White House Vows to Defend Democrats on Health Reform, Will 'Punch Back Twice as Hard'
"Rhambo Chicago Thug Style Politics with Obama's Union Thugs Attacking Town Hall Protesters !"
WASHINGTON -- Top White House officials counseled Democratic senators Thursday on coping with disruptions at public events on health care this summer, officials said, and promised the party and allies would respond with twice the force if any individual lawmaker is criticized in television advertising.
These officials also told skittish senators that fresh polling suggests an emphasis on issues such as barring insurers from denying coverage on the basis of pre-existing medical conditions is a political winner, able to increase support among independents, women, seniors and rural voters.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity, saying they were not authorized to discuss details of the closed-door session that took place hours before lawmakers headed to their home states for a monthlong vacation.
In the week since the House began its own break, several town hall-style meetings have been disrupted by noisy demonstrators. These episodes have drawn widespread media attention, and Republicans have seized on them as well as polls showing a decline in support for President Barack Obama and his agenda as evidence that public support is lacking for his signature legislation.
Pushing back, Democrats have accused Republicans of sanctioning mob tactics, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., accused protesters of trying to sabotage the democratic process.

This looks bad, because the base of the democrat party is the lowest socioeconomic rung of society with no jobs, no work ethic, and a very vested interest in getting everything for free... And probably already has a criminal record... So it they rally these folks to come to town halls, instead of intelligent protest and dialogue, you'll have thuggery akin to the Black Panthers that were filmed standing outside polling places during the election... Conservatives don't like jail, and they won't usually resort to violence, but the same can't be said for the base of the Democrat party that votes Democrat because it's the party of free stuff...
