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

by Kris E. Benson

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.

Amy Kremer likes doughnuts more than we do, too.

Zango Crudmonger September 4, 2012 at 7:24 pm

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.

Oh, YEAH?? Not FETUS donuts!!

HELisforHEL September 5, 2012 at 8:50 am

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.

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

His love is pure and unadulterated.

miss_grundy September 4, 2012 at 7:23 pm

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.

HELisforHEL September 5, 2012 at 8:57 am

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).

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…

ibwilliamsi September 5, 2012 at 10:01 am

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?

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.

Monsieur_Grumpe September 4, 2012 at 6:30 pm

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.

RadioBowels September 4, 2012 at 6:58 pm

No apology needed M_G. That comment was FTW.

HELisforHEL September 5, 2012 at 9:07 am

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!

Monsieur_Grumpe September 5, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Yeah it was NPR. They should asked her what she meant by "look" even though it was obvious.

It's not that Barry doesn't loves America, it's just that Teabaggers can't handle that kind of love.

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.

nounverb911 September 4, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Bush? Wasn't he the one that was in business with the bin Laden's

comrad_darkness September 4, 2012 at 8:01 pm

That was Reagan. He provided the start up funds. And arms.

actor212 September 4, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Washington exported tobacco and whiskey.

Which is why he may be my favorite President ever. Oh. And hemp.

Deffo my fave.

MosesInvests September 4, 2012 at 6:48 pm

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

LibertyLover September 4, 2012 at 5:28 pm

And Hoover….he was a great businessman,too. I heard that he was great for the country, too.

BerkeleyBear September 4, 2012 at 6:53 pm

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).

RadioBowels September 4, 2012 at 7:01 pm

♫ ♬ Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again…♫ ♬

Angry_Marmot September 4, 2012 at 8:11 pm

Poor bastard got left holding the mess Harding and Coolidge enabled.

LibertyLover September 4, 2012 at 8:56 pm

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."

RadioBowels September 4, 2012 at 7:04 pm

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.

tessiee September 4, 2012 at 7:49 pm

"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.

DemmeFatale September 4, 2012 at 8:01 pm

I would think that having Dubya as pres. would have shot that whole "businessman as president" thing to hell. Guess I was wrong.

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.

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.

Doktor Zoom September 4, 2012 at 4:55 pm

"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?"

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.

PsycWench September 5, 2012 at 9:04 am

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.

grex1949 September 5, 2012 at 1:25 pm

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.

Dr_Zoidberg September 4, 2012 at 4:55 pm

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!

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.

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

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.

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."

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.

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."

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…….

Badonkadonkette September 4, 2012 at 5:08 pm

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.

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

JustPixelz September 4, 2012 at 5:09 pm

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.

hagajim September 4, 2012 at 5:34 pm

You can pretty much thank Newtie for that. He's the man who started all this bullshit propaganda.

Baconzgood September 4, 2012 at 6:21 pm

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.

Barrelhse September 4, 2012 at 7:03 pm

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.

tessiee September 4, 2012 at 8:38 pm

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.

DemmeFatale September 4, 2012 at 9:36 pm

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*

Veritas78 September 4, 2012 at 7:37 pm

You porked a caddy in the stables? Golf has changed for the better, I guess.

JackObin September 4, 2012 at 5:49 pm

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

Tundra Grifter September 4, 2012 at 5:50 pm

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

tigernole September 4, 2012 at 5:52 pm

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

Weenus299 September 4, 2012 at 5:53 pm

I never thought bludgeoning a baby seal would give me pleasure, but there it was.

DerrickWildcat September 4, 2012 at 5:57 pm

C'mon, giver her a break. She's not very good with numbers and a bunch of other stuff.

Gleem McShineys September 4, 2012 at 6:37 pm

Not very good with numbers + Not very good with words =
Tea Party Express Chairperson

Sharkey September 4, 2012 at 7:55 pm

It would appear that she's good with CNN, though.

Guppy September 4, 2012 at 6:04 pm

And the DNC is chanting "U S A!" to the prospect of taxing the rich.

I need to lie down.

SpiderCrab September 4, 2012 at 6:07 pm

Amazing! The Tea Party has taught a pig rudimentary language skills!

mustangsavvy September 4, 2012 at 6:09 pm

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?"

ManchuCandidate September 4, 2012 at 6:12 pm

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.

Angry_Marmot September 4, 2012 at 8:24 pm

Mongo only pawn in Game of Life.

tessiee September 4, 2012 at 9:03 pm

"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.

AncienReggie September 4, 2012 at 6:13 pm

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.

Baconzgood September 4, 2012 at 6:16 pm

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

DocChaos September 4, 2012 at 6:19 pm

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.

Chet Kincaid_ September 4, 2012 at 6:28 pm

De-grammarize it, and you have you-know-who!

DocChaos September 4, 2012 at 7:47 pm

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.

Kid_Charlemagne September 4, 2012 at 6:22 pm

I always try to ignore this stuff, but somebody really needs punched in the face.

tessiee September 4, 2012 at 9:04 pm

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!

Pat_Pending September 4, 2012 at 6:27 pm

Is she the Teabag version of The Best and the Brightest?

Baconzgood September 4, 2012 at 6:30 pm

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.

tessiee September 4, 2012 at 9:06 pm

"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.

Rotundo_ September 4, 2012 at 6:31 pm

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.

BarackMyWorld September 4, 2012 at 6:34 pm

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

M. Bouffant September 4, 2012 at 6:49 pm

Stewardess libel!

