Cheers and Jeers

JEERS - To an elected bully. After the president's State of the Union address, U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm from Staten Island was approached by a reporter for his thoughts about the address. The reporter also tried to ask Grimm about allegations regarding his campaign finances. Grimm turned and walked away, but then returned and told reporter Michael Scotto: "Let me be clear to you, you ever do that to me again I'll throw you off this [expletive] balcony." When Scotto replied, "Why? Why? It's a valid question," Grimm said, "No, no, you're not man enough, you're not man enough. I'll break you in half. Like a boy." This was all caught on tape. The reporter was doing his job. Grimm's conduct was inexcusable. If he can't handle reporters' questions, he shouldn't be in Congress. Grimm threatened to throw a reporter off a balcony. The voters should throw Grimm out of office.
