Wait, we though the Tea Party was finished and had no influence? Guess unleashing the IRS on them hasn’t produced the desired results just yet.
Democrats lost big in this year’s midterm elections — thus prompting Sen. Chuck Schumer to go after the conservative wing of the Republican Party.
In a speech at the Center for American Progress on Thursday, the New York Democrat will argue that the Tea Party has a “fundamental flaw,” hoping to driving a wedge between it and wealthy GOP donors, according to a preview of his speech given to Business Insider by a Senate aide.
“However there is a glaring weakness — one very weak link in the Tea Party’s armor — which is an inherent contradiction within the Tea Party that I believe can be exposed to greatly weaken their hold on the policy debate,” Schumer will say.
“The fundamental weakness in the Tea Party machine,” Schumer is expected to say, is the “stark difference” between the elite leadership and donors of the Tea Party movement and the average Tea Party follower.
We think he’s going insane, which is a good thing. Just keep it up, Schmucky.
Schumer will propose Democrats’ next move is to loudly and continually repeat “we believe government is often a necessary force for good” to contradict how Republicans get away with making government the “bogeyman.”
The American people have overwhelmingly rejected these big government clowns, so by all means double down on your inane tactics. Five years demonizing the Tea Party and where has it gotten you?
