    Are Dimocrats listening? Seems to me after her shooting our esteemed president made a plea for both sides to tone down the rhetoric in debates on various issues.

    Yet today we've got several Dimocrats referring to Tea Party folks as terrorists, among other things. Guess it's one of those things AlGore would call an inconvenient truth, huh?

    So I'm supposed to change my view on the debt and debt ceiling because Gabriel Giffords was shot shot in the head? :confused:

    She said: "“I strongly believe that crossing the aisle for the good of the American people is more important than party politics,”

    How is raising the debt and debt ceiling "for the good of the American people"? :confused:

    Gabrielle Giffords stuck it to her own Democrat Party by voting IN FAVOR of the debt ceiling compromise, since over HALF of the House Democrats voted AGAINST the compromise.

    It's a shame that it takes a politician who has been SHOT IN THE HEAD to understand that the over-the-top partisan bickering must stop if this country is to survive!

    Everyone knows who it was that forced the crisis and refused to compromise. It was the tea baggers. Plain and Simple...she was talking about their DOGMA!
