In speaking to three or four of these in the past couple of months I sense a lot of air having gone out of the balloon. First, there was a natural let-down after 2010 when "our" guys were elected. Being against something is easier than being for a number of very complicated spending/tax options that were in play.

Second, I think people are waiting for the second round of voting in 2012.

Third, some of the Tea Parties I spoke at went out of their way to be "non-partisan," even though they were clearly Republican, and as such made it difficult to mobilize people behind a party agenda---which you have to have to succeed in Washington.

I am hoping next summer. We need the Tea party to be involved in the 2012 elections.

We need an umbrella conservative group including the Tea Party, something like CPAC but without the vestiges of the tarnished old Republican Party.
