  • Grly, if a Democrat was recruiting street people to run on a TEA Party ticket against a Republican, what would you say?

    It says to me that this particular "Republican operative" doesn't have enough faith in his own ticket, so he's trying to stack the deck. What kind of message is that to send to the voters?

  • Just another example of a system that is in disrepair. And people wonder why so many are apathetic.

  • How does voting for a person who doesn't even have an address, let alone political experience, any better for the state than a known entity? Isn't the goal to elect people with some knowledge or skill to contribute? Talk about frying pan to fire scenario- what a lousy game for the citizens of AZ; the choice of bad or worse.

  • Grly- it's not about empowering the "street people." There are appropriate programs for that-

  • gdiamante, I don't see the Tea party as an officially recognized party. I think those who believed in the tea party in the post TARP/Stimulus rallies, would see through 'street' people who were recruited by another party. I have faith in the American people to wake up and demand more. Maybe this stunt will be a good thing. Wake up people to be mad and demand MORE... Wake up 'street' people to want to do MORE...

    I didn't say that is why this guy recruited them... I was commenting on the article states they appear to be emboldened.  If OP had a more specific question, she should have asked.

    Maybe it will piss off the voters to wake them up to demand more... Across the board.

  • I remember more than one poster who expressed disdain for the Michigan Tea Party, started by a frat boy democrat to split the republican vote. Interesting...

    In any case i L-O-V-E dirty politics. If people are too dumb to know about the individual they are voting for then they deserve to get screwed.
