Sam Donaldson Speaks for Minorities: ‘It’s OUR Country Now!’

Long-time ABC News correspondent Sam Donaldson has a message for “The Tea Party.” He wants them to know it isn’t their country anymore.

That is what he said on the Chris Matthews Sunday Show on December 23, anyway. Not only did Donaldson tell “The Tea Party” that they should be gotten “rid of,” but it appeared that he was deigning to speak for minorities on top of it. Yes, an old white guy presuming to speak for minorities.

The minorities re-elected president Obama, but I’m going with Katty. It’s the Tea Party and thinking of the Tea Party and people like that that are driving the Republicans out of contention as a national party. You cannot win nationally if you don’t know something about the way the country’s changed, and the Tea Party seems to think the country can go back 25 or 30 years. The greatest slogan that I hated during this last campaign was “We want to take back our country.” Guys, it’s not your country anymore – it’s our country and you’re part of it, but that thinking is going to defeat Republicans nationally if they don’t get rid of it.

So, to recap: Tea Partiers should stop imagining it is their country because it is the minorities’ country and Tea Partiers should be gotten rid of. Isn’t it great when “reporters” don’t pick sides and just report the news?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years, America.

Donaldson was last in the news for having been arrested for drunk driving in Delaware. Maybe he was still drunk at the taping of the Matthews show?

    Some old tune from the left: “You have to be more like us.”


    Yes, it may well be that the Tea Party is completely out-of-step with the rest of the country, that Tea Partiers are a bunch of old fudds whose values went out with, if not the horse and buggy, then at least tailfins and poodle skirts. This is something for elections to decide.

    For myself, I think that the left (and many in the GOP) fear the Tea Party NOT because they are old fashioned, but because they are the first heralds of the end of the Era of (Unaffordable, Ruinous) Big Government. It’s just such a buzzkill to have to listen to people point out that we’re going bankrupt; why can’t they just be quiet and let us Make People Pay Their Fair Share(TM) in peace???

    Sam – it IS our country – we want to return to the policies that worked for America – and not accept the Obama policies that failed to save European countries …..How many times does history have to be repeated until you GET IT????
