Anybody who has an SS No. ought to be a bit concerned. When Bush holds “town hall meetings” to discuss what ought to happen with Social Security, he wants to ensure that only those who are willing to sign a blood oath of loyalty will be allowed in the room.
Hey, this is not a GOP fundraiser or even an election year, yet somehow the Republicans feel that even in carrying out his duties as president all matters need to be handled in as highly partisan a manner as possible.
[quote]Three Denver residents yesterday charged that they were forcibly removed from one of President Bush’s town meetings on Social Security because they displayed a bumper sticker on their car condemning the administration’s Middle East policies.
The three, all self-described progressives who oppose Bush’s Social Security plan, said an unidentified official at an event in Denver last week forced them to leave before the president started to speak, even though they had done nothing disruptive, said their attorney, Dan Recht.
This is not the first time people have complained about heavy-handed monitoring of who can attend – and speak at – Bush’s events promoting his Social Security plan. A newspaper in Fargo, N.D., reported that when Bush came to the city on Feb. 3, more than 40 residents were barred from attending the event. [/quote]
As long as you disagree with even one of the president’s foreign policy ideas, it’s clear that the GOP considers you an enemy of the nation, unfit to be present at a “town hall” discussion of Social Security issues.
