mmmm…some good stuff to blog about this morning… one of the GOP bigwigs, Republican Governor of Mississippi, Chairman of the Republican Governors Association (RGA) and former Chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC) Haley Barbour wrote a piece in the Wall Street Journal telling the GOP Establishment folks, in so many words, to STHU and show respect for the Tea Party voters and our endorsed candidates; particularly our candidates who won the primary races. That, in essence, the Tea Party grassroots movement doesn’t need the GOP, rather the GOP needs the Tea Party grassroots movement.
Governor Barbour points out that the Tea Party grassroots movement chose not to split the vote by running as a Political Party, rather to work within the Republican Party. That is very true. And, Sarah Palin is a prime example of a Republican working within the Republican Party who is a functioning member of the Tea Party Movement.
The message sent by Governor Barbour to the GOP establishment is they will not win not win a battle of wills over their Favorite Son RINOs with the Tea Party grassroots coalition.
Clearly, we who are part of the Tea Party coalition have demonstrated our strength and resolve in that matter by defeating GOP Favorite Son RINOs in this mid-term election cycle and we will not be told to shut up and sit down; not by the GOP Establishment and not by the Socialist Establishment.
The weight-throwing attitudes and behaviors of GOP Establishment Bigwigs (and their RINO-backing pundits and bloggers) leading up to and after RINO Mike Castle’s defeat by a Tea Party backed candidate, crystallized the war of wills between the RINO backing GOP Establishment and We The Tea Party People.
We have had enough of pompous political asshats trying to tell us what we can and can not do and we will cancel them like a postage stamp as they come up for re-election and by withholding contributions to GOP Establishment coffers.
In my book, it is already too late for Karl Rove and Charles Krauthammer is on thin ice. Rove made his bed and there he will stay as a GOP Establishment Whipping Boy of the Tea Party Voters.
These blowhards are now getting a serious lesson in 2010 reality: The Giant No Longer Sleeps and we won’t take crap from anyone on the left or right. We have the activist, financial, and voting clout to back that up.
Governor Barbour’s article:
In the course of our Republican primaries, tea party candidates prevailed on several occasions, sometimes defeating the so-called establishment candidate, as in Delaware. Some losing candidates and their supporters want to cry foul, and they are being egged on by a left wing eager to give its agenda a second chance by splitting the vote of those opposed to the Obama agenda. Without dividing the antistatist coalition, the left can’t win in November.
I urge Republicans not to help the left wing split our vote.
Governor Barbour is talking to the GOP Establishment and urging them to stand down in their attacks on winning primary Tea Party backed candidates, like Christine O’Donnell, cease their pontificating imperious attitudes towards the most powerful grassroots coalition in our lifetimes, the Tea Party, and to start show due respect to us. We won’t take it from Obama & Co and we won’t take it from them.
I advise the GOP Establishment to pay close attention to what Governor Barbour is telling them (and their pundit backers like Charles Krauthammer and bloggers like American Thinker) to take what he is saying seriously and back the hell off if they know what is good for them. Why? because we are more of a force to be reckoned with than they are.
