Rise and Shine --- Iced tea

Good Morning and welcome back to the soup!

So, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Vice President Joe Biden were in Philadelphia yesterday morning for a fundraiser to help Bryan Lentz in his battle with Pat Meehan for the 7th District House seat.
As usual for these events, they were met by a group of protesters. Truth be told, there are protesters out for every political event. Those Lyndon LaRouche people have mad this an art.
This year, though, there can't be an event without Tea Partiers hanging out with signs. It was telling, though, when interviewed the head Tea Partier was asked what policies she didn't like about the current administration.
Her response: "Well, all of them."
When pressed for specifics, she said: "Obamacare and all the other legislative decisions."
So, after seeing this interview on TV, does anybody really know what the those people were protesting?
Do they go out there just to be seen? Are they pushing a different agenda? Do they not like the president because of the color of his skin? Is it much ado about nothing?
It looks from here that this is a vocal minority who gets coverage now because we have to fill all that time with something.
Lyndon LaRouche must be thinking he came along too soon.
Then again, maybe it is about something else:
