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.

Looks like the fix is in or so they think.
Time to get back to those grass-roots folks! The TEA Party Folks ain’t sheeple. They are the ones educating themselves, family, and friends to just what those founding documents meant.
Time to start inviting these candidates to TEA.
She appears to be back peddling. I don’t trust her. I don’t believe her. She’s already shown her true RINO leanings.
Some people forget last week, much less last year.
We have to remind conservatives that she said this until they remember.
Because of the timing of this statement it is obvious that if she isn’t in the Romney camp she is still a flip flopping Rino.
She called me a little while ago in response to an email I sent her this morning. I too wonder/think she is back peddling. She claims, and maybe rightly so, so as to not compromise the scheduled Tea Party debate in September, that the TPX needs to not endorse any primary candidates prior to the debate due to the lsm having a potential field day with such. also of note is the truncated video at the Fox link (it’s Mittens ‘turn’) lacks the reason why no endorsements yet.
She did express how in the past 24 hours she has learned how much aversion and disdain there is for Romney.
Just to CMA, I have no relationship what so ever with Amy other than emailing back and forth before the first Tax Day Tea Party...
Sounds like the fix is already in. Is it a sham or shame?
Holding our nose and voting for (R) is partly what has created the mess we are in now. Voting for an ineffective candidate isn’t going to help matters. Amy Kremer go back to those ...republican handlers and tell them we need leaders, not any more blood sucking RINO’s along for the ride. They put up a weak candidate they will split the party themselves.
The risk of a third party is only a risk to a lame GOP nominee. If there were not serious issues with the GOP’s own house and candidates, the threat of a third party would be mute. I don’t want to be voting for the slow train to socialist h*ll.
Every TEA Party member needs to be asking themselves if they are choosing to follow or are they ready to get out there and rally a few republican campaign stops? Whoever is the nominee needs to know he has to answer to We the People, this business that we are going to be beholden to the Republican nominee is just nuts. We’ve been there done that!

When all all is said and done, My feelings are more in line with yours. Now thar you somewhat eplained it, I am not a turd partyer.
I did e-mail Kremer and have now two e-mails from her, one with request for my phone number so we can talk about the fact she was misunderstood in her interview comments.
The second e-mail then went on at length backpeddling and spinning her comment. She said she meant that the tea party would only vote for a conservative which the tea party would support, not just anyone thrown their way.
Did anyone else receive these e-mails?
I suspect she may have been hammered and why she sent the second e-mail.
No I will not be working my tail off for anyone who is not a conservative...Obama win or not. Done holding my nose...it isn’t going to happen that way this time around. Nope Nadda.
As the founder of the Mansfield North Central Ohio Tea Party Association, http://www.bloodofpatriots.org I can tell you with certitude...we will not support Romney or any other RINO.
Kremer doesn’t speak for us.
We are a RINO FREE zone and stand for PRINCIPLE OVER PARTY.
GOP flunkies like Kremer are ruining the Tea Party movement.
Speak up people...tell Kremer and others like her to shut their pieholes.
Neil using that kind of language about a woman ANY woman is just disgusting. Absolutely wrong and you should be ashamed.
With that said, Im going to swallow hard and assume you are just extremely passionate about what you believe in, and you misunderstood what Amy said.
Amys comments were reflective of our confidence in the strength of the tea party movement, in which we dont think a candidate can win the nomination without already having won over a majority of tea party support. Some candidate who doesnt stand up for tea party values just wont win because they dont have the footsoldiers, energy, and passion on their side. Thats what she meant by saying the cream will rise to the top. In this political environment, where the tea party is extremely engaged and active, only a candidate who wins their support will rise to the top.
Amy said that, Whoever is the Republican nominee is going to HAVE to have the support of the entire tea party movement. Just wanted to emphasize that for any candidate to win the Republican nomination, they will have to do so with the support of the tea party movement. The tea party is still an extremely massive and energetic force in American politics, and a candidate that doesnt support those ideals of fiscal conservatism isnt going to win the primary, let alone the general.
TPX has a reputation for taking on the RINO establishment EVERY TIME. Always has, always will.
IMO, TPX is back peddling furiously at this point. As for Amy and TPX, will NEVER trust them in the future. They've shown their RINO colors. Neil
REFUSE. RESIST. Do NOT Submit! ★FREEDOM!★
She’s in damage mode....I got the same e-mail. Backpeddling hard I’d say. Too bad the cat is out of the hat and it isn’t going back in.
That’s where I stand, also. I don’t think the rino’s care either. They are for the cause of the ‘rats - so they will be happy with either a rat or rino. They only fight against conservatives or let conservatives fight SOLO!
“You cannot concentrate only on fiscal issues. You cannot separate out life and liberty and expect America to remain a free country.”
Exactly right, Jim. Needs to be repeated over and over again. It is immoral to separate the social issues from the economic ones. It is also bad politics. Reagan never did it and he won three landslides (including 1988).
To win, the TEA Party needs to breathe from both its lungs, social and economic. The people who are suggesting the TEA Party ditch the social issues are either Dems or fellow travelers like Christie and Daniels and Romney. We need to ditch them, not the social issues.
I’ll hold my nose. I don’t need another 4 years of this.
"A political party cannot be all things to all people.
It must represent certain fundamental beliefs
which must not be compromised to political expediency
or simply to swell its numbers."
-- President Ronald Reagan
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldnt make any sense at all.""
-- President Ronald Reagan
Haven’t seen Mitt’s gold tooth in a while. Did Sarah punch it out in New Hampshire the other day?
Poor Mitt Romney! He missed the bus, again (beaten up by a girl)
Do you think it will be much different? When did a Rino make a difference with their cross the aisle mentality?
I won’t vote for Romney. The sneaky snake compromiser with abortion and same sex marriages. He created the precursor of Obamacare; a believer in fake man-made global warming, etc.
Obama and Mitt Romney, both are devils with hellish policies. If Amy Kremer and the Tea Party Express support Romney, they will suffer the same fate as the two devils.
