Is this how the Democrats honor Gabrielle Giffords return to D.C.?

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) made a dramatic return to Washington Monday evening to cast her vote in favor of the deal to raise the debt ceiling. God Bless her!  What a remarkable blessed recovery.
This was really exhilarating to see her, and see her smile. Everyone must celebrate that, and thank God for that.

Remember after the evil shooting of her and the murder of innocents [including a little girl] in Arizona, president Obama went to Tuscon to give a campaign, oops, I mean a Memorial speech.  Many, if not all pundits called it brilliant, trying to bring the country together. He called for civility.
In the honor of all kids that were wondering what happened, and to honor  Gabrielle Giffords, we must use civil discourse.

I was one of the few bloggers who was skeptical of his sincerity.  I was skeptical because of all of the left's uncivil discourse in the past.  

So, with Giffords return to Washington D.C., and heeding president Obama's words of civility to honor Giffords, let's see how the left has honored her.

First you had in a closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) say  [about GOP tea party supported members] that "We have negotiated with terrorists. This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money."

Then you have the Vice President....I said the Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden accuse members of the Tea Party of having "acted like terrorists,"  This was noted in

Then you have the former Speaker of the House, I said Speaker of the House say this to ABC's Diane Sawyer: Pelosi told told ABC’s Diane Sawyer the deal [grand compromise] is probably a “Satan sandwich with Satan fries on the side,”

Here we have O'Reilly showing the MSM liberals [Dems] showing their usual civil discourse that the president asked for.

I guess this is the liberal Democrats way of saying: "WELCOME BACK GABRIELLE". 

Oh, oh, I just thought of something.  Rep Giffords came back and supported Boehner and the majority of  Republicans in congress in eating this "devil's sandwich".   I wonder what that makes her?
UpdateAfter Rep. Giffords made her courageous trek to Washington, D.C. to cast her vote, she has returned to my great city of Houston, TX.    Remember when  senator Chuck Schumer, NY-D., said  "Fuggetaboutit" to Houston getting the retired space shuttle, because there was nothing in Houston to attract tourists.  Well, I guess Gabrielle Giffords knows that Houston has the #1 medical center and doctors in the world. She finds Houston a pretty good attraction!   So, Chuckie boy, you can welcome the shuttle, while we welcome Gabrielle Giffords.  I'll take that trade any day of the week.
Update 2:  Hat tip: Great tribble friend Joel @Joelmt on twitter
This from USA Today online:
Count Vice President Biden among those excited to see Rep. Gabrielle Giffords at the U.S. Capitol yesterday.
Biden, who got advance notice from Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi that Giffords would show up, said the Arizona Democrat called him "Joe" when she saw him.
"I said, 'Now we're both members of the Cracked Head Club,' " Biden is quoted as saying in The Boston Globe.

Hey Joe, keep your day job. That is not funny and I won't even attempt a joke about that. That is sick.

Hugh Hewitt recounted a report that Biden had welcomed Giffords to the "Cracked Skull Club." It's this smarmy familiarity of his that reminds me of a sloppy drunk and makes his frequent gaffes so irritating.

But how can one be too judging toward someone who admits that his skull is cracked? Roll your eyes and move on, I guess.

Yep, that's all you can do. The double standard of liberals is mind boggling. If George W Bush or anyone on the right made any of the gaffes Biden has made we would never hear the end of it.

Thanks for your comment AST.

Only one comment, Michael: Slow Joe Biden may be the most uncouth leader in the Democrat Party today! He is so pathetic, such a chronic "foot-in-mouth" jerk without shame, it beggars imagination!!

Thanks for that comment Balladeer!
