Tea Party Conservatives = Republican Party… Where’s The Match?

I’d hoped we would see a little less of the ‘us and them’ mentality as we moved closer to the election cycle. I’ve underestimated the enmity that some ‘Tea Baggers’ and Patriots have for some of who they see as the Republican old guard and an echo of the Bush extravagance years.


Washington, April 15, 2010

It has translated to a take-no-nonsense attitude from the beginning by the Patriot movement. If you’re Conservative and you stand for God, country and family, you’ll find a very big ‘blanket’ out there. Americans have felt like they have been lied to and deceived by our government and our politicians. It’s like having a close relative and then finding out he’s ripping you off, it doesn’t take very long for the shock to turn into anger, and this government has been massively gorging itself since the day Obama took the office. That’s a lot of rip-off.

See, what happened was that the American People got it. They shouldn’t have, they were supposed to be too stupid and self absorbed. But the message that was getting out was coming through Conservative talk radio and the Conservative blogosphere, not from the LSM (lame stream media) that had finally gone so far left as to be indistinguishable from the DeMarxist masters at whose feet they wish to lie.

The Tea Party was as surprisingly uniform as it was almost instantaneous. The whole movement sprang into being in less than a month, it has been growing by leaps and bounds and hasn’t looked back once. A nationwide poll of citizens who associate themselves with the various patriot groups would be in the millions.

Republicans have to bear in mind that there’s still a good deal of skepticism and mistrust out there. The Conservative willingness to trust has been strained to the max by a Republican party that was welded to its roots in the past and failed, in fact, to grasp the strength and universal appeal of the citizen groups. Now we have to find a way to welcome the New Conservative Republican Party.

The Republican leadership has got to get the word that much of the Patriot Movement is a no Rino zone. This is borne out by the grass roots backing of Conservatives in local and state races all over the nation. A lot of grassroots people are bent behind the support thrown at John McCain, who they rightfully see as a Rino of the the first rank. Respect his service we do. His politics stink. Supporting McCain may cost a portion of patriot support.

Romney has been off in a spin cycle after his foolish apparent attempt to separate his ill-founded Massachusetts single payer health care from the Obamacare bill and then defending his reasons for it. Further, listening to some of the other things Romney has said and some of the other supposed Republican leaders, its sounding like they’d like to make accommodations on certain issues. They should be fairly warned… the Patriots and Republicans out here are not in the mood to be afflicted with more Rino divisiveness and legislative self-interest.

The Republican party has some proving to do. We’re looking for Conservative leadership. If the party establishment doesn’t get the Conservative message they’ll be left behind.

Romney would made a good Czar Appointment

Romney has good Business experience, and would make a good Cabinet appointee or Czar, but I'm not sure for what party yet.  He would make an excellant Business Advisor for a President, something "O" doesn't seem to bother with.  Everyone is getting tired of his "Staged" events and Phony audiences simulating "Real" Americans.

Scott Brown's performance as a Senator may give us more indication of what me might expect from Romney in the future.   Brown may be seen as a temperature guage for how Republican you can be and still come from Massachusetts.  Just because the Democrats left their Kennedy politics behind doesn't mean Republicans want to leave their Reaganism behind.  

You can "Repeal & Replace" or Romney in '12, but not both

I actually agree with Skippy about Romney ... if he is the GOP nominee in 2012, you can kiss "Repeal & Replace" goodbye. Mitt simply has too much HCR baggage. Like Kerry in '04, he would not be a credible spokesperson since he "was for reform before he was against". If the economy is bad enough 2.5 years from now, he could still beat Obama. But strong, consistent opposition to ObamaCare would not and could not be a central part of his platform.

I always knew Tea Partiers hated RINOs. Thanks for confirming this and confirming the lie that Tea Partiers are non-partisans. It's just a big, loud, extreme conservative-fronting Potemkin village. Tea Partiers representing themselves to be true Americans and Patriots, but they're just another radical conservative group dressed up in period clothing. Most RINOs are fiscally conservative and socially liberal, of course that would offend Skip's little party. In a real movement, it would be about one thing only, but the Tea Party is not a movement.

A Lounger passes judgement from a distance

Obviously never been to a Tea Party or the Reagan Library ?
The DNC hates the Tea Party exactly because it is a Grass Roots Movement.
Only BIG Government Communists/Marxist control freaks need be concerned with the Tea Party. We're coming to get you fired, from the School board level on upwards, county, state, Federal.
A purge is coming.

Gee, "O" California speech interrupted by hecklers ?

The Gay Interrupt, instead of the Tea Party  ?   Gee, this must be a misprint.

The Left is becoming their own Projection of the Tea Party........
