1. Can't they ever tell the truth about anything?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tea_Party_Caucus

^snip^


The Tea Party Caucus is a congressional caucus of the United States House of Representatives and Senate launched and chaired by Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann on July 16, 2010. The caucus is dedicated to promoting what it considers fiscal responsibility, adherence to the movement's interpretation of the Constitution and limited government. The idea of a Tea Party Caucus originated from Kentucky Senator Rand Paul when he was campaigning for his current seat.

The caucus was approved as an official congressional member organization by the House Administration Committee on July 19, 2010 and held its first meeting on July 21. Its first public event was a press conference on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol, also on July 21. Four Senators joined the caucus on January 27, 2011.

8. They only quoted 1/2 of his sentence

Unfortunately for us:

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE JOHN BOEHNER: Oh, listen. I think this has been the most mis-reported story of my 2 years as tenure. We don’t have a Tea Party Caucus to speak of in the House – all of us who were elected 2010 were supported by the Tea Party. These are ordinary Americans who’ve taken a more active role in our government, they want solutions – but we’ve all come a long way over the last 2 years, and I think we all understand each other a lot better

Am I the only one who interprets this that all House Republicans are aligned with the Tea Party?
