    This could be the most amazing video ever made: [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxJIdIFGUC8&feature=player_embedded[/ame]

    It is hard to believe that a Senator could not take time out of his day for an unscheduled appointment with a woman who was admittedly "yelling and screaming" at staffers. This is the tea party movement folks. Completely out of touch with reality.

    "They" in Washington D.C. as well as most government 'higher ups' federal, state and local, feel that they ARE the RULING class. And so far, they are. And they do not like the Tea Party movement, it threatens the very foundation of their power and control.

    Nice try. Jim Webb is an arrogant, disrespectful ass to begin with. His counterpart Senator Mark Warner wreaked financial havoc on Virginia while he was Governor and Warner's protege Tim Kaine has done more of the same since he's been in office.

    And, yes, it's true that our elected representatives think they are the ruling class and above it all.

    Oh - and the lady said "WE (the staffers and the lady's party) were yelling AT EACH OTHER."

    It isn't arrogant or disrespectful to not meet with someone who doesn't have an appointment, its common sense. Do people really think a Senator has time to yap with every yahoo who walks in off the street during their big DC vacation? Give me a break. CEOs and high powered lobbyist are often stuck talking to staff, let alone random whiny old woman.

    Seriously, would you expect to just walk into the White house and demand to speak to the President since he works for us? Jesus.

    As for Mark Warner, you have no idea what the hell you are talking about when it comes to his Governorship. Mark Warner saved the state's bond rating and Virginia was voted "best managed state," three of the four years he was in office. He was wildly popular with D's and R's.

    I live in Virginia and while I am no fan of Webb, Warner or Kaine, please tell me about this "financial havoc" that was wreaked on us under Warner?

    I would have to say that it's actually our Wealthy & Arrogant politicians in Congress who are the ones who are completely out of touch with reality. They wont even let you in the door unless you're carrying a bag of cash for them at this point. Shame on them.

    Our Politicians no longer serve the People. The People now serve them instead. This poor old lady didn't have a bag of cash or wasn't a wealthy & connected Lobbyist therefore she was not good enough to be seen by her Congressman. This is typical of our current crop of politicians. People need to be more like this brave woman and stand up to be heard. This does upset the arrogant politicians but it is also the only way to get their attention at this point. So Kudos to this brave woman!
