TEA PARTY EXPRESS LAUNCHING FIFTH NATIONAL TOUR THIS SUMMER!

Coast-to-Coast Route Will Focus on Early Presidential Primary States

The Tea Party Express (www.TeaPartyExpress.org) announced today the launch of a national bus tour that will feature 29 tea party rallies across the country. This marks the fifth such tour by the group, whose rallies have been described as "a rolling 4th of July show" and feature conservative singers, speakers, candidates, and celebrities.

The Tea Party Express tour will launch on August 27th in Napa, CA, and head East to culminate in Tampa, FL in time for the Tea Party Presidential debate. The Tea Party debate, hosted by CNN and the Tea Party Express, will take place at the Florida State Fairgrounds located in Tampa, FL. Full details of the tour schedule will be released in the coming days.

"We're thrilled to be going back on the road doing what we love - meeting with the incredible Americans who give the tea party movement its unstoppable strength and energy, celebrating the great things about our country, and encouraging everyone to keep fighting for a better tomorrow." said Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer.
 
It was previously announced that Tea Party Express had teamed up with CNN to host the only national Tea Party debate. The Tea Party Express has built a network of more than 100 local tea party, 912 and conservative groups representing every state in the nation who have signed on to cosponsor the groundbreaking Tea Party Presidential Debate on September 12, 2011.

The latest Tea Party Express bus tour is expected to feature Presidential candidates, highlight core issues such as fiscal responsibility and constitutionally limited government, and generate interest and awareness for the upcoming Tea Party debate.

Wasn’t it Tea Party Express that recently endorsed or showed support for Mitt Romney?

Tea Party Express team up with CNN, what’s wrong with that picture. Could this be the new tea party that Van Jones is organising. Designed to confuse??

I went to the TPX rally in the Detroit area in 2009, and it was the real deal. Excellent turnout, great speakers, all conservative crowd, loved it!

So I guess we'll all stand around again, listen to a bunch of radio talk show host, tea party candidates and such talkin bout what were gonna do with this or how were gonna change that.

It's not going to make any difference. After the election, most (not all) politicians will snuggle on in to their new offices and it'll all be status quo....yet again.

The system is broken. We get a bunch of pontificates promising all manner of things, just to win the seat.

Republican or democrat, we still have rampant poverty, bailouts for the wealthy elite, wide open borders, troops scattered all over the world, massive debts and deficits, illegal immigration out the ying yang leading to crime, drugs, higher insurance rates and taxes.

Then put the big ol $hi7 sandwich called Obozo care on top.

Time for a change folks.

I thought the dems were at it again. Thanks, sorry for my skepticism, it's a relief to hear that it's legit. br /> June 23rd Washington Post had an article in the Post Political section where Van Jones was at some venue and proclaimed; “we'll start our own tea party,” for that's worth.

They probably would have if Perry had announced that he is running.

I saw you wishing for a tea party in DC to go to, well I think this on is going to have one in DC, not sure.

But, you should come to the one in Tampa, and to watch the debate live!

Now how stupid is that?

You ever been to an airport? Hotel? Doctor's office?

CNN is 24/7 at all of those venues.

Plus, CNN for all it's faults, does good coverage of news events that are happening live.

Fox always cuts out for their pretty boys to comment.

Good guess since I live in Waterford, but I never even heard about that one. The one I attended was in Harrison Township, but I can’t remember exactly when it was, and can’t find it on their website.

I guess it depends on what your definition of NO is.

Fox News’ Uma Pemmaraju: “Does that mean you would support a Romney campaign if he turns out to be the front runner?

Head of Tea Party Express, Amy Kremer: “If Romney is the nominee, I believe that – we want to defeat Barack Obama – so if Romney is the nominee, we would support him.”

She made the mistake of answering a hypothetical question.

And with the wrong answer.

Remember she also mentioned that a candidate with have to have tea party support.

True, it's pretty much a given that Romney would NEVER have support of the TPM.

But if a lightening bolt hit him and it fried all the RINO out of him, it's possible...

Show me a guy with a giant attitude but no ideas and I’ll show you a guy with no ideas.

This thread is about Tea Party Express, a bunch of imperfect people implementing their own imperfect ideas for getting our country back on track.

I’m sure the TPE folks are open to suggestions regarding how they might better achieve their goals.

And if someone knows of someone with a more effective approach than TPE then readers of this thread might be interested in that too.

But the world is full of grouses who sneer that everything sucks and that others need to wake up to this enlightenment.

Such empty self-indulgence helps no one.

Teaming with CNN is all I need to know about the sly Tea Party Express. This Kramer woman and her acolytes are attempting to hijack the Tea Party movement. If I get one more disingenuousness mailing from this group I’m going to personally return it a shove it up Kramer’s butt, with all due respect.

I implore all Tea Partiers to eshew this bunch of pretenders. They are divering (stealing) money that should go directly to real conservative candidates.

The TPX is not teaming with CNN.

They are using them as a venue to have a Presidential debate.

Which will be seen in every Airport in the United States. As well as by millions who will tune in ON PURPOSE to see this event.

It will be very well monitored.

The Tea Party Express is not trying to hijack the Tea Party Movement, they just happen to be a big part of it as history shows.

I’m going to personally return it a(nd) shove it up Kramer’s butt

Yea, nice threat being as it is a woman you are threatening. Quite brave.

Your threat is noted and being passed on to the Tea Party Express people who will probably pass it on to the proper authorities.

Yo syncro—lighten up will ya. Just a figure of speech. I would never jeapardize my freedom by physically attacking someone I don’t respect. In any case, I apologize for my crude remark. That said, it demonstrates my anger and frustration with the woman’s deception and arrogance.

So you think CNN will just roll over and present an unbiased debate? Do you believe in the tooth fairy, too?

As I’ve already said, the Tea Party Express is soliciting money under the guise of being an over arcing Tea Party entity. Genuine Tea Parties solicit for specific conservative candidates. Monies donated to the Tea Party Express are mostly designed to support the Tea Party Express. This is just the reverse of what genuine Tea Parties intend. We don’t want an entity like the GOP dictating who will run for president. The potential for mischief is too great.

The Tea Party Express is trying to set itself up as a king or queen maker. Not!
