Disgraced Ex-Tea Party Leader Promises To 'Infiltrate And Sabotage' Obama 2012
Former Tea Party Express spokesman Mark Williams, who stepped down from the group after making a series of racist remarks, has a plan to "infiltrate and sabotage" the Obama campaign by volunteering as a campaign worker.

In an interview with TPM, Williams could not specify what exactly his subterfuge would entail, but said it would probably "come under the general heading of 'not exactly representing him in a fine light.'"

In a blog post called "Take Down Obama from the Inside" , Williams compared his plan to everything from the Trojan Horse, to a prankster's "Crash The Tea Party" campaign (which he falsely attributed to the SEIU), to a storyline on 1980s TV show Dallas. "While many variations have evolved," he wrote, "the basic idea remains the same; infiltrate and sabotage."

"It is the duty of every American Citizen to do everything within their power to disrupt and defeat the domestic enemy that currently occupies the corridors of power in Washington and a dangerous number of state capitols," Williams continued.

1. Meh - Rahm beat him to it. There is nothing he can do to Obama
without Obama's permission.

2. Does that mean it's ok for the teabagger to infiltrate?

3. So you're saying Rahm=teabagger? If so,
you're as bad as the teabaggers.

4. I think she's saying Rahm already sabotaged Obama's chances of reelection.
While I think it's more accurate to say that Obama sabotaged his own chances.

11. No he didn't. But s/he DID say Rahm "beat him to it." That's a pretty strong charge,
and it's nowhere NEAR comparable. Like it or not, it'll be the "Independents" that Obama needs to get back. And YOU'RE wrong, too.

5. Oh the drama...
get a grip and read what I said because really coming to DU shouldn't have to be this dramatic for either of us.

12. OK-I re-read it and it doesn't make any sense, implying Obama WANTS to have his
campaign infiltrated by a teabagger (or someone who will move him to the right, which is not what the teabagger's goal in the OP is). So what WAS the point of throwing Rahm in there since he didn't try to "infiltrate and destroy" Obama's chances?

7. Rahm was DLC -- funded by Koch Bros. -- in the White House with Obama...
and then bragging about how well they did for business --

including PRESERVING PRIVATE HEALTH CARE INDUSTRY!!



Rahm .... crowing about preserving "private health care industry" ... business s/b grateful!
DU 8/12/10


In a Thursday interview, White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel argued that rather than recoiling against Obama, business leaders should be grateful for his support on at least a half-dozen counts: his advocacy of greater international trade and education reform open markets despite union skepticism; his rejection of calls from some quarters to nationalize banks during the financial meltdown; the rescue of the automobile industry; the fact that the overhaul of health care

preserved the private delivery system;

the fact that billions in the stimulus package benefited business with lucrative new contracts, and that financial regulation reform will take away the uncertainty that existed with a broken, pre-crash regulatory apparatus.

10. Is there a point to that?
What Rahm said in regards to business leaders was correct.

If you thought that private health care delivery in this country was going to eliminated overnight by any health car reform, you are only deluding yourself.

Rahm understands pragmatic political reality, unlike many here.

14. Nice Fox News tactic you did there.
You are continuing to put Koch/DLC/Rahm/Anyone Not A Marxist in the same boat.

Koch brothers also donate to PBS.

9. Yes, the GOP = 'the domestic enemy in...power in Washington and...state capitols.'
He said it. Just has the wrong party in mind.
