My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Congresswoman Giffords for her speedy recovery. The cowardly act of attacking an unarmed Congresswoman who was spending her Saturday meeting with constituents is all the more outrageous because she was by any reasonable measure not a partisan. What is even more ironic is that Giffords is a fiscal conservative, strong advocate for gun rights, and clean energy promoter.
The level of partisanship in this country is becoming more irrational than ever. Moderate Democrats like Congresswoman Giffords are the type of people we need for this country to solve its fiscal crisis. Let’s hope she comes out of this experience stronger and more resolved than ever.
