The following is a response to the article referenced in my previous post GOP Rep. “Rohrabacher’s face turned red, she said, adding that he said he represents citizens and hates illegals.”

Again, allow me to refresh your memory about who exactly California’s Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is: 

Anderson Cooper Whumps Rep Rohrabacher On Benghazi “What You’re Saying Is Factually Not Correct”   

GOP Congressmen: Iraq War a “horrible mistake…Everybody” thinks so.  Surprise! It turns out it was just a big ol’ GOP oopsie! (Maybe he should watch this VIDEO– Hubris: Selling the Iraq War. BushCo saw an opportunity and took it, and took us.)

And just for giggles: Dana Rohrabacher surfin’ and singin’. Not kidding.

And with that, here is today's L.A. Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter:

Re "Pathway to citizenship likely to be rocky in D.C.," Feb. 19

Just because Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) — who said, "Just because you are a wonderful person doesn't mean you deserve to be an American citizen" — had the luck to be born here should not give him the right to deny citizenship to a person who has lived here for most of her life, is in college and will in all likelihood become a productive member of her community, paying taxes and contributing to the well-being of those around her.

I wasn't born here; I came from Nazi Germany in 1936 and was blessed with citizenship papers at age 20. I shudder to think what might have happened to me had Rohrabacher been in charge of granting or denying me citizenship

Dana rohrabacher

Allow me to refresh your memory about who exactly California's Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is: 

Anderson Cooper Whumps Rep Rohrabacher On Benghazi “What You’re Saying Is Factually Not Correct”   

GOP Congressmen: Iraq War a "horrible mistake…Everybody" thinks so.  Surprise! It turns out it was just a big ol’ GOP oopsie! (Maybe he should watch this VIDEO– Hubris: Selling the Iraq War. BushCo saw an opportunity and took it, and took us.)

And just for giggles: Dana Rohrabacher surfin’ and singin’. Not kidding.

But you know what isn't funny? Rohrabacher's long record of voting against measures like a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants.. His disgusting attitude literally brought one in particular, a teenage girl who was raised here but born in Mexico, to tears.

L.A. Times:

When Jessica Bravo came here this month to talk to her congressman, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach), about expanding rights for illegal immigrants, their meeting ended in a shouting match and tears.

Bravo, an 18-year-old community college student at Golden West College in Huntington Beach, was smuggled over the border from Mexico by her parents when she was 3. She recently joined hundreds of other young illegal immigrants in a campaign to confront members of Congress and ask them to vote for a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants. [...]

In the scheduled meeting with Rohrabacher, Bravo said the congressman stiffened when she said she and her parents came to the U.S. unlawfully. Five minutes into the meeting, Rohrabacher's face turned red, she said, adding that he said he represents citizens and hates illegals.

Of course, Rohrabacher denies that ever happened, saying the meeting turned nasty when "a community organizer with Bravo implied he was racist."

Maybe it was Rohrabacher himself who implied he was racist. Just a thought.

But see, a community organizer was present. In his narrow mind that explains everything. Next thing you know, he'll accuse the now-defunct ACORN of setting him up to look like an intolerant, bigoted, xenophobic villain, forging Jessica Bravo's name on eleventy-two voting registration form, and throwing the meeting.

They obviously do not listen to the idiocy that comes out of their mouths. Rohrabacher is a HUGE penis. Via.

Gack. The Twitter was alit last night over this "Kennedy" woman, and now I understand. The winner of this panel was def Bashir. Since the vid comes from the MRC, they cut it off at "Kennedy"'s supposed "win". If you see the full segment on vid, let me know.

CA GOP Rep. Dana Rohrabacher's Wife Took 50% of Congressional Campaign Contributions

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Those wacky Republicans, they just can't seem to stay out of trouble. Via the OC Weekly:

Costa Mesa Congressman Dana Rohrabacher gave his wife more than 50 percent of the campaign contributions he raised mostly from corporate sources during July, August and September, according to recently filed records at the Federal Election Commission (FEC) in Washington.

Guess how much Rhonda Rohrabacher has managed to get from the hubby in since '06? More than a quarter of a million dollars.

And guess where the money came from? Hint: It's in the opening paragraph. That's right, corporations!  "Corporate entities--especially defense and space-exploration companies--that financially benefit from Rohrabacher's D.C. maneuverings."

D'oh!

And while we all occupied poverty, guess what Rhonda got? 40 percent in raises.

P.S. Rep. Anti-Government (Schmuck-CA) is running for his 25th and 26th years in, yes, government.

VIDEO- GOP Congressmen: Iraq War a "horrible mistake...Everybody" thinks so.

You know that little bloodbath in Iraq we've been in for the past 8 years or so? The one that so many of us knew was wrong before it even began? The one the GOP fought tooth and nail for? The one that was a result of unrelenting fear-mongering? The one that made you a traitor to your country and a terrorist if you dared to breathe a word against it? The one that resulted in torture and maiming and 4,385 American deaths?

Yeah, that one.

Surprise! It turns out it was just a big ol' Rushpublic oopsie!

Too little too late doesn't even begin to say it:


In a panel at the Cato Institute on conservatism and war, U.S. Reps. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) and John Duncan (R-Tenn.) revealed that the vast majority of GOP members of Congress now think it was wrong for the U.S. to invade Iraq in 2003.

Isn't hindsight special? Then again, Rushpublics have always been a little backwards:

ROHRABACHER: [...] All I can say is the people, everybody I know thinks it was a mistake to go in now. [...]

NORQUIST: Of Republicans in Congress, who would agree with the general analysis here that it was a mistake and/or we should go in.

MCCLINTOCK: I think everyone would agree Iraq was a mistake.

NORQUIST: Two hundred percents. Ok, we’re going to average these.

MCCLINTOCK: And, you know, again, I think virtually everyone would agree going into Afghanistan the way we did was a mistake.

After Rohrbacher said everybody he knows thought it was a mistake, he got laughter.

Laughter.

I didn't realize 1000s of unnecessary deaths as a result of a fraudulent war was funny.
