Well, well. Republican U.S. Rep. Rick Crawford brought a claque to clap down tough questioners to a town hall meeting yesterday in Jonesboro, but the questioners got through and the Blue Arkansas blog was on hand with video to record a most uncomfortable session for Crawford.
His defense of his vote to end Medicare as guaranteed single-payer health coverage and his vote to cut taxes on the rich was lacking. He doesn't think too quickly on his feet. Blue Arkansas reports that he tucked tail and left early. He said at one point that he wouldn't vote to raise the debt ceiling. But he also said he wouldn't allow U.S. obligations to go into default. Which side are you on Rick Crawford? Personally, we know he's willing to take the bankrupt route, but the state of an entire economy didn't rest on his decision to skip on his bills.
May a new brand of Tea Party emerge to hold people like Crawford accountable in 2012.
I've posted just one of several video clips, but I'd recommend checking the Blue Arkansas link for commentary on the event.
