It is true that Tea Party followers will be disappointed with the outcome of the Republicans they elected. I think deep down inside their souls they were well aware of it.
Hate is a mental disorder. Hate is a form of insanity. The problem is that the Tea Party followers were so riled up by hate fomented by Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, Right Wing Talk Radio, FoxNews, and others in the Right Wing Echo chamber, they were unable to see that they were voting not only against their own economic interest but their families’ interest, and the country’s interest.
The President will not allow the new Congress to inflict severe damage on the Progressive policies that will actually benefit most of those in the Tea Party. The concern is that since unemployment is likely to be high during the next election cycle because of systemic issues in our economy, Republicans may be effective in continuing to blame Democrats.
One would hope that Democrats have learned from this election that they must be in continuous contact with the American population providing factual information, refuting the barrage of Republican and Right Wing lies and misinformation aggressively, and fielding good candidates even in districts that are unlikely to be won.
The Tea Party will be very disappointed in 2012. If Democrats do the appropriate leg work and educate the American citizens on their policies and how it materially affects them, they will garner support of sufficient voters from the Tea Party that have genuine concerns about the direction of the country.
