Yesterday there was a major Tea Party rally scheduled in Columbia, S.C, in which about 2,000 people were expected to attend. Well it didn't turn out that way:
The Columbia Tea Party went from Donald Trump to jilted chump after the celebrity businessman canceled his appearance at Thursday’s State House rally, and state legislators approved tax breaks and spending that the group opposed.
Trump’s decision to not enter the GOP presidential race left local Tea Party leaders stewing about the way they had been treated. But about 30 people were on hand Thursday to thank Gov. Nikki Haley, lawmakers and activists for their work to require more on-the-record Legislative votes.
It was all part of a tough week for the state’s Tea Party movement.
Nikki Haley, a Tea Party darling, could only muster about 30 people to come out and hear her speak? I've seen the crazy guy preaching about the rapture on some random street corner get more listeners. But wait, pictures do speak louder than words, so here:
Of course the media will still have you believe that the Tea Party is this huge driving force. You won't find coverage of this kind of failure in the lame stream media.
