New York, New York April 29th, 2009 - The National Leadership Team of the Nationwide Tea Party Coalition (http://www.nationwideteapartycoalition.com) today accepted President Obama`s invitation "to have a serious conversation about how we are going to cut our health care costs down over the long term, how we are going to stabilize Social Security.
The invitation was extended by the President at a Town Hall Meeting held in Arnold, Missouri today (http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0409/21870.html). Michael Patrick Leahy, a member of the National Leadership Team of the Nationwide Tea Party Coalition, said " We want to broaden the scope to address the President`s runaway march to socialist-statism, and the rampant across the board irresponsible spending he is promoting with his $787 Billion Stimulus Plan and his $1 Trillion Annual Deficit, his takeover of General Motors, Chrysler and the Banks ."
Kellen Giuda, organizer of the New York City Tea party attended by 12,000 and of Parcbench (http://www.parcbench.com) said, I think a constructive dialogue with the President would be a great opportunity for him to acknowledge that, yes, many Americans have a problem with the way Washington is handling our taxpayer dollars and also that we are concerned about health care and social security reform. I am happy he is open to a discussion. The Tea Parties are protesting against fiscal irresponsibility and any dialogue we can have will hopefully bring a better public understanding of our country`s finances. Health care and social security reform is a large concern to us."
The National Leadership Team of the Nationwide Tea Party Coalition includes 25 of the more than 900 local organizers of the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Parties held across the country, which were attended by more than 1 million Americans. Members of the National Leadership Team includes Judson Phillips, organizer of the Nashville Tea Party attended by 10,000, James Dickey, organizer of the Dallas Tea Party, attended by 5,000, and JoAnn Abbot, organizer of the Washington, DC Tea Party attended by more than 3,000.

You won’t catch me criticizing grammar, spelling or hanging html codes. :-)
Bitch a little, do even less.
Let it go...and tell us about the leaders.
Did you? I missed it. I’ll go check my front door for bullet holes. ;^)
You missed. I didn’t find any. lol
Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is a subsidiary of ACORN?
Or something...didn't know there was one..
The fact is that there will be no meeting, and there never was going to be a meeting.We knew that Obama wouldn't meet with us when we sent the letter. The purpose was to show that he is a liar and that when he said he wished the tea party people would meet with him and come up with ideas on how to solve the health care problems and social security problems, he was bluffing. We decided to call his bluff. Now we have his recorded statement that he wished we would contact him. We accepted his invitation in writing. He will not respond and we can use that in the future.Thanks The Spirit of Allegiance.
Doc. I know you scroll up-thread. You're a legend on FR....
Tell us what you think mate.
Don’t understand you’re “drive by” comment. Didn’t see it.
They will stoop to no ends to discredit all of us with this. This group will be groupies of the ONE, they will be a faux tea party. They will have the ability to sound like us, and from this point they will be the only ones the ONE will listen to. I think I am going to be sick, er.
And the media sure tried their darndest didn’t they?!?!

Thanks for the PING, Spirit! Never doubted you....but I am rather surprised at how many seem to defend the party. Perhaps they have not been involved in the political side or seen how the party leadership has methodically destroyed the ultra-conservatives of the party whom they “set-up” as “mock” candidates. :;shrug:: Takes some people longer, I guess.
