    Amy Kramer representing the Tea Party has said the Tea Party will support any GOP candidate running against Obama. They will support Cain, Romney, or any other GOP candidate just as long as Obama doesn't win the re-election. As reported this morning on FOX news.

    This is the death knell of the Tea Party, the GOP like the Borg on Star Trek, will assimilate the Tea Party into itself becoming one party. Resistance is futile. I kind of like that analogy, never realized it until now but the GOP is really like the Borg.

    Why on earth would a "representative" of the tea party say something that undermines the fundamental position that the party originally took and that was the basis for its popularity? :confused:

    That would be the view of the left, I'm sure.

    As a fiscal conservative, I supported the original aims if the tea party, as did many others. That said, over the last 2 years, this original focus has had a whole host of other political positions grafted onto it, whether by the Tea Party itself, the left wing media who want the movement to lose credibility, or the right wing media who want to capitalize on the levels of apparent support.

    I lost faith in the aims of the movement about 18 months ago, but this is the first time I've heard such an unequivocal statement from a Tea Party representative (if that's indeed what she is). Just wondering why any "representative" would shoot their own party so fatally through the foot.

    Which nomination Tea Party or Republican Party?

    But as 44 TP'ers voting for the Partiot act proves they are all Republicans anyway.

    Now we know why they fought so hard against having a leader and platform. They already had one in the GOP.

    To get on Fox News.

    FNC is a Republican Network, and will do anything to undermine the Tea Party before it weakens the RNC in 2012.

    Either you misunderstood the OP or I'm misunderstanding you.
