Going forward, the [Tea Party] movement will face some challenges. Will it become a legitimate third party or will it stay as an anti-Obama protest group? For now, these folks are scaring liberal America big time. Bill O’Reilly
Why do these people all believe that the Tea Party is strictly an anti-Obama movement? When even Fox doesn’t get it, we have a message problem.
I’m no Tea Party expert and I’ve been on the fringes of the movement – attending a few events and not joining or volunteering for any one close to home – but from what I have seen and read, the party has multiple issues and grievances with many politicians in both parties. The biggest issue is a return to the Constitution and rule of law. If Obama is guilty of not upholding his oath, then yes, he’s one of the party’s problems. There are dozens of republicans and democrats in office who have not stood by their oaths, as well.
Read the Contract From America and while you’re there, sign it. It spells out, in 10 points, very clearly what the Partiers want to see addressed and made right again.
There’s no denying that Obama is a big issue for them (us). He is unquestionably the most left president we have ever had. Yes, we had 8 years of Bush and too much spending and yes, it should not have happened and our Republican congress is heavily to blame for it. But we have been pushed to the left so far and so fast – and Obama has done this – that we are awake and not going to stand for it.
We need to reframe the message and make sure that it’s not all Obama, all the time. The left is writing the narrative and just like the Constitution, we need to take the story back!
