Not At All Racist Tea Party Express Chairwoman Goes on CNN to Explain Why Obama Doesn’t Love America Like ‘We’ Do

Hello Wonketeers, please enjoy this fun video wherein chairwoman of the Tea Party express Amy Kremer tries to explain why “Obama doesn’t love America the way we do.” Hint: it has something to do with him being “about more a global — having, uh, global, um, oh what’s the word? Being more global, one-world, with other countries, and it’s not about the shining city on the hill, the greatness that has always been America that our Founding Fathers were all about.” Does that clear it up?

Obama is more “global,” more “one-world,” and Mitt, well, he loves America! He has taken “companies that are failing” and turned them around, and also saved the Olympics. And he loves America so very, very much that he protects it from his tax revenue by stashing vast sums of money in the Cayman Islands. But then this nice man on the panel points out that Romney took over companies and put them out of work, so what about that?

This revelation, of course, prompted some sober reflection and an in-depth discussion about the benefits and limitations of unrestrained capitalism. HA! HA! Of course, it did not! Amy Kremer responded to this news with “um, well, you know what? President Obama’s energy policy, if it’s implemented, it’s gonna cost — I mean — it’s going to cost us 7.3 million jobs by 2020.” And then Soledad O’Brien is all, “what does creating jobs have to do with loving the country?” And Amy Kremer stuck by her guns and said “I just don’t think he loves America like we do, he’s more about one world!”

And there you have it, REAL AMERICA has spoken. Obama doesn’t love this country because he has a global perspective and did not run a venture capitalist firm, and Romney — well, he loves America like “we” do, we of the dancing horses and car elevators and real Americans.

        I'm guessing she _lervs_ 32oz sodas more than we do as well. Unless, there's booze hiding in them, at which point it's no contest.

    1. HELisforHEL

      As do we of the Wonkette. With good reason. My gawd this woman is every bit the tea bagging idiot you would expect.
      "Uh, it's uh, he's uh…"
      Say it, honey. Say he doesn't love the country like the white folks do. Just say it and expose your stupid, mean-spirited, racist agenda. Stand up for your stupidity, because it's as clear as day.
      Fucking twat.

  1. actor212

    He doesn't love America the way she does. It's true.

    His love is pure and unadulterated.

    Her love is available for a six pack and a five dollar bill.

    1. miss_grundy

      Wow!!! So the RNC is provincial! Who knew that these people with all their money have never traveled anywhere, have never experienced another culture abroad or here in the USA. No wonder Mittens doesn't know how to act when he goes abroad and makes stupid comments abroad about our allies.

      1. HELisforHEL

        He's a Mormon. They travel, they learn a language, and they do it all from within the bubble of their made-up, grifter 'religion'. They only meet people of other cultures when they assault them, trying to sell their Tom Watt message of golden tablets and space colonies and American Jesus Jewish Indians.
        They are socially inept and uncompromisingly arrogant, which is quite a combination. And we've certainly seen the results (every time Mittens opens his yap).

    1. FakaktaSouth

      NOT ME. I don't love America so much that I believe the white people here are better than anyone else on the planet, but that may just be because I know so many of them.

  2. DrunkIrishman

    WHY EVEN GIVE THESE MOTHER FUCKING INBRED ASSHOLES AN AVENUE TO SPEW THEIR LIES AND BIGOTRY AND HATE? C'MON, CNN! YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE A GODDAMN RESPECTABLE NEWS ORGANIZATION!

    Seriously, guys, what next – interviewing random homeless people who ramble on and on about how Elvis killed Kennedy with Barbara Bush's hideous pearls? Hell, that'd actually make more sense than these tea tards. So, by all means … go do that.

    1. DemmeFatale

      This bitch was SO in over her head! I loved watching flounder, and even get schooled by the journalist dude on her left. Is that the best they've got? Really?

    2. Willardbot9000_V2.5

      Hah…I don't mean to rain on your parade, but CNN does employ Erick son of Erick. But yes, this was a completely stupid and ridiculous segment which does little more than show that when teabaggers are asked to elaborate on their deeply-held buzz slogan-beliefs they get all stammery and stupid. If she'd said it was because he was black at least it would have meant SOMETHING, not this deep-fried brainfart of wingnut algorithms (which translates to "because he's black" anyway)….mostly baggers only let their inner klansmen show in safe company, like on Faux…

      1. ibwilliamsi

        Well, they had to find SOMEONE to represent the bagger point of view, and sadly she was the best they could come up with.

    3. Dumbedup

      True man, so true. But speech is the sunshine, the antidote to stupidity, more speech from these types and eventually most normal people are repelled, I mean, c'mon guy doesn't love his country? He's risking his motherfucking life every minute in that job with these racist trogladytes stomping around, armed to the teeth.

