You're wrong. The tea bagger party was invented solely as a racist group with an anti-government platform to stand on. Legislation is at a standstill not because of Republican and Democrats refuse to cooperate but because the tea bagger party has successfully infiltrated even the most moderate GOP members to conduct pure, unadulterated racist obstructionism. And it's killing them. Hillary has no competition whatsoever for 2016. The GOP can't put up a candidate crazy enough to win in their primary and sane enough to win in the general election. It's laughable. If they've been photographed with a black man or ever voted against legislating vaginas, they're dead in the water.What about all of the jobs bills that Harry Reid has refused to even bring to the Senate floor for debate?
I know that the Tea Party is way too far to the right but it seems that many democrats, including the majority of those who post on this site have moved far to the left in order to compensate. I still believe that the majority of this country, left or right, are moderates. This group needs to be heard if we are ever to have any kind of bi-partisanship. Democrats say that everything will be ok in 2016 if Hillary Clinton is elected president, but I believe that if the republicans still control the house and the country as a whole doesn't move more toward the center, it will just be a repeat of the eight years of Obama.
Hillary won't face racist obstructionism. And she doesn't plan on compromising anyway. The days of democrats reaching across the aisle will be long gone by 2016. It's not payback. It's just exorcizing a cancer out of American politics. And any group that seeks to end minimum wage, legislate women's bodies, restrict minority voters, cut aid for the poor, deny children healthcare, crumble the wall between church and state and destroy the environment is more than just a cancer on America. It's a parasite. They've killed themselves with their own idiocy. Hillary will just bury the body.
