A remarkable woman. I cried.

Sorry to say, it’s been all downhill from that moment on.

So what did the Godless Party do when it came to “under God”?

I felt sorry for her. She was no more than a prop used by the dims. I thought it pathetic they would use her in such a way.

Having her say it was probably the only way to make sure the audience wouldn’t boo.

I'm sure some did anyway.

Yeah that’s exactly how I look at it. They treat her like a trained monkey.

Me too, they have no compassion whatsoever. All she represents now is pity by the voters and votes, votes, votes.

I wonder if she knows they are using her?

And last, when they are finished with her she will fade away.

Good for her and I hope she has strength to push through this everyday.

The ‘Rats used her, and she allowed them to use her.

Let me know when she denounces what the ‘Rat Party stands for.

Agreed. I wish the woman all the best but she clearly is not relevant to anything and was being used as a prop for sentimental value.

You know the saying: You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.

She was used and exploited.

"Politics aside"

No such thing.

Anyone who aligns themselves with that criminal enterprise political party (Democrat) has to be forewarned what it’s about so she made her “choice”. I feel for her; but I’m sure she’s well set for life. Aligning with the party of abortion (dead babies) might be worth thinking about before you do it. Not that I’m saying she deserved being shot; and am sorry that it happened.

While I am sorry for what happened to the woman, they need to quit trotting her out like a damn trick pony. :(

Gabby always was a tool for the Party. I live in her district, and I don’t miss her. You see, I remember her lies, her arrogance, her refusal to meet with constituents (unless they had money)...I remember protesting with a great many others outside her office to try to get her to hold meetings...no, I don’t miss her. She was always a Democrat first and American second...or maybe third or fourth.

***Yeah that’s exactly how I look at it. They treat her like a trained monkey.***

Kind of like when Sarah Brady and Jim Brady (Republicans) were the first speakers at the Dem convention in 1996.

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords Recites the Pledge of Allegiance at the DNC

I'm glad she was able to but she should be more discerning in her choice of friends. The wretched woman who escorted her onstage ruined the moment.

You know what? I feel the same way... But how about some flashbacks from the Left:

If a nutjob more liberal than even Giffords hadn’t decided to shoot her and a bunch of others (but her being the target because she wasn’t leftist enough, and didn’t support Pelosi for minority speaker),

she wouldn’t need recovery.

Not that I saw but her husband spoke about them after the convention in an interview with Greta. He seemed to care even if DWS was more interested in the optics and prop effects.

Bingo! It took 25 post to see the truth. He is totally responsible for this farce. I wish her the best with the recovery, but I really wish the two of them would retire to a very beautiful place and spend the rest of their years there. Because the incident happened while “on duty”, she will receive 100 percent of her salary for the rest of her life and he will retire (or is) from the Navy so they should be fine for their retirements. Now go away and enjoy yourselves!!