      1. miss_grundy

        Or to bitch slap somebody. I would love to see her get into a cat fight with some of these Republican bitches. And while she is at it, I wish she would bitch slap David Brooks. I'm watching PBS and they are giving Brooks too much camera time.

    1. Maman

      Why are we the only people who say that? The GOP is trying to pretend no can tell, and the DNC is being too polite to acknowledge the shit covered elephant in the room. But WE are the rude ones for saying what we see and hear.

      1. Monsieur_Grumpe

        I know. I was listening to some lady on the radio being interviewed and she was going on about how she couldn't vote for Obama because the country needs a first lady that LOOKS like a first lady. It is time to get rude. Sorry for using the N word.

        1. HELisforHEL

          If that was NPR, I heard it too…else it was some other racist tea-tard using their poorly coded language for "She's a black lady! She can't be no First Lady!"

          Heaven forfend that we have a dignified, intelligent, sophisticated First Lady. No, Tea-Tards and conservatives would prefer another LetThemEatCake Barbara Bush styled turd. Or a robotic drug-addled Pickles type. AnnBot certainly fits squarely in the middle. And best of all!!!1!!11! SHE WHITE!!!1!!!!1!

    2. Willardbot9000_V2.5

      I thought in tea tard venacular outside of Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, etc. it's "near"…Santorum-style.

  3. Doktor Zoom

    You can only be a successful president if you've run a company. Like non-entrepreneurs Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, both Roosevelts, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Reagan, George HW Bush, and Clinton, none of whom, by extension, could have loved our country. For a real America lover, you must look to successful businessman George W Bush.

      1. MosesInvests

        Yeah, and look how many jerbs he created at Mount Vernon! OK, they didn't pay very well, but…..

      1. BerkeleyBear

        Hoover wasn't really as much a businessman as a middle manager. Which is why his biggest lasting change on government (other than getting FDR elected) was creating the "entrenched bureaucracy" the GOP now rails against. Seriously, he did a massive reorganization of government and started a policy (that lasted until Reagan) of admin agencies calling their own shots, subject to "legislative veto" (which the Court struck down on bicameralism and presentment grounds in INS v. Chadha, but still happens infomally).

        1. LibertyLover

          Clearly, you know more than I do about Hoover, but I do know that he served as Commerce Secretary to Coolidge who didn't think very highly of him. I think Coolidge (a man of few words) said of him: "for six years that man has given me unsolicited advice—all of it bad."

    1. RadioBowels

      Another thing Dok, I would say at this juncture there is no one on this planet more qualified to be President than BHO. Their whole stupid "lacks experience" tack is utterly useless.

    2. tessiee

      "For a real America lover, you must look to successful businessman George W Bush."

      Skating perilously close to Todd Akin's definition of "love", there.

  4. JustPixelz

    And yea, Mitt Romney so loved the world that he gave it as many jobs as he could. And called it outsourcing. And yea, though he walked in the shadow of a burning Bush he learned not the lessons of those days. And yea, though he walked in the shadow of his father, he learned not to speak of tax returns.

    1. BoatOfVelociraptors

      That much snark packed into a single paragraph could power a laser firing Martian rover for at least 2 years.

  5. coolhandnuke

    There is only a Dark Continent and a White Continent in a Tea Baggers' exceptionally polarized, unenlightened, hemispherically inbalanced brain.
    And they all know which one Obama is from.

  6. belmontreport

    "He hasn't run anything." You know, other than the entire country for 3 1/2 years. How can you say that the incumbent president is less experienced than the guy running against him?

    Also… what a dumb racist she is.

    1. hagajim

      Dumb, fat cow racist…seems to be a trend. I wonder if she mounted her hoveround to leave the CNN studio.

    2. ibwilliamsi

      I know! That "he has no experience/hasn't run anything" statement gets me every time! He run Navy Seal Team Six, suckas.

  7. Chet Kincaid_

    I don't have time for this. Does Soledad leap across the table and slap this broad like Melissa Harris-Perry did on MSNBC a few days ago, shouting "who's 'we' bitch, who's 'we'?!"

    1. Geminisunmars

      Is this about the "what is riskier than being poor" outrage? Well, being rich will be risky here pretty soon, come the revolution.

      1. ibwilliamsi

        I'm just so glad that there's microwave popcorn now so that I don't have to do my knitting while watching Madame Guillotine.

  8. SexySmurf

    Romney loves America so much if he fucked it he would totally spend the night and cuddle and then call it the next day. Obama would just hit it and quit it. Maybe he'd stick around until Colbert was over, but then he would gather up his clothes and sneak out while it was in the kitchen getting a drink of water.

