Where were you then, Tea Party?

I find it humorous to read about this so-called Tea Party movement and their cry to return to core conservative values. So, why the outcry now? Where were you the past eight years when your conservative buddies who, I’m sure you voted in to office, were exploding the size of our federal government, breaking the Constitution with illegal wire taps and torture memos and spending money like drunken sailors? Where was the outrage then? Stop the hypocrisy.
