Doesn't it seem like the Tea Party has been substantially deflated since Obama's Heath Care bill passed?

They lost a lot of media coverage after that.

    On the contrary, they are increasing in numbers. Just because some media outlets won't cover their events does not mean they are not happening. The Tea Party is gaining significant traction despite their detractors.

    Media coverage has nothing to do with reality. In polls now nearly a fourth of Americans identify themselves as members of the tea party movement, that is up nearly %10 since Obamcare passed. Pretending something isn't there doesn't make it go away.

  • Not really I think the left stream media is still whaling over them and won't stop. Tea party people seem not to be worried about it they just keep on doing what they do.

    When they realized they lost big time, a lot of empty air zipped out of them. Their sympathizers will have a hard time getting any momentum for the next years. It will be an uphills battle.

    They are still there.

    They are even more resolved because of the outrageous methods used to ram this law down their throats.

    Just because the lapdog media isn't covering them does not mean they will forget.

    It does. The number of protesters were less this year than when you compare it to last year.