  9. Doktor Zoom

    "If you listen to a lot of conservatives, they'll tell you that the difference between them and us is that conservatives love America and that liberals hate America. That we 'blame America first'. That we're suspicious of patriotism and always think our country's in the wrong. As conservative radio and TV personality Sean Hannity says, we liberals 'train our children to criticize America, not celebrate it.'

    They don't get it. We love America just as much as they do. But in a different way. You see, they love America the way a four-year old loves her mommy. Liberals love America like grown-ups. To a four-year-old, everything Mommy does is wonderful and anyone who criticizes Mommy is bad. Grown-up love means actually understanding what you love, taking the good with the bad, and helping your loved one grow. Love takes attention and work and is the best thing in the world.

    That's why we liberals want America to do the right thing. We know America is the hope of the world, and we love it and want it to do well. We also want it to do good…

    …It's called honesty. What do you think is more important to a loving relationship: honesty or lies?"

    –Al Franken, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them

    1. gullywompr

      "We love America just as much as they do."

      Now see, that's where the future President Franken has it wrong. Hate just oozes out of them, spitting on congressmen, using "surveyor's marks", oppressing votes, Hitler comparisons, and on and on and on… What they have is nothing like love at all.

    2. BoroPrimorac

      I know conservatives love America more than liberals because they stuck yellow ribbons to their cars when we sent our boys to I-raq.

      1. grex1949

        Me, too, I'm proud to say. I contributed a paltry $300 to his campaign, which turned out to be just enough (at $1 per vote) to carry the day. He's a worthy person to take Paul Wellstone's seat in the Senate.

    3. AnAmericanInTO

      I also remember from that book:

      "My country right or wrong is like saying 'My mother drunk or sober.'"

    4. prommie

      Their problem is they think the only solution to every problem is a gun, kick ass, war. They think the solution to every problem is a jingoistic "lets kick ass," make my day aggressive "lets kick its ass, lets kick everyone's ass, Amurrica, fuck yeah" lets kill something. Seriously, these people just want to kill anything different, anything threatening, and God knows, everything is threatening to them, they just want to kill. Its their answer to everything, really.

    5. PsycWench

      Perfect.
      May I also add that a four-year-old is pissed when her mommy loves another person also, because it seems to mean less love for the four-year-old. A grownup understands that mommy can love many people and it doesn't change the love mommy has for each person. So teabaggers are freaked if they think Obama loves another country while liberals think loving other countries is a good thing.

      1. grex1949

        True. And the four-year-old probably doesn't care (or maybe doesn't even know) when Mommy develops a crack cocaine habit, or sniffs gasoline, to get high, whereas the adult seeks to do something about self-destructive behaviors in a loved one.

  10. Dr_Zoidberg

    This kind of bullshit gives me the hives. I love my country. I love America, and am proud to be an American. Just because I don't wrap myself in the flag, don't spout jingoist propaganda, or refuse to acknowledge the problems in and with the United States does not make me less of an American!

    Bitch.

    1. actor212

      Conservatives are all about the first part of the Carl Schurz quote: "My country, right or wrong."

      Liberals are all about the second part: "…if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right."

    2. starfanglednut

      And there's a big difference between loving your country, which is a normal human tendency, and thinking your country is inherently superior to every other country on earth, which is the normal tendency of a narcissist.

    1. Baconzgood

      Hey man, you can get away with a lotta shit in my eyes…but don't ever,EVER, cross the pork product sandwich line again. You've been warned.

      1. tessiee

        I've read elsewhere that Ms. Elliot's weight fluctuated drastically due to extreme diets, and yo-yo dieting contributed to the stress on her heart. Ironically, the big girl with the big, beautiful voice might very well have lived longer and/or been better off if she'd just stayed fat.

        1. doloras

          It would be really ironic if Cass Elliot died of the same thing that Karen Carpenter did (heart failure from losing too much weight).

    1. CommieLibunatic

      Does she mean to suggest we're a Class II or III Civilization on the Kardashev Scale? Because from all the social strife, raping of the earth, and near-constant warfare, I'd say we're still squarely Class 0.

    2. tessiee

      Also, if there are other worlds, how can we persuade them to go live on a different one, and leave this one for the smart, decent people?

      1. Dudleydidwrong

        No need to ask, "Spit or swallow?" because we already know that she's swallowed the whole bullshit line.

      1. Dudleydidwrong

        What you call "air" is a product of a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bain Capital. Careful, or it can be taken away from you.

  11. Baconzgood

    I'm a registered Republican (I do this because I can vote in the primaries and fuck up the GOP from within-I suggest you do it as well) and about 2 years ago a Tea Bagger came to my house to get some money out of me or my signature or somthing. This festering pustule of a human could barely brain fart out a coherent sentence as he furrowed his brow not to call the POTUS a "nazi-commie-racist-foreigner" at least 85 times in a 5 min. converstation. I'm pointing this out because I said to him, before slamming the door in his face "It would help your cause if you, umm, knew about politics before you went canvassing. You Talking point fox news dolt."

