Staff held Jim Moran back from protesters.
Politico ^ | 3/24/10 | Jonathan Allen

Posted on 03/26/2010 6:25:30 PM PDT by GSP.FAN

Moran, a thickly built Virginian with a temper that runs hot on occasion, was summoned from his inner office by the noise of angry protesters interacting with his staff, according to the congressman's account.

He confronted the protesters, prompting staff to step between them and the activists to ask whether Moran needed "bodyguards" to protect him.

"We're not protecting him from you, we're protecting you from him," a staffer explained.

Moran was just looking for a 10-year-old boy he could beat up.

Jim likes to drink. He likes women. He likes to bully people. He takes campaign funds from people with AlQaida associations.

Someday he's going to run into somebody who will simply kill him ~ and probably for no reason at all.

Moran, a thickly built Virginian New Yorker . . .

Jim Moran is NOT from Virginia. Someone owes the Commonwealth a big apology.

“As always its the liberals who resort to violence.”

Also, the protesters were called activists in the article...I wonder if they were left wing radicals. I suspect if they were conservative more information would have been given.

I bet, than in Barry’s quite alone moments, he really wonders what the hell is going on. Once the con job of the election was over, it was going to be smooth sailing to utopia. He isn’t deep enough to understand that real people will never buy what he’s selling. And this country has far more real people than he imagined.

Rep.Gerry Connolly (RAT-VA) did the same thing. . .only more weaselly. He verbally assaulted a woman, called her a terrorist and when she informed him strongly, but not rudely, that she did not like being called a terrorist by her Congressman. . .the little weeny ran down the hall and retrieved the Capitol police to have her arrested.

I told his staff that it was a most cowardly display: the elected representative of the people turning on his own constituents because they didn't agree with his position. I also told them to start getting their resumes together because their boss is gone in November.

Uh uh....in the gilded cage, he doesn't have - nor does he want - those "quiet alone moments"...............he's too busy tossing off over having overcome Hillabeast, and being a black mohammedan commander in chief. What could be better??

He’s a real tough guy with the Capitol Police around but if he stepped outside like a real man with no police around and no threat of arrest hanging over the head of the protesters, we would see just how tough he really is. That’s why these weasals can do what they do because they have that ever present security but if they were to settle it in the gentlemanly fashion of years gone by they wouldn’t be nearly so “tough.” A lot of them will be “retired” soon and without taxpayer paid security they might need to pay for their own bodyguards.

So, Moran thinks he is one bad dude. Just another delusional libtard politician,but, then I repeat myself. The idiot is gonna get his innards rearranged one of these days when he starts something with somebody he thinks it is safe to bully.

I don’t think Libs REALLY want to resort to violence....That would be pretty dumb, since they are “winning” by misusing/abusing the system. Big talk after the fact. Anyone else think they are “fanning the flames” to provoke US into reacting violently “first?”

I end up in local restaurants with Moran all the time. He's a punk. Little bit taller than the average guy but a punk nonetheless. His muscle mass is wasting ~ partly due to age, but mostly due to drink and probably STDs.

There are Democrats around here who love him ~ on the other hand when I've seen him and Canoli in the same restaurant, they don't speak. I don't think Canoli's beard likes him at all.

Moran is certifiable and only gets off when he can beat up his wife and little black kids who touch his car.
One priest in his district refused to give him communion which caused Moran to lose it after Mass...
that priest = hero

Next time he’s in the restaurant say under your breath but loud enough for him to hear “There’s a faggot if I’ve ever seen one”. That’s what I said for Bill Maher to hear. The little short but big nosed avocado eatin’ weasle. Of course, feel free to write your own lanquage.

Both these guys have made use of the Secret Service to get an ID on me. When I come in and sit down within their site they start staring at me like they fear me.

I love it.

I'm always peaceful and nice, and I'd never let either of them touch me for a handshake.

I usually insert a "Leftwingtard" into the conversations.

In April 2000, Moran said he was threatened by an eight-year-old boy who tried to take the congressman’s car keys by pretending he had a gun. In front of witnesses, Moran angrily carried the boy from a parking lot to a recreation center, where police interviewed both. No charges were filed against the boy or Moran.

Remember that website that had pictures of a whole bunch of abortionists with the dead ones "X"ed through? There were several of them who were killed by robbers in neighborhoods known for really cheap but sleazy beer joints.

That's what Moran does ~ plus he goes after cheap hamburgers on Monday Hamburger night.

Last time I ran into him he wasn't drinking but he kept giving me the hard stare.

Least I could do for him. That likker is frosting his liver Fur Shur.

Jim Moran only beats up 8 year old black kids. And his wife.

The culturally superior Arlington and Alexandria d-bags love him for it.

Here. I remember that also.

I recall that some accounts say that Moran got pretty rough with the kid.
