I was sickened listening to my local CHRISTIAN radio station (Moody) as it ran a long story about how JFK's daughter gave the Profiles in Courage award to GG. The entire presentation was a commercial for gun control.
The award should have gone to her husband , he is the one pushing her to these affairs.
Not that he does it out of courage, but to keep himself in the limelight AKA Ms. Brady.
These a$$wipes seems to have missed one important fact: Nothing she is advocating will reduce gun violence.
Why is this liberal twit receiving the award?
She was shot and survived; it doesn’t take any courage to get shot and then deal with it. It’s something you just have to do to live. This award is like the ones given to the team members who weren’t that good, but wanted a trophy for showing up.
There isn't anything brave or heroic about getting shot. There isn't anything brave or heroic about shilling for gun control either. The woman was a liberal a**hole before she got shot. She's a liberal a**hole now. She will doubtless continue to be a liberal a**hole in the future.
Googy Giffords is the new antigun poster child. The purpose of the award is to show she got shot.
Libs got nothing better to do than make up stupid awards to give themselves.
Profile in courage? Did she come out as gay?
I’m really getting sick of this adulation and exaltation of a common Democrat ‘token.’
The standard reply to any article or news item bearing the hallmark of Giffords (or the money grubbing husband) being a gun-control advocate should be accompanied first by a picture of her pandering for votes by shooting the very weapons for which she now “articulates” (ha) control.
Many people in this country get shot and survive. What about our brave military dealing with injuries far worse than GG’s? Where are their “awards”?
Gabby G. was a low level politician, not a hero. And her husband and the lefties should be ashamed of themselves for using her a pawn. There was no reason for her to resurface again as a public figure or do anything other than spend the rest of her life in recovery from her injuries in private.
She was comped salary-wise way past the time that she should have been,,ie she didn’t resign and the taxpayers paid for noone to legislate from her office.
I’m sick of seeing her. She is altered and cannot make rational decisions.
She is a profile in communism.
Everybody gets a trophy!
Surrounded by dozens of men with guns.
Her heroism amounts to what: She stopped a bullet . . . not that she saw the shooter and stepped in front of someone else to prevent him from getting shot . . . but . . . that she stopped a bullet.
Lord A’Mighty, Colonel, that’d be like giving Obambi a Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing . . . Oh, that’s right, they already did that.
Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords received the 2013 Profile in Courage award at the John F. Kennedy Library on Sunday in recognition of the political, personal, and physical courage she has demonstrated in her fearless public advocacy for policy reforms aimed at reducing gun violence.
Another “award” becomes meaningless drivel.
Didn’t the US Navy just name a ship for her?
*historical note: The winner of this award is selected by members of the KENNEDY CLAN. The first winner was Gov. Lowell Weicker, for having the COURAGE to impose an income tax on Connecticut.
But it takes no courage at all to take the easy, popularly approved, know-nothing gun grabbing position. All you have to do is spout the usual liberal inanities, and you are beloved by all.
I assure you, she is a willing victim.
