This is what happens when you elect people more into abortion and other trivial things than what you "thought" you elected.

This is what happens when people figure out that your "cuts" are the same things that Republicans always try to cut and not based on what can realistically be supported.

This is what happens when the people you elect and support continute to say the dumbest things ever heard uttered by a politician.

This is what happens when you tell people that a government shutdown "might be a good idea".

Forty-seven percent of people questioned say they have an unfavorable view of the tea party, up four points from December and an increase of 21 points from January 2010. That 47 percent is virtually identical to the 48 percent unfavorable ratings for both the Democratic party and the Republican party in the same poll.

"This is the first time that a CNN poll has shown the tea party's unfavorable ratings as high as those of the two major parties," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "It looks like the rise in the movement's unfavorable rating has come mostly among people who make less than $50,000."

The tea party movement's unfavorable rating rose 15 points since October among lower-income Americans, compared to only five points among those making more than $50,000. Roughly half of all American households have incomes under $50,000, and half make more than that.

"It's possible the drop among lower income Americans is a reaction to the tea party's push for large cuts in government programs that help lower-income Americans, although there are certainly other factors at work," adds Holland.

I know right? I'm so glad Obama stuck to his promises to end the wars and release prisoners from Gitmo.

Wow. I actually didn't think that this was that big of a deal either, but the vitriole with which Tea Party knob-slobbers are responding to this story has me thinking differently.

All of us that were disappointed with the Presidents decision on Gitmo expressed it openly. You know, like men.

One of the differences here is that Obama went into office clearly making closing Gitmo an early priority. Political, technical or practical issues have made him change his mind. It's upsetting to a lot of us, but it was never a bait and switch situation.

Now you have these Tea Partiers who elected people solely on their ability to not consider party sacred cows when cutting spending, and instead they are parroting the Republican party lines (as of course, was the point when the Tea Party was created) and concentrating on abortion laws and such (i.e. Making Government Bigger). The ones that are not into that as much are simply hosting opinion shows, selling books, or continuing the BS talking points in order to make a Presidential bid.

I told you all this a very long time ago, the Tea Party already exists, and it's called the Libertarian Party. Man up and deal with the downsides of that, or just vote Republican and deal with the downsides of that. Lord knows I deal with the downsides of being a Democrat every day.
