Herman Cain Delivers Tea Party Response to SOTU TONIGHT!

Washington, D.C. – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest tea party political action committee, is teaming up with Herman Cain who will deliver the Tea Party response to the State of the Union Address tonight. The response is being held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., immediately following the GOP response.

Amy Kremer, Chairman of the Tea Party Express, said, “It is unfortunate that without even hearing the President’s State of the Union Address, we already know what to expect: more grand spending plans, a demonization of capitalism and job creators, and why he is not responsible for the lethargic state of our economy.

“In 2010 Americans clearly stated their objection to the out-of-control size, cost, and intrusiveness of the federal government. Unfortunately, instead of taking on the challenge, President Obama has turned every opportunity to address the nation into campaign stump speech.

“Americans are tired of the big talk, empty promises, and blatant arrogance coming out of Washington. That is why Tea Party Express decided to go outside the beltway this year and have Herman Cain deliver the Tea Party response. As someone that has created jobs and thoroughly understands the issues that face our nation, Mr. Cain will provide a candid assessment of the state of our nation, while putting forth the bold solutions Americans demanded overwhelmingly during the Midterm elections.

“We are happy to see that the GOP has picked Tea Party conservative and successful Governor Mitch Daniels to give their response. America is looking for leadership and Gov. Daniels has done a remarkable job providing just that in Indiana,” Kremer concluded.

The Tea Party response will be streaming live at www.TeaPartyExpress.org and will last approximately 7 minutes.
