14 September 2009 TEA Partiers are Charming Tourists
It’s easy and perhaps even sensible to view TEA Partiers as psychotics untethered to reality and addicted to conspiracy, on TV. But the TEA Partiers I’ve met on Capitol Hill this weekend charming tourists, frustrated by the “broken system” of government. They do not hate Obama.
The same I’m told is true of the St. Louis TEA Party earlier this year. Our government is out of control was the event’s central premise, I’m told. Alas, a position Tea Partiers and Progressives share.
