CNN: Ya know those Tea Party Freshman are gunna be trouuuuuuble

Umm, yeah. That’s the idea. Washington, my friends, will never be the same. I like it … a lot.

The famous quote takes place at the end of a back and forth between Wolf and Gloria Borger on CNN, describing what may happen in Washington after inexperienced Tea Party candidates gain power. Gloria laments that not only are these folks not beholding to the power elite. They actually ran against them. Oh the humanity. She sounds a bit scared. I’m not. Are you?


Trouble. Trouble, trouble, trouble.

    Bring it on!


    If trouble means smaller, less expensive government and adherence to the Constitution, then so be it!


    If trouble means returning America to greatness, then so be it.


    If trouble means that we don't slide further into the quagmire of the socialist "utopia" that the lefties dream of (and from which Europe is trying to extricate itself), then so be it.


    The "experience" that hurt the most is the radical liberal socialist agenda that the Democrats themselves are afraid to run on.  That experience is bad, and we haven't even seen the worst of it yet.  We have had enough, as one very green president once said.

    Dims – so true – The nit wits refuse to recognize that Congress has an historically low approval rating as it is now completely apparent that we are sliding into the socialist abyss. 

    The elephant in the closet is cash flow. Both sides of the aisle are addicted to it and the methadone clinic is coming to town. No wonder they are wringing their hands in terror.

    Gloria,  now you are getting the right idea.  the incoming freshmen SHOULD be beholden to the T.E.A. Party (a.k.a. common sense Americans).  Then they won't be focused on party politics and brown nosing political fossils and big money.

    Wolf – Hey, don't worry about the junior folks not having clout and influence.  They at least have a  clean slate for credibility. The current gang has squandered all of those qualities.  They have made themselves irrelevant.

    The status quo is changing in favor of the American people. And if the vote doesn't do it, then the past successes shall empower us to press on and succeed.

    Did she say freshmen Senators and Congressmen wouldn’t have the experience or the clout to get things done? Maybe she’s right! The next thing you know our economy will be down in the sewer with no solution in sight, and that could possibly cause record levels of unemployment. Do these two highly paid journalists realize what they are saying? Neither one of them said anything that wasn’t unbelievably stupid, so it’s easy to figure out exactly who their program is targeting.
