When you think of Tea Party members you think of...

Quick poll to see what you guys think of people who identify themselves as members or supporters of the Tea Party.

I forgot to make this poll public, but consider it public because when I get a chance I'll likely change the setting in the db to do so.

OK poll is now officially public.

Whatever happened to compromise and reaching across the aisle? Reagan, Bush I and Clinton were extremely effective at that. Since then, not so much. Obama will always be remembered for saying "elections have consequences". He views an election as an opportunity to nuke the other side into oblivion.

Because of that, it's understandable why the Tea Party does what it does. They are infuriated with Obama and they've decided to get down in the mud with him. Unfortunately, the American people suffer when extremists ON EITHER SIDE get enough power to push their agenda down the throats of everybody else. That's why I've always been a proponent of government gridlock: they are too many ****ing idiots on both sides of the fence.

That's why I was such a strong Romney supporter. He would have reached across the aisle. He proved that when was Governor of Massachusetts. Unfortunately, in order to win the Republican also nomination, he had to pretend to be a hard-core right-wing conservative, and that scared off too many people and played right into the hands of the Obama campaign. As long as the tea party wields this much power, the Republican party will never win another Presidential election.
Romney was a moderate who was somehow too much of one side yet not enough of neither...

Either go conservative, and espouse family values...


Or let's go full-on liberal with open sexual intercourse on every street corner in America, AIDS for everyone and some black-on-black violence in every neighborhood...and call it 'diversity.'

We don't have a formal process for joining. We're really just people who agree that government has gotten too big and intrusive. I've been in the tea party since before there was a tea party.

The original neocons were a handful of Jewish intellectuals who left the democrat party primarily because of their hawkishness on the cold war when the democrats nominated George McGovern for POTUS. Reagan shared their foreign policy views. Other than that, you're both right.

I think he does fail to understand how Reagan's communication ability would have played with tea partiers.

But at the same time, I think you fail to understand some things too. Reagan wasn't as impeccably conservative as California governor as you might think. He was pragmatic, much like Romney in Massachusetts. The biggest difference in this regard is that 2000-era MA was a more liberal environment than 1970-era CA.

Romney ran as a conservative just as much as Reagan did, not a quasi conservative. The biggest difference is that Reagan was running when most GOP candidates were pretty moderate (Dole, GHWBush, John Anderson, Howard Baker, etc.) while Romney was running against a lot of people who had various claims to conservatism (Santorum, Huckabee, Perry, Gingrich, Bachmann, etc). Reagan also benefitted from the fact that he'd been campaigning as a conservative longer than Romney was.

The other major difference between Romney and Reagan is that Reagan got a lot of benefit from the reflected purity of Barry Goldwater due to the speech he gave at the 1964 GOP convention. Meanwhile, Romney is tarnished in the eyes of conservatives by the reflected liberalism of his father, George Romney.

Yeah, Reagan was just a bumbling fool who couldn't fall down without landing on a winning lottery ticket. Meanwhile, Obama is super smart and good at everything except that he has terrible luck. Right.
