Sheila Jackson Lee: Obama Pushed to Amnesty by GOP 'Sprinkling Water on a Bleeding Sore'
Breitbart ^ | 29 Jul 2014 | Pam Key

Posted on 07/31/2014 8:22:12 AM PDT by LucianOfSamasota

Tuesday on MSNBC's "NewsNation with Tamron Hall," Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) said President Barack Obama should go ahead with his reported plans to give amnesty to 5 to 6 million illegal immigrants because the House Republicans won't pass the Senate's version of comprehensive immigration reform.

The Texas Democrat said, "I would applaud the president because all we're doing is taking a sore, bleeding sore and watching it bleed, continue to be infected, and sprinkling water on top of it. That's what the Republicans are doing."

Hard to believe Sheila Jackson Lee grew up in America.

I apologize in advance for inflicting her rhetoric upon the rational.

Sheila Jackson Lee is a great example of how a stupid, lazy person is okay with the idea of dictatorship as long as the dictator is giving her free stuff. Its why a large chunk of this country — black and white — is not upset with Obama’s outrageous trashing of the Constitution. He’s handing out government goodies so he has to be the good guy, fighting those evil Scrooge Republicans.

The fact that her constituents are not embarrassed by her, and continue to re-elect her, does not say much about their intelligence or judgement.

A lot of her “constituents” are transplants from the 9th Ward in New Orleans that moved after Hurricane Katrina. Instead of robbing Liquor stores in New Orleans, they are now robbing them in Houston. Ooops, talk like that will get me labeled a “Racist”.

The never-ending Ted Kennedy lie

Perhaps I should have said ‘another’, because there were many. Regardless, Ted Kennedy’s name, the so-called ‘Lion of the Senate’, keeps coming up in this amnesty push...er, I mean, immigration reform. Well, all you have to do to get a good idea of how this will all work out is to take a look at the Lion’s statements over the years (via theTownCrier)...

Here is Ted Kennedy commenting on the 1965 immigration bill: “The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission.”

Ted Kennedy on the 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli Bill: “This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this.”

Ted Kennedy(2007) on the McCain/Kennedy immigration proposal: “The plan will strengthen our borders and our national security while providing a tough but fair path to citizenship for millions of people.”
Have our borders and national security been strengthened or secured from any of these bills/proposals? Have our cities not been flooded? Has American culture and society not been disrupted by such balkanizing, multi-culti phenomenon? And lastly, what happened to “We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this.”...?!?! Lies and damn lies...

Ted Kennedy pushed SEVEN amnesties into law. None was followed by a reduction in illegal immigration.

My poor sister is stuck in her district, because she lives in a part of Houston not far from IAH. It is actually a fairly nice neighborhood because the airport forms a nice barrier from Jackson Lee's people.

Even the marginally sane local Democrats have reached out to her and her neighborhood by putting up qualified primary challengers with the most important qualification (skin color) but to no avail. The inmates run the asylum.

She came to Texas when her husband became another affirmative action hire at the University. Of Houston. Proving they are even stupider than she is, the welfare voters in the 18th congressional district in Houston have voted for this moron since 1996, representing this bunch of parasites in their quest for Free Stuff while she impersonates a queen. Texas is not proud of this bottom of the barrel import.

From Wikipedia: In 2011 she was reported to have one of the highest staff turnovers in Congress and to be one of the worst bosses. The Huffington Post and Houston Chronicle reported that she had gone through 11 chiefs of staff in 11 years.[15][16] In 2011 she was named as one of the “worst bosses in Washington” by “Daily Caller” [17] The Huffington Post stated that “Jackson Lee regularly appears on Washingtonian magazine's list of the “Best and Worst of Congress” as the “meanest” member of House of Representatives.” [15][18] That reputation as the worst boss on Capital Hill continued;in 2012 Washingtonian again listed her as the meanest member of the House,[19] a report in 2013 concluded that “the veteran Texas Democrat had the highest turnover rate for all of Congress over the past decade.”

She keeps a chauffeured car waiting for her to appear for the short drive to her office and back. Known as Queen Sheila she's the woman you see at every SOTU hanging over the aisle for a photo op with the president. It's hard to believe she is married to a professor at U of H. I can't imagine what a dinner conversation must be like between them. Bet he does not have the courage to correct her,shall we say, colorful, language
