Not Dead And Not Even Dying

Tea Party (TP) members have been active in some beneficial manner since the day they were founded.  MainScream media types have been screaming and drooling with pronouncements of the premature death of the TPs.  All of the attention paid by the progressives was for naught, or very close to it.

TPers and those who support us have quietly, for the most part, worked with resolution knowing there is no hill insurmountable and no set goal unworthy.  We are still here and will be in spite of whatever the big dogs from any direction might throw at us.  Yes, we are here to stay around … Not play around!

The Daily Beast, a publication that ran stories at the beginning of 2012 about the demise of the Tea Party, has conceded the Tea Party is far from dead and has actually come “roaring back” after the 2012 elections.

David Freedlander wrote in the publication, which also recently harassed private citizens who donated to Sarah Palin’s political action committee, that the movement the mainstream media wrote off and the Republican establishment tried to get rid of is actually having a resurgence.

As evidence, he cites Texas Attorney General and Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott, who “once described his daily routine as going into the office, suing Barack Obama, and then calling it a day.” Freedlander notes Abbott has “sued the federal government 27 times in all” and a sign at his campaign announcement read, “Fast cars, firearms, and freedom–Endorsed by Greg Abbott.”

Freedlander mentions Republican Virginia Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli and Tom Emmer, who is the frontrunner to replace Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) in Congress.

He notes the popularity of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), much to the chagrin of  “Republican bigwigs decided that they would need to do something to prevent” the Tea Party and conservatives from “hijacking the primary process.”

As former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who moves Tea Party voters more than any other politician in primaries, has repeatedly said, the Tea Party, as Freedlander observes, is a movement “not without precedence on the American political landscape” from both sides.
