Mmm, tasty infighting. Makes our job easier. Via Taegan-

One of the largest and most influential national Tea Party organizations will focus its 2012 campaign efforts on "nudging the grassroots toward coalescing behind whoever ends up being the most electable alternative" to Mitt Romney, according to the Huffington Post.

"Interviews with top officials at FreedomWorks, a Washington-based organizing hub for Tea Party activists around the country, revealed that much of their thinking about the 2012 election revolves around derailing the former Massachusetts governor... Brendan Steinhauser, who travels around the country meeting with activists as FreedomWorks' top liaison to the grassroots, said most people he talks to are 'definitely trying to stop Romney.'... So FreedomWorks plans to bring its influence to bear during the primary. They'll be violating former President Ronald Reagan's so-called Eleventh Commandment -- that Republicans should not attack other Republicans -- but Steinhauser said these are unusual circumstances."
