Understanding The Tea Party


There are opinions like: “Obama looks like a Muslim” and then there are opinions like the one Peter Berkowitz wrote for The Wallstreet Journal. It is part history lesson, part summary of the impetus of the Tea Party. Plus it takes a little shot at Paul Krugman, which we can all agree, is necessary from time to time.

Mr. Berkowitz nails it when he writes:

“Our universities have produced two generations of highly educated people who seem unable to recognize the spirited defense of fundamental American principles, even when it takes place for more than a year and a half right in front of their noses.”
