It May Be the Tea Party That Is on Life Support

RECEIVED Tue., July 19, 2011

Dear Editor,
    In listening to the advice of the tea party, House Speaker John Boehner and his associates have practically assured the re-election of President Obama. The tea party has little or no influence east of the Mississippi, and that is where presidential elections are won. In electing President Obama, America's signaled that intolerance was on life support. The tea party wants to revive that era, and it simply will not work.
