Dem strategy of blaming Bush proves unpopular in New Hampshire

National Democrats have made clear they believe the strategy of blaming unpopular Republican former-President George W. Bush still has some political mileage as they head toward the November elections. But that strategy may have hit a brick wall in Alton, NH this week.

Democratic Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) faced a hostile crowd at an Alton town hall event on health care. When Shea-Porter appeared to blame excessive government spending on the previous administration, the crowd really erupted in anger.

Shea-Porter had to be removed from a 2005 Bush town hall by two police officers.

    November 2010 will either confirm my worst fears about our country – that we have been turned into lazy sheep self-willingly subservient to self-styled political royalty with lifetime taxpayer-funded benefits far better than what they are imposing on us the people – or (I hope!!!) that Americans may be slow to wake up but that enough of us are boiling mad now at where the cabal in power are taking our country and its future that slime like Shea-Porter get kicked out and we can start fixing the mess.

    I know she didn’t cause all our problems but she is mightily contrinuting to making them worse, plus I know from personally witnessing her that she is an arrogant, condescending piece of work, regardless of ideology.
