thank you Mr. McNerney for not speaking at this GOP right-wing event, now why didn't Rick Santelli come and speak - he is a TRUE American hero - and if it wasn't for his virulent nastiness folks wouldn't have even been out at the public tax-payer funded park yelping and screaming that they don't want to pay anymore taxes - let's keep corporate welfare going though - so everyone can live comfortably in their tony communities such as Pleasanton and seemingly not have to pay for it out of their own pockets

You mean those McNerney "Congress At Your Corners" where the locations are so small that they only allow for a handful of people, and where he conducts one-on-one "WHISPER SESSIONS" with his constituents where no one else can hear what his positions are?
These "Congress At Your Corner" sessions are a joke. They only serve as a "check off" item on his list which states he should "communicate" with his constituents. He is pathetic and votes 100% in lock-step with Princess Pelosi.

i wish i could charge people who feel sorry for me - i could retire. Pulling your leg Alee. Hard to find a news source that doesn't have an agenda. So many papers and yes, even the Weekly, have a slant. i think most reporters and journalists are just practicing till they get their great fictional novel published. The papers are imploding-local news programs not far behind. They opted for entertainment over factual information and they are losing badly as a result.

It CERTAINLY does, Amy!
I don't think you should be surprised, however; He IS part of the administration that has already broken all spending records in the history of this country, and they haven't even been in power for 100 days yet! We may have to hold WEEKLY TEA parties!

So McNerney refused to speak to a bunch of bitter, hate filled, out of touch Republicans? THE NERVE!!!! I'm sure Richard Pombo would have made it if he wasn't so busy hunting endangered species on his ranch out in Tracy.

I am not sure anyone would have wanted McNerney there afterall he might have had to explain his part in getting things the way they are and his plan to taxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is way out of it!!! The guy is a real genius isn't he? He is sure doing a fine job!!!
