Tea Partiers Must Hang Tough

As for the Tea Party, from my vantage point, they seem to have been on Vacation since 2010! During the election, no one who spoke for the Republicans, and there were few, even mentioned Tea Party. I continued to hope they were working behind the scenes in fifth column fashion but saw no proof of it! As a matter of fact, they Democrats are on TV more often than commercials while Republicans, both during the campaign and now seem to be afraid of the TV Hosts. In short, They just seem to be afraid of everything. Even Peggy Noonan is writing that "we dodged a bullet when Romney didn't get elected! I assume she senses the weakness also.

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...
