SAVANNAH Former U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney ripped her fellow Democrats in a fiery speech Saturday that accused them of failing to stop the Iraq war, ignoring the victims of Hurricane Katrina and failing to impeach President Bush.
McKinney, who lost her House seat last year after becoming the first black woman elected to Congress from Georgia 14 years earlier, took aim at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic presidential candidates and even the Congressional Black Caucus in an address to 350 people at a Georgia NAACP fundraising dinner in Savannah Saturday night.
She accused Pelosi of failing to address Katrinas devastation in her agenda for the Democratic Congress first 100 days in office. She bashed the Congressional Black Caucus for voting to continue funding for the war in Iraq. And she criticized the major Democratic presidential hopefuls, as a group, for failing to stake out a clear policy on Iran.
From the Democratic Party to the Congressional Black Caucus to those habitual Democratic voters, weve lost our home team, McKinney said. Do we even know it?
McKinney didnt say whether shell run in 2008 for the 4th District House seat. Voters ousted her last year, several months after McKinneys headline-grabbing scuffle with a Capitol Hill police officer.
I don't believe in evolution because of her. She too stupid to live under Darwin's rules.
They’d better do what she wants, lest they get smacked-up. She is pretty violent.
You forgot the complete disavowal of Israel.
Say what you want about her, but at least she’s got principles, which is more than you can say about just about everyone in the Congress.
Personally, I miss her. Though it is somewhat satisfying that she continues to be a thorn in the Dems’ side, even though she’s no longer in Congress.
Is she running for President?
Get used to it, Cyndi. There are going to be complaints about the Federal government "failing to address Katrina's devastation" for at least the next hundred years.
McKinney and Carter soul brothers.
“Say what you want about her, but at least shes got principles”
I would say that your obviously NOT very Brilliant :P
She is a first class moron and clown.
Bad Thyroid Cindy needs to go away.
Is she still working at that IHOP off 285?
There might be something in the Georgia water!
LOL...Probably fired for thieving.
>>>>>>>>Voters ousted her last year, several months after McKinneys headline-grabbing scuffle with a Capitol Hill police officer.<<<<<<<<<<<<
They didn’t oust her because of the incident...they ousted her because she’s a raving lunatic.
Hey Racythia, if you are standing alone telling everyone else they are wrong......it might be you who is wrong.
She’s like herpes. Just keeps coming back.
