Anti science Hack Hinderaker is upset that Dems are using tea party townhall tactics that he applauded the past two years? Ho hum.

Video: Rep. Paul Ryan faces constituent questions at Rotary luncheon

Constituents upset that Rep. Paul Ryan didn’t schedule any public town hall meetings to discuss the unemployment rate and lack of job creation in Wisconsin’s first Congressional district paid to attend a rotary luncheon to hear the Congressman speak. One after another the constituents stood up to ask the Representative to address their concerns about the jobless rate in his backyard. As each constituent was removed a new constituent stood up.

The right can dish it out but they can’t take. Good for Wisconsin Democrats. Keep up the good work, you’ve got a governor to recall in January.

TEA PARTY ATTACK

Congressman Dan Lipinski’s Town Hall Meeting on November 14th, and the attempt by the Chicago Tea Party Patriots to disrupt the proceedings, including heckling Midge Hough, who lost a loved one due to lack of health insurance.

Psycho Teabaggers. Most who should have been arrested.

Paul Ryan is a tool.

Rep. Steve Kagen (D-WI) Shouted Down At Town Hall

Notice how they’re considered “passionate” voters since it’s being reported by Fox. No arrests though. Ignore Pawlenty at the end.

Buck,

Why are you still reading Powerline?

You want a good accurate news story, right? All I did was google Paul Ryan, and clicked on Paul Ryan News. Here’s some of the story from Politico:

Three people were arrested and 20 removed from Rep. Paul Ryan’s appearance at a “pay per view” town hall crowd on Tuesday, according to local police.

Ryan’s appearance before the Whitnall Park Rotary Club in Greenfield, Wis., came after POLITICO revealed that he was one of at least four GOP members of Congress who appeared before only paying crowds while not holding any free town hall meetings open to the public during the August recess.

During the event the House Budget Committee chairman spoke over protestors who tried to shout him down, according to video of the event posted by Milwaukee Fox affiliate WITI-TV.

“I’m going to keep talking, because this is what you asked me to come here to do,” Ryan told members of the crowd, whose $15 admission fee included a hot lunch. “I have never been so encouraged before. and I know you see, gosh, there’s police here and there’s protesters there and this, this has triggered such an incredible outpouring of support and encouragement, I’ve never seen it before.”

Do you see the difference in just a few paragraphs? In other words, if you were there, would the event have been one marked by arguing or would it have been a near riot, as Powerline infers?

Your own footage shows that it was a normal American political event.

Scott Walker won’t even face a vote. The Dems are mad, but they don’t have the political firepower to do anything. Their big state Senate takeover failed, and any attempt to recall Walker will do likewise. Walker will stay governor, and the public sector unions will stay busted.

Begorrah! Twas forty of Madison’s finest, union men the lot of them, and they kept the bayin’ Democrats at bay…

You are not taking into account the fact that the recall races were in mostly Republican districts. The Democrats will get enough signatures (from the two largest cities in the state) to get a recall on the ballot.

The unions will be unbusted and the next. gov, will have to sit down and negotiate with the unions like they do all over the world.

Republicans should try it, it might make for a better country.

“Wisconsin Democratic Party says Republican Representatives Paul Ryan, Sean Duffy and Reid Ribble are making people pay for access to them”
