It was standing room only at Bend's Senior Center; people came out to U.S. Congressman Greg Walden's Town Hall Tuesday afternoon. Concerns with the threat of Iran developing nuclear weapons was one topic that Walden gave serious thought to, saying he's hoping economic sanctions will work: “There are also threats out there that we have to guard against. And I think a nuclear armed Iran is one of those threats. I would much prefer and hope that the sanction authority that we've given to the President, multiple Presidents now, on Iran, and the international effort that Secretary Clinton and others are leading to try to bring other countries into this economic sanctions effort, to try to force Iran not to proceed with its nuclear development, will work." Walden says the United States is the most called upon country to help with disasters, instances of genocide and other humanitarian efforts.

 
And on Rush Limbaugh…
 

The hotly debated topic of Rush Limbaugh's recent comments did not escape discussion at Tuesday's Town Hall meeting with U.S. Congressman Greg Walden. Walden was firm in his opinion about the controversial talk show host. Referring to his previous ownership of a radio station, Walden said: "I would not have tolerated a host of my talk show saying about an individual, what Mr. Limbaugh did. I just wouldn't. I've said that publicly, I'll say it here. I don't that that it's appropriate. I also don't think it's appropriate what some of the liberal talk show hosts have said (applause). I think it's coarse, I think it's wrong, I don't think it adds to the quality of the debate." The audience was very vocal about the subject, but all agreed that everyone is allowed to have an opinion, and most acknowledged that Limbaugh did apologize.
