Tea Parties Take Credit For Obama’s Electoral Victories

sandwitch shopFour New Jersey Tea Party groups and a Southern California Tea Party group joined forces today in warning national Republicans not to nominate a moderate for president in 2016.  In their joint statement released this morning, the Bayshore Tea Party Group, the East Jersey Tea Party Group, the NJ TEA Party Caucus and the Ventura County Tea Party from California claimed credit for the 2008 and 2012 electoral victories on President Barack Obama and promised more of the same if a moderate or liberal Republican is nominated in 2016.

In the event a moderate or liberal republican is nominated by the GOP in 2016, the Tea Party groups that joined together in this statement, have pledged to refuse any support for that nominee and urge all concerned Americans who believe in liberty, prosperity, smaller government and fiscal responsibility, to join them in their action. Other groups throughout the nation are expected to join within the weeks and months to come.

A moderate Republican will result in the continuation of lower Conservative Republican voter turnout that began in the late 1990’s and was a significant contributor to Republican Presidential loses in 2008 and 2012.

Bayshore Tea Party Group Co-founder Barbara Gonzalez said the groups have polled their members and found that the majority will not support a Republican nominee who does not pass their litmus tests. “These preliminary results indicate that we will NO LONGER accept an RNC ‘anointed’ candidate who, more than likely, will be a moderate republican”, said Gonzalez. “It is time for the GOP to choose a candidate who reflects the values and core principles that were once that of the Republican party, and propelled Ronald Reagan to landslide victories in 1980 and 1984 – namely: smaller government, lower taxes and respect for the rule of Constitutional law”.

RoseAnn Salanitri, President of the NJ TEA Party Caucus released a list of possible presidential candidates the groups have agreed to vet and threatened to withdraw support if the candidates don’t toe the line. “The candidates, such as the ones listed below, will be properly vetted,” Salanitri said, “We reserve the right to withdraw our support if any inappropriate or unacceptable attributes are discovered as the vetting process proceeds”.

The results of our preliminary polling resulted in this list of candidates, selected by the membership of the participating Tea Party groups. The groups intend to release future notices of additional polling, along with the respective voting percentages as they are completed and tabulated.

In other news, Skip Ross, owner of The Sand Witch Shop in Highlands, said he likes Senator Rand Paul for president in 2016 if Obama doesn’t pull a Bloomberg and run for a third term.

    their heads in shame!

    Claiming “credit” for electing Barry Hussein Obama shows just how stupid they are.

    By helping elect this socialist, they have shown their true colors, and it does not consist of red, white and blue.

    So I guess they love Obama or they are insane because the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over again and expect a different result.

    Most of the candidates mentioned lose in a landslide to Hillary and in a couple of cases might not win a state.

    Exceptions are Martinez who could have a future at the national level but I doubt its in 2016 (with the exception of possible VP choice.)

    I thought Huckabee was a decent candidate in 2008 primaries but I don’t see how he can win a national election being so far to the right. Walker might be better off waiting.

    This is just another failed attempt by the BSTPG to stay relevant.

    And the threat of “with held support” from the BSTPG is a joke since sadly, there is no leadership or enough members to “change the proverbial light bulb,” well enough to mean anything.

    Change out the leadership of the BSTPG first, and then maybe we’ll see some relevance.

    Sorry Art, I’m all about free speech and don’t mind you posting on my Fb Page but the headline is not factual and is designed to make people think these were the words and sentiment of the Tea Party. Therefore I regret, being a man of honesty, I have to delete it.

    Excuse me for not reading any of the posts and replying back to them. I do this for two reasons. First, I know that I’m one of the more colorful posters in here and can make the conversation popular. I’m no longer interested in enabling.
    As well, I see no reason in trying to make sense to most of your sheeple following. They for the most part have the same mentality as those known as Progressives.

    SO, Political Pony is a coward and refuses to put his antagonistic & demeaning past (note the use of the word sheeple) behind him; and refuses to debate with facts.

    Yep, we got that long ago.

    But, that he can not make sense of COMMON sense really should scare all of you so called “sheeple”

    The Tea Parties are back!! We’re here, we’re mad as hell, and we’re not going to take it anymore!! Chris Christie was never one of us, he just pretended to be so he could beat a a real Conservative like Steve Lonegan in the 2009 primary. Since then taxes are up, spending is up, and Democrats control the Legislature because Christie spent more time pandering and catering to Democrat bosses and Wall Street financiers than he did campaigning for Conservatives in the last election. That’s why he got only 8% of the vote at CPAC.

    We don’t have to wait for 2016 to start changing things. We have three Constitutionally Certified and Tea Party Approved candidates for US Senate in Dr. “Maverick Murray” Sabrin, Rich Pezzullo, and Jeff Bell. With active support from all segments of the GOP any one of them will beat Cory Booker. Ubfortunately we still need somebody in the third district. If it becomes too late to file for the primary, then maybe Rich Pezzullo, if he is not nominated for US Senate, or some other potential candidate like Leigh Ann Bellew, Anna Little or Gene Hoyas, can run against Frank Pallone as an independent Conservative.

    You are absolutely insane. The names mentioned will not even get 20 percent of the vote in any state. Please go away the Dems love you and you guarantee another liberal victory. The is no way an independant is going to vote for any of those mentioned.

    You think you are so smart. You have no idea of how to WIN an election. D’s and R’s dont elect the president. INDEPENDANTS do with some crossover from the other parties. This will never happen with this lot.

    Why don’t you teaparty types concentrate on getting your candidates elected for the house and senate. Oh yeah, you cant even do that.

    Thanks again for screwing it up and snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

    You silly puppy. Do you even bother to take a short break from your delusional happenings to look at what you write, or is that you can not even comprehend what you have ruminated?

    Nominating petitions for Independent candidates are due the day of the primary at 4pm.

    Since the polls close at 9 PM, 5 hours afterwards, how is Rich Pezzulo supposed to know if he should file the petition before he knows if he lost the nomination ???

    Господа, вы не работают на прошлой неделе чем кусок камня. Не задаться вопросом, почему BSTPG теряет с помощью гаек как и вы. Перейти играть с вашим гайки.

    Babs can take credit for Booker win too.
    She doesn’t know what a conservative is, and therefore loses all credibility.

    […] Tea Parties boast that they stayed home in 2012 rather than voting for Romney, thereby assuring Obama’s reelection.  There are some Tea Parties campaigning for conservatives to withhold their votes in 2016 if the GOP does not nominate a candidate that meets their approval. […]
