@lori43 – What you have just doesn’t make any sense. You’re right about what the Tea Party Movement is protesting, i.e. the bailouts and healthcare reform, but they blame the 2008 bailout on Obama and his administration. He didn’t take office until January 2009. Do you see why I think this movement comes off as comically ignorant? And you’re actually wrong about the Tea Party not being “as biased as left-wingers make it out to be”. In fact, the Tea Party is run by a conservative political action committee called Our Country Deserves Better. Not biased against the left? That’s just stupid. The whole movement exists to fight this perceived notion that the left is taking over the country with plans to sabotage it. Its sole purpose is to continue and maintain the conservative status quo of the 2000’s without taking other, newer ideas into account.
