GOP Afraid of Tea Party?

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by Landis82, Jan 25, 2011.

  1. Why on Earth would the GOP and the likes of John Boehner and Mitch McConnell allow Michelle Bachmann to speak in response to the President's State of the Union Address?

    This is absurd.
    What is the GOP afraid of.... NOT letting Bachmann speak???

    It's now OFFICIAL.
    The GOP has gone down the tubes.
  2. The GOP is terrified of a third party run in 2012 by the tea party for president.

    They know that 20% of their base is whacked out, and would vote for Palin or someone like her...which would hand the election to Obama.

  3. Bachman ostensibly represents the Teaparty more than the GOP.
    To have her respond after the Republican response more than implies they're on some removed margin which further suggests fringe. Afterall the teaparty is driven by Fox and Limbaughs needs to generate profits for their handlers more than any vision
    for American that has good faith as its goal. Bachman is sitting on the perch at the county fair dump tank after the two venerable
    parties addresses.

    the only thing that is "official" or obvious is that it is you guys who are worried about the tea party.
  5. Oh yes, the dems are so afraid of a strong third party windbagger candidate...

  6. Apparently, John Boehner sure isn't.
    When asked if he watched Michelle Bachman's "response", the House Speaker said,
    "No, I have other obligations." :D
  7. Teaparty knocked 63 Democrats from their seats.

    Remember the most important issue to a typical politician is, at any costs, keep their job.
