Republicans Denounce Pelosi for Warning Against 'Incitement'

By Paul Kane
The House Republicans' top campaign chief strongly denounced Speaker Nancy Pelosi's comments that appeared to question whether today's angry conservative protests were similar to anti-gay rallies in the late 1970s that preceded the assassination of two San Francisco political leaders.

Rep. Pete Sessions (Texas), chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, said Pelosi crossed the line when she related the rhetoric of anti-gay protesters in San Francisco in 1978 -- the year Harvey Milk, the first openly gay member of the city's board of supervisors, and his political ally, Mayor George Moscone, were killed by former supervisor Dan White -- to that of contemporary conservatives while answering a question about the protests against President Obama's health-care proposals.

"The Speaker is now likening genuine opposition to assassination. Such insulting rhetoric not only undermines the credibility of her office, but it underscores the desperate attempt by her party to divert attention away from a failing agenda," Sessions said in a statement. "During one of the most important policy debates of our time, the American people have been completely abandoned by those elected representatives under her control. Voters are justifiably frustrated with Washington, and the Speaker's verbal assault on voters accomplishes nothing other than furthering her reputation for being wildly out of touch with the American people."

Unsure of who's right in this debate? Decide for yourself. Here is the full question and answer at Pelosi's weekly press briefing, held every Thursday morning:

Q: Madam Speaker, in terms of the political tone, the tone of the debate, Hoyer said earlier this week he thought it was the most vitriolic since '93-'94. And around that time we also saw acts of domestic violence, domestic terrorism. How concerned are you about the tone of the political debate, in terms of people talking about anti-government rhetoric and so on and the possibility of violence?

Speaker Pelosi: Well, I think we all have to take responsibility for our actions and our words. We are a free country, and this balance between freedom and safety is one that we have to carefully balance.

I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw this, myself, in the late '70s in San Francisco. This kind of rhetoric was very frightening, and it created a climate in which violence took place.

So I wish that we would all, again, curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements that are made, so that understanding that some of the people -- the ears that it is falling on are not as balanced as the person making the statement might assume.

But, again, our country is great because people can say what they think and they believe. But I also think that they have to take responsibility for any incitement that they may cause.

I wonder if the liberal fascists are so stupid as to not understand that there will be severe consequences if they don't stop trying to impose totalitarian marxism in America. Nazi Pelosi is clearly ignoring history, her forefathers in the Democrat party also ignored the warning signs when they stuck with their version of slavery. I hope that we can convince the liberal fascists to peacefully relocate to their coastal urban enclaves, but the ball is in their court. They are the ones assaulting the Constitution. Obama was the one who said "they bring a knife, we bring a gun." "Get in their faces". Turnabout is fair play. The liberal fascists don't understand that they live in urban areas that will easily be cut off from transportation, communications, food and fuel supply, and then systematically reduced.

I see. When left wing nut jobs (and eventually even the main stream of the Democratic Party) continually and heatedly protested the war on terror and the resulting overthrow of brutal dictator Saddam Hussein, their dissent, according to left wing politicians and news outlets, couldn't possibly be viewed as providing aid, comfort, support or motivation to our enemies, enemies who'd murder millions of Americans and then celebrate. The protesters were tauted as Patriotic. Now those of us who oppose Obama on philosophical grounds are painted as dangerous or racist. What a load of crap. This from the friends of the Administration that is in bed with anti-war crowd like the Weather Underground?!

Since I wasn't a fan of corporate welfare, or big business fighting our wars, or even the entrenchment of sectarian religious views in law, I didn't vote for Bush in 08. In fact, I have voted Democratic consistently for many years. Obama's crummy policies, which rely on and place way too much trust in corrupt big government (far scarier than big business) and its agents of implementation (witness ACORN corruption) and now the rhetoric from politicians like Pelosi and Carter have permanently alienated me. I can't imagine voting Democratic ever again. The policies, views, and now tactics to shut down debate coming from the Democratic Party are blatantly un-American.

If there is an act of terrorism or violence foisted on the American people, domestic or foreign, I will hold the Obama Administration responsible, since it carries the full responsibility of law enforcement/defense. Try to blame protesters or dissenters, and you simply show yourself to be a fool.

Obama, Pelodsi, and Reid: your season will surely pass. And not a day too soon. We need real leadership.

By her inane, hysterical statement, Pelosi has just made herself irrelevant in the national debate about Democrats' out-of-control tax and spend policies. The tea party protestors have been very peaceful, especially when they are compared to Pelosi's pals on the Left. The tea party protestors are generally middle-aged and middle class. They aren't the type of people who would start tire fires, throw garbage cans through plate glass windows or attack police.

