At first, I believed this was a bipartisan effort! But, now, I'm not so sure? I was considering joining them in this cause, but the more I read, and the more that was said, I have serious doubts that it is! Here's why............
Locally, the news of this is starting to be reported. I was reading this article and this question came to mind. If this was truly a bipartisan event, then why hasn't the Republican Party reached across party lines, and ask the Democratic Party to join them in this effort?
If this truly was about the wasteful spending by our government, (Republicans & Democrats alike) and about the bailouts of the banks and Wall Street, why were we not invited? I know the local organizers are saying "this is a none partisan event" but the Republican Party is not passing it off as that. I'm all for supporting a fight to end the waste by our government, but not when it seems to be more of a "Get Obama" event, rather than a "Stop the Waste" event! Just my thoughts on this matter!
"The Harris County Republican Party is encouraging local conservatives to participate in the local protests. It recently sent out an e-mail blast to about 10,000 people, chairman Jared Woodfill said, adding that the movement has energized the local party.
"I think people are sick and tired," Woodfill said. "Obama is taking the financial crisis and reshaping the country in the way he feels the best and turning it into something they don't recognize. I think it's the beginning of a large anti-tax movement."
His counterpart at the Harris County Democratic Party, chairman Gerry Birnberg, said he could not comment on the tea parties because he did not know anything about them."
See what I mean??
