    It is interesting to see the decline of the Tea Party and the move by the Republican Party to a presidential candidate who calls himself "progressive."

    The world is always moving to be more progressive....even the Republicans.

    I guess the tea party experiment is over, they finally found out that there is actually such a thing as being too far right.

    Isn't it ironic that Republicans chose their most progressive presidential candidate?

    We have had exactly one primary. One. The guy is from the state next door. He is spending a ton of money. For the vast majority of Republicans he is like the last choice.

    and come the general election, if he is the nominee, he will get trounced in a manner that would be reminiscent of McGovern or Landon. Too many Republicans will stay at home to bother voting for him, and the independents usually feel that if you are going to vote for a liberal, you might as well go the whole deal and vote Obama. This year the Tparty will be only madder. And next year they will be bigger.

    Obama will always be known as the candidate who one through opposition research rather than campaining on his own ideas, which are sadly lacking.

    The Tea party isn't over and they aren't too right....YOU are just too left. Wanting taxes cut and the doing something about the deficit is not too far right. Only a blind lefty like you can't see that.

    There problem is that anyone crazy enough to appeal to the base can't be smart enough to win the general election.

    So Republicans always have to chose someone who is more liberal than they are.

    Cutting taxes increases the deficit.

    In fact most of the National Debt was created by Reagan and Bush cutting taxes for the rich.
