    profiles in courage, indeed. :lol:

    "In New Hampshire, where open political meetings are deeply ingrained in the state’s traditions, Representative Carol Shea-Porter’s campaign Web site had this message for visitors: “No upcoming events scheduled. Please visit us again soon!”

    Ms. Shea-Porter, a Democrat, attended a state convention of letter carriers on Saturday, but she did not hold a town-hall-style meeting during the Congressional recess. In 2006, when she was an underdog candidate for the House, she often showed up at the meetings of her Republican rival, Representative Jeb Bradley, to question him about Iraq."

    They're probably still having nightmares over what they faced during the town hall meeting's over health care---:lol::lol: Now that they passed it against their constitutents wishes--I imagine public appearances are totally out of the question.

    I dont blame them, I'd be hiding out to. They are hoping that between now and November voters will just forget about them.

    This is occuring all over the country as a result of the people moving back to the founding principles of our nation. Constituents in all districts are embracing the views of our founding fathers and rejecting the far-left radical agenda that has been advanced for the past year and a half. If this movement continues, America can be restored.

    I don't care what party you're in. If you won't meet with your constituents, you shouldnt be in office. How are you supposed to represent someone you don't meet with?

    Then again, does she care about representing her area? Or is she in office to do something else entirely?

    Nice try at moral equivalence. But radical fail.

    In fact the Dems are doomed. ANyone on office who hasnt been clearly opposed to DC's business as usual is doomed, I dont care what party they're from.
    The American People are sick to death of Democrats. They're sick to death of Republicans who talk one way and then spend more and expand more government. They've had it. They're pissed as hell and they aren't going to take it anymore.

    For anyone who CAN'T read through the Rabbi's hypocritical smokescreen, the answer would be ZERO.

    You really can't be that stupid, right?
    The quote from the OP says the present incumbent showed up at her rival's meetings. WTF do you think it was talking about??

    Doesn't it suck when you can't even answer the SIMPLEST of questions, Rabbi?
