From a New York Times contribution of Matt Kibbe, the leader of FreedomWorks, on Republican strategies for 2016:
Clearly anyone wanting to capture the Republican nomination for 2016 should realize that they will need a bold fiscal conservative economic vision to win supporters of the Tea Party community that started coming together in 2008 after George W. Bush introduced the TARP program.
The strength of this community, bound by a set of values, is everything.
The Tea Party will not move towards the nation. The nation must move to the Tea Party.
