Congress: Going Forward, Or into Gridlock?

Thursday, November 04, 2010

President Obama stood before reporters yesterday and addressed the big losses his party suffered in the midterm elections — including the turnover of the House of Representatives to Republicans. Obama accepted blame for not fullfiling voters' needs on the economy. How will the President's agenda now change? And with Republicans in control of Congress, what will their own agenda be? We'll look towards the future of Congress and the president with Peter Baker, chief political correspondent for The New York Times.

You asked for a tea party person to comment. I am one, and have been for a couple of years.

One mistake people make is assuming that the tea party is composed of one type of person. Actually, the tea party movement started with Ron Paul libertarians as a reaction against the excesses of the Bush administration. Now those of us who started the Tea Party idea are being marginalized within the Tea Party, and it's just becoming the GOP Party. We are nothing to be afraid of anymore, I'm afraid.
