Pot meet Kettle…The Tea party Convention only approves media associated heavily with right-wing media

Argh!

Now these people were screaming at the top of their lungs only a few weeks ago when the Obama administration said Fox News cannot join on Q & A session and The Tea party do this.

Tea Party Nation has released an update on the status of their upcoming convention at the Opryland Hotel which includes the names of five organizations they have granted media access for the entire event three-day event.

Organizers had initially announced the event would be closed, but today Sarah Palin made known her request that her speech be open to media.

The five approved outlets are: Fox News, Breitbart.com, Townhall.com, World Net Daily and The Wall Street Journal. All five are widely considered to be Right-leaning organizations.

Its a shame…the tea party are suppose to cater more to the Libertarians, they are no better than the right-wing nuts when they pull this crap stuff.

Shame on you.

Clinton – “The reason the tea-baggers are so inflamed is because we are winning.”

With the issue he has positioned to be his crowning achievement as president at a crossroads, Barack Obama once again called on his former rival to help him follow through.
Former President Bill Clinton told a room full of Democratic Senators Tuesday that passing health care reform – which he failed to do 15 years ago – is not only a moral issue, but also “an economic imperative.”

Clinton argued that even “the most cold-hearted person” ought to support health care reform simply from an economic standpoint. He reminded Democrats of the political momentum their failure to pass reform in 1993 delivered the House of Representatives to the Republicans the following year.

“The point I want to make is: just pass the bill, even if it’s not exactly what you want,” Clinton told Democrats. “When you try and fail the other guys write history.”

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said Clinton described the ongoing tea party protests against the Democratic agenda as a sign his party was making progress.

Whitehouse quoted Clinton arguing: “The reason the tea-baggers are so inflamed is because we are winning.”

Clinton’s overall message was one the Obama administration has tried to make: not passing a bill is the worst thing Democrats could do.

“So it’s not important to be perfect here, it’s important to act, to move, to start the ball rolling, to claim the evident advantages that all these plans agree with and whatever they can get the votes for I’m gonna support,” Clinton said he told the senators. “I think it is good politics to pass this and to pass this as soon as they can. But I think the most important thing is it is the right thing for America. The worst thing to do is nothing.”
