Congressman on Blaming Tea Party for Aurora: The People Are Smarter Than That

MRCTV's Joe Schoffstall interviewed Georgia Congressman Tom Price (R) in Alexandria, Virginia and asked about ABC's crude attempt to smear the Tea Party with the mass shooting at the movie theater in Aurora, Colorado.

Rep. Price said the liberal media try to politicize everything, and the American people are smarter than to buy that line:

"The media especially on the left tries to take advantage of every single activity, positive or negative. And it’s destructive. It’s destructive to the discussion we have from a political standpoint. It’s destructive to the body politic. It’s destructive to the country. The motives for those individuals escapes me, but I do know the American people are smarter than that. They understand that people like the person who was responsible for this are deranged, and it has nothing to do with their politics."
