“Weak Tea? 5 Signs the Tea Party is floundering”


NBC NEWS

By Adam Garnett

Is the party over for the Tea Party?

The Washington Post‘s Dana Milbank penned a piece Wednesday, in which he outlined recent events suggesting an atrophy of the Tea Party’s muscles in Republican circles. Here are the five developments within the past week Milbank used to make his case:

  • Last Thursday: At the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a possible presidential candidate, scolds fellow Republicans for obsessing over cutting budgets and says, ”We’ve got to stop being the stupid party.”
  • Friday afternoon: Sensing a possible national backlash, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (another likely 2016 Republican presidential hopeful) comes out against a GOP electoral college-rigging plan hatched by the state’s Republican-controlled legislature. Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder have since distanced themselves from similar legislative proposals–which many Tea Partiers endorse–in their states.
  • Friday night: Word leaks out that Fox News and Tea Party hero Sarah Palin have decided to part ways after a three-year marriage. How the mighty have fallen.
  • Saturday: Reports surface that House Speaker John Boehner made a speech to the Ripon Society, a Republican public policy organization, in which he called some members of his caucus “hard heads.”
  • Monday: A bipartisan group if senators, including rising star (and Tea Party favorite) Marco Rubio, unveils a comprehensive immigration reform plan. The plan doesn’t focus just on enforcement, but allows for a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants living in the country.

Despite signs Republicans and their supporters are growing wary about the Tea Party’s grip on the GOP, Milbank told guest host Michael Smerconish on Wednesday night’s Hardball that the Tea Party’s ultimate demise does not appear to be imminent.

The Tea Party itself isn’t over but what I think you have is some of the more sober revelers in the Tea Party heading for the exits because they realize this thing is getting rowdy and police are going to be showing up and it’s going to get really ugly,” Milbank said. ”People who have national aspirations, who are interested in 2016, who realize the party has to change are growing a bit of bravery right now and saying, ‘we can’t continue to tolerate this.’”  FULL  ARTICLE

Ultrasound Politics: VA Gov. Bob McDonnell Upset at Being Seen as ‘Vaginal Probe’ Governor


WOMEN, DON’T FORGET RECENT HISTORY

Bob McDonnell, Welcome to your post Transvaginal World


WOMEN, DON’T FORGET RECENT HISTORY

Mitt Romney, Women Will Not Vote for Bob McDonnell as VP!


BOB McDONNELL

“Mr. Trans-Vaginal Probe”

We all remember the back-and-forth in Virginia over their requiring candidates for abortion to be to physically penetrated….violated with a cold instrument…to satisfy some “Bob McDonnell Law.”  Yesterday, Bob McDonnell, Gov. of Virginia appeared on Chuck Todd’s talk and opinion show on MSNBC at 9AM [“Morning Rundown”].  Chuck tried to get Bob to talk about his actions in his office’s War on Women which has dropped out of the news.  Bob wants that sad chapter to be forgotten (or else  he wasn’t wearing his “big girl panties”) and he shied away from discussing the matter. He hopes so much that Mitt Romney will pick him for VP that he is mounting a campaign to improve his reputation.  Governor, you are wasting good money.  You signed an anti-women bill into law in Virginia.  You are tainted meat.  Women will not vote for Mitt Romney with you as his choice for vice president!  Be real!

By Sam Stein

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Some of the leading Republican governors are coming to President Barack Obama’s defense against charges from former Senator Rick Santorum that the president’s push for universal higher education amounts to intellectual and political snobbery.

Speaking to reporters outside of the White House after a meeting between the nation’s governors and the president, Gov. Bob McDonnell went out of his way to praise the administration’s education policy, calling it one of the few areas of bipartisan consensus. He added that the pursuit of a college education was something that all lawmakers should push students to consider. MORE
