Happy Birthday Tea Party Movement

On February 27th, 2011, the nationwide Tea Party movement was born. As most of us recall, Rick Santelli ranted on Thursday, February 19th, 2009 from the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange about the latest bailout. That weekend, a handful of patriots gathered on a conference call arranged by Christina Botteri and Michael Patrick Leahy (TCOT Founder), to begin planning simultaneous tea parties in cities across the country.
