Tea party unloads on Romney

(DAILY CALLER) A national tea party organization is slamming Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney for being a “weak, Beltway elite candidate who failed to campaign forcefully on America’s founding principles — and lost.”

“What we got was a weak moderate candidate, hand-picked by the Beltway elites and country-club establishment wing of the Republican Party,” Tea Party Patriots National Coordinator Jenny Beth Martin said. “The presidential loss is unequivocally on them.”

The rebuke of Romney from Martin came just minutes after the networks called the presidential race for President Barack Obama. It’s the strongest criticism the group has leveled at Romney.
