As a substitute teacher in a HS AP class was very alarmed at the gross incorrect information being fed to the students. I had the students Google some of the questions and answers to learn not to just believe everything they hear or read but to check out original sources as far as possible. A few days later several students came to me and told me that the teacher was angry and I would never sub for her again! I don't fault the teacher as much as I do the system which demands use of these computerized teaching programs which teachers seem to believe are correct. I am not speaking of ideological things but wrong century, wrong people, wrong wars, etc. I am amazed that the teacher did not spot the errors - must have slept through college.

Is 'Not Obama' Enough?

Yes, those are the principles that I helped form the Tea Party in my town. After the successful 2010 election that took the House, many devolved into things that had little to do with the constitution or fiscal responsibility and more to do Controlling others behavior. Abortion is awful, SSM is just not normal, and I would like people to behave but the Left is focused on what we eat and the Right on how we act when none of these problems can be addressed if we do not win elections and have an economy where people can put food on the table and gas in their tanks. If you really read the constitution, it's intent is freedom even if that freedom allows people to do really destructive things not to restrict in accordance with which ever group is in power. We need to maintain our principles but we also need to win in order to support those ideas.

Nobody listens. With Tea Party loosing most rational supporters with their pushing unqualified candidates and far far right positions, me being among them. I do not recognize their version of conservatives. Republican's need to understand that the economy is the biggest problem not SSM, abortion, weed, global warming, etc. or other diversions created by the Democrats, for working class and other middle class to focus on other than the real problems. Focus on solutions to this basic need in this country - real jobs, Real healthcare, real energy policy. I do not support any of the diversions but it is time to go to work and solve the true problems.

This author worked very hard to defeat Romney. It is conservatism according to Steve. Steve got what he wanted-Romney was defeated, Obama was elected. Now he wants to rid the RNC of all who disagree with his narrow view and if he secedes, we will lose again. Just who's side is he on?

My Response to Mitt Romney

It is obvious that this writer did not hear the question or the answer given in context. Romney was ask if Bill Clinton's womanizing should be a factor in the 2016 race. His response was that Hillary be judged on her own past not her husbands as she was not responsible for his girl chasing activities. This writer was so happy Romney lost as many other conservatives so now he should have no complaints About Obama or his heir Hillary. Are you going to help the Dems win again?
I see that you seem to think that no one who isn't "Tea Party" is a RINO or not conservative like Romney who you had no use for- so you and many others brought us Obama. You have a right to your opinion but leading the charge against the Repub Estabishment is not going to win and keep the dems in charge just like 2012. How is that working for you. I was a Tea Party organizer in 2010 and after the successful election, I was no longer welcome as the other organizer, a Catholic. I am a Mormon. Sorry Michelle, they wouldn't like you either. My group assisted in keeping McCaskill in office with that idiot they supported. I believe the Tea Party can be effective but they need to understand that unless we WIN we will get 2012 over and over.
