Tea Party Getting Ready for Showdown in 2014

The GOP didn’t get the message after the election of 2010, and it’s not getting the message after its poor showing in 2012 against Obama. Typical of Republicans, they tried to appeal to the center and ignored their base.

John Boehner and a number of other Establishment Republicans are involved in a Soviet-style purge of conservatives from committees.

We’re seeing defections from a number of Republicans on the tax issue. Sen. Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, who will be up for re-election in 2014, has dumped his long-time pledge not to support tax increases. He’s not alone. Reuters reported that at least 16 Republicans in the new Congress have abandoned the pledge not to raise taxes.

Conservative opposition is building for a showdown with Chambliss in 2014.

“A new Georgia poll found that former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, whose embrace of the Tea Party briefly propelled him to the top of the 2012 GOP presidential primary field during primary, leads incumbent Republican Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss by 14 points in a hypothetical primary showdown.

“According to a Public Policy Polling (PPP) poll, Cain would defeat Chambliss, 50%-36%, in a potential primary.”

It remains to be seen if Cain will run since he will take over for long-time talk-show host Neal Bortz beginning January 22, the day after President Obama is inaugurated for a second term.

I suspect that there will be others who will challenge Chambliss before it’s all over.

Let’s prepare for a takeover of the Republican Party while the GOP is weak. Now is not the time to give up.
