Yes, there is nothing like seeing tea party leaders threaten the GOP, STATEWIDE. And coming from their no doubt, racist leader, Dale Robertson. Oh, you don't know him? Here he is holding a sign about our President proudly in his hands during one of his protests.
But back to the Tea Party threatening the GOP:
Dale Robertson doesn't mince words. The tea party spokesperson and head of Teaparty.org in Houston issued a strong statement this week warning state GOP leaders that if they didn't support strongly conservative candidates, their jobs were at risk.
"We are turning our guns on anyone who doesn't support constitutional conservative candidates," Robertson said. "If they don't get that, and their party chairmen don't get that, they are going to be ostracized."
Jim Greer, Florida's GOP Chairman, was forced to resign earlier this week under similar pressure from far-right activists following his endorsement of Charlie Crist, a "big-tent" Republican who has been criticized by some conservative factions for being too moderate. Tea Party activists have backed Crist's opponent, Marco Rubio, in the upcoming Republican primary.
It is people like this within the Republican Party that are running moderates out of the party. This is why Governor Charlie Crist (R-FL) is having a very difficult time in Florida from his opponent State Senator Marco Rubio. Again, keep an eye on this primary race in Florida, if the Tea Party is successful, Crist will lose his bid on running in the general election for the open U.S. Senate seat.
