Because the President is black. That’s the only reason.
“Read between the lines,” she (Sheila Jackson-Lee) continued. “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, something required by both statute and the 14th amendment?”
“I am particularly sensitive to the fact that only this president — only this one, only this one — has received the kind of attacks and disagreement and inability to work, only this one,” said Jackson Lee from the House floor.
I guess Ms. Jackson-Lee forgot all about Bush Hitler, the miserable failure, the war criminal and the one ordering his troops to act like nazis, or whatever that dumbass Dick Durbin said. But I digress.
Resistance to increasing the debt by $20,000 per family is just a racial thing. I get it now. Shame on me.
Oh wait! I remember how attentive she was to her own constituents in that Town Hall a couple of years back during the healthcare debate, which also got resistance because the President is black.
Meanwhile, the President was making up stuff in his presser today in which he claimed that 80% of Americans support a tax increase in conjunction with a Debt Limit increase.
Rasmussen says 55% do NOT support a tax increase. Gallup says 50%. Of course, when 47% don’t even pay Federal taxes, not only don’t they care if others have their taxes increased, they are often the recipients of the ill gotten booty.
