Watch As Gabrielle Giffords Steps Down From Congress

| Filed under: PolitikSad Sad

Prepare to shed a tear or two. It's a moving and bittersweet moment, so don't feel any shame about it.

It was a very emotional morning on the House floor today as Arizona Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords formally stepped down from her position. With her family watching on from the gallery, Gabrielle handed down her resignation and offered her parting words, assisted by her friend, Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Watch the video (above) to see and hear Gabby's farewell to the house.

P.S. - Before resigning, Giffords voted in favor of a bill which she introduced shortly before being shot last January. It passed unanimously, 408-0.

    She stepped down because she is not mentally competent to continue. Yet she voted on this?

    Thank God!

    Bitch needs to go away….she wouldn't have been shot if she was doing good in this world.

    The libs would have sneered at her if she were a wounded soilder or border patrol agent shot in the line of duty….and maybe even prosecuted her and put her in to jail and thrown away the key. The tears felt very forced on the part of Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Schultz said she did not prepare a speech because she knew she would only be able to hold her emotions together for a few seconds before she broke down…Then she launched into a rambling diatribe for the better part of 10 minutes. Vote them all out!

    I read earlier where someone wants the Sisters of Haddash, to shave Dabbie Wasserman Schultz's head, for being a traitor to Israel

    Just want to say, I second that motionm

    I recognize that her survival from a normally fatal wound was extraordinary. But this story was run into the ground a long time ago. I wish her well, but I never want to hear another word about her again. Unfortunately, the stupid media will probably report every visit she makes to the grocery store.

    I feel like she's pretty remarkable. I'm surprised no one here reading this recognizes that.

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a big mouthed, rude, liar. She needs to be voted out. I can't even believe that as low as the Democrats will stoop, that they would reach through the sludge and have that nasty bitch be their voice.

    Re: thebigboot – She also wasn't competent when Debbie slimeball "helped" her vote for Obama care.Re: thebigboot – Remember they dragged her out of her hospital bed and disconnected her IV to have their display for the media and she voted for Obama care. The dems have no limits as to how low they will stoop.

    ^ Mostly unsightly comments. What is refreshing with her situation is that no matter the party affiliation, everyone recognizes that she took the shot for playing the game. Hardcore philosophical disagreements are usurped by PARTICIPATION.
