Mr. Boehner at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast this morning explaining who Tea Party Patriots are in response to a question about the new Tea Party Caucus started by Michele Bachmann. He comments to a roomful of people who appear to be beltway insiders that the people at the tea parties are just the tip of the iceberg.
Responding to a question about Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-MN) Tea Party Caucus, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) says although he declined to join the caucus, the political movement “should not be dismissed. “These folks are the tip of the iceberg,” says Boehner. “They represent the same values, concerns, frustration, anger and fear that you see from tens of millions of other Americans who aren’t on the streets yet.
This iceberg is what the thin-skinned Obama administration is tweaking about and trying to attack or gloss over at every possible opportunity knowing full well that the tea parties are the real hope for the future of the nation. The Tea Party is the movement of common sense where right is right and wrong is wrong; NOT…“by any means necessary”.
For any republican candidates that may be reading this post; better get plugged in or you will be left behind.
