It really is an idiocy to complain about election results when people on the supposed right sat out the last election. This is a list from The Other McCain by Smitty in which he argues The Vichy GOP Thinks Tea Parties Should Just Shut Up & Fall In Line, Or Something. This is the list of issues that might have been dealt with if we had elected those more to the Tea Party right.
ObamaCare is still a river of lies, with no hope of repeal
The IRS is an affront to all things American
Ground truth on Benghazi remains elusive
We have no hope of a reasonable budget
The Federal Reserve is still running amok
The immigration sellout seems a question of when, not if
Border and national security seem a shambles
As these things go, I am as Tea Party in my values as anyone I know, more so in fact. But all of these would have been more than dealt with had Romney won in 2012 and there had been more senators elected with an “R” in brackets after their name however centralist they may have been. Perfection is the enemy of the good, but Romney was more than just good, he was exceptional. We won’t see his like again, particularly someone as near electable as he was.
