Angle vs. Reid: the Tea Party's big gamble

(CNN) – We are kicking off the fall political season with a new series, "Make Room… for the Tea Party". The latest CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll shows that voters are mixed on the political movement. 40% of respondents say they have a negative opinion of the Tea Party, while 36% have a positive opinion. Today, we are taking a closer look at Nevada where Sharron Angle, a Tea Party favorite, is the Republicans’ hope for taking down Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Our Jim Acosta has the story.

    Why not use Article 1, Section 8, of the Constitution to create the money needed to get the economy rolling? Skip the banks and let the Treasury Department put money where its needed. There is no place in the
    Constitution that says the banking system has the right to skim the cream off of all money milk.

    Angle has the wrong angle if she and her group are put in power they will destroy America as we know it. Corporations and the top 2% will run our country down in the name of GREED. We need checks and balances that is what made of great not do what ever we want.

    Reid's reign as speaker of the house is done! His political actions supporting the Democratic agenda speak for themselves. I will give him credit for helping our disabled veterans but that alone does not overide the damage he has done to American 's way of life following the Obama socialist progressive wingnut dog philosphy.
    Harry has failed to even be of value to his own state of Nevada. He let the president bad mouth Las Vegas without comment, destroying its meeting management functions and tourism. Those of us who have conducted large national organizational meetings know that there are several locations like Las Vegas and Orlando that are 1/2 the price of hosting a meeting in Pittsburg. Airfare and room costs are far less expensive in a major tourist destination than just another city.
    go Angle!!!!

    The Tea Party is filled with true patriots, just like our founding fathers, except they don't own people. Well, not as many do, I think.
