The tea party is is made up of puppets being run by an elite group to serve their needs and not the needs of the people

I know some of you enjoyed the banter that you had with Spathy, however I banned him and typical of the far right he disregarded rules and procedures and made another name to circumvent the ban. He's gone again.
To my worried friends, the fat lady is still warming up. Yes, Romney advanced amazingly in the popular voter polls. However Obama's popularity did not decline by much, only a half a percentage point in the aggregate polls. Romney's popularity did jump by just over 4 points. More importantly Obama did not dip in the pre-vote electoral college count and he still holds the lead in battleground states.
I found this article below very telling as it was just a few months ago that politicians were clamoring for tea party support and now so many of them want no affiliation with the outcast group.
Brad Schneider’s Tea Party allegations rile Robert Dold in House race

Republican U.S. Rep. Robert Dold wants Democratic challenger Brad Schneider to pull or correct a campaign commercial Dold claims distorts his political record.
Schneider isn’t budging, however.
Dold, who paints himself as a moderate and has distanced himself from the conservative Tea Party, attacked the ad during a joint 10th District candidate interview last week at the Daily Herald’s headquarters in Arlington Heights.
“The Houston Chronicle actually corrected that, and I’m calling on my opponent to actually take down that ad because I’m not a Tea Party loyalist,” said Dold, of Kenilworth.
