    ..the teaparty is most angry about, and it's not big business - —By Kevin Drum

    This is a year ago but big business and wall street bail outs (which was the original motivator for the tea party) seems to have changed or been usurped by the Rove types - big money iows.
    The three biggest enemies of the TP:
     • Health care (Obama)
     • Not doing as they want
     • government spending (Obama)
    So the teaparty who originally would have had zero to do with Romney (big business & wall street) now has had their priorities taken over.

    The teaparty is no longer the same "base", and will be less dangerous or at least easier for Romney to deal with imo.

    Tea party hatred of Obama is what will matter the most

      Obamacare--like they have any idea what the mandate is about
      Govt spending--translate to:  cut entitlement spending, raid social security
