Liberal group forms “F*CK Tea” effort

BY Alex Pappas

A liberal group is attacking the Tea Party movement with a new project  called “F*CK Tea” to discredit the solutions offered by conservative activists. It is a three-tiered campaign that includes selling t-shirts and coffee mugs with the derogatory slogan on it.The group’s founder, Erica Payne, said the effort is intentionally edgy.“When you look at their world view, somebody has to say f—k that. That’s not the right direction to go at,” she said in an interview.

Tea party's growing money problem

BY Kenneth P. Vogel

Some leading tea party activists are concerned that their efforts to reshape American politics, starting with the 2010 elections, are being undermined by a shortage of cash that’s partly the result of a deep ambivalence within the movement’s grass roots over the very idea of fundraising and partly attributable to an inability to win over the wealthy donors who fund the conservative establishment.

Democratic candidates all but ignore their legislative successes

BY Janet Hook

Reporting from Washington — As Democrats fan out across the country to campaign for reelection this month, many are surprisingly quiet about their hard-won accomplishments — the major bills they have passed under President Obama.In an effort coordinated with the White House, congressional leaders are urging Democrats to focus less on bragging about what they have done — a landmark healthcare law, a sweeping overhaul of Wall Street regulation and other far-reaching policy changes — and more on efforts to fix the economy and on the perils of Republican control of Congress.

Vying to Be the GOP Outsider in Colorado

BY Alex Altman

It hasn't garnered the attention of incumbent Republican Senator Bob Bennett's ouster in Utah or conservative upstart Rand Paul's ascendancy in Kentucky. But the purest parable of this election cycle may be the race unfolding in Colorado's Republican Senate primary, which takes place Aug. 10.

Happy Birthday Milton Friedman, ‘Father of School Vouchers’

BY Matt Kibbe

Today, the late Noble-Prize winning economist and one of the greatest freedom fighter of our lifetime Milton Friedman would have celebrated his 98th birthday. By far, the most admired trait of Friedman was his presentation of the ideas of liberty. As one of the true geniuses of the 20th century, he was an excellent communicator who successfully explained complex economic theories in a simple manner. He was a spokesman for capitalism who inspired countless individuals through his intelligence and kindness.

BP helps both sides on climate

BY Ambreen Ali

There's one thing political rivals can agree on these days: BP is to blame.Activists on both sides of the energy debate have launched campaigns accusing their opponents of helping the oil company. They are trying to use public sentiment against the Gulf Coast oil spill to advance their cause."The two great motivators in terms of grassroots organizing are fear and anger," said Christopher Kush , who runs Soapbox Consulting and helps activists with political messaging.
