U.S. Senate Republican Whip Jon Kyl goes “On The Record” with FNC’s Greta Van Susteren over whether congressional Democrats will invoke the “nuclear option” and force through Congress their unpopular, partisan health care plan. Kyl says that Democrats should start from scratch and involve Republicans in crafting true bipartisan health-care reform that targets specific problems with specific solutions

I hope Sheboresus is enjoying her nifty new job at HHS….heh. Funny, she didn’t mind rowdy crowds when she was helping throw the race card down on Hill…she said using the word ‘arrogant’ to describe Obama was racist, I kid you not….

Also having fun Lloyd Doggett D in TX courtesy of HA:

Courtesy of dumpdoggett:

Rep Doggett met with constituents outside a grocery store in south Austin regarding the health care bill. Apparently the event was mostly advertised in liberal leaning local publications. He did not bring a megaphone, so hearing what he had to say was difficult. When he started making the move to leave, the crowd erupted chanting “Just say no!” His worker got the car ready to shuttle him away but the crowd surrounded it and it took a while for him to get out of the parking lot. The whole time, the “Just say no!” chant continued. It probably won’t matter – from his facial expression, body language, and what was heard to come out of his mouth, he’s for the the health care bill in its present form and has no openness to change on that.

It never ceases to amaze me how COMPLETELY out of touch these Critters are with their constituents positions…Welcome Home for the Recess…get to know the people who ELECTED you and what THEY want….click Recess Rally linky to find a rally near you…see MM for ongoing coverage and Recess Rally updates…

Hell’s Grannies: Congress Critters continue to call cops on peaceful constituents; is this a ‘teachable moment’?

Update: Coverage up at Ace and HA. HA notes these grannies were for single payer. Either way, without an ACORN sign or Al Sharpton apparently you get the boot…

You KNOW they would NEVER EVER call the cops on ACORN demonstrators, despite how rowdy and disruptive many of those demonstrations get, it would be raaaacist! But let a group of Senior Citizens sit in a conference room and ask to discuss the health care bill and they SET the MAN on their elderly axxes…unreal….keep up the heat! Gee you think Feinstein will invite the office staffers and the Seniors to sit down for a beer together?

SFGate via Drudge:

Police were called on a group of retirees who refused to leave Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s West Los Angeles office until she talked to them about health care reform. Los Angeles police Sergeant Rich Brunson said Thursday that police lured the group of seven outside somehow, then locked the building’s doors behind them. ..

A spokeswoman for the 55- to 87-year-old activists said they arrived at Feinstein’s office around noon and remained in her conference room more than six hours. Feinstein spokesman Gil Duran says staff offered the retirees an in-person meeting with the senator during a Los Angeles visit next week but that they demanded to speak with her immediately.

After referring to CONSTITUENT’s emails to OUR congressperson’s Chiefs of Staff as SPAM, Politico has another front page piece on the Town Hall’s at which REAL, unpaid, non-professional, non ‘community organizers’, have been appearing to voice our concerns with the out of control spending, in which they portray the Congress Critters (Dems) as put upon, and the PEOPLE as rabble rousers. But when the neoprogs organize it is ‘grass roots’. Uh huh. I cannot WAIT for 2010….send these people who do not even feel obligated to talk to us, or read our emails or read the damn legislation they pass, out of DC on a rail!

Alex Isenstadt:  Screaming constituents, protesters dragged out by the cops, congressmen fearful for their safety — welcome to the new town-hall-style meeting, the once-staid forum that is rapidly turning into a house of horrors for members of Congress.