    That is the Tea Party in america. Strength through tarded.

      1. Lascauxcaveman

        Aw, I can never be mean to those guys. They're always so polite and clean cut, and pretty sheepish, as they know the whole "mission" thing is kinda futile and the only people who listen to their spiels are the feebleminded and lonely.

        So I always just try to steer the conversation around to their bicycles.

        "So, what're ya riding?" "How many miles a day you guys doing around here; you must be in pretty good shape?" "I know this great awesome hill not to far from here, if you want to climb real hard for an hour and then have a gnarly fast descent; I'm talking white-knuckle shit, put the fear of God in ya."

          1. Baconzgood

            I know I'm repeting myself.

            Once at a stay at home vacation I invited them into my house and made lemon aid for them (I was bored and wanted to delay my staining of the deck). I put down the pitcher of lemon aid by them, walked to my solid maple wood door, and lached the dead bolt. I looked over my shoulder at them and gave my best Shining grinn and said "now we can talk and the guy next door won't hear us". I never seen these kids want to leave the place faster. They didn't touch the lemon aid.

          2. MosesInvests

            My cousin, who has long black hair and can get a real crazy look in her eyes when she wants to, once saw Jehovah's Witnesses coming down the block. She proceeded to put on a long black dress, light a bunch of candles, draw a pentagram on the floor where it was visible from the front door, and put the "Exorcist" soundtrack on the stereo. She told me the JW's couldn't get away fast enough, and never bothered her again.

          3. Lascauxcaveman

            A couple months ago, I was walking out to my mailbox, and a car pulls off the road, with three very hot looking, stylishly dressed 20-something girls in it. Stopping for directions, I thought, because a lot of people miss the turnoff for the local Natl Park destination about 2 miles down the road from me.

            No, it turns out they were Christianists, out doing their missionary work, and they roll down the window, smile and say "Hi," and hand me a pamphlet with the headline "How to Wake Up Happy Every Morning!"

            Of course the only possible response was to say "Waking up next to you three would be a VERY happy morning for me."

            One of them actually thought that was pretty funny, but the other two looked pretty horrified.

      2. tessiee

        Somebody who I can't remember, but who might have been Joe Bob Briggs, had a solution I like: "Sure, come right in. But first, write down your address and directions to your house, so I can come over tomorrow morning and tell you what all *I* think about religion".

    1. fuflans

      i voted for santorum in the march primary (for that very 'fuck with' reason) and now all 5 cook county republicans won't stop flirting with me.

      1. ibwilliamsi

        Just moved to North Carolina (ACK!) and they have "Unafilliated" voters. We can get either ballot at the primaries. That way we can fuck with the R's when needed, or support our D when the R's are just hopeless.

        As to the door to door JW's and LDS's, I recommend a bottle of Jack Daniels. It's quicker than getting naked, and all you have to say is "I'd get you a glass if I had a clean one. I don't got a cold or nothing, you can just take a hit off the bottle."

    1. anniegetyerfun

      No, no, he just doesn't have as deep an understanding of it as Romney does because of the shared Anglo-Saxon heritage.

      1. NorthStarSpanx

        And Palin was doggin him early on in her defeat for not doing more to strengthen our ties with Canada. C.a.n.a.d.a. Canada, with whom many states of our Union share a land-boundary that we have with Canada. She loved Canada so much, she gave a Canadian company $500 million dollars to build her a pipeline to nowhere.

  12. MissTaken

    and it’s not about the shining city on the hill, the greatness that has always been America that our Founding Fathers were all about.

    Fecking maddening to watch the other weenies on the panel engage this vacuous blowhard on policy arcana, thereby implying that there could in fact be mainstream policies that betray a lack of love for this country–"notwithstanding France's deep historic ties to Syria, had the president actually deferred to the Frogs in this particular matter, you would totally have a point and I would have to concede that the president does, indeed, not love America. I must point out, however that …."

    Really? The reporter shoots down her "Mitt Romney is a job creator" line by reminding her that Bain killed jobs at numerous companies, but still made a profit, by some brainless rant about Obama's *energy* policy? Is that really the best the wingnuts can do now?

    Starting to feel better about November…

    1. actor212

      Typical wingnut attempt to derail an honest conversation. I've seen trolls do this endlessly.

      Take "A trillion dollars for two wars and what did we get for it?" and a troll will turn it into a diatribe on Solyndra.

    OK, the tea party nutcase said one factually accurate thing. Putting her ahead of that pack…

  24. SmutBoffin

    When the Tea Party Lady said that she wasn't any good with numbers, well, you could have knocked me over with a feather.

