U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln has amended a statement she made in a conference call with reporters today. Wait 'til the 'baggers get hold of this.
Washington – U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln this evening released the following statement to clarify comments she made earlier today on her weekly press call. Lincoln was responding to a question regarding disruptions this past week at town hall meetings across the nation:
“Although I do believe that some of these protestors are disrespectful of other citizens in the audience who truly want to ask questions about health care, I shouldn’t have used the term un-American. I support the right of every Arkansan to speak out and have their voices heard. I would just ask that we all continue to work in a constructive way to rebuild our economy and fine-tune our health care system so it works for all of us.”
