    Congressman /Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy Talks About the Debt, Fields Questions from Bakersfield Tea Party Patriots at Bakersfield Townhall Meeting (Video). On Saturday, June 11, Kevin McCarthy joined the Bakersfield Tea Party for a Townhall meeting. About 75 patriots were on hand for breakfast and an opportunity to ask direct questions about the budget, debt ceiling, energy dependence, our nation's continued involvement in Libya, and other current issues and concerns. As the Majority Whip, McCarthy is the person who is tasked with gauging and building consensus within the Republican House. His unique role in Congress afforded the Tea Party an...

  • Rep. Allen West faces tough questions at town hall in Pompano Beach

    05/18/2011 5:00:20 AM PDT · by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid! · 52 replies ^ | May 17, 2011 | Anthony Man, Sun Sentinel
    Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, delivered a vintage performance Tuesday — full of confidence, never backing down — even when facing a somewhat restive audience posing sometimes hostile questions. Judging from the applause, most of the town hall audience of about 300 at the Pompano Beach Civic Center was supportive of West. And when several people who didn't like the congressman, what he was saying, or the format interrupted with shouts from the floor, the majority's displeasure was clear. Anne Deon, of Fort Lauderdale, repeatedly yelled out a demand that Congress increase taxes on big corporations and people in the crowd...

  • Anger over RyanCare now overshadowing ObamaCare

    Dan Webster would be hard-pressed to make himself heard in a library. So the soft-spoken congressman didn't have a chance Tuesday when his town-hall meeting turned into a political food fight. It seems liberal activists learned a lesson from the tea party. They came; they shouted; they disrupted. It worked for the tea party in attacking Democrats over ObamaCare. And it is working for liberals in attacking Republicans over RyanCare. The Webster town hall was covered by National Public Radio and reported not only on our front page but also on the front page of The New York Times.We love...

    The left will have to do better than this. Not only is West predictably unperturbed by the heckling but the crowd is overwhelmingly on his side. You’d think progressives would be out in force to try to embarrass a tea-party all-star, but no. In fact, see the woman being hauled away by security at the end? That’s Nicole Sandler, formerly of … Air America. When the big dissident presence at a rally is a host from a defunct radio network, you’ve got yourself an optics problem.Read this Andrew Stiles post at NRO arguing that the public might be more open...

    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 online as The Shark Tank, police charged Sandler, who revealed her name on camera, with trespassing after they removed her from the event and she “continued her tirade and used an expletive to address a police officer.” With Air America now defunct, Sandler hosts a self-described “progressive talk radio” show at

    A town hall meeting held in Orlando by U.S. Rep. Dan Webster degenerated into bedlam Tuesday, with members of the crowd shouting down the freshman Republican congressman and yelling at one another. It was the last of a series of town hall meetings Webster has hosted during Congress' spring recess, which ends Monday. While the others were civil and largely uneventful, the 300 people at Tuesday's meeting were so raucous they were scolded by a police officer to act "like grown people." Webster tried to go over a series of charts showing growing levels of federal spending and debt, and...

    Obama Facebook Event Goes 'Unavailable' After Conservatives Flood It With ‘Repeal Obamacare’ Posts Thursday, April 21, 2011 By Fred Lucas ( – On Wednesday, President Barack Obama’s town hall meeting on Facebook was “unavailable” to viewers for 39 minutes after it was flooded with comments by a conservative group’s “online army” demanding that the president “repeal Obamacare,” the administration’s health care reform law enacted in March of last year. For 39 minutes during the president’s “Shared Responsibility and Shared Prosperity” Facebook event, a screenshot displayed the message: “Event Unavailable.

    Despite the promise that President Obama's first Facebook town hall would open a new level of two-way communication with his constituents, social-networking technology didn't add much to the conversation. Obama answered just eight questions during Wednesday's hour-long session at Facebook's secondary headquarters building in Palo Alto Facebook employees who won a company lottery for the chance to sit in the live audience. That left hundreds of questions posted on the event's Facebook wall unanswered. Judging from comments posted on Facebook after the event, viewers noticed. "Not bad, but not great," wrote Rose Berendes. "How could there not have been a...

    Congratulations to former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin who won the March Townhall/HotAir Straw Poll with 16.91% of the vote! For the second straight month Texas Congressman Ron Paul came in right behind her, this time amassing 16.02%. The results are starting to get really close in comparison to the previous months. Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann was the mover and shaker this month, gaining 1.47 percentage points. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie saw the biggest decrease in support, losing 1.42 percentage points. The second biggest decrease come from the winner Sarah Palin at 1.23 percentage points.

    I had the chance to sit in tonight on a blogger conference call with potential 2012 Presidential candidate Herman Cain. It shouldn’t surprise any long-time readers of The Shack when I say I’m a fan of Cain’s as a candidate and as a person. Though he has yet to announce his candidacy, he has formed an exploratory committee and has visited several of the early primary and caucus states to gauge interest in a run and to lay some groundwork if he decides to do so. I had hoped to connect to the call with Skype and record it, so...

    Allen West Backs Hard Choices At First Town HallBy Greg Allen Updated: 6 hours ago Members of the House are back in their home districts through next week. For freshman representatives, it's their first chance to report back and hear from their constituents. In Deerfield Beach, Fla., this week, Republican congressman and Tea Party firebrand Allen West held his first town meeting. But for the many West supporters who attended, it had the feel of a victory rally. More than 300 people gave West a standing ovation when he arrived at the South Florida Bible College. West began by holding...

    PHOENIX — One of the Arizona shooting victims was arrested today and then taken for a psychiatric evaluation after authorities said he took a picture of a tea party leader at televised town hall meeting and yelled: "you're dead." James Eric Fuller, 63, objected to something Trent Humphries said during the forum taped for a special edition of ABC's "This Week" with Christiane Amanpour, Pima County sheriff's spokesman Jason Ogan said. Fuller was in the front row and apparently became upset when Humphries suggested that any conversations about gun control should be delayed until all the dead were buried, KGUN-TV...
