This is Really Pathetic!

Republican Govs try to get on the Tea Party bandwagon.

Politico reports:
Hoping to recapture the grassroots energy of last month’s “tea parties,” Republican Govs. Mark Sanford of South Carolina and Rick Perry of Texas will host a tele-town hall Thursday that’s being dubbed “Tea Party 2.0.”

The Republican Governors Association said it is expecting 30,000 people to participate in the town hall, which will take place roughly one month after the much-publicized anti-tax tea party rallies held in hundreds of locations across the country on April 15, the tax filing deadline.

Sanford and Perry will each speak for several minutes before opening up the town hall to up to an hour-long question and answer session.

The strength and authenticity of the Tea Party movement is a result of its having been organized, not by politicians or political operatives, but by citizens. If the govs stick their noses in it they will ruin the whole thing. But isn't that what they always do?

And by the way..., for the benefit of the very, very slow people out there [like the MSM drones], those weren't "anti-tax" rallies so much as they were ANTI-SPENDING rallies.