Those are the tactics of Pelosi's leftist buddies who show up at G20 Summits to cause mayhem. Those are the tactics of ELF who commit arson to make their warped political arguments. Those are the tactics of the SEIU who send their union thugs to assault law-abiding people who are exercising their rights under our First Amendment. Those are the tactics of ACORN who routinely suborn perjury and conspire to defraud the American People by giving illegal advice on tax evasion. Pelosi's people are the jack-booted New Black Panther thugs who stood in front of a Philadelphia polling place in November 2008 and threatened white voters.

Pelosi is a disgusting excuse for a Congressional Representative. She has done nothing but further divide an already divided country. Her inane, hysterical statements do nothing but muddle the very real debate about our country's future, our country's failing economy and our country's steadily declining international influence. This clueless, inept woman will go down in history as one of the worst Speakers the House has ever had the misfortune to endure.

Ms. Pelosi, the reason you are experiencing opposition is because of the policies you and the others are now attempting to impose on the American people whether they want such policies or not. Leftism, socialism and Marxism are not wanted here, and oligarchical, elitist control is particularly unwelcome. If you think to suppress all normal American traditions in a flood of imperious and alienating legislation, then you are going to experience opposition, and tears won't help in the least. A very large percentage of the population knows what is going on now, and it is not possible to change that. Now you will have to start doing your job, which is precisely to listen to the people and then shape the government into the fulfillment of the constructive wishes of the people. Any other course is the blackhearted wish of the forces of selfishness, greed and arrogance, and, as you are an American, a woman, and a human being, you should have no part in it.

Oh, and lets not forget the most recent comments from our past and no longer very esteemed President Carter that anyone who is critical of President Obama's policys or positions is racist.

While I agree with her that it is time to stop this very irresponsible and unproductive name calling, she needs to have a very stern talk to her own party.

Perhaps someone might remind her of Harry Truman's quote: "The Buck Stops Here".

She is no more concerned for the health and safety of Americans than she is a trusted scholar on Roman Catholic doctrine.

Where was her concern about violence when lunatic leftists were biting off fingers and assaulting elderly black men at town halls?

Let's see, we've got Obama's mentor saying "God Damn America", Fat butt Murtha calling Marines murderers, Kerry, saying that only stupid people join the military, Boxer insulting an Admiral, Landrieu that threatens to slap President Bush, a first lady that wasn't proud of her country until a year ago, a media that thought it was cute to drag Palin's teenage pregnant daughter and Palin's own handicapped child thru the mud, a president that has bowed down to every enemy this country has and has surrounded himself with a bunch of radical tax cheats.

When Coat Pink's inflammatory rhetoric against our military and President George Bush was joined by the many protesting President Bush's policies, to the point of calling him a liar, calling General Petraeus a traitor, and calling General Powell and Secretary of State Rice by the racist slur of "Uncle Tom", those protesters were hailed by Pelosi as patriots.

Now that the common voter has decided to make his and her voice heard, those without solid arguments find no other recourse but to yell, call citizens traitors, and compare them to racist mobs.

Well, to differ on policies is not to be a racist. I differ, sorry, I abhor Nanci Pelosi's policies and hypocrisy, she is white. I hate that those who control our taxes are tax cheats, Rangel is black and the other goofball that cannot figure out Turbo Tax (Gaithner) is white... I can go on forever naming honest policy differences, and that does not make me a racist.

With regard to the healthcare debate, what WE The People need to do is convince ALL Congressmen that they need to take an HONEST APPROACH...one "problem" at a time.

President Carter is speaking a truth that few Americans are willing to hear. He grew up at the height of Jim Crow in the Deep South—the man knows racism when he sees it. Most white Americans simply cannot face the ugly past of “race in America” and how much it is still with us today.

Rep. Joe Wilson’s, R-S.C., inability to contain himself from yelling out “You lie” at the president during a joint session of Congress is a classic case of an angry Southern white male reaching his limit with the uppity Ivy-League educated, one-term-senator-turned-president. Some may argue that this doesn’t make him a racist. But at best, his outburst demonstrates an intolerance and a lack of respect that he never would have shown to a white commander in chief. Such is the case with much of what we hear from our fellow citizens. There is an anger, a vitriol, a hatred of this president that seems deeply personal. And it is unnerving.

As Americans, all of us should be alarmed at the increasing hostility of our dialogue: There’s Fox News TV host Glenn Beck calling the president a “racist.” Rush Limbaugh declaring that “Obama’s America” is one “where black kids can beat up white kids on a bus.” Then there’s the “birthers” who swear that Obama is not a legitimate commander in chief and those who sob that they want “their country back.” My question is: From whom do you want your country back?

