    What's up with all those Tea Party Darlings, Rick Scott, Marco Rubio and Allen West?

    Seems none of them wish to continue to associate with the association that got them elected.

    Nor do any of the current Republican presidential candidates.

    Tea party allies Gov. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), Attorney General Pam Bondi (R-Fla.) and the leading Republican candidates for president have all declined invitations to the 2011 Florida Tea Party Convention.

    "Michele Bachmann and Marco Rubio used to be tea party favorites," Mack said. "The tea parties got them elected and now they're not here at the Florida state tea party rally."

    While Rubio did not attend the event in person, he recorded a video that that was screened for attendees at a Friday night banquet.

    None of the other absent candidates or lawmakers have thus far recorded a message for the convention, which ends Sunday afternoon.

    Maybe now that they've gotten where they want to be they don't want anyone to remember how they got there?

    In other words
