Letter: Tea party hates compromise
To the Editor:
Mr. Tom McCarron (June 26, 2012, Letters to the Editor, Daily Chronicle) delivers a tea party pre-election perspective on the president and liberal Democrats, but also on fellow Republicans.
Many of the Republicans, he says, are big-spending, big-government “inconsistent” GOP types who require monitoring. What McCarron doesn’t say is that his party, as self-appointed watchdog, is out to get any Republican who isn’t conservative enough and dares to compromise with even conservative Democrats. They have been more than willing to lead the charge in the political demise of any Republican (U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar from Indiana, for example) who doesn’t subscribe to ultraright fanaticism. “My Way or the Highway” could be their bumper sticker.
