Editors note: I tweeted this, "Does Mike Pence want the label Teavangelical when John Gregg is claiming he is an extremist?" This is based of Matt Lewis' interview with CBN's David Brody in the Daily Caller regarding his new book, "The Teavangelical". It drew such a visceral reaction from some, we'll open it up for discussion.
David Brody, the Chief Political Correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), is out with a new book, arguing that evangelicals and libertarian-leaning conservatives can forge a long-term bond. And in The Teavangelicals, Brody envisions the culmination of a decades-long effort being the election of Rep. Mike Pence as the first “Teavangelical president.”
“I believe with all of my journalistic heart, ” Brody said during a recent conversation, “that Mike Pence has a real chance to be the first Teavangelical president in the United States.”
Pence, who is running for governor of Indiana, is someone Brody says is “respected by the mainstream media,” and someone who has “the fiscal package, the social package, the national security package.”
