Posted on 08/13/2009 10:08:44 PM PDT by ianschwartz
Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee is interviewed by Greta Van Susteren and apparently has the same problem she had a few days ago when she exhibited what Greta called "profoundly rude" behavior, answering a cell phone while a constituent asks her a question.
"Here's the problem... Let me explain something to you... One of the problems is you're not listening, and that was sort of the criticism that you weren't listening, you're on the phone..."
In the end, the Congresswoman says, "I can certainly understand if offense was taken," and if she met the constituent she ignored, Tracy Miller, she would say, "Sorry, Tracy, we can work through this... Any offense taken, I did not intend it."

I saw it, Sheila Jackson-Lee wouldn’t shut up long enough to answer any questions, kept on talking over Greta in typical liberal fashion.
Notice how Sheila Jackson-Lee kept on talking about how public option is so great and how she will try to convince “tracy” that it is a great plan. So she is basically admitting that she wants a single payer option. What a dumb bird. She went on National TV and admitted it
good photo for a caption contest...
"You look like you escaped from one of those dumbass "dum dum" Toyota Prius commercials!"
I’m of the impression that she really isn’t capable of representing anyone...not Democrats...not residents of her district...not even the special interest groups who pay her off.
Find some middle-of-the-road conservative guy in her district and run him against her. The key campaign “click”? An absolute vow that he won’t carry a cellphone in a public forum...ever.
I agree with you. But her constituents are also some of the stupidest people in the country, and they don't care that she's an idiot. Just like the people who re-elected Marion Barry after "that @#$%^" set him up.
Rats of a feather flock together....unsure who is the dumber, Lee or Obama.
Seeing for the 2nd time on Greta...the ‘dissing’ point that Greta was making and the fool Lee says “I’m glad you said that, not a “dish” in my mouth”..freakin’ moron, it’s DISS not DISH. Dumb as a box of rocks.
“DISH”...almost sounded like “DICK”
Yeah, it’s funny how Greta used the ebonics slang word, “diss” and Jackson-Lee still didn’t understand.
How these folks with under 100 IQs get elected to a government that once had some world class wisdom and brains on board is astonishing....i think their lack of acumen reflects precisely who votes for them year after year
oh I know...Messiah is 135 IQ, well whoopteedoo.
and they are not only stupid but ignorant...and arrogant too
I watched that segment and that lady wouldn’t shut the hell up. She was much less than representative. She is full of crap.
Or how about 0bama to Jackson,
What are you flapping those lips about now, you non stop motor mouth?
Hay she said she is well read..I wonder if she would have to get out a dictionary to translate this compliment?
“hey barack, we’re both TCBE’s......think whitey knows what that means”?
What’s really scary, to get where she’s at, she is considered on of the more intelligent people in her district. That my friend is scary.
Just what I’d expect from a “peterman”. Ugh. Not funny.
Clearly SJL is not at all interested in hearing what her constituents want. SJL wants to tell them what is best for them. She wants to convince them that she knows best. Her attitude is that any time spent listening to her constituents is time wasted from her telling them what she wants them to know.
Motor-mouth Sheila Jackson Lee' s intellectually facile explanation of her rude unconscionable behavior at a townhall---answering a cell phone while a cancer survivor was speaking----raises several questions. How did this rude, obnoxious woman ever get elected? Voter fraud comes to mind.
To add insult to injury she (1) first lied about her actions, (2) claimed the tape was "doctored," then, (3) told news organs she was talking to a healthcare hotline. I urge the Houston Chronicle to subpoena Lee's cell phne records to determine who exactly she was fielding phone calls from.
Lee obviously believes herself to be "The Anointed One." Lee clearly owns an imperious sense of entitlement, and expects Americans to kneel in obeisance at her feet. She had better disabuse herself of the notion that she, and she alone, gets to decide what happens to Americans' healthcare. Aint gonna happen.
Finally, I don't know where this woman came from, but Texas voters are going to send her back there ASAP.
Even morons need representation in the House, and Ms. Lee does an outstanding job. :-)
Dem Lee Takes Call During Townhall
as Health Care Question was being asked.
The hilarious thing is Lee is completely oblivious to the fact that she’s a moron-—her piece with Greta was proof positive.
That says more about the people that elect her.
"Make that an Everything pizza and two gallons of Diet Pepsi. "
"And deliver it after I get rid of these annoying constituents. "
I strongly doubt that any court would grant that, nor should it.
She isn't accused of a crime. Stupidity, nor general lying being a crime, or most of the congress would be in jail.
I am still trying to figure out what she meant by “There are no dishes coming out of my mouth.”
Could someone who knows how to do it put the squirrel in that photo of Lee talking on her cell phone.
You gusy need to cut the congresswoman a break—she has a lisp.
gusy = guys
An elected member lied to a constituent, to the press and to the Nation.........
Her cell phone image has become emblematic of an out-of- touch Congress.
LOL-—that would be a doozer of a photoshop.
Hmmmmmmm.....now that I see this (ahem) side of Lee, I think she was
cell-phoning an order of three double pizzas with four gallons of Pepsi,
and a side of three loaves of garlic bread.
No one can listen, really listen and talk at the same time.
She at least apologized, without using the normal ‘you misunderstood me’ line.
Someone all America should take pride in; another minority politico who was given a position by another re-districting exercise.
When will these half-wits get it? They aren’t ‘somebody’ or ‘some thing’, and they haven’t accomplished anything if they have to be given everything.
America DOESN’T OWE YOU ANYTHING! WE AREN’T FEELING GUILT as a result of your insipid whining. Get a grip!
How do we know that O has an IQ of 135? School records?
Yep she just can’t shut her yap and listen. She’s a rude prima donna who thinks she is specail. Wish there was a chance she’d be voted out! This must;ve really made her look bad otherwise she’s not be saying she’d apologize even though we know she wouldn’t mean a word of it.

Did she refer to herself in the third person? She has a tendency to do that I hear.
