So the tea party was founded in opposition to the individual mandate, government interference in the economy, lobbying, moral weakness, and flip-floping....right? And now theyre on the verge of nominating Newt Gingrich. Hes one of the original creators of the individual mandate! Hes a professional lobbyist, and used to be a huge advocate of the housing GSEs. Hes been on both sides of more topics than romney; have you seen his libya flip flop? He has the moral fiber/empathy of a schizoid; who divorces a wife that has cancer? It would be amazingly ironic if the tea party got Newt Gingrich nominated. The irony just might be too much for me, idk if i could handle it.
