Blumenthal "listening tour" skips Bristol

For two weeks, U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal is touring the state on what he calls a "Listening Tour" to hear what his constituents have to say about, well, anything.
The tour takes him from Stamford to Hartford, from Groton to Winsted, from Torrington to Meriden, and more.
But in all that time, Blumenthal has no plans to listen to the concerns of the Mum City.
Of course, Bristol residents are free to show up at any of his stops. And Lord knows nobody can hit all of Connecticut's 169 towns and cities in two weeks, or even two months, but isn't Bristol worth making time for?
Maybe Blumenthal needs to see Fury's rap video about how great Bristol is.

Personally I am quite thankful that mr. B. is skipping Bristol . We really can NOT afford to have him suing and closing any more businesses here than he already has .

Why would you want to come to BRISTOL A MAYOR WHO CANT LEAD A POLICE DEPT THATS USELESS. Nothing good would come out of it. Doesnt take much to know whats happening here NOTHING.

And if Mr. Blumenthal saw you, January 11.2011 2:20 PM, he would probably ignore you completely or cross the street to avoid you.

Mr. Blumenthal represents all that's good for the average Jane and Joe Citizen. Greedy corporatists had better watch themselves, there's a new sheriff in DC!

Go Dick Go!

Vietnam should have been one of his stops.

The election of Blumenthal to the US Senate is a coup for Connecticut. The self-centered liberal activist (Blumenthal) won't be able to do nearly as much damage to Connecticut as he already has as A.G. It's like promoting him out of way.

Good riddance.

You're the typical Blumenthal supporter: immature and dumb.

BRISTOL THE FORGOTTEN CITY. Thats one smart man for not coming here he knows nothing could help with the stupid politics we have here. Not one smart move out of all of them together. The only people who dont see whats going on are us. We put this group of jerks in office.

A McMahon is a person who visits Bristol and knows how to create jobs. She doesn't lie about military service or anything else. She is a lost opportunity for us to have good representation, but she'll be back.

Steve, you forget that Bristol is a town of Veterans.

But Blumenthal is fully aware.

Maybe he is afraid that someone will ask why he didn't resolve Bristol's overbilling with
CLP!!!!

Instead of complaining, stand up and do something about it!!! We voted them in, we can vote them out. We need to take all aspects of the government and put them back in the hands of the people. Not the corporations and banking. We need to start locally, and work our way to the White House.Instead of following party lines, vote a different way.As for the Bristol PD, I honestly have no clue. Other than getting a new Mayor, and Chief of Police. The ONLY WAY anything can happen, is if WE THE PEOPLE, do something about. STAND UP, AND TAKE PEACEFUL ACTION!!!!!

Au contraire, mon frère. A McMahon is a greedy corporatist who loathes the average Bristol citizen and knows how to abuse her employees while taking full advantage of them on every level possible. She doesn't lied about military service because she has no military experience whatsoever. And she lies a lot. More than you obviously care to recognize. If you are a middle-class Bristol citizen, then she would NOT have represented you well. If you are a greedy corporate SOB, then she would have been great for you and your ilk. She would be an idiot to try running for office again, but she's such an egomaniac that I wouldn't be surprised if she did.

In the most basic terms, a McMahon is a LOSER!

To 10:41 I can absolutely guarantee that you have never met Linda McMahon. She is a wonderful woman, and your hate-filled rhetoric is irresponsible.

Linda McMahon is as phony as the steroid-dependent business that made her a billionaire. Do the research. Anyone who treats employees the way she does is not someone I would want to meet. She should be handcuffed and put in jail.

She's an irresponsible loser and you're ignorant.

Why don't you run if you're so smart? When you have no answers, it's so easy to blame those who were elected. Let's not blame all of them. There are certain ones who will not work with others and there's nothing you can do about that. I can't stand people who make blanket statements. It doesn't solve anything.
