Texas Congressman Ron Paul, loved by the tea partiers, says they are not the answer to GOP woes.


“I don’t think you can talk about the tea party as a party,” Paul said during an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. “It’s made up of a lot of different people. And I don’t even see them as being Republicans.”

 

“I think they’re unhappy. They’re unhappy with the establishment party. And that’s made up of the Republicans and the Democrats,” Paul said. “If the Republicans don’t catch on to that, they can’t build their party.”

 

Responding to tea party leader Dale Robertson’s racially charged sign, Paul says, they sometimes “act too angrily, and it doesn’t come off well. If they keep doing that, yes, it may not necessarily build the party.”
