An article on CNN.com featured democrats that have now aligned themselves with the tea party. The recent poll by CNN showed that 4% of tea party attendees are democrats. If the amount of democrats joining the movement continues to grow, the mainstream media will have to change it's narrative about them being "racists", "wingnuts", and "extremists"; at least one would think.

A small business owner in Grand Junction, Lewis described herself as a lifelong Democrat and called the president a "phenomenal speaker." She voted for him because she "believed in what he was saying: change." But, Lewis added, "I should've listened a lot closer when he talked about 'spreading the wealth.' " Asked how she feels about having voted for the president, Lewis said "I feel lied to, cheated and raped."
"She regrets voting for Barack Obama,"
"A lot of the things he says sound good, until you look at the consequences of what they will do on the long term."

This is troubling to the democrats in an election year that could very well sway the control of congress. I personally believe that Republicans have a very long road to hoe when it comes to the Senate, but they could very well take back the House. This will be even more likely if Obama/Reid/Pelosi continue the by hook or by crook ways that they used to pass healthcare. When the president's staff came out and said that Americans don't pay much attention to process, I believe this is proof that indeed they do.
A belief in the written constitution. The belief that we are responsible for ourselves and for our families. The belief that we are allowed to fail. The belief in a strong national defense are a few of the things that make me just a conservative girl.
