Schwarzenegger: The tea party movement will fade when the economy comes back

posted at 4:29 pm on February 24, 2010 by Allahpundit

He’s on firmer ground here than he was over the weekend.

“The TEA Party is an expression of anger and of disappointment,” Schwarzenegger said in an interview last night with Greta Van Susteren on FOX News Channel’s On the Record. “I’m just saying they’re not going anywhere with it because nobody is coming up and saying, ‘Here’s our candidate, here’s our solution, here’s what we’re going to do,’ and have a whole policy debate over the various different issues….

“So this is why I think, in the end, when the economy comes back, I think that the TEA Party will disappear again,” he said — which begs the question of how quickly the economy will offer any signs of real recovery sufficient to quell that tea revolt.

Nobody’s coming up and saying, “Here’s our candidate”? Like I said the last time I wrote about this, tell that to Charlie Crist. The “here’s what we’re going to do” part is also being addressed. It may not be a Schwarzenegger agenda — although Schwarzenegger circa 2003 would have taken a shine to it, I’ll bet — but it’s an agenda.

He’s right about some of the energy being sapped from the movement as economic anxieties recede, though. That’s not to say it’ll fade entirely (Perot’s Reform Party is still around in some form, as I recall) and the more committed libertarians within the group will keep on truckin’ regardless, fueled by their principles. But no movement is comprised entirely of dedicated ideologues; they’re all a mix of ideologues, reformists, and people who are disaffected for whatever reason, and as the last group becomes less disaffected, some are bound to peel away. Said Richard Hofstadter:

Major parties have lived more for patronage than for principles; their goal has been to bind together a sufficiently large coalition of diverse interests to get into power; and once in power, to arrange sufficiently satisfactory compromises of interests to remain there. Minor parties have been attached to some special idea or interest, and they have generally expressed their positions through firm and identifiable programs and principles. Their function has not been to win or govern, but to agitate, educate, generate new ideas, and supply the dynamic element in our political life. When a third party’s demands become popular enough, they are appropriated by one or both of the major parties and the third party disappears. Third parties are like bees: once they have stung, they die.

Right. Schwarzenegger’s problem is that he seems to think the tea party won’t ever sting when in fact they’ve stung already and are preparing to swarm in November. The question is whether they can get the GOP to appropriate their principles before the economy recovers and takes some of the urgency out of their demands. Given the track The One is on, that could be as soon as … what? Five years from now?

Ahnold is a European who doesn’t understand jack about America. He is a perfect example of why the Founders put the “natural born citizen” clause in. The Precedent is another perfect example of what the Founders were trying to defend America from with that clause.

neurosculptor on February 24, 2010 at 4:32 PM

The economy will come back when the government slashes spending and cuts taxes. Then the tea party will have accomplished its mission and can fade away.

It looks as if Schwarzenegger has gone in for the Stan Laurel look.

Dr. Carlo Lombardi on February 24, 2010 at 4:33 PM

What needs to fade are celebrities masquerading as politicians.

Enough with the grease paint, rubber noses and oversized novelty shoes in Governor’s Offices (Arnold), the Senate (Al Franken) and in the White House (Bozo Barry).

We need actual people with actual experience and actual qualifications. Not media marketed jackass speech readers.

If ever…I do believe the debt effects will dampen economic recovery for at least a generation…we still haven’t dealt with the entitlements explosion for the boomers…in fact, Obama just keeps piling it on.

So, I think this movement or something like it will be around for quite a while. Not that Ahnold has to worry about it…he’s done.

HondaV65 on February 24, 2010 at 4:35 PM

Tea Party is only set to explode as we are about to go into full Depression this year (we are already in it, but no one wants to call it that). Things will only get worse for the next 3 years as Obama is doing everything to hurt recovery, not help it.

