The Next Time You Hear a Liberal Lecturing About the Need for ‘Civility’ …

. . . your answer is three simple words — Sheila Jackson-Lee:

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, suggested during a House floor speech Friday that raising the debt ceiling was being held up by members of Congress because President Obama is black.
“Only this president — only this one — only this one has received the kind of attacks and disagreements and inability to work,” she said. “Only this one. Read between the lines.”
“What is different about this president that should put him in a position that he should not receive the same kind of respectful treatment of when it is necessary to raise the debt limit in order to pay our bills?” she added. . . .
In the minority community that is the question that is being raised. Why is this president being treated so disrespectfully?”

To the sin of racial demagoguery, Jackson-Lee adds also blatant hypocrisy because (as Don Surber reminds us) she voted against raising the debt ceiling when Bush was president. And y’know who else voted against raising the debt ceiling during the Bush administration?

Yeah. Senator Barack Hussein Obama, who said increased federal debt was the result of “reckless fiscal policies” and “failed leadership.” And he certainly is a world-class expert on those subjects.

I hope and pray that when the Texas legislature re-draws their congressional district lines, they find some way to force Jackson-Lee into a primary battle against another Democrat. Then liberals will get a taste of what kind of “civility” she practices.
