The first I heard of the Tea Party was in February, 2009. My daughter and I drove by a rather large group holding signs in Ridgefield, Ct...and there were people with tea bags hanging from hats and dressed in Colonial costumes. They were protesting the bail-out (TARP) and the newly proposed cash for clunkers. I doubt Obama had been in office for three weeks at the time. An article in the local paper stated that it was the groups second protest that had a larger than expected turnout.<quoted text>You are correct of course...tea party has been around, ever since President Obama's inauguration, but you don't suppose there is a connectio.....Wait....What?
While they were unhappy with the government handing out tax payer dollars to save businesses, TARP was Bush, not Obama.
