In the latest poll I've seen about 2014, a generic poll by Washington Post/ABC, Democrats led Republicans by 48 percent to 40 percent — a huge margin. Of course, polls will vary. But the idea of a House GOP that is stunningly unpopular running inquisitions against President Obama, whose popularity towers above the GOP, and Clinton, whose popularity towers above the GOP even more, is a political disaster in the making.

The prime directive for the Tea Party is tax breaks for the rich and tax breaks for themselves — hardly a winning position in a nation that wants more equity and fairness for all. The Tea Party projects a politics and negativity,which is why it is so highly unpopular with voters.

America does not want the product the right is selling. Let the fantasists and delusionists name their saviors for the Republicans and the Republic, which is the best news of the year for Democrats as Republican inquisitions continue from their unpopular partisans in the House.
