    When someone makes themselves unavailable, except during time meant for other occasions, then it says something about that person.

    I have to disagree with that part, they do not deserve added respect from me or anyone else for that matter.

    They are not any better than I am and giving them added respect for no reason implies they are better than I.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    (although I'm not sure why you threw preachers in the mix. Most of them are crooks, but they're a more decent sort of crook than Congressmen.)
    So what you personally want should be the first thing any elected official thinks of? Should the president get a daily "What celticlord wants" briefing that he reads first? You are but one out of millions, you are not that special. You are a citizen that has no more and no less say than your fellow citizens, and many of them disagree with you, and they have a right to be heard no matter how much you feel that they are stupid and you should be king.

    unRepresentative Scott was arrogant, asinine, and inarticulate. He embarrassed himself and the Anti-Republicans with his mewling complaints about constituents asking questions. He can go cry someone else a river--he screwed the pooch on this one, and there's no amount of apologetics that can ever change that.
    He did answer the question completely and honestly. He then, when the guy continued to push the point, told him that this was not the time and place for that discussion, it was going to be on the 24th and 28th. He treated the questioner with more respect than he was treated. Of course, since he is a democrat, you will not be able to accept that, but that is the truth.

    The fact that the guy asking the question was asking about something that the meeting was not about, and misconstrued the rep's position, and continued to push the point made the questioner the asshole here, not rep. Scott.

    I see this as a perfect example of how unfit for office so many Congress people are. They are unable to think for themselves so they follow instructions or an outline for action given to them by Der Fuhrer in Chieif Obama or a Pelousy type and attack someone for asking a legitimate question and end up looking the fool. These Congresspeople should have either stayed home or taken the time to read at least some of the stupid Bill they voted for.
    The union thugs they are paying to threaten people will come back to haunt them since they already beat up one man.

    I don't think anyone was out line. The comments he made were directed at the group rather than the doctor and he seemed pissed that he got a health care reform question when they asked for questions on the topic at hand, a road project, he then told all the health care meeting was on another date in another place and gave information for the meeting.

    Make no mistake, the congressmen who will presumably be voting for the bill when it comes up know they are under attack by powerful interests do not be surprised when they act defensively or get upset when someone hands them a loaded question.

    The doctor in the video was very confrontational from the get go. Maybe he had a valid question but he chose the wrong venue and the wrong tone to ask it.
    Wrong venue? It's a townhall meeting.

    That would be incorrect. 'Libbos' neither endorse such behavior from themselves or others. If you're attempting to justify such behavior as acceptable simply because you view your political rivals as embracing that style of communication, then you're way off the mark. Face it, liberals and conservatives react in much the same way. Portraying liberals in general as purveyors of unruliness is nothing more than partisanship.

    Not really. While it may result in loss of seats in the Senate and House, and even Obama being elected out of office in 2012, the Democratic party will always be around in some form or fashion, thanks to liberals like myself.

    Of course, this is all speculation. I have no idea what will happen come the next election. Neither do you. But we can certainly take wild guesses!

    When he's standing in front of me, what I personally want should be the only thing on his mind. First, last, and every thought in between.

    It was a townhall meeting sponsored by some one other than the rep, and on a topic other than health care.