GeorgiaBurning September 4, 2012 at 7:24 pm

United Express?

tessiee September 4, 2012 at 9:07 pm

No more equal time for opposing viewpoints.
We have Uncle Raygun to thank for that, too.

faster_kittycat September 4, 2012 at 6:42 pm

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.

Gleem McShineys September 4, 2012 at 6:48 pm

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!!!!

BloviateMe September 4, 2012 at 6:51 pm

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.

Arborista September 4, 2012 at 6:52 pm

Holy cow! The Puerto Rican speaker at the convention- I missed her name- was fucking awesome!

TribecaMike September 4, 2012 at 7:01 pm

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.

Arborista September 4, 2012 at 8:12 pm

Thank you- obviously not too familiar with her, but the speech really was amazing.

Arborista September 4, 2012 at 6:59 pm

Assuming that we get a Live Blog ce soir, which words are our recommended drinking cues?

proudgrampa September 4, 2012 at 7:03 pm

I vote for any mention of "Obama!"

Guppy September 4, 2012 at 7:10 pm

"Detroit."

CommieLibunatic September 4, 2012 at 7:04 pm

So, what? Obama's a horrible president because he's a good international neighbor?

Sociopath.

Guppy September 4, 2012 at 7:19 pm

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.

tessiee September 4, 2012 at 9:10 pm

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!

Guppy September 4, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Once again, there's a blonde in a red dress on my TV, going on about how much she loves women.

Angry_Marmot September 4, 2012 at 8:26 pm

I get that channel too, but only after 10 o'clock.

gogogodzilla September 4, 2012 at 7:34 pm

I say we divide up the country. We keep the coasts and major cities north of I-80. Teahadistan can have everything else.

IonaTrailer September 4, 2012 at 7:35 pm

Except Santa Fe. (Maybe we can trade North Dakota for Taos/Santa Fe?)

gogogodzilla September 4, 2012 at 7:51 pm

I can work with that.

TribecaMike September 4, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Not if the UN takes over Teahadistan first.

Biff September 4, 2012 at 8:08 pm

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.

Guppy September 4, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Is it just me, or is Ken Salazar's voice physically painful to listen to?

TribecaMike September 4, 2012 at 7:43 pm

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

Guppy September 4, 2012 at 7:44 pm

A Kennedy! Drink!

(Too soon?)

TribecaMike September 4, 2012 at 7:46 pm

And talking about Mariachi music! Slainte Salute!

Guppy September 4, 2012 at 7:51 pm

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.

DNC Tweets on C-SPAN are less entertaining than the RNC. Needz moar Ron Paul!

TribecaMike September 4, 2012 at 7:59 pm

On PBS, Corey Booker is trying to talk but being drowned out by the singer onstage.

rocktonsam September 4, 2012 at 7:59 pm

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

tessiee September 4, 2012 at 9:11 pm

Nowadays the tea party needz less bucky badger and moar honey badger.

Guppy September 4, 2012 at 8:02 pm

That's funny, I would have figured playing Gary Glitter would be more a GOP family value.

tessiee September 4, 2012 at 9:13 pm

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.

Guppy September 4, 2012 at 8:03 pm

The crowd doesn't sound all that impressed with Wexler's Netanyahu handjob.

LibertyLover September 4, 2012 at 8:07 pm

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.

Guppy September 4, 2012 at 8:07 pm

Now is the time to stand with Israel as they colonize the West Bank! Oh, wait…

ingloriousbytch September 4, 2012 at 8:17 pm

Huh what? Different Kramer?

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

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.

tessiee September 4, 2012 at 9:15 pm

Was David Brooks in the video, or was your comment more of a general observation?

GOOD GOD….according to Huffpo frontpage, Harry Reid revealed himself as Satan at the DNC.

Guppy September 4, 2012 at 9:33 pm

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

I mean, really. Harry Reid.

mosjef September 4, 2012 at 9:03 pm

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.

Dashboard Buddha September 4, 2012 at 9:04 pm

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.

spareme September 4, 2012 at 10:35 pm

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.

Troubledog September 4, 2012 at 10:42 pm

It's funnier because she's fat.

Troubledog September 4, 2012 at 10:46 pm

omg I watched the clip. how does she get to be on TV? she's really dumb.

Troubledog September 4, 2012 at 10:47 pm

and who is the guy in the glasses that is patiently explaining everything to the dumb lady.

RadioBowels September 4, 2012 at 10:49 pm

valthemus September 5, 2012 at 12:59 am

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?

ms_mcgee September 5, 2012 at 2:48 am

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.

usuhname September 5, 2012 at 3:55 am

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!

Incitefully_Joe September 5, 2012 at 8:19 am

"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.

DahBoner September 5, 2012 at 9:19 am

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!

Peckerwood_Pete September 5, 2012 at 9:25 am

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

red_kira September 5, 2012 at 10:20 am

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.

ttommyunger September 5, 2012 at 11:15 am

In case you were wondering why CNN gets no journalistic creds nowadays.

"I'm not very good with numbers" she says, but I'll bet she's a fucking artist with cheeseburgers.

grex1949 September 5, 2012 at 1:15 pm

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

Bestrides September 7, 2012 at 10:08 pm

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.

Baconzgood September 4, 2012 at 6:49 pm

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.

Lascauxcaveman September 4, 2012 at 7:48 pm

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.

DemmeFatale September 4, 2012 at 8:19 pm

I will never forgive Bob Costas for blathering above Mike Oldfield at the Olympic opening ceremony.
