This morning I was in the mood to check out the chatter over in progressive blog land. So, I dropped in at The Progressive. As suspected warnings are out not to underestimate the Tea Party movement or it's growing influence and successful candidates, including Rand Paul. For certain the progressive statist left is feeling threatened right now.
After Paul’s victory, it’s more likely than ever that Sarah Palin will be the nominee in 2012. And then anything can happen. Including her winning the White House.
Especially after the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United, which will let corporate America pour billions into the election.
Rand Paul foreshadowed one ad that these corporate dollars are likely to buy: an ad that claims Obama is betraying America. “We now have,” Paul said, “a President who apologizes for America’s greatness.
Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney, and Palin herself have uttered similar slurs against Obama.
This tag, more than health care, more than the deficit, may be what ultimately costs Obama.So don’t take comfort in the craziness of Rand Paul, or the zaniness of Sarah Palin. Watch out for them.
