Tea Party Leader blames “weak-kneed” Romney, Republicans for loss to Obama...

According to one Tea Party leader, the reason for Mitt Romney’s loss to President Barack Obama is that he was not conservative enough and was “weak-kneed” and a throwback to Bob Dole and John McCain...

In a press statement, entitled “Tea Party Vows "No Retreat" and a subtitle “Promise to search out candidates with clear conservative records; no more Dole-McCain-Romney nominees”, the group leaders said the following:

A group Leaders of the Tea Party News Network (TPNN) and TheTeaParty.net offered an unflinching assessment of Election Day results. Todd Cefaratti, editor of the Tea Party News Network said, "We're disappointed in Governor Romney's loss. But this goes to the heart of what we have been saying all along. Bob Dole didn't win. John McCain didn't win. And now Mitt Romney hasn't won. The lesson the GOP and Americans need to learn is that weak-kneed Republicans do not get elected. Conservatives do."

"The Tea Party has not yet begun to fight. It's time for a wholesale reassessment of the D.C. establishment politicians and party grandees who have no commitment or courage to reduce the size of government. We now have another four years ahead of us with Barack Obama leading the charge against liberty," TPNN News Director Scottie Hughes said. "There were some bright spots tonight from Ted Cruz to Jeff Flake, to a decisive win in the U.S. House where Tea Partiers have a mandate to stand against Obama's big government second-term agenda.

Man, these guys just don't get it! Do they really think that their version of a hard right candidate could win the Hispanic, Black, Asian, woman, LGBT vote et al?

..Or do they really think that there are enough angry white males out there to put them over the top?

These damn fools will make sure the Republicans never elect another president.

The Republicans need to get back toward the middle a bit and quit with the social issues agenda.

Romney won this election based on the white male vote but lost horribly with women and minorities.

If the GOP had not launched the war on women, Romney would be number 44 today.

You read the bile on here...

It's the current "angry white man" syndrome, acting out their displeasure on anyone different/diverse.

Strange ...they actually believed an attitude like they showed would work, in a voting situation.


Even worse, when they actually tried to obtain votes, it was poorly veiled deceit, tricks, and contemptuous dishonesty...

Face it, when SL is "able" to take a leadership role(even here), our educational system HAS FAILED !!!

I'd explain further, but personal info is a tool, I won't provide to the rabble.

Not everyone in this country wants YOUR religious views in our government. It seriously inflames me to think that you tea partiers can cram your beliefs down our throats and get away with it. You are no more than the failed christian coalition bunch that tried the same crap before and got washed out of the picture. You need to keep your views to yourself, run your life the way you see fit and let us do the same.

So, explain to us "Margo" how, free Condoms, allowing Gay Marriage, and federal funding of Abortion get us out of this economic mess your guy failed to fix? As usual, the emotional social issues which have no bearing on the economy took center stage for the left because it was easier to bash the Christian and than to actually have a plan to fix the real problem. Thanks for playing Margo!

What a joke, you must be an angry white male because no one spews more bile on here than you.
An angry white Slewer Rat, imagine that!

My comment has nothing to do with the election, I actually make a lot of money in a poor economy.
It's about the hypocrisy of trolls like you, AKA, the Slewer Rat.
You're not fooling anyone.

Actually, the economy HAS improved quite a bit under Obama.
It seems to me that it was the Republicans who have been forcing social issues into the spotlight, not the Democrats.
Giving away condoms is so wise that it shouldn't be an issue among anyone, right or left.
America told you what it thinks of your attempts to force your religious views on us - you should listen.
Truth, First of all America doesn't dictate how I think or what I support. I will espouse my religious views anywhere and every where I care to and I will do under the protection of the first amendment which allows freedom of speach.

PS: You seem to ducking my question on the mutliple moniker issue? What gives? Either put or apologize for being a LIAR!
