The democrats are party of cowards, from John Koziol, Citizen of Loconia :
The scheduled appearance of 1st District Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter at a “town hall” meeting at Laconia City Hall on Thursday is shaping up to be an interesting affair with critics of her vote in favor of health care reform blasting her for holding what some have described as a tightly-controlled “victory lap.”
Shea-Porter, D-Rochester, will speak at 7:30 p.m. in the City Council chambers in City Hall. The room can accommodate 60 people. Tickets will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis and local Republicans including Skip Murphy of the website www.granitegrok.com are warning that those seats will be rapidly snapped up by pro-Shea-Porter attendees, not her constituents at large

And from, Jordan Fabian, Politico :
Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) canceled a town hall on the new healthcare law Tuesday because of concerns about the security of the event.
The congressman’s office cited safety issues at the facility where the meeting was to take place and threats to his office, according to a report by News21.
“We just thought it best to cancel it for safety concerns
