President Obama and the Democrats love to bash the Tea Party and those pesky, unruly constitutional conservatives. They are fond of saying how the Tea Party will be responsible for the Republican Party’s demise.
However, in a cruel twist of fate, thanks to the disaster that is Obamacare, it looks like the Tea Party may actually be responsible for massive gains by the GOP in the 2014 Midterm Elections.
Why? Have you read the headlines about Obamacare since it rolled out? This is exactly what Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Tim Huelskamp and dozens of others predicted would happen. It looks like those “Wacko Birds” are going to be proven right.
And when that happens, two things happen: the Tea Party movement gets another serious injection of credibility and that very well may translate into electoral success in November 2014. Meanwhile, President Obama has egg on his face after these Obamacare debacles. This is all setting up very nicely for the Tea Party.
Now, let’s be clear: If Obamacare continues to fail, every GOP politician will scream, “I told you so."
But hey, we all know who were the real fighters against Obamacare. We know the politicians who took a serious PR political hit for shutting down the government over it. That may not have been the smartest strategy in the short term and clear damage was done to the GOP brand.
But the disastrous start to Obamacare looks to have a much deeper, long-term effect on President Obama and the Democrat Party than the, “Wacko Birds.” Instead, they may be flying high when all of this settles after the Midterm Elections.
