Congresswoman Schakowsky: Those Tea Party people actually believe in … the Constitution?

I wish that were the worst thing she had to say but it isn’t. How about …. these people actually believe in things like the 10th amendment, “Oy”. Ummm that wasn’t me with the oy, that was part of her quote. Entry question: Is she the only one in Congress who thinks like this?

Just for the record the 1oth Amendment reads, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Ughhh, the people? Really? No one really believe that of the people stuff, do they? Well as the One once said, the Constitution is good as far as it goes … but it only says what the government can’t do.” Precisely Mr. President. I think they had Congresswoman Schakowsky in mind when they wrote it. From Naked Emporer News, via Hot Air.

Schakowsky, by the way, is the same person who told a rally that the idea behind Obamacare was to drive the insurance companies out of business. I thought that was crazy. But ya know, I’ve now watched this three times. It is pretty outrageous, huh?

    Oy…why do liberal women such as Pelosi, Allred, Waters, Hillary and Shakowsky look so haggard all the time?  Could it be that those bags under their eyes are a result of all the late night socialist study groups and the constant anger they harbor toward people who actually believe in the Constitution and (gasp) following it?

    I'm always amazed at how much liberals talking to each other on talk radio remind me of Beavis and Butt-head talking to each other while watching videos.

    Without the humor.  Or the intelligence.  Or the wit.

    And don't forget the fine upstanding man she's married to (perfect match) even with his criminal past
    The Huffington's of the world have nothing but praise;

    "Robert Creamer has been a political organizer and strategist for almost four decades. He and his firm, the Strategic Consulting Group, work with many of the country’s most significant issue campaigns. He was one of the major architects and organizers of the successful campaign to defeat the privatization of Social Security. He is a consultant to the campaigns to end the war in Iraq, pass universal health care, change America’s budget priorities and enact comprehensive immigration reform. He has also worked on hundreds of electoral campaigns at the local, state and national level. Creamer is married to Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky from Illinois"

    HOW DO THESE PEOPLE GET RE-ELECTED! If PT was alive today he would say there's a Suck voting ever minute.

    I enjoy it when my enemies come right out and reveal themselves!  This woman is an enemy of the state.  She has sworn to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States of America and now spits on it.  Impeachment, if not censure, may be in store for this "Representative".

    Please support her opponent Joel Pollak:
    Today, Mr. Pollak has launched an ethics charge against Rep. Schakowsky, the net is cast wider:

    Just another refugee from a cuckoo clock.

    I think I know the type – Do everything for those capable of doing for themselves. and then complain about having to babysit.

    Am I missing something here? – Don't educated, self sufficeint people make and spend better money than those who aren't? 

    Doesn't a well trained populous lead by true leaders win every time over a conscripted mob driven by whips, fear and threats?

    And doesn't her talk constitute hate speach?

    Isn't it amazing how LITTLE the electorate knows about each candidate/representative?  She's been in Congress for a dozen years and I'll bet her opinions regarding the Constitution and the American people aren't new.  Thank God the Tea Party has smoked out the real Liberals for who they are – she may win her seat again, and in that case shame on her constituents for not demanding anything better, but the lines are more clearly drawn and there will be a 'next time' for these people.

    You have our "dedicated" mainstream media to thank for that.  What little information they deign to publish is usually incomplete and predictably subjective.  To wit: remember how Tom Brokaw (on the Charlie Rose show) said, a mere three days before the 2008 elections, that "we" don't know what books Øbama reads, what his worldview was, how he sees China, who was advising him etc.  In short, they said that the essentially knew nothing about him except from what he wrote in his autobiography and his speeches.  And they still don't.


    Talk about being sold a bill of goods!


    And they still don't care to go and find out.  But they will spend inordinate amounts of time on pounding Christine O'Donnell about dabbling in witchcraft in high school!  See a pattern here? (hint: it can be directly correlated with the party affiliation of the majority of so called journalists.
