Is the Party over?


The Tea Party’s antiestablishment posture helped propel it to power. That same posture will cost the movement some congressional seats. Tea Party lawmakers are being targeted for elimination by their own party, as old-guard Republicans use the Census-mandated redistricting process to erase seats won by last year’s upstarts, the National Journal reports. Tea Party groups have failed to even organize on the issue in some states. In others, they have geared up for the fight only to realize that they are behind the curve.

One thought on “Is the Party over?

  1. Tea party members have been classified by the liberal media as extreme and/or stupid. It is vital for the movement to stay focused on its original motivation and not get side tracked by other issues (i.e. pro-life, birthers, etc.) Other issues may be important, but they are not the basis of the movement. Over taxation and reduction of government size/control are the main issues. These are the issues on which the party should be focused.
