All 535 members of Congress, Republicans and Democrats, need to watch this video. The Tea Party movement is not just about Obama, as the media wants you to think. It’s not about being upset that a Democrat won or that a black Democrat won. It’s about the rampant corruption and lack of principle that our national leaders have shown over the past 25 years. If someone can watch this and not understand that a “throw the rascals out” mentality has taken hold, then they don’t understand America.
Keep in mind, this guy is a once-popular Republican desperately trying to explain that he’s a conservative, despite his support of TARP and all the bailouts. Too late, congressmen. I think you know your days are numbered.
UPDATE: Another example of the fading power of incumbency. People just aren’t impressed anymore:
The highlight of the event in Birmingham was Beth Chapman, our Secretary of State.
Unbeknowst to most people, she showed up unannounced at the back of the stage and demanded to speak. Apparently she wasnâ€™t there when I announced that no elected officials would be speaking and that at this rally politicians would listen to we the people.
As a matter of fact, she wasnâ€™t there when the Rainy Day Patriots (25 in number) stood on 280 in the middle of a tornado warning with their protest signs. She wasnâ€™t there during our organizational meetings. She wasnâ€™t there during setup of the event. And she certainly wasnâ€™t there during cleanup.
Needless to say, she wasnâ€™t a very happy camper when she was told â€œNOâ€. I guess politicians are not used to being told no because she lingered for another 30 minutes quibling for a speaking spot.
It was a great day in Alabama when a group of citizens can grow their numbers from 25 to 7000 in a couple of weeks and tell our politicians â€œNO!â€