    EVERYONE knows that Tea baggers adore numbers and the cold rationality that comes with them above all else!

  25. Joshua Norton

    “I just don’t think he loves America like we do, he’s more about one world!”

    Sure. The teabaggers and wingnutz "love" America sooooo much. Except that they're the ones who feel the government should micromanage our personal lives along strict, conservative Christianist principles, that anyone who wishes to attain a college degree is an elitist and a "snob" (I think that was Santorum's word), that science and history are not worth knowing (gets in the way of religious and political propaganda) , that learning another language and living abroad makes you a traitor to America, that anything other than strict conformity to fundimentalist lower class "Chistian" ideals and their white trash prudery is innately wrong.

    I could go on, but I'm sure you get the idea…….

  26. Badonkadonkette

    In fact, if she had to quantify it, Kremer would say Obama only loves America about 3/5s as much as the Tea Party.

    Well. Someone had to say it.

  27. prommie

    As a drunkard, and thus a citizen of the world, I resemble that ladies remark.

    But seriously, its not even half as racist as Willard telling a Brit journalist that Obama doesn't appreciate the "special relationship" (of whiteness) between Merrie Olde Englande and the US on account of Obama not being anglo-saxon (white).

  28. Tundra Grifter

    Well, she's just as articulate as Duh Gov'.

    She's the T-Bagger Chair, alright. The Empty Chair.

  29. JustPixelz

    That woman embodies what I despise about our political discourse today: The demonization of the opposition. It's almost entirely a Republican/Tea Party/Rush Limbaugh-esque phenomenon. The Democrats hate America, they want America to fail, they want the terrorists to win, they are traitors. It's loathsome to say such things about your fellow citizens.

    I thought Dubya Bush was an dilettante when it came to governing. He lacked the curiosity and thoughtfulness to be a good president. Sadly, his performance and decisions proved me right. But I never thought he hated America, even as he undermined our greatness with short-sighted tax cuts, ill-conceived wars. I didn't think he hated America when he failed to keep us safe on 9/11.

    When Republicans wave the bloody shirt to question Democrats' loyalty, they reveal a lack of ideas and a lack of respect for how America works.

    1. Baconzgood

      I have to agree with you. I didn't like Dubya but I never doubted his love for this country, even when he ignored the "memo". I just felt he wasn't too smart and his admin. Was super thin skinned. Also, I've NEVER SEEN or heard of a VP wielding that much power. Dick….I questioned his luv for this country.

    2. Barrelhse

      This is all highly orchestrated by BIG money, so they must be convinced it will work. It is, of course, only one facet of the overall strategy to establish a permanent Republican majority.

    3. tessiee

      I unfriended someone on assbook because I posted something about President Obama startng a work project (which he actually did), and her response was, "Obama will never do it, because he doesn't care about anything but tearing our country apart. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it". I responded, "Then I guess we don't have anything to talk about" and unfriended her.

      It wasn't that her opinion disagreed wtih mine. It's that she reflexively disliked President Obama to the point of *ignoring the actual content of the post*, and pretty much said that she would ignore anything anyone said, did, or documented that went against her prejudices.

      1. DemmeFatale

        Reflexive dismissal of facts: A lady I know who is an avid Rush Limbaugh listener recently confidently asserted that Obama cared so little for Neil Armstrong's death that he didn't even order the flags to be at half-mast. When I replied that indeed he had, she could hardly believe it.
        She also thinks that global warming is a big hoax, and asked if I had seen melting tundra with my own eyes. (As if to prove her "point.")
        Then she went on about the lack of Godlessness in America. Maybe I should have asked her if she had seen God with her own eyes.
        We (try to) avoid talking about politics most of the time. *sigh*

    Also irritating? Shining City on the Hill is Reagan stealing from John Winthop who was English who was stealing from St. Augustine of Hippo who was African, specifically? Algerian.

  31. Mapmonger

    And whenever you see a Republican referencing the "City on the Hill," they TOTALLY NEVER GET WHAT JOHN WINTHROP MEANT: he was admonishing his parishioners not to screw up, because the whole world would be watching. As opposed to every Republican since and including Reagan, who seem to think it means U.S.A.!!! U.S.A.!!! U.S.A.!!!

    Also yes, the word she is looking for is "White."

    And the answer, iburl, is "all of them except for the ladeez."

  32. DonnyKerabotsos

    Looks like CNN bought their set from 'Car Talk.'

    And who decided it's a good idea to have guest sitting shoulder to shoulder like that?
    How are you going to have a good, finger in the face, spittle-flying, 'you can't talk to ME that way, you cocksucker' argument with someone who's sitting next to you on a theme park ride?