The problem is that we’ve gotten so used to not dealing with racial tensions in this country. They’ve become so nuanced that we cover or shrug them off because they are not as blatant as they were in the 1790s, 1840s, 1920s or 1960s. That’s a mistake. Whether we like it or not, those tensions are still here with us.

Earlier this year, the Department of Homeland Security posted a warning that violence from right wing vigilantes posed a threat. The GOP was outraged and threw a hissy fit, claiming that they were unfairly maligned as victims. Shortly thereafter, a guard was killed at the Holocaust Museum and Dr. George Tiller was murdered, both by right wing vigilantes. Any contrition from the GOP regarding their faux outrage? Of course not.

Now we have people showing up at Obama speeches carrying weapons; demonstrators carrying signs comparing Obama to (take your pick) Hitler, Mao, and an ape; the right wing leadership (Palin/Hannity/Beck/Limbaugh) making daily fabrications about Obama and his policies.

Or why she exempted American Samoa from the minimum wage bill. Just because Starkist influences 80% of the work force there, Starkist is a major contributor in her campaign and she and her husband owned 17 million in Starkist stock at the time doesn't necessarily mean she operates with a double standard.

The question is not "if" there is going to be a revolution in this country but "when" and what form it will take. My fear is that it will be violent. It will not be a race war, but a war to decide if this country is to continue being a Constitutional Republic or a Socialist state in the fashion of the European nations.

What hypocrisy. Nancy Pelosi called dissent un-American, and there is nothing more guaranteed to entrench dissent and ramp it up than the failure of politicians to acknowledge its legitimacy. I was in many obstreperous protests on the liberal side, but apparently liberals simply can't take being on the receiving end of revolution. In good conscience, I could never condemn others for behavior in which I once engaged. Ms. Pelosi is the Speaker of the House, and she has harmed the quality of the discourse more than any ordinary citizen exercising their rights. I am a registered Democrat, and I am sick to death of this woman. She is divisive, mean-spirited, and entirely cocooned in her own world. Women in my family (all feminists and feisty) are changing their voter registration to Independent; I have been hanging on, but this is the last straw.

I don't see anything wrong with Nancy Pelosi said.

She just said she worried that conservative protests would lead to the violence she saw in the 70's. That's understandable given that people were showing off guns at health care forum events and we've had people praying for the president's death. There's always an unbalanced fruit cake in every group.

I think people are upset because she is comparing the protestors to GAY protestors. It sounds like homophobia.

Madame Pelosi presumes to know us, but I'd wager quite a bit that she doesn't know the first thing about me. Real acquaintances of mine know that I am not violent, notwithstanding strong feelings on many stereotypically hot-button issues.

We are all human beings. Maybe it's time we started treating each other as such. All the right wingers I know are real people who love their real families dearly. I do not know a single racist among those I know.

Keep disenfranchising us. Keep up the "us vs. them" rhetoric - see what happens. The irony is that she warns of taking responsibility, yet she perpetuates the divisive, rancor inspiring sentiment that she verbally condemns. Perhaps if she took the high road and made the first move in treating the "other side" as fellow human beings, the hatred would begin to fade some. Perhaps if she set an example and turned the other cheek a bit more and stopped demanding retribution for careless words, something we are all guilty of - perhaps we'd start to see America begin to unite again.

Speaking of a word that was banned on the Floor... Look at the log in your own eye before you notice the specks in ours. Maybe I should adjust my expectations of civility among "leaders" who are supposed to be setting an "example." Those in charge are deliberately manipulating us against each other for political gain. Don't fall for it.

We are among you. There are more of us than you think. We are normal people and are not racists, nor are most of us hateful people.

I read through some of the previous comments -- both pro and con -- and I do not think Ms Pelosi is saying that no one should criticize Barack Obama or the policies of his administration. I think her concerns are about the tone of some of the rhetoric -- that could truly incite certain types of individuals to do harm -- or think they are justified in inflicting harm.

I think there are some who don't understand why people may be concerned when they see protestors flashing guns at tea parties and other events.

I know for a fact that not everyone who disagrees with health care reform is a racist. That's obvious.

But I and many others also know that racists are having a field day with this new black president. And taking full advantage of distrust between races to shore up dissension. Today, White supremacists encourage its followers to take to the internet and spread hatred, especially since the obama election. There may be a couple of their followers posting on this website for all I know.

The KKK has been doing its work online since the 90's.

After the election, the number of white supremacists working the internet soared.

That's right.

The violence that has been seen was done at the behest of Obama after he called the Union thugs to town hall meetings to knee-cap dissenting Americans.

Perhaps these clowns should be censured and impeached or have their press credentials lifted or be placed in Alzheimers units for using incendiary rhetoric in an effort to inflame passions, insult citizens, and incite riot.

