This will be Sen. DeMint's Waterloo.
Let me guess --- He was hoping Mitt Romney would win, and The Senate
Republicans would be the new Majority.Since the Tea-Party darlings
actually helped cause the GOP to lose in every category of government
(WhiteHouse, Senate, Congress).He's going to make more $$$ as a
Tea-Party Lobbyist.As a minorty Senator, he could do nothing more than
take a back seat and whine.Doesn't take a crystal ball to
figure this one out...
Glad to see this sign of the demise of the "tea party". I think Ron
Paul and the Tea-Party were the critical (pun intended) factors in Romney
Just so the left knows,The leading candidate to take Jim
DeMint's place is a Black Conservative, who is a leading member of the tea
party.All the while Jim DeMint is still working for conseratives and
the tea party. So while you all live in your fantasies about the tea
party, the reality is quite different.
Think they got it backwards, should read "Our state's gain is the
Heritage Foundation's loss."
@LDS LiberalUnder Harry Reid's leadership the only thing
Senators in the majority have been able to do over the last six years is
whine.@justiredI think the entitlement-oriented
big-government left-wing voters were the critical factor in Romney losing. I
guarantee you very few Tea Party voters actually ended up voting against Romney.
@KimThis is a win-win actually. South Carolina will get
another GOP Senator and the Heritage Foundation will get a solid leader. And
that'll be too bad for the hippies.
