Not our system

San Luis ObispoOctober 9, 2013 

I figured out what TEA Party stands for: Terrorizing Everyone in America. TEA Party leaders have convinced John Boehner to strap on some dynamite, put his finger on the trigger and threaten to blow up the U.S. economy if President Obama and the Democrats don’t bow to their priorities. That is political terrorism, not democracy.

The GOP should work to win the Senate and House in the next election and the White House in 2016. Then they can advance their own policies and priorities. That’s our system. But by threatening to cause an economic meltdown if they don’t get their way, TEA Party Republicans are doing just the opposite.
