With all of their anti-Obama hate, Republicans surely never expected their constituents to turn their anger against the Republican leaders themselves. Yet, at the Stop the Iran Nuclear Deal Rally this past week, that’s exactly what happened. Tea Party Republicans were at the event in huge numbers and they had anger they wanted to get off their collective chest.
According to Slate:
…Tea Party Patriots and other affiliated groups conveniently shifted the focus of their rally once Senate supporters crossed the threshold of 34 votes last week. The deal will only go through if the Republican establishment allows it to pass. President Obama may “make Neville Chamberlain look like George Patton,” in the words of right-wing talk radio personality Mark Levin, but the Republican leaders would be even worse by allowing him to get away with it.
The sentiment was widely held at the rally as mention of Republican leaders consistently drew stronger and louder booing from the far-right crowd than did the mention of Obama.
It’s fitting that the hate-fueled machine the Republicans have created for themselves turns back on them.
