Sam Donaldson Tells Tea Partiers 'It's Not Your Country Anymore - It's Our Country'

Sam Donaldson went after the Tea Party this weekend.

During a discussion about 2012's biggest game changers on the syndicated Chris Matthews Show, Donaldson said, "The greatest slogan that I hated during this last campaign was 'We want to take back our country.' Guys, it's not your country anymore - it's our country."

i can't respect anyone

with a comb over like that.

That's not your hair any more.

hmmm...

Republican websites are saying the Republican speaker may get the boot.

Heard about that one yet Sammy?

Next story please. Scary who were are used to getting news from. Clueless.

Sam's buddy Ali

Drink up, Sammie!

And go drive off a cliff!

What would the Founders do?

Sam Donaldson's eyebrows

are so big that they need their OWN country.

Ann in Florida

Hilarious!

He is certainly harboring terrorists in those eyebrows as well.

This is one big illustration..

..that saying "we need to take our country back" is creating aversion.

You should only say that if you are speaking for and representing all U.S.A. citizens.
Anyone who doesn't associate themselves with the person who utters the phrase, will probably see the phrase and person as a problem or threat.

Donaldson took the phrase and added a negative context. That's probably what will happen to other people who utter the phrase as well.

So, it's not a good phrase to use to win people over.

What in the hell is he talking about....???

It is not our country any more?
You mean if someone believes in the constitution and wants their elected representatives to follow the constitution, this is no longer their county? Our country? Well then...now exactly who's country is it Sam? Who in the hell are you speaking for?
What a dork.

RAND PAUL or NOT AT ALL

Wrong, Wrong, Wrong

The REAL Tea Party (us) are the future of the GOP. Heck, even the fake Tea Party (Tea Party Express, et al.) are better than the GOP because they stand for something. Sam Donaldson is an old windbag and a NWO scumbag.

.

The liberals on the DP go after the tea party all the time....
makes one wonder.

theyll be around shortly to stick up for sam.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Agreed

Many people here hate the Tea Party more than the Progressives and I never understood that. Donaldson is the epitome of who we should be fighting - race-baiting, collectivist, big government, progressive. He is saying that it is impossible to restore America. I don't agree with him.

Many of you inspired the Tea Party Movement in 2007 and it picked up steam in 2009. The left killed it with race-baiting and media propaganda because it was an emerging powerful force. They created Occupy to offer a competing narrative. It worked.

We need to rebuild our conservative coalition focusing on the core ideology that binds us together with garden variety conservatives in the broader Tea Party Movement. Progressives are the enemy. Media is the enemy. Cultural Marxists that use identity and resentment to usher in more government are the enemy.

Donaldson is referring to the

collectivist society "we" have been engineered into through the school brainwashing and media mainstreaming changes they want and demonizing traditional values and religions that compete with collectivist state worship. The "Tea Partiers" MUST assimilate, become part of Donaldsons collective, the "OUR" country he boasts of "now" existing, the great "we" hive that serves the state. Donaldson grew wealthy on farm subsidies, BTW. Another pig at the state trough, another pig "more equal" than other pigs of the Great "We".
These smug old commies are detestable.

Compromise

I have grown to really dislike this word. This is what he is really talking about,the tea party should bend a little farther. What the hell is happening to the Constitution, 30 years ago it was the law of the land. Know it's just a piece of paper to wipe your ass with. What a shame, RP was 100% correct when he said the founding fathers would be ashamed of us. Sam doesn't understand this!!!

The Tea Party is a moving

The Tea Party is a moving target. Different people have different definitions of what it is. The one thing that everyone knows for sure is what it isn't. It is not the 2008 Republican nominee John McCain. It is not the 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney. Therefore, it hasn't been tried in a national election. Let's try a liberty candidate in 2016 who really believes in smaller government, the Constitution, and freedom across the board and see what happens.

"Where liberty is, there is my country." -Benjamin Franklin

Sounds great to me. End the

Sounds great to me. End the federal government completely, go back to 50 individual states and let everyone vote with their feet. I guarantee you won't see to many wealthy libs living in their own liberal paradises if that were the case.

"In reality, the Constitution itself is incapable of achieving what we would like in limiting government power, no matter how well written."

~ Ron Paul, End the Fed

"Our Country?"

And your debt too!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

Depends......

Depends what the meanning of "our" is......

I'm sure our, our isn't they're our......

Donaldson? That guy's still around?

It wont be long though- God willing.

This vapid parasite is still

taking subsidies for his so called farm land. What a loser/hypocrite....

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.)

until we finally stop

paying.

the mobs will eat "men" like you, sam.

Looks like the Rogaine Minoxidil spilled over on his eyebrows

Have another shot of vodka Sam, it'll be OK

great! that's awesome...

was it from the yellow man shooting at you?

my father was there (vietnam)...my grandfather won his purple heart at pearl harbor...i served on aircraft carriers

now, with your background, i KNOW you will "come around" as Dr. Paul has stated...
its hard, my friend, to let go of all you have believed in all of your life but, remember, its NOT your Country and it's ideals you are fighting against WITH us...we are fighting against the men, and women, that would corrupt a great Nation...we are fighting against the offspring of the men that funded hitler, do you even know that?

Join, or Die! remember that? and its not me that will kill you, its the tyranny of oppression you ignore that will strike you dead, without predjudice

Sorry to anyone who took my

Sorry to anyone who took my comment literally -- I have not actually won three purple hearts. In the 2004 election there was a viral online video of Bush and Kerry singing that song with Kerry repeating the line "I won three purple hearts".

OK. I don't know what you're

OK. I don't know what you're alluding to, but, ahh, congratulations on your victory. What or who did you beat? Whatever your answer, I'm going to bed. Merry Christmas, nothappy.
