Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) will deliver the official tea party response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union tonight, Tuesday, January 28th. Lee follows Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, and Rand Paul, who delivered the tea party response in previous years.
So....what was this? The Tea Party response to the GOP response to the State Of The One address? Why does the Tea Party feel compelled to give a separate response? And anybody wonders where the "GOP civil war" narrative comes from? Or is it just that this will be the Tea Party's last hurrah this cycle before being eradicated by the Obamastapo (i.e. I.R.S.)?
For TPers' sake, I hope Senator Lee's comments have a ten-month shelf life.
