    This is what Democrats have come to! Openly using stalinist type THUGS to keep people from asking them questions they don't want to answer.

    Watch this and remember this stuff come November!

    TPS, She actually represents my district. I can vote for or against her. However, she wasn't using thuggish tactics, she was using order restoring tactics. If everyone yelled out at once then it would be chaos. For the most part the security guards seemed well under control and polite. You can't just scream and interrupt a speaker and think that is OK. Obviously this guy came in with an agenda and didn't really want a discussion.

    Special note: The security guards didn't even make him turn the camera off! Remember she is still a Congress-woman, and there are people out there that would physically hurt her.

    I am leaning towards Bean, unless something big happens. I like that she was only 1 of 15 Ds to vote in support of extending the $70 bil tax cuts and voted for the lower estate taxes.

    You KNOW these hypocrites would be screaming their heads off if Bush/Rove ever even THOUGHT of using such tactics.

    Hypocrites!

    Remember this in November.

    WOW, didn't you learn anything from the whole breitbart scandal and how NOT to use edited video??

    You claim intimidation and yet your edited video doesn't show any REAL intimidation. It cuts off and plays ominous music before we get to hear what the first guy says to the person so in the end you've got nothing but baseless propaganda.
    There was a format to the event and some people did not appreciate that, claimed that they came there for a differen reason than what was supposed to be talked about and were trying to interupt because they believed that their attempts to attack and smear a democrat as they filmed it for youtube took precedence over the actual topics of the event.

    Have you ever been at a town hall meeting where everyone yelled out, more than one person spoke and the questions turned into statements? They go downhill very fast and are counter-productive. "Bruno" didn't grab anyone and wouldn't have. If the person was intimidated, then he/she needs to grows a pair. In honesty the guy that made the tape was over provoking and deserved to be asked to leave. I personally have seen Bean do Q & A's in the past and its nothing like what she is being protrayed as. She dodged Q's no doubt, but their was no intimidation and she is very respectful. In fact I would be upset, if they didn't have any security, because one bad apple ALWAYS ruins it for the bunch! Voting strictly because someone is a D or R is not my game, it should be others.

    I am upset with the alternative. Joe Walsh is not the guy we need, guarantee he will be further left than Bean. Yep he says all the talking points, but I doubt he will stick to them. This is a guy that keeps moving from district to district and losing election after election. Its embarrassing. Bean has a history of voting against tax hikes, voting for tax cuts (even against her own party), she has even voted against spending, she isn't a porker and she has spoke out for completing the border fence and against amnesty. I am probably voting for her.

    I voted for Maria Rodriguez (yes Ravi, I know she is a Latina), she was a great candidate and someone would would have been great for the country! We missed out big time on her!
