Tea Party Express Offers Support To Michele Bachmann

Tea Party Express Offers Support To Michele Bachmann

The Sacramento, Calif.-based Tea Party Express offered support for Michele Bachmann in the 2012 Republican Presidential primary race, but did not officially endorse the candidate.

According to Roll Call, the California-based Tea Party Express said in a statement that, while it has not endorsed any candidate, it remains committed to backing the conservative candidate best positioned to beat President Barrack Obama in 2012. The group said it wants a competitive primary, beginning with the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 3 and in all of the States that follow, to jump-start that process.

“While the Tea Party Express has not endorsed a presidential candidate at this time, Michele Bachmann garners strong Tea Party support because of her work and commitment to restoring fiscal responsibility to Washington, D.C.,” Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer said. “Let’s let the voters in Iowa choose the leading candidates to go forward from the many excellent candidates we have.”

While Bachmann’s campaign claimed last week to be in a “statistical dead-heat” with Iowa frontrunner Ron Paul (19 percent), she actually followed Mitt Romney (18 percent) and Newt Gingrich (16 percent) with only 15 percent voter support, according to The Des Moines Register.

    Unfortunatly if Bachmann is the best the GOP has they are going to need 2016 to come around quickly. None of the GOP field impresses me or excites me. Like the kids arguing on the playground. I like Ron Paul but he has some serious baggage to overcome.

  • Pat

    What is it that you don’t like about Michelle Bachman? Is it her belief in smaller government? Her belief in fiscal responsibility? Her relentless pursuit to do away with Obamacare? Her belief in lower taxes and personal responsibility? I don’t think that the field is weak. Any 1 of them would do a better job running our country then Obama, and I feel much more comfortable with Michelle Bachman covering my back than any other candidate on the stage.

    • Sirian

      I agree whole heartedly Pat!

    • eddie47d

      Michelle believes in continued wars and military expansionism hardly a recipe for fiscal responsibility. On that issue she would be a clone of Obama. She’s also a bigger supporter of the Patriot Act and NDAA than Obama.She may talk tough on the Constitution but is rather weak on the civil liberties we have lost.

      • Jibbs

        47d, For once we agree!
        Thank you !

        • USAF VET

          Looks like both of you don’t know what you are talking about. Of Course Eddie would make that comment just to show us his liberal ignorance. No, people like Eddie and Jibbs just show their ignorance by saying things like that because they want to continue to have a dictator in the White House instead of a Conservateve who will cut the spending, limit Government, and abide by the Constitution. They are also probably among those that wouldn’t vote for a woman because the don’t think a woman should be president.

          Of course now they will bring up Hillarious Hillary Clinton. Well, she not even qualified for the job she has now, much less qualified to be President of the United States because she is just like Obumski, she wants to be Queen, and she’s worse than her adulturous husband whos so called surplus was just a projected surplus which never actually manerialized.

      • s c

        No need for you to be cocky, bubba e. It will take a while before you understand and then ADMIT that not all of our armed are “OUT” of Iraq. HOW can anyone act like an adult when it’s so OBVIOUS that you have LOW standards for your fricking icons, bubba e. What your W H god says rarely equals what he MEANS. DUH!

    • jimmy the greek

      @ pat she is what i call a crazy christian She well take her marching orders from the zionist in israel . FYI : crazy christians are the born again crazies i my self am Eastern Orthodox .

      • Norman F.

        Show some respect for other views, Jimmy. You capitalize you beliefs but put others with small letters. I am a Christian but I have no problems with the Eastern Orthodox people continuing to hold their beliefs. Or any other one for that matter. We all have brains and (sometimes) clear minds to make our decisions about life and religious beliefs. Besides you call on the same God that I do.

        Now as for Michelle Bachmann, you should show some respect for her accomplishments in you would want me to show respect for yours. She has been a wife and mother of children, some birthed and some adopted; run a successful business; and been a Congresswoman. Now she is doing what every other person in this country has a right to do – run for President. How about you, Jimmy? Do you have enough people who respect you enough to financially help you get on the ballot? I hope so.

    • Donnie Ayers

      “Michele is the best candidate” for the America that use to be & if you want “That America” back, a vote for her would be the best thing
      anyone can do for this country, because she trust in the Lord & is not afraid to say so, & her faith will carry her through….The LORD
      Be With YOU…& “who” can be against YOU ! AMEN !!!

    • TML

      What is it that you don’t like about Michelle Bachman?

      #1 reason… she supports and voted to extend the Patriot Act… in which such action conflicts with her supposed belief in smaller government.

      #2 reason… she advocates, through her religious beliefs, a continuous war on “terror” (Muslims/Islam)… which conflicts with her supposed belief in fiscal responsibility as well as smaller government.

