Michael Bronstein: Democrats Still See Tea Party as Threat

By    |   Monday, 24 Nov 2014 06:19 PM

Although some may say that the tea party no longer has the influence it once had, Democratic strategist Michael Bronstein tells Newsmax TV that "Democrats see the tea party as a threat."

In addition, they also see tea party members as "people who have been shaping the thoughts and opinions of the Republican Party," Bronstein, of Bronstein & Weaver Inc., told Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" on Monday.

He says, though, that "the conservative ranks are keeping Congress from acting."

"Nobody who's in Congress who is a more moderate Republican wants to be 'primaried' by a tea party candidate," he explained.

"This has ultimately moved the Republican Party even farther to the right and made it very hard for anything to get done and to find a partner to negotiate on these big issues," he said.

In addition, the more moderate parts of the country see tea party members as "really out there and . . . they can't be trusted to govern."
