    How can you have a 'discussion' with a person that just insults you and calls you names, instead of talking substance?

    Which is precisely why the townhalls have been completely useless. These morons show up to disrupt, not get educated.

    From what I see on that link, the insults were on Frank's part, when he refused to answer questions from people who were not there to pat Obama on the back.

    Townhalls are not for "education". They are for people to get together and discuss issues, so that ALL SIDES are given an opportunity to have their voices heard.

    They aren't a forum where the masses huddle in respectful silence while their legislators "educate" them about what's best for them.

    Gee... I remember a bygone era when protesting at soldiers funerals, calling the President "chimp", calling the Vice President "***** Vader", denouncing the troops, etc. was.. geee.. I think Hillary Clinton deemed it "patriotic". Now we have people voicing disssent over a policy direction whcih would be a quantum shift in the American ladscape and not to mention, just doesn't add up $$ and sense wise, and is being propsed by the same folks that have bankrupted the mortgage industry, SSI, Medicare, Medicaid, the Post Office, Amtrak, and the U.S. in general, and you folks are telling people to STFU.
    Please tell me again why you are willing to put your very LIFE in the hands of a bunch who can't even run a business that moves paper from one town to the next?

    Not a huge Frank fan either, but I think our leaders do have a responsibility to accurately and honestly discuss legislation - NOT prey upon irrational fear and pander to ignorance.

    Regardless of your attempted spin, this Palin-like bimbo was put in her place and only further illustrates the GOP's plans to disrupt these townhalls.

    For the same reason you were willing to put your very LIFE in the hands of a bunch who couldn't even invade the RIGHT country?
