The Unfortunate Dan Webster Town Hall

C’mon guys, we’re better than this. Have a look.

After I was done watching this, I was worried and I was worried for everybody.

Democrats and Republicans, from all walks of life. All Americans.

When you can’t let your elected representative get through one minute of his presentation before disrupting him. When you start getting in the face of your fellow countrymen, when you walk into a forum and have decided what your opinion of the info given is going to be, before the first word is ever spoken.

That’s how we get weaker.

Alright, I understand. You don’t like the policies, you are a Democrat and you feel the way Republicans felt this time two years ago. You see, it was Alan Grayson time back in 09′ and he didn’t even let his naysayers in the building.

Dan Webster let his critics in, and it turned into a circus, a reason to cater your audience to your message and when that happens, groups feel left out.

It was unfortunate…no it was a tragedy. Central Florida looked bad today.

So, what are we going to do to change it?

  1. […] news making conflict in the blitzkrieg like initiative was an ambush during, the last stop on a tour of town halls for D-8 Rep. Dan Webster. Planted activists in the audience began to shout down at the congressman just minutes after he […]

  2. Unfortunately extreme actions tend to produce extreme re-actions.

  3. Yeah but, Dan Webster is as about as extreme as a luke-warm cup of tea. This isn’t a fire baller, like Alan West down south, or even Alan Grayson before him. If there is a rational argument behind opposition of his policy, he’ll listen.

  4. […] the State campaign will continue the aggressive activities taken by liberals, that has included townhall outbursts and zombies walking the […]