    You never see Giraldo and Bill'O sit that way which is why we LOVE to watch them fight.

    1. finallyhappy

      Car talk has a set? I love the radio show with Click and Clack(and it is going off the air- only reruns- right?)

  33. mavenmaven

    "one world", there's that little christiany conspiracy hint, a la Hal Lindsey and the "one world gubbumint of SATAN".

      1. Veritas78

        You do know her nickname's Krispy, doncha?

        That could be a great stage name in Fat Porn: Krispy Kremer!

  34. Badonkadonkette

    "He's never run anything."

    New rule: anytime anyone says Obama "has never run anything," it's appropriae to immediatly iterrupt them and say "You stupid cunt, he's been running the country for four years." And then point out that anyone who says America isn't "anythng" hates America.

  35. Jus_Wonderin

    How did she get out of the corral? I hate these mavericks. Always wandering away. I should just sell this old cow.

  36. BigSkullF*ckingDog

    These people love America so much that they refuse to leave it. Going to fucking Canada would be considered unpatriotic. This is also one of the many things that make these people ignorant, awful turds.

  37. PinkoPopulist

    Clearly she's referencing the fact that Barack HUSSEIN NOooOBama is a socialist who subscribes to radical philosophies of one-world government. It's only a matter of time before the UN comes to take our guns, freedom and most importantly, our beer.

  38. sbj1964

    She shot herself in the foot with the ultimate racist bullshit."We want to restore (our)heritage." GOP/Tea bagger racist code for we hate black people.

  39. thefrontpage

    Before a piano fell from the sky and conked her on the head, Amy Kremer was a lesbian porn star named Aim-me Creamer. Really–you can look it up at the IAMDB, the Internet Adult Movie Data Base, which is never wrong and always factually correct regarding nearly every adult film ever made in the history of the United States of America.

    1. hagajim

      Ethnic is way too high end for her. She meant Ni**er. But she at least had enough sense to not say it out loud.

  40. Mittens Howell, III

    In the 'Republican Swimsuit and Cheeseburgers' Calendar she is 'Miss September' following Chris Christie's 'Mister July'.

  41. kyeshinka

    There's "loving" America, and really loving it by merely suggesting it wouldn't be a bad idea for this place to get its shit together.

  42. Guppy

    Her hair does nothing for me, but otherwise Debs is a lot easier on my hetero male eyes than Ren Stimpius.

  43. fawkedifiknow

    You could put that wackos words directly into a speech by Sarah Palin, and Sarah wouldn't miss a beat, or sound any more ignorant than she usually does.

  44. GemlikeFlame

    Why is it that when one of these so-called spokesmen speaks, they immediately shove both feet and a bushel basket of stupid in their mouths? Are they really their organization's brightest and best? The Tea Party, you say?

    Ah. Got it. Nevermind.

  45. finallyhappy

    Hey, post something to her twitter- she posted that she arrived at the DNC at a secret location(I'm thinking Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme)

  46. joobajooba

    Obama's all "I'd like to teach the world to sing," and she's all, 'there's no stoppin' the cretins from hoppin'"

  47. glamourdammerung

    I think you all are being critical of this teabagger for being refreshingly honest about President Obama does not "love America the way they do". After all, when has any of us heard President Obama openly being seditious or advocating seceding (or plotting to murder cops, members of our military, our politicians, etc.)?

  48. TribecaMike

    She forgot to mention how Mitt parted the waters of The Great Salt Lake before leading his people into the Olympics ice rink, where they dined on money from heaven (aka the public coffers).

  49. barto

    Crap, I was so blotto last night I tried to park the dancing horse in the car elevator and one of the caddies in the stables. Dumb old me, amirite America?

  50. JackObin

    The only thing this slob loves better than Obama is cheesburgers. Jesus Christ, is everyone in the tea party 300 pounds?

  51. Tundra Grifter

    So impressed with Clint Eastwood's impression of Ronald Reagan, Amy Kremer decides to share her classic Sarah Palin with the world.

  52. tigernole

    just how much longer will this nonsense go on until one of these lunatics use the "N" word during a news cast?

  53. mustangsavvy

    Amy Kremer back stage, pre-interview:

    "So I really can't just say that he's black and that's just the whole thing wrong with him?"

  54. ManchuCandidate

    Fucking Teabaggers. It's like they want to make the Obama Years into Blazing Saddles.

    It's hilarious that the Teabaggers aren't even as smart as Mongo let alone Mr Taggert.

    1. tessiee

      "It's like they want to make the Obama Years into Blazing Saddles."

      As long as I get to hear, "OK, folks! Let's WIPE 'EM OUT!!", I'm OK with that.

  55. AncienReggie

    I don't love America like they do, either. I love America as a progressive nation with jobs, equality, health care, housing and hope for all.

