Richard Viguerie: “Tea Party Acitivsts Are The New GOP”
His direct mail campaigns helped empower and elect many Republicans, including Ronald Reagan. He believes George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are too liberal. Richard Viguerie now can celebrate.
With the decision of moderate Republican Dede Scozzafava, the party’s nominee in New York state special election for an open congressional seat, to suspend her campaign, the new “new right” — which Viguerie describes as “Tea Party activists, town hall protesters, and conservatives across the country” — can claim a clear victory in its struggle to define the GOP as a far more extreme party than that envisoned by Bush, Cheney or Gingrich.
If Viguerie is right (pun intended), we can all celebrate.Click here for reuse options!
