“A half-truth is the most cowardly of lies.”
Forget the civility for a moment, look at it from both sides, and ask yourself is Debbie vile, cowardly and un-ladylike?
Debbie Wasserman Schultz rebuked West on the House floor for supporting a bill that would cut Medicare and other spending. “The gentleman from Florida, who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries — unbelievable from a member from South Florida,” said Wasserman Schultz, a Democrat.
Allen West responded with an e-mail to her and House leaders: “Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige.You are the most vile, unprofessional and despicable member of the U.S. House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!” West added her behavior “dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign headquarters, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.” Debbie has been attacking West for over a year now and in this quote, West was referring to a demonstration by Wasserman Schultz and others outside his (West’s) campaign headquarters, accused West of insensitivity when he wrote a column in a biker magazine that included pictures and articles that they claim were disrespectful of women.
Debbie is the one who said the GOP was trying to kill seniors and women. and she blamed the tea party for Gabby Giffords shooting. And the list goes on.
Personally, I wish she would shut the heck up.
