Coburn tries to answer but Gregory jumps in:
The movement was synonymous with violence against the government in August, according to David Gregory. Now, it's about whether government is working for the people.
The truth, of course, is it was always about whether government is working for the people, not racism or violence or fringe militia groups. And, if the media or Democrats had bothered to treat Tea Partiers' concerns with a modicum of respect in August, they might still have their Massachusetts Senate seat in January.
Of course, not everyone can see with new eyes.