      #3 reason… through her religious beliefs, she is against gays and lesbians being able to get married… which undermines personal freedom and responsibility, as well as religious freedom.

      Nothing more than a woman that says one thing and does another.

      • Icepick

        You forgot to mention that she’s a kook. And then there’s her husband (who’s just dying to become the First Lady. Wingnuts, both of them. We need common sense in this country, not escapees from the insane asylum running the show.

        • http://naver Samurai

          That’s what we have now, isn’t it? Neeeeed to be making that popping sound. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      • http://naver Samurai

        Reason #3 don’t mean a darn thing. Gays are not to get married for a marriage is one man and one woman, period. No exceptions! Neeeeed to be making that popping sound TML, libtard! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      “Features and benefits”

      See thu windows and rotating tires

      Like “Pro Life” ~ who’s going to oppose the notion?

      Ms Bachmann is not really saying anything that someone in their right mind could oppose.

      She needs to work on her message to break out. I don’t see her doing that.

    • TIME

      She is a NWO PUPPET. She has zero value. She is a double talker, aka -speaks out of both sides of her mouth and changes her opinions like a diper on new born baby.

      Perhaps you should review what she really is all about.
      Also please – Keep in mind she feels that the American people are enemy’s.
      She voted for the NDA Act a few weeks back, Also the Patriot Act, as well even the Reupping of the US Inc act.
      That should spell it out to anyone, even if they are as blind as a bat.

  • Gerd

    Absolutely correct! Never any doubt which side she is on.

    • bob wire

      right! she is on Michele Bachmann side!

      she lost campaign leadership member to ron paul tonite.

      bet that pissed her off, it would me.

  • dave

    She has little experience that is needed to get what she supports ideologically through. Reality would confound her at every turn. The Republican contingent included. They are food talking points, though.

  • Annette

    Agree with Pat. Only hope to get our country back to moral values and ensure that our constitution will be enforced.

    • TIME


      Your not party to the ORIGINAL Constitution nor have you ever been.

      You need to do a lot more work looking into the 1871 Constitution of the US Inc..
      Of what you have “NO RIGHT” as well are not party to the Bill of Rights either.
      But if you so wish to live in DaNile as you were Programed, then be happy little sheep.

      • libertytrain

        missed you TIME – nice to “see” you again.

  • Glen Xx

    Pat and you others, do your home work. Go the the House of Reps

    website, and learn this simple truth.

    Bachman just voted yes for the National Defense authorization act.
    She is in favor of indefinate detention

    Ron Paul voted for freedom he voted no for NDAA
    Ron Paul has my support for this election. If he doe not win the
    GOP ticket,I will vote Gary Johnson the new libertarian candidate.

    • TML

      “Bachman just voted yes for the National Defense authorization act”

      Just checked that out and it looks like I now have a #4 reason (see above)

      • s c

        TML, does anyone know how many of our elected yahoos took the time to READ and UNDERSTAND that damned NDAA legislation? Because of what is involved (more Patriot Act insanity), anyone who didn’t read and doesn’t understand the NDAA has no use for the Constitution.
        It’s not as though we aren’t lacking in proof that we have a bad case of taxation without representation. This crap just makes matters worse.
        Orwell’s 1984 will soon sound like a better deal if Uncle Scammy keeps ramming more ‘protective laws’ down our throats. The old fart doesn’t seem to see any difference between being free and living in a national concentration camp.

        • TIME

          It is an “ACT” that is only valid in the City State of DC.

          Thus only if we as a nation go back the “ORIGINAL Constitution” rather than following the Constitution of 1871 as we have been doing for all these years.
          Can we ever hope to have real freedom, we don’t have a Government, we have a Corporation known as the US Inc..
          They are the masters and have been from 1871 to this very day.
          Its no longer We the People.
          Its been WE the MASTERS from 1871 on.
          We as in “we the people” are nothing more than a people farm to serve the Masters needs.

          If what I posted were not true, then I ask how could any of the ACTS ever been passed, That is If we were still under the ORIGINAL Constitution.

          • s c

            Time, I have a question for you, and it is not rhetorical. The many elected slimers in Congress were elected to protect the nation, and occasionally pass a law or two – if needed. If they took the time to pass a law that is valid only in DC, then what was the point in wasting time thinking about it – let alone PASSING the damned thing?
            Are you trying to tell me that DC is the only place Uncle Scam could hope to find terrorists or similar scuzzies who would be covered by such a law? Either the law is flawed, Time, or your understanding is way off-base.
            Even our losers in Congress CAN’T be that STUPID. In the event that they are, then they should be neutered. Poetic justice via retrograde eugenics? That’s an eye-opener.

