Hillary Clinton thanked the Republican establishment and its big business allies for taking on the Tea Party and defeating conservative candidates like Chris McDaniel in Mississippi's June runoff. In a Thursday interview with Charlie Rose on PBS, Clinton said tea partiers and conservatives needed to be reined in. And she said it was about time the GOP establishment got a "wake-up call from the big business wing" that wants to continue the bipartisan big government policies that have made Washington, D.C.'s suburbs the country's wealthiest "boomtown."
"Finally, the Republican establishment and their business supporters have woken up," Clinton said, noting that she tells audiences, "Don't vote for anyone who refuses to compromise."
Rose said that the Tea Party conservatives are more powerful now than when her husband was president, but Clinton said when big business interests pour millions into races, conservatives can be defeated, as the Cochran race showed.
They keep telling us the Tea Party is dead, they are a non-issue, they aren't worried about it...meanwhile they spend millions and millions of dollars and unite with the left to crush this thing they tell us has no real power. They sure are spending a lot of money on the Tea Party that wasn't...makes you wonder exactly how scared they are...
Good luck with the whole crushing the Tea Party thing, you are going to need it but I might add...you can't kill an idea and the Tea Party is more of an idea than a party.
