Bad media coverage!
Notice how talking heads, when blaming the Republican controlled House for blocking Obama change, often blame “The Tea Party” Republicans. Michele Bachmann’s Tea Party Caucus totals 61 members of the 241 Republicans in the House after the 2010 election. Anyone familiar with the base 10 number system can be very certain that 61 can not control 241. Not even if they were all school yard bullies in their younger years. Anytime you hear anyone make this comment blaming the Tea Party Republicans is being dishonest, lying, or revealing their bias. These people should be ignored – especially if you are NOT a Tea Party Member. We who share the ideals of the Tea Party have been ignoring such people for years. 2010 showed that we, and like minded people, have a very strong effect on party politics. We would be happy to welcome Democrats as well but there aren’t many centrist Democrats left in Congress.
