Democrat Carnahan Dismisses Black Man at Townhall
Tuesday, July 21, 2009
Yesterday, I attended a townhall meeting on healthcare with Representative Russ Carnahan, where he dissed this black constituent. For those of you unfamiliar with Missouri politics, the new breed of Carnahans are those who are riding the backs of their deceased father and former Democrat governor of Missouri, Mel Carnahan. Voting 100% of the time with Obama, Russ Carnahan has the distinction of being left of Massachusetts’s Barney Frank.
I must say that Carnahan was as nervous as taxpayer in a room full of liberals! The standing room only crowd obviously rattled him. Carnahan made little eye contact as he likely expected an echo chamber, recognizing instead that he was in Dante’s Inferno.
The crowd was split about 60-40 against him is my read, and that ratio is larger if you removed all the people who were helping at the event who last names begin with “Carnahan!” Many attendees were people with severe disabilities, and they were there for answers, not platitudes.
After speeches by the interim president and the Chancellor of St. Louis University, Carnahan pretty much read the Democrat Party talking points on socialize healthcare. He painting a pretty picture of the utopia that awaits us, if we just accept socialized healthcare. Read the rest here...
