Marco says he’s shunning the Tea Party caucus because the grassroots Tea Partiers isn’t another political party. What a bunch of bogus copout politi-talk, classic double-talk.
Both of the major parties of the political duopoly (two-party political cartel) in the Congress, both houses, they have a zillion caucuses and they are not new parties.
The people roared in November against big government, sagainst tax-and-debt socialism, and against both parties for sure. But they also want their newly minted representatives to hold the establishment feet to the fire. We want those stiff-necked upper-crust elites to back off from taking more power, and we want it to happen.
And that takes coordinated action, and that requires unity, and that requires assembling and planning and agreeing and strategy sessions. Rubio knows that he is NOT doing what the grassroots want, while saying he is. Like Scott Brown, he used the energy of the groundswell of the people’s anger to get elected and now is letting his fangs show under the mask.
That’s my opinion, unless we see something better. People are disgusted with both parties. Rubio did say one thing though, before, and that is that this is the Republican Party’s last chance. But forming alliances against the party bosses, like the Tea Party caucus, is the way to save the party from those bosses.
And by shunning Michelle Bachmann for leadership, the party bosses have also anointed her leader among the service-minded Americans and the grassroots. Rubio thinks he has a chance at more upward political mobility playing to the elites, apparently, and he could have had better.
Sometimes when you get shunned by people of money and power, you find out who your true friends are.
