Want to hear Dick Armey's response to violence at town halls?

Rachel Maddow appeared on "Meet the Press" for the first time on Sunday, August 16th. On a panel with former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.), former House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-Texas), and Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), the MSNBC host more than held her own.

When Armey said he took no responsibility whatsoever"for the virulent protests against President Obama and compared it to running an ad comparing President Bush to Hitler, Maddow pointed out that that never actually happened. Later she elaborated, pointing out that major conservative groups had speakers going around the country comparing Obama to Hitler Pol Pot and Stalin and asking supporters to put the fear of God in their congresspeople. When Armey said that he denounced violence, Maddow pointed out that his organization FreedomWorks, was in a coalition whose website was promoting the violent fight at a Tampa town hall as a good thing.

  • Rachel Maddow is an idiot who doesn't understand that a living will has to be written before a person is terminally ill and not at the time of death. She thinks that you can counsel families about a living will when it is time for hospice to come in. The dying can't take part at that time which means it isn't a living will. I dislike her as much as some of you dislike Beck.

  • You mean this never happened?

    Rachael Maddow obviously doesn't know what she is talking about. As for the town halls, You would have to be blind (or only watch the loser stations) to think these are engineered by anyone. They started out with people who care about what is going on in their world. They want government to stop spending money and they don't want socialist government healthcare. The libs seem to forget the only reason they are having these town halls is because ordinary people stood up and said NO MORE! They had no choice but to wait till after break or lose their jobs.
