    Why did your story give so much air time – and let him talk on air essentially unchallenged – to Alan Keyes while he was saying things that were certifiably untrue, like questioning the president's citizenship? Why not air the fact (to him) that it's been proved beyond any doubt that his, just like us, an American? Why air this dead issue at all, because that's their goal, to repeat the fallacy and hope it catches on? Please - Jim and everyone at CNN - don't abet this crime!

    I am a member of the Tea Party Movement and just an FYI for you there are as many Democrats as Republicans involved in the movement. This is not a racist movement Mike because there are many people from many different nationalities involved. We are Americans that want to stand together to take our country back from the out of control government. No one has claimed Bush was not culpable of wrong doing. It is the government as a whole and the damage the government has caused over the last few decades. Give up on using the race card it is out! I am black and I stand behind the Tea Party and what they stand for.

    CNN you must continue to help stop these people. They don't fit your idea of a "true" american. They are NOT liberals or socolists or marxists or communists nor do they openly hate their country. CNN no wonder you went after them and repeated all the DNC talking points about them starting months ago.

    This movement is not about spending or big government. If that were the case, these same people would have been outraged over Bush's deficit spending and blowing the surplus that Clinton left him. For them, this is simply about the nightmare of waking up every morning to the reality that a black man is president of the United States. I don't see any black, brown or yellow faces at these rallies, and their protest posters often have a racially derogatory theme. When they state that they want "America" back, they are referring to a way of life which they fear is quickly disappearing. I'd like to see CNN dig a little deeper into this so called movement especially in terms of their funding and affilations with hate groups. I grew up in the 1960's and saw how voices were silenced by those who feared social change and preached hate. Overt racism is no longer fashionable, so they have resorted to emasculating Mr.Obama and creating an environment ripe for the unthinkable. Barack was wrong...there are two Americas and the divide only seems to be getting deeper. This is the real story.

    It amaze's me how soon we forgot who actually put us in the situation. THE BUSH ERA. Were where was the tea party when President Bush lied to us over and over. But, people forget and do not have the patientice to wait. Things do not happen overnight. I feel that some may be upset due his color and that is so sad. At least he is trying and I don't see anyone coming up with any ideas in the congress or senate except to give themselves bonus's. I would love for the congress and senate try and live like the middle class and lower, that way maybe they could see what me do and try to survive. But, also remember that we as American's also caused this situation becuase people wanted to live like the jone's and not within their means. So, I say to the Tea Party, give us some idea's how we can fix all of these problems in one year. And were where they when President Bush lied to us repeatedly. I am neither a democrat or republican, liberal or conserative. I wish that there was an indepantent party.
