You guys might still be active and holding your own meetings, but the bigger tea party movement, with the large protests and the in-your-face confrontations against the democrats and against the RINOs in the republican party, are no longer there to get the message heard, loud and far. Quietly organizing is not as effective as getting the big crowds organized and notice and broadcast.
I’m planning to vote for Gingrich. However, things look dismal in Florida if Romney wins the primary here. If we had been as organized and effective as we were in 2009/2010, Romney would not even be running for the nomination of the GOP.
So, you guys can be dismissive of my remarks all you want, but I’m calling it as I see it, and I’m pretty sure that there are millions other feeling the same as me.
I don’t dismiss your remarks at all. Nor will I condescend to welcoming you back to a fight you never left. Just watch and see what happens. Just watch.
I don’t know what world you are living in.
The Tea Party was written off in 2010 because of losses, as you pointed out, in a few high profile areas. The fact is those candidates still changed the nature of the election (Harry Reid had to actually spend money and offer more bribes to unions in NV) and they helped elect almost 1,000 Republicans in 2010. Many conservative.
To say in just 15 months since that they are now impotent is just silly.
