“As I listen to the Republican presidential nominee candidates come forward and spot their ideas and bow and genuflect to the Tea Party and their agenda, I remember the Tea Party is not very popular in America,” Durbin told host Candy Crowley, when she asked about President Barack Obama’s prospects for reelection.
“What they brought us to in Washington twice already is a confrontation that has virtually threatened to close down our government and our economy,” Durbin continued, referring to thebrinkmanship over the government spending deal in April and the fight over the debt ceiling this summer. “I don’t think people like that style of politics.”
Crowley also asked Durbin about Democratic strategist James Carville’s recommendation thatObama should “panic,” in response to the Democratic losses in the New York and Nevadaspecial elections last week, and fire his economic team.
