It depends on the meaning of “anyone” “anytime”

Via Glenn we see that Congressman Tim Ryan doesn’t seem to have the courage of his convictions:

About one dozen protesters. many of them carrying signs, was apparently all it took to cancel Congressman Tim Ryan’s appearance at the Youngstown Community Health Center Tuesday.

Correct me if I’m wrong but don’t congressmen spend tens of thousands of dollars to convince people to give them this job? Gateway Pundit nails it:

In his cancellation notice his staff made clear:

“Don’t get me wrong, Congressman Ryan will debate anyone, anytime.”

He’ll debate anyone at anytime.
…Just not in public and not at a town hall meeting.

Meeting with the people who elect him is part of the job, if he is not willing to do it he should step aside and let someone else do so.
