Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, used revercism when she suggested during a House floor speech Friday that raising the debt ceiling was being held up by members of Congress because President Obama is black.
"Only this president--only this one--only this one has received the kind of attacks and disagreements and inability to work," she said. "Only this one. Read between the lines."
"What is different about this president that should put him in a position that he should not receive the same kind of respectful treatment of when it is necessary to raise the debt limit in order to pay our bills?" she added.
