Read it and Weep, anybody supporting the candidate promoted by the GOP, or the candidate willing to "take one for the time".

The only person with enough insider knowledge of DC, who is hated enough by the establishment, and enough of a bastard to change DC and the powers that be is Newton Leroy Gingrich.

DON'T EMBOLDEN THE GOP...

Newt is the one with 2010 inside him...

GOT PHONE? Make calls into DE on Monday for Newt:

Looks like the Tea Party sent Orin Hatch a message. They are still fighting for Walker in Wisconsin. West is one of the heroes of the Tea Party movement and he has gained the respect of many conservatives.
This election is so vital. Yes, we sent them a message in 2010 and we cannot undo all the time, effort and hard work to vote for a clear rino like Romney.
Romney has had to spend millions to obtain his delegates and he has 19 states to go..he is not winning a clear majority. He will not win against Obama.
YOU are right on about Newt. Name ONE living conservative that has accomplished as much as Gingrich did as speaker...there aren't any.
“”Republican Revolution” of 1994

Main article: Republican Revolution

In the 1994 campaign season, in an effort to offer an alternative to Democratic policies and to unite distant wings of the Republican Party, Gingrich and several other Republicans came up with a Contract with America, which laid out ten policies that Republicans promised to bring to a vote on the House floor during the first hundred days of the new Congress, if they won the election.[41] The contract was signed by Gingrich and other Republican candidates for the House of Representatives. The contract ranged from issues such as welfare reform, term limits, tougher crime laws, and a balanced budget law, to more specialized legislation such as restrictions on American military participation in United Nations missions.

In the November 1994 elections, Republicans gained 54 seats and took control of the House for the first time since 1954. Longtime House Minority Leader Bob Michel of Illinois had not run for re-election, giving Gingrich, the highest-ranking Republican returning to Congress, the inside track at becoming speaker. The midterm election that turned congressional power over to Republicans “changed the center of gravity” in the nation's capital.[42] Time magazine named Gingrich its 1995 “Man of the Year” for his role in the election

You are right, and I can think of a lot of other conservative heroes who have been elected...

But the sad thing about this article is how the establishment, with their hold on power at the national, state and local levels, still pretty much considers the Tea Party a necessary annoyance...

And that is why I think so many TPers get co-opted once they get to DC, the see how things are set up and have a real dilemma...

I posted your little original article with my reply because I hope others will read it scrolling through. I already did a C&P earlier... (I always steal your stuff) :)

I am hearing REALLY GOOD THINGS FROM PEOPLE IN DELAWARE... KEEP PRAYING!!

I am sorry to pee on your parade, but newt has been the establishment since he was born. newt on illegals, cap and tax, scozzafava, sitting on a couch....any couch...with pelosi eliminates this jackwagon from my vote. Pelosi is insane. Newt would do the moon colony while taxing us more. He is unstable. His wife is a control freak. No thanks. Palin should be chanted long and loud at the convention.

What’s that old saying? “Win the fight, but lose the war”!!! The GOP elite can take full blame for this whole debacle.

Thanks for this thread.

_____________

HEY ROMNEY!

Look us in the eye,
And never, EVER lie!
If you mean what you say,
Then say what you mean!

Stand and deliver
What you plan to do,
In case you haven’t noticed,
No one likes you.

Our line in the sand,
Puts your “Romney Road to Ruin”
Alongside “Obama’s Wrong Track.”
So stop your damned “Smiley-Face,”
And attack, Attack, ATTACK!

We will oppose you in Tampa,
For what you lack,
We want America to be back
On the Constitution Track.

Do you have it in you?
I doubt that you do,
You see a Pinko future,
And we see Red, White and Blue.

Correct, but it's not an analysis, really just a bunch of quotes from people in attendance... Nothing they can really spin too much...

This article is a J-O-K-E. Tell it to Richard Lugar, tell it to Orrin Hatch. They are shitting in their Depends over Tea Party-endorsed upstarts, and Lugar is going down at the very least. We are not done by a longshot.

I agree. The article isn't about tea party elections, it's about them being treated like 2nd class citizens by the GOP elite, which holds the reins of power for the most part.

I think, election wise, there are some good candidates for the TP just starting to get noticed.

And, yes, Hatch, if you saw him give his statement afterwards, he was livid and trying very hard to hide it.

Mike Castle. Barack Obama actually called him to extend his sympathy when O'Donnell beat him in the primary... that was a great yuk!!

Palin supports Newt. Todd Palin officially endorsed Newt.

Better luck next time.

Yada yada yada yada...

I could take the time and post a link to rebut each of your pathetic anti-Newt, fact-challenged statements, but I won’t bother... I don’t think you have the intellectual apparatus necessary to do anything but spit out talking points...

Sorry for you...

LOL Yeah GOPe, we’ve crawled back under our rocks. We’re working tirelessly to defeat you in races all across the country. There is no time to come out with flags waving. You’ll be hearing from us in the ‘12 elections, just like you did in ‘10.
