Since November’s elections, those behind the Tea Party Express effort have largely been silent.
But the political action committee that played large roles in getting conservative Republicans nominated in GOP primaries this year now have their eyes on a new target: President Obama’s re-election prospects in 2012.
“Now we take the next step by working to fire Barack Obama in the 2012 elections,” said Joe Wierzbicki of Our Country Deserves Better PAC. “But in order to be successful we will have to build a massive campaign to ensure that in 2012 we are strong enough to ‘Defeat Barack Obama’ and stop this nation’s slide towards socialism.”
The group hopes 1 million people will sign the online petition. Almost 25,000 people have added their names so far.
