A Breath of New Life? Or the Kiss of Death?...

On the heels of a Texas win the Tea Party puffs up its chest.

abc NEWS... Cruz won the Texas Republican primary Tuesday night. In Texas, winning the Republican nomination is a virtual lock on a Senate election.

His victory is the latest in a string of Tea Party candidates to tap into anti-establishment frustration within the Republican Party and overcome the steep odds and deep pockets of more mainstream candidates.

Riding a wave of recent successes in the House and now also the Senate, Tea Party groups are eyeing the possible control of both chambers, a prospect, they say, would force Romney, were he to win the presidential election in November, "to move to the right."

"If we can elect a really conservative House and Senate that will force Romney to go along with our bold conservative agenda," Shell said. "He's going to have to really, really go to the right. He'll be working with guys in the House and Senate. He won't be able to get away with too many middle of the road policies, especially on things like the deficit."

Capitol Hill observers note that many newly elected and Tea Party-backed legislators want to remove the taint of Republican-back government spending during the Bush administration. So dedicated are they to the goals of cutting spending, shrinking the deficit and keeping government small, that they are motivated by ideology and not party loyalty.

"It's not going to be a Romney driven presidency," Norman Orenstein, a researcher at the conservative think tank AEI recently told ABC News. "It's going to be a Congressional, conservative, Republican driven presidency from Congress." {Read More}

Is it possible given the 2012 presidential election will most likely be decided by the independent vote that this may actually hurt Romney's chances of victory.

Just saying... What say you?

  1. It depends on which way the middle goes. Elections always turn on that. We know who the hardcores on either side are voting for.

    1. It's looking like four more years as a result of the ineptitude of the Romney campaign then. Would you agree?

  2. As a Texan, I think Cruz is just another Republican fraud. His wife is is a Goldman Sachs VP and was a CFR member until she resigned when he ran for the senate. Expect Cruz to be a solid statist neocon.

    1. Indeed it seems the Party of Lincoln is following in his footsteps in this the 21st century.
