Tea Party activist: Republicans beware! - CNN.com
The Republicans won by virtue of not being Democrats. They did little to earn their victory. To many, their Pledge to America is weak tea and doesn't go far enough in reducing spending and the size of the federal government.
Americans no longer trust the Democrats from a fiscal responsibility standpoint. But Republicans should not read their massive victories as a love for their party from the Tea Party. The Tea Party is loyal to principles of fiscal responsibility and limited government, not party or politician.
If Republicans misread the intent of the American voter and are as fiscally reckless as they were during the Bush years, they soon will find themselves packing their bags and being replaced by a new crop of leaders who understand America will no longer tolerate reckless spending and misguided fiscal policies.
