NPT DC: Trying to out-Obama Obama; organizing for the April 15 Tea Party in El Paso and the nation

The wheel keeps turning … If Obama can be said to have successfully repackaged liberalism, elements of the Republican Party are trying to repackage conservatism (or, as many of them might say, simply package conservatism, since they disavow what happened under their watch). Various Republicans and conservative groups are working at mastering the social networking tools used effectively by the Obama campaign during the presidential run (which continue to be used by Obama allies).

Back to the future: Calling themselves the “silent majority” (remember that one?) the national Tea Party comes to El Paso April 15.

  1. The Minutemen. Tea Parties. Is this all they guys can do for credibility? Raid the history books for the next founding allusion?

    I’d ask if they’re going to bring back the “slave auction” next, but they’ve already been there, done that:

    Republicans are great at symbolism. Tape etched with “Life” over the mouths of teenagers. Fingers stained with voting ink. Flip-Flops waiving in unison at their national convention.

    It’s too bad they suck so much at substance.

  2. Why attack their meeting ? You dont have to attend. This is a Democracy and ALL groups whether, you agree with them or not, they are entitled to free speech.

    When you start to limit them, you are at risk at developing a one party government and we all know what usually comes out of those. In any case, we need input from everyone, simply because no one party or person has all the answers. And if you believe that you are fooling yourself.
