Well, at least they’re not naming one after her lying husband.

I see Mabus got his orders from the White House.

Mabus said the notion occurred to him that this would be a “fitting tribute” not only to Giffords but to Navy families because she was a Navy spouse.

Rare as hen's teeth those Navy spouses!

A gun grabber and anti-weapon activist gets a gun ship named after her.

Courage?

It’s an awful thing to be shot and it takes a lot of strength to make it through the recovery, but exceptional courage?

We have literally thousands upon thousands of sailors who’ve undergone catastrophic injuries and illnesses that took years of therapy to recover that were worse than what Giffords had to deal with.

We used to name our ships in memory of great warriors... now we name them after whoever is popular in Washington.

Mabus sounds like a doofus. IMHO, there is nothing courageous about getting shot in the head by a commie lib lunatic.

If anything the ship should be named for Chris Kyle.

Actually, the newest ship will be the USS Whitney Houston.

It’s a new prototype vessel: the Self-Destroyer.

Just proves that all one has to do to have a Navy ship named in their honor is, be a liberal, serve five years in US Congress, and survive a mass shooting.

What nonsense!

Mrs. Giffords now chooses to support the seizure of our firearms, why would our Navy name an armed ship after her?

How about a hospital or a gym or a theater? That's more in keeping with her, ahem, sensibilities.

The Marxists/progressives/Democrats seem to love naming Naval assets after themselves. I do not understand why, it seems to be a "lose-lose".

This new vessel will join the USS Obama, furthering the new navy's goal of being a "Global Force for Good." This is not to be confused with the goal of the OLD navy, whose goal was to kill the enemy and break enough of his shit to make him want to quit the fight.

Photobucket

Armed with a single MA-2 .50 caliber Browning, this much feared naval vessel carries up to 30 rounds of aluminum piercing ammunition. It is the first in an entirely new naval architecture class -- technically, “clitoral” (not to be confused with “littoral”) -- being pushed on the Pentagon by the defense minded wussies in the Obama Administration as a cost-saving measure. If you look closely, you can see the heavy-duty seat restraint which prevents the pilot/gunner – Kamakazi Kowalski – from leaping from the vessel prior to engaging the enemy. The 12 V trolling motor – which lacks a reverse function -- propels this sophisticated craft forward at a top speed of 4 knots. Reverse travel – at approximately 35 knots -- is achieved by firing the Browning.

The no-bid contract to build 200 of these fearsome warships was to have been awarded to Obama-Soros-Emanuel Shipbuilding and Stormdoor Manufacturing (formerly General Dynamics) and will be administered by trusted Obama associate and former Chief-of-Staff Rahm Emanuel who commented that, at $12 million each, they are a bargain. They will be constructed exclusively at the company’s facility in Kenya with major subcomponent production (rivets and miscellaneous fasteners) at the company’s Harlem and Skokie plants. Delivery is expected to begin in 2024 (or as soon as the subcontractors’ funds are safely in the contractor's Swiss account).

This is just as innapropriate and patently offensive as the USS Trayvon Martin, or USS Homosexual Marriage. I don’t even recognise this country anymore. As Taylor said in planet of the apes, it’s a madhouse... a madhouse.

Well....we send our queers and women to fight now...ships should be named sensitively as well.

How about some fighting heroes and names of warrior renown....nah, too old, male, angry and white.

It started to go to hell when they named a carrier for Carter whose only combat was with an aggressive aquatic rabbit and its been downhill ever since.

My father and and two uncles served on ships with names like Midway, Iowa, and Duncan.....now my sons will serve on the Gabby...oh wait...they won’t join a navy like this....and that guys is the plan. As well as Mabus boot-licking Obama and the libs wanting to memorialize another brain impaired gun victim prop before they plant old Jim Brady.

Ray Mabus is making quite a name for himself.

First the USS John P. Murtha and now the USS Gabrielle Giffords.

Ray baby needs to go, and soon.
