JT: Raul Encounters Local Tea Party

JT (RE: Post Falls crowd hears Labrador): I attended the town meeting last night. The Press article didn't capture the tone of the gathering nor have today's comments. It was a first for me and was disquieting to put it mildly. There was significant TEA Party presence in the audience. The first questioner asked first about EPA requirements of biodiesel use then... wait for it... "why haven't you moved to impeach Obama?" at which time there was much applause and cheering. More questions about the EPA, even chemtrails, VA retirement cuts (which Congressman Labrador explained as reduction of the COLA adjustments not reductions in base dollars). Rep. Labrador's TEA Party bona fides were challenged as he didn't know of a planned 10 Million Man March on DC. He did respond he did not advocate violence to bring political change and welcomed a peaceful March. Full comment here. (Photo: Duane Rasmussen)

Question: Is it possible that Congressman Labrador is too liberal for Tea Party types?
