TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: GOP Slams Obama's SOTU Speech as Divisive, Confrontational (Quote by Jenny Beth) “Republicans Tuesday charged President Barack Obama with putting forth a highly divisive State of the Union speech that offered no new proposals and included a plan to raise $320 billion in new taxes that had no chance of passing Congress. "He's just being confrontational," Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, told Newsmax, focusing on Obama's tax plan. "He knows that's not going to pass either chamber of Congress. "In putting these policies forward, the president has shown that he has no interest in seeking common ground ...

Senate Republicans, winners of a majority in last fall's elections, began laying down markers for legislative battles ahead.

HEALTHCARE: Obamacare PR push goes silent “Health care reform advocates who struggled for decades to pass Obamacare left the job half-undone. They failed to sell it. They also underestimated the unrelenting intensity and duration of the opposition that makes the law so vulnerable to legislative and legal challenges even now, nearly five years after its passage. The White House and its allies are trying fresh messaging strategies for 2015 enrollment, including a lower-key sales pitch and narratives from real people who are happy with their coverage. Those success stories didn’t exist before coverage began one year ago. Yet the messaging missteps ...

The mainstream media is starting to get it

Since early 2012, when Mitt Romney emerged as the front runner in the Republican primary, many in the mainstream media declared the Tea Party weakened. Once the November elections protected proponents of overspending and higher taxes in federal office, the Tea Party was declared dead. However, now the media is waking up to two facts: their preconceived notions about the Tea Party are wrong, and that the Tea Party’s concerns and complaints about overspending, corruption, and constitutional abuses are correct. Consider the following: On December 17, National Journal’s Josh Kraushaar pointed out that Republican diversity is being “fueled by ...
