"So was Warren Harding." Sure, never mind the massive scandals and corruption. This is exactly why the TeaParty is actually a bit scary. the good news is that more people now see the Tea Party label as a negative than those that see Conservative, moderate or even liberal tags as a negative.

Fast and Furious, Benghazi, $6 trillion in new debt, the worst economic recovery in American history, $800 billion squandered in a useless Stimulus that only stimulated the pockets of donors in Wall Street and Union, Inc.?

Also, what is scary, please, about an American grassroots movement that supports constitutionally limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets? Of course, to a liberal or a Marxist, this would be very scary stuff.
For years, most Americans' vision of history has been shaped by the New Deal historians. Writing soon after Franklin Roosevelt's death, Arthur Schlesinger Jr. and others celebrated his accomplishments and denigrated his opponents.

They were gifted writers, and many of their books were bestsellers. And they have persuaded many Americans -- Barack Obama definitely included -- that progress means an ever bigger government

In their view, the prosperous 1920s were a binge of mindless frivolity. The Depression of the 1930s was the inevitable hangover, for which FDR administered the cure.

That's one way to see it. But there are others, and...