Where was this tone from the Madame Speaker when cinemas played a movie about President Bush being assassinated? Did she find the producers of that movie to be "inciting" "unbalanced" Americans to action? If God forbid, something would have happened to President Bush, does anyone believe, even for a moment, that she would have taken this tone? Those folks were not only making a political statement -they were profiting by it as well! How are the true, hard-working, voices of Washingtonian policy opposition benefitting now? It's certainly not financially, and it's surely not intellectually- liberals with socialist/communist tendencies -embodied in folks like Mrs. Pelosi -whether they are intentionally aware of there push/slant/bias or not-think we are brain-dead, but have in actuality set our country on a course leading to the destruction of our democracy. Again, I will genuinely ask -do you sincerely believe that Mrs. Pelosi, or any other Democrat of her persuasions, would be voicing these sort of statements if the potential "victim" were a Republican or worse yet, a Conservative?

I am sorry, so very sorry, for feeling twinges of unmitigated fury when called "Nazi" or "racist" or other level headed, perfectly accurate and value-neutral terms such as "redneck".

Furthermore, I regret I have but one life to give for my Obama. Or was that my Pelosi? (I get all these foreign names mixed up, but I'm just an ignorant American after all.)

Yes, I know we are bound to sin again, so I apologize in advance for the bloody revolution you are provoking this very moment. I also apologize for all those graduate-degree holding professionals I know, with six-figure plus jobs, some with real wealth, who will be in there fighting along with us lowly Redneck trash.

We must learn to kiss your rather large and multihued non-white bottoms as, it is clear to all you were born to rule us. This much is obvious by all your accumulated accomplishments: the scientific innovation, the philosophical advances, the nations built, the peace won, yes, You the Multicult are rightful rulers. After all, you stole America from us filthy racist klansmen fair-and-square, one vote, one payoff and one cheap trick at a time.

Again, please forgive us our sins against thy divine majesty.

Republicons, those who are neocons and religious fanatics, not to be confused with traditional Republicans, are insurgents.

Their goal is to install a neocon-fascist government.

The first step is to divide the country by attacking President Obama and his administration by any and every means possible regardless of the truth of the facts, if any, on which their arguments depend. Their purpose is to reduce the country to a condition where they can take over control of our government without any organized resistance. In their minds, money and power trump the general welfare of the People - the Constitutioin be damned.

When someone as inept as Nancy Pelosi makes a valid point against you, then you surely must realize how far you've wandered from the center of reason. Pelosi and her brethren need to demonstrate restraint, but the right-wing needs to stop spreading delusions.

In politics, perception is often mistaken for reality. It needs to be remembered that when you use hyperbole and become the first person to say a particular outrageous idea out loud, no matter how much you're trying to attribute it to your opposition, you can instead be identified as the sole author of the idea. A hyperbole can go uninterpreted while its words commit to public memory.

Cases in point: Sarah Palin was the first to propose death panels, Greg Gutfeld was the first to claim widespread Republican racism, and now Pete Sessions is the first person in this matter to refer to assassination.

Perhaps the right-wing needs a much stronger warning than any they've received, lest they find themselves in more trouble than they can possibly evade with another one of their perjurious 30-second TV spots.

You're skating on a dangerous ledge, right-wingers. Try focusing less on childish delusions of vengeance and more on recovering some of the honor you've dumped overboard in recent years. No one of intellect believes your lies, and by telling them for so long, all you've done is left your reputations in the gutter. It can even be forgiven that the worst terrorist attack in US history happened on your watch, AS LONG AS you can demonstrate a measurable improvement in maturity and wisdom.

The whole world's watching. Please try not to embarrass us any further. And for goodness sake, stop escalating the debate into the realms of ethnic hatred, political killings and the extermination of those you deem "unfit". Can't we all just get along?

"First I am considered a "racist" if I disagree with President Obama."

Nobody is calling you a racist for disagreeing with Obama. (That's not what Carter said: read the interview). However, if you show up at a protest with a sign that compares him to apes in a zoo, or print campaign literature which shows him eating watermelon and fried chicken, or you're a Republican chairman distributing ditties with racial overtones -- all of these things (and many more) happened -- then you're a racist.

There are plenty of reasons to oppose Obama's policies. No problem with that. However, much of the venom which is directed at him is based in the refusal to accept the fact that a black man is President. If he was a pasty faced white guy, he would not be subject to anything close to the level of abuse directed at him. That's racism, pure and simple. Refusing to acknowledge it is sheer blindness.

Hey PupsMcCann,

If protesters threatened Bush's life, they were wrong. No doubt about it. The Right does not have a monopoly on idiocy.

The difference, of course, is that while there are whack jobs on both extremes, the whack jobs on the left were never given implicit or explicit support by any responsible Democrat. Did you hear Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, the New York Times, or anyone else endorse these guys? Of course not.

