    When Obamacare was introduced, conservatives spawned the tea party to oppose it.

    Now, you're about to nominate the guy who implemented the precedent for Obamacare as your nominee for President.

    So what happened to the bitter opposition to Obamacare?
    Why is Romney apparently the nominee when arguably his most important legislative achievement is something you bitterly opposed and presumably still do?
    Does this mean that the tea party is now ineffectual as a political movement?

    1) Many conservatives hate the fact that Romney had Romneycare
    2) The opposition to Obamacare is still there BIG TIME
    3) He is not the nominee yet, though it seems liberals want him to be the opposition
    4) No, the TP still has influence as a voice of a large group of people

    The Media has made Mitt, not conservatives... Mitt is not doing very well if you look at how the Media wants him so badly on top of the amount of money he has. We will end up with another McCain in the GE, Mitt will prolly do much worse than predicted. The thing Mitt has hurting him the most this time is Ron Paul's following is huge and for the most party won't vote for Mitt. That might be 5-20% of a vote lost, depending if Paul runs third party, endorsed a third party or whatever.

    do you believe the CFR or some other type of nwo group is forcing the media to shove mittens down out throats?

    if not, why is the media pushing him so hard?

    The last statement I agree with but their influence is waning.

    Except that the TEA Party was born during the Bush Presidency. So, your post is bullshit.

    conservatives oppose Obamacare as it involves government in peoples lives.....not JUST becuase of the individual mandate..

    Conservatives stress the individual mandate becuase it is the only part of the plan that is vulnerable in court.

    Romney did for his state what his stae wanted him to do. It doesnt always mean that he did it becuase he thought it was a good idea. He spoke with his advisors, economists, the people....and went in the direction of Romney Care.

    Doing it as governor of a state is not the same as the federal government trumping the state for something like healthcare.

    Many of us see passed it.

    The Rovian RNC is about to nominate Romney, not conservatives. You must understand that being Republican does not necessarily mean you are conservative.

    Simple answer:

    Americans are stupid sheeple who are easily led by the glowing box which is controlled by the same corrupt oligarchy that runs the country.
