    Have “Scandals” Sparked A New Tea Party Revival?

    It’s as predictable as Glenn Beck’s tears. As soon as a president appears to be weakened by attack, the media pounces in a feeding frenzy hoping to score a kill. Some do it out of partisan animus. Some do it for personal glory. But either way it’s a bloodcurdling spectacle that contains scant morsels of actual substance.
    In the present festival of feasting, many in the press are asking the same question: Have the scandals plaguing the White House created an opportunity for the whacky Tea Party to mount a revival? Take a look at a selection of the headlines:
    Scandals revive Tea Party, threaten Obamacare – Boston Herald
    Tea Party revival – World Magazine
    Will the IRS scandal revive the Tea Party? – The Week Magazine
    IRS scandal revives tea party – CNN
    IRS scandal: Reinvigorated tea party eager to seize moment – Christian Science Monitor
    Tea Party Looks To Gain Momentum In IRS Scandal Aftermath – Huffington Post
    Back from the dead – WorldNetDaily
    That last one from WorldNetDaily is particularly notable because it presumes that the Tea Party has been dead, which is not something that WorldNetDaily ordinarily admits.
    Like News Corpse

    To answer the burning question of the day, let’s examine how the Tea Party responded to the scandal outbreak. With lightening-fast reflexes, the Tea Party Patriots organized protests across the country to “Rein in the IRS.” And their legions of followers stepped up to speak truth to power. There were 30 of them in Topeka, 70 in Phoenix, 100 in Tampa, 30 in Kansas City, 11 in Tallahassee, 100 in Chicago, 50 in Denver, 6 in Helena, and 50 in San Bernardino where they also spoke H!tleri@n rhetoric to power. In the nation’s second biggest city, Los Angeles, the T- baggeR’s showed up 13 strong.

  • Bobbyv

    Jeff, thanks! I’ll send you some sashimi.

  • Jeff

    >Rudy thanks for the love!!! Happy Memorial Day! Thanks for ALL you Years of Service to our Country!

    Steve, WOW!! you are clearly under paid!

  • Jeff

    Bobbyv- smart @ss!! ;)

    At least I know that memory of yours is in tact!

  • Mike

    Wow – Jeff, do you really believe the dribble you’re spewing? Unbelievable

  • d.d.

    SteveB & Bobbyv

    All 3 of Jeff’s articles from the hatchet site newscorpse , a site with 0 credibility. Their goal is to bash Fox.

  • Jeff

    The IRS selected a bunch of right winger kooks who didn’t want to pay taxes or disclose records to support their political ambitions.

    Sounds like a no brainer….or as we call it in this room “a ratboy” …..its becoming a non-issue, by the day.

  • Jeff

    McCain ripped Ted Cruz and his NeoCon foes a new a-hole!

    Wow! Go Johnnie Go!

  • Jeff

    >All 3 of Jeff’s articles from the hatchet site newscorpse , a site with 0 credibility. Their goal is to bash Fox

    Well d.d. Darling, I do recall a time when they did debunk you.

  • Jeff

    >hi mike,

    Do I have to believe it? It’s a fact, so what’s to “believe”

  • Sicilian Papa

    MSNBC had a 1 day rally. They only lost be 2 touchdowns this time. They have been losing by 4 touchdowns so they had a good day.

    Lerner takes the 5th-nah, nothing to see there.

    Holder lies to Congress says he had nothing to do with Rosen- nah, nothing to see there.

    Rice purposely lies to the country about nature of the attack in Benghazi-Nah, nothing to see there.

    I like you guys on the left but you have to stop polluting your brains with those left wing websites and MSNBC.

    Even your guru John Stewart knows O. and his crew are full of SH#T.

    The truth will set you free!

  • Bobbyv

    Jeff, it’s all that fish…..it’s brain food and unfortunately I need a lot of it.

  • Jeff

    My favorite part of the article. Don’t want you to miss it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think Chriscee & Lbsles, are two of the few that showed up! Bless their hearts! :)

  • mary

    Isn’t it about time for Mrs. Obama to go on vacation again?

    Golly, its been all of three weeks since her last one.

    Maybe ‘Tingles’ from MSNBC can suggest an appropriate location.

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    Jeff

    You rip McCain for being a doddering old fool and then champion him as the man of reason. A little inconsistent.

  • BevAG

    The San Bernardino Tea Party Rein in the IRS had over 200 people there.

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    Jeff

    The rallies for the tea party were small because they did not have a lot of time to plan. They did it off the cuff. The one I went to had at least 3 thousand people but it was planned well in advance. That was a local rally here in Conn.

  • usa8888

    This just in: fox Fake News draws the largest number of 65 nad older audience this year–well over 2/3…and keeps fabricating “scandals” about which only right wing kooks are interested…..

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    d.d.

    Does newscorpse have tax exempt status?

  • Raz

    Jeff Copy and pasted an Article from a webiste . Called News Corpse.

    I’ve seem them, (News Corpse) they have predicted the demise of Fox for years. And yet, here they still are.

    And Jeff….he just a wannabe sock puppet who needs a spin in the wash.
