    or Romney true believers to fire up a mob of revolution against the establishment elites that overrode the will of the people.

    It would never work.

      the reactions of Romney -- Mr. Entitlement -- and Gingrich -- The World-Historical Figure.

      These are not two candidates who would go quietly into that good night.

        is as much a rebellion against the Republican establishment as against Democrats. And people are imagining the Tea Baggers will just roll over and say, "Ok we're good with Bush's Mitch Daniels..." (or whoever the GOP establishment anoints)?

        No. It won't play out that way.

          and you can see that they clearly feel Tea-ascendent and are determined to stick it to the GOP establishment and get a "true conservative" for the nomination.  Or else.

            and yes, contrary to what people think, there are true believers for each of the candidates. There are really genuinely people who think Newt can lead the party out of the wilderness, by being a "true conservative." Likewise all the other candidates have fans, even Romney, although people who speak in support of Romney tend to implore others to be "pragmatic," LOL.

              starting some sh*t over there - gotta love him!

              Occupy is not fighting for the rights of a few to sleep outdoors, but for the right of millions to sleep indoors. (VanJones - I think from a tweet).
