Hmmmmm… wouldn’t count on it.

TEA Party isn’t looking for someone to defeat Obama; they’re looking for someone who will govern conservatively and rollback the un-Constitutional big-government programs.

Does anyone here actually picture Romney in that role?

Which means getting a more Tea Party Congress all the more important.

Hey rbj, Which means Palin’s call for getting more conservative and libertarian congressionals elected this season is going to have lots of “little helpers”. The only coattails Mitt would have are Rinos. The TPs are going to line up to help Romney? Fat chance of that.

It’s so sorry that we have to elect a president that has to be draged to the right,instead of leading from the right!
