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?
