I firmly believe that the Tea Party is alive and well and will be a major force in the 2012 Presidential and Congressional elections. All of us know that our very freedom is at stake and Obama and the liberal/progressive Democrats must be defeated for our Constitution to survive.
Excerpt: Conservatism: The White House sicced its meanest attack dogs, Media Matters and MSNBC, on Rush Limbaugh. But they couldn’t knock him off the air. Their advertising boycott has failed.

“Stations are standing by him,” the Post reported, and “advertisers are trickling back to his program.”
Turns out the ad losses were far fewer than liberal Media Matters claimed in a running tally on its website.
In fact, virtually all of Limbaugh’s long-term sponsors stuck with the show, in spite of relentless brow-beating by both Media Matters and MSNBC, which also works closely with the White House.
