Enjoy this video:

www.eyeblast.tv...

It is only a few minutes long.

This representative is sitting there having a town hall. When a Minuteman gets up to ask about the borders, the representatives first response is, "Oh, you are from the Minutemen? Who are you going to kill today?"

And then it goes downhill from there. Despite a room full of popular support. For example, when it is suggested that we build a wall, he says, "Tell you what. We will let you go down and design the wall. And when you are done shooting people, i will start a ladder company."

This is the kind of respect our elected officials have for you, folks. This is what you are going into the voting booth to address in November. And in two Novembers after that. This man, who used strawman arguments (yes, more than one) to belittle his constituent....this represents Washington.

We are at a crossroads, folks. Not just our nation, but the world over. We have a chance to "right the ship". Yeah, it is going to hurt. But we must do it.

When you go pull that lever this November, remember this video. The cynicism and sarcasm expressed by our leaders, our employees.

I just can't believe our "elected" representatives make fun of us so blatantly like that.

Whoever voted for that dude must be feeling pretty embarrassed.

that guy is one of the biggest jackass's I've ever had this misfortune of listening too.

straw man attacks dont even begin to describe his assianine behavior.

I cant remember the last time a teenager was that sarcastic, sad to think a majority of our country's ruling class think the same as this guy.

i wouldn't be surprised if he receives a few death threats after mocking concerned citizens in that manner.

Well, if that is how he talks to us in public, what is it like behind closed doors? Is it suggested that we just eat cake?

I would have had to be dragged from that meeting.

Obama was elected by one simple fact: people who were uninformed about who he was, and what our nation faced, were encouraged to vote for him. It is called "grass roots", and he had it.

That is why we do not want to encourage people who are not interested in voting to go out and vote.

A+ for the thread.

Hopefully people finally wake up to the fact that career politicians are evil and only out for one person... themselves
I wish this would catch some wind behind its sails and be on every television and radio in America!

I say no more "career" politicians at all... time to get some regular folks in there and maybe we will finally see some good done in Washington...

But I have a feeling I am being a little naive... A guy can hope though

I personally hope that arrogant prick can't get a job chairing his local PTA chapter after this disgrace. This video needs to be distributed... widely. After it becomes apparent that his constituents want his hide we can all watch his campaign funding vanish and relish in his downfall

First off, S&F for bringing this to our attention.

Second, its a shame when our elected leaders think boarder security is a joke, I dont know what country he thinks he's living in where the borders are "secure, thank you" but he needs a reality check.

I'm sure if an illegal was to kill on of his family members, or break into his house, or steal his car, his tune would be different. Unfortunately his views are scewed by the fact these illegals vote for him.

A theory I thought of about why he is like this, well two actually.

One, he's lost the last of his aging logic abilities, or...

He is being being bribed the the drug cartels to take no action, which would be troubling.

Either way, I don't think he will be Re-elected.

He is using a pandering campaign model. Plain and simple. Endear yourself to segment of society, then defend the wrong doings of that segment while giving them money.

Seems like a home run campaign strategy to me. Especially when group like Acorn will find a way to make those votes count.

Pete Stark has a very LONG history of making outrageous statements. This is one more in a long list of unsubstantiated claims aimed at ANYONE that opposes his agenda. That agenda includes his atheistic beliefs, his hatred of anything that smacks of free enterprise, and the American way of life. All you need do is Google his name with Youtube and you'll get to see some of his "lowlights" in Congress. They would be laughable if the mess we are in, weren't so serious.

I think what you guys see, and what many miss, is that this one, condescending, arrogant pud is but a microcosm of virtually all elected officials in Washington... I've never seen a physical embodiment of all that is wrong in this country until now. Hints, here and there, but never one piece of footage that I could point my finger at and without hesitation, say "That right there, that's what's wrong with this country..."

I rarely say what I am about to post, but this butthole deserves it.

Pete Stark needs terminal, painful testicular cancer.

No, Pete. The borders of my yard are secure. Thanks, by the way, to my doggies......and to all the people who respect the borders of my yard. The US borders, well, they are NOT secure, thank you very much.