Today you have the leadership of the Right (Palin/Boehner/Limbaugh/Hannity/Beck) cheering these guys on. Did you hear a peep out of Sarah Palin when someone yelled "Kill him" at one of her campaign rallies? Of course not. When pressed about it, Boehner and the other key Republicans won't disavow the nutjobs, they just say something like "people are justifiably upset," as though it's Obama's fault that people carry signs comparing him to Hitler. I don't hold the Left or the Right responsible for what fringe elements do. Unless what the fringe elements do is aided and abetted by the political leadership.

I spoke to many people and the overwhelming majority were like myself, just frustrated citizens who came on their own for any of a number of issues all ultimately related to their loss of liberty and the indebtedness of our nation. All of those on the left, NONE of whom were there who attempt to describe this event are LIARS, looking to put their own spin on things. There were as many women as men, the crowd was mature and well be halved, the police arrested no one and yet the left is still desparately trying to spin this into something it clearly was not; they do so at their peril.

I wonder what Obama was thinking as I watched him circle overhead, making a couple laps in Marine 1 before catching his flight to Minnesota. He was watching and I wondered if he really is so stupid as to think what he saw below was anything other than it really is; his nation in revolt.

It's the height of hypocrisy for the Republicans to denounce Pelosi when all they have been doing is spreading lies and fears and inciting Americans to think that Obama is a (a) fascist, (b) socialist, (c) communist, etc. ad nauseum. (Apparently no one has given the Republicans political science lessons or they would no better.)

The Republicans encourage the lunacy we have seen and heard at town-hall meetings and are inciting Americans through their out-right lies and fear tactics to think that if health care reform passes Americans will lose their health care, their choices, etc.

I wonder what would happen if politicians were forced to wear lie-detectors when the speak -- well, maybe it wouldn't matter -- they've been lying for so long they don't know the truth or even care to know the truth.

GOP = greedy old prevaricators (yes, that's a fancy word for liars!)

"Siliconvalleyman, I'm a conservative and so talk with many other conservatives. I can say with all honesty that not one has made a racial comment regarding the president."

No doubt. I argue with the conservatives on www.informedspeculation.com all the time and never heard a racist remark. As I wrote above, there are plenty of legitimate reasons to oppose Obama's policies. If you disagree: fine, bring it on.

However, there is a distinction to be drawn between reasoned argument and the kind of venomous response which Obama gets not only from town hall events and protests, but from talk radio and the blogosphere. There is an undeniable racial element to much of this, whether it is explicit ("there are lions in the zoo and lying Africans in the White House") or implicit (the whole Birther idiocy is nothing more than another attempt to portray him as something other than a true American, just like Sarah Palin talks about rural conservatives as the "real America." I'm just as American as she is, and I'm neither rural or conservative.)

Let's review. Not all opponents of Obama are racist. Some are. Their racism manifests itself in ugly ways. Being ostrich-like and ignoring that is not helpful.

And it's not new. They are using the tried and true method of destroyihg the opposition. The opponents of big government, healthcare takeover, big deficits, and corporte giveways are merely "hater" and "racists".

Pelosi, Carter, myriad Obama supporters and posters, and of course the MSM, have all taken their frontline positions against "Hate" and "Race", while The One aloofly sits at a distance saying "not me". They are the "bad cops", he is the "good cop".

Actually what she me4ans is that we are to give up our freedoms to ensure her safety. NOT HAPPENING. ONLY through freedom is there safety.

Yes our politicians are scared, and they should be. They have crossed the line nad they know it and still they persist. IT is only right that WE THE PEOPLE correct the government. WE don't need guns for this. But I think they are finally hearing the roar that they have ignited in the country. It is the ROAR of freedom and it will not be silenced because some old lady is now quaking in her shoes and hearing her knees knock.

No. Never said anything like it. She said that some protesters are "carrying swastikas and symbols like that" into town hall meetings. A demonstrably true statement of fact. Protesters did, in fact, go to town hall meetings and protests comparing Obama to Hitler.

So you have the ultimate irony: it is the right wing fringe which compares Obama to Hitler, and then also twists what Pelosi said to imply that she was the one who called the protesters Nazis. Par for the course. To the right wing, white is black and black is white.

It's just a case of unmitigated gall on the part of this joker Pete Sessions to criticize Speaker Pelosi when all she is trying to do is call for people to remain calm in the face of a very volatile political situation. After all it's Mr. Sessions party, along with their loud-mouthed media pundits, that is stirring up the rancor and anger among the (to put it lightly) misinformed people who follow them. It's also the republicans who are allowing all this misinformation to be spread around. If Mr. Sessions is so concerned about what the speaker is saying why doesn't he encourage those in his party to reign in the extremists in their ranks who are running around perpetuating these lies about the president and his policies. It seemed to me that Speaker Pelosi was asking for people to act responsibly, unfortunately it appears the republicans and their followers have conveniently forgotten the definition of responsibility.

