Former 2008 GOP Presidential Candidate Tancredo Opens Tea Party Convention



Former Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-Co) opened the first Tea Party Convention in Nashville with a slam against immigrants and the President of the United States.

He made the following statement at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center (from CNN.com)....

The former congressman from Colorado and 2008 Republican presidential candidate blasted President Obama, saying "people who could not even spell the word 'vote', or say it in English, put a committed socialist ideologue in the White House. His name is Barack Hussein Obama."

This isn't the first time this blog has spoken about the super patriotic Nativist Tancredo. Last year Tancredo stormed off the set while being a guest on MSNBC. Tancredo claimed to be insulted by DAILY KOS founder Markos Moulitsas on the show when Moulitsas mentioned that Tancredo asked for and received a draft deferrment during the Vietnam War. Tancredo was a Republican student activist who supported the war but did not serve because he told doctors he'd been treated for depression and received a "1-Y" draft deferment.

A few years ago Mr. Tancredo had this solution to ending the threat of terrorists attacks in the United States by Muslim extremists....bomb the Muslim Holy Cities of Mecca and Medina.



In the interest of full disclosure, I did serve in the military during the final two years of the Vietnam War. Also, I will tell you that while I served I did not see combat. That being said, I wouldn't mind Tom Tancredo and his draft deferment if he wasn't then, as he is now, such a pathetic hypocrite.

Another conservative Chicken Hawk, a cheerleader for others to risk their lives, kill or be killed....just as long as it isn't his sorry ass on the line.

With people like Mr. Tancredo, and the former Governor of Alaska as their shining stars, the Tea Bag Party are following the footsteps of another movement in American history.

The No-Nothings.
