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.
Oh, for Pete’s sake. Fifteen people?
I bet he had to go home and change his pink panties after he cancelled.
How can it not be considered a political forum? LOL
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.
A typical leftist pi$$ ant. Only a liberal could feel safer in DC!!!
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
It would have been a political forum, had the Tea Party not shown up. 15? I thought all these wimps had SEIU protectors. Call the Nazi Pelozi wambulance.
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.
I think I’m actually seeing this out of rank and file libs, as well -
they know they’ve really messed up the country this time.
LOL, I know! Absolutely absurd.
Profiles In Courage! /s
I think there are many who would want Traficant back The guy was a flake, but he had guts.
OMG this is hysterical. 15 protesters? Including-—GASP!-—Tea Party members? Those eeevil, racist, violent Tea Party members.
run commie run ... The politburo is a bunch of chickens.
“I think Im actually seeing this out of rank and file libs, as well -

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.
He voted as a conservative 85% of the time. I loved the guy.
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.
Our congresscritter, Ike skelton is so afraid, he won’t appear on local radio.
