Sixty days into the new era of hope and change, receding oceans, and skittle-shitting unicorns:
Protesters said *they felt the multi-billion dollar stimulus package will not do enough to help stimulate the economy, and that the bill was rushed through before most lawmakers even had the chance to read it.
A media release announcing the event said the rally’s aim was to show politicians that they were tired of bailouts and “wasteful Washington spending.”
Police said there were no problems at the rally.
Of course not…these are law abiding, conservative people.
Rassmussen has bad news for Obama:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 36% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-two percent (32%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of +4 (see trends).
This puts Obama below where the much reviled President Bush was at this time in his Presidency. But at least our overseas allies are still on board with the Obama Express, right?
Maybe Obama’s brown shirted canvassers ( do not alert Godwin….click on link if you don’t believe me) should start hitting these tea parties to inform the ignorant masses about dear leader’s “bold plan to strengthen the American economy”. Because from the looks of it, people are dubious. In fact, I think it’s safe to say, people are calling b.s. on Dear Leader in increasing numbers.
In the meantime, His Highness can go on 60 Minutes, (sans teleprompter) and beclown himself.
*Someone was clearly either misinterpreting what they were hearing, or was consciously trying to slant the reporting. Nobody and I do mean nobody who goes to these tea parties would say that the freakin’ stimulus was “not enough”.
Shelly from Floridians Unite says the crowd at the Orlando tea party was more like 5,000-6,000, according to the city and police on site.

All via Instapundit, who’s been a tea-party-coverin’ fool since they started about a month ago. Kudos to him for giving them the attention they should be getting from the MSM.
