Democrats announce a public appearance by Congressman Glenn Nye at the local Democratic breakfast in Virginia Beach. Local citizens decide to plan to attend.
Can’t have that, say the Dems, who canceled Nye’s appearance.
“As we all know, our twice-monthly breakfast, always with a speaker, was never publicized as a Town Hall Meeting and was never intended to be such,” sayeth the so-called free speech Dems.
See, it was fine for the Democrats if Glenn Nye met with them in more of a closed setting and taking questions from local Democrat activists in the audience.
Once anyone else voiced an interest in attending, Beach Democrats shut it down.
After week after week of seeing Democratic bloggers recording speakers at the Republican breakfasts, it’s funny to see the Democrats so antsy about citizens who might want to ask their Congressman a question about socialized health care.
What’s the point of having Congressman Nye in the district if he’s not going to talk with voters?
