Rep. Carter And The Missed Town Hall Meetings
Where was Rep. Carter instead of showing up at his town hall meetings
? This is the best explanation I can find so far as to where he was, Lunching at DFW Airport (Be sure and watch the video
. I particularly liked this part:
The airport luncheon was supposed to be a hush-hush affair. All the attendees but Barton either dodged reporters or rushed away without comment.
I just have this image coming to mind of all these Republican congressmen scurrying to their vehicles like cockroaches when the lights come on. But why were they all so afraid of being seen there, except Joe Barton who ran to the camera? Were they all using this as an excuse to skip out on meetings with their constituents like Rep. Carter? We can feel very confident that Rep. Carter was at DFW on Wednesday. Remember this from the Belton town hall
Carter's Regional Director told the crowd of about 50 people - mostly senior citizens - that Mr. Carter "sends his regrets". However, with "Mr. DeLay stepping down, there is obviously some disorganization in the party and Mr. Carter is assisting with that."
This is why Rep. Carter missed showing up at the town hall meetings which were to help senior citizens understand the new Medicare D program? This is why he didn't fulfill his promise to his constituents? Rep. Carter felt it was more important to be in a meeting to try and decide who the Texas Republican congressional delegation will choose to vote for as their new leader and whip, instead of serving his constituents? I thought the constituents came first and not partisan politics or personal self interest. Remember our elected representatives work for us, not the other way around. This does not look good on your resume Rep. Carter.
