Tea Party Patriots Keli Carender (R) of Seattle, Washington, and Diana Reimer of Pennsylvania hold flags during a Flag Ceremony at the U.S. Capitol in Washington November 2, 2010. After a long and bitter campaign, Americans cast their votes on Tuesday in elections that could sweep Democrats from power in Congress and slam the brakes on President Barack Obama’s legislative agenda
But, what the Left-leaning media does not understand is that The Tea Party Movement is not about one election. It is about organization and policy.
Tuesday’s results make clear the Tea Party is the most dynamic and successful grass-roots political movement since Thomas Jefferson and James Madison organized the Democratic-Republican revolt against John Adams and the Federalists in 1800.
They did so because they did exactly what they should have done. Instead of fighting specific issues and causes like Card Check and cap-and-trade, they ignored their critics while focusing their energies on finding, fielding, funding and fueling candidates for elected office at every level of government, but especially for Congress.
President Obama and the 2012 GOP Presidential candidates will find out soon enough how successful they were.
