2. it's that teabagger from Kansas.. starts with an H

he was even too nutty for Boehner and got kicked off some committee for not being a team player. I'm sure someone will recall his name better than I can.

Sounds like a furrin' name.

29. Does sound like some kind of forriner name or something...?

Is he pretending to be an American, or is he a full-on TeaBagliCon (R) ?

3. This segment really shows what the country is up against. The 1% have their money, they don't care

about the rest of the country and the future of the rest of the children..only their children. They don't care because they have more money than they will ever be able to spend so losing money by not investing in our economy does not matter to them. They will lose money just to keep the 98% from getting anything. Just think about how much they already threw away during the last election. They claim everything is a "spending problem." Sure tax increases alone will not solve our economic woes but deep cuts in social programs will absolutely tank out economy for millions more citizens than angry billionaires not hiring people will. If you didn't already know that these people are EVIL, you should know it after watching the on Morning Joe.

25. This is not a "rich vs. poor" issue for him and others in the Tea Party...

...it's an issue of Government illegitimacy. Government is bad, Government shouldn't tell me what to do, Government doesn't deserve my money.

6. The Tea Party Congressman accused Joe S. of politicizing the school shooting

There was total shock on *everyone* on the show that the congressman from Kansas would not even consider any kind of discussion on assault weapons.

Scarborough was insulted that the Kansas guy would accuse him of politicizing the school massacre.

It was amazing TV.

Hope someone posts video.

10. When is Joe going to have a "crisis of conscience" and distance himself from the Rethugs?

I mean, how often does a political group have to be offensive and wrong before you decide that you cannot associate with them any longer? I'm not expecting Joe to become a Dem, but at some point he needs to ask himself why he considers himself a Repug...

30. I want to see Joe's reaction to the NRA statement if they refuse to give any ground

Joe has been raging against people who say that it's a rights infringement to not be able to have access to a semi-automatic (as if you need one for protection or hunting).

If the NRA refuses to acknowledge the need for some restrictions in this aftermath I wonder if Joe will give up his membership like George H. W. Bush did after the "jack-booted thugs" incident years ago.

14. Tim Huelskamp is the embodiment of what is wrong with the Republicans.

He must be called out. Can someone talk to these idiots in the 1st district of Kansas, and ask them whats up? This guy won't even budge on assault weapons laws.

This guy is a colossal fuck-up.

19. And yet that's Joe's Party, that is the Party Starbucks pays him to promote, the Party that elected

Joe to office, and the Party that Joe constantly defends in every way. So when Joe, as part of doing his job, plays the role he played this morning, it is all about promoting the GOP.
Unless Joe changes Parties, his theatrics will always end with Democrats in the wrong, because Joe is a Republican exactly like his guest. There is no 'Tea Party' outside the world of terms of art, they are all Republicans in one big boat. If the guest was Tea Party, then so is Joe, for they are members of the same political Party no matter what you call it. Calling the crazy Republicans 'Tea Party' serves the Republicans. There is no Tea Party. No such Party has elected anyone to Congress, the Republicans have, Republicans like Joe and his guest.

31. Oh My God---

Now you know why I call myself KrazyinKS--they make me go nuts!!! They say his district gets more government money than any other in Kansas. That may be per capita. I can't source that fact I saw it on some Kansas politics show that comes on Sunday morning on TV. That is who these guys are. If you are from Wichita (big city to them) then they immediately distrust you. Just go to a family reunion out in western Kansas and get shunned when they find out you are from Wichita. They are totally dependent on big government. It is semi-arid land out there and they are trying to grow corn-a high water demanding crop. The rivers are dried out and they need they government subsidies to survive. But they join the teaparty and want less taxes. WOW!!!!
