Senator Landrieu Closes Office: Constituents Turned Away at the Door, Callers Reach Only Busy Signals

December 22, 2009

FRC's Tony Perkins Calls Closure the "Height of Arrogance"

Baton Rouge, LA - This afternoon, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins attempted to deliver a letter to Senator Mary Landrieu's Baton Rouge office only to be told by a federal marshal that her offices were "closed for the holidays." Over 150 concerned citizens joined Perkins at a rally in front of Senator Landrieu's office to urge the Senator to oppose the government takeover of health care.

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins made the following comments:

"We were stunned to discover why so many phone calls have been unanswered and met with continuous busy signals. As the Senate debates one of the most far reaching pieces of legislation in history, it's shocking that Senator Mary Landrieu would close her office to phone calls and visitors.

"Senator Landrieu sent press aides to offer the Senator's spin on the health care bill but she did not make a staffer available to receive letters or answer phone calls. Senator Landrieu knows that almost two thirds of Louisiana voters oppose the health care overhaul. However, refusing to take their phone calls is insulting and the height of arrogance.

"If Senator Landrieu's office had been open, she would have heard a clear message that we want her to stop this abominable health care bill that will force every American to support Planned Parenthood in the killing of unborn children, saddle families with higher insurance premiums, raise our taxes and deny our parents and grandparents the essential health care they need."

She opens the door, she gets dragged out and thrown into some kind of humilating and awkward display.

Say like an iron cage suspended over the street.

Which probably beats being tarred and feathered and ridden out of town on a rail.

What a wonderful woman of the people. I guess she is at home counting her winnings. She knew she was dead meat anyway, now she has a nice golden parachute to land with. I wonder how much money she gets to pocket? Maybe President Palin’s AG can investigate and find out for us? Sleep tight Senator for tomorrow you will reap the whirlwind, SKANK.

You people elected her, and most likely will again, she sold her vote so now you know just what she really is all about.

“Clue”, It has NOTHING to do with the voters who but her there, NOTHING.

Caller to the Howie Carr show said she tried to call John Kerry’s DC office. After many rings a message said to try later. Sounds like he pulled the plug on the phone. @sshat....

Well, I have sent some emails to my senators; as far as I can tell, I’m being ignored.

Early on, I also wrote to my representative. I even tried calling him. My email was returned as “undeliverable” (hard for me to figure out since the email was done as a form on his website), his voice mail was full and no one answered the phone. I just sent him another email pleading to his sense of decency (yeah, right) and urging him to represent everyone, not just a few, in voting against this monstrosity.

Let’s see if I get another “undeliverable” notice or if he just simply blows me off.

That is the question.
Why were Federal marshals there to begin with?
There were so threats or angry crowds.

They think they can get away with this.
they are for now but not forever

I agree with all the comments on this topic, except to say one thing: They elected her. Maybe those furious with her didn't vote for this whore, but I'll bet many of their family and some of their friends probably did. This is where they need to direct their wrath. I've done this with those in my family who voted for Obama. They are totally out of my will. If I should pass before my time, these fools will be out of 6 figure inheritances. That's a change they can believe in.

They should have known what she was like after Katrina. Yes those good people of Louisiana are outraged but they voted for her.

Remember that old story about the scorpion and the frog. When the frog is bitten by the scorpion and realizes they are both going to die, he asks the scorpion why he bit him. The scorpion tells the frog it's because he was a scorpion and the frog should have know this.

The voters of Louisiana need to do something rather than bitch about Senator Landreiu. She's a scumbag who has done nothing but serve in public office her whole life. She has never had a real job I don't think. So they need to turn up the heat on her. They need to dog her everywhere she goes in the state and make her life as miserable as possible. Then they need to relegate her to the ash heap of Louisiana politics in the next election.

This and only this will help the situation.

“They are totally out of my will. “

***

That works IF you have an inheritance.

The joke in my family is that when one of us ies, the others should turn him upside down. Any loose change that falls out of his pocket is their inheritance.

Ben Nelson came to the Senate floor a little while ago to “explain” the corrupt Nebraska deal. He was a complete, stammering fool. There is no explanation except that it was a corrupt political deal. He kept huffing and puffing because in ridiculing the deal someone had made an incidental reference to Omaha Steaks. “You don’t stand on this floor and insult one of Nebraska’s great companies” [approximate quote] Nelson kept saying...because he had nothing else to say that made any sense whatsoever. What a fool.

The point is to make people aware that there are consequences for their actions. Many people in my family were stunned when I announced this. They were speechless!

But I've seen the danger of what can happen when idiots get an inheritence. Now my assets are very small compared to the big money. But everyone here is aware of the damage done by liberal idiots when they get an inheritence and start to cause trouble because they don't have to worry about the stupidity of their actions. These people are VERY destructive. I think people should be VERY POLITICAL with their wealth. This is where the the liberals are miles ahead of us. This has worked to their advantage.

IF I had a college age student that I was supporting and I knew they were supporting Obama, that would be it for the financial support. They are over 18 and on their own. That's how strongly I feel about it. My father did the same thing with me. It was made clear that if I got arrested for Drugs (or anything else) while away at college, the money train would stop. I'd be on my own. He meant it and I knew it. I stayed out of trouble. This was the biggest favor he ever did for me. I thanked him for it years later and often until he left us.

Many will be horrified by this but I don't think it's unreasonable. This lunatic (Obama) is desperately trying to destroy our country and I'll be damned if a give a nickle to anyone who is supporting him. I encourage everyone else to do the same.

Isn’t Mary a 3rd generation pork-sucking, money grabbing, corrupt by association politician?

Seems like Illinois, Nevada and louisiana are in a three way fight for which state is the most corrupt!!!

All 535 members of Congress had better watch their backs for the foreseeable future...they are in real trouble.

The only non-violent solution I can come up with is there needs to be a massive march on DC where the People occupy government buildings and take back control of the government. A new Declaration of Independence with a new list of grievances should be given, and then the politicians should be evicted from the premises. Then immediate reversal of legislation for the past year.

John of Leiden kind of treatment.

Not completely inappropriate given the parallels between the historic figure and Moon Baby’s arrogance and desire to control all aspects of our lives.

Included with all the other plots this administration has succeeded in or attempted, their blatant arrogance to push this government health care monster on every American, EXCEPT THEMSELVES, is positively sickening.

A caller to Sean Hannity's radio program, Tues., Dec. 22, suggested that Fox should be highlighting this fact 50 times a day. IOW, keep the drum beat going all day, every day. The slime bags in DC will be outraged but they can't deny it nor justify it.

As the caller pointed out, they are OUR servants; we're not theirs, but they treat us like we are.

Just as conscientious objectors are recognized in the U.S. regarding fighting in wars, those of us who object to supporting abortions are also conscientious objectors.

How can we make sure, really sure, that none of our tax money is used for abortions?

Kathleen Sibelius has already assured us that it most certainly will be.

This bill will ration healthcare for citizens, while paying in full for the slaughter of babies.

All who object to killing unborn babies should not be forced by law to go against their conscience. We have the right to refuse to pay even a penny of our taxes to fund abortions.
