Re: How Is Anyone Surprised? The tea party people have been around for a while in various forms. The reason you haven't heard much coverage of them is that the solution to the tax problem makes almost no one happy and thus isn't news friendly. What has changed is the massive upward shift in debt/GDP ratio which has made many of these people significantly louder.
I was going to go to the one in Erie, but I'm not entirely comfortable with the fact that it's been organized by the local republican party, which I don't think is entirely appropriate.
There are, as with any movement, a lot of hangers on that do just as you say, but that's with any movement. I think you'd be surprised to find just how many Obama supporters lost interest on Nov. 3rd and now really have no clue whats going on beyond the Obamessiah poster they hung in the window back in September.
Come let us reason together.
