In her Bayshore Tea Party Perspective blog at APP.com, Bayshore Tea Party Group founder Barbara Gonzalez wrote today that members of the Tea Party are Republicans In Name Only.
Reacting to a derisive comment about the Tea Party by columnist Bernard Goldberg on last night’s O’Reilly Factor, Gonzalez wrote:
You see, we are Republicans in name only. Most of us are registered as Republicans, but over the last four or so years as the Tea Party movement, we have realized that we are not really what the GOP has become. With a 2 party system, we have been forced to chose the party that we are registered with.
Well, that was then…..and this is now
Gonzalez went on to implore Tea Party members to discipline the GOP establishment as they would discipline their children:
As we would do with our own children, we must be strong, hold our ground and mean what we say. Our children would be totally disobedient if we were as milk toast (sic) with disciplining them as we have been with our government officials.
Gonzalez does not want the Tea Party to comply with the GOP establishment and the media nominating a moderate for President in 2016.
