Of course we’ve heard this before.

From Josh Kraushaar at National Journal, The Tea Party’s Over:

2014 is shaping up as the year the Republican establishment is finding its footing. Of the 12 Republican senators on the ballot, six face primary competition, but only one looks seriously threatened: Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi....

As an Environmental Health and Safety professional and Tea Party activist, one of my concerns is overregulation of business.

For example, the permit process for various operations can be both expensive and time-consuming.  Failure to comply with complex regulatory requirements is potentially costly.  I rail the business-crushing California laws often.

Professor Jacobson recently noted that we just celebrated the 5th anniversary of the birth of America’s Tea Party movement.

He noted one of the best aspects about his involvement has been the people that he has met during his “insurrection”.  As a citizen activist in California, involved with our local Tea Party...

Yesterday, we commented on how the Tea Party has seen a 50% jump in favorability ratings from the American public since the partial government shut down last October, rebounding to its historical range.

This development is rather remarkable for a couple of reasons. First, as we pointed earlier, nary a peep was...

At this point, I’m used to support for the Tea Party being mischaracterized in news coverage of polling. 

The negative always is the focus, and actual analysis of the persistency of support hovering between 1-in-4 and 1-in-5 Americans is ignored:

Rick Santelli February 19 2009

February 19, 2009, is the date credited as the start of the Tea Party movement, although some activists would differ and say they already were laying the groundwork.

But there’s no doubt that Rick Santelli’s call for a Chicago Tea Party on CNBC was the moment that sparked the movement:

With Obama’s State of the Union address coming up, it’s easy to breath a sigh of relief that another year is behind us, and he only has three more to go.

There has been a not too subtle attempt this week to smear the Tea Party as racist and violent in connection with the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
