Clearly no one of any prominence in the political media or in congress has spoken out against the Tea Party before. This is why former ABC News anchor man, Sam Donaldson is in the news…
During an appearance on Chris Matthews‘ syndicated weekend talk show, ABC News contributor and analyst Sam Donaldson criticized the tea party and argued that the movement and the Republican party were becoming increasingly in danger of irrelevancy.
“It’s the Tea Party and thinking of the Tea Party and people like that that are driving the Republicans out of contention as a national party,” he said.
Donaldson said that he had a particular aversion to the campaign slogan “We want to take back our country.”
“Guys, it’s not your country anymore – it’s our country and you’re part of it, but that thinking is going to defeat Republicans nationally if they don’t get rid of it,” he said.
