It Was Nice Knowing You

February 9, 2010

Further evidence of Tea Party Co-Option?  Ron Paul has three primary opponents, all of whom “have ties to the anti-tax Tea Party movement”:

Tea Party associations aside, many of the challengers’ criticisms echo concerns of Paul’s past opponents: that he is too focused on his national ambitions; that his views are too extreme; that he doesn’t support the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; that he votes “no” on everything, including federal aid for his district after Hurricane Ike.

“The word I keep hearing is ‘ineffective,’ ” said Gay, a school business administrator. “This district is not really being represented as it could be.”

The Tea Party might want try to get its own movement back before it tries to take the country back.  I don’t like Ron Paul, but if there’s any incumbent Republican who should be safe from the Tea Partiers, it should be him.  Disappointing.
