Do you all remember when our local left was explaining how the power of the Tea Party was fading away to be replaced by the Occupy Movement. I am sure you remember the pronouncements by Mr Frisch and Mr Enos, that the Tea Party was just a fad.
Well the Tea Party is till flexed it’s mussel in Indiana today:
NBC News has declared Richard Mourdock as the projected winner in the Indiana Senate primary. Mourdock defeated six-term Republican foreign policy elder statesman Sen. Richard Lugar.
Mourdock was supported by the Tea Party organizations all across the state. Not one group, but multiple groups, all working with out central direction. This is the power of the Tea Party, it is a true grass roots organization, where as Occupy is a true astroturf organization. When the Occupy Movement’s money dries up, they will go away.
We are going to see more Tea Party action in the coming weeks. Stay Tuned.
