Tea Party, I Hardly Knew Ye

To the Tea Party, I Hardly Knew You.
I was hoping this time it was going to be different. No, I’m not talking about the fortieth vote to derail ObamaCare. I’m talking about the whole Tea Party movement. I really was. The Tea Party seemed a common sense concoction. Pressure the Republican Party to adhere to its principles. Or something like that.
Principles, ethics, whatever it takes. I won’t bring it up again, why waste time…
Anyways, what happened to the Tea Party? Some say a bunch of racists, others say the last hope of our civilization. Both sides are wrong, the Tea Party isn’t a bunch of racists, but they are also too late to save anything.
What could of been! But instead of pressuring the GOP to reform. They instead wanted to reform government, and we all know that isn’t going to happen.
They could of, anticipating the probable snafus, lodged their protest to ObamaCare in the first place, allowed it to quietly take place, and be the wise old souls who are ready to take on more moralistic crusades within government. Sorry.
Nope. Forty votes later, ObamaCare is here and we may be seeing the end of the Tea Party’s effectiveness. But then again, the Republicans need them to retain any image whatsoever of being class indifferent.
When there is so much going wrong, I gotta think they could of moved on a while ago and been in a much better position when something does eventually go wrong again.
Now, even the benefit of the doubt is gone. For me anyways.
