"I'm not afraid of anybody," Waters told the crowd. "This is a tough game. You can't be intimidated. You can't be frightened. And as far as I'm concerned, the Tea Party can go straight to hell." (Source, ABC News)
What hell is she speaking of, Congresswoman Waters?
Is she referring to the economic turmoil of her constituents, whose wailing and gnashing of teeth have failed to move the race-baiting Congresswoman and colleagues to promote economic reform that will actually assist recovery?
Is she referring to the stalling tactics of the Tea Party, whose principled opposition to debt ceiling increases in the face of economy-crushing nation debt prevented the liberal opposition from launching another bank-busting stimulus, doomed to fail?
Is she referring to the bloviated myths about Big Government, that a little more money, another public works project, and a whole of left-wing bashing right-wing will reinvigorate an anemic recovery? A stalling recovery rendered moribund by liberal economic policies, which frustrate businesses with shifting regulations, unclear mandates, and temporary tax cuts?
For all the heated rhetoric against the President and the Republican Congress, whom she continues to spuriously lump with the Tea Party Movement, Congresswoman Waters has taken no steps to put out the inferno eating away at her credibility and the economy.
Aside from the inferno of limited-government partisans demanding less intrusion and more freedom to invest and hire, Waters faces the ever-expanding pit of discredited incumbents facing the backlash of voter angst. With the added stressor of redrawn Congressional districts, Waters and Co. may be facing stark challenges to their imperious rule in Congress, where they have laid up treasure for themselves at the expense of the poor and destitute in their districts.
If her political soul is at risk, Waters' caterwauling against the Tea Party will not save her from the final judgment of repudiation and removal from office.
