Tea Parties Revisited

There has been a lot of negative articles on OEN about the Tea Parties submitted by people who did not attend one.  There were even more negative comments.  From my point of view, the writers and the commenters seemed to have based their observations about the Tea Parties on news reports from media sources with axes to grind.

Glen Beck of Fox News did a special report on the Tea Parties that consists of people speaking their minds about the Tea Parties.  The people had in the studio were obviously Tea Party attendees and did not look like they were coerced or drugged into speaking.  They looked pretty much like what we think of as average Americans.  I guess for Beck to be fair and balanced he should have included people who did not attend a Tea Party and had no idea what they were talking about. 

I attended a Tea Party in Phoenix and what these people said in the clip below agrees pretty much with what I personally saw and experienced.  If what you saw and experienced at a Tea Party (and not in front of your TV while watching CNN or MSNBC) differs, please comment.  You watch and you decide.
