Can Politicians get any dumber

Let us take a look at some very prominent Democrats

Sheila Jackson Lee

“I believe this caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength.” 

“Let us vote to provide for unemployment insurance for working men and women so that faces across America will not have the tear of desperation on their faces.”

“Don’t condemn the gangbangers, they’ve got guns that are trafficked, that are not enforced, that are straw purchased and they come into places even that have strong gun laws.  Why? Because we don’t have sensible gun legislation.”

“I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together.”

“I don’t care anything about your disability.”

“And I want to say to my colleagues that I stand here asking us to do what we did not do in Vietnam.  Was to recognize the valiant and outstanding service of our men and women.  And to understand that victory had been achieved.  Today we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working.  We may not agree with all North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace.  I would look for better human rights record for North Vietnam, but they’re living side by side.  Because that was a civil war.  And because the leadership of this nation did not listen to the mothers and fathers who borned the burden of 58,000 dead and did not declare victory, the mounting death, the violence continued going up and up.  Rather than understanding the political nature of the war in Vietnam, we did not listen to those families.”

and she took an oath to defend the Constitution.  Maybe she should go back to school.  Better yet the people of Texas need to vote her out.

Cory Booker

“Being asked to pay your fair share in taxes is not class warfare. It’s patriotism,”

I want to see That car.  Cory, has an excuse, he went to public school.

Barack Obama

Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under a McCain…administration.  It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under an Obama administration. So that policy is not going to change.

On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.

I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go.

“No, no. I have been practicing…I bowled a 129. It’s like — it was like Special Olympics, or something.” –making an off-hand joke during an appearance on “The Tonight Show”, March 19, 2009

“The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system.” –in remarks after a health care roundtable with physicians, nurses and health care providers, Washington, D.C., July 20, 2009

“One such translator was an American of Haitian descent, representative of the extraordinary work that our men and women in uniform do all around the world — Navy Corpse-Man Christian Brossard.” –mispronouncing “Corpsman” (the “ps” is silent) during a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, Washington, D.C., Feb. 5, 2010 (The Corpsman’s name is also Christopher, not Christian)

The list can go on and on.  My simple questions is this…why would you want to elect someone like this once let alone two (2) or more times?  We need higher standards for what is considered intelligent.  What we have now just does not cut the mustard.

Is it any wonder we are falling fast?
