go: cap and tax, VAT, amnesty, fairness (so called) doctrine. They intend to remove our freedoms viz: by reducing our disposable income with increased taxation and fees, eventually controlly what the news media will say or not say by unleashing the left wing voice at the conservative voice expense, increasing their voting block by giving illegals citizenship. For now the Tea party protests are something they can not stop but they intend to eventually silence. Conservatives are the real voice of the majority of Americans whether democrat, independent or republican. If you thought Bush was a Nazi just wait till more of your freedom's are gone as the Nanny state increases its strength through the left wing policies. Count the money in your pocket after the Obama regimes machine has inacted its full blown plan. I hope you enjoy the weakened America we all come to live in. Remember only 53% voted for the guy. Read the full first amendment of the US Constitution and you will find how our freedoms have been undermined. Obama's Chicago politics will get its just due at the ballot box in 2010 and 2012.

Ah yes, more incompetence for all to see. So James10, where is your proof that Tea Party attendees = 47% of people who will pay no federal income tax?

Rather, the 47% figure would suggest an average attendee split from both sides.

You're aware of course, that those 47% do actually pay taxes, it just that they offset paying more $$ through tax cuts and credits (offered over the years by both Dems & Republicans).

So why the hack post suggesting Tea Party attendees don't pay taxes? Really, get better informed and don't go along with the status quo.

Bottomline, the U.S. is on a course of financial self-destruction. Whether you choose to acknowledge it or not, is up to you.

I attended the Tea Party rally today and I think the media needs to point out that there were a fair amount of people at the rally that were not there in support of the Tea Party or Sarah Palin. In addition, I would place the number of attendees closer to 3,000 and maybe a third of that number was Obama supporters.
On a different note I think the rally was a good example of democracy being alive and well in America. This idea that we are living in a fascist country and that Obama is a communist (heard that at rally from one of the speakers) is far from the truth. If this government were a fascist government there would be no Tea Party rally, instead of having the police there to keep us safe, they would have been there arresting people with anti-government signs. I saw none of that.
Let me tell you what I did see, I saw groups of people from both sides of the divide debating each other on policy issues and not calling each other names such as socialist or crazy right-winger. I saw a woman giving a hug to a man that she had just finished debating on health care policy. I saw some of what makes America great. If we really want to move America forward we need to talk to each and listen, not yell and call each other names. We cannot go back to the way things were in the 50’s those days are gone. We should look toward the future and continue the work of making this country into a more perfect union.

Lots of misinformed people here. For instance, Clydet42 who types...

"We all just filed our taxes so we should know whether we paid more or less than in previous years. I'm guessing there was no significant change experienced by 95% of taxpayers."

Let's see if I can add something to that little empty head of yours Clydet42.

We are in DEBT (federal & state); so much so that the US borrows more $$ than it can afford to pay back. Add to that, the economic downturn / high unemployment = fewer people for the gov't to tax in order to pay down that debt.

As if that weren't bad enough, the recent health care bill will add trillions more debt.

How do you suppose the gov't will pay for all of this? Here's where I fill you in on the screret, OK?

Little by little, Gov't will PRY more $$ from ALL our hands by implementing more TAXES / FEES (not necessarily tied to your tax return).

Increases being considered in 2011 include:
Fuel Tax (higher gas prices)
Sin Tax (soda, alcohol-cig tax increase)
Entertainment Tax (downloaded music, etc)
Cell Phone / Cable TV Tax
Personal Care Tax (haircuts / gyms)
Car Rental Tax
License / User Fees (fishing lic., etc)
Property Tax (look for increases here)
Punitive Penalties (CA suggesting a 20% penalty for underestimating your state income tax).

So Clydet42, you see the gov't is going to get that $$ regardless and...from YOU too.

Personally, I'm all TAXED OUT. Couple that with waste, fraud and abuse at all levels of government and I am outraged (as are most citizens of this country).

November can't come soon enough!

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Why would they cover John Edwards? He isn't running around inciting hate in a bunch of intolerant, bigoted, losers is he?

