That you don't consider Bachmann, Perry, Gingrich or Santorum conservative is the problem.
All are even if they aren't perfectly conservative and anyone of them would/would have been a much better nominee than Romney.
I didn't comment on those you mention so by omission you leap to conclusions?
If you look at my posting history, you will not see criticisms of any of these candidates, quite the opposite actually as I have defended them, all except Paul and Romney.
The Tea Party was about bringing in new blood, outsiders if you will...ala Palin and Cain.
That you assume you know where I stand is on the candidates you mentioned is well, an assumption.
You know what they say about assuming, right?
