Another one chalked up for the liars of Congress.

This time it's none other than Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D. TX 18th) reacting to the House debate about whether to sue Obama.

In her rage, she claimed there was no effort to impeach Bush because in her words, Bush had the "authority" (to start wars, etc.) and so does Obama.

Of course, her comments had nothing to do with the coming lawsuit which has nothing to do with impeachment either.

Excellent side-stepping and moving of goalposts by Ms. Jackson-Lee.

Do they learn this stuff all by themselves or do they take lessons ?

And yet Sheila Jackson-Lee herself actually co-sponsored a bill to impeach Bush in 2008 !!

Makes people wonder who she really "represents" ?

Did she expect nobody to catch her agenda ?



In a speech on the floor of the House Wednesday, Texas U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee claimed that Democrats never sought to impeach President George W. Bush.

Not only is that claim false, but Jackson-Lee actually co-sponsored a 2008 bill to do just that and spoke in at least one House committee hearing in support of the effort.

Jackson-Lee’s remarks Wednesday came ahead of a vote on a Republican-backed measure to sue President Obama for overstepping his bounds in implementing Obamacare.

She may not be lying.

She is not very bright. She probably doesn't even know what a bill is, or impeachment for that matter. She just signs on the dotted line when her handlers tell her to do it.

Most likely.

Someone should email her this - seriously:

Yep. She's a token rep for a certain group in the Houston, Texas area.

How do you expect her to remember what bills she works. That would imply she actually does something job related.

I am looking and I have not been able to find where she co-sponsored that bill. It says it was co-sponsored by Robert Wexler.

I'll keep looking, but perhaps you have that info available?

Oh yeah she is LYING

As the Iraq War Resolution clearly says here:



The Iraq Resolution or the Iraq War Resolution (formally the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002,[1] Pub.L. 107–243, 116 Stat. 1498, enacted October 16, 2002, H.J.Res. 114) is a joint resolution passed by the United States Congress in October 2002 as Public Law No: 107-243, authorizing military action against Iraq.




Introduced in Congress on October 2, 2002, in conjunction with the Administration's proposals,[2][7] H.J.Res. 114 passed the House of Representatives on Thursday afternoon at 3:05 p.m. EDT on October 10, 2002, by a vote of 296-133,[8] and passed the Senate after midnight early Friday morning, at 12:50 a.m. EDT on October 11, 2002, by a vote of 77-23.[9] It was signed into law as Pub.L. 107–243 by President Bush on October 16, 2002.

'Never sought to impeach Bush' eh ?



During the presidency of George W. Bush, several American politicians sought to either investigate Bush for allegedly impeachable offenses, or to bring actual impeachment charges on the floor of the United States House of Representatives Judiciary Committee. The most significant of these efforts occurred on June 10, 2008, when Congressman Dennis Kucinich, along with co-sponsor Robert Wexler, introduced 35 articles of impeachment [1] against Bush to the U.S. House of Representatives.[2] The House voted 251 to 166 to refer the impeachment resolution to the Judiciary Committee on June 11, where no further action was taken on it.[3] Bush's presidency ended on January 20, 2009, with the completion of his second term in office, rendering impeachment efforts moot.

I believe she is the woman that wanted to know if the Mars lander was near where the astronauts planted the flag back in 1969. Don't expect to much from her.

Nevermind. I found it. She did, in fact, co-sponsor that bill.

Seems like she's lying.


ETA: After watching the video, one has to ask in what context she made that statement. Yes, they attempted to start the impeachment process but nothing ever came out of it. Even Pelosi put the stop to the impeachment idea.

So I guess they did not "seek out" to impeach Bush.

Here is a little bit of her wisdom:


“We have martial law. What that means – and my colleagues know what it means – is that you can put a bill on in just minutes.”

Thanks. I took me a few minutes, but I found it as well.

I suppose her comments can be taken either way. There were attempts to get the impeachment process started, but it was ended by the democrats themselves. So in one way she is lying, and in another she is telling the truth.

Guess how we take it depends on our own political bias'.

We are all REAL proud of her down here in Texas (said no one). Our country is falling apart right before our eyes! I am not talking about the Tea Party, Democrats or Republicans in particular. I am talking about the whole group of these liars and cheats that are in office. Shelia Jackson-Lee is just one of many liars in office as you all know and it is crazy how Washington has gone down the toilet. It is simply amazing to me how fast my country has lost its way. I don't even know where to start, pick a scandal, any scandal......shameful and embarrassing. The POTUS is in way over his head and Congress is not much better as a group. We got our "change" we were promised and it sucks. Elected Obama 2 times! 2 times we elected this moron.

Socialism is where we are headed here in America and it will be ugly.

She's cut from the same cloth as Maxine Waters, imo...."Dumb and Dumber" (as I recall reading somewhere).

Liars, cheats, and thieves continue to be voted in by their constituents. It floors me! Are their constituents even paying taxes?!
