Morning Joe team debate influence of the tea party: true grit or hostage takers?

Below the fold you’ll just find a nice piece of video as Joe Scarborough and Michael Steele defends the tea party and praise their influence. But John Heilman just can’t stand it and holds to the line that the tea party held America hostage during the debt ceiling talks. It’s more fun than informative, but it gives your pretty good idea of how much the left hates the influence of the non-influential, my little hobbits.

Joe Scarborough starts it all off by goading Mika into joining the tea party but it degenerates from their as as Michael Steele lauds the tea party for standing up to the slings and arrows of being called terrorists and bomb toters and working to bring real hope and change to Washington. At that point John Heilman just loses it. Have fun my little terrorists.


Here’s a question for you. Should the tea party be proud for what they been able to accomplish, not to mention what they been able to withstand from left?

      It is projection: anything they accuse you of doing, they are undoubtedly already doing themselves, and just want to be able to say “look: everyone’s doing it!”.

        And every time I talk with any of my lefty friends I am reminded how efficient a tactic it truly is.

    Sammy they blamed us for it anyways. We always shared in the consequences of zero’s failed policies. Isn’t the plunging market a consequence of his failure to allow adequate?spending reductions. ?When we are downgraded isn’t that from his failed policy of? debt reduction. Isn’t he as President suppose to make sure that these things don’t happen.

    I did not ask for this “compromise”. The Tea Party did. Oh, you wanted more spending reductions?? More will be coming and then what? I hope you made a lot of of money today during the market plunged. The market REALLY loved the deal the Repubs served up.

      Actually, the TEA party did not ask for compromise.? Far from it.?
      The market plunged because, due to resistance from the free spending Democrats and ?bama, they couldn’t cut spending the way that Moodys, S&P et al. have been continually recommending.? Try listening to them.

    And Jim, the little hobbits portfolios took a beating today. And that on top of last week. Someday in the future this may be recouped, but when will that be?

    Did none of the lefties here watch any “news” yesterday?

    The TEA party people hate this deal!?

    ?The point that was being made before the deal by you guys was that the markets were in decline because of the lack of a deal. The hostage taking!.

    ?Well, we got a deal and the market plunged. TEA party fault

    Rain…Tea party

    Drought….Tea party

    I still remember SOS’s wise remarks about the sky not falling and TomL’s sage advice to liquidate (in the past tense) and bottom feed come this last Mon. And Lynn, sure the market will eventually recover.

      Sammy, Market goes up, market goes down. If you sell when market is low, you lose, but if you hold on until it gos up you win. But you don’t count it as a loss until you actually make the sale. Get it

    I’m really getting sick of all the greedy speculators complaining about market losses. If you weren’t always trying to make a buck at the expense of the less fortunate, you wouldn’t have lost your precious money. Your immoral and unwise investing will result in more cost to the government because you’ll pay less of your fair share in taxes. Now back to the original topic, the more Mika talks, the uglier she becomes. For from the fullness of the heart, the mouth speaks.?Luke 45:6.
