  • I just posted this in the other post but it's good you put it in it's own post.CNN would not show it but it is also on one of the tea party sites.

  • How awesome that the reporter was called out for generalizing about a subject that she was so obviously ignorant about. I'm am sick to death of all the talking head commentary pointing fingers and shouting, "Racist redneck Republicans!" when they are completely deluded as to WHAT these Tea Parties we truly about. Thank you so much for posting this. I'm passing it along as well.

  • Thanks for posting the link to that video. I think the one thing that is being missed in addition to how she treated these people and talked to them, is the fact that what she was saying to them completely disregarded our right to FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Regardless of whether she agreed with what they had to say, they had the right to say it. So sorry that Susan felt that it was "offensive" to call our President a fascist! She apparently has no clue that the people find it offensive that IT'S THEIR TAX DOLLARS that represents the stimulus money she so pointed out that Illinois was getting. Oh, and to point out that the man with the child was eligible for a $400.00 tax credit--as if to say you should be grateful! Just another good example of an idiot who just doesn't get it!

  • I saw the video on a news channel and was wondering just how far does she think that $400.00 tax credit will go..... It won't even feed that little boy for 2 months!!!! Just goes to show how out of touch some folks really are with the actual American People.

  • I think the way she was acting and talking to people was a deliberate attempt to stir up and antagonize people with the hopes of startin a riot. Now, we all know that would have been great news for Susan and you can bet, if that had happened, CNN would have neatly kept any involvement she had in starting out of the public eye so they could turn it around and the Government could jump on board to make the American citizens look like some kind of threat to national security. Just what they would have loved to see happen with the Tea Parties and you know they were fully prepared to bring in the National Guard that day. Something like what she attempted is all they need to implement martial law--they are just waiting.

  • How on earth would she know what tax deductions that man is eligible for? Maybe he is divorced from his wife and his wife has sole custody and he isn't paying child support. Maybe it's really his neighbor's kid. And, $400? Ummmmmm, not really that much in the larger scheme of things. Yeah, it's a chunk of change, but it's not like it's going to save him from foreclosure.

  • How is this any different than when Fox News -O'Rielly, Beck over talk their guests when they do not agree with them? It isn't.

  • She is a reporter and she came out to a tea party to purposely cause problems.Thinks she knows it all because her nose is so far up Obama and this admins a$$.Demeaned every person at the tea partys.CNN played what they wanted portrayed only.Made such a big deal of the Obama sign yet she covered protest during the Bush years where people had him as hitler and she had no problem with that.Let's not forget she got turned down for a job by FOX twice.She was a woman with a vendetta that day.
