Stacking the Deck and still failing: Tim Bishop (D-NY) fills townhall with out of town union thugs…

Oh Tim, Tim. My poor mother is stuck with this buffoon for a Critter. Ugh. Cannot wait for 2010 so all these maroons can be sent out of town on a rail…Begone ye vapid tools of Pelosi! Get us someone who GETS IT and listens to the people!

Congressman Tim Bishop believes he can pack his town halls with sympathetic unions. Is this the face of Obama’s supporters? The people of NY District 1 don’t buy it! The CWA shirts and other groups were brought to the town hall from outside District 1. Who is John Durso? Why is he trying to upstage this town hall? Wake up America!

Tim Bishop (D-NY) comes out of his solitude to hold a townhall! 8/27…

Our previous posts on Tim Bishop here. He is my mom’s Critter. He does not respond to contact from his constituents in any way. He is incredibly condescending which is evident in the videos of the last townhall brouhaha at our previous posts...Bishop you will recall, actually called for a police escort because he was afraid of 20 Long Island retirees who had American flags and good questions…they were rightfully pixxed that he voted for cap and trade against their express wishes…

Via Moe at RedState:

mark your calendar if you’re in NY-01: Bishop has scheduled an in-district town hall for health care! On August 27th, which is about as late as you can get:

On Thursday, August 27 at 6:30pm, Congressman Tim Bishop will host a Town Hall meeting at Brookhaven Town Hall, located at 1 Independence Hill in Farmingville. The meeting is open to all members of the public. Constituents may ask the Congressman about any issue.

I’d note what important things Tim Bishop’s doing up until that point that would prevent him from having a town hall before two more weeks have passed, except that he hasn’t listed any.

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!

Tim Bishop D-NY Town Hall, Protest

Via RedState, I have a particular interest in Bishop since he is my mom’s Critter and he routinely votes the opposite of how his constituents would like him to:

Despite being totally slammed by constituents Bishop proudly admits the Cap and Trade intent. Watch the interaction that takes place at about 3 min 50 sec into the video on cap and trade.

Congressman Tim Bishop has been a Rubber Stamp for Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank and the rest of the Washington elitists who want to tax and spend this nation to death. Some angry taxpayers had a little surprise for him at one of his “Town Hall” meetings on June 22, 2009.
