If you see her showing up to do her job and represent her constituents as political grandstanding, then sure.

No - I'm sure I wouldn't look good with Giffords injuries - who would - what's your point?

Be interested to hear why you think she was there!
If Biden was going to play GWB, he would have come up behind here and GOOSED her.

What was she doing there?? Consoling the rest of the dems, what else would she be doing?? That and they needed her vote. They would bring back Strom Thurman if needed.

Did she jump or was she pushed - i.e. rolled out for show ?

I find it distasteful - if Gabby was 'compos mentis' and in full control then fine - was she?

I can't honestly say, but it would seem so. Who do you propose would roll her out for show?

Good for her - more power to her


Still puzzled by her 'crash the economy' quip - I'm sure she didn't really think that - it was a politically loaded quip!

That's true - in fact your 'freudian slip' (composT mentis) strikes a chord - I always suspected that GWB was planted rather than born

No!! He sprang from that white haired lady like Jeb did. I wish Jeb would run in 12. He's a good man and I've actually spoken to him twice. Really nice guy.

She has every right as an elected official to vote on any issue, and by her being there to do just that showed strength not only in a mental sense but also a physical one, I'm very proud of her as I think all Americans and others should be.
