The Tea Party 2.0

I had high hopes for the Tea Party as defenders of the Constitution. But since they've been mum about the Usurper and have given Joe Arpaio no support, I can't take them seriously. They also left their own Tea Party member Michele Bachmann hanging out to dry, instead of giving her support for the presidential nomination. They also treated another Tea Party member Allen West like a lost stepchild, instead of rising to his aid against the Obama conspiracy to unseat him. Obama even unconstitutionally funneled money to West's opponent out of Obama's own campaign war chest.

You attribute actions of the RINO leadership to the Tea Party. Like many Republican voters, you were fooled by political rhetoric. Less than 30% of the Republicans elected in 2010 voted to end the Solyndra corruption program of the Dept. of Energy. If they can't vote to end that, are they really Tea Party candidates?

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...
