    •  Hehehe. Small world eh? (0+ / 0-)

      What happened at the event?  Did you get booed by others or looked on badly by Rick Crawford's base?

        That was back in 2011 when this doofus first got elected.   His guys were out in force and we had just a small band of our local lefty rabble rousers.  I tried to pin him down on why he voted to protect his own pay during the debt ceiling mess but not troop pay-he essentially called me a liar in response.  Then he and my friend Alan, the guy who pins him down with numbers in this got to going back and forth on taxes, Medicare, etc.  The woman that spoke up was the one that got them really riled, they tried to drown her out with applause.  Then someone asked him if we were going to default, he said no, then they asked if he would raise the debt ceiling, he said no, and then we all sat there bewildered as we tried to explain to this man that it was an either/or choice.  Eventually he got mad and stormed out 45 minutes early.  All in all it was a pretty fun day.
