VIDEO: Greta To Sheila Jackson-Lee: "You're Not Listening Again"
Real Clear Politics ^ | August 14, 2009 | Real Clear Politics

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.

This Houston goofball who once asked if that little go cart on Mars could be driven over to the location where the astronauts planted the flag ( uh that was on the moon), is a master of filibuster. I wish Greta had displayed the nerve that fellow did a week ago to Babs Boxer and had the engineer pipe the mic down on her.

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

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.

It would have been laughable if not so annoying--every Dem symptom in full mode. Jackson-Lee started talking and her tongue wagged at both ends. She was on a roll--like the tide coming in--wave after wave with no break.

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.

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

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.

The hilarious thing is Lee is completely oblivious to the fact that she’s a moron-—her piece with Greta was proof positive.

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.

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.

Reasons enough.

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!
