I wrote a letter last night to Amy of the Tea Party Express

I basically said what I did in my previous post- except I cleaned up my language.
This is her response:


I am sorry for the confusion over my comments, which have been now taken
totally out of context.

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.

My point was in the interview that the "cream will rise to the top," meaning
that a true conservative will gain our support and we will work 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 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
it was the politically incorrect thing to do. We jumped in anyway and will
be doing the same after the debate in September. We will be supporting the
best constitutional conservative in the field.

The bottom line is 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.

I hope that I have answered your questions and addressed your concerns If
you have any other questions, please let me know. You can also call me if
you would like. My number is listed below. If you would like to send me
your number, I would be happy to call you as well.

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Thanks again for your email. Have a good night!

Amy Kremer
