No surprise here. “too moderate” is being kind. He’s not moderate. He’s a statist.
Where are the Tea Party and liberty groups to throw the big government tax and spender out? Oh yeah, they were busy working to pull 6% for Corkers opponent in 2012.
There are several problems with the grassroots groups in Tennessee. Some of them are phonies. Others spend too much time on ra ra rallies. Egos are a factor causing strife. Failure to prioritize goals is another. While the Republicans have gained a super-majority in the State legislature, grass roots activism has little to do with. It’s mostly fear of Obama and failure of Democrats to offer anything to counter Obama mania.
