The Tea Party is alive and kicking. To be specific, it’s kicking out establishment politicians who support big government and big spending. Even Republican politicians are getting the boot. I predict November 6 will bring the biggest Tea Party victory of all.
As both a successful Las Vegas oddsmaker and political pundit in the national media, I made a bold prediction about two months ago. I predicted Obama would lose by a landslide. What is amazing to me is the biased national media is so delusional they don’t even recognize the citizen revolution that is happening before their very eyes. This landslide Romney victory will be fueled by the same Tea Party that roared to life Tuesday in Texas.
Unknown Ted Cruz won the Texas GOP Senate primary in a huge upset on Tuesday night. It was a Tea Party landslide. A preview of what is coming in November. Cruz is an unknown lawyer who has never held an elected office. Worse he had very little money to spend. Yet Cruz badly beat the favored establishment candidate Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst. And get this -- Dewhurst spent $24.5 million of his personal fortune -- and he still lost big.
But wait, it gets better! Dewhurst was endorsed by Texas Governor Rick Perry, former Arkansas Governor and Fox News star and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, establishment GOP stars from all over the country, and big business interests from all over the state of Texas. But none of it mattered. The Tea Party ran Dewhurst over like roadkill.
Ted Cruz had the secret weapon: TEA PARTY POWER. He was endorsed by Sarah Palin, Tea Party U.S. Senator Jim DeMint, and Tea Party activists from all over Texas.
The mainstream media still doesn’t get it.
