Legally speaking, she can stay in office because she's broken no law, but that doesn't mean people aren't allowed to be upset and ask for her resignation.
One of you will end up here next!
The GOP will pressure her to resign because the one thing they don't want is to have to sink money into trying to defend her when election time comes. She should take responsibility for her own choices and her own actions and resign. She can't be forced to, but there is some personal responsibility that comes into play -- her responsibility for what she said.
Such antics is racist, plain and simple. But it's not just this GOP congresswoman who has done this throughout the Obama presidency. Recently, Rush made a similar depiction while attempting to mask it in Darwinism - the same tactics torn from the pages of gutter politics used at the height of Conservatism. Such depictions have been going on against Blacks since long before WWI and were a common depiction of black politicians throughout the history of our nation's politics since the in the 1930's and 40's. So, this is nothing new.
Nonetheless, it is still remarkable (and just as offensive) seeing this type of gutter politics take place in a post-Civil Rights era. This is why I've said racism, particularly between Blacks and Whites, should end (Can We Talk? Topic: Race Relations in America) if for no other reason than because short of landing on the moom we, as African Americans, have achieved everything our White counterparts have achieved. We really do need to get beyond such stupid and disrespectful acts.
