Libs Bucket of Unelectable Candidates List

A message from Tea Party Express’ own, Lloyd Marcus:

I hate to keep sounding like a broken record on this topic, but I must ask. Is Michele Bachmann the NEXT Sarah Palin? Several patriots have said, “I adore Sarah Palin. But, she has been so destroyed in the media, she would be a disaster as our republican presidential candidate”.

Well to all of you who subscribe to this opinion, have you seen the shock and awe campaign launched by the liberal media to destroy Bachmann, since officially throwing her hat into the presidential ring a few days ago?

If Bachmann becomes our nominee, suddenly the liberal media will portray Sarah Palin as the far more reasonable candidate rather than the ultra-conservative idiot nut case, Michele Bachmann.

Should we kick Bachmann to the curb adding her with Palin on the list of unelectable candidates on our side; considered too toxic, too tea party and too conservative to win?

OK, what about Herman Cain? Surely, the liberal media won’t attack a black candidate. Wrong! They have already begun making fun of the way Cain speaks. Jon Stewart spun a Cain joke to portray him as a idiot. http://bit.ly/iMKbEy

If Cain wins the republican nomination, come election day, the liberal media will have branded Cain as the dumbest black man on the planet.

Libs will laugh while parroting the same mantra. “Can you imagine the nerve of those republicans running a stupid self hating Uncle Tom n***** against a brilliant man like President Obama?” It is not over the top to suggest libs will call Cain the “n” word. As a black conservative, they call me it frequently.

Since Cain’s black skin will not exempt him from “liberal media destruction”, perhaps we should add Herman Cain to the unelectable list.

OK, who’s next? Huntsman? Romney? Here is what the left will say about these guys BEFORE either wins the republican nomination, “They are more palatable than those tea party extremists”.

Folks, my point is whoever wins the republican presidential nomination will be relentlessly and viciously targeted for destruction by the liberal media/Democratic party. Obama is the left’s Great Liberal Hope. Thus, they will attempt to politically terminate ANY contender.

The mindset that the tea party must select a liberal-lite milquetoast moderate to appease the liberal media and independents is absurd.

Back in the early 80′s, I was clueless about politics. A reporter looked at me as if I had two heads when I told her I loved Reagan. I later learned that I was suppose to hate Reagan because I was black. Liberals told the black community republicans were the KKK without the sheets.

I told the puzzled reporter referring to Reagan, “Every time I hear this man speak, I feel good about myself and my country”.

Patriots, let’s go for the gold and select an unapologetic conservative who will speak to ALL Americans without pandering to any group.

I believe there are enough decent Americans of all races who will see through the left’s slander campaign; hear and respond to truth, justice and the American way. Quoting Michele Bachmann, “Obama WILL be a one term president”.

A Case For Cain

A blog from the Tea Party Express’ own, Lloyd Marcus:

Upon the election of Obama, Al Sharpton was asked, “Will the election of a black president confirm that America is no longer a racist country?” In a nutshell, Sharpton replied “No”.

What Sharpton really meant was, “I ain’t lettin’ white America off the hook that easy. Promoting that blacks are eternal victims of a racist America has been an extremely profitable GREAT GIG over the years. I’m not gonna let a little thing like facts which prove otherwise, stop me from getting’ paid.”

Well, despite Sharpton, so-called “civil rights” race exploitation organizations and the liberal media, America has come a long ways baby in regards to “race relations”.

As a matter of fact, as a black man myself, we are actually “in vogue”. Some would say I should feel good about it, but I do not. I long for an America where politicians do what is best for ALL Americans and not pander to any perceived strong voting bloc. As for hiring practices, I believe the most qualified person should get the job…period.

Desperate patriots, wringing their hands in fear, have come to me saying, “Herman Cain MUST be our republican presidential nominee because only another black guy can defeat Obama”.

Wow, who would have ever thought it would come to this; gotta go with the black guy because “black is in”?

Similar to an old time traveling evangelist, Frantz Kebreau is a fine young extremely articulate black conservative, traveling the country passionately preaching his gospel of ending “Identity Politics”.

I could not agree more with Kebreau. I want the best candidate in the White House regardless of race or gender.

Having said that, I believe Herman Cain would be awesome for America.

As former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, Cain is heralded for his extraordinary work saving the failing company. He is also former president of the National Restaurant Association. Cain is obviously a gifted businessman, well armed with common sense solutions to bring America’s terminally ill economy back from the brink, courtesy of Obama-nomics.

President Obama views America’s economy as a tool to implement social justice, reward his friends, punish his enemies and control our lives. Dear Lord, we have got to vote this despicable man out in 2012.

President Cain would reverse Obama’s “liberal utopia fantasy land” anti-business policies.

But, the main reason I believe America needs Herman Cain is his character. Wow, why does that sound so corny?

