And these Tea Partiers looked like they really weren't ready for prime time in opposing this deal the way they did. They were just obstructionists in my view. Hey, guys, there's a time to stand on principle, and a time to cut deals and avoid sending the nation off the financial cliff. And these Tea Partiers just don't seem to get the fact that the President of the United States still belongs to the opposing party and still has the veto power to call the shots. Pragmatism is hardly the hallmark of Tea Party politicians, in my view.
