To Avoid Voter Rage, Democrats Skip Town Halls

NY Times says, "DEMS RUNNING SCARED"
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultzsees a voter????
Of the 255 Democrats who make up the majority in the House, only a handful held town-hall-style forums as legislators spent last week at home in their districts.........

With images of overheated, finger-waving crowds still seared into their minds from the discontent of last August, many Democrats heeded the advice of party leaders and tried to avoid unscripted question-and-answer sessions. The recommendations were clear: hold events in controlled settings — a bank or credit union, for example — or tour local businesses or participate in community service projects.
