For beginners, the Republican Party was licking their chops after the 2010 mid-term elections when the Tea Party contributed 28 of the 39 seats they needed to take control of the House from the Democratic Party. They
literally won the House for the Republicans and since then Tea Party members have sought their rewards and have gotten it by fair or foul means.
The GOP seemed to have expected these people to come in and fall in line or at best be rational human beings but the
2010 win is like karma….. it is biting the Republicans in the butt. The party just does not know what to do with them, how to handle them or how to get rid of them. Classic case in point, the House Speaker John Boehner when you think he cannot look any less stupid, any more of a coward any more out of control of his caucus he does. Members of the Tea Party in the House hold Boehner where it hurts, applying pressure at will. No wonder his face wears a permanent scowl.
Up front, former U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) urged these ‘new-comers’ to “put on their boxing gloves and be sure not to be ‘co-opted by congressional leaders”. And put on their gloves they did but contrary to party’s wishes and hopes the gloved fists are being used to decimate/destroy their own party. This is a true case of “all that glitters is not gold” or “be careful for what you wish”.
the list goes on.
In comparison with Syria, the Tea Party which itself is a divided group boasts the SACs (Self Aggrandizing Clan)
sometimes led by Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and then by Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) the most transparently disgusting of them all, Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) and Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah). Then there is the group of
Partiers who are not showboating as the foregoing but just as dangerous. Three or four sects of Tea Partiers which these ‘leaders’ dumb down with every utterance, with every clown show.
“Tea Party voters are a pretty self-assured lot. They're 100 percent certain that if they stand by conservative principles (as they define them), scorning any compromises, a minority can rule the world”.

THE TEA PARTY A THORN IN THE BUTT OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
THREE OF GOP's SORE THUMBS...Yes, GOP has many thumbs and they are all sore!!!
government to drastically cut its size, its scope and government’s invasiveness in the lives of the American people. But hold on! Remember even if you do not agree with one’s opinions, ideas and ideals one can respect the individual for what he/she stands for if he/she holds these resolutely. But this Paul character (and a character he is) is straddling
between a tea party libertarian and at times convenient to him, he tries to appeal to the GOP establishment the group that he was so successful in running against in the 2010 mid-term elections. He now realizes that he needs to throw to the Establishment GOP members a bone of appeasement that would taste like he is on their side, supporting them but it is a bone that is transparently covered with the meat of manipulation, and exploitation at very least. Why do individual players in the GOP game think they are the only ones endowed with good sense?

THIS SAYS IT ALL
is just a greedy, self-serving group seeped in hatred for the President and love of self at the expense of the country.
The Tea Party is a thorn, a spike and a prickle in the butt of the Republican Party. Democrats could say ‘keep on doing what you are doing Republicans’ if it were not that this group’s actions is bringing the country to its knees, destroying what hard working, well-meaning, logical, insightful Americans past and present have and continue to build.
At times the situation seems hopeless but it is not. What can be done to this group of buffoons, Americans have the most powerful ‘weapon’ to surgically remove them from the management of the country! The power of the vote!!!
