Sheila Jackson Lee's Insanity on Parade

Somehow, when you think "Texas politics", this is the last thing that comes to your mind!

Around :26, "Only this president" (which she babbles several times, so it must be true!) , only Obama has the "attacks, disagreements and inability to work with him" (because we all know how those Democrats bent over backwards to please and agree with George Bush and make his agenda come true!)
Obama doesn't get the "same kind of respectful treatment" (As George Bush? Stop laughing!)
Around one minute, she talks about "something required by statute". You mean like the budget the House was supposed to pass no later than last October, when Democrats controlled the House, the Senate and the White House? Please, Ms. Jackson Lee! Link me to your outrage over not fulfilling your obligations required by statute then! (I won't hold my breath!)

At 1:09, she talks about a "fact", but doesn't say what planet it is a fact on:
"The Republicans are having their way gutting and cutting everything we can find"
What exactly have the Republicans "gotten their way" on? A balanced budget amendment? Substantial cuts in spending? An agreement from Obama and Reid not to raise taxes in a recession? Take your meds, Sheila! (And no, I'm not disrespecting you because you're black, Ms. Jackson Lee. I'm disrespecting you because you're nuts!)

"Gutting and cutting"? I haven't heard of a single line item in the billions of dollars in the federal budget (other than the military) that Democrats are willing to cut! Maybe if you had done your Constitutional duty in 2010, Ms. Jackson Lee, and passed a budget, even an unbalanced one, we'd know what programs you are willing to pare back to keep the country solvent?

The last twenty seconds are filled with race baiting, as if Obama were being singled out for being black, when in reality (a place Ms. Jackson Lee cannot visit without a visa) he is being singled out for taking an economy that had been driven into a ditch and driving it over a cliff.

  1. A true nutcase if there ever was.

  2. Wasn't she sitting on the House Science space subcommittee, when she asked the folks at JPL if the Mars Pathfinder had taken a picture of the flag Neil Armstrong planted there in 1969?

  3. That woman puts a Severe Hurt on my eyes and ears. And exactly what have Republicans gutted and cut? And correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't she being accused of some kind of discrimination as we speak? A disabled staffer I think.

  4. I hadn't heard about the staffer, but it wouldn't surprise me. Democrats are world class hypocrites when it comes to actually following personally all the laws and rules they impose on everyone else.
