Palin: Let's Merge The Tea Party And GOP!

Former vice presidential candidate and current Fox News contributor Sarah Palin said last night that the Republican Party should merge with tea partiers.

Fox's Greta Van Susteren asked if tea party candidates would end up siphoning votes from GOP nominees, or if the movement will "merge with the Republican Party."

"They need to merge," Palin said. "Definitely, they need to merge. I think those who are wanting the divisions and the divisiveness and the controversy -- those are the ones who don't believe in the message. And they're the ones, I think, stirring it up."

Those that are in an elite class

are out of the loop with anything "grassroots". Her advisors try to explain the common people to her, to the best of their understanding, at the country club.

This woman

Is an utter embarrassment to all women. Like Hitlery and Condosleeza! Does the shit rise to the top?

What a blithering ditzy GOP useful idiot twitt she is...

I am on the fence here, I am about to jettison my precinct committeeman job. The national shit is getting thick again.

The platform which has become a litmus test....I mean I just don't think I can tolerate or take it. I cannot once again walk into the meeting with a John Mcain cardboard cutout from National again.
and don't get me started on the "tea partiers" in my group. They all want the status quo with the "war on terrorism." You can tell they all watch Fox news at night. They are rabid against having real trials for terrorism in our courts. They would just as soon have the military string them up, despite letting them know they could be next on the list. It's pitiful and hopeless to me.

Third party or indeed no party would be better. How about we vote for president not on party but on what a person stands for and their ideals. They're record, not party.

I'm ready to go back to independent.

Let's just merge the Republican Party with the toilet

And send them where they belong, with all the rest of the fertilizer.

stirring it up people.She will never merge the real tea party people. We are too smart. Lets keep educating the people.

Er... Uh... NO! Go away

Er... Uh... NO! Go away Palin!

HEAR HER - this is YOUR wake up call, my "awake" friends!

I am telling you, the Lt Gov of Idaho told the room of GOP county chairmen that the Tea Party type movements are in GOP control. GET THAT THROUGH YOUR HEADS.
They infiltrated, and they took over these organizations. We need to go back to what we do best - BEING CATS. I was in the unfortunate role of trying to herd cats for a while and it sucked, but I knew, even then, that being cats was a helluva weapon.
I LOVED Oyate's talk to the "kittens." It is the leaderless, headless, IMPOSSIBLE to organize ANGRY MOB that just insists on speaking TRUTH and doing the RIGHT THING that will win the day.
Politics is THEIR baby. We can jerk them around, we cannot beat them politically. They own the media and the vote counting machines...

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

Yeah. We refuse to have a

Yeah. We refuse to have a leader! meow!

Ha Ha Ho Ho Ho ho Ha ha

NO. Won't work this time Ms Palin. We have been bertrayed one to may times.

WHAT??? THIS WOMAN HAS GONE MAD.

SHE DOES NOT GET IT.

First of all, the "TEA PARTY" is FULL of regular republicans who are FULLY IN SUPPORT of FLAWED U.S. FOREIGN POLICY.

They are nowhere close to the Ron Paul influenced original Tea Parties from where they evolved.

While a small fraction DO understand the liberty movement, it is mostly a confused bunch of old style republicans.

To be a REAL Tea Party member you'd better FULLY SUPPORT Dr. Ron Paul for president and accept NO LESS.

Palin just wants unity so she can make a run in 2012.

She is NOT A LIBERTY CANDIDATE by any means.

I think that just cured my constipation.

Surprise Surprise (in my best Gomer Pyle voice)

Well, golly Miss Palin, I never woulda guessed you'd court favor with the TEA party crowd just to try and co-opt them back into the Republican Party.

Nope, never woulda guessed it in a million years.

You sure pulled a fast one over on us.

Oh well, guess I might as well take a long nap.

I wonder how they got this idea

"Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin (R) -- a heroine of the tea-party movement"

Hah! Like we didn't see that coming

a hundred miles away :) The McCain protege has spoken.

Dream on Palin.

RP supporters do not want unconstitutional occupations of other countries. Do you understand this? Have you read the consitution lately? Have you ever read it at all?
You don't fool anyone in the real grassroots. You are a weed. You are establishment. You will be plucked out as a warmonger (and airhead).
Nice try Palin. Ain't happnin.

