Embarrassing: U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords priorities skewed

Arizona’s U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, a Democrat, of course, questions Central Command General David Petraeus regarding the military’s use of renewable energy.

Giffords, likely to be a congressional short-timer, appears oblivious to the fact that the U.S. is enmeshed in two wars and the situation in Afghanistan is destabilized. Lives of American service personnel are being lost, as the Taliban gains influence in the region and Afghan President Hamid Karzai is considering joining forces with the extremist group.

Giffords impinged on General Petraeus’ valuable time to lecture that the US Air Force uses the most energy in the planet, and that Department of Defense uses the most energy in the United States, linking this to the gulf oil disaster and her concerns about Green energy.

    This display by our illustrious congresswoman should be used in campaign ads AGAINST her. I can’t imagine how she thought she sounded the least bit bright.

    Fortunately, there are two Republicans with brains running against her. Jesse Kelly is my #1 pick, but Jonathan Paton would do a credible job. My as yet untrained puppy is a faster learner than Gabrielle Giffords is. Tsk.tsk, Gabby.

    Soldiers are dying, fighting the good fight & this idiot is worried about green energy – what a disgrace! Thanks for posting this – it needs to go out to every voter in her district!!! You do great work SeeingRed!

    So do you, Kathy! We appreciate your ‘heads up’ on this important information.

    Gen. Petraeus is under such great strain that he briefly passed out during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing earlier this week. Giffords is a nitwit.

  5. Orion says:

    Let’s do away with our military altogether. It uses far too much energy.

    Giffords has stayed too long at the fair. Vote for Jesse Kelly!

    Puppet giffords will absolutely, positively LOSE re-election in November. Jesse Kelly, an outstanding conservative with the support of duncan, pence, arpaio and dozens of other well-known conservative leaders, will win the Repub primary in August and will be the next representative from AZ’s 08th Con district. Kelly will undo giffords’ vote for the d-crat socialist healthcare nationalization, taxation, rationing and abortion atrocity and he’ll ensure that giffords’ doesn’t get a chance to support any more d-crat AMNESTY for ILLEGALS legislation.

    I agree that this should be used in the campaign against Giffords. I like Jesse Kelly, but he hasn’t agreed to co-sponsor the FairTax bill in Congress. Brian Miller knows that the FairTax is the quickest & best way to get our country on the right track economically & fiscally. He is a conservative in his core whereas Kelly is really good at speaking like a conservative. IMHO. Check out http://www.fairtax.org

    I cannot believe that Giffords said that. She is in no way a blue dog. She voted for Cap & Trade, The Healthcare Bill, Cardcheck, and opposes SB1070 that over 70% of Arizonans support. This woman has got to go. Unfortunately, it will be a very competitive race. That is why we need Jonathan Paton. He is the best shot we have at ousting her from her seat. I do like Jesse Kelly and Brian Miller too, but neither of them seem to stand a chance against her.
