If Tea Party activists are unhappy with President Barack Obama, it would have been a lot worse under President John McCain, Tom Tancredo declared Thursday in opening remarks at the convention in Nashville, Tenn.

“Thank God John McCain lost the election,” the former GOP congressman from Colorado and 2008 presidential candidate said to cheers and applause from the 600 grassroots activists in attendance.

I don’t know about worse but, it wouldn’t of been better by any means.

They’re both progressives and they are the enemy to this country, our Constitution and our way of life.

In Tancredo’s view, the Tea Party movement would never have been sparked under a McCain administration because Republican Party leaders and activists would have been muffled from criticizing their president

Republican Party leaders didn't create the Tea Party movement.

There was tacit support for McCain, but everyone knows that he would not have tried to advance as Leftist an agenda as Barry has in 1 year.

And the President is the president of the whole US, not just "the Republicans". Obama is the president of the whole country.

Republicans were critical of McCain in the campaign and still are (and do not find common ground with his daughter who claims to be a Republican).

Tom Tancredo is right on. He needs to go Arizona and campaign against McCain.

Tom Tancredo to Tea Partiers: ‘Thank God John McCain Lost’

Ummmm..., get on the "clue train" here... it's not because of McCain that we have the Tea Party -- it's because of Obama...

And we've got "Obama" because McCain and Palin lost....

That's the "clue" to what happened and why we've got the Tea Party... LOL...

Obama is on record seeing the Constitution as an “obstacle” to implementing the redistribution policies he wants to establish. He did remark that he sees opportunity to push it through in the Supreme Court (and it looks like he will get 2 Justice appointments).

Every generation seems to need a prominent reminder that liberalism is a bad idea. Obama is the poster child — he may very well make the biggest contribution to the conservative movement since Jimmy Carter.

Quite frankly, I think that’s complete idiocy. McCain would have been a far better president than Obama. Yes, some good things will come of the Obama presidency, but he will do, has already done, enormous damage to our country, which he planned to do all along. Tancredo has lost all respect I’ve ever had for him.

Rush was saying just today, “They (he called them Socialists) want to destroy this country and then leave”.

Time for an intervention.

Would have been worse eh?

We wouldn’t have gotten:

Souter -> Sotomeyor

And we might have looked forward to:

Ginsberg -> ?

Stevens -> ?

Right now, I don’t.

On the same days Scott Brown campaigns for McCain.
