Last week, House Minority Leader John Boehner of Ohio made a pitch to Democratic contributor James Dimon, the chairman and chief executive of J.P. Morgan, over drinks at a Capitol Hill restaurant, according to people familiar with the matter.
Mr. Boehner told Mr. Dimon congressional Republicans had stood up to Mr. Obama's efforts to curb pay and impose new regulations.
In case it is lost on Tea Party readers, John Boehner, the REPUBLICAN leader, was the one bragging to Wall Street that REPUBLICANS have been blocking efforts to reign in the bonuses and consumer protections.

Well, what is lost on you knee-jerk, uninformed, Tea Party Haters is that the Tea Party has equal scorn FOR the GOP. They recognize that Bush and the Republicans were really big spenders but that Obama is accelerating that.
I mean, we just raised the debt ceiling by $1.8 Trillion and, according to the Treasury, we'll hit that at the end of this month (http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5hEkfx_bpGC-zVoeKNR38gWLcjXdw); this with a Democratic President and overwhelming Democratic Majorities in the House and Senate (remember Sen. Brown hasn't been seated yet)
The Tea Party is against out of control spending, cronyism, corruption etc. Which Obama ran against and is doing his best to outdo Bush in. The Tea Partiers are a very diverse (politically and racially) crowd who see their country being destroyed for the special interests (Unions, etc)
You'd know this if you thought for yourself and didn't just take you marching orders from Olbermann, Maddow, and Mathews.
