Time for the GOP and Tea Partiers to Grow Up

Posted: Oct 19, 2009 9:54 AM
My Townhall column discusses the rise in tensions between the GOP and the Tea Partiers. 

If true and positive "change" is going to come to DC in the 2010 elections -- which means electing officials committed to common sense and fiscal sanity -- GOP leaders and Tea Partiers can't afford to waste time fighting with each other. 

No doubt both sides have legitimate gripes with the other.  But their differences with the government-loving, voter-ignoring Democrats are so much more profound -- and wouldn't it be a shame if, by fighting with each other, both sides squandered the opportunity to stop the Obama-led march to ever-bigger government?
