Bloviating Zeppelin: Texas Senator "Booed" at TEA Party

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Texas Senator "Booed" at TEA Party



U.S. Sen. John Cornyn drew boos from a crowd outside the Texas Capitol this afternoon as he spoke at a “tea party” rally organized by the Texas office of Americans for Prosperity.

Cornyn was booed at the start and close of his remarks, which assailed actions in Washington; there were no boos while he awarded a Purple Heart to a Copperas Cove resident injured in Iraq in 2006.

“You’re the problem,” a crowd member hollered.

Another crowd member yelled that Cornyn voted for the initial federal bailout of Wall Street approved by Congress last year, the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

Let me guess: the "crowd member" was Texas Fred.

BZ,
Yep.. That was TF in the crowd! ;)

LD, What is wrong with eating your own when they drop their convictions holding hands with Leftists who are shackled to their failing ideology. Why would we want to be in chains along with statitst? The leftist ideology that will inevitably oppress us.

The left allowed their party to become Marxists and like lemmings are following them right off the cliff. Why? Because leftists don't think for themselves it is too much work. They will be used by their own party then dropped off the cliff when they wake up oppressed and unable to get out.

So many Republicans are and were complicit in establishing The Nanny State. They should be held accountable, right along with the Dems.

Anon: and the Dems are so Kumbayah themselves, right?

Democratic Sens. Ben Nelson (Neb.), Mary Landrieu (La.), Arlen Specter (Pa.), Ron Wyden (Ore.) and Dianne Feinstein (Calif.)?

Helen Thomas not drinking the ObamaAid? Biden making policy?

O yeah, Anon.

Just like you embrace ALL Demorats.

Rivka & AOW: Convictions of the party. In combination with what is best for the nation, not the ONE.

No, I was NOT there... We were burning our asses off here at home, it was 104° at the middle of the rally...

Americans for Prosperity are a bunch of RINOs, nothing more, and yeah, I did have a go at the unscrupulous bastards...

Cornyn needed to be egged and have a few rotten tomatoes thrown at his RINO ass too...

The Republicans have always eaten their young...ALWAYS. That ridiculous 'Big Tent' BS.
The Dems are wrong on everything but they stick together and you will NEVER hear a Dem criticize another Dem on the air..NEVER. Unless he leaves for the Right side, of course.

Ya, Helen Thomas is waking up..Chip Reid is waking up. We need the media to wake up..more and more, they will. Even some of those dopes still love this country and want her protected from socialism and outside forces.

I'm glad they booed Cornyn..they ALL deserve it.

Rivka; Really now. You're the 'lemming' Everything you mention was done in spades and begun by YOUR previous administration.

And spare me the Marxist parrot-points.

I've seen politicians with a D beside their name get booed... or run away from protesters. Or cower in their office. Tea Party members are Republicans, Democrats, Independents and those who haven't voted now finding that those who HAVE are trying to rob them blind.

So long as politics was moderate, taxes were low and interference in the lives of individuals not onerous, many left politics and voting and did not exercise their franchise right. Now they see officious government, smarmy peddlers of politics who demean ordinary working Americans, those who want government to rule not govern, and the perpetual members of Incumbistan and the sight those who have stayed outside politics now see is that those who have voted have ignored their fellow citizens. If those who have been claiming they are oh-so-smarter than those who don't vote had exercised any wisdom, then we would not be in the place where an entire movement of hundreds of thousands is being studiously ignored by the media and by the Incumbistani supporters.

This movement can't eat its young, as it has just been born. And its enemies are the supporters of the sclerotic, addicted, and incapable two party system that has failed those in this new movement... and the Nation. This movement is going to eat the old politics, and grind up the two party system if we are very lucky.

If we aren't lucky and the 'smart' try to resist, then things will get very messy, very quickly. Trying to stop the free expression of Liberty by being smug, being condescending and being unable to see beyond an archaic view that is getting dissolved before your eyes is not so 'smart' at all. Trying to stop it marks you as an enemy of Liberty and Freedom, of which the greatest expression is the freedom FROM government.

In case some folks have missed that.

When they repeatedly betray their principles they are Democrats in Fact if not name. A few were sold a load of goods and made a bad vote and have openly regretted it, but the ones who keep who repeating it are the problem.

For a certain segment of the population to decide NOW, after 8 years of fascism and now Obama now trying to clean up the mess, to 'rise up' is disingenuous at best. Treasonous, is more like it. But they are just stpuid lemmings. The stupid, not the meek, will inherit the earth. Then destroy it.

Poor LD, can't even figure out what fascism is: the Nationalist brand of Socialism.

I look at what has been going on and call the last few Administrations ones that have been heading us into Transnational Progressivism which is a threat to liberal democracy in the old school, 18th century liberal sense, and also has a Left and Right wing to it. But then understanding what Transnational Progressivism is, why it is a threat to liberal democracy and Nations, and that it can have multiple sides working towards similar ends... ahhh... that doesn't fit in the nice, neat and easy Left/Right paradigm of modern politics now, does it?

It is sad that the modern political lexicon cannot expand to include other ideas than just those of the period from the French Revolution to WWII, and then seek to classify everything by outmoded concepts put down by a far to sclerotic and archaic system of thought that is stuck in the mode of eroding civil liberties to hand more to government to do and then liquify the say of the citizenry in their own lives. That winds you up with citizens being wards of the State... working for the State... slaves of the State... and has been worked on by the Left and Right for decades. And I don't see any improvement in the current President over most of those of the 20th century. So sorry.

What a hoot! I think Cornyn has been booed before.

About transnationalism: I ranted about that somewhere today, so won't do that again, but believe me, the non-proliferation business that went on in Russia is dear, dear to Obama and his senate bill 2433 - just waiting around, festering, until the time is right.

LiberalDude - "now Obama is trying to clean up the mess?" You obviously have no idea what's coming straight at you.

Nice Posting..

At the St. Louis Tea Parties we Don't allow Any Politicians to Speak, just everyday normal Pissed Off Citizens and the local Tea Party Organizers.

Keep up the Good Work...

Maggie - My links go to W. R. Mead who's work is seminal in the examination of it, and he extended it to the political 'Right'. We are, unfortunately, reliving Weimar with the Reds and the Browns going after each other... save they aren't to prussic acid just yet.

It is impossible to make a definition of 'fascism' that will take in Mussolini, Hitler, and Bush, without Obama and Clinton. Both Kaus and Goldberg have done yoeman's work on that and the connections with US Progressivism. When you have members of SNCC quoting Mussolini it becomes very hard to distance the modern Left from the Socialist Right of the '30s. What is even more frightening is the modern Left now sounding very much like the leaders of the French Revolution... but then they would have to study history to understand what they are doing, and that looks to be beyond the ability of modern Leftists who enjoy making up history. Wilson did that and the Left continues that and Wilson's moral philosophy on the nature of man to this day. A true horror, that.
