Struggling Tea Party Movement Throws 5-Year Birthday Party, Counts Achievements

Tea party leaders said Thursday that five years after the movement began, it remains relevant to American politics, even at a time when its legislative accomplishments are slipping and its candidates are struggling to gain traction in Republican primaries.

Members of Congress and activists who turned out for the Tea Party Patriots‘ fifth anniversary celebration, held at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill, said they are still a major faction in Congress and hope to add to their limited-government faction in November.

“I am a little bit confused, I could have sworn I read in The New York Times that the tea party was dead,” said Sen. Ted Cruz, a Texas Republican who won his seat in 2012 on a tea party-backed platform and who urged his followers not to get demoralized by the exploding size of government under President Obama. “I am hopeful. I am optimistic. I am filled with the promise that we are going to turn this country around because there is a grass-roots revolution going on.”

Struggling? I think not.

Exactly 10:57!
This is a perfect example of the false narrative of liberal Communist propaganda.
Demonize, negate, spin, disaffect, anyway possible to eliminate or cast a negative light on the opposition is what they do and how they win because most "Democrats" are too stupid to see through the veiled lies and hatred!

The TEA Party is very strong, and making fantastic ground on who is nominated for the elections. The Dems are afraid of us, so they write articles such as this. Bozos, all of them!
