    Are you a tea party supporter, or general republican?

    I'm a common sense Conservative. I support any politico that displays an acceptable amount of common sense.

    Just wondering, many Conservatives of the general GOP do not like the tea party. I know Carl Rove and Gingrich seem to loath them.

    I would support a Democrat that exhibited appropriate common sense, but so far those are few and far between. I can't even think of one, actually.

    I have not witnessed common sense in our political system from anyone, Democrat or Republican. Regan cut taxes and increased spending as has everyone since in some fashion.

    Are you sure that you are not confusing Senator DeMint with someone else? Off the top of my head I can't think of a senator that better personifies what it means to be a pure conservative by today's standard.

    What I'm more surprised by is what senators did not join. Where were Ron Johnson, Marco Rubio, Pat Toomey, just to name a few. It seems like all these senators were wise enough to ride the wave of Tea Party support to get elected, and now that they are in office they have ditched them.
