That's because the tea party movement is simply astroturf. It was begun by the conservative elites to whip the public into a frenzy against Obama on the chance that McCain lost in 2008. This is why many of the website urls for the tea party were purchased and reserved in August and September of 2008, well before the election even took place.

The Tea Party is directed at putting more Republicans into office, not at any real, substantial change that would actually alleviate any of our problems.

Technically, the Tea Party started as a grassroots libertarian movement that was co-opted by conservative elites into the movement that it is now. As far as I understand the history, anyway.
