GOP “dodges the bullet,” as main Tea Party gains are actually its losses! Also, cause of women politicians gained by Tea Party losses.

3 Nov

Some of the Tea Party candidates who lost, had they won, would have caused severe problems to both the Tea Party and the GOP. In spite of being mad, the American public in general is intelligence, and does not often allow emotions to clutter its judgement.

Some Tea Party endorse candidates were clearly “not ready for prime.” interestingly enough, the most visible of these candidates were women. By losing women politicians were kepy from losing the grounds they gained in the last twenty years, or more; in other words: They “dodged the bullet!”

The most visible of these women are:

Christine O’Donnell, who among other things was more than ready to bring religion into government.

Sharron Angle who, among other flaws, is a bigoted person who cannot, or rather does not care to, hide her homophobia.

Carly Fiorina, who claims to be the person who propelled HP to where it is today, when in reality was given a “golden parachute,” by HP to get her out-of-the-way before destroying that company, as she had done to Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC,) and to Compaq.

There were also notable men losers that the Tea Party supported and who could have set back social progress in the United States by many years. Let me mention just one of these candidates since he would have represented my state in Washington: Ken Buck, a homophobe who, in spite the recent disaster in the stock market, was still pushing for American seniors manage their own social security.

In closing, the Tea Party did wake up the GOP and suggested to the “party of no,” that it must bring a positive agenda to the tabel. The Tea Party did not propose an agenda (since it does not seem to have one,) but it rather suggested to the GOP that it must get its house in order and engage with the Democrats in navigating the ship of state in a positive manner. The message notwithstanding, Tea Party narrowly escaped the embarrassment of getting a number of inept candidates to run under its banner.

One can only hope that Tea Party lessons are positive and will help the United States understand that government in a democracy must listen to, and comply with, wishes of the voting public.
