An update: Several hundred tea party patriots gathered today on a chilly, damp day.
At least 4 Freepers rongkirby, tammycat, W04Man and myself.
Speakers were first team: Mike Pence, Steve King, Joe Walsh, Jim DeMint, Rand Paul, Michelle Bachman, Allen West and - believe it or not - Dick Morris, who closed the event with 15 minutes of nonstop attacks on senior dems, the budget and obama.
Plus Griff Jenkins, O’Reilly’s TV attack man against corrupt libs. Talked with him.
A lot of TV cameras were rolling, maybe you will see some of it on CSPN or CNN.
All in all, a very good rally.
Thanks for going and reporting.
I heard that a contingent of Tea Party members will be there till the budget is voted on. Did you get their schedule?
I saw that report and was only half listening. I didn’t realize it was the Tea Party Caucus that had organized the Tea Party event. The way it sounded yesterday, I thought it was just the caucus that was going to camp on Reid’s steps. Happy to see that there is going to be Tea Party folks helping. That’s what we have to do; keep on the pressure.
