Dudes and dudettes…this will be short and to the point. After you digest what the tried and true, RINO-Deluxe, David Brooks had to say about the ‘Tea Party‘ vs the ‘Establishment‘ a few days ago…please see if you agree with his assessment and conclusion about the big picture of things in the political circles of congress and the future of where he says the real power will end.
This is via DC:
On “PBS NewsHour” on Friday, during his regular segment with syndicated columnist Mark Shields, New York Times columnist David Brooks said the ongoing infighting within the conservative movement isn’t going away any time soon.
“I think it’s the beginning of a longer-lasting thing,” Brooks said. “There’s been a lot of calls for Republicans to change. And we have seen that from everybody to Paul Ryan to Marco Rubio. Now we’re beginning to see the donor class really begin to change. There is some question: Are they trying to change just the candidates, so they don’t get Todd Akin, or they trying to actually change some of the substance? And, so far, it seems to be just the candidates. One of the interesting things — and I can’t say I know the answer to this — is, how much will the tea party fight back? There has been some effort that they are saying, oh, the establishment is taking over.”
The establishment will eventually trump the tea party, Brooks said.
“But my own sense of things so far is that there is not the will to fight among the tea party, and that a lot of people in the tea party are, frankly — they’re not,” he continued. “They are also Republicans. Say, Rush Limbaugh, for example, who is not tea party. He’s more an establishment Republican who wants the Republican Party to win. So I have a feeling that the establishment is going to have maybe an easier time of it than some might think.”
So friends…after all is said and done in the end, who do you think will win the fight? The grass-root Tea Party movement, or the republican Establishment?
First and foremost, please be brutally honest about your answers when you reply!
