Skip to comments.Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) Returns to House Floor for 1st Vote Since Shooting
Posted on 08/01/2011 4:36:38 PM PDT by montag813
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) has just come to the U.S. House floor to cast her first vote since the shooting, in favor of the debt ceiling "deal", which has just passed. She entered via a wheelchair, but was last seen standing on her own accord after the vote completed. We wish her well.
This certainly answers questions about whether she would serve or resign. Let's hope that her post-recovery career is less in line with the disgusting Raul Grijalva and her buddy Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and more in line with the people of Arizona, on SB1070 and illegal immigration.
‘Let’s hope that her post-recovery career is less in line with the disgusting Raul Grijalva and her buddy Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and more in line with the people of Arizona’——
She just showed up for the biggest debt hike in American history.
Does that give a clue?
Glad she’s back on her feet and can vote, but I dislike the fawning over her vote that sucks.
Progressive Co-Chair Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva
you know the dems will have her there for the rest of her life as an icon for gun control.
And all those wazoo apertures who preached that the rhetoric post shooting was so inflamed have been all over TV in the past few days using the very inflamed rhetoric to demean Republicans, and the Tea Party. Hypocritically ironic.
‘She just showed up for the biggest debt hike in American history.’
In other words, she voted in agreement with nearly 3/4 of the GOP Congresscritters and against 1/2 of the Democrats.
Tribute to our medical system before Zero destroys it.
She voted the way Pelosi wanted her to vote.
“you know the dems will have her there for the rest of her life as an icon for gun control”
If and when she runs for re-election her brain damage will be obvious. On the other hand, there are brain dead people who get re-elected.
Who told her which button to push?
So, so true, unfortunately.
It is wonderful that she has made so much progress. We will know that she has recovered completely when she changes parties.
Glad she’s able to come back to the table, just sorry her first meal has to be a crap sandwich.
The only way to tell her from the rest of the Democrats
is that she has surgery hair.
LOL, Doulosi, LOL.
Her vote is proof of brain damage
And she returned on the same day Biden said the Republicans were holding a gun to the Democrats’ heads.
She was a Republican before she she “saw the light” and became a Demorat. Isn’t it supposed to be the other way around? Only new party she could switch to now would be the Libertarian or Green party..hmmm..
But I have a question that was addressed here: How in H.E. double toothpick are constituents responsible for paying the salary plus benefits of a legislator who is incapable of fulfilling her responsibilities much less understanding them????
Who’s lying here? House website vote role call shows she did NOT vote.
I wonder if Giffords was shot with one of the ObamaGuns that Obama smuggled to criminals via Fast+Furious.
dunno. may never know.
but that left wing sheriff if he knows would never let go of the evidence.
The judgment of someone who took a bullet through her brain is not.
She’s good friends with crazy Wasserman-Schultz, that’s enough to question anyone’s judgment.
“You seat is right here Mrs. Giffords”
“Will I get a chance to go to the concession stand before the movie starts”?
As if you need to ask...
Will she be faced with the same questions Michele Bachmann faced about her ability to serve? What kind of medication is she on? /s
I suppose that there are methods by which she could be declared incompetent or recalled, or by which the House could pressure her to resign. Still, my first thought on reading your question was that current Democrat Representative Hank Johnson of Georgia said that he was worried that Guam would capsize because there were too many people on it. He was entirely serious. Has Giffords ever said anything as stupid?