Could cynicism be the after effect of a U.S. president receiving oral sex by an intern in the Oval Office; a politician using a government driver and vehicle to retrieve bribe money stashed in his freezer during hurricane Katrina and a politician awarded his own TV show after being exposed as a prostitute’s client number 9? Have these behaviors by politicians, to name only a few, dumbed down our expectations?

Remember how the liberal media and the Clinton administration covered for him saying any red blooded American male would have accepted a “Lewinsky” from a young woman if given the same opportunity as Bill Clinton?

Think about that folks, they indited your pastor, soccer coach, teacher, father, brother and etc.; in essence saying ALL men are characterless dogs.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying Cain or any other candidate is perfect. My point is unquestionably, the bar for standards of behavior in America has been lowered.

Herman Cain carries an air of class, honor and respectability of bygone days which strengthens my confidence that Herman Cain can be trusted to do what is best for America.

I know. I know. Cain got stuck on the question regarding “right of return” in the Arab/Israeli conflict during a TV interview. Thus, you question his knowledge of foreign policy.

Well once again, this is where Cain’s character is crucial.

Folks, no candidate knows everything about every issue. This is why presidents have “advisors”. For crying out loud, Obama thinks we have 57 states. Even more scary, Obama is familiar with “right of return” and still came out on the wrong side of the issue against Israel, our ally.

This is why America needs a character driven Commander and Chief like Herman Cain, who once briefed on an issue, will do the right thing.

Also, Cain has no problem or fear about “takin’ it to Obama” by challenging his socialist agenda and horrific record which I believe is extremely vital to defeat Obama in 2012.

Recently, I raved about Sarah Palin. While not formally endorsing anyone, I am simply commenting on candidates who I believe possess the “right stuff” for the job of restoring America.

A highly respected tea party activist and former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, I affectionately call Herman Cain Godfather of the Tea Party.

I like Cain so much, I wrote a jingle about him. Enjoy! http://bit.ly/liblUq

Operation: Saving Congressman Ryan

A message from Tea Party Express’ own, Lloyd Marcus:

What part of “the Paul Ryan Budget Proposal does not affect the Medicare of seniors 55 and older” do democrats and the liberal media not understand? Why would the democrats produce a blatantly lying video ad showing Congressman Ryan pushing granny over a cliff and why would the liberal media allow them to get away with it?

Are the democrats and their lib media buddies intellectually challenged and unable to grasp the concept of “does not”? No, they are co-conspirators in their despicable mission to manipulate, terrify and deceive seniors.

Their distortion of Ryan’s Medicare proposal is an example of the evil, democrat/liberal media tag team, juggernaut which challenges us in the 2012 election.

We can not allow these shameless liars to successfully brand Ryan’s heroic effort to “SAVE” Medicare as a republican plot to end Medicare and “kill” seniors. Former Obama adviser and far left radical, Van Jones, even compared Ryan’s budget to an attack by Al-Qaeda.

Such over the top fear tactics and lies work when not refuted.

Patriots, it is going to take a “all hands on deck” herculean effort on our part to spread the truth about Ryan’s plan, countering the Obama machine’s liberal media supported lies.

Use your creativity. Shoot and post videos. Gather patriots on street corners and in parks; all chanting the same mantra, “The dems lie! Ryan’s budget does not affect the Medicare of seniors 55 and older.”

The bazaar-o world aspect of the Medicare debate is while dems and liberal media attack Ryan, Obama is the one planning to cut 500 billion dollars from Medicare which is repealed in Ryan’s plan. Ryan’s proposal also repeals Obama’s death panels.

My 99 year old black grandmother adores Obama. Little does she know Obama’s health rationing panels would deem her a poor investment for certain medical procedures. I envision my grandmother’s application rubber stamped, “DENIED” and a federal clerk yelling, “Next!”

Everybody knows Medicare is on the road to bankruptcy. So, why would the democrats set out to destroy, portraying Paul Ryan as the devil’s advocate, the one guy making a sincere effort to save Medicare for future generations?

Allow me to offer a lesson in Democrat Compassion 101. It is NEVER about real compassion. It is ALWAYS about superior, “we know best how to run your life” power and control.

In a candid moment, Obama admitted that while it may take 10 years, his ultimate goal is to have all Americans on government run health care. Thus, Medicare failing would be a good thing, a major step toward Obama achieving his goal. It would open the door to Americans embracing government controlled health care which equals surrendering total control of our lives.

Government will decide who lives and who dies, what we eat, what time we go to bed and whether or not you can own a gun. Don’t laugh. Gun control was embedded in Hilliary Care.

Last November, we patriots made a promise to our winning tea party candidates. We said, “If you guys go to Washington and hold fast to the reasons we sent you there, WE WILL HAVE YOUR BACKS!”

