The people of his district must be proud.

Who here doesn't think this guy won't have a job come next November?

And which Republican Congressmen are making their districts proud? Who is making you proud?

I'm quite happy with my Congressman. He actually doesn't go around saying the ADL is full of crazy racists.

And who said this and what's your source? Because so far it's a right wing website that is claiming this but they have no source cited, did you hear Rush say it? Why do you fall for this?

So once again who are your proud of?

It's a blog post by Grayson's top advisor, who also called John McCain a "crazy, cancer-ridden dishonest madman," neither of which are statements that Grayson has come out and denounced, so it does make one wonder if he doesn't find those statements outrageous.

The Democrats don't necessarily have a "plan" either. Republican Paul Ryan presented a "plan" so that isn't necessarily a true statement by Grayson. If there was a plan that the Dumocrats could actually stand with, then maybe something would pass (I personally hope it doesn't happen). The supposed "plan" that the Dems keep working on continues to "change," as the weeks go by and it's laughable to say that they have a concrete plan when it seems to be in flux every so often.

ANd sometimes Obama is too close to center for me. But he already has done some very good things, ,so I will disagree strongly when I have to, and cheer ever louder when he does wonderful things!!!

Look, he can still make his points without alluding to the Holocaust, calling Republicans names, or saying Republicans want people to die. That distracts from the issues and only causes problems (alah Axis of Evil, anyone?). He is not Ed Schultz or Keith Olbermann. If he really wants to be critical and name call, maybe he should do to that to his own party members instead of the Republicans, considering they (the Democrats) are the ones holding up their REFORM effort up. THE DEMS have BOTH the HOUSE and the super-majority in the Senate. THEY OWN the PRESIDENCY! Healthcare reform doesn't need the Repubs. The DEMOCRATS DON'T NEED the REPUBS TO PASS ANYTHING. So what is the hold up? Grayson should focus his anger on his own party. LOL

The source has been found false many many times. You should be embarassed. Why? Why do you fall for this shit?

I just want one name. Who impresses you on the Republican side? You make such a bold statement based on lies, you believe the worse, you fall for the propaganda, I'm just curious who you really believe in?

If your privately held personal opinion is that some poster or another is a mere rationally incapacitated child, which is exactly what your tone here suggests, then stop wasting your breath interrogating them.

If in fact you assume them to be a reasonable adult capable of engaging in debate like yourself, then why not act like it by calmly relaying the link, post, line of argument, or whatever which you believe shows them wrong, then relax, sit back, and give them a chance to let their ability (or not) to make an equally effective counterargument speak for itself. You don't need to be this condescending to convey your own sense of moral urgency about a topic.

I had an extaordinarily busy week so I actually have no idea who this guy is or what all the bruhaha is. Therefore I have no idea what district he represents but frankly there are all sorts of people sitting in Congress that I find shocking so no, I wouldn't necessarily be surprised if he stays.

As I see it it was the first Democrat (he's from downtown Orlando) who used pretty much the same language some Republicans have been using for years, and now the Republicans cry foul.

What do men who "squat on top of a woman's (or man's) face and lowering one's genitalia into a person's mouth during sex," have anything to do with Grayson (or were you referring to people who carried large bags of tea)?

Sarah Palin can say whatever she wants about death panels considering she said it as a private citizen just as Janeane Garofalo can call out a whole movement of protesters as racist and hating the black man. Grayson, as an elected public official, is an entirely different animal especially considering the Joe Wilson flap.

But it's so cute and funny when people like Irvine and Rachel Maddow use that phrase. People who use that phrase don't make themselves sound stupid at all.
