GOP should shed Tea Party influence

Success - Article sent! close

Mr. Frost's May 2 storytelling for the Republican Party is beyond belief. Suggesting that the Democratic-led anti-GOP websites are drowning out Republicans calling you racists and haters? Did you ever hear of Fox News (I think you have).

Why has the old Republican guard stood silent? The haters of the Tea Party have not allowed legislation to even be voted on because it would mean a win for the president. Check the facts. Sen. Pat Toomey, a Republican from Pennsylvania, said that background checks for gun purchases died because GOP did not want to help President Obama.

Where are the voices of the fair-minded Republicans? If you stand up to the radicals in the Tea Party, Republicans might have a chance to win back the presidency in 2016.
