    Well I won't say all people did, but the majority of people wanted Romney that voted in the primaries, so that is what the GOP went with. So in a way, yes the GOP would have had people voted (as a majority) for a tea party member.

    I'll say that Romney looked more like a Tea Partier than an establishment Republican. Let's don't ahead of ourselves, either; it's not like Obama got some gigantic majority of the popular vote and the groups that voted for him in a majority are looking for a handout. It wasn't the self sufficient working folks that voted for Obama. Hence the reason I say that the Tea Party comes closer to representing the working folks than any other political power. Does that speak to the Tea Party's popularity one way or the other? No, it doesn't, but it doesn't take away from from my opinion that their agenda is more in line with the self sufficient class.

    Then you were duped, because people had Romney pegged correctly as someone who will try to be whatever it takes to get elected, however change afterwords.

    You're right about Obama, I don't believe that he has a mandate to do whatever he wants. That is why I think he is a lousy leader and didn't vote for him. Like Bush, Obama is a divider.

    Sorry, but that simply is not true about people on welfare. I know many self-reliant people that actually pay taxes that voted for Obama. Your hyperbole of everyone voting for Obama being on welfare of some sort is just silly.

    In fact I also know some on welfare that voted for Romney. Generalizaions does not equal reality.

    I wasn't duped. I was never impressed with Romney, anyway. I was rooting for Cain and Gingrich.

    I'm talking about groups taken as a whole, not every single individual.

    Again, there are exceptions to every rule, just like not every black person voted for Obama.

    However, every group--blacks, single women, union members, government employees, latinos--as a majority, voted for Obama with one hand, while the other hand is palm up waiting for the hand out that they feel entitled to. There's no escaping that fact.

    And every corporate CEO, business owner, millionaire, as a majority, voted for Romney for coporate welfare and tax cuts for the wealthy while sticking it to the poor and middle class. There's no escaping that fact

    Generalizations are fun! Thank you!

    What corporate welfare are you talking about, exactly? "Corporate welfare", is another one of those talking points that is just that, a talking point, because "corporate welfare" doesn't actually exist. Oh, wait, are you talking about the corporate welfare like what Solyndra got??

    The difference, that you don't seem to realize, is that corporations actually do something for the economy; entitlement classers don't. Entitlement classers contribute absolutely nothing to society.

    Those states also have the largest minority populations.

    Looks like republicans may have had enough from the tea party. Could the republicans be ready to cave and increase taxes on the wealthy? Might we actually get a true conservative proposal involving less spending all around, and some increased revenue from the rich and spoiled? Have the republicans actually learned a lesson from this past election?
    Did they learn from the 2010 election when they overwhelmingly won power back in the House thanks to nutty tea party people focusing on limited govt? Nope, they nominated a moderate and started demonizing libertarians and tea partiers. And they lost.

    I guess you don't know maqny working people then because i know a whole bunch of them who voted for Obama. You can pretend that it is only the people with their hands out that vote for him, but that is not going to win you an election. if you keep insulting everyone who doesn't make themselves known as a republican you are going to be very small and alone in the future.
