LOCAL TEA PARTY GROUPS TO CO-SPONSOR TEA PARTY PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE, HOSTED BY CNN AND THE TEA PARTY EXPRESS
The Tea Party Express (www.TeaPartyExpress.org) released details today on the 120+ local tea party groups that will co-sponsor the upcoming Tea Party Presidential Debate. Tea party groups may become a co-sponsor at no cost, giving them access to event tickets, national recognition, and input content of the debate.
 
The historic Tea Party Presidential Debate is the first and only scheduled debate focusing exclusively on tea party issues, with candidates answering questions that come directly from activists within the broad grassroots movement.
 
Chairman Amy Kremer said, “This groundbreaking debate is a powerful demonstration of the strength and influence of the tea party movement. The candidates will be on stage answering questions directly from tea partiers, and vying for the full support of the movement. With the entire tea party movement engaged in this debate, the right candidate will emerge with strong tea party support and the momentum to win the Republican nomination.”
 
Hosted by CNN and Tea Party Express, the debate will be broadcast live from Tampa, FL on September 12th, a date that was chosen for its great significance in the modern tea party movement. More details can be found at: http://www.teapartyexpress.org/teaparty-debate

Thanks for all of the work you do, Syncro.

There is one question I have about this debate. You text above says:

The historic Tea Party Presidential Debate is the first and only scheduled debate focusing exclusively on tea party issues...

Is there some text you can post to this thread that defines "tea party issues" as TPX uses the term?

I mean, we all have an idea of what the "tea party issues" are and I'm sure there is substantial agreement among us all (on what the issues are) but I'd find it helpful in understanding this debate event to know what guidance was being used to generate and select the topics and questions.

Thanks.

Here is the Website for the debate:

The Tea Party Debate is a truly historic, first-of-its-kind event that will bring conservative candidates for President together to discuss tea party principles, and determine which candidate has the best solutions to lead the United States of America and her people into greater freedom and prosperity.

The debate demonstrates that the tea party, which began as a small grassroots movement, has grown tremendously in size and influence to become a powerful force in American politics.

The Tea Party Debate will focus only on the core principles and values of the tea party movement: limited government, free markets, and fiscal responsibility.

WHEN: September 12, 2011

WHERE: Tampa, Florida

This date was chosen because it is such a significant day in the history of the tea party movement: the anniversary of the massive “March on D.C.” which demonstrated the power and size of the tea party.

Mission

Our expectation is that a strong front runner will emerge who clearly supports the principles and values of the tea party movement and who is the strongest constitutional conservative. We believe that the groups around the country will make the decision to support that strong tea party candidate and will work to take back the White House from President Obama.

Partners

The Tea Party Debate has tremendous significance because it is powered by engaged tea party activists. The Tea Party Debate will be coordinated by Tea Party Express and CNN, with participation and involvement from co-host local tea party groups in every state across the country. The questions asked of the candidates will all come from the tea party groups and their members – to ensure the debate is about the issues that matter most to the tea party movement.

We want your local tea party to be a part of this historic event! For information about becoming a Tea Party debate co-sponsor, please send an e-mail to Info@TeaPartyExpress.org

Go to the website everyone, there is a lot more info there, plus it's interactive.

I think having it on CNN is a great idea and a real coup so long as it is tea party conservatives selecting the topics and the questions and there is no commie "moderator" mucking things up.

I certainly agree, although I was a little curious about how the selection of CNN came about.

Wow!! One week after Governor Palin’s hat-toss. Perfect.

(actually, I have no inside info, it’s just that I read TEA leaves and if you go back to 2008, you will see that like a number of others at FR, I was one of those who named Palin as the VP pick well before the Press figured it out. Hint: FlightAware was a wonderful tool!)

Tea party people from all across the nation (check out the co-sponsor lists) will have input into the questions and will actually be able to ask their questions directly to the candidates in the debate.

As far as I can tell, the TPX isn't limiting what are "tea party issues."

Yes, we all are familiar with what they are.

I think the topics and questions will be what we would expect.

The TPX has always been very attentive to what the millions of tea party people are concerned with.

No it wasn't because of the TV’s in airports.

You seemed to question “why cnn” and there is one reason.

I have never been in an airport where the TV’s are not tuned to cnn.

So during the debate, thousands of TVs in airports will be tuned into the debate and the people will watch it just because it is on.

Plus cnn seems to be the cable news channel of choice of most hotels, so many will see it there too.

It's possible that Obama may have been a player in the choice.

Not choosing cnn, but nixing it being on Fox Cable News.

If you followed previous TPX tours, you would have noticed that they got a lot of coverage from Fox News, even with Griff Jenkins being embedded with the TPX on one of the tours.

The chatter is that this twisted up Obama’s panties and he had a “beer summit” with the Fox people, complaining that they should only cover the TPX when it is actually hard news.

Seems only fair being as cnn, msnbc, abc, nbc, cbs etc etc are branches of the dnc. Can't have a news station being in the tank for the tea party, now can we? Double standard and typical of leftists.?

