The "Tea Party" Won - updated!

The astroturf tea party first started as what they felt was an offshoot of the Founders vision when they dumped the Tea into the Boston Harbor.   Then they found out that a group founded by the Koch Brothers and run by vermin like Dick Armey and Tim Phillips, could not have been further from the vision of the Founders.

They followed that up with calling themselves "tea baggers", of course they have never been very up with what is actually going on in the country.    So after a short time of fake outrage and pretending they never called themselves that.   After a few good laughs, the left pretty much stopped calling them that also.

Which leads us to the next re-invention of the "tea party"...where they said it now means T-axed E-nough A-lready. (TEA). Party.

Well whatever they are now, the current version of the "tea party" won.  They were "taxed enough already", and President Obama heard them.  

Under President Obama, taxes have hit a 30 year low!! 

According to the latest data from the Congressional Budget Office, tax rates under Obama hit a 30-year low in 2009, in part because of the tax cuts he implemented in response to the country’s economic downturn:

Americans paid the lowest tax rates in 30 years to the federal government in 2009, in part because of tax cuts President Obama sought to combat the Great Recession, congressional budget analysts said Tuesday. [...]

During Obama’s first year in office, the average tax rate paid by all households fell to 17.4 percent, down from 19.9 percent in 2007, according to the CBO. The 2009 rate was significantly lower than the previous low of 19.4 percent in 2003 and well below the 30-year average of 21 percent.

Congratulations and be sure to thank President Obama for helping keep your taxes low and your money in your own pocket!!

I just have one final question since the "tea party" was so successful,  why are republican legislators denying their affiliation with them?

For WATF and anyone who thinks the "tea party" did not originally come up with the term Teabaggers!


  1. Oh Capper, we real Republicans are NOT these TEApublicCONS! I know as a Party of HONEST Abe Lincoln & Progressive Bob LaFollette that our real party base is NOT one that condones this corporate takeover of our elections or the denial of civil rights. We are more the ones who are trying to get those liars, those Robber Baron sell-out our Democracy to put a "T" behind their names on the ballot instead of an "R"!

    1. Um, I didn't write this post.

    2. My dad was a Republican and he thought monopolies were bad for the economy. The Tea Party, or at least Americans for Prosperity, which funds all their ads and rallies, they seem to think monopolies are the way to go.

    3. Of course because they are the monopoly. Monopolies are very good for one party!

  2. Jeff you need to get your facts straight. The term teabaggers was used by the left as an insult towards the Tea Party. It is a sex act popular among democrats, it is not a label the tea party gave themselves.

    1. "The term teabaggers was used by the left as an insult towards the Tea Party."

      No. It was first used by teaidiots.

      "It is a sex act popular among democrats,"

      I leave it to you to google Republican sex arrest to find out what is popular with Republicans.

      "it is not a label the tea party gave themselves."

      Once again, the facts, (not the radio talker 'facts') are inconvenient and entertaining. The base of the Republican party is just as in touch with culture as is the Mitt who tried to do cross cultural outreach by doing a bad version of "Who let the dogs out?".

    2. A sex act?


      Sounds like the tea party was more interesting than we knew. Does it have something to do with the costumes?

    3. I'd love to see a survey of sex practices broken down by political party. Are you speculating or can you point to a reference?

    4. WAtF, are you familiar with many lefty sex acts?

  3. Thanks for those links, I didnt have the time this morning to go get them. However WATF i am certain has no interest in the truth....

    1. However WATF i am certain has no interest in the truth....

      There may be a moment of cognitive dissonance when WATF reads the links- no wait... they haven't figured out what they are yet...
