Default Re: The President Obama Thread

The Tea Party definitely has influence, though how much is debatable. For all the lip service the Republican establishment gives the group, they still somehow ended up with Mitt Romney, a Mormon, that a lot of Tea Party types dismissed as a New England "RINO".

On the other hand, Romney had to pander so much to the religious right- the Tea Party that it actually started hurting him with moderates.

He did throw Todd Aiken under the bus. But then they did try to get Billy Graham's support, even though his website called Romney's church a cult.

Odd bedfellows to say the least.
