If the Tea Party is weakening, perhaps it's because the IRS is harassing them? Worse, the IRS has just come out with even stricter regulation of educational foundations free speech rights, which seem tailor made to gut Tea Party groups. However, unions can continue to do as they please politically under the same law that the Tea Party groups operate. For the Pravda Press, the George Washington bridge scandal is the big news, and the IRS is not worth covering. I know for a fact that their priorities would be vastly different if the president was a Republican. I know this because when Nixon used the IRS to harass his enemies, it WAS front page news and described as an impeachable offense. I agree with the historical assessment of Nixon, but I wonder why it doesn't apply to the current occupant of the White House.
