But what Wall Street fails to realize, according to Potomac Research Group’s Greg Valliere, is the extent to which the Tea Party just doesn’t care. Valliere wrote to clients this morning:

“This is the Alamo, it’s Braveheart, battles to the death. These people are on a Mission from God,” Valliere says.