I'm curious though with you Palin lovers, since she is ridiculing the fact that our country has improved greatly since President Obama took over, what would she do? What would be different under her and McCain? What would our country look like now? She said today that she doesn't like change. She wants things to remain the same. So, bascially she is saying she had no problems with our economy being in the tank (how many millions of dollars is she making?) She has no problems with us gaining respect throughout the world. Having two wars stagnating under Republican rule and the Bush regime is fine. The auto industry failing was a wonderful thing. Job losses, the housing market and the failure of Wall Street, according to Sarah Palin were all fine and no change needed to be made. Sarah Palin feels that our country has been doing just fine going back to Jan.20, 09. The "no you don't" is something you people are embracing? How sad that is.

What are the regressive Republicans so afraid of? WHY are they so against change? Without change, there can be no growth. Are they content to remain stunted and crippled because they refuse to grow and evolve with the rest of humanity? Their guns and religion are safe, but it is THEY and their ilk who have perverted our Constitution into a rag that supports torture and allows the rich to ride-rough shod over the rest of us. Does Sarah Palin live in an igloo? No, since she left office she's garnered $12,000,000.00 and counting. She certainly found out what side HER bread is buttered on, hasn't she? When it comes to luxury, now THAT'S a change she, evidently, LOVES. No one cares about her opinion on anything of substance. She is a dangerous, ignorant fool, in my humble opinion, who hasn't a clue as to the damage she is inflicting and has no place in the Public Forum to spread her mendacious and poisonous invective against our Government and President. She has learned nothing from History and seems intent on marching us backward to darker days. When I think of Sarah Palin I think of Benedict Arnold and others who would tear this Country to pieces for their own ill-gotten gain rather than to help rebuild and restore it. I am sick of her and Limbaugh, and Beck and Bachmann and Cheney, ALL millionaires who LOVE the status quo but rather than contribute to the pot, they'd rather just stir it till it boils over, denying they had anything to do with the damage inflicted when if finally does.

98 percent of Americans are getting a tax cut this year thanks to Democratic legislation opposed by every single Republican.

Recent polling shows that most people believe President Obama has either left taxes the same for this past year or actually raised them. The truth could not be more different. The President cut taxes for 98 percent of working people in 2009.

http://www.ctj.org/obamastaxcuts.php


The teabaggers are still upset, of course, since a tax cut for 98 percent of Americans is somehow more evidence of "socialism".

They are distraught that the richest 2 percent aren't getting their taxes cut as well.

So how about 100 percent of the teabaggers send their tax cut to the 2 percent richest Americans who didn't get one?

Sure, Sarah Palin made over $12 million last year, but she didn't get a tax cut! So the teabaggers can helpfully send her their tax cut so that she can accumulate more wealth.

And in Trickle-Down fantasy land, that means more jobs for everyone. Yay!

I am a Rep., and proud of it, but I wouldn't vote for Palin. But what she is doing, which I applaud, is she has figured out that Dems are so meanspirited and without a real cause, all she needs to do is open her mouth, and all the vile from Dem talking heads and followers comes forth, showing their true selves to Independents. And to the extent they think they have any talking points ("you will love the HC bill as soon as someone can explain it to you", etc.), they get so pissed at Palin, they move off point. The woman is a genius and Dems just fall into her trap. And she is making big bucks. Awesome plan and execution.

JJHI,

You're REALLY going to go on about the money Bush and Reagan spent, when Obama has spent more money in 14 months than ALL 43 presidents before him - PUT TOGETHER?!?

What's more, Bush and Reagan may have spent money, no question. But they also cut taxes and eased reguluations so that the economy could grow, meaning more workers to PAY for those expenses, and LESS people on unemployment and welfare.

Obama has spent us into the stratosphere, yet is doing nothing to grow the economy. WHO'S GOING TO PAY FOR ALL THIS? Furthermore, he is extending unemployment benefits, putting a strain on the few people who ARE working and disincentivizing ANYbody to actually look for work (not that there's any to be HAD in Obamanation).

