Why don't you STFU about promoting the liberal corruption of the GOP? This Tea Party guy is sending the exact right message. As long as he doesn't endorse Obama, he's all good to me. If we get two bad candidates, I'm going to exercise my free speech to say we got two bad candidates.
a candidate who may not share all or even most of your values but at least does NOT HATE the USA.
I don't care what's in his head, I just care what power he's going to be capable of wielding. A gridlocked Obama for 4 more years will probably implement a lot less liberal policy than an empowered Romney for 4-8 years. Very many Republicans are dying to go liberal with Romney because they either believe in things like homosexual marriage or they believe it will get them more votes. If Obama is in office, they'll maintain their opposition to his policy out of fear of Tea Party primary attacks. While we can "primary" liberal Republicans, it seems like presidential elections have proven too big for Tea Partiers to wrangle, especially against Romney's money. So I doubt we'd be able to primary him in 2016 if we couldn't defeat him this time.
A reelected Obama will not be "gridlocked"; if he wins another term, he will almost certainly have a Democrat Senate, and the GOP will have a smaller majority in the House. That is what is so dangerous in assuming the choice betweeen Obama and Romney wouldn't matter, because Romney would have a significantly more conservative Congress to deal with.
My point is that the dynamics of the campaign will dictate down-ballot elections, and if the electorate favors Obama, they will give Harry Reid the majority again. If you thought things were bad since 2008, just imagine what's in store in a second Obama term.