    • Shane

      I’m with you on this one I believe Ron Paul is the only choice to get America back on track.

  • Todd

    Michelle Bachmann is a nut. She lies, tells half truths, etc, etc. Read Politifact some time. Everything she says is a lie. Ron Paul for the Republican nomination or no one. Gingrich is slime (morals, please!). He wants to take away every constitutional right we have along with MB. I don’t believe in locking people up because I don’t agree with what they believe. Michelle does.

  • Buck

    When RON PAUL voiced his lack of support for Israel it completely solidified my support for MICHELE BACHMANN . Lets ALL TEA PARTY MEMBERS come together and elect MICHELLE BACHMANN PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA .

    • TML

      Interesting that you would support a President of this country based on his/her support of another country. Only religious zealots would do such a thing. Besides, Ron Paul only voiced his opinion that Isreal can take care of themselves (as the leaders themselves say) and that we shouldn’t be telling Isreal what to do.

  • Delia

    If Ron Paul wins the republican nomination he will beat Obama. If he does not plan on four more years of Obama it is that simple. Sad but true.

  • Brian Root

    To All,

    I guess you have not seen her interviews with Glenn Beck and better get your facts and beliefs right!!! She is against war, dissolving the most corrupt corporation ‘The Federal Reserve’, which is bailing out Europe with our tax money. Is THE REAL TEA PARTY Canidate and NEEDS to be the next POTUS. Is the ONLY one who is speaking the TRUTH and looks you in the eye while doing it! As for supporting Israel, the world was built on Judeo Christionaity and we wouldn’t be here withOUT both Jews and Christians. READ YOUR BIBLES PEOPLE. Libertarians nearly destryoed this world @ WWII and the Jewish people with their do nothing policies.

  • http://personallibertydigest sterling

    to all

    I support Michele Bachman on most of what she is for and against. I’m voting the bible. I believe she is for the u.s being an ally of Israel, not telling Israel what to do.that was a reply to TLM. Also. to TLM on your #3 earlier…Read your bible. Do you disagree with The Almighty God?

    • bob wire

      I might disagree with your interpretation of the ALL Mighty and if I did , would you mind?

    • TML

      “Also. to TLM on your #3 earlier…Read your bible. Do you disagree with The Almighty God?”

      Whether or not I agree of disagree with the bible concerning gays and lesbians is irrelevant.

      Read your Constitution and the Bill of Rights… specifically the 1st Amendment.

      Congress shall make no law respecting a religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

      • http://naver Samurai

        What does this have to do with queers? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        P.S. Remember, how you vote shows your conscience. I suggest you ponder on that for awhile.

  • bob wire

    I like her, she’s good people but I like a lot of people.

    a choice between her or palin, there’d be no contest.

  • simian pete

    You got ask yourself, and be brutally honest, “If Michelle Bachmann is elected President, what’s in it for me ? ”

    Or if Ron Paul wins – same question ” What in it for me ? ” ….

    So these Tea Party folks in California … who the heck are they ? and why should I care about there opinion?” Hey Sam Rolley !!! got anymore info ? HA HA !!

    Let’s be realistic … if Ron Paul wins I’ll probably end up losing my food stamps .. but that’s OK ! Why ? Because all them crony capitalist are going to lose their handouts too ! And all those government beuracrats making $100.000 + a year are going to start losing their jobs ! And the Dept of Education is going to disappear — that’s good ! All those high priced educators are going to get fired ! GREAT !!!!
    And ending the FED sure would make me feel alot better ! Especially when I’ll be living on dried beans, Bacon scraps, sprouted soybeans and mung beans for the 2 to 3 years it will take the economy to come back…..

    And them rich foreign rulers , getting all that foreign aid…. no more foreign aid for you guys !!! HA HA HA !!!!

    If you want to help out other countries, you could always give aid, privately. I’m hoping the private sector raises like $50 billion worth of aid so Israel can buy the latest weapons ……. I sure would give to a private foreign aid fund for Israel !!!! I’m not giving any private contributions to them ARAB OIL countries ….. They ruined my life enough with them high oil prices !!!

  • http://Yahoo MARXMAD

    I Love Michelle Bachmann. She is everything that I want in a president. Look at her record as a person. She loves this country and the people in it. Let a man screw it up and a strong woman can fix it!!! She wants us to reunite to fix this country. She is , in my eyes, the most beautiful woman on earth. Please give her support and you will never regret it.

  • jopa

    Simian Pete;All of those government bureaucrats making over #100,000 a year get to vote on their salaries.Do you really think they are going to vote themselves a wage reduction because President Paul asks them to.I don’t think so.Time for a reality check.
