Boehner to GOP: Embrace the Tea Parties
This nugget from Jake Sherman and Patrick O’Connor’s preview of the House GOP retreat deserves more attention.
[House Minority Leader John] Boehner has told his rank and file to embrace the so-called tea party movement “because it will be critical as we proceed,” according to excerpts from his remarks.
I’ve been reporting for months on how, despite the non-partisan origins of the movement, the Tea Party will inevitably do the GOP more good than the Democrats. And the the GOP is aware of this.
