    White House: Town Hall Anger "Manufactured"

    Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas, tells ABC News that there's nothing authentic about the protests Democratic congressmen are experiencing all over the country.

    "This notion of a grass-roots campaign is totally and completely phony," Doggett said. "The Republican Party has coordinated this apparent outrage and stirred it up."

    The White House made a similar charge earlier today, saying much of the anger was "manfactured."

    But Max Papas, an official from FreedomWorks, which is run by corporate lobbyist and former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, says his organization's role in organizing some protestors is almost beside the point

    "Those inside the Beltway need to know that you can't fake this sort of outrage outside the Beltway," said Papas. "It only happens when they are very concerned about what is going on inside of Washington, and it's a clear sign that people are very concerned.

    I saw it, but even I can only do so much. Fighting Megi's Ignorance would be a full time job, and the pay would be abysmal.
