Youngstown congressman cancels meeting when protesters appear Wednesday, March 31, 2010 10:02 AM

THE (YOUNGSTOWN) VINDICATOR

YOUNGSTOWN -- A congressman canceled an informational meeting on the new health care law because of security concerns.

Democratic U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan scheduled the meeting yesterday in Youngstown but called it off because his office was concerned about inadequate security.

About 15 demonstrators, including Tea Party members, had showed up to protest the wide-ranging health care overhaul signed into law last week.

Ryan's office says the meeting wasn't intended as a political forum and will be rescheduled.

KEYWORDS: obamacare; timryan; wuss; youngstown
This is Traficant's former seat. He would have voted no, and even if he hadn't, he would have argued with 1500 protesters. Ryan is afraid of 15.

It was informational and not a "forum". Got it?

And then toss in some paranoid partisan hysteria about "adequate security".

And the Left STILL claims that McCarthyism was unfounded even after proof of Soviet influence had been uncovered. Fight the smears.

15 angry old farts with posters, and he’s skeered

And since when is any public meeting not a “political forum”

He expected to read them the obama talking points while they said “Thank You Sir may we have another””

These dems can run but they can’t hide- unless he intends to campaign from a TV screen like the wizard of Oz

This is the first of many excuses for Representatives to hide from there constituents. They are quite aware they done us dirty, and do not wish to be confronted on it.

Not just rank and file, either. I ran into my Democrat/on the doll/full ride public assistance neighbors today, and I fully expected them to be behind healthcare reform. They were as depressed and worried as hell. More so than I have ever seen them. Even the CNN/welfare crowd knows it is screwed. There may yet be hope.

It’s funny, my libinlaw was acting really nervous this past week, avoiding talking to us, etc.

I’m not even sure if she understands that it’s not “free healthcare” yet or not.

Healthcare reform is one bill even the far left non-politician liberals are paying close attention to. There are no doubt a few that still think it’s going to be free healthcare—I think Rush was talking about such a case last week—but most have realized it is a disaster in the making. Why the polls aren’t even worse I don’t know. Finding somebody who likes this thing is harder than winning the lottery.

About 15 demonstrators, including Tea Party members...

Just how does one become a "Tea Party member?" This media template is becoming obvious. We should not play into their hands. The phenomenon of ordinary citizens demanding their constitutional liberties should be called "The Patriot Movement" and not the Tea Party. This is no political party.

This is great news!

As Thomas Jefferson once said, “When the people fear the government you have tyranny, when the government fears the people you have liberty.”

Sounds like liberty is just around the corner.

He also said, “When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes required.”

Somewhere out there is the DNC/Center for American Progress/MoveOn strategy memo outlining this entire campaign to create a false impression about opposition to Obamacare, trash the Tea Party movement, hide from critics and constituents as is the case here, and probably most importantly, change the subject away from Obamacare to anything else.

Notice also the timing of the trip to Afghanistan, the announcement today on offshore drilling, the signing yesterday of the reconciliation bill where the emphasis was not on health care, but on student loans. They want to talk about anything BUT Obamacare.

Traficant should run as a Republican ! If he runs as an independent, he would split the non-democrat vote !

"The Patriot Movement"

The libs would automatically tie that to The Patriot Act.

It was billed as “an informational meeting on the new health care law”.

But the cowardly Congressman's lying lackeys said “the meeting wasn't intended as a political forum”.

By showing up. There is no way to avoid being the target of Liberal lies.

We're not 'playing into their hands' unless we stay home.
