Were the Tea Protests the last gasp of a dying GOP?

So will the Tax Day Tea Protests turn into anything?  I was disappointed to see the GOP take over these events.  Having a dying party lead the effort can’t possibly be a good idea.

Check out this quote from one of the GOP hacks, U.S. Rep. Kevin McCarthy from Bakersfield:

“It’s irresponsible to borrow more than all previous American presidents combined,” McCarthy said. “And it must stop if we want to get our economy moving again, according to TheHill.com.

Hey Kevin, wasn’t it a tad irresponsible for your boy Bush to start a war in Iraq on false pretenses and then spend a damn fortune carrying out said bogus war?

And wasn’t it rather irresponsible for Bush and his lame SEC Chairman Chris Cox to look the other way while Wall St. collapsed and while Bernie Madoff made off with over $60 billion dollars of other people’s money?

Let’s face it, Bush destroyed the world economy.  Nothing Obama does will come close to that.  I grant that Obama’s economic policies suck too, but I voted for the Libertarian candidate last November, so don’t blame me!

And the Republicans should not be blaming Obama.  That holds true in particular here in California, where our state has gone to Hell under Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The real Boston Tea Party was an amazing act of public vandalism that started the American Revolution.  Do today’s Tea Protests compare to that seminal event?  Honestly, I don’t think so.  I find it hard to believe that these protests will lead to anything at all.  They may well be the last gasp of a party with one foot in the grave.
