If they are vowing "to carry the teea-party banner" then they are working AGAINST the best interests of the United States, and do not deserve to be considered for the office of President. Their type of the "my way or the highway" intransigence and bullying is the last thing we need, given the mess we're in now.

Perry is right, no one has created more minimum wage jobs than he has. By the way can anyone tell me what the tea party banner is? I don't mean the sound bites about the constitution, I would like to see a real platform with real solutions, not sound bites about limited government and reduced spending. What are you going to cut and how much, not Paul Ryan's smoke and mirrors budget with unrealistic revenue growth. Lets hear some real solutions, you hate entitlements so which ones are you cutting and by how much?

Oh and please could Michelle Bachman share here plan for $2.00 a gallon gas, I am really looking forward to that one, or maybe I misunderstood and her plan was for $2.00 for a half a gallon of gas.

All I can see the tea party doing is what they accuse the other side of doing, misrepresenting the facts, politicizing everything, and providing no solutions. Name calling and demogoging does not solve problems and that is what both sides do best.
