Tea Partiers Must Hang Tough

You point out it was a silly gaffe and point to the other 74 answers you gave and the policies that you think will move the country forward. Would make me more willing to vote for a GOP candidate than "the mean MSM is covering us poorly". The problem is when you think Fox News is 'fair and balanced' then everything else is left wing, evil and not throwing softballs to candidates.

Now, suddenly, the Tea Party is everybody’s whipping boy.

Liberals, in the wake of the election, gloat about what they see as liberalism’s return to the mainstream and good riddance to the end of the Republican “extremists.”

And, despite the spin, which never stops in Washington, it is not accidental that four prominent Tea Party congressmen have been purged from key committee posts by Speaker John Boehner.

So as the Washington “establishment” cozies up to the mindset that America will go on no matter what and that a bloated, debt-ridden America can go on just fine as long...
