Tea party should heed Henry's commentary


Date published: 7/14/2014

What a refreshing commentary by Reg Henry on July 5! ["For political gain, pots call the kettle black"]

He really captured the way most of us feel about politics during the Obama administration, particularly the disregard of the best interests of the ordinary citizen by the Republicans in order to produce the best sound bite (or play to the base) for the nightly news.

I was particularly impressed with his phrase, "It's hard to sell a scandal when your behavior is scandalously indifferent to anything but the pursuit of political advantage."

In one sentence, he catches the essence of Eric Cantor's dramatic loss, where many have written pages of less-successful narrative analyzing his failures.

Republicans and tea party, pay attention or suffer the same fate!
