re: #341 Emerald

It’s not a matter of who started, or why. The issue is what they’ve become - an attraction for fringe groups who only hurt any legitimate efforts to counter bad policies.

The problem is that those bad policies are the same policies Bush had. Now the GOP has to forget about the past eight years and embrace anti-government ideas, otherwise they would have to cheer what Obama is doing. Anti-government positions are pretty universal among the right, so it’s obviously going to attract fringe groups.

The problem around LGF is that guilt-by-association is such an over-used line of attack, that they have to attack the tea parties due to a few kooks. LGF is nothing if not consistent.
