“When they call the roll in the Senate, the Senators do not know whether to answer ‘present’ or ‘not guilty.'” –President Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919)
Roosevelt could just as well included the Democrats in the House of Representatives, and some RINOs who know that the Health Care plan they are trying to pass will cost more, limit choices and ration care, even though they all are mouthing the party line straight from the Obama insiders. They are equipped with a “canned” speech that is scripted to push the plan without answering any questions from those who question the specifics of the plan.

First speaker of the House Pelosi, called the people in Denver who asked questions at the Town hall meetings, “a mob carrying swastikas and symbols like that”. Then Obama said in Virginia; “I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess.”
And Barack Obama told a crowd of supporters in Philadelphia back in 2008, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” He added, “That’s the Chicago way.”Is that the Change we wanted?

Last night in St. Louis, Missouri, a local conservative found out firsthand about the “Chicago way.” Kenneth Gladney, a black conservative from the city, was handing out “Don’t Tread On Me” flags after a Russ Carnahan town hall meeting on health care in Mehlville. This didn’t go over well with the Obama supporters and union thugs who attended the meeting. They punched him in the face, kicked him in the head, and stomped on him on the pavement. So much for hope and change.

If that was not enough intimidation and character assassination of regular folks trying to get politicians to answer their questions, and when they were given the run around, got loud! This was said by White House deputy chief of staff, Jim Messina in a meeting with Democrat Senators who have to go home and face voters who are unhappy with Obamacare.
He told senators to do more prep work than usual for their public meetings by making sure their own supporters turn out.

Then he uttered this questionable statement despite the fact that there have been no reported violence at Town hall meetings up to now!
“If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard,” Messina said. And apparently the “heavys” at SEIU heard the call to action!

And as if by magic the Union thugs of SEIU and Acorn started showing up yesterday at scheduled health care town hall meetings.
In one meeting they beat up a Black man who was just selling buttons and flags.He ended up in the hospital.And at another meeting a man was ruffed up by large burly men who wore SEIU shirts in Tampa Florida.

In St.Louis six people were arrested at a demonstration Thursday evening outside a forum on aging called by U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan, D-St. Louis.

“Two of the people were arrested on suspicion of assault, one of resisting arrest and three on suspicion of committing peace disturbances, police say.

The forum drew an overflow crowd of several hundred to Bernard Middle School gym in south St. Louis County. Dozens of people, many carrying signs about the health care debate, were kept out because of the turnout. The back and forth between factions within the crowd created a carnival-like atmosphere inside and out between members of the movement opposing President Barack Obama’s policies and groups who came to show support for the president’s proposals.

The six people were arrested after confrontations outside the school, said county police spokesman Rick Eckhard. Carnahan was gone when the ruckus started, Eckhard said.

Post-Dispatch reporter Jake Wagman, who was covering the event and shooting video for, was arrested for interference”.
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the police showed up toward the end of the forum held by Democratic Rep. Russ Carnahan. One Black conservative(Kenneth Gladney) interviewed at a local emergency room where he was being treated for injuries, said he was attacked by some of the individuals, who were eventually arrested, as he was selling “Don’t tread on me” flags. He was hit in the face repeatedly and when he fell they kicked him in the head. He was interviewed last night on Neil Cavuto’s TV show, and said the people who hit him were SEIU members!

Ken Spain, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, called such remarks evidence that Democrats are “desperate to climb their way out of message quicksand.”

“Here’s some free advice for the Democrats: When you are attacking the voters, you are losing,” he said. “Conjuring up ‘villains’ and making elitist remarks about middle-class Americans isn’t a strategy, it’s a prayer. And I will add it is a prayer to the wrong Diety!
