Today’s established Republican Party is tiptoeing around in fear.
Perhaps it is because the people of the Tea Party are hiding behind corners and bushes, jumping out and yelling, “Boo!”
At least it seems like it is the case.
You would think that the people who identify with the Tea Party were like the Wicked Witch of the East, and Senators and Congressman like Mitch McConnell and John Boehner are gunning to drop a house on them.
Officials like these and the mainstream media are out to paint a picture of the breakdown of civilization whenever Tea Party backed candidates are mentioned. Just let Sarah Palin utter the simplest of sentences and chaos reigns in the land.
Of course, when it comes to backbone, the Republican leadership is in short supply. They are more afraid of being called a racist or an independent thinker than anything else. They want to play nice, rather than stand strong.
So, in the spirit of “some of my best friends are Tea Partiers,” John Boehner has come out with his huge participation and knowledge case.
He has claimed to have attended hundreds of Tea Party events in his state, but only four can be confirmed. When challenged, this statement changed from attending hundreds of events to simply talking to hundreds of members.
This experience had made him an expert on the ebb and flow of the average Tea Partier.
That’s good to know. He has called them basically simple, and patronized their efforts as “bringing energy to the process.” I guess it isn’t too hard to figure out such simpletons, but it doesn’t explain the threat level that has been assigned to such “ordinary folk.”
Of course, it could just be that he can’t stand anyone with new ideas or a possible backbone.
No one knows for sure if the Speaker was directly involved, but an independent candidate that is running for the seat Boehner holds in his home state has lost his job at Cedarville University in Ohio.
The college stated specifically that his commercial criticizing the Speaker was the cause for his dismissal.
Politics is a dirty business, and like war, all is fair.
There is no reason to run a political race if one side is not allowed to state their views in a way that is favorable to them.
It appears that the political process is in terrible peril. It doesn’t bode well for the state of freedom either.
It appears that the deterioration of America is well underway and anarchy is on the horizon.
I suppose that is why the “Establishment” is so afraid of American Patriots, ordinary, simple people and those who choose to think for themselves.
