"Where are the "principles of - truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness and public accountability"

Precisely, Ron.....we've been asking ourselves this question since 2008.

leaningright, Good post. It would certainly be much healthier for our country if people started to be more concerned about the welfare of our people, rather than a political party. JMO-Have a good evening-Scott

CM Reeder- what I really want is for our country to be sucessful and for people to not have to struggle and that just doesn't seem to be happening right now. Right or left is kind of insignificant at this point. Left and right, we have a congress that is not working for us and that has to stop. Whos the President? Obama is, Cruz is even too right for me if that is possible but Obama needs to come to the center from where he is right now in my opinion. Have a nice day!

leaningright, Thank you for a straight forward answer, I suspected it was something along those lines. But sometimes "insignificant" little comments/questions such as you posed can lead to some very interesting conversation. Have a nice day sir!-Scott

Spoken like a true rightie wait until the next election to do something and then wait for the one after that and the one after that. They will just lie and wait.

Scott, it was just a way to release my absolute disgust towards this administration, thats all, plain and simple. I guess it was more a statment than a question. Nothing will be achieved here Scott, that will have to happen at the next election.

So low IQ if the Tea Party goes down so will the Nation.-Bobbie2

I believe that you are way too self absorbed in this party that cannot even stand by itself. Face some true life facts, it is a minority(maybe not in this area) splinter of Extreme right wing zealots. LOL Just wanting something bad enough, does not make it fact.

In order for the republican party to return to their roots they would have to reject the Tea party.

The left does have an ideology the right rejects it out of hand constantly.

Guess that explains it pretty well.-bobbie2

Sure does!!! It would appear that you have not got a viable argument, so you come up with these semi-cute little deflections. BUT that will not help your precious little TP. I still feel that the "parasitic insect" is about to be given a severe blow by it's host, the real GOP. Again thanks for the laugh!!

The Tea Party has no trouble with ideology.-underwood

Other than the fact that they cannot convince enough Americans to vote one of them into the Whitehouse. Other than the fact that it takes gerrymandering, & serious questions of voter suppression to get their people into office of Congress. Sounds like they are doing just peachy.

They don’t even want to admit the underpinnings of their ideology to themselves.-underwood

I personally see things that are not to my liking with the left, gun control is one easy example for me. Do you happen to acknowledge/admit any "underpinnings" in the choice of your political party/ideology?

"Linn’s Stamp News reports that the US Postal Service will destroy the entire press run of a stamp series aimed at getting children to be more active. According to Linn’s reporter Bill McAllister, three of the stamps in the fifteen stamp series raised safety concerns among sports figures on the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition. The stamps in question depicted children performing a cannonball dive, skateboarding without kneepads, and doing a headstand without a helmet. The unsafe depictions came to light after USPS Marketing chief Nagisa Manabe asked Michelle Obama to take part in a first day 'Let's Move!' ceremony for the stamps. That was apparently the first time the stamps had been reviewed by the Sports Council."

Drink.

The Tea Party has no trouble with ideology. The posts from the left leave little doubt the left has to substitute narrative and political correctness for ideology. They don’t even want to admit the underpinnings of their ideology to themselves.

Looks to like the Tea Party is doing an excellent the Rinos are in a twit....-bobbie2

Yea, ROTF****!!! My personal opinion is that the GOP has about had it with the parasitic tea party that has latched onto it. It is pretty obvious considering how the party is rallying around good ole ted cruz!! JB is another example of the leadership of the current GOP/tea.(another round of laughing is building up in me) I guess we shall see in the next few weeks, or months. But thanks for the laugh!!!

They all know at some level that they can’t win on ideological grounds, so they pull out all the stops in their effort to use narrative to discredit anything that might cause that to happen.-underwood

So, how are those "ideological" grounds working out for the tea party? I mean nationally, not just in this area. Me thinks that without all of those gerrymandered districts, it would be pretty bleak for them.-JMO. Also, Personally, I would love to see the old GOP come back. IMO, it is what helped keep this country in true greatness. That being the 2 parties being closer ideologically & both trying to make this country stronger(in the name of the party of course) not a party that seems to revel in "trashing" everything about our government, & having a goal of "drowning it in a bathtub".

Obviously the disagreers recognize their contribution to this demographic.-bobbie2

Me thinks you put too much faith in agrees/disagrees. Personally I have never felt the need to rely on others to make me feel correct about my own opinions. BUT, speaking of "parasites", when is the tea party going to fess up & recognize that they are nothing more than a bloated tick using the GOP as a host???? BTW, you seem to be off lately, I saw you using the "IQ" thing on another poster, in a warped sort of way, I feel slighted:)
