'Progressives' hope to mimic Tea Party

A group of liberal political leaders and civil rights activists want to replicate the Tea Party movement in an effort to bolster the alleged "progressive movement."

The new group called "One Nation" consists of 170 of the country's leading liberal leaders who say the coalition is to "counter the Tea Party narrative." Organizers have launched their movement under the moniker "all the change" they voted for, seeking to energize the base that elected Barack Obama in 2008. The Washington Post reports that among the groups involved with One Nation are the National Council of La Raza, the NAACP, the AFL-CIO, and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) -- groups which together represent "the core of the first-time voters" who backed Obama, notes the Post.
