Good. Some of you need to retire.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told reporters today that the Tea Party movement is making some members of Congress mull retirement.
“Do I think the negative atmosphere that has been created by the Tea Party and by others certainly goes into the thinking of members? I think it does. I think you have to honestly point out that it does,” he told reporters Tuesday.
Yeah, except that the “negative atmosphere” wasn’t “created” by the Tea Party, Mr. Majority Leader. The negative atmosphere was created by you Dems in Congress deciding that you were going to ignore the clear wishes of your constituents. The Tea Party is merely the manifestation of those constituents deciding they’ve had quite enough of that. That you and your fellows are now paying the price is your own doing, not theirs.
