Do you think this is irresponsible?

Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-OH) spoke at the Voice of America tea party this Labor Day weekend outside of Cincinnati, OH. Following a tense Q&A session — during which, the congresswoman was booed for acknowledging that the Constitution is a living document — Schmidt engaged in a heated conversation with a birther off-stage. At the conclusion of their exchange, Schmidt whispered to the birther, “I agree with you, but the courts don’t.”

  • It looked like to me she was trying to defuse this lady. And, she can agree with her if she wants too. Why is this wrong? I think it was more wrong for a congressman to tell his constituents that they wouldn't tell him how to run "his town hall or his congressional office". He forgets who put him in that office. She seemed to be giving this lady affirmation. It didn't hurt anyone or call anyone ugly names.

  • No, I don't think it's irresponsible. She is publicly announcing what the courts are saying, yet has her own opinion. What do you find irresponsible about it OP?

  • The fact that she is encouraging a woman who seem to be a little unstable that the POTUS is an illegal when the facts have proved that false

  • She she shouldn't be entitled to a personal opinion? Or is it just that she is an elected official that she should be barred from expressing her opinion in public? Just because you don't like what she has to say doesn't make her voice any less valid than yours.

  • Why is having her own opinion irresponsible? I must be missing something.

    Here in America, even a politician is allowed to voice an opinion which differs from her Party's official position.

    Watch out for people who start criticizing instances of "not toe-ing the Party line" ... that's totalitarianism .... that's the kind of thinking they have in a different "Party" .... the communist party.

    Every republican that doesn't "toe the party line" is called a RINO, is that a communist party?
