Tea Party Groups to GOP: Stay Away From Social Issues, Please | The Atlantic Wire

Tea Party Groups to GOP: Stay Away From Social Issues, Please | The Atlantic Wire
  • A Reckoning Is Coming, agrees Doug Mataconis at Outside the Beltway. "If the Tea Party wants to remain true to its limited government principles, then it strikes me that the default position would be less government and more personal freedom, whether the issue being dealt with involves economics or so-called 'social issues,'" Mataconis writes. "At some point this unnatural split in the GOP's view on freedom will have to be reconciled."
  • How This Will Likely Play Out  "It is unlikely that McConnell and Boehner will follow that advice," writes Bridgette LaVictoire at the blog Lez Get Real, "because to do so will be to alienate the likes of Tony Perkins of the so-called Family Research Council, Brian Brown over at the National Organization for (Christian) Marriage, and the not really American Family Association. In fact, those people warned that if social issues were thrown by the wayside, they'd go into rebellion." LaVictoire guesses that groups like GOProud will find themselves "sold up the river without a single secondary thought from the anti-LGBT Republicans."
