    I can't help but comment on all the loony tune libs crying that the Tea Party wasn't effective because a few elections were lost, where a traditional Republican might have won.

    HELLO!!! THAT is the point. The Republican Party has been ALMOST as bad as the Dems. We, the Tea Party, are trying to clean up our side!!! Just like the left should, but won't. It's like rooting out a cancer. We are doing it on our side. We won some (Kentucky, Florida) and lost some (Delaware, Alaska, Nevada). But guess what? Nothing is cleansed overnight. This is just the first step. We can't truly find our conservative power in this country until we root out some of the liberal cancer on the right. And we've done a pretty good job so far. 2012 we'll root out some more RINOS, and in the meantime, also defeat some liberal Dems.

    Tea Party folks, it's a great first start. The Obama presidency has been dealt a crippling blow, and the Senate will be next in 2012, hopefully along with the presidency. No one expected the Tea Party to win 100% of the races we were in. The RINO's and liberals are entrenched strong in our government. It's gonna take time, but it's a helluva start.

    A few? Yes. However, O'Donnell, Miller, Buck and Angle lost seats that could have easily been won by less extreme candidates. Are you trying to say that a Democrat in the seat is better than a Republican who is not as conservative as you want them to be? If so, congratulations. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

    unreliable 'friends' are more of a hazard than an enemy you can count on.

    Clean up? Clean up how? You have tea party candidates advocating for violent revolution, preaching religious and ethnic bigotry, calling the President the "worst" in history, shilling for big business and the rich, playing "dress up" in Nazi uniforms, wanting to eviserate the United States Constitution, and preaching lockstep fealty to the notion that compromise is not an option.

    I wish people were paying more attention. Perhaps when they are living in cardboard boxes..

    That is exactly what we are saying... You still don't understand that Conservatives have principles... one thing libs don't. We are tired of Democrat light Republicans giving the party a bad name....

    Yank, you better get use to a Conservative country. This is only the beginning... You may want to move to Europe.

    Before I pack my bags, let me ask you, as a "conservative", what is the plan now to shape the country the way YOU want it? Based on the mid term results, all I see is gridlock for the next two years. Now, many "conservatives" see this as a good thing, however I am trying to figure out how gridlock is going to accomplish anything you Tea Partiers wanted. SO, what's the plan?

    Buck barely lost. Miller would have crushed the Democrat. That's Lisa Murkowski's problem, not his.

    Would Harry Reid have rolled over for Sue Lowden? Would Obama/Biden/Coons just let Mike Castle win Biden's seat?

    Besides Mark Kirk, where were the moderates picking up open seats or defeating incumbents? Who were Lindsay Graham's candidates?

    Stop Obama from more destructive social spending and reverse as much of what he has already done as possible.

    For the first national election go around, the Tea Party supported candidates did very well. No real national leader, federal election dollar support or long standing political networks. Interesting you have to go to entrenched politicans who survived an election for proof that something went wrong.

    And with the gridlock situation that we now face in Congress, how and when do you hope to get any of this accomplished?
