To be very honest I heard virtual silence when it came to Bush II and his spending and TARPING and using APITAL I card to pay for the IRAQIAN WAR.


    If "the chemicals were there already" there sure as hell were very very secure in a hermitically sealed glass jar.
    Well if I remember correctly the Tea Parties started with Ron Paul and his Campaign for Liberty during the Bush Administration and picked up speed after President Obama was elected, the Stimulus Package, and when Fox News got wind of it.

    As for what I saw, it was more or less the same. People were pissed about spending. And it was funny after reading the article it didn't seem to me like that many people were chanting for Palin. I mean there was a majority doing it, but it wasn't by much.

    There were still your typical birther and racist idiots, although there weren't nearly as many as I remember seeing at the few I went to in SC. But I imagine it was because there were a lot more people here in Boston than in the SC ones so it wasn't as obvious. There seemed to be a good number of people upset over the fact Senator Brown didn't show up because a lot of people wanted to hear him speak. I would say out of the 100 or so people I talked to 60 or 70 were there to listen to him. I think that goes to show still how well liked he is here in Boston and that at least this Tea Party was more moderate than those I had been to in the past.

    Also, while there was a lot of people there, the numbers were probably not as big as some are going to say they were. There were a good number of college students from different school newspapers to report on the event. There were also a lot of kids there to see if Palin showed up to be Palin again. Also there were a lot there just to see what it was about or why there were a large gathering of people in the Commons. I will say to many college students, including myself, we see these Tea Parties as now an arm of Fox News and Beck and Palin and it is a major turn off to us.

    Ohhhh.... this just shocks me.
    Palin, asking to fight Obama. Yeah..... she is SUCH a mavrick. She isnt a Tea Party member. She is a member of teh GOP. Thats all the GOP wants is to have that loud-mouthed money-whore to defeat the Democrats. Palin could care less about the Tea Party and what it used to stand for. She is just a republican puppet.

    Re: Palin Tells Tea Party Rally in Boston to Fight Obama

    You have stirred my memory I remember some form of protest or spin off group that Ron Paul and his campaign started but I did not recall the Tea Party name. You know maybe it was because FAUX News with palooka’s like Shaun Vanity for whom understanding basic points about ideology would be like asking a Neanderthal to program in ancient COBAL, did not like Ron Paul so they did not jump on that bandwagon. Instead they co-opted . If Ron Paul was running tea partying there wouldn’t be that bumper sticky schmaltz and Alaskan whale vomit that the Palin spews out.

As much as I think Obama was a big mistake, there's a part of me that knows this is what we needed to wake some people up to reality.
    good links !!! Ron Paul did start a Tea movement but he did not call it that. As I stated in another thread if Ron Paul would never allow the birthers, rascist, ans other perverted tpes to be in his movement.

    Palin was still normal Palin. And after talking to a fair number of them it makes me sad to learn they only started supporting the Tea Parties after Obama was elected.
    Um.....the tea parties weren't around before he was elected, so how could they support them then?

    It wasn't called the Tea Parties when Ron Paul started it, but the concept and the movement began with him before President Obama was elected. After his election it turned into what we now know as the Tea Parties.

    Movements start out as a generally disorganized and unconnected group of people. As word spreads and people talk, a movement takes on a "form". From what I remember, the tea party movement was about government spending, and also, if I remember correctly, their first official rally was last Apr 15, coincidentally tax day- basically a tax protest.
    Time frame: Bush- TARP bailouts. Election- people were fed up with big government spending and voted for "change". Obama- Stimulus bill, takeover of GM and Chrysler. Thus the tea party was born. Think of the Bush administration as the conception of a baby in utero, and the Obama administration as the delivered baby.

    Palin and the TP's are "Taking advantage of acute economic distress and fears of a communist take over,"

    The TP's did march and will march on Washington " Mussolini led his supporters in a march on Rome, a demonstration of strength and popular support. "

    Isn't the TP's hatred and blame of Obama for faux socialism ort of like Hitler's blamin the Jews for the economic disater that Germany was is .!!

    Just asking and we can play the flip side of the "socialist thing ".
    Whoa!! Everybody here knows how I feel about the tea parties, but if you are going to compare them to Hitler, you are no better than those who compare Obama to him. But, I also remember a lot of people on the left who made the Bush-Hitler comparison, so your post does not surprise me that much.

    What I and some others were comparing was some similiarities in tactics such as blame game, demonization, claiming that they are somehow the true patriots.
