Video: Rick Berg’s Fargo Town Hall

Courtesy of, here’s a video highlight reel of Rep. Rick Berg’s town hall last night in Fargo.

In related news, the liberals continue to push their town hall narrative trying to manufacture the same sort of perception of these town halls as the 2009 town halls when Democrat lawmakers were seen getting angry and snapping at constituents who were questioning Obamacare. Liberal Washington Post blogger Aaron Blake zeroed in Berg’s town hall last night writing, “Rep. Rick Berg (R-N.D.) reportedly commiserated with the man he defeated, former representative Earl Pomeroy (D-N.D.), while getting his own town hall grilling: “Now I see why my predecessor didn’t want to do town halls.”

You can see the referenced exchange above. “A town hall revolt redux?” asks Blake. “The answer is that we don’t know yet, but it certainly could.”

The answer is the left and their friends in the media certainly want it, but the facts for it aren’t in evidence yet.

From all the video I’ve seen nationally, which to be sure has a few pointed questions and tense moments, the two just aren’t on the same scope.

As far as Rick Berg is concerned, let’s all note that a) the guy is actually holding town halls (unlike his predecessor Earl Pomeroy) and b) he’s taking all the questions and not losing his cool with his constituents.

That’s a marked improvement for North Dakota.