So we may have Obama to thanks for the cnn choice. Bear in mind my statements are somewhat speculative, but probably pretty accurate.

Personally I think cnn is a better venue than Fox, being pretty much the generic cable news channel that it is.

It will get a better cross section of viewers than Fox imo.

Plus can you imagine Hannity or O’Reilly or Combes or Gretta being the host from the news channel side?

Scary, ain't it?

LOL

Looking forward to hearing about where the debate will be held and the time. Guessing the Tampa Convention Center and an evening debate, but have not heard as yet.

Also wonder how tickets will be offered through various TP Movement grassroots groups sponsoring, and how many tickets will be available for each group.

Looking forward to knowing all the names of the candidates who will be on the stage! :)

As "just the manager of the ping list," I can't answer your question. But I do recall there was a bunch of discussion about this when this debate was first unveiled earlier this year.

I'd suggest searching for older threads. You could also FReepmail syncro.

On the previous TPX national bus tours, they used cnn to their advantage many times.

The media is good at manipulating Conservatives, but they can be manipulated right back.

Nope....just heard there will be four moderators; each of them taking 25% of the time and a fifth moderator to handle the "wrap-up" or summary session....

They are:
1. Cattyyy Couric,
2. Keith Olberman,
3. little chrissy mathews,
4. juan williams, and
5. either John Stewart or Al "freekin'" Franken (not been decided yet).

Should be a great show...what??

Didn't mean to at all!

No conservative in their right mind would ever subject themselves to a goup like that.

One wonders why there are no conservative "groups".

For example....suppose we're going to have a debate with the dem/lib/prog/pop candidates (ok, I know the stain is the only candidate, but humor me for a bit).

Now...we have to pick four ultra conservative "moderators" to run the debate so to speak, and one to do the summary.

So....who would they be??
1. Ann Coulter,
2. Vicki McKenna,
3. Chris Wallace,
4. Michelle Malkin, and
5. Rush Limbaugh to summarize.

Quite a panel, that, yes??

Would it not be an incredible treat to see the stain sitting in front of that group and being forced to answer questions without his trusty teleprompter???

Also, he'd not be allowed to leave the room until the end of the "debate"....no more of this running off and hiding!

Certainly Sarah needs to be at this one? I would think she would want to be? I would hope!

BTW I support her if she announces in Oct 2012 (yes I know that would be difficult, to say the least LOL) just saying

Now perhaps this might move up her announcement? I guess the day after labor day would still be fine.

I hope Perry is not in the Fox August debate, this way the MSM will not just have Gov Palin to bash

Pains me to say this, but same thing can now be said of Fox News. Show me a panel of Tea Party friendly folks on Fox? NOT FNS, NOT Special Report,Not The Factor, not really any day time show. Hannitty is the best they have, other than that you have to turn to a couple on Fox Business.

The new show at 5 PM has Eric Bolans (sp) He likes Sarah, not sure about the Red Eye host have not really caught much that he has said.

Former Bush WH Press girl..name slips my mind, she is pretty moderate.

Then you have Andrea Conteras (something like that) She is not a big supporter of Palin, I have emailed her, in fact she is OK with Romney.She likes MB better than Palin (not a crime I suppose?)

So Fox really not that much different than CNN///ALMOST

First I heard of the Fox Iowa debate.

It looks like there will be two of them.

FOX NEWS AND WASHINGTON EXAMINER TO PRESENT IOWA REPUBLICAN PARTY PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE ON AUGUST 11

FOX News and The Washington Examiner, in conjunction with the Iowa Republican Party, will present the first Iowa presidential debate on August 11th. The debate will take place at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa and will set the stage for the Iowa Republican Party Ames Straw Poll on August 13th.

In making the announcement, FOX News Senior Vice President of News Michael Clemente said, “FOX News is proud to partner with The Washington Examiner and the Iowa GOP to kick off the 2012 election season and provide viewers the most thorough coverage of this important debate.”

Stephen G. Smith, editor of The Washington Examiner, added, “This is shaping up as a pivotal race, and we’re proud to be part of the conversation as the Republicans choose their candidate

Funny that with this debate, it is the "kick off the 2012 election season."

Heck, Mitt and a bunch of others have been seasoned in this election season for months, even to the extent of years with Romney.

He started campaigning for 2012 when he dropped out in '08.

I think she will be in this TPX/cnn debate.

Also watch the schedule and keep up with updates to the TPX Bus Tour which will have 29 tea parties across the country culminating in the Grate Debate!

Here is the thread with the schedule:

She was at three of the tea parties on the last TPX tour and I imagine she will hit some this time too. Which may have something to do with her not declaring yet, I think if she is a candidate it would be more difficult for her to be at tea parties associated with this tour without getting a bunch of flack.

Not that it would matter...she is ALWAYS over the target, so she will always get flack.

I’m sure that CNN approached them and not the other way around. CNN is really trying to show they have changed but the damage is deep.
