You know that Network that says Fox News uses highly edited video Liberal news outlets were quick to run an edited video of Senator John McCain (R., Ariz.) at a recent town hall meeting, alleging it shows the senator’s insensitivity towards a grieving mother who lost her son in the 2012 Aurora shooting. The edited video first appeared on Phoenix’s KTVK during a news package of the town hall meetings McCain has held during his most recent trip through Arizona. The video shows Caren Teves, whose son was killed when spree killer James Holmes attacked a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises, asking the senator about assault weapons. “These weapons don’t belong on our streets,” she says. The video then cuts to McCain responding by saying, “I can tell you right now you [...]

REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT ON TOWN HALL WITH LINKEDIN Computer History Museum Mountain View, California 10:58 A.M. PDT MR. WEINER: Good morning, everyone. AUDIENCE MEMBER: Yes! MR. WEINER: Oh, very nice. (Laughter.) Thank you so much for joining us here today for a very special town hall discussion on a subject we all know to be truly important, and that's putting America back to work. In just a moment, I'm going to be introducing a very special guest, but before I do, just a few brief introductory remarks. I think today's venue, the Computer History Museum, here in Silicon Valley, is a very fitting one for our discussion. There's a number of folks who've come to Silicon Valley not just for a job, or even a career path, but because they're [...]
President Obama to Participate in Town Hall at the University of Maryland, College Park Friday, July 22, 2011
President Obama to Participate in Town Hall at the University of Maryland, College Park WASHINGTON – On Friday, July 22, at 11:00 a.m., President Obama will travel to the University of Maryland, College Park, to participate in a town hall. Tickets will be distributed to the public by the University of Maryland.
I guess Trumka is a bit upset with the President. Seems that even almost daily communication hasn't made the AFL-CIO boss happy. President Obama, hip person that he is, will hold a town hall today in which he'll answer questions to him submitted on Twitter with an #AskObama hashtag. Obviously, the Republicans have been having some fun with this. Speaker of the House John Boehner asked Obama, "With 9.1% unemployment & 'shovel ready' jobs a bust, will you admit the 'stimulus' was a mistake?" Okay. Read the Rest at Daily Intel.
A little advice for the former talk show host of the Defunct Liberal Air America - a Real Journalist reports the story but never becomes the story. I see that civility was all directed at the Right, as it is not present on the left. Our sources say that crashing Town Halls is part of the agenda from here to election day. The desired outcome is to make the GOP look mean spirited for wanting to get the budget under control. It is an old play for the Democrat playbook. Local police arrested a woman who appears to be former liberal radio network Air America host Nicole Sandler while she was disrupting Rep. Allen West’s Tuesday town hall event in Fort Lauderdale and harassing the Congressman’s wife. According to video obtained by Florida blogger Javier Manjarres, known better [...]
No Dirty deals on Health Care? Dems really do think constituents are stupid. From Gateway Pundit Last night, I attended and took on Debbie Wasserman Schultz at her SEIU thug controlled townhall. She played a propaganda film with lying Dem talking points and filled the place early with 3/4 of the people to intimidate. She so-called meeting was tightly controlled. Outside there were 100’s of protesters….and thugs shoving tea party people. The police force was over the top. I asked her to defend her party’s dirty deals and backroom deals….and then I asked her why she has been silent on Obama humiliating Israel’s P.M. at the W.H. She refused to answer the latter, and lied about the deals….saying there were NO DIRTY DEALS. Here is the video of Wasserman-Schultz being [...]
Herein lies the ultimate Achilles’ Heel of Obamacare. Watch as Democrat Rep. Niki Tsongas (MA-5th) of Massachusetts attempts to explain why Congress is exempt from the government health care takeover mandates. The exchange starts at 4:00: Epic fail. The imperious “Do as I say, not as I do” ways of Washington cannot be packaged as choice-enhancing, no matter how hard Rep. Tsongas tries. Refresher from 5 key freedoms you’ll lose under Obamacare: In short, the Obama platform would mandate extremely full, expensive, and highly subsidized coverage — including a lot of benefits people would never pay for with their own money — but deliver it through a highly restrictive, HMO-style plan that will determine what care and tests you can and can’t have. It’s a revolution, all [...]
After his town-hall meeting, Rep. Russ Carnahan (D-MO) decried the “assault” on his constituent meetings by right-wing activists. Jamie Allman, a St., Louis talk-show host, attended Carnahan’s press conference the next day and asked Carnahan to explain why the only people arrested for assault at his town-hall meeting were ObamaCare supporters — specifically, union thugs who assaulted opponents of the health-care reform plan. Suddenly, Carnahan got a lot more universal in his accusations: It “got out of control on both sides”? Did anyone from the opposition start cracking heads at that rally? They may have been loud and angry about the government essentially nationalizing 15% of the private economy, but until the unions began showing up to these rallies, there hadn’t been [...]
Are you opposed to ObamaCare? Willing to attend a town hall to express your disapproval? Odds are good you're a racist. Just ask Cynthia Tucker . . . As Clay Waters has noted, Paul Krugman alleges that racist motives are at the heart of the town hall protests against ObamaCare. On this evening's Hardball, Cynthia Tucker of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution was willing to get specific, estimating that "45 to 65%" of the protesters are motivated by racism. View video here. CHRIS MATTHEWS: Put 100 of these people in a room. Strap them into gurneys. Inject them with sodium pentathol. How many of them would say "I don't like the idea of having a black president"? What percentage? CYNTHIA TUCKER: Oh, I'm just guessing. This is just off the cuff. I think 45 to 65% of the people who [...]
