Tea party still has election hopes as chances dwindle


Looking to rebound from a heartbreaking loss in Mississippi’s Senate primary, national tea party groups say they still hope to score a few victories to bolster their ranks as they prepare for policy battles on Capitol Hill.

The chances of unseating a sitting Republican senator in a primary are growing more remote, but tea party groups said there are still some Senate challengers, as well as House candidates, who analysts said might be the movement’s best bet for this election cycle.

“The tea party didn’t do as well as they would have liked in some of the high-profile Senate primaries this year for a variety of reasons,” said Charlie Gerow, who serves on the board of directors of the American Conservative Union. “But there is still a significant number of opportunities for them to win either House races that are open seats, or challenge races, and send some fresh troops to the battle in Washington, D.C. for limited government, fiscal responsibility and [a] more distinctly conservative approach to governing.”

While tea party groups aren’t yet ready to concede the Mississippi primary race to incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran, they are looking elsewhere.

    With any luck the tea party will lose them all and I can have my party back. Remember when government work for all the people. Then maybe the republicans can run someone real instead of the jokes that we have running now.

      Your party back? You a RINO are you?

      1. bobnstuff says:

        No I’m the true republican The tea party is new and doesn’t reflect any of the values that make for good government. They don’t work with other people well, they want to stick their nose in where it doesn’t belong, They are sheep following leaders who would let them fall of a cliff. They say they are doing what our founding fathers intended without a clue about history. it’s the name calling back stabbing little minded a$$ that have hijacked the party that My Grandfather, my Father and I where once proud to work for and with. Never in the history of the party has there bin a more disrespectful un-American group the then tea party.

        1. The_Frog_Prince says:

          Oh really? You have no idea what the Tea Party stands for then by your response. You’re a true RINO. Little things like adhering to the US Constitution mean nothing to you Mr. RINO? Or having a limited federal government the Constitution calls for Mr. RINO. What you just wrote tells me one thing and one thing only Mr. RINO. You are a party HACK and no more and no less.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            Name me one republican from pre Regan that the tea party would like. Heck lf you look at Regan he would be a RINO by your standards. Niether of the Bushs would pass your test, There have been a lot of great republicans in history, look at them and see if any would be tea party members.

          2. The_Frog_Prince says:

            You’re a complete idiot Mr. Moron. Now go be a little party hack who can’t see past the end of his nose. LMAO Who is Regan? You talking about Donald Regan you boob?

          3. bobnstuff says:

            Spell check is a pain. This computer must have been build by a Democrat.

          4. The_Frog_Prince says:

            Stop babbling on like an idiot.

          5. The_Frog_Prince says:

            Never argue with an idiot so I won’t.

          6. bobnstuff says:

            Tax Enough Already. That’s what the tea party stands for. I didn’t see anything about constitution in that statement. The founders of the movement have even said that it has been hijacked.

          7. The_Frog_Prince says:

            Look Moron RINO I won’t do your research regarding what the TPM stands for and how it has evolved. Stop beating your gums so much and do some in-depth research about the Constitutional principles we stand for. The graphic i’stick is to point out what tyrants like you seem to embrace. Mainstream your butt. You’re nothing but a RINO Republican hack like those that now run the Republican Party right into the ground. Stop being an idiot and become better informed rather than think you know what you’re talking about. The same progressives have hijacked both parties. They just take turns screwing this nation up.

          8. bobnstuff says:

            The tea party is as much republican as the KKK is a Christian organization. You hijacked the party or are trying to. Your are the RINO’s. Also if you read history Jefferson was a liberal progressive. He also work with the conservatives of his time.

          9. The_Frog_Prince says:

            You still babbling are you Mr. Moron RINO? The Tea Party isn’t a political party who has dummies like the present RINO’s running it to do their thinking for them. Now make sense or shut up RINO boy. I’ve forgotten more about history than you’ve ever learned Puffnstuff.

        2. Joanne says:

          You’re not a Republican you’re an imbecile! The tea party is the foundation of the Republican Party, and it’s what the party is standing for the Republican creed. The Republican Party is not the party your grandfather and your father knew. It has turned into a corrupt ,progressive, RINO take over. THE TEAPARTY ARE THE CONSERVATIVE NATIONAL REPUBLICANS. What you have now are progressive,treasonous,liars! Get with the program,You FOOL!

