    The Tea Party is Now More Powerful than President Obama
    Activism; Posted on: 2010-09-27 17:40:48 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]
    The Tea Party needs to know all of the facts and troubles with America, and not just the Palin/ Beck watered down version of the GOP (1).
    Who would have predicted this a year ago? Certainly not the complacent army of White House spin doctors who have failed to grasp, let alone acknowledge, the momentous political transformation that is sweeping America. CNN’s latest poll  confirms that the Tea Party movement has more political clout than the President of the United States in influencing voters during this November’s mid-terms. While just 37 percent of Americans are more likely to vote for a candidate if backed by Barack Obama, a far larger 50 percent will vote for a Tea-Party endorsed candidate.

    As CNN puts it:

    A solid majority of all Americans — 56 percent — say that Obama has fallen short of their expectations. As a result, the president is not in a position to help struggling Democratic candidates; only 37 percent of likely voters say they are more likely to vote for a congressional candidate backed by Obama.


    (1) If you doubt the Tea Party’s exact potential, it’s nightmare scenario in the minds of our enemies, all you have to do is read their own words.
