SJL: Debt Limit Fight is Racism
Sheila Jackson Lee explains that if President Obama wasn't black, the debt limit would have been raised like it has been for every other president.
"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.
"Read between the lines," she 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?"
What I'm always wondering with these sorts of diatribes is does the speaker believe what she's saying. One might assume that SJL is dumb or indoctrinated or whatever - and that she believes it completely. But I notice her performance skills, her adjustment of volume and intensity and pace, and I see that she's a savvy performer, and I think that maybe she's like the lot of them.
Maybe she's just as malicious as the rest of the libs, playing the race card to maintain the viscosity of her base, fully cognizant of just how destructive she's being.
