    The Tea Party just shot themselves in the foot in 2012 and today.  If they even try to reorganize, they're just going to doom themselves in years to come.

    I don't see the Tea Party having the leverage they did anymore.

    Remember, we have brains.  Tea Party people don't.

      I'm just saying there are literally billions of dollars behind their efforts and they are making noises about "resurging."

      The problem the New Fair Deal aims to treat is also straight out of Mr. Obama’s 2012 playbook: fairness and ending the influence of special interests in Washington.

      “Tea party meets Occupy on Main Street,” Mr. Clancy calls it. “We disagree with the Occupyers on a lot of the solutions, but we agree with them on the diagnosis of the problem.”

        The Tea Party has already done damage to itself.  That's the problem.  They don't read and they don't believe in listening.  They're self-centered elitists who aren't real Americans and they're already going to lose elections.

        Meanwhile, Jim Graves recently announced he's running again to challenge Michelle Bachmann for re-election in Minnesota's 6th Congressional District.  Considering Bachmann was within a hair of being defeated for re-election last November, I think she and the Tea Party better watch their hides.  They aren't going to have a good November 2014.
