The Tea Party 2.0

Scottie, you are conflating TEA Party people with Christians. Akin and Mourdock espoused well founded, unassailable Christian beliefs. The war, to the left is against Christ, not the TEA Party. Conservative pundits (all of them, sadly including Rush) denounced Christianity in their refusal to allow, for political reasons, Akin and Mourdock to voice their beliefs. They helped establish and endorsed a religious test for public service. Nothing has been the same since.

Akin and Mourdock should have been better prepared and not so easily tricked into clumsy statements. Even Romney was tripped while trying to walk a tight-rope are carefulness.

A new poll by Rasmussen Reports found that only 8% of Americans now identified themselves as members of the Tea Party.  While that still equals more then 25 million people, this is a startling drop from the 24% who answered same question just 4 years ago.  Of course, the liberal media in this country were first to publicize the poll results.  I could almost hear the chorus of left wing politicos singing, “Ding Dong the Tea Party is Dead,” while giving each other high fives.

Why would someone identify himself or herself as a Tea Party member these days with a label...
