America’s Next Top Idiot: Congresswoman says, “Today we have two Vietnams, side by side”

by editor on July 19, 2010

Sheila Jackson Lee has said some stupid things during her time in Congress, but she topped herself on Thursday when she said, “Today we have two Vietnams side-by-side.”

Lee was apparently preoccupied back in the 70s and didn’t hear the news that there is no more “North Vietnam” and no more “South Vietnam.”

And just wait until she hears about East Germany and West Germany.

Here’s her official response, just as I thought: you guys didn’t let her finish, dammit! She only had five minutes! You got it all wrong! http://jacksonlee.house.gov/News/DocumentSingle.aspx?DocumentID=198784

Someone told her that she messed up and they brought up wikipedia and she, then instead of asserting she didn’t know what she was talking about, just came up with a more complicated statement. She is now trying to say that she just wanted to say that we should get out sooner to avoid this being another Vietnam. If she really wanted to say that she would have as it is not a complicated thing to say at all and Dems have been saying that for years. It seems then that she was thinking of Vietnam and then got confused with NK and SK (I am thinking). Then she is still confused because NK and SK aren’t exactly bosom buddies. She is in short a moron.

Liberal policy is EXACTLY why we failed in Vietnam. We were never allowed to win….and we cut and ran, which is what these liberal morons want now. It is why the same successful tactics are being used against us in Iraq and Afghanistan, because they know liberals are weak. They know we cannot take the reality of war…so they use those very same tactics used by the NVA. And when we run away again, due to the same irresponsible liberal policy, the same thing will happen that happened in Vietnam and the terrorists will take over. It is a waiting game for them.

History tells us this…and that the last democrat with any balls at all was JFK….though in reality, there are no democrats anymore. And I guarantee he would be appalled at the state of affairs in the US today.

I almost hate to say this, but she MIGHT be talking about Iraq and Afghanistan, both seemingly unending like Vietnam.

Hey, sometimes they have to get something right – law of averages etc.

That is how I took it. Standard dem play book, any military action = Nam.

Seemingly unending because of liberal/odumbocrat control in the white house. If we had been able to do the job correctly, we could have been in and out in less than 3 years, along with standing up the SV Army…

We could do the same in both Iraq and Afghanistan, IF we could do the job right. But the whiney little girls of the liberal left would whine and cry…..

Silly me, didn’t hear the video right. ( wipes egg of face ) Yep, idiot-speak was occuring. Although maybe she still uses a 60’s map, can’t afford a new one, being disadvantaged and discriminated against and all?

Is she thinking of North Korea and South Korea? But then again the entirety of her speech is nonsense even if she was talking about the Koreas. Working side by side? What Planet does she live in?

I think the operative word here is “thinking” and to date she has not demonstrated that she is capable of this.

This statement is no way the statement of a person that knows history at all… nor even geography for that matter. It seems to be two subjects that Democrats fail miserably.

Kimmy, history and economics…..further, anything based in reality.

Yes anything that has to do with truths, common sense and practicality seems to escape the mental abilities of the liberal progressives. They prefer to live in the theoretical and push to make the theoretical a reality until they find out that is unsustainable. They are so weird.

I think she was confusing Vietnam with Korea. She probably doesn’t know there’s a difference because she’s racist — Asians all look alike to her.

41 years ago, Mary Jo Kopechne of PA died at the hands of Edward Moore Kennedy, a senator from MA and the scion of the Kennedy family. It’s really quite amazing that he continued to be elected Senator for 40 more years

If this administration really wants to change America, they should mandate that all members of congress must pass a fifth grade proficiency tests in math, science, English/spelling, US History and geography.

That’s a great idea….though it would never pass this current congress, as my bet would be that 90% of them would fail it, and even at a 3rd grade level. Liberals never have done well with history, so that’s a given…but, unfortuntately, that would likely include the Republican Party at this point in time.

Another moron, voted for by morons….what do you expect?

Intellectual elite? Really? Like that other moron, john “know nothing” kerry….self-professed intellectuals should keep their mouths shut….everytime they open their mouths, they prove themselves anything but. This moron, proves the adage…..

Another liberal, completely asleep at the wheel…but I am quite sure, somehow, its gotta be George Bush’s fault….

It amazes me that the “Intellectual Elite” of this country doesn’t know that there is only one Vietnam or that Arizona borders on Mexico. I wonder if they know where their congressional districts are. How do they find their way home at night?

I’m voting for the first candidate that stands up and says, “I don’t know shit but I’m willing to learn.”

What a friggin’ moron. Ask any Vietnam vet about achieving “victory” and they’ll tell you that if Congress hadn’t micromanaged the war, complete with stupid “rules of engagement” we’d easily have won in half the time. But war is messy and politicians like clean hands.

Sheila Jackson is not only stupid, she is a racist. Oh yes, she is very ugly too.

Gerrymandering – helping the ignorant get elected for ages.
