For the second consecutive Republican Presidential Debate, the audience created the most memorable moment. Last week the GOP audience cheered rabidly in support of Rick Perry's record number of executions. Last night at the Tea Party sponsored* debate the members of the audience cheered and literally yelled out support for allowing an uninsured man to die.
This is the Tea Party, this is the base of the Republican Party, and this is the group driving the Presidential campaign and they are cheering the death of the uninsured. No candidate spoke out against their cheers during the debate.
*I thought the Tea Party was a movement wholly removed from the Republican Party? They always claim to be non-partisan. I'm glad to see they dropped the charade.
