    of the party. They'll definitely come out holding their noses while voting for Romney, but they won't make calls, they won't go door to door, they won't hold rallies on the Capitol mall, and they aren't going to send money.

    The teaparty has always been a hyper-energized, but niche minority movement that was set up to be successful in a moribund economic environment in an off-year election. Romney will need to energize that base if he's going to offset many of Obama's advantages.

    It'll be a horserace because of the economy, not because of a unified and energized GOP movement. I dare say we take back the House, in fact.
