"A year ago, the tea party movement looked like an irresistible wave sweeping through the Republican Party...But in Tuesday's Iowa caucuses, the three candidates who hewed closest to the tea party line — Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich — sank straight to the bottom of the pack."
I have been documenting since its inception how the "tea party" was a fiction, bought and paid for by the rich, to make people believe that large numbers of Americans really wanted to have their stake in our country destroyed so the rich could have more. It was useful in creating an atmosphere of hatred against Obama, but now that it's time to actually try to put someone in the White House, the likes of the Koch brothers are certainly not going to trust people who might actually believe the lies they manufactured. No, they are going to go with the very rich corporate vulture who is one of them, and can be counted on to act accordingly.
No more tea parties unless Obama wins the 2012 election, and then we can count on them being trotted out again to do the bidding of their masters.
