    Has anyone determined the motive? This obiviously was a planned attack.

    No, no one's blamed the Tea Party people. Good grief. This has nothing to do with the President either. It sounds like a group of independent crazies. I do wonder why the alleged perpetrators are from all over the country. Are they students?

    No doubt, the Obama Media Complex (OMC) will focus the blame on the TeaParty. I can't WAIT for November...

    Ah yes, more violence and vandalism committed by the LEFT to protest something they don't like. And they say that the tea partiers are the dangerous ones!! I bet Obama would approve of the actions done by these 11 people.

    I'll bet it was those notorious Tea Party people! Or maybe George Bush did it?
