I wonder if tea baggers will target their own corporate candidate, Rick Scott, while they’re at it:
Starting next year, the huge Tea Party organizer FreedomWorks will urge supporters to punish huge corporations like General Electric and Johnson and Johnson for backing President Obama’s progressive agenda.
In an exclusive review for Whispers of their plan, FreedomWorks president Matt Kibbe says: “Tea Party activists are willing to tackle progressive CEOs just as they tackled progressive politicians. Judging by the results of the midterm elections, progressive CEOs should buckle up, because Tea Party activists are going to give them a very bumpy ride.” [...]
But a Tea Party boycott could be bigger and impact the political world in Washington where corporations are generally viewed as supporting Republicans. “For too long, big business elites have leveraged their special interest group politics to profit from the size and growth of government. The poll demonstrates that the days of easy money through back room deals are over,” says Kibbe.

I guess there is “good” corporate America and “bad” corporate America.
FreedomWorks targeting any corporation is a little like Former Half-Gov FoxPAC McBreadNButter targeting Roger Ailes.
