It's Called Fraud

No matter what you say about it, it is very gutsy to have town hall meetings where all sides can be voiced.

This is a far cry from anything George W Bush held as president. Virtually anyone attending any of his public events had to sign an 'oath of loyalty,' ensuring that he was speaking to the choir at all times.

It takes a real man (or women in Claire McCaskill's place) to face a rowdy meeting full of people passionate about all sides of the issue.

Also, does this story remind anyone of "Joe the Plumber," the guy who isn't a plumber, who doesn't own a plumbing company, and whose name isn't "Joe?"

Dear Anon,
"Virtually anyone attending any of his public events had to sign an 'oath of loyalty,' ensuring that he was speaking to the choir at all times."

Can you factually substantiate that? What examples do you have to back this statement up?

For example; Are you suggesting that the man who threw his shoe at President Bush was a plant by the Bush Administration? How about the protesters that appeared at several of President Bush's speeches and disrupted them by calling him a murderer, liar et.al.? Did they take this same oath?

If so, then perhaps you show me/us supporting evidence that this condition of an 'oath of loyalty'?

Who gave him the name Joe the Plumber? Did he introduce himself to Candidate Obama that way?
