Re: “Two Takes

Interesting article. With respect to Syria and North Korea, Senator Corker absolutely would have been asked questions on that topic if he'd spent more time with his audience. He stopped taking questions after only about 40 minutes. It should be noted that people were literally standing in the room with a giant ~7 ft. "Veterans for Peace" flag in his full view. And based on what I recall, he did discuss Syria by way of lamenting that action had not been taken years ago when it could have saved more lives. (He neglected to take ownership of the fact that the GOP opposed giving President Obama the authority to act at that time, but that's another matter and he was generally more supportive than the rest of his party on that particular issue...) Overall, I applaud him for taking time to speak with his constituents; but I do it at a very low decibel level because choosing to meet at a coffee shop 30 miles outside of a major metropolitan area at 8:00am on a weekday (when he literally traveled into that major metropolitan city for lunch) was a very weak move. He could have easily hosted a real town hall after 5:00pm within the city limits of the town he was there to visit.
