    Huh...really? How can you say something like that when you were the co-sponsor of the impeachment bill that accused Bush of "High Crimes"?

    Link

    She misspoke? LOL Oh, so that's what lying is called now by the Democrats?

    Maybe she (and that bill) were seeking impeachment for reasons other than "pushed this nation into a war that had little to do with apprehending terrorists".

    What was the basis of the impeachment bill? Torture or something that Bush didn't have "authority" to pursue?

    Misspoke is spin for "said something stupid and wants to walk it back." And it's not specific to Democrats.

    The bill accused President Bush of 25 crimes, ranging from "Violation of the Posse Comitatus Act" and "Creating a Secret Propaganda Campaign to Manufacture a False Claim for War Against Iraq" to "Endangering the Health of 9/11 First Responders" and "Misleading Congress and the American people in An Attempt to Destroy Medicare."

    The republicans did push to end their benefits.

    That is true, Iraq was a lie.

    That is true as well.

    Yep, thats true as well.

    While I would have voted for that bill, yes, she's 100% full of crap in her assertion that she didn't support impeachment about the war in Iraq, etc.

    Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee (D-TX) is clueless and probably the dumbest member of Congress.

    This is the same Congresswomen who--during a tour of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California--asked NASA officials if the Mars Pathfinder probe "had taken a picture of that flag Neil Armstrong planted in 1969."

    Maxine Waters is far dumber, but even she still has nothing on Carolyn McCarthy who is probably the most useless senior member of the legislative.
