From @DanRiehl: More Dem #teaparty fail

You can tell they all got the memo.

In the last 48 hours I’ve read similar statements from vulnerable dems regarding the tea party. The only real similarity between the Republicans and the tea party I can see is that they have a common enemy.

Let’s reason this out. Polls repeatedly demonstrate that whatever the public thinks the Tea Party actually is, it is far more popular with them than the Democrat or Republican parties.

And the Democrat’s strategy for November is to brand Republicans as beholden to the Tea Party. Is that correct? What genius thought this one up? They got nothing, folks. They. Got. Nothing. They spent months trying to create groups to mimic it. Now, they are attacking it. Yeah, that makes sense. Geez.

Democratic National Committee chairman Tim Kaine will be accusing GOP leaders of being beholden to the Tea Party’s agenda at a press conference this morning, mocking Republican plans to offer voters a legislative commitment modeled after the Contract with America.

As part of its initiative, the DNC is launching a website accusing Republicans of supporting a legislative blueprint in line with the Tea Party movement that includes repeal of the health care law and Wall Street reform, extending tax breaks, privatization of Social Security and the elimination of the Department of Education and the Department of Energy.

“The Tea Party is now an institutionalized part of the Republican party. They are one and the same,” a DNC operative said, previewing Kaine’s speech. “The positions espoused by the Tea Party is the governing platform of the Republican party. And as voters make their choice this fall it’s important to understand what the Republican-Tea Party wants to do if elected.”
