In one of the best articles I have ever read Julie Driscoll of www.addictinginfo.org/ perfectly describes what these Tea Party Assholes are all about. The article is here. Here are the traits she describes in the article. I have thought this a long time but she does an excellent job of putting it all into focus.
Like abusers, Republicans must win at all costs.
Like abusers, Republicans will invalidate you.
Like abusers, Republicans will grind you down
Like an abuser, Republicans don’t care who they hurt.
On our side of the fence individuals for the most try to take a look at our motivations, seek to come to some sort of compromise with others and try to act with as much integrity as we can. To the Tea Party types these are weaknesses to be taken advantage of. Enough is enough. It is time to do what Julie advises.
Now, it’s time to call their bluff.
This is what the President and the Democrats did when these abusers threatened to blow up the economy of the country they supposedly love. We must always be aware of what we are dealing with.
