Rep. David Scott: I Don’t Know = Shut Up!

Gee, I wonder if that is David Scott (D-GA 13) SecretCongressCode for, “Don’t ask me again, moron, I’ll do whatever I want.” At the Douglas County Highway 92 corridor meeting last week (at least according to the local paper toeing the party line):

As the session began to wind down, Dr. Brian E. Hill, Atlanta-based urologist, turned the question to health care issues. He asked Scott if he intended to vote for House Bill 3200 (the federal health care reform bill). Scott replied, “I don’t know,” and added he was interested in the wishes and thoughts of all the constituents in the 13th District.

But the real story is in the comments!

-Several commenters noted the Pledge was omitted, requested and then had to be redone. Interesting.
Concerning Rep. Scott’s behavior and demeanor: “…display of arrogance…”,
”…Rep. Scott and his staff got into a shouting match with their constituents…”,
“…their representative treated them with disdain and arrogance…”,
“…an example of an elected official out of touch with the concerns of the average voters…”,
“…[the reporter] was in the john that’s why he missed that Scott said he favored the Government Option on healthcare to Dr. Brian Hill…”,
“…Congressman Scott [was] “out of order” by his sudden change in demeanor and voice level…”,
“…accused those in attendance (who would dare question his stance on HB 3200) that we had ‘Hijacked this meeting’…”,
“…quite evident that Congressman Scott does not want to answer to his constituents on HB 3200…”,
“Is that what our country has come to? If the officials don’t like the questions, you are called to be out of order and ceremoniously removed from the room?”,
“…The police told those who showed up to protest they would be arrested if they picketed…”.
Selective ramming: “That said, it’s very telling that Congressman Scott said that the Highway 92 project was taking a long time because it was not something that was going to be rammed down the community’s throat without being properly vetted to determine if it was something the citizens want. Yet he is well prepared to vote on changing health care as we know it without ever reading the bill or having it properly vetted by Congress and his consituents. Furthermore, it appears a large percentage of his constituents are against health care reform but he doesn’t seem worried about ramming it down our throats. Talk about hypocrisy and a double standard!!!”
Money shot: “During Dr. Hill’s comments Scott changed into the state of a “bunker mentality,” you should have seen his face. If looks could kill, Scott would now be in the Douglas County Jail. I can’t decide if Scott was expressing his anger at being challenged for his votes in Congress, or whether he was caught off guard by the anger from his Constituents, or whether he did not understand the issue, or whether he simply did not want to state his opinion on the Health Care issue.”

Amazing, isn’t it? There is an awakening occurring across this nation!

UPDATE: Jason at PeachPundit has VIDEO of Scott losing his temper. (Sorry it won’t embed here, you’ll need to go over there to view it.) After watching the video, I need a bath.

HotAir has picked up the video as well. I wonder when David Scott will admit he screwed up, yelling at his constituents? Allahpundit:

that the guy who asked Scott the question actually is one of his constituents, contrary to what the distinguished gentleman implies. And that his “hijacking” of this town hall (which wasn’t devoted to health care) came during a Q&A session in which attendees were in fact allowed to ask about anything. But aside from that, he’s very, very Nazi, baby.

Now Gateway Pundit has picked up the story. Turn up the heat, baby!

And check out Danishova, who shares the opinion that it is Scott who is the nutcase.

Now it’s a Memeorandom thread. My, my, my.

Donald Douglas at American Power has a two-fer! Seems Scott refused to allow constituents to bring in their own cameras. Glad the news folks were there…


UPDATE II:
He’s getting famous!

Townhall… now this is interesting. In the first clip, at the beginning, it appears that Rep. Scott implies the meeting was for African-Americans only. Funny…I missed that part in the meeting notices. Sounds like he’s playing the race card, like any good Democrat.

UPDATE III: Stay classy folks, please. Personally, I believe the sudden appearance of the swastika is staged to dovetail with the Speaker’s (et al.) delusional talking points regarding town halls.

    I called Rep. Scott’s office yesterday and asked if he would be having any constituent meetings during August. The have tentatively planned one at the end of the month. The person I spoke with said that this meeting would be about health care. I plan to show up and ask hard questions. We will see if Mr. Scott has the courage to answer his constituents or not.

    I, too, was at David Scott’s meeting. I found it interesting that by the time healthcare came up, there was roughly an equal contingent of people in the front of the room who had come to learn about Hwy 92 and in the back of the room who wanted to express their concerns about healthcare. David Scott yelled that he was here for his constituents and pointed to those in the front of the room. that moment, everyone in the back of the room yelled, “we are your consituents, too. We live in District 13. Do our opinions not count for anything.” David Scott made it totally clear who he represents and it is not me!

    I just pulled this off another site linked here. I don’t know how accurate it is. Interesting that David Scott didn’t mention this one if it is legit.

    I embedded it. All this talk by the Democrats about how the “teabaggers” are destroying deliberation? It’s really the … wait for it … the Democrats destroying deliberation!

    Democrats aren’t the least bit interested in democracy.

    And when is the FCC going to wake up about “teabaggers?”

    Is Dr. Brian Hill a secret racist? Is this why he and the HMOs are teaming up on him? Would he be doing this if Congressman Scott were white? Why the Un-American intimidation towards a blue dog Dem? Is it because he is Black? Why is this white Dr. attacking a Affrican-American congressman? We need to know now.

    In the Remaining Minutes, We’ll Take Questions on any Subject Err…Except That Subject.
    The DNC keep pitching avoidance and deception, and let’s hope the fiscal conservatives can keep pitching the spririted, but real issues in this government attempt to takeover 1/6th of the US economy.
    Please check out my take, and stick around for more good content.

    @ Jared Summerhays

    Why do you have to make this a racial issue. I am going to assume you are not white and ask you, why is it since your boy Obama was elected that its ok to make everything a racial issue? If you all want to play the race card then you better be damn ready for the consequences. Dont forget that this is Georgia and you should thank God that it is 2009 and not 1959.
