The OP is simply part of the status quo and wants that garbage to continue. Tea party types support the constitution, paying our bills, upholding freedom. The reason we get in mess after mess is due to status quo and typical politicians who worry more about themselves.

You want change in DC, we need change in politicians. Electing the same type of people we have been doesn't cut it. We need MORE Tea Party folks, not less. More conservatism in DC not less.

Liberals and other phony hack Republicans want nothing but the same. If the Tea Party had more of a role over the past decade or so, we wouldn't of had the economic mess we did. A mess caused by democrats and establishment GOP. To want more of typical establishment is idiotic

Default GOP civil war brewing- Establshment vs Tea Party

Karl Rove's group, American Crossroads, is promising to try to block Tea Party nominees from winning primaries in Republican races. The "Establishment" Republicans are tired of watching far-right morons getting nominated by the base, only to lose in general elections:

This will be fun to watch . The GOP is like Dr Frankenstein, trying to get his monster back into the lab.

Rottsa ruck, guys!

Didn't you post that the Tea Party is dying off in some other thread ?

What big "civil war" do you see when there is only one side showing up ?

"The organizers of American Crossroads hope to bring electoral victory to the Republican Party by defeating unelectable tea party candidates in GOP primary races. The new super PAC, called the Conservative Victory Project, will be run by American Crossroads president Steven Law and is supported by former Bush political adviser Karl Rove.

They tried to capitalize on the crazy, but when they found out the crazy was not selling, they kicked the crazy to the curb.

Always entertaining to see the them eat their babies.

That is sort of Rove's point, isn't it? Sharron Angle, Todd Akin etc.?

You may not be aware of this, but a US political group took the name of a sexual practice involving a man's ******* and his partner's face, then turned it into something really tawdry, almost obscene.
