They are calling the Teapartiers Extremist.
Leader of House Democrats, Nancy Pelosi sayswe about the budget vote;
“What we’re trying to do is save the world from the Republican budget. We’re trying to save life on this planet as we know it today.”
Even John McCain the so called Republican has been condescending if not insulting calling Tea party conservatives Hobbits.
“The Republican House that failed to raise the debt ceiling would somehow escape all blame. Then Democrats would have no choice but to pass a balanced-budget amendment and reform entitlements, and the tea-party Hobbits could return to Middle Earth having defeated Mordor.
This is the kind of crack political thinking that turned Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell into GOP Senate nominees.”
So if we are to believe the old guard Republicans and Democrats. Trying to limit spending and not wanting more tax burdens is extremism, while indefinitely spending more than we take in is mainstream.
I think we just need more extremism.
