I'm sure the questions probably were staged, it seems that way in most of these types of meetings. Of course the way things are going with these health care town hall forums, they had to try to weed out some loony stuff too.

MSNBC just aired video of a man with a pistol strapped to his leg waiting for Barack Obama to arrive at a townhall in New Hampshire.

The man is carrying a sign that says, "It Is Time to Water the Tree of Liberty." That's a reference to a Thomas Jefferson quote: "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants." It was a favorite slogan of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, who was wearing a T-shirt when he was arrested with a picture of Lincoln on the front and a tree dripping with blood on the back.

Now, this guy is carrying a legal weapon, says NBC News' Ron Allen. The local chief of police has no objections. Open carriage of licensed handguns is legal in New Hampshire, and the man is standing on the private property of a nearby church (!) that has no problem with an armed man hanging around.

I'm sure secret service won't let this guy anywhere near the President.

I know-and that's just Gawker being Gawker (funny sarcasm and all that). The sign slogan and its' connection concerns me more than the possibility that he'd get near the President.

These uneducated republicans are really scaring me.

There is NO THREAT of socialism to the United States. And before you even argue that, look up what socialism actually is instead of regurgitating what you have been told by Beck and Limbaugh.

Gosh. That just made me really, really sad.

These seem to be decent people. They've just been severely misled and are grossly uninformed.

Imagine if so many people on the left took everything Colbert, Stewart, and Maher said and took it as absolutely true. That's what it appears a lot of conservatives are doing with the entertainers like Limbaugh on the right.

I don't know about you but to me the word of Olbermann is gospel.

My mother is a hardcore Dittohead and the stuff she spouts off to me is incredible. I try to rebutt it but it's a losing battle. The thing is her sole news sources are Rush and Fox news, the same Fox News that didn't even show Obama's town hall today. And people wonder why so many are ill informed.

My news comes from a variety of sources including print (web version), broadcast and internet based. I do however refuse to watch Fox News unless they are being mocked by Jon Stewart. I have my standards.

And that's just the problem. Rush is a businessman and his ilk are buisnessmen. He knows what brings in listeners and he's pretty much willing to say whatever it takes to keep them listening. I don't suppose I'd fault him for it, except that people actually take him seriously rather than seeing him for what he is--an entertainer. I think he and Ann Coulter and the rest are highly irresponsible. It's kind of how I used to feel about Eminem.

I think it's worth remembering that if President Obama had gotten his way on healthcare reform, all this 'debate" and "discussion" at these townhalls would be over already passed House and Senate bills. Which I'm pretty sure is bass ackwards in order.

In that regard, we owe all those shouting "slow down" and "read the bill" a debt of gratitude.

Actually, I think that's what people should be shouting at the people who are shouting.

I think it is more the people who are shouting "socialist" that are getting on my nerves.

...and the people who are saying: "Government- get your hands off my Medicaid!"
