    tea partiers didn't worry about pragmatic.  Reagan didn't worry about pragmatic.  GWB didn't worry about pragmatic.

    And from what I've seen, they've been very, very successful in pushing their agenda.

    Where is our side's tea partiers?

        say his 'pragmatism' didn't limit his efforts to change America's direction...for the worse as far as I'm concerned.

        And I would be very happy to have a democratic pres going for broke like Reagan, GWB, or the tea partiers.

        Instead we're stuck with pragmatic dems and President "I'm not a king."
