    I have been saying for years now that the republican party can not win with the tea party or without them.

    They created this monster and it is turning on them as a natural course of the beast they created.

    Before the Tea Party was called the Tea Party, its goal was to stop John McCain from getting nominated.

    Their choice back then, over McCain?

    Mitt Romney.

    lol

    Good Point. I doubt the Tea Party will be passified if Romney chose one of them as his VP, but he mght try. Can you see Batcrazy Bachmann as his VP candidate?

    It will be interesting to see the tantrum the Tea Party throws when Mitt Romney gets the Republican nomination.

    I look for them to either force their own VP on the ticket or run a third party ticket

    Either way, Obama wins

    We, as T.E.A Partiers can't allow Mitt Romney to be the Republican candidate. That being said, if Mitt is the nominee, who do you really think I'm voting for? Obama? You all need to pull your fuggin' heads out!

    Did I like McCain? No. Did I vote for Obama? No. But I'm confident that you Libs will never pull your heads out of your asses and nominate someone else that is more electable.

    The nomination process is all about issues, none of which you Libs will dare touch. Economy. Debt. Wars. Every issue out there is like a 3rd rail for you guys and you don't even know it. :lol:

    That's more or less what I'm hoping for. I'd like to see Ron Paul drop out of the party and take the libertarians with him. They really need to understand that the Republican party is no home for freedom lovers. I could be the best opportunity in ages to establish a mainstream libertarian party. They won't beat Obama - certainly not the first time around, but it could be the start of something good.
