maybe the OP thought Romney was representing the Tea Party.
I realize that all tea partiers are Republicans, but not all Republicans are tea partiers. The GOP retained the house, not the tea party. The tea party candidates by and large lost, and big time. Romney beat the tea party candidate in the primaries, and he beat him badly

a few EVANGELICAL teapartiers (not about what the tea party was) were decimated


the TEApparty is about ...Taxed Enough Already...not religious social issues...those that lost their way are getting cut

No! We will redouble our efforts and work that much harder. And you are mistaken if you think we had only unseating Obama as our goal.

We will be even stronger.

Pretty much everyone associated with the tea party, whether it was the traditional tea party like Ron Paul or the evangelical wing like Akin, lost big time. If you think the tea party had a splendid year, than good for you, let me know how that works out for you.

I can't think of a SINGLE teabagger who isn't a religious or social conservative loon. NOT ONE.

I was going to say Ron Paul but his views on abortion put him in the social conservative camp

Ron Paul IS NOT a teabagger. He's a libertarian.

Teabaggers are very much pro-war and pro-defense spending. Ron Paul is NOT.