Voidseeker on February 24, 2010 at 4:35 PM

Um… unfortunately for the likes of morons like Crist, McCain, this doofus and the Democrats, the economy definitely won’t rebound before November 2010 and probably won’t rebound by November 2012.

t.ferg on February 24, 2010 at 4:32 PM

Exactly. If the policies that would reign in spending and lead to a sustained economic recovery were enacted by Obama and the Dems, there wouldn’t be a need for the Tea Party.

But since anyone with half a brain(which rules out the media and most Obama supporters) knows this will never happen as long as this bunch is in charge, we must remain vigilant.

Yes, the Tea Party will go back to complacency once the threat of Statism recedes. No, it’s not just about the economy — although, the way Statism kills wealth, it’s hard to completely distinguish it as a separate issue. Just the economic uncertainty of trillions of dollars sloshing around for political patronage instead of being put to work in productive enterprises is keeping people on the sidelines.

HomeoftheBrave on February 24, 2010 at 4:40 PM

He made his fortune in America. If anyone should understand the mindset of the Tea party it’s this guy … freedom to work hard and reap the rewards, not have your efforts diminished by a powerful government taking your earning.

I suppose he’s been corrupted by his progressive wife.

darwin on February 24, 2010 at 4:40 PM

I think it will take both an economic rebound and a period of good behavior by politicians. I am referring to pork, shady deals and crazy spending. I can only speak for myself but I have zero confidence in these people. I don’t know if we aren’t getting the cream of the crop willing to serve or Washington is just that corrupting.

madmonkphotog on February 24, 2010 at 4:42 PM

He’s probably right, but until we get rid of the current bunch, the economy won’t come back – so, there ya have it.

I explained it to a friend thusly: we Americans like to buy stuff, and when we can’t buy stuff, we get real mad. And now, no matter who you are, you are scaling back.

When the economy is going well and everyone has a job so we can buy stuff, we think politics and the crazy antics of the politicians (cigars and blue dresses)is the stuff of late night comedy to the amusement of all. When they mess with our ability to make a living and we scrape to provide the basics for our families? Not so much funny. Now we’re mad. And somebody is gonna pay.

It now amazes me that anyone considered him a Republican. I am part of the Tea Party movement and my beef is with the out of control spendathon that will bankrupt our country before we know it, and which will cause the State to grow and individual liberty to diminish. He just doesn’t get what the Tea Party is about nor how econmomics works. Both are not surprising.

ERRRRRRR – It will take 25 years for Cali to get out from under the debt they are buried in.

iam7545 on February 24, 2010 at 4:43 PM

well seems to me that he’s been wrong about everything else

badpenny on February 24, 2010 at 4:45 PM

If Ahnold knew anything about America, he would know that the Tea Party sentiment first started organizing against the Shamnesty, when there were economic issues in sight. And that was a very strong group (though not organized until the health scare monstrosity and slew of marxist, anti-American policies started ouring out of Washington).

But, Ahnold doesn’t know jack about America.

It had to be done.
Although I pity him more than dislike him. He spent so long acting Conservative enough to get elected, and now that he’s finally perfected acting liberal, the country wants Conservatives again.

DrAllecon on February 24, 2010 at 4:45 PM

The problem with Schwarzenegger’s arguement is that the Tea Party isn’t only about the economy – it’s about an overreaching Federal Government that’s overstepping it’s Constitutional bounds and blatently abusing its power.

Economic recovery is all well and good, but the Tea Party won’t go away if the first thing the Dems attempt after the recovery is full blown Socialized Medicine. Newsflash for Ahnuld – it wasn’t only because of the economic mess we’re in that there were so many angry town halls last summer.

crazy_legs on February 24, 2010 at 4:45 PM

The Tea Party will fade into the background when we have accomplished what is needed to save our country. This will last as long as is needed.

I am a great great great granddaughter of a man who fought at the battle of Bunker hill. I am also the granddaughter of Immigrants from Sweden. I have 2 beautiful children from China and two beautiful children for Vietnam.

Their freedom, my freedom and your freedom are worth all that we need to do.

