Dick Armey wants Tancredo out of the Tea Party Tent.
Dick Armey as many RINO republicans are willing to turn a blind eye to illegal immigration and open borders.

Dick, you do not know what the Tea Party is about. You’ve just overstepped your bounds. Maybe you should go back to lobbying.
Both parties seem intent to pass amnesty and Real ID (which is going to be given to these newly made Americans of course)
“Dick, you do not know what the Tea Party is about. Youve just overstepped your bounds. Maybe you should go back to lobbying.”
Dick...no kidding...this is why they don’t call him Richard.
I was about to say - Hey Dick! It’s not YOUR call to make - it’s OURS!
They use the same tactics as their Dem counterparts: Say it enough times, and with conviction, and it becomes fact.
Go away Dick. You are a putz.
It just has much more to do with their historically obstinate refusal to listen to their base than any leadership skills they may possess.
Dollars to donuts his wife must be vying for an RNC job.
“Who died and made Armey king? “
He’s been trying to get his snout under the tent since July 4th...
Isn't it great not to have a leader? I'm thankful to Dick for helping to organize 912.
Just don't start telling us what to do, Dick.
I had a lot of respect for him for his speech in Washington on 9-12...”
Yep...but he is really leaning on the Tea Party to become a figurehead and we just don’t need one, IMO...
Me too. I like Tom Tancredo. Dick can stuff it. I’m getting fed up with Republicans who think the Tea Party is about them. Wise up RINOs, we’re fed up with you too. No MORE RINOs.
Im a big tent republican.
Heres an analogy to work with. Take a small box and fill it with some rocks. Then add some rice, filling it to the top. Now take all the same stuff, but in a different order. Put in the rice first, then add the rocks. What youll find is that if you put in the big stuff first, the small stuff will fit around it. But if you put in the small stuff first, the big stuff wont have room. The republican tent is the box. The Big issues are the socon issues, to be put in first. The little issues are things that can be accommodated around the bigger stuff. A candidate who tries to focus on the smaller issues first and leave out the bigger issues has no way of getting all of us into the tent. He splits the party. The candidate who gets the big stuff right and as much of the little stuff that will fit, he can fit more into the tent. Were often amazed at how much rice can keep fitting in. Rudy Giuliani flunks some of the big issues, and on some of the little issues it looks to me like anyone elses rice would do just as well. All that remains for us to agree on is which are the bedrock principles and which are not. Why would there be so much invective aimed at rudy from the right? Because there are some bedrock principles that he is leaving out. Bad move. I see rudybot postings all the time saying that they would vote for Hunter, and I see socon postings that say they would not vote for rudy. Thats a BIG indicator of a few bedrock principles that are being left outside the tent in order to let in some rice.
