Skip to comments.Former Rep. Gabby Giffords could flip Arizona for Obama in presidential race

President Obama is eyeing Arizona as one of the few Republican states he might flip in November, but to do that he might need the help of its brightest star: former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D).
Whether Giffords will lend her considerable clout to the presidents reelection campaign remains an open and exceedingly delicate question.

Using her in that way is the exact opposite of that elderly guy who took a bullet and died for her. Obama is sick, and if voters fall for such patronizing, they are idiots.
He doesn’t need Giffords for Arizona, he just needs Holder to cover up illegal alien voter fraud which is being “organized” as we speak.
Never let a crisis go to waste. It’s the Demonrat way!
My thoughts exactly. Anyone who says, “I’m going to vote for the Marxist because our Rep got shot by a psychotic leftist” is too stupid to breathe.
so lets see; Arizona is being eviscerated by crime, kidnappings, drugs, etc due to illegal immigrants- yet the clout of Giffords will help the POS in the WH who continues to obstruct when the governor of the state tries to eradicate the situation??? LOL- another lame attempt at the criminal liberal media to help obama get re-elected...
Does the man have no shame at all? She resigned her seat rather than risk her recovery by the rigors of a campaign, and this putz wants to pressure her to do it anyway - for him???
Gabby will have to register a lot of illegal aliens before Arizona goes for the Kenyan. I live here and can’t find anyone who has the Barry Tingle anymore. Gas is $3.50 and going up more every day. Arizonans need their vehicles to go anywhere in this state.
I got shot! Vote for my party when you otherwise wouldn’t!
Look, we all feel for Giffords and wish her the best, medically speaking. But to seek to exploit voters’ natural sympathy for her victimization, for political gain, is sick beyond words.
Maybe they could team her up with James Brady?
Seriously, they need to leave her alone. One of my siblings ran in to her recently and spoke to Giffords. Giffords is a sweet lady who needs to work on getting as much of herself back as she can...

Which advertising agency wrote that review?
McCain won AZ by 8.5%. How is a crime victim going to flip the election for Obama when voters have seen just how unprepared Obama is for the job? If Obama has a chance in AZ, it’s time to give up on this election and on America as the hope of the free world.
If all she can do is drool her endorsement Øbama will have her front and center of his campaign.
Obama is sick, and if voters fall for such patronizing, they are idiots.
Are these the same people that voted in McCain again?
I regularly wonder if this country is soft-headed enough to re-elect Obama, and I confess I’m not confident about the answer.
The Tucson leftist DemLibTurds would go for it.
We need four more years of Obama like Giffords needs another hole in her head. Did I just type that?
“Whether Giffords will lend her considerable clout to the presidents reelection campaign remains an open....”
I’m sure glad to see her healthy and vibrant, but since when was she the king maker in AZ? Honestly I hadn’t heard much about her before the shooting......just awful
