Pols booed at Texas Tea Party

Everybody’s jumping on the Tea Party bandwagon.  I wish they would go back to Washington and put their money where their mouth is .i.e STOP SPENDING our money.

S. Sen. John Cornyn drew boos from a crowd outside the Texas Capitol this afternoon as he spoke at a “tea party” rally organized by the Texas office of Americans for Prosperity.

Cornyn was booed at the start and close of his remarks, which assailed actions in Washington; there were no boos while he awarded a Purple Heart to a Copperas Cove resident injured in Iraq in 2006.

“You’re the problem,” a crowd member hollered.

Another crowd member yelled that Cornyn voted for the initial federal bailout of Wall Street approved by Congress last year, the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

UPDATE, 4:04 p.m.: Governor Rick Perry drew scattered boos, notably from crowd members aware of his advocacy of toll roads to relieve traffic congestion.
