The Tea Party Republicans are masters in their rhetoric and their attempts to make the federal government the villain, and to demand spending cuts and condemn the growing of the national debt, in the process undermining faith in our government and putting vulnerable Americans at risk by destroying the social safety net and acting like economic terrorists by refusal to uphold the good faith and credit of the United States government, an action that could cause a second Great Depression and worldwide economic chaos as well!
But when one lifts the veneer of these Tea Party radicals, one discovers that there is utter rank hypocrisy, a few examples which will be discussed below.
First, we have Congresswoman Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, one of the leading candidates at this time for the Republican nomination for President, who refuses to support a raising of the debt ceiling and condemns federal programs and spending. And yet, her husband gains federal Medicare funds for his faith based counseling agency that supposedly helps gays to become straight! Also, federal agricultural subsidies are paid for their family farm, and also, the Bachmanns recently received a federally backed mortgage backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which the Congresswoman has condemned for bad borrowing practices and wishes to be disbanded. What utter rank hypocrisy, and apparently, Michele Bachmann is arrogant enough to think that the American people are fools and saps enough that either they will not find out, or that they will not grasp the unethical behavior of this woman who claims to have the credentials to be our President! It is clearly obvious that she is out simply to enrich herself at the expense of the American people, and has found a new way to manipulate and abuse the American taxpayer while claiming to be holier than thou!
Then we have freshman Tea party freshman Joe Walsh of Illinois, who has been gaining a lot of attention and notoriety for his outspokenness and arrogance as he promotes interviews with every news organization imaginable.
Joe Walsh loves to pontificate on the national debt, and refuses to support a raising of the debt, and yet this is a man who has NOT paid child support for his children to his former wife for many years! He is a “deadbeat Dad”, who has had his home put in foreclosure for failure to pay the mortgage, and considers himself a spokesman for others who have lost their homes. This is how he was able to get himself elected in his district by the small margin of 291 votes! But he himself has also spending and debt problems, having amassed a major credit card debt, so he is another example of being holier than thou, and a major hypocrite in so many ways! Of course, like Bachmann, Walsh can now exploit the taxpayer for his own ends, collecting a salary and benefits not available to 99 plus percent of the population, while pontificating on the evil federal government programs!
Other hypocrites include Senator Mike Lee of Utah, Congressman Tim Griffin of Arkansas, and Congressman Kevin Yoder of Kansas, all of whom have high balances on credit cards, while telling us we cannot have a raising of the national debt ceiling! Of course, they are all being enriched by a salary and benefits very few of us have, so they are talking the talk but not walking the walk and being responsible in their own personal financial behavior!
What utter rank hypocrisy by these Tea Party people, who are just ready to destroy the nation while lining their own pockets and demonstrating reckless behavior!