SC says no

E-mail from RINOHunt:

January 31, 2010

I am pleased to announce the outcome of a meeting early this afternoon. The leadership of the upstate coalition of conservative organizations met with the Chairman of the Greenville County GOP to discuss the Greenville County and State GOP plan to implement a Tea Party Republican organization. The Chairman eloquently stated the goals of the County and State GOP to move the Party toward conservative ideology and adherence to the Party platform by incumbents and candidates. The coalition stated their position that the organization of a Tea Party Republican organization was offensive and would create unnecessary problems between the two organizations. We maintained that although our goals were the same, we desired to be independent from the GOP. Furthermore, we agreed that during the next precinct reorganization we would become involved through the precinct level.

After both sides aired their positions, it was mutually agreed that the County GOP would abandon their plan to create a Tea Party Republican organization and the website for the TPR would be taken down as soon as practical. The County Chairman has contacted the State Chairwoman and communicated our agreement with her. She has also agreed that there would be no attempt by the State GOP to start a Tea Party Republican organization in any County in South Carolina. Realizing our shared goals, they have decided to create a liaison that will work to reach our mutual goals by maintaining direct lines of communication between the State Party and our Grass Roots organizations. A representative will be selected to serve as the liaison from the State Republican Party and that person will work closely with the Leadership of our individual organizations.

A press conference will be set up at which time the grass roots organizations and the State Chairwoman will publically announce this agreement. We expect this announcement to take place within a few days.....

SC GOP was pretty sure of themselves

"it was mutually agreed that the County GOP would abandon their plan to create a Tea Party Republican organization and the website for the TPR would be taken down as soon as practical."

What about a merging of the

What about a merging of the Tea Party movement and C4L? There has got to be some kind of real benefit that can be wrung from these disparate groups and I'd prefer we took back the movement "we" started from the desperate, dying clutches of the GOP... may it RIP.

I'll Consider That A Joke, Sarah !

The tea parties are about Taxation without representation, in case you didn't know.

The Bush Republican regime bankrupted the country, and tea party supporters know this, they're protesting ""ALL"" taxation supported crooks !

beesting

Really?

Is that why half the people at my local tea party had anti-Obama and socialism signs and spoke Glen Beckian? The Neocon/Repukican diety Sean Hannity himself was involved.

Look - I would love to think the Tea Party thing was all people like us who are Costitutionalists and pro-freedom. But, I think the truth is that the majority of the Tea Partiers will support and vote GOP no matter what. The movement has already been corrupted.

I personally held a Ron Paul Sign at the 3 Tea Party....

....Demonstrations I attended.

The first Tea party was specifically non-political party, in my opinion.
The second one was united with many random speakers from the crowd, simply opposing taxation and the TARP bailouts.
Ron Paul's H.R. 1207 was mentioned loud and clear while I waved my Ron Paul Hope for America sign wildly so everyone could see it.

The third one was a general big government taxation protest with many Ron Paul supporters present that I knew.

Ugh! Hannity... 'nuf said.

Ugh! Hannity... 'nuf said.

Of course Palin and the establishment GOP want

to absorb the Tea Party people. The GOP establishment wants their votes, not their input.
The Sarah Palins are around to co-opt the movement and thus destroy it. I hope the Tea Party people don't fall for her or any of the others.

Why would the GOP need to

Why would the GOP need to absorb the Tea Partiers? They've already been co-opted by disaffected GOP'ers. The real question is, would it make any difference... and the answer is "no".

Which message, Sarah

Hmmm? You sound like Obama. Never saying what you really mean.

We can merge the Republican

We can merge the Republican Party with the Tea Party Movement when the Republican Party repudiates the Council on Foreign Relations, and it's globalists schemes.

We can unite when the Republican Party works to abolish the Federal Reserve, and admits that Republican politicians have benefited for decades by swindling the American people through this fraud.

The two shall become one, when the Republican Party starts taking the Constitution seriously. When the Republicans start repealing the unconstitutional agencies and legislation they passed over the last eighty years.

When the Republican Party announces that an armed citizenry is an asset to the nation, and stops supporting civilian disarmament, we can work together.

And when the Republican Party gets us out of the UN, the IMF, the World Bank, GATT, NAFTA, NATO, and all the other threats to our national sovereignty, we can entertain the idea of merging. Until then, they are still just as much opposed to Constitutional government as their Democrat partners in crime.

Right, but the chances of that happening are so slim

I say we should start floating the idea that the republican and democratic party should merge. And the Tea party be the 2nd party.

You said it !

without missing a beat! That is exactly the point!
