I'm sure the same thing would have happened to a republican congressman.

If you read all of my comments, however, you'll see that I don't place the blame solely on some political motive or any one thing, for that matter. What I said was that we don't know, and may never know, what caused Loughner to actually do this.

That said, I have to wonder why Loughner didn't carry out these heinous acts of violence on the faculty at the community college that gave him the boot for misconduct or the Army recruiter that denied him on the basis of drug use. One would think he had a more personal grievance with both of those institutions. His past contact with Giffords, as well as the letter that was found at his home, seem to indicate some political motive or extreme views. That's all I'm saying.

But to cut to the chase, do I think Sarah Palin's crosshairs made him do this? Naw, but still Sarah Palin is a major part of the backdrop of American politics and conservative culture. She is a universal and recognizable figure by any measure and has a huge and loyal following. So while Loughner may not have taken any direct cues from Palin or her website, her extreme and hateful rhetoric may have turned up the temperature quite a bit.

Now allow me to put on my partisan hat for just a second, Republicans are very adept at giving the masses pitchforks and torches and slowly backing away once the shit hits the fan. I just feel the overheated and toxic political climate may have tipped an already mentally unstable person over the edge.
This post hits a 10 on the stupid scale. I guess you just ignore the hate on the left. Thats ok because the left is waisting their time on Palin and now we know Newt is going to run for pres and will kick Obama's little ass out of office, One and done.

I just don't see why we had to spend all that money and make such a big deal to move her from one place to the other. Police escort, private jet, and then a helicopter.

True, but like I said, the same thing would have happened to a republican congressman. Each side of the aisle makes its share of things like this, which is why I find it silly when someone from the left or the right "points this out".

Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot in Arizona

Giffords condition upgraded to good and was officially moved into the rehab facility moments ago. Appearantly she Tweeted during last night's SOTU and watched TV the previous day. Sounds like she's improving.

Sorry, but the lady took a bullet while doing her job meeting with her constituents. She also became a solid target for any other person wanting notoriety or taking on a cause. I am not a defender of gov't spending by any account, but this should and would be absolutely consider reasonable expenses.

If this was a republican congressman I doubt we would hear a peep out of first.
