This would definitely put obama at the head of the dumbest man ever to hold office.

Sheila Jackson Lee - Discover the Networks

Some high points of Lee's political life:
Quote:
In 1994 Lee ran for Congress. One of her major backers was local executive Kenneth Lay of Enron, later to fall amid a national scandal.

During her congressional career, Lee has voted: against the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001;
against the post-9/11 anti-terrorism measure known as the Patriot Act;
against allowing the U.S. government to use electronic surveillance to investigate suspected terrorist operatives;
against a bill permitting the government to combat potential terrorist threats by monitoring foreign electronic communications which are routed through the United States;
against an October 2002 joint resolution authorizing U.S. military action in Iraq;
against the establishment of military commissions to try enemy combatants captured in the war on terror;
in favor of withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq immediately and by a preordained date;
against President Bush’s 2007 decision to deploy some 21,500 additional U.S. soldifers in an effort to quell the violent insurgents in Iraq;
in favor of a proposal to expedite the transfer of all prisoners in the Guantanamo Bay detention center;
against requiring hospitals to report (to the federal government) illegal aliens who receive emergency medical treatment;
against the Real ID Act, which proposed to set minimal security requirements for state driver licenses and identification cards;
against separate proposals calling for the construction of some 700 miles of fencing to prevent illegal immigration along America's southern border;
against a proposal to grant state and local officials the authority to investigate, identify, and arrest illegal immigrants;
against major tax cut proposals in September 1998, February 2000, March 2000, July 2000, May 2001, May 2003, and May 2006;
against separate welfare reform bills designed to move people off the welfare rolls and into paying jobs;
in favor of prohibiting oil and gas exploration in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR);
against a proposal to fund offshore oil exploration along the Outer Continental Shelf;
against a school-voucher proposal in Washington, DC; and
against ending racial preferences in college admissions (When Texas A&M President Robert Gates announced in 2003 that he was changing his university’s admission preference standard from race to socioeconomic disadvantage, Lee accused Gates of attempting to create an “all-white university.”)

In 2000 Lee joined seven fellow Progressive Caucus members and one Republican in signing a letter that called on President George W. Bush to “de-link” economic sanctions from military sanctions against Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq. This would have allowed Hussein to receive economic aid while refusing to honor his previous agreements to verifiably dismantle his weapons programs.

According to the AFL-CIO, Lee has a 100 percent pro-union voting record. In 2003 she spoke at a rally in support of organized labor’s Immigrant Worker's Freedom Ride, an effort to liken the unionizing of illegal aliens to the African-American civil-rights struggle of the 1950s and 1960s.
Among Lee's largest campaign contributors are the American Association for Justice and the Service Employees International Union.

One of Lee's crusades as a Representative of subtropical Gulf Coast Houston has been to end what she calls the government policy of giving hurricanes “lily white” names. “All racial groups should be represented,” she told The Hill Magazine, adding that she hoped the weather establishment in the future “would try to be inclusive of African American names” such as “Keisha, Jamal and Deshawn.”

Lee has called for improved relations between the United States and Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela, which she characterizes as a friendly nation. Toward that end, she has called for the U.S. to lift its ban on selling F-16 fighter jets and spare parts to Chavez.

Prior to the 110th Congress, Lee served on the House Science Committee and on the Subcommittee that oversees space policy. During a 2005 visit to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, Lee asked a guide whether the Mars Pathfinder had taken a photograph of the flag planted on Mars by Neil Armstrong in 1969. (Armstrong's 1969 mission, of course, was to the Moon, not Mars.)

In July 2010, Lee wrongly stated, from the floor of the House of Representatives, that North and South Vietnam had managed to forge a peaceful relationship with one another in the years since the Vietnam War. (In fact, South Vietnam ceased to exist on July 2, 1976, when North and South were merged to form the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.) Said Lee:

Quote:
"Today we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working. We may not agree with all that North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace. I would look for a better human rights record for North Vietnam, but they are living side by side."
Over the course of her political career, Lee has earned a reputation for having both an entitlement mentality and a volatile temper. In 1998, for example, she was accustomed to having an aide drive her daily, in a government-leased car, back and forth between her Capitol Hill apartment and her congressional office one block away. One day she told a staffer who had failed to reserve a limousine: “You don't understand. I am a queen, and I demand to be treated like a queen!”
But all you saw was a "D" behind her name, her black skin and you jumped to the conclusion that she was wonderful. This is a 100% pure race-baiting, union-owned, under-educated, entitlement-minded example of the worst that the Democratic Party has to offer.

Most of those I am in favor of. Her stance on the Patriot Act and surveillance is similar to Mike Crapo of Idaho a conservative. I think you are mistaken in your terms. A difference of opinion with someone does not mean that person is stupid, only that they disagree with your own viewpoints.

SJL sounds like a presidential nominee to me. I'm sure Salty, Mikey, and F666 will vote for her,

I would. What points in ff's post do you disagree with her voting record other than welfare?

Come on Salty, She think's there is a north and south Vietnam?

She thinks we planted a flag on Mars?

I hope that is not your definition of smart.

She would turn around and vote FOR all those things if Obama asked her to. she is obviously a shill.
