Giffords stumps for former aide in rare public appearance

Tucson, Arizona (CNN) - Former Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords made a rare appearance before a cheering crowd of supporters at a "Get out the vote" concert in downtown Tucson.

Giffords was joined by her husband, Mark Kelly, at the Saturday event for a special election race for the seat from which she resigned.

    Everytime I see Gabby it reminds me of the crosshairs Palin put on her and then that fatal shot rang out.

    If a Dem did that and someone got shot, I wonder what Repubs would do.

    First of all the level of securuity imfoirmation for The U.S. Government goes thusly.From bottom to top, lowest is "Classified"..which might be an Army Field Manual for example. And the security at this level is totaly meaningless.Next in line would be "Restricted" ,very very light security here. Now we move up to "Confidential"which does have some level of security. The top two r "Secret" and "Top Secret". For example Atomic Bomb when U.S. only had them was "Top Secret". Then Vice President Truman did not know of it's exsistance.Now for the so called "Classified" security leaks. If there were indeed "Leaks" they would have been either "Secret" or perhaps "Top Secret". But the author of the Book...where the imformation was revealed... was assured by U.S. Intelligence that he was not revealing anything that those working on nuke project's in Iran did not already know. Soo this..children is yet another political "Red Herring".And like securiity of "Classified Imformation" is totaly meaningless!

    McCain need to remember that he has been in office during the years that cuased these hard times. And now is the first one to throw stones at the President. He wanted to invade Libya. He wanted to invade Iran.

    Now he states even if the President had no knowledge he is too blame ! WOW. I think the president shares responisbility . But come on...and he is the clown that made Sara famous....that what I blame him for...he gave Palin a career. Go away please, you have done enough !
