There is a short distance between ignoring the electorate's discontent and stifling it, and the Dems will soon have to resort to the latter...

I'm sure this will play out good for the Dems running for re-election in tough races. "I care about my voters. I care so much I wouldn't meet with them cause I don't want to take the heat for the votes I made on their behalf."

Yup, as a matter of fact the Tea Partiers may just need the ACLU. With all that power Bush gave to the Federal govt and executive branch that suspended rights, that's stuff now is going to be used on us. Because Obama isn't turning back any of it but will expand on it to come after those who admire their Founders. Look at what Lieberman, Schumer and that war mongering tarpite Graham is trying pass.

Quite comparable to the fact that America would be better if its government would control these situations.

I think in the era of 24 hour Youtube that campaign managers are reticent to allow that type of exposure, lest their candidate have a George Allen-styled "Macacca" moment.

I don't think that makes it right, though. They should be able to meet face to face with constiuents, and not just the ones at the bank like this article, or those willing to sign "loyalty oaths" like for Bush in the last election cycle.

I agree with why they don't want to do this Town Halls. That being said, that is still no excuse. When you run for office you are obligated to represent all of your constituents. Not just the ones that like you. And if you can't take the heat of pissed off voters telling you they are pissed off then step the **** down.

FWIW, it WAS a bit of a confusing reply, since you re-iterated banyon's point...
