One of the more prominent Tea Party groups has already begun laying the groundwork for 2012 before the winners of the 2010 election are even sworn in. There are five Republican (RINO) Senators up for re-election in 2012 that the Tea Party Nation has deemed to be primary primary targets. Of all five, the most disappointing one is Scott Brown of Massachusetts. He's not a career politician. He was swept into office by riding a wave of Tea Party anger and it didn't take him long to stab his voters in the back. Less than a year ago, there was discussion about how presidential he'd be. Such talk now would justifiably be met with derisive laughter. Lugar is the most egregious RINO and has been in office since 1977 - far too long.

Via RTT News:
A prominent Tea Party group sent a message to members on Monday identifying five current Republican Senators that they intend to target in 2012.

Tea Party Nation named Sens. Dick Lugar, R-Ind., Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, Scott Brown, R-Mass., and Bob Corker, R-Tenn., as Republicans that need to be sent into retirement, accusing them of being Republicans In Name Only, or RINOs.

The message cited Lugar's vote against a ban on earmarks as well as a his votes in favor of the DREAM Act and the START Treaty. Hatch was also criticized for being a "pork king" and a co-sponsor of the DREAM Act, which would have provided a path to citizenship for certain young illegal immigrants.
Remember those names. Much of the frustration conservative Americans are feeling right now is directly attributable to these five individuals. Again, Brown is the most blatant disgrace but RINOs, in general, are more disgraceful than Democrats who tell you who they are.

The flip-side of Texas gaining four congressional seats is that other states are losing them. Interestingly, Ohio is losing two of them and speculation is mounting that the seat currently being occupied by registered member of the Socialist Party of America caucus - Dennis Kucinich may be one of them. I found this interview he did with CNN's Jessica Yellin interesting for several reasons. Early on, he concedes that his district, which is near Cleveland, has seen a significant loss in population.

Take note - starting at the 1:00 mark - of what he attributes that loss in population to. He says it has to do with the loss of jobs (a sensible person would point that finger at Obama) and then blames the sub-prime mortgage crisis! Let's see, the Community Re-investment Act (CRA) was signed into law by Jimmy Carter (D), given teeth by Bill Clinton (D), and used to drive the housing market over the cliff by Chris Dodd (D) and Barney Frank (D) via Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Then, take note at about the 3:30 mark as Yellin begins talking about Republican successes in state legislatures all across the country during a re-districting year. She comes across as bemoaning the fact that the Democrats took such a beating in such an important year. After Kucinich basically says it is what it is, Yellin takes her bias a step futher and whines, "You don't think it needs reforming?!" Just another case of blatant media bias. Once again, the left is happy with the rules until they don't work for them.

Another telling moment comes at about the 5:40 mark where Kucinich actually says, "The biggest questions in our society relate to how wealth is distributed." Ah, we come full circle. Under a socialist administration, wealth - as well as population in Kucinich's district - was distributed out of that district. The irony is that Kucinich the socialist could be a casualty of the socialist policies he advocates.

Oh, just to clear up any misperception that I'm hurling pejoratives at Kucinich by calling him a socialist, he's one of the 70 members of congress who was identified as such in 2009. Not only that but he was listed as a Vice Chair.

Via CNN:


You've seen him on the big screen, on the television screen, and most recently a Geico commercial. His name is R. Lee Ermey and he's likely best known for his appearance in the 1987 Stanley Kubrick film Full Metal Jacket and more specifically, the ten minute boot camp scene. Ermey used quite the seque in making the Obama administration the object of his scorn. He went from Toys for Tots to Obama's plan to transform America into a socialist country in no time flat.

Gotta love this guy.