Republicans have nothing to gain with racist remarks or actions it is the Democrat party that uses these unfortunate events as "playing cards". Whether it was the segregationists, the KKK, those opposing the civil rights movement, or even the slave owning South, the one thing they had in common was these were ALL Democrats...Now the Democrats fancy themselves the "champions of color" all the while furthering the Democrat agenda on the backs of people of color. The Republicans have long stood for "Equal Rights" for all people, whether it was Abraham Lincoln (Republican) debating Steven Douglas (Democrat) against slavery, or Republican like Martin Luther King, Jr. (Republican) fighting for a color blind country...Just a quick google search of Robert Byrd will point out what the CURRENT leadership thought of Martin Luther King Jr. and his efforts. By the way do the supporters of the Democrat party on this thread know that the esteemed Robert Byrd (Democrat) was a KKK leader?

Those that don't think like your closed mind does, were not the enemy, they were just opposed to your view, much like when this country was formed by negotiation, and discussion, until the our wonderful Constitution was born. Not you though, you said there would be no bipartisanship because you had the votes to get it through the bills you wanted to without it, and didn't care what those opposed thought or why. This country belongs to all people not just some jug heads in congress, or in the White House. Have you ever read the Constitution? I doubt it, or would not be treating Americans as if they are under some sort of dictatorship, you should read it though it is beautiful, and an inspired document that was brought together by many opposing views and they were able to negotiate the way until the greatest country in the world was formed from them. Do you have any idea why so many want to come here from foreign countries? It is only partly for our Capitalistic system where even the single individual can become reward by hard work, and/or their ingenuity , it is mostly because of the rights, and freedoms given to the people, and the governments contract with the people, to honor the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution, the contract you are trying to break.

Is this the same Nancy Pelosi who castigated the insurance companies and now
is hosting a reception for the insurance lobbyists? Get real people, she says what is politically expedient and then does just what she pleases. There is no telling how much damage she has done to the CIA, who whatever you may think of them, has helped keep us safe since 9/11. The agency's ability to recruit people to continue to protect us has been greatly compromised.

Poor Nancy,

Tears from a clown. Didn't she listen while the racists in congress rebuked Wilson on a point of order.

Had to be a point of order. They didn't mind when Stark called Bush a liar.

So it must be just when the liar comment is hurled.

Its great that in the hundreds of years of our congress being in session that it took the racist congressional caucus to finally take floor rules seriously.

We can only hope this is a time honored tradition.

msealock,

referring to your comment:

"WE THE DEMOCRATS WON...WE DIDN'T HAVE TO STEAL THE ELECTIONS. JUST GET YOUR BUTT OVER IT."

Hey dems, it was nine years ago, so you probably forgot: had Gore won his home state of Tenn, he would have won the election. Further, just because your guy lost in the S. Ct. does not mean anything was stolen. Is every successful party before the S. Ct. a thief? Or, only those you don't like.

As for Pelosi, if you think she is for real, you are naive. She is pandering to her SFO constituency. Everytime I see her, I can't help thinking about "New and Improved Joker Products!!"

The selective amnesia of some folks here is not surprising. The comparisons to Hitler began under Bush with the leftists, and calling the President a liar was a tradition started way before anyone heard of Joe Wilson - that honor belongs to Harry Reid - a disreputable oaf with questionable ethics who called Bush a liar on Meet The Press in 2004, and followed that up with a "Bush is a loser" in 2005. The whole Hitler comparison? Democrats started that 'strategery' as well. Dick Durbin, Jack Murtha and others likened the troops to "Nazis" and Abu Ghraib to the "Holocaust". Did you conveniently forget that wonderful MoveOn.org ad back in 2004 which showed Hitler morphing into Bush??? The well was poisoned by vile Democrats long ago. Now, Congress is rife with corruption, led by the liar in chief himself. They attack Joe Wilson for daring to call the President a liar, but have no problem doing it to Bush. They pass a resolution rebuking Wilson within days of the event, but Charlie Rangel (whose ethics violations even stick in the craw of the editorial staff at the Post) still retains his leadership of one of the most influential posts in the House with nary a word (or a tear) from that hag Nancy.
Of course, selective amnesia usually accompanies brain trauma, and liberals clearly suffer from serious trauma to the brain.

I think that the left needs to start digging for news in places other than MSNBC and The Daily Show. The amount of ignorance regarding their political opposition is stunningly massive.

