    Default RIP townhall meeting

    Given what is going on now, and that the left will react to what the right is doing, I suspect they will become entirely dysfunctional and as a result; rare.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    To be replaced by the prime time news conference. Obama has held 5 since taking office. Bush had 4 in his last 4 years. Bottomline town halls are a security nightmare for the Secret Service.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    That is for sure with the POTUS, but I mean even with members of Congress. The townhalls have devolved into partisan shout fests and as a result will go mostly extinct.

    It's my understanding the Republican members of Congress will be hosting several townhall meetings during their vacations. Unfortunately, if 200 Republicans host townhall meetings with very active enthusiastic constituents, the press won't cover it. If one Democrat hosts a townhall meeting and several constituents are rude to the Congressperson, the press will write a story about concerted effort to shout down the member of Congress.

    There is a difference between honest disagreement and discourse and just shouting down somebody. Now that the Democrats have decided to fight back there was a legitimate fight with several arrests last night. I am not sure that is really the function of a town hall meeting....... hense their demise.

    You mean like the townhall meeting where the Republican Congressman mentioned "lynching" and got a huge cheer.

    Maybe the reason Bush had so few news conferences was he couldn't quite get that "public speaking"-thing down....See clip.

    The raving lunatic right wingers (teabaggers) are just playing right into the Dems hands. I'm amazed the lunatics haven't shot any Dems yet. I'm sure that will happen.

    Army Fan thinks they are just expressing opinions. That cracks me up. The right wingers are blind to reality. Like I say, they need some serious mental help.
