  • Only 3% of Tea Partiers realize that Obama has actually lowered taxes. To me that says alot.

  • Did we read the same article? They basically said these crazies are the fringe and don't represent the majority.

  • Do you also realize that the most radical signs are put there by people who aren't Tea Party members. They are from a specific group that is paid to make the rally look too extreme. I listened to an undercover police officer who infiltrated this group and he discussed the tactics used. One of them is to make very radical looking signs, signs that boarder on racist, and to position themselves near cameras and yell racial epithets, or incite the rally attendees to a point of defending themselves and then film that. This story is fresh. All this will be coming out. The Tea Party Express is hiring security to try to keep these people out.

  • jesse oh that is a real shocker! lol Most knew that has been going on.I find it hilarious how some imply the tea partys mean nothing yada yada..yet there are groups of liberals going out of their way to do things like that and others.There was a teacher recently who emailed the entire district (yes with the school account) trying to get together people to protest the tea party protesters.Numerous websites out there wanting to battle them...apparently,somebody is worried enough to go through the effort.

  • Fox did not admit anything. They just posted some facts.

    But Tea Party organizers -- both nationally and locally -- say the misinformed beliefs of some do not represent the views of all.

    "Any movement is going to have fringe elements," said Joan Fabiano, an organizer with Grassroots in Michigan, a Tea Party group based in Lansing, Mich.

    "If there's any sort of hateful and racist signs, that is something the Tea Party in general would disavow," she said.

    Typical misleading post by a lib.

  • The central arguments about health care trumpeted by Tea Partiers are also trumpeted by Republican lawmakers across the country. For instance, Tea Partiers have used the health care overhaul as an example of what they believe is a violation of the U.S. Constitution -- an argument also shared by 19 states that have filed lawsuits over the legislation

    Where in the article is FOX stating specifically that Obama is NOT a socialist?
