If this last election showed anything, it was that America has very strongly rejected the Tea Party. In fact, I'd expect to see people jump off the Tea Party ship like rats off of a sinking boat.
I've been looking at races across the country involving the Tea Party Republicans and they sustained strong losses all over the place.
When Bush won re-election with a smaller margin than President Obama, he very famously stated that he had political clout and he was going to spend it. Republicans called his win a mandate. If thats the case, then the President has a mandate.
The Tea Party was soundly defeated. The new members of Congress are women and minorities for the most part. Take a look up at the scoreboard conservatives...America has spoken.
Members of Congress, vote accordingly.
