    Maxine Water (D) Congresswoman out of California. She's definately opinionated. I guess her mamma loved her. What do you have to say about her?

    I agree with lady_love;
      Maxine Waters is a hater.

    I remember a time when it was NOT okay for elected and appointed Officials to publicly insult average American citizens.  Wow that seems so long ago.  Yet...it's only been a couple years....

      This isn't a partisan group, and in fact, they're described as "left leaning." Even so, Maxine made thier list of the "Most Corrupt." They have more Rs listed for corruption than they do Ds:

      As for Waters' hate speech, I don't think calling senators she opposes "Neanderthals" and telling elected representatives to "Go to hell" aren't exactly nice.

      The fact that you hadn't heard of it is testimony to the effectivness of the main stream media to protect liberal lawmakers from bad press. Just look what Rangle got away with, and Frank!

    Don't really know what she said, but I will tell ya, most Americans are WEAK. We sit around and talk about what's wrong, how our liberties are being stripped from us, but we DO NOTHING!  We are great at talking, hell we have been raised to blah blah blah, highschools are full of Blah Blah Blah. But we are supposed to go from BLAH to RAH and stand the hell up. Again, no idea what Maxine has said, but if you all hate her, chances are she's doing something right! I'd prefer to be hated and stick to my beliefs than be loved for following the herd. Just saying... (Okay, commence hatred directed at me! wink

    Her constituents are suffering...  African American unemployment is almost 20%... Hispanic unemployment is also far higher than Whites...

    There is a lot to be upset about...

    She voted against the Iraq invasion....and I support her views regarding American policy/intervention towards Haiti...

    While she has been criticized by some for corruption...our political system is based on it... Dick Cheney made millions off the Iraq War...

      Can Ms. Waters help the fact that her district happens to be in CALIFORNIA???
      Yes, unemployment is unconscionably high.
      Yes, it's higher among African Americans and Hispanics.

      Unemployment is also ridiculously high here in Sacramento, but I don't blame Congresswoman Doris Matsui for that fact!!

      Perhaps some of the surrounding Republican-represente districts like Orange County could provide some ideas on how to put people to/back to work in South LA. Notice I didn't suggest they could provide actual JOBS or FUNDING FOR JOBS because that would be ... never mind.

      Totally agree with you MikeLong on corruption. And Cheney makes no apologies for himself, either.

    "North Dakota has had the nation's lowest unemployment ever since the economy tanked. What's its secret?" "If its secret isn’t oil, what is so unique about the state? North Dakota has one thing that no other state has: its own state-owned bank."

    Waters is the Michelle Bachmann of the Democratic party.  I hear they buy their foil hats from the same store.

    "In the very end, civilizations perish because they listen to their politicians and not to their poets."

    We do not need more puppets on the strings of a few wealthy people... we need more people with depth and character.

    As I said in my Hub Middle Class To Zero - We need to stop making such a huge deal about manufacturing "things" and we have to start making a big deal about building character.

    That's rich, coming from people who disrespect the president on a daily basis.

    Who say other Americans hate their country.
    Who say their president hates his country.

    I say the same as Maxine: Anyone who spouts this slander CAN go to hell!

            Now that's interesting.
            YOU get to say what you want, because you are a mere plebe.
            But SHE is cuffed, because of the position she holds?

            Doesn't sound very American to me.

                I doubt she gets any votes or support from Tea-Partiers. In fact, I'll bet they have a few choice words for her.
                She is directing her words to that specific group....just like your Palins and Bachmanns say that our president wants to destroy America and pals around with terrorists....you take them to task? Where is their responsability?

                For that matter, where is Russsshhhhhh and Glenny-Boys responsability? They use PUBLIC airwaves to spout one-sided hate.


                And it's also a cop-out.
                Everyone is held to account for their words, not just leaders!

                    As is Bachmann and Boehner and the rest of them.

                    When that creep called Obama a Liar, he was speaking for all of us? He wasn't speaking for me!

                    None of the Tea Partyers or Republicans speak for me....why should Waters have to speak for the Tea Party?