Thinking for yourself is a good thing. First, do some research, check out some facts. Understand biased opinion. In other words THINK, PEOPLE. Always ask yourself 'who is this person that is giving me this information?'

And if you're getting it from the more biased aspect of the MSM, the only thing that you all are doing is mimicking each others prejudices.

They have nothing except hatred for anyone who disagrees with them and cannot accept when they are told they are wrong. They cannot and never hve debated any issue we face, they just resort to the same old tactics of smearing and running. To those who think it is repubs doing the fearmongering, try reading the bills. Ask why she knows nothing about ACORN, doesn't feel a need to investigate them, or why she is so busy censuring Wilson for being rude yet says nothing about the fraud some of her party are under investigation for. The American people are tired of the race card. Tired of being labeled by liberals as everything they are not. Pelosi incites violence in an area there was none with her remarks and name calling and anger with the voters. You know, Nan, sometimes people really do disagree with you. For someone who is always talking about what you never heard and how you were misled and duped, maybe YOU should smarten up a bit and quit worrying about assaination threats that are not there.

Oh, so NOW it's not okay to protest, right?

I sure don't remember Pelosi getting all weepy-eyed and "concerned" when liberals were protesting the Iraq war (which isn't the best idea ever either).

What I think she's really doing here is playing politics, which is what she's always done, and the last election was just another example of it.

By Democrat Party demands, John McCain's standing to run for president was "vetted" in the House of Representatives - which I'm sure will cause many of you to groan, but look at it this way: WHY doesn't barack obama release any of the personal records about himself - not JUST the birth certificate but a whole hose of other records about him have been sealed, and you have to admit that Democrats would not have tolerated the same situation from George Bush,(and neither would I as an American citizen)!

But what is wrong with Pelosi here? She sounds as if she's completely gone over the edge because she's implying that we are so "violent" that she thinks we're just standing outside of Congress' doors, ready to come in and behead people or something! She is rapidly reaching the stage of paranoia, and for what - because part of America disagrees with obama?

I believe the reason Pelosi was emotional was due to:

Obama's poll numbers dropping dramatically.

Cap and Trade will probably not go through.

Health Care may not pass.

Acorn has been exposed and lost funding.

Van Jones had to resign.

2010 is around the corner, and she probably will no longer be the Majority Leader because the Democrats are on target to lose many seats.

In addition, she is stunned by the turn of events with the PEACEFUL PROSTEST by thousands in Washington on 9/12....they even cleaned up their own trash, unlike the mountains of liter and garbage left at Obama's Inauguration.

The "we won" arrogance and locking the Republicans out of meetings has been a great success for Speaker Pelosi, so she had to talk about 1978?

The only violence I have seen is by SEIU Union bullies on a a conservative Black protester( they were arrested), and a Move On. Org. member biting off a Conservative Protester's finger.

No, Speaker Pelosi is overwhelmed at how quickly they are losing the message in Washington, so she and the Democrats have to play the race card and pretend to feel threatened, in the hope that can regain control of the message.

By the way, was she concerned about President Bush when an ASSASSINATION FILM WAS MADE showing his "death"? WHERE WAS HER OUTRAGE THEN?

There was none. She only has it when she needs it politically...but with her poll ratings, I am sure the Majority of Americans are on to the game she is playing.

all this hoopla about race is ridiculous...
first of all obama is as much white as he is black....2nd....white people elected him so they dont hate him because he has black skin ..they thought he would change things for the better...3rd....there are as many black racist in the u.s. as there are white racist....so thats about a wash....and 4th how could they think that we forgot the hate filled retoric spewed at george bush....a lot of it by black people....were they racists by any chance?
5th....seems to me the race card is only being played by democrats...most republicans expect black people to be treated the same as white people....joe wilson didnt yell you lie because of the color of the presidents skin it was because he was mistaken in what he was saying....remember when george bush was mistaken about wmd....i think the dems called him a liar every chance they got...so get over it dems....obama is being treated the same as george bush was...

Take a look--and listen---to this 2006 protest against George Bush which took place in San Francisco. "Who is the criminal?" "George Bush" "Who is the terrorist?" "George Bush". Protesters calling for regime change.

Where was the alarm from the media about such rhetoric then? Can someone find a condemnation of that protest from Nancy Pelosi?

I expect cheap politics from the Democrats. How can so-called journalists sleep at night after being complicit in slandering decent Americans who are exercising their Constitutional rights? Shame on you.

She has threatened violence for violence based on some un-known,vague comment...and that is news worthy? Or is this another tactic to cover a cleverly disguised fact the President is indeed a liar, He has never written a healthcare bill, Bacus just finished writing it which means at the time of Obama's speech, it did not exist!

This isn't about racism or healthcare, this is about economic control and the government's unlimited access to whatever they want by way of the people in which they were chosen to represent....many representatives who have forgotten their place.....term limits for all!

