    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3pnhL74ku8&feature]500+ Mass. Residents Confront Scott Brown on Anti-Jobs Votes - YouTube[/ame]

    I love this one, "Scott, here is a dollar bill. Why don't you come out and talk to the regular people"?

    ----------------------------

    FARGO - Divided economic philosophies enflamed a tense town hall meeting Thursday night with North Dakota Republican Rep. Rick Berg.

    --------------------------------

    Republican Rep. Chip) Cravaack said he wanted to bring down the tax rate to 25 percent for small businesses because higher taxes are passed on to consumers or result in layoffs.
    Audience member Dave Garshelis of Cohasset said President George W. Bush tried that plan and it didn't work.

    "Is this an experiment or a concept or do you have information from somewhere that shows this works?" he asked. "I'm wondering when the jobs are going to happen."

    --------------------------

    TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - Tuesday was a rough day for Sen. John McCain.

    ---------------------------

    Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne County-- A group of protesters rallied outside a Chamber of Commerce breakfast attended by Congressman Lou Barletta in Wilkes-Barre Tuesday morning.

    ---------------------------

    SILVER CITY - A woman stormed out of Congressman Steve Pearce's town hall meeting Tuesday night at the Silver City Senior Center, after calling Pearce a liar and saying "You're just (BSing) everyone and we don't buy it."

    The entertainment value alone makes GOP Town Halls worth watching.

    Very interesting video.
    So I had to find out was doing the protesting.

    Sounds like MA has a new version of the TEA Party, only louder, more colorful (love their orange shirts)

    On McCain:
    McCain deals with contentious crowd at Tucson town hall

    At a town hall meeting on the Northwest side the Arizona Republican took heat on just about everything, from the debt ceiling deal to the war in Afghanistan.
    The venue was not large enough for all who wanted to attend and many were turned away. Those who made it inside expressed frustration with just about everything Congress is doing, or not doing.
    There were people from across the political spectrum

    Why does a Tea Party gathering with a dozen people get more press than the entire anti-war movement?

    The news is what the Corporate Media wants to create...not what's really happening.
