Two of Americas most active national tea party organizations say former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has made no effort to win them over, despite his apparent need to attract more grassroots support.
As far as I am aware, weve had no contact with Romneys campaign, nor have any of his representatives reached out, Mark Meckler, co-founder and national coordinator of Tea Party Patriots, told The Daily Caller.

“Two of Americas most active national tea party organizations say former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has made no effort to win them over, despite his apparent need to attract more grassroots support. “
Mitt absolutely feels no need to try and win over the “little people”. After all, he has his coronation all lined up by the GOP establishment and RINOs.
He's a Massachusetts liberal. He's the political opposite of the TEA Party.
He knows if he tries, his nakedness will be exposed, and he's too arrogant a spirit to be confronted. He's deified himself like all the liberals before him. He thinks the TEA Party will bow down to him once he lures the independents into his snake oil cult.
I really do not like the man - personally as well as politically. He's just not likable, nor is he trustworthy.
You have to understand....Romney only knows the opulent lifestyle since “Daddy” fed him with a golden spoon as a child and “greased” the gears to make him successful in “business.”
He only needs the support of the GOP establishment lifers and RINOs, not the little people.
Go away you ruffian, unwashed “standard” American citizen! He doesn’t need the likes of you for its already been arranged that he will be the Republican candidate for President this time around. After all, it’s his turn.
What’s he got to sell ?
Purpose of FR and why we can never support Mitt Romney

Our purpose and goal on FR is to restore, defend, preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States and to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity!!
The goal of the domestic enemy (the left), i.e., the statist liberals, Marxists and progressives is just the opposite.
The goal of the establishment RINO is to gain control of political power, but not to otherwise rock the boat. The boat continues taking on water and listing sharper to port every time the left takes over, but the unprincipled RINOs do absolutely nothing to right her when they get a chance. In fact, the RINOs actually tack on plenty of their own unconstitutional baggage when they’re in power and so our ship of state today is in pretty bad shape.
RINO Romney is one of the worst. We can thank him for being the chief architect of ObamaCare, which if we cannot get overturned and repealed, will finally accomplish the left’s major objective of shredding the final remnants of our tattered constitution and ending our God-given Liberty forever (they think).
The liberals believe our constitution is a flawed document written in a different time for different circumstances by rich old racist white men and no longer applies to today’s circumstances. They’re now even trying to promote the idea that the constitution was never intended to limit or restrict the powers of government.
Like hell! That was and is its primary intent! And we who have sworn an oath to defend it, will defend it—from all enemies, foreign and domestic!
And that’s FR’s purpose and reason for being.
Romney may be a Republican, and that’s questionable, because he’s violated nearly every plank in the Republican party’s official pro-God, pro-Life, pro-Family, pro-Constitution, pro-Liberty platform, but he’s definitely no conservative. In fact his record is that of a statist liberal progressive. And he’s a total fraud to boot, with a nasty habit of lying—about everything. He’ll do and say anything if he thinks it will help him get elected. He’s a two-bit, unprincipled political whore.
Here’s Romney’s record on some of our primary issues of concern compared to Obama’s:
Issue: Obama Romney
Pro-Abortion check check
Gun-grabber check check
Gay rights check check
Gov forced healthcare check check
Tax payer funded abortion check check
Man-made global warming check check
Liberal judges check check
Liberal appointees check check
Ted Kennedy pal check check
Proven liar check check
Fraud check check
Liberal Progressive check check
Enemy of Reagan/Bush check check
Enemy of the tea party check check
Enemy of Liberty check check
Defender of the Constitution no no
Conservative no no
Works across the aisle no yes
Architect of ObamaCare no yes
Domestic Enemy check check
Useful idiot check check
All of the above plus much more is documented in the RomneyTruth files on FR. Click the RomneyTruthFile keyword at the top of the main page. Also watch the “New Romney Campaign Video” also linked at the top of the main page. Watch it all the way through. I even saw some clips I’d never seen before. Pretty damning stuff for anyone running for president as a Republican.
Let’s face it folks, the elite establishment RINO corps hates the tea party, hates conservatives, are afraid and even ashamed to have us identify ourselves as Republicans, feel we are dangerous extremist, racist, bigoted bible thumping, gun-toting, flag-waving neanderthals. The tea party is the best thing to happen for America since 1776 and our tea party candidates are the best thing for the GOP since Ronald Reagan, but what do the elite establishment RINOs do? They declare us the enemy! They went after Sarah Palin and some of our other tea party candidates with bared fangs and talons. Karl Rove and company were and continue to be as nasty and shameless on the attack as the nastiest lying liberal. Sarah Palin was the most exciting new face in GOP politics in a century and would have been a landslide 57 state victory over the corrupt, lying Marxist/progressive Obama. But the good ol’ boys, i.e., the elite establishment corrupt crony capitalist GOP bastards could have none of that. Instead, they’ve opted to go all in with a corrupt, lying statist/progressive of their own: Willard (the Rat) Romney.
Well, good luck getting the Rat elected without the committed grassroots, pro-life, pro-constitution conservatives or the majority of the tea party.
FR, for one, will not play that game. NO MORE RINOS!!
No Romney. NOT ON FR!! NOT ON MY WATCH!!
JR made this list and I agree with it.
That energy will not come from establishment Republicans, independents, moderates, or disaffected Democrats.
It can only come from Tea Partiers, and we've got The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again" blaring away at max volume.
In order to beat Obama, the Republican nominee will need a groundswell of support to counter $1 billion in negative ads.
Of course liberals and progressives have no minds of their own and all of the common sense persuasion possible can’t change them. Consequently the attack ads only play to the choir while informed conservatives know the score and also know the difference between truth and propaganda.
Think God the day of the internet (and FR) is here. It is the ONLY source of unrestricted information available and a tool that all can use to open the eyes of all who still have the ability to analyze, rationalize and think.
Money is not the only weapon in politics...it’s getting to know those around you and to have the pass on the truth.
It’s kinda like bees coming to the hive and doing the “bee dance” to show where the pot of honey is.
I think he’s using Cain to do that.
Before people get hysterical, I don’t think Cain has got any sort of pre-arranged deal with Romney. But Cain has never been seriously negative about Romney, is generally silent about him, and in fact even praised him highly in the last round of presidential primaries. So I don’t think Cain would be averse to the invitation to be Romney’s VP, and I think that’s what’s going to happen.
McCain only got the votes he did because he asked Palin to be his VP at the very last moment. Otherwise, his candidacy would probably have gotten a record low number of votes. I think Romney plans to select Cain, I don’t think Cain would object, and I think the GOP believes that once again it can rely on the VP to carry people who could not bring themselves to vote for the Presidential candidate.
I’m not sure it’s going to work this time, though.
If he reaches out to me, I will bite his hand.
