I had high hopes for the Tea Party as defenders of the Constitution. But since they've been mum about the Usurper and have given Joe Arpaio no support, I can't take them seriously. They also left their own Tea Party member Michele Bachmann hanging out to dry, instead of giving her support for the presidential nomination.
They also treated another Tea Party member Allen West like a lost stepchild, instead of rising to his aid against the Obama conspiracy to unseat him. Obama even unconstitutionally funneled money to West's opponent out of Obama's own campaign war chest.
