Tea Party Going To Be Easy To Beat?

ABC’s Dan Harris Dismisses Tea Party, Hints: ‘Complacency’ Is the Big Risk for ‘Gleeful’ Democrats. ABC’s Dan Harris on Saturday offered some odd spin in the debate over the Tea Party. The weekend Good Morning America co-host argued that “complacency” was the big risk for Democrats “gleeful” over the anti-big government protesters. Harris announced, “But some Democrats, including some people in the White House, seem to be verging on gleeful when it comes to the rise of the Tea Party, because the logic seems to be, some of these people have said such extreme things in the past, that they’re gonna be easier to beat.” Talking to Democratic strategist Karen Finney, the journalist wondered, “Is there complacency potentially setting in?” According to a September 19 Rasmussen tracking poll, the Republicans have a ten point generic ballot lead over the Democrats. So, worrying about the “complacency” of “gleeful” Democrats is certainly an unusual analysis. However, this isn’t the first time Harris has tried to portray the Tea Party movement as bizarre and out of the mainstream. On the September 15, 2009 World News, Harris chided the protesters: “…Some prominent Obama supporters are now saying that it paints a picture of an opposition driven, in part, by a refusal to accept a black President.” ((22 SEP 2010))
