Yep they exist.
And our “liberal media” is making them out to be a huge deal…all 4% of them. That is…4% of the tea party supporters, not 4% of Democrats. So 4% of like 30% at best, so we’re talking about less than 1% of total population here…keep that mind.
In an article titled “Disgruntled Democrats join the Tea Party” we learn that;
Some Americans who say they have been sympathetic to Democratic causes in the past — some even voted for Democratic candidates — are angry with President Obama and his party. They say they are now supporting the Tea Party — a movement that champions less government, lower taxes and the defeat of Democrats even though it’s not formally aligned with the Republican Party.
Oh no! Democrats are becoming tea partiers!
To be sure, the number of Democrats in the Tea Party movement is small. A recent CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll shows that while 96 percent of Tea Party activists identify themselves as either Republican or Independent, only 4 percent say they are Democrats
Yep, four percent…four percent of 30% (at best) of the population is worth a front page article on CNN. Yep.
A lawyer and lifelong Democrat, Ducket made her political leanings clear: She said she was a campus community organizer for Democratic Sen. George McGovern’s 1972 presidential campaign, voted for Jimmy Carter and Al Gore, and previously ran for elective office in Colorado as a Democrat.
“I was a card-carrying member of the ACLU, and I probably did inhale in college,” Ducket said.
Ducket, who is now an independent and did not vote for Obama, said the president has “carried things to an extreme.”
Yep, you heard right. A woman who was a community organizer for GEORGE FREAKIN’ MCGOVERN and voted for Carter and Gore thinks OBAMA is extreme!
Wait it gets better. Try reading this without giggling or rolling your eyes;
“I think we’ve gone too far on the side of government doing too much,” Ducket said. “The Democratic Party is wanting to take care of everyone, instead of helping everybody stand on their own two feet.”
She doesn’t want the government to “take care” of people, she wants them to HELP them stand on their own two feet. WHAT’S THE M***********G DIFFERENCE?!?!?!?!?!?!?! What is “taking care of” versus “helping?” What does this crazy broad want!?!
Then there’s this woman;
Roxanne Lewis expressed a similar point of view. A small business owner in Grand Junction, Lewis described herself as a lifelong Democrat and called the president a “phenomenal speaker.” She voted for him because she “believed in what he was saying: change.”
But, Lewis added, “I should’ve listened a lot closer when he talked about ‘spreading the wealth.’ ”
Asked how she feels about having voted for the president, Lewis said “I feel lied to, cheated and raped.”
Lewis criticized the taxpayer-funded bailouts of financial institutions, which began under former President George W. Bush and the bailout of General Motors and Chrysler.
At least this woman has a point, even if she is in the wrong place to vent it. In the end though, this woman clearly didn’t see what the bailouts have done, especially the auto bailouts. Did you know Michigan was the state to see the largest economic expansion in recent months?
In the meantime, has anyone polled the number of Republicans who are joining Democratic movements? Guarantee it’s larger than 4% of said movement.
But no, 4% of less than 30% of the population, most of him probably didn’t even vote for Obama except that one woman who clearly doesn’t belong in the tea party, deserves a front page political article on CNN.
So…you heard CNN Obama…listen to the tea party….4% of them are from your party!
