President Obama reached out to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) by telephone on the one-year anniversary of the Tucson shooting that severely wounded the Arizona congresswoman and left six people dead.

According to a White House statement, the president told the Arizona Democrat that "he and the First Lady keep her, the families of the fallen, and the whole Tucson community in their daily thoughts and prayers and, along with the entire nation, continue to join her in mourning those lost."

When she made her surprise visit to the House floor her right arm hung limply at her side and never moved at all. That she is still alive is remarkable and anything beyond that is a gift. I think the rats are portraying her ‘recovery’ as something that it is not.

More shameless campaigning from Barack the Kenyan. Since the Messiah reached out to her, I guess now we know that Giffords does not have a DUI.

I hope Barry at least had the decency to make the call from an indoor phone and didn’t give her the well wishes from the Golf Course......

It’s a “threefer” for them: It beats on Sarah Palin, gives them sympathy and beats the drum for gun-grabbing.

President Obama reached out to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords...

That should read "President Obama used Rep. Gabrielle Giffords..." Not all of AZ voted for the lady and those that did don't care that they have no representation other than her office help...the rest of us are and actually have been without representation. Everyone has prayed for her recovery and wish her well. Giffords should have at least publicly chastised Obama for suing her state over laws that ARE on the books and have been for years Giffords is not looking out for Arizona...she, Obama, and Holder do not want immigration law enforced.....Blue Dog Democrat? Not on your life.

Didn't B. Obama also call her family when she was wounded? What other victims has he called? Has he called the families of the border agents who have been killed?

I seem to recall seeing an interview somewhere when Hussein said that when he prays it is a ‘conversation with myself”. Seriously.

LA Marks Anniversary Of Tucson Tragedy At City Hall

by Ed Mertz KNX1070
January 8, 2012 1:09 PM

The bell at Los Angeles City Hall rang six times Sunday in memory of those killed in a deadly shooting rampage in Tucson, Ariz. last year.

The event was part of a nationwide commemoration of the one-year anniversary of a deadly shooting rampage that also left 13 wounded, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz.

Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild had asked mayors across the country to commemorate the tragedy.

“And someone spontaneously pulled out a gun and killed 6 people, injured 13 more. So it’s important to remember,” Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge said.

LaBonge filling in for Mayor Antonio Villairagosa struck the bell at 9:11 a.m. Sunday, which was 10:11 a.m. in Tucson — the time the shootings took place.

I feel for this woman and hope she grows stronger each day; but there were others murdered and not even mentioned. May they RIP.

“How does one communicate with a vegetable?”

I had FoxNews on this morning, she was covered standing at the shopping center of the assault.

She was talking with somebody, using at least one arm for gestures.

Hardly a vegetable.

You, on the other hand?

I read she can talk, with difficulty.

She’s unfit to continue in office. Though even with brain trauma she’s probably more with it then Bob Byrd was for the last 10 years of his tenure.
