NEW YORK-Supporters of President Barack Obama have taken a page from the right wing and started a tea party of their own.

The group, “Harlem 4 Obama” staged the tea party in order to garner support for Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign.

The New York Daily News reports:

Members of Harlem 4 Obama, which helped register thousands of voters during Obama’s 2008 election campaign, passed out cups of iced tea as demonstrators held signs that read: “Increased Funding for Violence Against Women,” and “This Election is About You! Are You in?”

“Our premise is that we have allowed the Tea Party to shape the debate,” Whye said. “We’re going to take back the definition of tea party. They wanted to define us, we’re redefining them.”
