I know it’s a bit long, but please watch this clip of Tea Party movement leader Mark Williams on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” last night.
In it, Williams sticks to his standard Tea Party talking points quite well until Cooper brings up something Williams wrote recently on his blog.
Here’s the exchange:
COOPER: What you are saying makes sense to me here when I’m hearing what you say but then I read on your blog, you say, you call the President, an Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug and a racist in chief.
WILLIAMS: Yeah, that’s the way he’s behaving.
Watch the clip to see Cooper’s reaction, and the reaction of presidential advisor (to Presidents Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Clinton) David Gergen. And then, watch as Williams shovels himself in even deeper.
From the mouth of its leader, this is what the Tea Party movement stands for.
Conservatives, are you listening?
