Maher is playing with history a bit here - in fact the tea party didn't form until Obama's first year in office, but the roots from it started with TARP - under Bush and was an outgrowth of the backlash the GOP experienced in 2006 and 2008 which gave congress and the senate to the Democrats and elected a Democrat President.... Obama doubled down and gave steam to an already rumbling electorate and it had nothing to do with skin color - it was about fiscal issues and crossed party lines.
