As Seen By Opponents

Here are a couple of write-ups from non-supportive visitors who came to observe the Chicago Tea Thingie.

Person 1:
Most attendees were pretty open about their anger. The term, socialism, was thrown around pretty liberally. Yet no one got nasty (me being in my Obama jacket) or accusatory. I asked several people if they had a copy of their talking points, but no one admitted having a copy. People did admit that they got an email about the event.
Talking points? Ha! This wasn't that controlled. At all. I wouldn't attend an event that had talking points. I've been to the Democratic Convention, and I don't recall being handed talking points for that either!

Person 2:
Despite the fact that I don't agree with the premise of the event, nor understand what motivated any of them to attend (ftr, I also don't understand the leftist groups that protest the G-5, et al), I thought it was a good event. 

I hate typing that, but it's true. They may be misguided, but they live here too.
And those last 2 sentences... they rhyme!

Yes, it's true.
We live here too.