          1. bobnstuff says:

            In other words there where no true republicans before the tea party my point has been made . Who are the progressive, treasonous liars? You don’t represent enough republicans to win in the party primaries, You can’t win national elections. Get a clue. Go join the constitiutional party. They have supported your views for years. Oh and just a side note I have been an elected official in the republican party, have you?

          2. The_Frog_Prince says:

            Try McConnell idiot and Cornyn from my state here in Texas. Go away and lick your wounds.

          3. bobnstuff says:

            You mean the McConnell that the Tea Party tried to boot from office for not being conservative enough. Cornyn also had a tea party supported challenger. So I’m waiting for a true republican from the past that would be a tea party member today.

          4. The_Frog_Prince says:

            Yes puffnstuff the same RINO that you idolize.

          5. bobnstuff says:

            Not me, they have no guts. However there are more true republicans the Teddy Boy. Is there something in the water that make Texas elect fools. Perry and then Cruz. If this is the best the tea party has to offer, oh my. On the other hand Ron Paul was honest and frank a good man, to bad about the son.

          6. The_Frog_Prince says:

            There’s something that made your mother have an idiot like you so there you go Mr. RINO. If you’re the best she can offer your family is doomed.

          7. bobnstuff says:

            Name calling just proves how lame you are. The only good thing is that the tea party is impotent and eat their own so when the big money that is trying to buy the government goes away so will the tea party.

          8. The_Frog_Prince says:

            Okay RINO puffnstuff. Back up there near the top Joanne had you pegged son. Instead you prefer to try to have a battle of wits with me. I usually decline to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person like you. If money buys your politics RINO then you are indeed a sad sack.

          9. bobnstuff says:

            If money doesn’t buy politics why are all those outside groups spending millions on local races, Most of the tea party money comes from national groups, Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me.

          10. The_Frog_Prince says:

            Go ask Thad Cochran Mr. RINO.

          11. Joanne says:

            Actually, several of our family members have held office. My Sister, my brother -in -law and husbands grandfather was Mayor of Astoria, Queens. They are TRUE CONSERVATIVES!

          12. The_Frog_Prince says:

            We’re conservatives which is something bobpuffnstuff isn’t and knows nothing about Joanne. Idiots like bob won’t get it until it’s too late. Grandpa his butt.

          13. bobnstuff says:

            In other words You think you know me. Your writing says you are reactionaries not conservatives, You get your history from Sarah, Glen and Rush. Read a book sometime, learn some history, The constitution is not the Bible handed down from the hands of God. It’s and 18th century work, great work mind you but written by men. In order to get it passed the had to add the bill of rights. In other words they had to amend it even before it passed. One of the things that make it a great work is the flexibility of it. There are a number of books written at the time of its passing that explain what the framers meant. You really should read some. As far as being a conservative in most ways I’m probably more conservative then you. I just don’t fall for the crap being handed out.

          14. The_Frog_Prince says:

            In other words Puffnstuff I know you’re a moron and a political party hack attack. Now buzz off son. I have forgotten more history than you have ever learned Puffyfish. I doubt that you are more conservative than I am RINO. You’re a RINO for God’s sake so get over yourself and your political party.

          15. bobnstuff says:

            I would truly surprised that you had spent as much time studying history as I have. I am glade that you say its my political party though. I noticed you never disagree whit what I say you just call me names. You can call me names all day it won’t change the fact that the Tea Party is trying to take over the republican party.

          16. Joanne says:

            Actually, several of our family members have held office. My Sister, my brother -in -law and husbands grandfather was Mayor of Astoria, Queens. They are TURE CONSERVATIVES!

          17. Joanne says:

            True, true!

  • Robert B says:

    The Mississippi democrats own Thad Cochran now so why not run McDaniels as a write in and knock out Cochran. Since there is no real difference between the RINO and the democrat, at this point what difference does it make.

    1. Bill says:

      I have wrote this before. Replace the Liberal Democrats with the GOP (Grand Ole Party) and replace the GOP with the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) for the Republican Party!

      1. Joanne says:

        Sounds right to me Bill!
