WASHINGTON (AP) - Rep. Gabrielle Giffords returned to the House for the first time since she was shot last January, making a dramatic entrance Monday night during a crucial debt vote and drawing loud applause and cheers from surprised colleagues. As lawmakers stood on the floor, staring up at the vote board, Giffords slowly made her way through an entrance on the Democratic side of the chamber. Applause built and rolled like a wave through the House as lawmakers realized that their colleague had returned.

Now, Arizona, vote her out and get a conservative in!
Aye - Aye!
Here, here, and well said. I admire the guts this lady displays.
It’s hard to know how she would have voted before the shooting.
If any good came from her suffering it’s that the RATs have turned down the heat on their rhetoric...
I’m glad she’s alive and well.
I’m sorry guys. I’m glad she’s doing great and wish her the best, but all I see from this is the same ol’ Democratic ‘Drama Llama’ crapola. She’s just being used as a prop. Quite frankly, I find it disgusting.
I am glad she is well and alive.. but I wonder if she flew in from Arizonia or Texas where ever she was at on a private jet? those are evil... u know..
Yeah, and Joe Biden calls the Tea Party a bunch of terrorist. It was nice while it lasted but it only lasted a day or so back when the shooting happened.
Except for Biden
(I didn’t think I needed the “sarc tag”).
The first time I heard of her was not when she was shot, but when she made a grandstand play on the floor of the congress in support of her MoveOn.org friends and allies. It was during their slandering and derision of General David Patreus when he was brought here from Afghanistan to testify before congress. Giffords used her opportunity (and intellect) to demand from him an explanation of what he was doing as commanding general to reduce the carbon foot print of our fighting forces in the middle east.
I hope her retirement is eminent.
IMO Obama and the democrats made out better than they should have on this and in an effort to distract over how much we're really getting screwed here, they brought her out. I know I'm cynical but it was the thought that ran through my head as soon as I saw the image of her waving while surrounded by the usual suspects.
I agree. And if she voted the "wrong" way the dems would have come out claiming she's "incompetent"
Believe me. They knew how she was going to vote before she came in.
I remember that; like I said, vote her out, she is an extreme socialist/greenie!
Yep. They were saying “Do it for Teddy” during the HC circus. Blech.
Tucson has seen most of the Arizona Stimulus funding spent there to buy votes
This vote won't help her re election and they are running out of funds for vote buying.
I wish her the best for her recovery and hope she does well for the rest of her term
