Congressman Alan Grayson (D-FL) has once again demonstrated that partisan name-calling is still in vogue in Speaker Pelosi’s House of Representatives. According to Mr. Grayson, Republicans want us to “Die Quickly.”
Is this guy as much a jackass as he appears to be? How much are we paying this guy to give empty speeches that accomplish nothing and persuade no one?
I’m sure we can all agree that Mr. Grayson has enjoyed a prestigious education. From Wikipedia: Grayson was graduated from Bronx High School of Science, Harvard College, Harvard Law School, and holds a Master of Public Policy from Harvard’s JFK School of Government. He should be commended for those many years of effort and accomplishment in school. But how do we resolve the difference between his education and his rhetoric? It’s only his first term in Congress – how and where has he gone afoul already? Too many years as a practicing attorney, perhaps? Too beholden, too quickly, to House Leadership?
Also from Wikipedia, and Roll Call, Grayson was ranked as the 12th wealthiest member of Congress based on financial disclosure forms with a minimum net worth of $31.12 million. Money he has, grace he lacks. When called upon to apologize for his lack of decorum and civility on the floor of the USHOR, Grayson quipped, “I apologize to the dead and their families that we haven’t voted sooner to end this holocaust in America.”
Mr. Grayson has clearly, and in less than one year in office, become a partisan.
Contact Mr. Grayson, and let him know what you think of his rhetoric, and how you plan to vote in the next election in Florida’s 8th District.
