The DNC, GOP & Tea Party

-
Roanoke Times, 8-1-10, Pg Horiz 1: The GOP takes its tea. The tea party movement is rapidly becoming just another faction of the national Republican Party.
-
Apparently this article was published in concert and harmony with Tim Kaine’s DNC major initiative to discredit and denigrate both the GOP and the Tea Party membership. Two birds with one stone, so to speak.
-
Kaine has published HIS Republican Tea Party Contract ON America

He has also launched a media campaign to promote his definition of the GOP, hoping to convince the undecided and moderate voters that the TeaPartyized GOP is way too radical for their support. This new ad campaign hopes to link the GOP to fringe elements of the Tea Party based on selected statements made by persons identified with the Tea Party. It’s guilt by association that the liberals usually rail against; not this time of course!

This tactic by the Democrats may have some success. The Tea Party has in many districts become a major and very visible influence on local Republican politics and the behavior and rhetoric of some individuals are cause for political discomfort by moderates and independents and this could make a difference in an off-year election in which the Democrats (the party of the poor) have more than double the campaign funds of the Republicans.
-
A contributor to this situation is that the Tea Party seems to focus on finding candidates for leadership and office who have no significant political history and therefore have not been adequately vetted by political experience and are inexperienced with dealing with the public and media. In many cases they are making statements from the position of being “mad as hell and aren’t going to take it anymore”! Seldom does this frame of reference result in good public outcomes for Republicans. However, it has always worked extremely well for the “fight, fight, fight” democrats of labor and minorities and special interests.
-
An example of the DNC-strategy is the Republican-TeaParty candidate, Ms Angle, to oppose Harry Reid in Nevada. She received one-half million dollars from the National Tea Party Express and an unknown “undercover” amount from the DNC who view her as “most beatable” of the leading GOP primary candidates. She has made numerous inappropriate public statements that have fed directly into the DNC’s playbook and polls and pundits indicate that she will likely loose to Harry Reid, one of the most ardent and powerful supporters of the Obamanation movement.
-
The 8-2-10 Roanoke Times indicates on Pg 1 the stress and panic the DNC (Tim Kaine et al) is experiencing with 65 House seats at some level of risk in November.
The tension is further on display in the Pg 12 Editorial titled: The fringe takes over (the Republican Party).
This begins with a defense of the New Black Panther Party militants at a voting place in which the white house has directly intervened to squash the prosecution of Phila black panther members with weapons who participated in voter intimidation directly in front of a voting place door. Click on the link for great pictures and video of the subjects that the RT Editors view as nice gentlemen who weren’t intimidating anyone. They were just there to vote.

-
The editors then get back to the New-DNC-Kaine party line advertisement:
“Republicans have had a hard time isolating the fringe elements of “their” party – perhaps because the fringe is becoming the party”.
-
All this Roanoke Times stuff is of course just the start of tens of thousands of dollars of free advertising they will do for King Obama and Prince Perriello. Why burn-up campaign funds when your friends in the media have unlimited opportunity to blow your horn and trash you adversaries with no accountability or responsibility or liability. What a deal!