The economy will come back when the Tea Party movement succeeds in it’s mission. Funny how that works.

Kind of a truism, Ahnold.

The tea party movement will fade when the economy comes back it has exerted its will and changed the political landscape for a generation.

Duh.

Akzed on February 24, 2010 at 4:47 PM

He might be right since many seem to only differ with the liberals just on economic policy. Foreign policy seems to be a mix (given the Paulites). Social morality doesn’t seem to hold much sway with a large swath of what I’ve seen on this blog. So it could well be that economic policy is the only glue holding the larger group of tea partiers together.

Then again, economic fragility is likely to be at the forefront for many years after the damage this administration has inflicted.

rplat on February 24, 2010 at 4:48 PM

The big difference between now and the past is our present financials are unsustainable, regardless of which party is in power. We are in uncharted waters.

a capella on February 24, 2010 at 4:49 PM

Third parties have become dominant parties in the past.

As many people here have pointed out before, the Whigs are no longer around.

I’m a bit rusty on my early U.S. political history, but, I don’t think either of today’s two major parties were around at the start of political parties.

I think it’s easy for people to see changes in the past (e.g. Old English became Middle English became Modern English) but much harder for them to see changes in the future (e.g. well, of course English is no longer going to change. 500 years from now English will still be the same because now we have T.V.).

We can look back in history and see parties coming and going but find it hard to believe that our current parties will ever go away.

I, for one, think it’s perfectly doable, but, I think you have to start at the local level first while most third parties start with gubanatorial or presidential candidates. If a third party took the ‘long view’ and started getting local mayor and city councilmen elected, they’d have a batch of candidates well-known enough to get elected as a state rep, state senator, or congressman. Then, they’d have a batch of candidates well known enough to get elected to a statewide office like senator or governor. Then, they’d have enough recognition (and enough people used to seeing them on ballots and voting for their party) to get a president elected. Smaller parties always seem to blow their very limited resources on big races before they’ve proven they can win (and shown they can govern).

The Tea Party movement is like a quality bird dog flushing out every political fool in government and media. I have never seen anything that so many people simply misunderstand…well maybe climate change, but it’s the same fools in both cases.

bagoh20 on February 24, 2010 at 4:51 PM

I don’t think the Tea Party will be dying off for a very long time. The events of last summer awakened literally MILLIONS of people to just how corrupt our government has become and how far from founding principles this nation has strayed. Those millions are now educated about progressivism, socialism, marxism, liberalism, etc., and don’t want any part of it. They now realize that it’s everyone’s job to defend freedom and liberty in this nation. Otherwise both will be stolen piece by piece, as has been done for the last 100 years of “progress”. People are paying attention now, and won’t be caught asleep at the switch again.

Dominion on February 24, 2010 at 4:51 PM

The Tea Paries I’ve been to, here in NY, were not about anxiety but about the growing power of GOVT to tax, spend, and control the daily lives of the citizenry.How we spend our money and time are issues to gather around.Not having the money. Most tea party folks are not in dire economic straits. They are concerned about their future economic,social, and political Liberty. Ahhhnold does not understand this because of his European upbringing, and for that matter neither did his countryman Henry Kissinger.

xkaydet65 on February 24, 2010 at 4:52 PM

mbabbitt on February 24, 2010 at 4:43 PM

Nor does the left.

It’s the OODA Loop: Observe, Orient, Decide, Act.

Folks like Arnie are screwing up their own “orient” part so badly that their decisions and actions, what they think, say, and do, will always be out of step with the TEA Party, and pretty much anyone (actually) on the right. So they observe again, make more orientation errors, and compound the problem.

Rinse, repeat, crash into the ground…

The Tea Party Movement will fade when we no longer have a Black President regardless of the economy, party, or ideology of that president.

I just wish I could be there to see Ah-nold lose his seat to a tea party approved, real Conservative candidate. Especially if that means recalling Ah-nold, like they did his predecessor.
