Sheila Jackson Lee: Is GOP Blocking Debt Ceiling Because Obama is Black?

While I have a great deal of respect for Lee, here the things she's saying are just absurd. The debt ceiling hasn't been blocked, only the threat of it has been made, and this has happened several times before. It is absolutely nothing new.

Obummer hasn't been more maligned than his predecessors, think Clinton! Carter! What he's endured is well within the well-established traditions of political abuse.

And let us not forget that no president has broken more promises than Obummer.

I suspect Lee is beating this drum in the hopes of getting Blacks to turn out for him in the same great numbers as last time. I hope so, because if she actually believes this garbage...
