National Coffee Party Day flops

16 03 2010

We just did the story about this new movement on our radio show, The Uncooperative Radio Show last weekend. This event on Saturday is going to be interesting to watch.

From WorldNetDaily:

Leading up to today’s “National Coffee Party Day” ā€“ the countrywide launch of a leftwing movement meant as an answer to the tea parties ā€“ a CNN article asked, “Will the Coffee Party rise to the scale of the Tea Party movement? Saturday is the first big test.”

If “scale” is indeed the measure by which the Coffee Party will be graded, however, today’s cup-o’-Joe kickoff has earned a resounding “F.”

Despite a news-media buildup over the past few weeks from CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, National Public Radio, Washington Post, Seattle Times and dozens of other outlets, the estimated 350 coffee houses hosting events around the country today welcomed mostly minuscule crowds.

Last year, the fledgling tea-party movement scheduled nearly 2,000 gatherings on April 15, Tax Day. Over the summer, tea partiers packed health-care town halls by the hundreds, overflowing venues and leading to lines running around the block. On Sept. 12, the crowd of tea partiers that flooded Washington, D.C., was estimated into the hundreds of thousands, possibly topping 1 million.

We will be keeping a eye on this movement and will probably do the story on the Uncooperative Radio show this weekend. I love it, the left and our elected “cockroaches” really believe that our Republic is comprised of “commies”. Well we shall see Saturday.

I’d be curious as to what you would expect a two month old organization to be able to pull together that would be regarded as a success? I’m a coordinator for our local group in Omaha… we had 42 people show up, and it was our second meeting.

400ish meetings across the country, tens of thousands showing up… in two months. How exactly is that a failure?

This is not a rhetorical question.
