Town Hall Hardliner

Rep. Allen West, a freshman African-American Republican representing a mostly white, affluent Florida district, held his first town meeting this week.

The well-attended event had the feeling of a victory party, though the crowd was largely silent when West called for slashing Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security spending... In a state with a heavy concentration of the elderly and where Federal social spending for seniors has been considered sacrosanct.

Will the district with a Congressman, extreme even by Tea Party standards, boil over with buyer's remorse as his agenda is exposed?