You libs are fools. Attacking Sarah Palin - a private citizen who is harmless. She can't write legislation, she can't levy a tax on you, she can't burden business with regulation, she can't curb your individual rights. Yet your man-child, 5-minute career, cult-like president is doing all of the above and more, and you praise him like he's some sort of savior.

kenpasadena - may I please ask you:

Did you cling to George Bush and the Republicans during their control of the Government for almost eight years? For if you did then you are more stupid than those you have belittled for having clung to Obama for just about one year. And tell me, how can you possibly rate or reach conclusions on Obama after his very short stint in office and after inheriting the worst economy in decades from Bush and the Republicans? And if you hark back to Regan, he was a terrible President too, almost quadrupling the deficit during his term - talk about a big spender.

"So, yeah, the taxpayers of that state are in one way or another helping to pay for it."

I live in that state (California). Believe me when I tell you this: $100,000 for Sarah Palin's speaking fee is by far - - BY FAR - - the least of our worries.

But of course the press will play up the Palin story for days on end, hoping to distract California residents from the REAL problem: Half a TRILLION (that's with a 'T') dollars in the hole for government pensions and payouts that our GRANDchildren will not be able to pay off.

We are broke. We are GREECE on steroids. California is a collapsing ruin of a welfare magnet state that is about to have repercussions throughout the rest of the country and the world, yet everybody is micro-focused on Sarah Palin's speaking fee and her requests.

"Two years after Ronnie was elected his approval rating was 37% (2/1/83)."

Yes, but due to his skillful policies, his repair of the Carter shambles economy and his massive likeability factor, he won a second term in January, 1984, taking 49 STATES. The largest, most decisive landslide in presidential history. It was a BLOODbath.

Your man-boy, five-minute career, full of baloney Obama has NO CHANCE of a second term. 14 months into his presidency and he is on the defensive, has NO accomplishments, and continues to be the most inexperienced, ill-informed person in any room he is in.

Palin is a dimwitted, self serving, simpleton – just like George Bush…so she indeed has a shot at the Presidency! Scary isn’t it?

And if she’s so damn smart, then why doesn’t she put forth her own ideas and options? This besides age old and worn out platitudes such lowering taxes for the rich, which we did and isn’t working; besides calling for less government regulation, which Wall Street and Enron have so plainly shown is absolutely required and lacking; besides chiding Obama for his spending, which was absolutely a must in order to avoid a depression and in order to counter the worst economy in decades created by Bush and the Republicans. How quickly they forget.

Believe me I am not enamored with the Democrats, but compared to the HEARTLESS Republicans at least they think every American is entitled to base standard of living and decent healthcare.

I say we split off Texas and Alaska from the US and send Rush Limbaugh, Glen Back, and others like them there. Let them carry hand guns, let them get rid of all government services, let them impose a church state, let them cut off welfare to children, let them allow corporations to “self-regulate”, etc. And then we’ll see how pleasant a place their ideal conservative world is. You betcha!

I note that the AP story leaves out the part where Palin said President Obama's policies are un-American, harkening back to the Bush-Cheney administration's labeling of anyone who didn't agree with them as un-American, unpatriotic, etc. Also, the AP says this rally harkens back to the American Revolution and taxation without representation - there's nobody at this or any other "Tea Party" rally who's being taxed and is not represented. And where was Palin and this worried-about-spending-and-deficits crowd when Bush and the Republicans in Congress did nothing but spend, spend, spend and borrow, borrow, borrow because they paid for nothing? Not the Afghan war, not the Iraq war, not the 2 big tax buts, not the Medicare prescription bill, nothing. Where were she and they when one of her big heroes, Dick Cheney, said that deficits don't matter? Where were she and they when Bush and the Republican Congress exploded earmarks? She, and they, were exactly where all Republicans always are when they're busy spending and borrowing and not giving a damn about deficits and their children's and grandchildren's future - going along with all of it and then doing their mea culpa about how they were bad, bad, bad and they'll never do it again. But, of course, they do do it again - cut taxes, increase spending, increase borrowing, increase deficits and then when Democrats are in power howl about how spending and deficits need to be cut. Reagan did it, Bush 41 did it, and Bush 43 did it. Don't expect anything different in the future.

Actually, Palin has it wrong. It's election day when we remind our political leaders that we have government by the people. She wouldn't know about that because she quit the most recent position to which she was elected in order to make millions of dollars as a paid speaker and book author.

As for Palin, the quitter, she should read Theodore Roosevelt's "man in the arena" speech.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