On the eve of the August recess, members are reporting meetings that have gone terribly awry, marked by angry, sign-carrying mobs and disruptive behavior. In at least one case, a congressman has stopped holding town hall events because the situation has spiraled so far out of control. “I had felt they would be pointless,” Rep. Tim Bishop (D-N.Y.) told POLITICO, referring to his recent decision to temporarily suspend the events in his Long Island district. “There is no point in meeting with my constituents and [to] listen to them and have them listen to you if what is basically an unruly mob prevents you from having an intelligent conversation.” In Bishop’s case, his decision came on the heels of a June 22 event he held in Setauket, N.Y., in which protesters dominated the meeting by shouting criticisms at the congressman for his positions on energy policy, health care and the bailout of the auto industry. Within an hour of the disruption, police were called in to escort the 59-year-old Democrat — who has held more than 100 town hall meetings since he was elected in 2002 — to his car safely.

We posted this Bishop town hall video and it was very calm, rational constituents challenging his talking points, there was no ‘danger’. What a tool!

Update: Enzi, Grassley say no deal from GOP Cmte members before recess; Progressive Caucus revolts against Dem leadership on deal Waxman cut with Blue Dogs; Reid blames the media for the August deadline, and Nancy ratchets up class warfare again…

harry-reid-incompetence

Update 4: the ‘blame the media’ is (un)Official Policy says I. Gibby used it today at the presser and tried to make it a joke. Reid AND Gibby make it clear the media is the fall guy for the latest failure in TOTUS Town…

Update 3: No agreement on health care from GOP Cmte Members per Grassley, Enzi. In other news the Dems are really losin it, Harry Reid is BLAMING THE MEDIA now !! Yes! He says the MEDIA created the August deadline. Guess he missed TOTUS and Gibby laying out August every other hour…

Reid said reporters created a fictitious deadline of a successful vote by the August recess, and downplayed the fact that the chamber won’t meet that mark.

“That is a deadline that you created,” Reid told a group of about 75 reporters. “It’s not like we don’t have a product. Significant progress has been made … The mere fact that this wasn’t done by last Friday or by five o’clock doesn’t mean we’re not going to get a quality product.”

And MiM has speculated here often that the reason TOTUS wanted it done BEFORE August is b/c the WH has been holding back the updated economic projections, (usually released mid July) showing the projected deficit. Obviously he wanted the healthcare deficit adding budget busting plan pushed through BEFORE anyone got a good look at what the deficit will be BEFORE they add on this mondo spending…yep.

Pelosi is raving against the EEEEEvil Insurance Companies now, looking to gin up that good ole’ standby, Class Warfare. It worked so well with Wall St and the EEEEEvil bankers and AIG  (at least until Dodd got hoisted by his own petard having approved those bonuses himself, frakker). AP at HA has the details on Nancy’s ravings….

And in other fun for Nancy and Harry, the Progressive Caucus within the Dem majority is now in open revolt against the leadership for the deal Waxman cut with the Blue Dogs...the CBC has been throwing down the race card left and right, noting that the Energy Cmte Blue Dogs are all white men, and claiming the Blue Dogs are betraying the 20-40% of their constituents who are black. Seriously. Well, Nancy and Harry let the race card fly left and right against Hill in our primaries, so like I say live by the race card, die by the race card..karma baby..

…At one point, Carolyn Kilpatrick (D-Mich.), a former Congressional Black Caucus chairwoman, expressed outrage that conservatives would insist on significant cuts and a weakening of the public option, arguing that many of the Blue Dogs were letting down their black constituents, who make up 25 percent to 40 percent of their voters, in some instances….

…The intraparty dispute had racial overtones. One African-American Democrat, Representative Hank Johnson of Georgia, pointed out that the seven Blue Dog Democrats holding up the health care bill in the Energy and Commerce Committee were “a nondiverse group” of white men….

Nancy tried to push back on this conflict today:

…As to claims that Democratic leadership sold out progressive, African-Americans and Hispanic reps by negotiating a side deal, she responded: “Might I remind you that the progressives are represented on committees of jurisdiction in a very strong manner. Might I remind you that the progressives are chairmen of those committees — progressives have been well represented.”…

I hope everyone tries to get out and attend the AUGUST 22ND RECESS RALLY with the Tea Party Patriots!!!
