    The journalist ejected from an event where CNN political analyst April Ryan was the keynote speaker appeared exclusively on "The Ingraham Angle" on Wednesday night, saying he was injured by Ryan's body guard just for filming the event. "I don't know what what the misunderstanding was but I was definitely, you know, felt violated," Charlie Kratovil, an editor for New Brunswick Today, told guest host Jesse Watters. Kratovil was covering a speech given by Ryan at the 4th annual New Jersey Parent Summit, which focuses on "educating, empowering and preparing parents for our future leaders," on Aug. 3 at The...

    The audience was loud but civil—and their anxiety over health reform was very real. As he entered the auditorium of the Mardela Middle and High School on Tuesday, a surprised Frank Kratovil waded through a sea of constituents. The first-term Democratic congressman had been told by aides that maybe two or three dozen residents would attend the “Congress in Your Corner” town-hall event in this Eastern Shore town of about 360 people. Instead, more than 250 people showed up. The crowd repeatedly burst into wild cheering, but not for Mr. Kratovil. The cheers were for residents who gave the congressman...

    Here is bizarre video of Democrat Congressman Frank Kratovil of Maryland answering a question by a young boy who was concerned about the Health Care of his grandfather. Red State reports the boy asked: A young boy in the crowd asks the Congressman, “My grandfather is a retire war veteran. What are you going to do to make sure he is cared for with Health Care?” Instead of answering the boy's question, the congressman talked about -- suicide. He reportedly rambled on about the danger of suicide among returning soldiers without ever answering the boy's question. . . . ....

    here were no lobbyist-funded buses in the parking lot of Mardela Middle and High School on Tuesday evening, and the hundreds of Eastern Maryland residents who packed the school’s auditorium loudly refuted the notion that their anger over the Democrats’ health care reform plans is “manufactured.” “I went to school in this school,” a man named Bob told me. “I don't see anyone in this room that isn't from Mardela Springs right now.” “We’ve been quiet too long,” said a woman named Joan. They came to yell at their congressman, freshman Democratic Rep. Frank Kratovil, and they were surprised to...

  • Democrats Say Angry Protesters Won't Derail Health-Care Town Halls

    President Obama and top Democrats on Wednesday vowed to push back against angry critics of their health-care overhaul, who have threatened to hijack the debate by purposefully disrupting town halls and other public events convened by Democratic lawmakers this week. The leader of House Republicans responded by saying that "Democrats are in denial" in dismissing the objections as a fringe movement, "instead of acknowledging the widespread anger millions of Americans are feeling this summer." Conservative groups opposed to the health-care plan have asked their supporters to flood public gatherings featuring members of Congress. From Pennsylvania to Texas to Wisconsin, Democrats...

    With freshman Rep. Frank Kratovil’s (D-Md.) conservative Eastern Shore district near the top of the Republican target list next year, Maryland state Sen. Andy Harris aims to avenge what turned out to be one of the most disappointing losses of 2008 for the GOP. But he might not be alone. Sources say state Sen. E.J. Pipkin is also leaning toward entering the primary for a second-straight cycle, and former state House Minority Leader Al Redmer told The Hill on Monday that he too could run against Harris.

    The handful of the House's Blue Dog Democrats who switched their votes from "no" to "yes" on the huge economic stimulus are working overtime this week in their conservative-leaning districts to explain the change of heart. None more so than freshman Rep. Frank Kratovil Jr., whose reversal on President Obama's $787 billion bill secured him a top spot on the Republican Party's list of vulnerable Democrats targeted for defeat in 2010. Fending off criticism that the Democrat-led Congress loaded the bill with unnecessary spending, Mr. Kratovil will be out every day of this week's holiday break touring his sprawling Maryland...
