If they have nothing to hide...

Why are they hiding from the rank and file voters? The GOPers keep claiming they're pursuing their economy destroying policies under the mandate of those who elected them. But if that was true why is GOP Goldenboy Paul Ryan avoiding his working class constituents?
It will cost $15 to ask Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) a question in person during the August congressional recess.

The House Budget Committee chairman isn’t holding any face-to-face open-to-the-public town hall meetings during the recess, but like several of his colleagues he will speak only for residents willing to open their wallets.
You can also add Ben Quayle and Chip Cravaack to the list who aren't holding open town halls.

And then there's Boehner's Boy's Club. Only male lobbyists are invited to join and get to surrepitiously gain the House Speaker's ear on the links at the exclusive men-only golf club. The article doesn't say whether he's planning to hold any any open forums for "the little people" but one suspects he won't. They all say they'll still hold office hours by appointment and anyone is free to come in and be politely deflected by their staffers.

Meanwhile the Weekly Standard (no, not linking and not clicking over myself) says Ryan is "strongly considering" jumping into the clown car. Also, too, some other wingnut site suggests Palin and Christie haven't completely ruled out donning the red rubber nose and strapping on the ole clown shoes themselves. Never has an analogy between the Republican field and a three ring circus felt more appropriate.
