The concerted attack on the Tea Party during the past couple of weeks -- by not only the Democrat leaders, but by their like-minded friends in the news media -- is astounding. Prior to the debt ceiling legislation being signed into law by Barack Obama last week, the coordinated attack campaign against the Tea Party included using the talking points from the political hacks at the Democrats' national headquarters. The main talking point was that the Tea Party activists were terrorists. They whined that the Tea Party was also holding the country hostage, and on and on.
Even the vice president of the United States was quoted by several sources saying that he agreed with a Democrat member of Congress who called the Tea Party terrorists. In the same Democrat caucus meeting, according to "Politico" on August 1, 2011, Joe Biden said that the debt ceiling deal -- finally agreed to by the Republican congressional leadership -- would take away the Tea Party's "weapon of mass destruction," the threat of default on U.S. debt obligation.
