Chuckie Schumer Still Obsessing Over the Tea Party

Posted by on Jan 23, 2014 at 7:38 am

Wait, we thought the Tea Party was dead? So why is this chump speaking to a group bankrolled by George Soros trying to convince the Tea Party that the evil Koch Brothers are bad for them?

Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the Senate Democrats’ political guru, has a plan to poison the Tea Party by driving a wedge between its rich funders and its blue-collar rank and file.

Schumer, one of the Democrats’ most influential strategists, will argue in a major speech on Thursday that super-wealthy Tea Party donors have hijacked the grassroots movement that grew out of the economic anxiety of the 2008 financial collapse to suit their pro-big business agenda.

He’ll lay out a blueprint for how Democrats can exploit what he argues is a weakness in the opposition in the address at the Center for American Progress, a pro-Democratic think tank founded by John Podesta, who just joined President Obama’s inner circle at the White House.

Schumer will argue that Democrats must defend popular government programs such as extended unemployment benefits and student loan subsidies to persuade Tea Party voters that they can benefit from federal programs.

“He will suggest specific issues for Democrats to focus on in 2014 in order to remind the Tea Party and its supporters that government can be a force for good,” his office said.

Good luck with that, Chuckles. Considering 72% of Americans say the greatest threat is big government, peddling that snake oil is a tall order.

Schumer contends powerful Tea Party patrons such as David H. Koch and Charles Koch have directed the anger of many independent voters toward the government to ease federal regulation of their multibillion-dollar industries.

“Wealthy Tea Party leaders have convinced Tea Party rank and file and many other Americans that anti-government ideology is the answer to their problems — but many Tea Partiers and sympathizers support government programs — Democrats must exploit the difference,” Schumer’s office said in a statement announcing the speech.

    Ol’Chuckie has a ccw. I think he should be forced to give it up, because of mental derangement.

    Absolutely the most dangerous place in the United States is between Chuck Schumer and a television camera.

    Schumer’s’ statements are 110% designed to advance Hillary for president. He’s attempting to legitimatize (not legally, but in the minds of the public) the continued thwarting of conservative and Tea Party groups in their attempts to have a voice in the system in what promises to be a very tight, hard-fought election cycle. Bill Clinton is obviously “calling in a marker” from Schumer, and Schumer is dutifully complying, as he’s in a totally safe senate seat. The Clinton’s have the dirt on him for sure and Obama and Holder certainly appreciate the “cover” as well.
