White house will "punch back twice as hard"

Top White House officials counseled Democratic senators Thursday on coping with disruptions at public events on health care this summer, officials said, and promised the party and allies would respond with twice the force if any individual lawmaker is criticized in television advertising. Democrats have accused Republicans of sanctioning mob tactics, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., accused protesters of trying to sabotage the democratic process.

OMFREAKINGOD! SERIOUSLY!? This drives me nutty! So when the Dems show up and degrade and shout down our service boys at Berkley, its freedom of speech. When they followed Bush around and ranted at him about EVERY thought he MAY have had and every decision he made THEY were using their constitutional right to protest. But when conservatives and OTHERS do the SAME DANG THING. I don't care which side you are on this is WRONG.

  • The confusing part is the notion that people who went to the town hall meetings aren't real. How does this administration think his spokespeople can insult a huge segment of the population and not have outrage. The only pressure any representative should feel IS from the constituency. That's why they are called representative. They are there to represent/vote for the people of their district. They are not there to vote "their heart" or have their vote bought with campaign funding. If your representative doesn't vote the will of the people, FIRE HIM/HER asap and remind these people they serve by our will and not theirs. They begged for this job. Now, go do it correctly!

  • These people DO NOT care about anyone's health care!

  • They haven't seen "punch back hard" yet! I'm not the least bit afraid to tell them to their face that I think they're a bunch of MORONS taking this country and the freedoms we fight to protect up sh%% creek without a paddle! I won't keep quiet. They're just trying to bully the opposition once again. They typical, left wing rhetoric..."Shut up!" Well, this time, I'm telling THEM to SHUT UP! Quit sabotaging this country, and do the jobs they were elected to do, or get the HELL OUT!!

  • THEY were using their constitutional right to protest.
    Remember what happens in China when people protest??Do you want that here? This is something"both sides" should say it is our right to protest.
    DO NOT FORGET PEOPLE HAVE DIED TO GIVE US THE FREEDOM TO PROTEST.

  • Freedom. What an amazing thing.

    Smear tactics have been around since the dawn of time, and they really are the only thing politicians are good at.
