Oh yea, that’s what Republicans are saying about Obama. I guess the actual Republican lawmakers who right the bills, who whined that the Democrats weren't doing enough to create jobs, are good with a little summer break.
Rep. Paul Ryan has decided that during this hot "climate change" summer, he doesn't have to hold anymore of those pesky, loud and negatively covered free town hall meetings. And if he’s does schedule one, you’re charged $15 bucks for a catered meal. You must buy the food to attend.
Apparently some of his constituents weren't looking for the "leader," Ryan claims is needed, to guide them around like sheep to slaughter.
Huffington Post: Staffers for Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) called police on Thursday evening to disperse unemployed protesters staging a sit-in at his Kenosha, Wis., office, according to the protesters and police … they're unhappy with … his new policy of not holding free public meetings with constituents during the congressional recess. During the summer of 2009, Ryan hosted some 17 town halls.
Even though the Racine area has a 10 percent unemployment rate, Ryan oddly continues to win reelection. This by the way is where County executive Jim Ladwig is using jail inmates to do city work, instead of hiring the jobless.

Shannon Molina said, "I went there to talk to Paul Ryan. They said he was on vacation with his family in Colorado."
Union thugs and chaos everywhere?
Lt. Eric Larsen of the Kenosha Police Department told HuffPost that Ryan's office called the department around 4 p.m. on Thursday, and that the officers who responded found seven protesters inside the building where the office is located and about 50 protesters outside. "They left peaceably," Larsen said.
