Congresswoman Giffords back to work
 
It was great to see Congresswoman Giffords back on Capital Hill, last night.
I noticed that the Vice President was dispatched to great her return.
I'm thinking that was a job for the President. Where was he?
Yesterday must have been about the 8th or 9th most important day since his term started. It think it rates right up there in importance as the day he led the SEALS into Pakistan and personally killed the boogie man.
So where was the President Yesterday?:confused:

It was - she doesn't look at all well though and I feel that it was a bit of a media floor show, which is a little distasteful.

I think you'll find that the President is a tad busy right now!

A tad busy where, doing what?

To rob a line from The Kings Speech - "Presidenting" ;)

They shouldn't be - there are 'Rednecks' on both sides - that's how we got to where we are now (i.e. the eleventh hour) on this whole sorry mess!

And Bush's spending (and warmongering...) and Clinton's spending and Bush Snr's spending and and and and and


Name blame shame - change the record dude - this mess is certainly no single leaders fault!

Just after the Tucson tragedy, Obama called for the toning down of rhetoric. Now Gabby's back and the vile, hateful rhetoric from the Democrats is worse than ever. Just more proof that our lost puppy dog of a president has very little influence, even within his own party. Biden is just as lame, squirming around those "terrorist" comments aimed at the Republicans. I was never about the Tea Party. TP influence was just one small factor but the Dems have to exaggerate and make a big deal out of it just for the purpose of political posturing (pestering?).

The rednecks on either side had nothing to do with our spending. People putting their party and their votes ahead of the country and it's citizens got us here.

BOTH sides - this applies to BOTH sides

BOTH sides admit and claim same :)

Good to see her back! :)

She needs to take things easy, though. If she's careful it'll all be part of the rehabilitation. :)
