Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin Towson ObamaCare Town Hall Meeting Photos, #1

by CynthiaYockey on August 11, 2009

I arrived about 7:10 pm for the ObamaCare Town Hall meeting with Maryland Senator Ben Cardin (D) at Towson State University in Towson, Maryland. The hall was full and the university security officers ordered a dozen or so of us to leave in order to clear the lobby. I had arrived from the back of the building, so I didn’t see the crowd of about 300 that had been turned away until I walked out the door. I moseyed around taking photos. Only about 30 ObamaCare supporters were in the crowd. I was there until around 8:30 pm and didn’t see the auditorium crowd when it came out.

I don’t know how to make the photos into little thumbnails that can be clicked to full size, so I’m dividing up the photos among many posts to see if that reduces loading time. Michelle Malkin has the story on what went on inside the hall. Allahpundit at Hot Air quotes Cardin as reassuring the crowd that ObamaCare will be as well-run as the post office.

    Brilliant! Great coverage. Great to get first-hand news from someone who was there.

    Those are some photos.

    ObamaCare will be as well-run as the post office.

    Oh, you don’t know how much fear and loathing that engenders in me.

  • My Linda Lou is retired from working at the Post Office. Darth Aggie is exactly right to express fear and loathing. Except he (she?) needs to also feel great disgust.

    Ah, the stories I could tell. I’ll just state that there are scores of people who clock in and then sit around somewhere for most of their shifts, doing no work. Now, in my career there was a little bit of time to sit around making eyes at the waitress and suchlike over pie and coffee. There was even time to sometimes have great couty cruiser vs city patrol car races . The Post Office, though. A career of fu, um, screwing around at the county level or private industry is like a week at a large city main post offices.

  • Cynthia-Did you get a chance to talk to the man with the “I’ve changed” sign? Was he there as part of any particular group? And that looks like a photo ID on his collar. Did you happen to catch for what organization? Just curious.

      He was in the vicinity of the LaRouche booth — which was the only booth there– and had an Arabic name on his airport ID badge and I don’t think he knew English very well. The sign may have been a plant, which I learned this afternoon through Stacy McCain. Personally, I don’t see why it would discredit the Right. However, I do see how the Left would resent having their Hitler schtick appropriated and used against them so aptly, especially since their leader really IS a totalitarian. Also, while they have no problem at all with crucifixes upside down in jars of urine as an artistic statement (Google “Piss Christ”), apparently they really DO have boundaries and “Obama as Hitler” blasphemes the name of The One and all who do so must be cast down into a fiery burning pit of Hell for all eternity, or 2012, or Obama’s arrest, whichever comes first.
