Obama created the tea baggers
After the election victory of 2008 when Obama and the democrats took power, thae far right recognized that they were no longwer relevant. What better way to recreate themselves than to silently use the corporate cash to gradually build a grass roots organization. Not created by a groundswell of disappointed citizens but very much bought with right winger dollars. Koch brothers and **bleep** Armey are not small grass roots guys. They are community organizers plain and simple.
The american public rejected the Bushie right wing and the result was Obama and co. Money can buy a goundswell of attention but its not what it seems. It's an extremist right wing venture and nothing more. The publ;ic will have to reject them again.
