Skip to comments.Tea Party to Back Any GOP Nominee — Including Romney
Posted on 06/05/2011 3:07:31 PM PDT by bimboeruption
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.
Kremer told Fox News on Saturday, "whoever the Republican nominee is will have to have the support of the Tea Party movement, the entire Tea Party movement."
Kremer went on to say the Tea Party is "completely neutral," adding that it "just wants to see the cream rise to the top... If Romney is the nominee I believe that we want to defeat Barack Obama."
Her confidence comes while some Tea Partiers, including some at FreedomWorks, a leading voice in the Tea Party movement, set their sights on stopping a Romney nomination.
Kremer also wants to put to rest the idea the Tea Party would support a third party candidate, insisting the Tea Party can work from within the democratic and republican parties.
"There is no way that we are going to support a third party candidate. It would split the vote and it would guarantee reelection for Obama, and we need to crush Obama we have to get him out of the White House," says Kremer.
Kremer also believes the Tea Party movement will have a "massive impact just as we did in 2010."
In fact, she feels the Tea Party and its elected representatives are responsible for the failure of a clean debt ceiling vote in congress this week.
"We are still having an impact here in Washington. I really believe that if it weren't for the Tea Party movement they would already raised the debt ceiling and the spending would continue to be out of control... The democratic party was completely split.
If it wasn't for this movement, I don't think you would...

Voting for the least bad candidate?
Isn’t this is where we came in?
That is exactly how we ended up with wave after wave of RINOs weasleing their way into high level office.
This woman has a lot of nerve presuming to speak fo rthe entire TEA party. Sarah Palin, who probably could speak for the TEA party or a huge chunk of it, is always careful not to do this. She always refers to an Army of Patriotic Davids rather than a leader on a White Horse.
This lady, by piping up and arrogating to herself such authority, exposes herself as antithetical to what the TEA party stands for. It is a “bottom/up” movement not “top/ down” and certainly not “top down”, if the “top” is this Amy what’s her name!@#%.
“...Amy Kremer does NOT speak for me!...”
NOBODY SPEAKS FOR ME!
I’m not voting for Mitt or any other RINO.
Amy Kremer is full of ...(RHYMES WITH MITT).
Republicans need to pick a conservative to challenge Obama.
No more liberals, no more moderates, no more rinos!
That liberal will never get my vote.
I’m going to fight like hell to avoid having a horribly disappointing experience like voting for Romney. I would hate that as much or more than I hated voting for McCain. Part of the reason I would hate such a thing is that we do have the Tea Party now, and we should never again have to vote for a Romney type candidate.
Give the morbidly obese presumptuous beeyeetch the keys to a donut factory... we would never have to hear her self serving crappola ever again...
“Nor for me! Who the heck is this chick?”
Kremer was one of the founders of that other scam group, the Tea Party Patriots.

Spoken like someone who thinks they are the entire TP movement.
Piss off, lady. I have no idea who you are, nor do I care. I don't vote for warmers.
Ya gotta love these big party groupies and insiders....
Party before country.
Compromise over conservatism....here is comes again.
Party over principle.
Gezzz...Where have I heard all this before??
"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
I will not hold my nose and vote for anyone again.
I can go with most any Conservative. I have no one blocked out except phony Conservatives who mandate insurance, is not anti-abortion, and believes in Global warming.
That’s you Mittens.
Amy needs to keep her mouth shut, she does not speak for the Tea Party.
By voting that way you make yourself irrelevant to the election. There are roughly equal numbers on each side who vote for the party no mater who they nominate. Neither party has to pay any attention to these groups.
The voters they have to woo are the ones who will stay home or vote third party if their party nominates an unacceptable person. Saying you will vote for the nominee even if he is a RINO tells the party you can crap all over me but Ill take it and reward you for it.
Unfortunately, we've been seeing the results of this for years now
Whoever this POS is, she definitely doesn’t know what the hell she is talking about.
The Tea Party Has no leader or spokesman who represents us.
We Tea Party Patriots will vote for who ever we want based on individual preference, NOT on any recommendation from some nobody.
Tea Party is Freedom!
