Compare/Contrast – Politician Edition

Exhibit A:

We have posted this video numerous times before but here it is again:

A constituent is upset with Congressman Ryan and voices his complaint. The Imperial Guard(that we pay for with our tax dollars)was all over it, and leaped into action protecting the Boy King from having to hear someone criticize him. Then when they took the 71 year old out of the room paul ryan (R- Wall st.) even made a joke(albeit a poor one) at this constituents expense.

Exhibit B:

Senatorial candidate Elizabeth Warren, recently had a volunteer meeting (yes look at all of the people) and a tea party straggler found his way in. He was unemployed and wanted to let Ms. Warren know that he was upset.

In case you could not understand whatever language he was speaking here is what was said.

Moments into a speech before volunteers here Wednesday evening, Elizabeth Warren was interrupted by a Tea Party supporter who hurled a gender-based epithet at the Senate candidate. The man, who said he’d been unemployed since February 2010, objected to Warren’s expressed affiliation with the frustrations of Occupy Wall Street, and argued that the Tea Party has been protesting Wall Street excess for longer than the nascent global movement.

The crowd tried to shout the man down, but Warren told her supporters to let him speak. “No, no, it’s alright. Let me say two things,” she said. “I’m very sorry that you’ve been out of work. I’m also very sorry that the recent jobs bill that would’ve brought 22,000 jobs to Massachusetts did not pass in the Senate.”

Speaking in a packed VFW hall, Warren went on to address his question about her association with Occupy Wall Street. “I’ve been protesting what’s been going on on Wall Street for a very long time,” she said, but added that the movement has its own independent agenda and will proceed along its own course.

“Yeah, so has the Tea Party,” the man said, before losing his cool.

“Well, if you’re the intellectual creator of that so-called party,” he said, “you’re a socialist whore. I don’t want anything to do with you.
