Skip to comments.Tea Party to Back Any GOP Nominee— Including Romney [according to self-appointed tea party "leader"]
Posted on 06/04/2011 10:25:45 PM PDT by LibFreeOrDie
The Tea Party will support whoever wins the GOP presidential nomination - - even if that person is former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. That's the affirmative word from Tea Party Express chair Amy Kremer.

The Tea Party don’t need no stinkin’ chairperson.
Bull!! Amy Kremer can KMA!! Just another self-appointed tea party leader.
To hell with Rino-mney!
Sold out before the primaries even begin
THen they have been co-opted by the GOP Elites.
Palin is going to win the nomination, so it’s a mute point.
Not in my house.
I don’t care if I have to drink gallons of Pepto-Bismol to vote for Romney. Heaven forbid he’s the nominee! But if it came down to the perfumed prince or Obama, I’d crawl to the polls to vote against Obama. Mitt literally disgusts me. He epitomizes EVERYTHING that’s wrong with the Republican Party establishment, BUT he’s not a Marxist and he doesn’t hate America.
Who the hell is Amy Kremer? Never heard of her. And probably never will again.
Something about this doesn’t smell right.
Hey, Amy. ObamaCare = RomneyCare. You’re a freaking RINO idiot!! You should be fired for this betrayal of tea party economic principles!! Where’s my can of RINO B-Gone!!
These self-appointed but unrepresentative TP leaders emerge on a regular basis, but you can’t box in the TEA Party that easily. It will be what it is, regardless of RINO infiltrators like her.
Statements don't come any more ludicrous and false than this.
What’d that cost him?
Making that kind of an announcement this far out, certainly does bolster the idea this isn’t a Republican movement. /s
IMO, it would have been far wiser to make that declaration in September/October of 2012.
The beauty of the Tea Party was that reasoned Democrats (not that there are that many) and Independents could join and not feel like it was betraying their old party. It also made it far easier for Blacks and other minority members to join, as it wouldn’t be as much as a slap in the face to their family members and friends.
The non-affiliation was a real plus IMO.
Pardon me, but this looks like the helpless ill thought out ding-dong statement the RNC or the Speaker of the House tosses out about every ten days.
Is that an indication that the Tea Party is going to become as helpless as the RNC? Heaven help us...
Who is this Large Marge to tell ME who and what I will support?
Buzz off Beyotch!
YOU do Not speak for anyone but yourself!
Well, I'm holding out until I hear from the Tea Party Express sofa.
I kinda like what another freeper said earlier this week.....if it’s Romney...won’t vote....why? Because if the country is going to go to HE**, then let it be under the DEMS, and faster. Never thought I’d agree with the statement....but, that’s where I am TODAY/right now.
Never fear. Mitt Romney’s going to save the planet from man-made global warming. As if RomneyvCare/ObamaCare is not bad enough, he now wants to drive the final stake into the heart of our economic freedom with the grand global warming hoax.
Amy Kremer is a RINO sellout!!
That she would claim she speaks for "The Tea Party" shows her ignorance and hubris...and that of the silly author to believe her.
That would be my take on it too. I don’t like Mitt, and he won’t get the nomination with my vote. At the end of the day election eve November 2012, I’d be prepared to vote for him without looking back.
Then I’ll spend four years kicking his rump every few days as he infuriates me constantly.
Man, another four years of that is next to the last thing this nation needs.
If Romney is the nominee, the GOP will lose.
No more liberals, no more moderates, no more rinos!
We need a red blooded conservative and we need him or her, NOW!
I was guilted into voting for McCain, and only did it because of Palin. It will NOT happen again. I will never, ever, ever vote for Romney.
Not me. This time I’m out! Won’t support no damned abortionist big government RINO!!
wrong. she doesn’t speak for me. though i’m registered at TPE (and other tea party sites) there is no way i’m going to vote for romney (or cristy for that matter). aside from the facts and logic. it would be morally wrong to vote for them given their stances.
these self important people, they just can’t help themselves, can they.
I don’t think the real tea party is a top down organization. And there is no infallible authority at the top of some structure.
No effing way, Amy. Think again.
I could have sworn that one of the reasons that the Tea Party movement got so much traction was because of Obamacare.
But I guess Romenycare is just fine.
Romney failed as Governor, left with 34% approval, and somehow is just naturally supposed to be the next President, the wording of this and Barbour, and others, proves that they know that republicans don’t like him or want him, yet they order it on us as though we are in the army, or in their employ.
They aren’t even waiting for the primary to tell us who the win is already assigned to, and they are willing to end the careers of candidates that get in his way.
There is only so much I can take.
And just who elected HER ?? I was under the impression that the Tea Party was a bottom-up movement, not a top-down.
And one thing for sure: NO RINOS!
It’s from the Tea Party Express. Thanks LibFreeOrDie.
If Amy Kremer is still with them after this, they can count me OUT!!
I’ll ping Lloyd Marcus. He’s a FReeper and was on the tours with Amy. Maybe he can tell us what’s going on.
Tea Party is not likely to do anything positive for Romney. The best he can hope for is that they don’t go third party. If the Republican Party doesn’t nominate a Palin or Cain they will be going 2012 alone. I would suggest that the Tea Party focus on congressional races if the Republicans lose their mind again.
This could get interesting, as they say. There’s more than one tea party.
No Romney, no how and no way.
I very nice FReeper brought this mistake to my attention. Thank you.....
Here she is on The Tea Party Expres website:
Andrea Mitchell, Andrea Mitchell, that bitter old sourpuss, referred to her as "grassroots," so naturally Kremer began reeling off Republican talking points. She also was involved in a nasty affair verging upon lawsuit, after bolting another tea party group for TPX.
Maybe she's just full of herself, but it doesn't feel right.
In 1992, I swore I wouldn’t vote for HW, but in the booth, as I was finishing up, the hole was right there in front of me, and I said this is stupid, and I punched it before folding the ballot. I have regretted that act for all of these years, but I won’t have a last minute change of mind for Romney, I won’t be voting for him, period, and I will be looking for avenues to replace the corrupted, within the GOP.