    OK, I guess we all love a dream more than a reality … but the dream I love is a better dream-nation than the hateful, tiered country douchetoons worship and pretend to remember.

  56. Baconzgood

    Obama can't love america. In order to love america you have to threaten to over throw an elected president with 2nd ammendment rhetoric.

  57. DocChaos

    Sadly this woman's stringing together of misunderstood catchphrases, fact-free accusations, and random unrelated assumptions with dubious numbers she doesn't actually understand, ends up sounding like "common sense" to her Teatard compatriots.

      1. DocChaos

        You mean old what's-her-name who has been airbrushed out of the Teapublican family portrait now that they have Paul Ryan to spooge over. I'd nearly forgotten about her.

    1. tessiee

      Ooh!
      I like this game!
      Let me guess…
      *thinks*
      Is it Paul Ryan?
      It's Paul Ryan, isn't it?
      I bet his nose would make a really keen sound if you broke it!

  58. Baconzgood

    This is what happens when the Tea Party isn't thrown slow pitch soft balls by AM radio. Their case falls apart. But that is what the Liberal/Jewish/bias media does. They ask questions. I would love to see her on Charlie Rose ( circa PBS 80s) for an hour. he wouldn't even air it. Chuck would say "man that fat bitch is stupid. We can't put this on the air. Better run another episode of The Young Ones or Are You Being Served.

    1. tessiee

      "This is what happens when the Tea Party isn't thrown slow pitch soft balls by AM radio."

      Cartman [pretending to be interviewer]: Eric, why are you so awesome?
      Cartman [as himself]: I just am.

  59. Rotundo_

    So is Tea Party Express, a cheap shitty knockoff or division of the Tea Party types? It sounds like a spinoff airline (United Express, or American Express or Jet Blue express) that is cheaper, horribly uncomfortable on those crappy little redesigned private jets that seat 100 people where 7 wealthy folks were designed to fit. Either that or a really awful take out version of a given cuisine: Mexican Express, China Express, Panda Express. It just sounds like a cheesy cut rate knockoff, and a cheesy cut rate knockoff of an astroturf turd created by the rebublicans would really have to suck out loud.

  60. BarackMyWorld

    Her Wikipedia bio says she used to be a flight attendant before joining the Tea Party. CNN sure has high standards.

    1. tessiee

      *predictable but nonetheless satisfying cheap shot on the order of, "I feel sorry for the airplane that has to lift THAT big ass off the ground"*

  61. faster_kittycat

    OK, late to the party here, but did anyone notice my AWESOME mayor looking at that teatard like she was a new and particularly disgusting species of slug? Barb knows Mayor Nutter is totally the most-ut, also, too.

    "Restore our heritage?" (tweet! woof, woof) as she sits next to a Black man.

  62. Gleem McShineys

    um, well, you know what? President Obama’s energy policy, if it’s implemented, it’s gonna cost — I mean — it’s going to cost us 7.3 million jobs by 2020!

    AND MICHAEL MOORE, HE IS FAT!

    IN CONCLUSION KENNEBUNKPORT, TELEPROMPTURZ!!!!

  63. BloviateMe

    The joke's ultimately on her…as a vaginal American, it's not like the tea baggers are going to listen to her.

    It's common knowledge that the vag brigade can't love America the way us staff bearers do.

    1. TribecaMike

      That was Representative Nydia Velazquez of NYC. I'm not a huge fan of her's — too pro-business for one thing — but her speech was a barnburner.

  64. Guppy

    I don't recall the RNC having a "Republican women of the House" segment, just putting the dual-named McMorris Rodgers on stage every five minutes.

    1. tessiee

      You know you're a fancy pants eleeeetist, when your names can go in any order and still sound the same.
      I'm looking at YOU, Walker Avery Spencer!

    1. Biff

      I take offense at this suggestion. It is more likely to snow north of I-80, and that's just a total deal-breaker for me.

  65. TribecaMike

    In his speech, Ken Salazar has mentioned vets more than the GOP did during their entire convention. And he's not even done yet.

  66. Guppy

    On the one hand, the DNC has footage of Romney saying he's pro-choice.

    On the other, the Bitterz aren't watching the DNC.

  67. tessiee

    "Mitt, well, he loves America! He has taken “companies that are failing” and turned them around"
    …and bent them over, and…

  68. rocktonsam

    when I think about the tea party my youngest daughter had with teddy ruxpin, care bear somebody and bucky badger, my heart yearns for days gone bye.

    the thought makes me feel less stabby and shouty towards the other tea party

    1. tessiee

      Ugh, my high school used to play that song at pep rallies:
      Music: Dah DAH dah..
      Crowd: HEY HEY!
      Music: Dunt da dah. Da DAH dah…
      Crowd: HEY HEY!
      etc.
      Like the jocks needed more ass kissing.

