I’ll admit. I was a bit skeptical of how these Tea Parties were going to turn out. Afterall, us conservatives aren’t exactly known for picketing/protesting/smelling like hippie.
But it seems turnout at these events has been much higher than expected. The coverage on Fox has been constant, and even though CNN has been their usual snarky douchebag selves, they’ve still covered the protests, and that’s a positive for the movement. It lends the movement credibility, and makes it more difficult to be considered a fringe protest.
The problem with these events has been branding. Rick Santelli from CNBC inspired round two of the ‘tea party’ name , but it has enabled the left and the MSM to think it’s all about taxes, and in turn, build their talking points around it. I think we can all agree first and foremost, this is about out of control spending and a renewed need for fiscal responsibility.
But what’s vital at this point is the ‘what now…’
What do we start working on tomorrow?
