"The Tea Party is extreme?"

Um yeah. They are.

"Damn the world view of some people is just so whacked that it really is remarkable."

I assume by 'whacked' you mean views that don't match your own. Thats a problem for you, no one else.

"The Tea Party is not remotely extreme."

Yeah, they are, and I am certainly not the only one who has made that observation.

"They are the folks looking for the simplest straightforward government and a government we can pay for."

Oh, that is what they SAY they are for, yes.

"Folks may not agree with them, but there is not an extremists movement there."

I guess you can define what is extreme for you, but you don't get to override what other folks think;

[ "While the Tea Party faithful would have you believe they are not really Republicans, the reality is that they simply represent the most extreme, intransigent, and radical members of the broader conservative movement." ]

"You really have to get out the old mirror and take a look at yourself, if those old geezers are your idea if extremists. Again, you may want a different government, but to call them extreme means you have deluded yourself to a fairly remarkable level. Well actually that the MSM has deluded you or led to your delusion."

I would say the same to you. If you don't recognize that the Tea Party is an extreme faction of the Republican party, you are not only deluded, but you are unaware of the world around you.

"Check your premises folks, reset the dialogue sanity meter."

Again, other folks have this opinion. Sorry, charlie. You may disagree with them, but you should at least be aware of what people think - instead of what you wish they would think. Look around, read a bit.

[ "Tea Party more extreme than conservatives, GOP, America" ]
