    Is this really a surprise? They want their country back.

    The Teabuggers are fizzling out, they haven't accomplished anything and point their anger at the wrong people.

    I liked a lot about the Tea Party. But, some of their views were too right winger and turned off a lot of potential support. This kept them from obtaining critical mass. Now that they have been co-opted by the Republican party they have become pretty much irrelevant.

    The Tea Party is a grass roots movement against large government intrusion into individuals' rights.

    Therefore, people only become passionate about the movement during elections (2010).

    I wouldn't expect many voters to relate to a grassroots movement in 2011 since there's no election.

    Neither the Repubs or Dems want to believe this.
