Excerpt from a Reddit posted Demelle blog post regarding the true origins of the Teaparty movement:
"...Finally, this report might serve as a wake-up call to some people in the Tea Party itself, who would find it a little disturbing that the "grassroots" movement they are so emotionally attached to, is in fact a pawn created by billionaires and large corporations with little interest in fighting for the rights of the common person, but instead using the common person to fight for their own unfettered profits. .."

Please note: Obama has tried to compromise with the Republican politicians and they have stonewalled his programs to improve our country at every opportunity - and they lie and distort the programs he has been able to get implemented. They are hypocrites and liars and can't be anything else because if they told the truth about who they really represent they would have to admit that they don't care about anyone who doesn't make at least $1,000,000 a year. They don't care about old people on social security/Medicare, they don't care about the working poor, they don't care about the middle class except as a source of tax funds they can give back to the rich in tax reductions - they don't care about YOU.
