The Mississippi Democratic Party has posted this attack on the Tea Party movement:
The idea that our government should work for the people, that we should be responsible with the tax dollars spent from Washington and that our personal liberties and freedoms are more valuable than anything are noble ideas.
Supposedly, this is the basis for the TEA Parties. But I don’t buy it….[they] simply want to serve as obstructionists to any legislative item put forth by the Obama Administration so they can try and win elections in 2012.
The Mississippi Democrats claim the Tea Party people didn’t oppose President Bush’s spending (which isn’t true) and that real conservatives are found by looking at people like Travis Childers and Gene Taylor (who elected Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House).
