Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee talks on the phone as a woman asks a question at a town hall event.
Oops. Dupe. Sorry. Please delete.
Looks like a ready made campaign ad for someone running against her. Will someone PLEASE run against her?!
She think she works at 7 Eleven or something?
All that was missing was for her to be holding up her index finger -”one minute, please...”
Maybe her constituents will allow her to use her phone all she wants after the next election ...
She can't be bothered to do that -- would require too much effort.
As long as enough people vote for low IQ, arrogant people, this mess will never get cleaned up.
The headline says it all. Props. They’re using these town halls as props. They don’t care about the people there and Sheila Jackson Lee etc etc. would rather be someplace else.
No, holding up her finger would mean she didn’t want to miss anything her voter was saying. She let the woman talk and stopped paying attention.
Personally, I think she was completely disinterested in that “typical white woman’s” opinion.
As long as people who can't read, write or don't pay taxes are allowed to vote, that's what you'll get.
Just looks like she’s speaking on a cell phone while at the town meeting ... arrogance!!!!
Two words: NO CLASS.
I would have stoped right there and said VERY LOUDLY, “HEY! Representative Lee! Hang up that PHONE! YOU work for ME and YOU WILL have the decency to at least PRETEND listen!”
Someone will call me racist, but look at her skin color and you will know the skin color of the majority of people who voted for her. All blacks care is that she is black.
I can’t call her a stupid piece of crap without someone on the left calling me a racist. So I’ll just say she’s a stupid piece of crap....
Isn’t there a law against LWD (Legislating while distracted)? How incredibly RUDE to put it mildly.
LOL @ “Can you hear me now” :)
<All blacks care is that she is black.
Jebus H. You realize there are blacks on this board, right? Not all blacks put skin color above character and the Constitution. note - I realize you weren’t saying ‘all blacks’ as in the totality of black people, but it is still an affront to say that blacks, many of whom serve honorably and bravely in the military, care only about color.
Two more: NO BRAINS.
Wow. WOW! Even for a lamebrain like her, this is stunning. I know she is a brainless idiot ideologue, but her arrogance comes very close to topping her stupidity as her dominant trait here!
I was listening to Michael Berry, who was sitting in for Mark Levin last night, he said this woman will actually go uninvited to wakes of people she doesn’t even know, and will go up to the front, read the person’s name off the program and make some impromptu speech...
Racism and fear of being called racist has brought us these pompous self-important people who ought to be thrown out. Zimbabwe didn't get like it is by accident.
Folks, I would bet money she didn’t even have a call or make a call. That was her just being an arrogant dummy trying to figure out how to spit on one of her constituents without spitting on them.
It is like Barack Obama giving the finger like an adolescent, pretending he is scratching his face.
The zero has a 98% approval rating among blacks. What does that tell you?
Wasn't that Lance Armstrong?
Do you think if the borders of the 18th District were drawn by someone sober, she would stand a chance of being elected?
It makes me wonder if Dems need to work on their inner monologue.
Bear with me...
How many times so far has someone opposing Deathcare been called a racist?
Several times already. Someone even went to the trouble to dig up the cell phone number of that lady who told Specter off and called HER a racist. Besides the fact that getting her cell number shouldn’t even have been possible, she never went anywhere near issues of race. BUT SHE’S A RACIST!
So back to that elusive inner monologue.
Dems keep talking about the crushing cost of healthcare, the huge numbers of uninsured, and the “need for reform”.
But is this what they’re REALLY thinking? Is this REALLY why they’re pushing so hard?
So what do I think is going on? It depends on who you talk about.
Obama: He’s a “community organizer”, he keeps reminding us. I think he’s on a reparations mission. He’s on record as saying that he opposed reparations BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T GO FAR ENOUGH. We’ll, getting all blacks free healthcare for life on everyone else’s dime sounds like a good start at reparations for me. So that’s what I think is going on in his mind.
The Black Caucus: See above.
All the other liberals: See above, with the caveat that they’re doing it because they want to feel good about themselves — not out of a sense of entitlement or revenge. I think a lot of liberals remain liberal because they’re afraid to tell blacks, “no — no, we’re NOT giving you this.” It’s a leap that they can’t make, for fear of being called the racists that they have called so many other people over the years.
So, back AGAIN to the inner monologue. Oppose Deathcare, and you’re opposing FREE HEALTHCARE FOR BLACK PEOPLE. You, evil racist, you! As for Obama’s approval, DUH! He’s getting them FREE HEALTHCARE, for crying out loud!
They seem to have forgotten that they HAVEN’T YET TOLD US THAT THIS IS THE REASON FOR DEATHCARE. No wonder people are confused. That inner monologue can be really elusive when you’re a deranged Leftie. Or maybe they just have a sociopathic flavor of Tourettes. Who knows.
Do I think that 98% approval rating is a sign of racism? Not really, because I consider racism as the belief of superiority, and I don’t think that’s in play here. I consider it a sign of RACIAL WARFARE.
I went by his booth at the TX GOP convention. He says the demographics of the district have changed significantly as more condos have been built near downtown. I used to live in that district. It's amazing how many new upscale condos have been built there in the last 10-15 years.
Gads....more of those people who are so afraid of being called racist that they’d rather be used and trashed again and again.
seems youtube has frozen the view count on that video according to comments.
and there were comments the first time i viewed it. now they’re gone?

Two more: Ill mannered

What is it they really want? Easy. They want to RULE over the little people. They want a life of luxury and pampering paid for by their slaves. They want the ability to make life and death decisions over other people because it makes them feel powerful. They want to be accountable to no one. They are no different from any tyrant or dictator or person with a lust for power since the beginning of time.
