Yesterday  Thomas  Hurt  (  Washington  Times )  answered   what  impact  the  TEA  Party  would  have  on  the  upcoming  elections.    Mr.  Hurt  was  not  denigrating  us  when  he  referred  to  the  movement  as  the  “Rodney  Dangerfield”  of   politics.  He  was   making  the  point  that  in  spite  of   the  number  that  identify  themselves  as   supporters  of  the  TEA  Party  the  republican  party  establishment  still  does  not  show  us  much  respect.  What  do  we  do  about  it ?

We  need  an  effective  strategy  . More  are  coming  around  to  recognizing  we  must  take  the  fight  to  the  party  establishment  if  we  are  to  capitalize  on  our  momentum  and  numbers.  We  will  lose  the  very  momentum should we continue to  wait.

Last  week  frustration  surfaced  with  many  of  the  republican  freshmen  elected  in  2010 ( with  our  support )  who   supported   the  debt  ceiling  increase . These  tepid  freshmen  argued  they  couldn’t  shut  the  government  down,  soldiers  wouldn’t  be  paid,  citizens  wouldn’t  get  their  Social  Security  checks,  etc,.

These   fears  are  not  true.  Government  has  adequate  funds  to continue  paying   priority  items  such  as  military  and  social  security.  I  wonder  what  these  same  freshmen’s  response  would  be  if  someone  asked   them  what  are  we  going  to  do  when  another  ratings  downgrade  of  Treasuries  occur or  when  interest  rates  spike  at  the  first   unsubscribed  Treasury  auction ? What  is  their  plan  when   interest  costs  of  servicing  this  debt  swallows  us ?

Crisis  requires  action.  Another  example  of  feckless  cowards  who  shun   bucking  party  leadership,  who’s  only  interest  is  in retaining  power.

If  republicans know  there  will  be  consequences ,  they  will act.  Until  then  they  kick  the  can  down  the  road,  at  our  nations  peril,   and  we  remain  the  “Rodney  Dangerfield”  of  American  politics.

    Congress has an approval rating of 14% (RCP Average) And most American's don't know they passed CISPA last night,,, that should cost them another three or four..

    There's probably 20,000 or more conservative news/political websites in the the US with a combined reach that numbers in the 10s of millions– It wouldn't take much of a block to muck up the schemes of both parties– 60 or 100 more than are there now. It's time to forget about the GOP

    We saved Nixon, after Read My Lips we came out in force and helped Gingrich get his Contract- If not for us the GOP would have been extinct after the beating they took in 2008. Each time we save them, they screw us.. Time to put a stop to it

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
