Scott Brown(R-MA)-2010 victory was due to-

The birth of the Tea Party Movement, the fight over DEM Party having 60 votes in the US Senate, seat being formerly held by EMKennedy, defeat of Obama/RomneyCare, and add insult to injury- Coakley-D running a lackluster campaign.
2012- Top tier Democrats like Markey-D,Capuano-D,and Lynch-D decided against running due fear Brown-R was going to win re-election. Democrats united behind Oklahoma born Harvard Professor Liz Warren-D who ended up unseating Brown-R by a 8 point margin.
2013 MA Special- Brown-R decided not to run against Markey-D.
2014 MA Governor- The Democratic nominee is likely to be Grossman-D
If Brown-R runs and wins the 2014 MA Governors Race- any chance he seeks the GOP nomination for POTUS in 2020-if a Democrat is in the WhiteHouse or 2024 if a Republican is in the WhiteHouse.
Mitt-R decided not to seek re-election to a second term as MA GOV in 2006, ran for POTUS in 2008-but lost the GOP nomination to McCain-R, 2012- he ran again for POTUS-won the GOP nomination but lost in the November General Election.

1. Tea Party motivated morons voted for a Moderate Republican

because THAT was the purpose that they were CREATED to fulfill.

The GOP establishment created the Tea Party monster, and then unleashed it thinking it would only try to eat Democrats.

Wrong.

Their monster is now running a muck. And it will eat anything in its path.

2. After Barack Obama-D became POTUS in 2009.

THE GOP/Tea Party won 2009 NJ GOV Race (Christie-R) and 2009 VA GOV Race(McDonnell-R). Corzine(D-NJ) was an unpopular incumbent and Deeds(D-VA) was a sucky candidate.
MA Special for Kennedy's seat occured in Jan 2010.
2010 Midterm Election.
US Senate-
Democrats lost ND and IN -open seat elections and Republicans nominated top tier candidates. Hoeven(ND) and Coats(IN)
AR-unpopular Democratic incumbent- top tier GOP challenger- Boozman(AR)
IL-Blago-D scandal,Giannoulias-D being tied in a scandal of his own- BroadwayBank and Kirk-R is a Republican that could win in IL but if TeaParties had their way- they would have choosed the world greatest deadbeat dad.
PA-Toomey-R vs Sestak-D race was a tie.
WI-Feingold-D ran a Coakley like campaign. Johnson-R had help from the Koch$$$uckers.
Republicans held onto
FL- Democratic party was split between Crist-I and Meek-D- If the South FL liberals supported Crist-I instead Meek-D, Cruz-TX would be giving yesterdays GOP SOTU response.
KY- Paul-R defeated Conway-D
LA- Vitter-R defeated Melancon-D
MO- Blunt-R defeated Carnahan-D
NH- Ayotte-R defeated Hodes-D
NC- Burr-R defeated Marshall-D
OH- Portman-R defeated Fisher-D

3. YUP ... And neither Christie or McDonnell are true Tea Party guys.

They are establishment GOP. And the Tea Party dopes thought they were Tea Party.

4. Lets just say that Christie,McDonnell,and Brown victories

had more to do with the Democratic nominees weaknesses than the establishment GOP/Tea Party strengh.

MA- Coakley-D was a mediocre candidate that ran a mediocre campaign.
NJ- Corzine-D was an unpopular incumbent.
VA- Deeds-D was unpopular with the Democratic base.

5. Those candidates were waek for sure, but the Tea Party jumped behind the three

establishment Republicans. And they did so with NO complaints.

The Tea Party was created to get sheep to vote establishment GOP ... but its back-firing. The far right wing nuts jobs actually thought they had a real say in GOP policy.

Dopes.

6. Every Tea Party candidate pulled a fast one on the voters

Not just Scott Brown.

In fact, the entire strategy was a massive bait-and-switch scam designed to trick voters into voting for those idiots. They all ran on jobs and the economy and once they were elected, they went out of their way to pass one repressive law after another--including busting unions, starting the war on women, etc.

7. The Paul's,Rubios,Blunts,Portman's,Toomeys,and Johnson's did a great job not making a fool out of

Themselves.
The Angles,The Bucks,The Akins,and The Mourdocks were failures.
Any moron could have realized that Castle is more electable in DE than O'Donnell.
The way to win is don't mention busting unions or starting war on women, gays, and non whites after the November Election. When get criticize- blame Liberal Media.
