Redneck revolt

This is my neck of the woods where all the hard core Republicans call themselves "independent conservatives" even though they consistently vote GOP and hate Obama. So Paddy McHenry's reception in the district is heartening:
Last night, Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) encountered an “agitated” town hall audience in his heavily Republican district.
They wanted to know when the hell he was going to do something about creating jobs and fixing the economy. They didn't like his answers much. Apparently he anticipated they wouldn't:
McHenry, who was flanked by 14 police officers for security purposes, said the turn out at the town halls in Kings Mountain was the highest its been since 2009.
Of course, in 2009 the crowd was friendlier and loving his proposal to put Ronnie Reagan on the $50 bill. Pretty sure he didn't have 14 cops escorting him to that one.

Think the Rabblublicans will ever figure out that the game is to make such a fuss about Obama that we will never notice who screwed everything up in the first place?

Nah. . .

I thought that was the game plan. Happily it appears to have stopped working. Hearing more reports about testy town meetings where voters are demanding they raise taxes on the rich already.
