Maxine Waters continues to suck at politics

Rep.ulsive Maxine Waters (Duh-Calif.) attacked Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson on Saturday, in an angry, hypocritical speech. The woman who lives in the most luxurious part of LA said that Dr. Carson "doesn't care about people in public housing."

She doesn't even live near anyone in public housing.

"[Carson] knows nothing about the mission of HUD," the woman who was called "one of the most corrupt members of Congress" said of him. 

"He doesn't care about people in public housing. He believes that if you are poor, it is your own fault. And he doesn't know the difference between an immigrant and a slave."

Ms. Waters added that she is also available for Tarot card readings and has several crystal balls.

The statement Waters was referring to was a remark Carson made in March at a HUD employees event when speaking about America.

"That's what America is about. A land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less," Carson said.

In May he said that poverty was "a state of mind." 

He said in an interview on Sirius SM radio: "You take somebody that has the right mindset, you take everything from them and put them on the street and I guarantee in a little while they'll be right back up there. And you take somebody with the wrong mindset, you can give them everything in the world, they'll work their way right back down to the bottom."

Sadly, Carson told the truth about recidivism with poverty and this is what really upsets Waters. 

She warned Carson that she'd be tough on him when he testifies before the House Committee on Financial Services, on which she is the ranking member.

Fortunately for Dr. Carson, Maxine Waters isn't bright enough to intellectually destroy a golden retriever, much less one of the most prominent pediatric neurosurgeons in the United States. 

He is also not the type of person to wage a personal attack when he's attacked, so Waters will believe she outdid him, when, in fact, she will look foolish and small.
