Rep. Jackson Lee Compares Bush Tax Cuts to Iranian Hostage Crisis

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee compared the Bush tax cuts to the Iranian hostage crisis.
Why? Your guess is as good as mine.
Via Newsbusters:

Another brilliant lib.

Newsbusters reported:

We saw what happened when Iran took hostages in 1979. A president lost his re-election. The prestige of the United States was challenged.

I am not going to be taken hostage again to extend the Bush tax cuts when every economist says that it’s absolutely absurd forever and points to the fact that no jobs are necessarily created by extending the Bush tax cuts, at least on the top one percent of Americans, and when the top one percent population polled have said that they have no problem with losing that ludicrous benefit forever and ever. And then, when everyone understands the question of mutual sacrifice, benefit and sacrifice, with all of our soldiers coming home we’re now going to talk about being held hostage to the Bush tax cuts forever.

Sheila Jackson Lee is really out of her league in this Congress and needs to find different employment. Doesn’t the SEIU have any openings? Maybe the DMV?

    She really needs to find different employment.
    She is not even fit for the world’s oldest profession .


    crawl back under your rock you ignorant POS ghetto trash

  • NeoKong

    Wow….she really fit a lot of stupid in that one little minute.
    So apparently all economists agree that raising taxes is a good thing and rich people cannot wait to pay more and keeping their money is some sort of “benefit”.

  • Mother Superior

    Sheila Jackson Lee is really out of her league in this Congress.

    Mierda. She’d be out of her league teaching cooking to 2nd graders… in Special Ed

  • Clutch

    C’mon, we got rid of our “cutest little communist” Cynthia “Bat$hit Krayzee-eyes” McKinney a couple of years ago, somebody run against her.

  • Granny

    Where the hell do this complete and total idiots come from?

  • tru

    How come when ever Democrats are in the minority they call themselves hostages?

    When Republicans are in the minority they call us irrelevant.

  • American Patriot

    I think there really is a parallel with the Iran Hostage Crisis. We, as taxpayers, whether rich or far less than rich, are being held hostage by the slimes and scum who have been milking us dry with their Welfare “entitlements” since the dawn of the so-called Great Society BS. Bet that fat slob has never done an honest day’s work in her life. The operative word is “honest.”

  • Remco Kimber

    Affirmative action baby all the way. Has never done an honest day’s work.

    I understand people deserve the representatives they vote for, but why do I have to suffer the AA elite?

  • Patriot Act

    Aside from the incoherence of her rambling statement, I suppose she’s right that extending the tax cuts won’t *create* jobs. But letting the tax cuts expire will *destroy* jobs. I guess she and “every economist” are down with that.

    I’d also like to see this supposed poll of one-percenters. Where can I find it, Sheila, you lying gasbag?

    Because she’s stupid?

  • uncivil & right

    Get rid of the entire CBC, racist commies and stupid to boot.

  • RedBeard

    She’s underqualified for just about any job, including the one that brings to mind “Ding! Fries are done!”

  • Common Sense

    Give Obama whatever he wants for the next 11 months. It surely won’t fix anything and he and his minions won’t have anything to complain about.

    It’s a small price to pay to get him out of the White House.

  • bobbi85710

    It must escape her notice that once again the Iranian Hostage Crisis was under another DemocRATic POS POTUS, i.e. Jimmy “I’m Nuts” Carter. And the REAL fiscal problems are directly a result of her “Duh” leader the Obogus One.

    i’d say Congress is Certifiable..

    but where would that leave US??

    dumbed down & hoping for change..

    oh wait.. /s/


  • Molon Labe

    I think she serves as an excellent role model for black women. Most of them would have to tone done their half back manners and cut their coke consumption to get to the same crazy train level. Let’s face it, she represents her district. She probably is a moersate for her district too.

  • Harry Randolph

    Everybody just laughs at what Sheila Jackson Lee has to say, so why pay any attention to her? She’d be better suited working in a fine restaurant cleaning up.

  • Gerry

    #1 Goodwrench….2nd time today I had to comment,”eeeeewwwww, would not,could not”

  • Path

    We should be so lucky that somebody kept her in check – as to a job, well, she sure doesn’t belong where she is – perhaps delivering papers, selling dog food……………?

  • Espresso Logic – The 6th Sense

    There is nothing more pathetic than a fat, ugly, stupid, liberal, black woman. They are the lowest of the low.

    How the hell do these morons get elected?

    Never mind.

  • Larkin

    As absurd and irrelevant as this woman is, she still manages to get elected to national office.

    I think it’s time that we started to focus on the morons who actually VOTE for her.

  • Rose

    Drop her from an airplane over Iran and let’s see what she says after she walks the whole long way back without any ransom being paid for her release.

    And don’t forget to forget the parachute.

  • Rose

    #24 Larkin – RATHER focus on the humongous amount of Voter FRAUD uncovered in the Houston area just the last few years – a la ACORN and DIM PARTY, thank you!

    And YOU take that ignert idiot Jackson Lee home under YOUR roof! Let her manage your household the rest of your LIFE.

  • squeaky

    [[Shawn Carter — the winner of multiple Grammy Awards who is better known by his stage name — said in an interview Friday that he personally isn’t bothered by the idea of paying more taxes.]] that was jay-z who most recently was looking to make money off teeshirts in honor of ows but reluctant to turn over part of the profit to the same folks. as someone pointed out he can opt to pay more taxes……and tell me he really thinks he can tag his taxes to go to his special interest.

    You’re welcome to go influence the voters in her district if you’ld like.
    But I’ve got to tell you — you don’t even want to drive through there.

    That woman is crazy!!
    And so are the people who push the button for her in the booth!!

    The University of Houston has been trying to pull money together to move out of that area for years. No one is safe down there.

    (I have to admit though: If she’s ever defeated, we will miss making fun of her)

  • Militant Conservative

    16 TRILLION for the war on poverty. (LBJ) how did that work out????

    You bastards in congress can spend money but you can’t think.

    Taking from those who can to give to those who will not is not helping.

    Your killing the can do people and creating more of the welfare queens.

    You have already destroyed the black family now your out for all the rest of us.

    You make me sick, We are going to make you pay with your seat.

    powder is dry

    Remember whe Daniel Patrick Moynihan had a report that ghovt/lefty policies were ruiningthe black family.
    and they made him withdraw it

  • Callipygian1

    What does this say about her constituents? Especially in light of her continued re-elections.

  • Rose

    Says a lot about ACORN FRAUD in Houston. Remember the warehouse fire with the voting machines slated for investigation? like 10,000 MACHINES up in flames.

    That tells us that EVEN IN HOUSTON, she don’t have much support.

    She is the Saddam Hussein of Texas.

    Hey you RACIST Lee! They are now the OBAMA TAX CUTS!
