Gabrielle Giffords May Never Return To Congress

Giffords Return Up In The Air

So sad.

Despite the amazing recovery road Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has been traveling, she is still having trouble forming words, sentences and thoughts. She's been using hand gestures and facial expressions to the best of her ability to fill the gaps.

We say after being shot in the head, perhaps we should be giving her a little bit more time before we start discussing whether or not she'll be back. Apparently there is an actual timeframe to decide, and it's by May of next year, so let's wait a bit before we jump to conclusions.

While we understand that her position needs to be filled past a temporary status, we still have tons of hope for her and the amount of recovery she'll be able to accomplish!

Our thoughts are with her!

    no shit, what a revelation. She has to learn to talk and walk again, probably leaves little time for D.C.

    I feared this would happen. This is all thanks to the Republican's "2nd Amendment Remedy"

    Survival and functionality take precedent over policy and politics. She is very fortunate to be alive. Hopefully her experience can lead to better mental health policies in the name of the children and others who were not so fortunate on that day in AZ. Sometimes a public individual having this occur to them personally can shed light on issues and make change where previous lawmaking and policy fail.

    Was there ever any discussion she could become what she had been before being shot in the head? No, realistically, while everyone wishes the best for Rep. Giffords and her future full recovery, loss of brain matter is just that. Bless her for her courage.

    Are you kidding me Boston61? What do you mean you "feared this would happen" - The people in Tucson whose district she is supposed to be representing is getting NO representation. How long are we supposed to wait? Or should we just sit around feeling sorry for her because she got shot, forever! The people of this district need representing and she obviously cannot do it - she's incapable - no fault of her own - but still, incapable. It's time to get someone in there that can do the job. And blaming the Republicans? Really? Wow!!!! You're an ignorant fool.
