I asked the question in one of my posts recently ,"What happens now that the November elections are over..." Now after the successful election results for the republicans a somewhat surprising disturbing circumstance is occuring between theTea Party backed new representatives and the republican party leaders. The disturbing circumstance thats occuring is surprising in the fact that the republican party and the Tea Party supposedly share the same goals of striving for a more conservative government and a turn from the Obama democrat leftist driven agendas. This union between the Tea Party's newly elected representatives and the republican members in Washington should have been a happy marriage of equals working together in perfect harmony but as its turning out all isn't going so well. The question, one that has sometimes caused disolution of a marriage arguing about who is going to be the head of the family is what just might be an unsolveable problem for the republican party. For example, "Bachmann bid for GOP leadership gets cool reaction" (AP)
"WASHINGTON – Self-proclaimed Tea Party Leader Michele Bachmann's bid for a top Republican post in the House received a cool reaction Thursday from Speaker-to-be John Boehner, an early test of how GOP Leaders will treat the antiestablishment movement's winners in Tuesday's Elections. "Constitutional Conservatives deserve a loud and clear voice in Leadership!" Bachmann, R-Minn., who founded the Tea Party Caucus, said in a one-paragraph Facebook announcement that she is running for GOP conf..."
In a book titled," The ruling Class," author Angelo M. Codevilla wrote this," .... Only a fourth of Republican voters feel represented by Republican officials." The most obvious evidence of the American people's desire to be responsible for our own lives and to govern ourselves is the taxed Enough Already (Tea Party movement." "But that desire transcends all organizations, joning independents, Republicans., and not a few Democrats into what we might call the country party." Author Angelo M. Codevilla reflects on the future of the Tea Party and the Republican party when he wrote," Sooner rather than later,for better or worse, this supermajority of Americans will get its own political vehicle, either a obviously reformed Republican party, or a new one." "The Tea Party movement is part of the soil in which it must root."
The approaching storm brewing for the republican party is already rearing its ugly head and how well the problem is handled will determine whether the two groups can long remain in their present union.
