2012, its not about Obama.
16 months before the election there should be excitement and feverish activity. Maybe the problem is the MSM controls the perception of what the public sees. If there is activity let alone excitement at the approaching fight, the MSM outlets won’t show it. They will distort it if possible, but not report it. If a million Tea Party protesters marched to DC, picked up the White House and threw it into the Potomac they would run another story that the Tea Party won’t be a factor in 2012.
I think the Tea Party will not be a big issue in Obama’s re-election. I think that because most Tea Party groups are resisting organizing nationally, or creating a central committee. Is it enough to act locally by going after the worst, the most egregious Congressional candidates? Doesn’t seem that would that stop Obama in 2012. But what if we say that whats going to happen in the national election for president is going to happen, and citizens that support the Tea Party should concentrate on fixing congress. I don’t see any way that the tea parties can go after Obama and remain the loose local groups that they are. What the Tea Party has shown that its best at, is getting more conservative candidates nominated and elected. Its all about changing the balance in Congress in 2012. Especially in the Senate, if Obama gets two more Supreme Court appointments of his choosing, he won’t care what happens in Congress. He will have won.
Obama wasn’t the architect of the terrible legislation passed by the 110th and 111th Congress he was the front man but the man is not a leader, not a legislator. The job of stopping him is going to be the job of one person, one man or one woman. Its probably better that that person not be tied to the Tea Party.