  69. LibertyLover

    I'd like to know which America does she love? Does she love the America of the Robber Barons or the America of the first Republican Depression? Does she love the economic boom times between the end of WWII and the administration of Reagan? Or does she just love the America of the pre-Civil War era?

    I wish she would elaborate.

  70. ingloriousbytch

    "Hint: it has something to do with him being “about more a global — having, uh, global, um, oh what’s the word? "

    Nigger. That's the word you're looking for.

    Or as teatards like to spell it: neger.

  71. tessiee

    Well, this isn't *quite* as bad as when Kramer said Obama ought to have a fork jabbed in his ass.

    Huh what? Different Kramer?

  72. vodkamuppet

    Just read on Balloon-Juice that the wonkette drinky thing tonight is a house party. I'm so jealous could cry.

  73. vodkamuppet

    Have I ever mentioned my desire to punch David Brooks through the face? That guy manages to be a complete asshole no matter what he's talking about.

    1. Guppy

      He could have gnawed on Judas, Cassius and Brutus on the stage and still the world would yawn.

      I mean, really. Harry Reid.

  74. mosjef

    It's not that she loves America differently. It's that she loves a different America. She loves the one where God is a white Republican, member of a country club, has no use for people of color or those who disagree with her worldview, cares not about any other country, race, or creed or sexual orientation, in short, Mitt Romney's America. Or about .05% of the total population. That's the America she loves. The rest of us can respectfully fuck off.

  75. Dashboard Buddha

    No shit you fucking troll. I love my brother and I love my fiance…but not in the same way. Jesus jumped up christ, I hate these people.

  76. spareme

    Clearly she has not closely read her Cliff Notes on the Fountain Head. Also, there are a whole lot more out there – just like her- and sadly they probably live next door to all of us.

    Watching the DNC coverage right now on MSNBC – if anyone watching has a dry eye, I'd be surprised.

  77. Negropolis

    He doesn't love America enough to cut taxes on billionaires and purposefully send jobs overseas 'cause freedom.

  78. valthemus

    Reminder: This woman is not the problem… it's all the people who hear her and nod their heads in agreement instead of responding the right way and using her foolish remarks as the springboard for a rousing snarkfest. Are we really going to allow our country to be handed over to billionaire greed-heads and conspiracy nuts by our Idiot Brothers-In-Law and Crazy Racist Uncles?

  79. ms_mcgee

    What she's trying to say is that Obama focuses too much on global unity, while Romney's shining career moment was organizing the Olympics, an event that brings the world's countries together in friendship. Totally different things, people.

  80. usuhname

    Amy Kremer loves America, in all its white marshmallowy Koch-brother funded star-spangled fascistic glory! Why can't Obama and the Liberal Media see that?

    This is definitely without any shadow of a doubt exactly what the founding fathers would of wanted! Extremist bigoted morons taking over! Just ask Amy Kremer!

  81. Incitefully_Joe

    "Look, I mean, President Obama -and I know I'm going to take a lot of heat for this- he has never run anything"

    According to wikipedia, Barack Obama has, in the past, been in charge of (either as founder, director, chairman, chief executive, or member of a board of directors) of:

    The Developing Communities Project,
    a job training program
    a college preparatory program
    a tenant's rights program
    The Harvard Law Review,
    Project Vote,
    the Woods Fund of Chicago
    the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules in the Illinois State Senate,
    the Illinois Senate's Health and Human Services Committee

    oh, and also the United States of America, for the past 3 1/2 years or so.

    But other than that, this lady's right, he's going into this election having never run anything in his life.

  82. DahBoner

    If you really love America, you want to destroy all progress made in the past century and give it back to the Robber Barons.

    Slavery, also to!

  83. Peckerwood_Pete

    If our RNC and DNC politicians loved America as much as Goldman Sachs, we'd be doing a lot better…

  84. red_kira

    Wow. I am seriously gobsmacked. That woman doesn't have the brains gawd gave a head of lettuce.

    No wonder the GOP wants to gut funding for education. Because the only folks who believe their filthy, racist swill are the deeply – and I mean DEEPLY – uneducated. Like this woman. Who is clearly dumber than a box of rocks.

  85. grex1949

    Well, that clip did clear up one question I had. Now I know the real reason why they call it a "dog whistle".

  86. Bestrides

    What she said was so completely nonsensical, even for a cable news "commentator", that a certain aura of pity descended upon the set. Ryan Lizza of the New Yorker, who was sitting to her left, spoke to her in the tone of voice one would use to assure someone that they really didn't see the ghost of Elvis flying through the air on a pink-speckled pony while wearing ass-less chaps, and that everything would be fine.
