    You mean a credible candidate other then Ron Paul.

    I didnt read your artical, cause your just a dumb neocon.

    BTW hows that whole Rick Perry thing workin out for ya?? Are you going to go with the 'brother' or are you going to take the 'flip flopper'.

    Hope you like Obama, cause unless Republicans unite behind Paul its 4 more years of THIS.

    The Tea Party could never put forth a "credible" Candidate because no matter what candidate the Tea Party puts forth, they will be human and flawed. Because they exist in real life. And because of that the media, as well as the author of the article, will see these flaws and immediately cariature that candidate so that they become "uncredible" in their eyes.

    In other words, they are begging the question.

    I am a Tea Party member--and am O.K. with Mitt Romney if he wins the nomination--:cuckoo:

    The Tea Party has been hugely successful--because we have DRAGGED everyone to the right including Mitt Romney--:cuckoo:

    A mostly accurate assessment, but it missed one fundamental point:

    In order for the TPM to do the things needed to promote a successful candidate, it would not be able to exist as the TPM. Its raison d'ĂȘtre is the very antithesis of the mainstream political process, both liberal and conservative, democratic and republican.

    I think its cute when people attack other people based on silly grammer rules that were invented by dead white men.

    Shows that there is really nothing else there. Nothing was learned past 7th grade.
