    Myabe she has, and maybe she hasn't. I really don't know. Not my congress critter. I only argue you can't reach that conclusion based on this statement and in this context. For the record, her spokesperson after words denied that as meaning. We're no obligation to believe her, but we shouldn't dismiss the claim either without any evidence to the contrary.

    Maybe not but she will claim it was because she is black.

    So if she didn't say what she means she's a liar, right? Or maybe she just misspoke? Misspeaking would have been if she had said she was a conservative.

    Your evidence is in the video. You heard what I heard. When's one is angry is exactly when the truth comes out.

    It's not up to me to prove she did or didn't act on something she said. You disprove it, or maybe you would like to retract the statement now.

    I restated what she said and you responded acrimoniously in her defense. That's kind of interesting though, you trying to get others to believe her words mean something other than what she said.

    I'm sure she would appreciate your consolation though, you both being self-proclaimed liberals.

    No. Shes a person who is upset and struggling. We all say stupid **** sometimes. Again, prove she has proposed a government take over, that she is working to create government control of production. This would mean something. Can you do it?

    So it seems that this was a case of kicking your dog after coming home from a bad day at work. Waters knew her complaints originate from the White House but she wasn't able to bring herself to direct them there so she picked a convienent scapegoat to blame them on.

    "We’re supportive of the president, but we getting tired, y’all,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said in August. “We want to give [Obama] every opportunity, but our people are hurting. The unemployment is unconscionable. We don’t know what the strategy is."

    Rather than targeting Obama’s leadership, many CBC members aimed their fire at the Tea Party movement over the summer’s congressional recess. Waters said in a public meeting in her district that the Tea Party "can go straight to hell." Another member, Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), called the Tea Party “the real enemy” seeking to hold Congress “hostage.”


    Cleaver: If Obama wasn't president, we would be

    Cleaver acknowledged that some of the things members of his caucus say might not be in the best interests of the “aggressive agenda” he said he is seeking to develop as chairman.

    “Maxine Waters represents central Los Angeles first and she has to represent her constituents first and she's going to say things in order to represent them,” he said.

    I backed the "Tea Party" up to the point they chose the GOP umbrella to run under. As far as I am concerned the "Tea Party" is nothing more than defected Republicans that do not know who or what they are?

    Give me a break. Waters is worthless and is not worthy of our attention.

    Without the voted of illegal aliens she would never be heard of.

    If it were not for the illegal votes of illegal aliens she would be on welfare, beause she is just another dumb ass.

    The Tea Party consists of different races, creeds and party affiliations. The Tea Party does not consist of Republicans ONLY. Sorry...Your statement is 100% wrong.
    Catch me if you can.
