The Patriot Post® · GOP vs. Tea Party?
Fox News analyst Pat Caddell thinks that the Republican establishment actually wants the IRS to target Tea Party groups “because the Tea Parties are an outside threat to their power hold, and I’m telling you, the lobbying, consulting class of the Republican Party and Republican leadership who have been attacking the Tea Parties and alienating them, they want the IRS to do this.” It’s an intriguing hypothesis, and not at all far fetched. After all, the Tea Party has made a habit of attacking establishment Republicans – even very conservative ones like Mitch McConnell – in an effort to move the GOP rightward. Those in power generally want to keep it.