Congressman Ryan believed us. This brilliant courageous young man stepped up to make “real change”. Ryan’s proposal takes on balancing the budget and stopping the bleeding of our economy caused by out of control entitlement and irresponsible spending.

Like a scene out of pro wrestling, the tag team of Mad Dog Lying Democrats and Suck Up Big Liberal Media began attacking Paul Ryan from all sides, ignoring all rules of fair play.

We MUST come to Ryan’s defense. Patriot writers, singer/songwriters, bloggers, talk show hosts and etc.; we all must do our part to get the word out. Time to go Paul Revere on the democrat’s and liberal media’s behinds. “The dems lie! Ryan’s budget does not affect the Medicare of seniors 55 and older.”

Though quite formidable, we beat the democrats and Obama’s media last November which proves we can beat them again come November 2012.

From Amy Kremer To You

A statement from Tea Party Express Chair, Amy Kremer:

On Saturday, I did an interview with Fox News about the tea party movement. As a result of that interview, my comments have been twisted and turned to sound as if I am selling out to the GOP and supporting one candidate. There is nothing farther from the truth. I am sorry for the confusion over my comments, but they have been now taken totally out of context.

First and foremost, as I stated in the interview, for full disclosure, I was/am neutral in the Presidential race and waiting to see which candidates are finally in. Then I will support the strongest viable tea party conservative in the race. No one has my support or the support of Tea Party Express at this time.

Last election cycle, Tea Party Express took on the establishment and worked hard to send true conservatives to Washington. We challenged the Republican party time and time again because we stood on principles and did not waiver. We were not willing to accept any RINO or Obama-lite. We were no longer going to accept what the Republican party was trying to shove down our throats, even supporting Doug Hoffman in the New York special against the liberal Republican. That will not change. No tea party group has taken on the Republican establishment more than we have, and that will not change. We are totally committed to tea party principles of smaller government, less taxes, an end to deficit spending and free markets. Over 99% of tea party organizational support to winning tea party candidates came from the Tea Party Express so no group did more to elect tea party candidates.

In the interview, I stated, “Well, I think that whoever is the Republican nominee, they are going to have to have the support of the tea party movement, the entire tea party movement.” This statement is reflective of my confidence in the strength of the tea party movement, which specifically means that I don’t think a candidate can win the nomination without our support, much less win the general election.

My point was that the “cream will rise to the top,” meaning that a true conservative will gain our support in the primaries and we will work together to defeat Obama. I believe in this movement and the people of this movement. I feel sure that once again, the tea party movement will work hard to send true conservatives to Washington, just like we did in 2010. I don’t believe a Republican can win without the strong support for the tea party movement. So when I say that we will support the nominee, I mean that we will support the nominee because he or she has won the nomination because of tea party support. I didn’t mean we will accept whatever is thrown our way.

In 2012, we have to defeat Barack Obama. This country will not survive another four years of his big government, socialist policies. Look at what has happened in only 2.5 years when Obama knows he has a reelection in 2012. Can you imagine another 4 years of him when there will be no reelection and has nothing to lose? He is the worst President that this country has ever had. We must remove him from the White House in 2012. We are now stuck with Kagan and Sotomayer. If Obama wins and appoints more justices, we will have no chance of turning back the march to socialism.

By the time that we have a nominee, I think the movement will have already spoken loud and clear and the nominee will have received the nomination with the support of the movement. If the nominee does not have the support of the movement, they cannot win the election. I have said that for months and months now and I firmly believe that.

Last election cycle, TPX was kicked and abused because we got involved in the primaries. We were told we needed to stay out of the primaries because engaging in campaign activity was the politically incorrect thing to do in the tea party movement. We jumped in anyway because we did not want to settle for the lesser of two evils in November. Tea Party Express will be doing the same after the presidential debate in September. We will be supporting the strongest and best constitutional conservative that emerges in the field.

While some may doubt the movement, I have full faith in the people across this country and know that we will have a significant impact in the primaries. We proved the strength and power of the movement in the primaries of 2010 and again in November of 2010. I think the same thing will happen again in the primaries of 2012 and again in November 2012.

The bottom line is this…you need to fight like a dog now in order to impact who the Republican nominee will be. The Tea Party Express national bus tour starts on August 20th and we have invited the candidates for president to give us their best shot on how to restore America to strength and prosperity. It culminates in the Tea Party presidential debate on September 12th in Tampa, Florida. I believe this process will start to unify the tea party around the strongest conservative candidates.

Tea Party Express has been the only tea party group that has put our money where our mouth is and supported true conservatives. I can promise you that will not change!

If you want to make a difference, then get involved in the primaries. That is the time to support the true conservative. What have you done to support your true conservative candidate today?

If you haven’t seen the entire interview, you can watch it here: http://video.foxnews.com/#/v/976326533001/tea-partys-role-in-2012/?playlist_id=87937
