This is why we elected Rep. Jackie Speier to Congress this week.
Within moments of being sworn in, Rep. Speier was not afraid to start telling the folks in DC what most Americans believe – it’s time to leave Iraq. For her efforts she got booed by the GOP do-nothings, who want endless war, but of course, don’t believe in actually fighting the wars themselves.
Notably, Rep. Darrel Issa (R- Syria) stormed out of the chamber. You may not remember this sorry excuse for a Congressman – but he’s the guy who openly attacks those who worked rescue on 9/11 in NYC, over and over and over again.
But it’s easy to see why Rep. Issa is confused. He loves cozying up to murderous dictators like Assad of Syria, but he doesn’t seem to like Americans who defended this country against Al-Qaeda. Maybe he should move to Syria if he likes it so much over there.
If Rep. Speier’s truth-telling can drum a nimrod like him out of the House, well then that’s a 2-fer as far as I’m concerned. Go Jackie!
