Skip to comments.John Dingell Gets and Earfull at his Town Hall
Posted on 08/06/2009 7:43:05 PM PDT by Portnoy
I attended the John Dingell Town Hall on Health Care this evening in Romulus Michigan. The even was not promoted beforehand, yet more than 600 people showed up. The meeting was held in a room that only held 150 people. The first few rows were mostly Dingell Supporters, who, were NOT outside waiting with the rest of us. See my blog for more info.
Here is one of the videos:

It will backfire.
Here is a link..sorry, don’t know HTML very well:
All these arrogant politicians have to be told that are going to be voted OUT of office!!!
Truth to power! LOLOL
Thank you much Portnoy. Just watched from your link in the local forum.
The trouble is that Dingell is as bulletproof as it gets as far as his seat is concerned. He will do as he pleases.
“The first few rows were mostly Dingell Supporters, who, were NOT outside waiting with the rest of us.”
Such a standard and expected tactic. If only a republican would try this all heck would break loose and there would be special investigations.
We want AMERICA STRONG.
Old lady McCaskill coming to a town near me Aug. 10th. , but I will not to able to attend.
Some times when just a few drops from the river flows a new direction others will follow. Make it the thing to be anti-the candidate.
“He’s not what he used to be.” “He’s not representing us any more” to neighbors and friends.
Say it with authority and they’ll join you..Be a leader.....And remember to turn yourself in to the WH.
Good job - thanks for the post. 600 turned out! Excellent!
These congressional bastids have been lying for so long that no one believes anything they say any more. “Paid for by greater efficiencies and savings from fraud and waste.”
I don’t know how safe he is at this point. I’m seeing anger in Michigan that I’ve never seen before. My hardcore union uncle has started calling his Heroic Obama a word that I won’t use here.
I was also at this event. The parking lot was filled with cars, and many were forced to park on both sides of the street leading to the athletic center. This street is in a semi-rural area, so people were parking on the shoulder of the road. It is clear that this town hall meeting was attended by an audience far in excess of what is typical of such an event.
We stood in line for approximately 90 minutes, talking with others who had come out. The crowd was OVERWHELMINGLY against this healthcare boondoggle. Although it’s not a scientific measure, I’d estimate that it was about 10-1 against, as there were only a few isolated voices speaking in favor of Dingell’s plan. (according to the first page, he introduced it...)
In all, a very good sign. People are waking up, and we have to maintain and strengthen this enthusiasm. Although we couldn’t all make it inside to question Dingell, he had to know that we were there.
Many thanks for your efforts and those who showed up. Yup there trick tonight in tampa, MO and MI was to load it up with their SEIU, ACORN union buddies and let the PEASANTS and SERFS wait outside.
I can’t wait to confront my usless congressman here in North NJ. I have so many questions on health care I dont know where to start . Im behind enemy lines here so I’ll be lucky to get one quick question in. Anyone have suggestions for one really pointed question I can use to freak him out?
Now if you go to BARNEY FRANK’S meeting, you would probably see him get an earfull — LITERALLY!
Thanks for the repot and effort. Great that all these good people took the time to show up. Awesome.
Hopefully the NRA will finally decide to dump John “Two Gun” Dingell. He did a great job for auto union workers.
