From the very beginning of the Tea Party movement, I’ve reported that activists have directed their disgust at both parties over fiscal recklessness.

It’s an inconvenient truth the Tea Party-bashers would rather ignore.

The anger at Republicans who voted for TARP hasn’t gone away. And Texas Sen. John Cornyn was vividly reminded of that as he spoke at the Austin Tea Party this weekend. Accountability:

U.S. Sen. John Cornyn drew boos from a crowd outside the Texas Capitol this afternoon as he spoke at a “tea party” rally organized by the Texas office of Americans for Prosperity.

Cornyn was booed at the start and close of his remarks, which assailed actions in Washington; there were no boos while he awarded a Purple Heart to a Copperas Cove resident injured in Iraq in 2006.

“You’re the problem,” a crowd member hollered.

Another crowd member yelled that Cornyn voted for the initial federal bailout of Wall Street approved by Congress last year, the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

Here’s the vid. Watch it all the way through:

More from Texas blogger Robbie Cooper:

Cornyn (I like the guy, actually. Voted for him. Supported for him. But not again. I’m not voting for a single incumbent) kept talking about the bad things being done by “Washington”. But he never acknowledged that he is part of Washington. But, then again, he didn’t really need to. The crowd’s booing and jeering were evidence that they got it.
