The Republican Party is showing definite signs of political implosion as extremists and radicals in its ranks engage one another in a vicious battle for control. We may well be watching the early stages of its demise, not only because of this intense, debilitating struggle between opposing factions within it, but because its agenda and ideological beliefs are totally unacceptable to an increasingly diverse American society.
As many of us watch what may well be the eventual dissolution of the GOP, it's not difficult to determine what exactly initiated this internal strife. Without question, this battle for control of the party can be directly attributed to the poisonous presence and damaging influence of the Tea Party. It's not good enough to hate "big government" and everything it does. You have to know how to make things better but these political misfits haven't a clue or the mental capacity on how to even begin to go about it.
Speaker John Boehner has been under constant attack by many of his colleagues. The House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor, a strong Tea Party supporter, continues to undermine him behind the scenes; Governor Christie of N.J. and Rep. King of N.Y., both Republicans, blasted him for delaying government emergency grants for victims of Hurricane Sandy. The Tea Party continues to obstruct his agenda. It has been reported that Boehner, battered and beaten down by his colleagues, and known to be a very emotional person, was seen behind closed doors, sobbing uncontrollably. He has my sincere sympathies.
