Still work to do Tea Party Patriots! Next is for Steelman in Missouri in their Primary which Sarah has already endorsed. Then to Georgia for the new seat addition (District 9. Martha Zoller, radio talk show host and Tea Partier is going to a runoff against a guy named Collins who is an establishment guy from the Deal administration.

Hopefully, Sarah will see this race and get behind another true conservative and would make Zoller the first Republican woman from Georgia in the House.

Any others out there? Lets organize an action list and get behind these people as well.

Looks like Mack in Florida but I don’t consider him to be of a conservative stripe but he can beat Nelson and if so, with the current list of shoe-ins the Senate goes back to the Republicans.

How sad that Dick Cheney, who has truly been a hero of mine since I was just a girl! He must have suffered from some O2 deprivation... trashed Sarah.
Ass, thank God for Liz!

I respect a lot of what DC has done for America. But his insistence on sticking to ‘the party’ instead of the country is a huge letdown for me. Once upon a time, when ‘the party’ stood for the things we believe in, that was a good thing. But those times are behind us. Today, ‘the party’ stands for the same things the Dems did 20 years ago. They were the wrong things then and suicidal now.

While Palin is not perfect, she is 90%+ correct on her political views IMO. And I wish she was the GOP nominee. But the old guard ‘party before principle’ BS has prevented that. So far. But id she keeps building up all these wins, by 2016 she may need none of the old guard at all.

I hope.

This is how the New York Times covered this massive upset as far as Palin goes.

This is their only mention of Palin.

“With indications that an upset was likely, Tea Party celebrities including Sarah Palin, Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina, Glenn Beck and Rick Santorum came to speak on Mr. Cruz’s behalf over the last several days.”

Mrs Palin,
The ball is now in your court. In just over thirty days, the Republican party will name Mit Romney as it's nominee. You probably will not be welcome at their convention but you can take the opportunity to announce a new political party. The Tea Party! Then announce that YOU are to be the Tea Party Candidate for President.
Go Sara Go

Figure it out, Sarah is doing everything she can to keep a new party from popping up.

She’s rebuilding the GOP.

I have yet to see one PDSer on FR or anywhere articulate the logic in trashing and undermining a person whose politics are lockstep with conservative values. Especially one with her level of power/influence.

But they sure do seem to love repeating the lib/msm BS. I wonder why.

The problem is that even if She or anyone else gets a bunch of actual Conservs in there, the very fabric of the party is riddled with libs, yes men and moderates at the aide/worker level.

Now I admit that today is a bit late to start a party for Nov., but in all honesty, emotional attachment of lifelong GOP voting aside, what happens hypothetically we get enough TEA in the GOP to ‘claim it’?

It’s most likely that the people at the structure level will not be on board with the new program and will do everything possible to get the old guard back into power. That’s just reality.

So a new party post 2012 is IMO a lot better for both us and America. It will be fighting against a destroyed Dem party and a greatly weakened GOP. Thus, no better time to step up and grab the ring. And it will have 1-1/2 and 3-1/2 years respectively to make or break it. But to succeed either way, as a new party or a refabbed GOP, the rot at low/mid levels has to be tosses out with the rot at the top levels. All connections and ‘favors’ to and from the past must be eliminated.

Yup. Why reinvent the wheel? For years Rush has said how stupid it would be to go to a third-party and watch 1992 happen all over again. The Republican Party has to be rebuilt from within. An sitting on one's ass and wishing on a star ain't going to make it happen.

If Indications of victory were so likely,
where were all the DC GOPe’s in the Senate.
You know, the ones who supported Lugar and Crist?

Palin may never be President. But it is clear that her mission to send conservatives to DC is working quite well.
The political class fears her, and with good reason.

Her REAL conservative Army steamrolls the GOPe’s astroturffers.

Gertie,
You somehow have confused me as a Republican. That party left me around 1988.
No, I am looking for a conservative party to support. the closest we have is the Libertarian Party, but I do disagree with a lot of their platform, so I am searching and doing what I can to to find a conservative party. The twentieth century gave us ten Republican Presidents. Three of that ten were conservative. Thirty percent does not make a conservative party. Seventy percent makes a liberal party that is slightly to the right of the Democrat party. I can see damn little difference between Romney and Obama, so it really makes no difference who wins.

Someone needs to remind “Dick” Cheney, that he, Rove and Bush
finished with one of the lowest approval ratings in American
History. And as a result, gave us Obama.
Hey Dick. What did all that “experience” you, Rove and Bush
get us????????

Obama!

The Whigs once believes something like that.

Perhaps it’s true in this case. Perhaps not. But with the GOP POing everyone but the true believers, they are not crying out for salvation. And as Cruz’s GOP assistance Free blowout shows, they are NOT needed to win elections for conservatives.

Channel 11 in Houston..”

I don’t know about you but I got so tired of seeing back-to-back anti-Cruz ads. If NCIS would move to another channel, I would never have to watch any of the alphabet stations any more.

The spin is in. I’m sure Dewhurst knows why he lost the race but it is easier to blame someone else for their misfortune rather than admit those reasons publicly. Obama blames Bush for his troubles, Dewhurst blames Palin. Same song, same party with just a different letter after their last name. Politicians seem to think that being honest is a major character flaw.

Hmm, perhaps she should be asked why she, a conservative's conservative, is supporting Romney for the presidency this time around?

I, for one, would be interested in what she would have to say regards that.

As a matter of fact, i wonder who cruz is supporting for the presidency? After all, he too, is a conservative, whose views are well received.

And that would doom any third party effort. Take a look at the history of the demise of the Whig party and the rise of the GOP during the 1800s. A third party needs more than just a single candidate (the Libertarians should be able to attest to this)

You're either supporting Obama, or you're voting for whoever is on the Republican ticket against Obama.

Any other choice (voting third party or abstaining) is in Obama's favor.

Anyone who doesn't understand this is too stupid to feed themselves unassisted.

Well we can only hope that they stick to their conservative beliefs. As in not rallying for a liberal as president.

Because that would be a stupid thing to do after everything they campaigned for. Wouldn’t it? I mean what point is there in Rah Rahing all these solid conservative themes, values, issues and philosophy that we know work, only to elect a man against them all?

It would seem like they didn’t believe what they were saying. You know...just like the Dem/Lib politicians. And voters. And I can only hope they are smarter than that.
