Tea Party to Back Any GOP Nominee— Including Romney [according to self-appointed tea party "leader"]
Fox News ^ | June 4, 2011 | Lexi Stemple

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.

I’m with you!
After the Primary I will vote for the GOP candidate. We can work out the details after we win.
Obama is so dangerous for our future and our children’s future, and America’s future, he must be defeated in 2012.

Hey guys,

I’m thinking Fox News may have misrepresented this. They have an 18-second video clip and Amy doesn’t say the things she does as the article says.

I certainly hope they misrepresented it.

While I am no longer with the Tea Party Express, despite helping to launch it and working proudly with it for so long, this approach does not reflect my thinking.

I think the tea party movement’s job at this point is to fight to ensure we have a constitutional conservative as the nominee. The LAST thing we should be doing is pre-announcing approval for RINO’s. We cede the fight if we do this.

So let’s find out from Amy if she really said all this and feels this way. I can’t imagine she does - I’d be so disappointed.

And for the rest of us, regardless of what Amy said or feels, let’s stay focused on making sure that the person who takes on Obama is a true-blue, constitutionalist conservative who will take the fight to Obama, not back down, and not sell out their/our principles in this important fight!

Hiya Jim, I sent an email to Amy at TPE ... I'd repost it here but then you'd have to suspend me ... :)

To the Washington establishment, all conservatives are the enemy and must be prevented from taking power, and if that means pulling a Scozzafava in a three way race, they will do just that.

We are no longer willing to be herded into the stables by the GOP leadership, and the entire political establishment fears they are finally losing control over us. I don't see this ending well.

The Tea party is purely about economic issues and has certainly social conservatives libertarians and even some socially liberal.

To some here they seem to think that the Tea Party is the new Christian Coalition and it's not. If anything resembling the past it's comparable to the Ross Perot year where he made everything about government debt.

It looks like this is a in-your-face-we-don't-want-Palin missive.

That's exactly what it looks like! Not only that the TP, according to Amy, doesn't want Palin as a candidate, but that they don't want her as a king-maker either. This should not be allowed to stand or go unanswered.

I will NEVER EVER vote for Mitt Romney! I don’t care what anybody says. I’ll vote for a different party if I have to.

Here are a few reasons. His Romney care bill allows women to get abortion with a $50 co-pay. He promised the homosexuals that he’d not oppose same sex marriage in exchange for their support. He thinks global warming is real and is caused by mankind. And to be perfectly honest, I will NEVER vote for a Mormon period. That’s just the way it is.

I will not compromise my values and soul’s peace of mind by voting for that man.

Whoa! I just watched the video at the link you posted:

So, she’s (Ann Barnhardt) still alive. I remember seeing one of her previous videos. In that video she burned pages of the Koran then was bold enough to give her address out. Wow, the lady’s got courage. She’s armed too.

****Not me. This time I’m out! Won’t support no damned abortionist big government RINO!!****

My entire life I have seen nothing but capitulation and compromise by those who purport to stand for conservative values. If Sarah Palin and possibly Herman Cain or Allen West never capitulate to evil I will vote accordingly. NO MORE BACK STEPS!

Well, so Tea Party should debate...!
I thought it was a grassroot popular and conservative movement...

The GOP/RINOS might try to hijack the move....Who can speak for and represent the Tea Party ?

That fat clueless female pig does not speak for me.

I almost fell down when I heard that bitch (and there is no other name for a traitor such as she) play right into the hands of the GOP. Who appointed her! I sure as hell didn’t.

The Tea party needs to do some serious damage control because we will be hit time and time again with torpedoes such as her. They will do anything to discredit the Tea Party and if the Tea Party approves this traitor, I’ve certainly been fooled by them.

I expect to see IMMEDIATE response to this terrible placement (or self placement) of a spokesperson for the party.

Yeah, right, like that’s going to happen. Who elected this wench to speak for anybody, and when did they hold the election?

If I happen to need anybody else to lie to me and steal my money, I’ll get in touch with my ex-wife.

Romney my a$$.

I’m okay with a self-appointed “leader” of the Tea Party making nice with Romney voters to keep their support and votes in preparation for conservatives outvoting the RINO wing and far left crossover voters. The truth though is that the Tea Party is not going to follow a RINO leader - that’s why the Tea Party came into existence instead of just settling for yet another RINO - and a substantial number of conservatives will not vote for Romney (including me - I will waste my vote on a 3rd party candidate or write in Palin/DeMint instead of wasting my vote on Romney and an endorsement of socialism-lite).