Obama is safe from this Republican. The Obama presidency is so spectacularly un-successful, I want him to stay there the full four years. In four years, the Republican Party will lead both House and Senate, and hold the Presidency again, mostly due to President Obama, though Pelosi, Reid, Rangel, Frank, and Dodd are screwing things up faster than a 24v power drill.

The Republicans goal here is to incite people to violence. When black people explode in anger they will then blame them and scream we told you so. Rush Limbaugh telegraphed that yesterday when he talked about Obama's America where a poor little white boy get beat up by a bunch of black thugs on a school bus. Did Rush even mention the incident in Georgia where the white man beat a black female military person down in front of her 7 year old daughter just bcause the lady had the nerve to ask him to be careful because he almost hit her child with the door?

Republicans are playing with fire and stoking a whole lot of hate. Nancy Pelosi, Jimmie Carter, Howard Dean and James Clyburn are absolutely right in their observations. Republicans know exactly what they are doing. They seem to want violence.

Republicans are trying their best to convince people that none of what is going on with the criticism of President Obama and their activities are racist, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see it for what it is. They want you to believe that EVERYONE who disagrees with President Obama is a racist. In fact, the right wing haters are the only ones saying that. I think though the American people are seeing through their ruse with their very reaction to Speaker Pelosi.

How callus and mean spirited can people be? Republicans are truly doing a great disservice to this country. It wasn't bad enough that George Bush and Dick Cheney ruined our reputation around the world, now the Republicans in Congress are showing just how intolerant some Americans can be. How sad they hate America or is it President Obama so much that they are willing to destroy the country just to see this President fail.

Then they all quit the democratic party and joined the Republican party where they've been welcomed with open arms.

God have Mercy on Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She’s crumbling under the weight of her own choices. “I think we all have to take responsibility for our actions and our words,” she says. She’s right. I think her fractured performance this afternoon was pathetic. It was her exhausted reaction to the weight of her own years of contempt and hatred for each of us who take exception not only to her words, but to her direction. She has tried to bulldoze this nation into socialist chaos without debate, without releasing the text of the legislation before the House, without reading the documents or allowing time for anyone else to read them, without open discussions. In so doing, Nancy Pelosi has destroyed herself; it has begun to dawn on her that her days of power are fading. It’s over, Madam Speaker. It’s time to go home.

Hey Mom....news for you: Obama and the United States of America are mutually exclusive. It is Obama and his socialist controllers who plot the overthrow of capitalism with their repugnant brand of collectivism.

If Obama fails, then America survives.

America did not hire him to break promises like he has done with his failure to line item veto pork in the stimulus. He was not hired to dismantle healthcare without first keeping his promise to "fix" Washington and the bloated tax code and uncooperative congress. He was not hired to circumvent vetting of appointees by naming them czar. He was not hired to put additional tax burdens on the middle class with "cap and trade"...in fact he promised that zero additional tax would be borne by those who earn less than 250k.

So do yourself and everyone else a favor, STFU about how sad it makes you that Barry has been outed so quickly.

It most definitely is NOT only Republicans who are protesting, there are Independents, people unaligned with any party and even Democrats, a lot of them. Were you who disparage us aware that there are conservative Democrats?

We will have to wait until November of next year to see just how seriously those who are protesting really are....there are 36 Senators up for re-election next year and I hope they are shaking in their boots.

Madam Shrieker-

40 years ago, in California, the surf and beach was clean. There was no major development along the coastline. There was no gang-banging, rap music or any of the if it feels good, do it attitude.

Today, there is overcrowding, lack of fiscal responsibility and traffic is far worse, because of the poor planning by state government. Business have been forced out, due to the cost of implementation of businesses to comply with the regulations for "Green Initiatives" or have been taxed out of business.

When the Democrats took control of the State's Assembly and Senate and on a number of occasions, the governorship, the Democrats have effectively:

1. Spent more money on welfare and social welfare-type programs than any other State.

2. Prop 13- According to the California Board of Equalization data, property tax revenue has increased 800% since the measure passed in 1978. How much, you say? Revenues increased from $5.6 billion a year to $50 billion. Comparing this with general fund revenue, which largely consists of sales,
income and corporate taxes, which has increased 500% over the same period. This does not include the 400%+ penalty assessment fees for traffic tickets or any other fees that government agencies have tacked-on.

Sales taxes, which were at a mere 4%, has increased to 9.75%. Now you wonder why Californiains use E-Bay for their Christmas shopping?

3. Have raised University of California registration fees (California's term for "tuition")from $702 a year in 1980 to well over $9,100 a year.

Simply stated, every freaking place the Democrats go, they screw the system up for those who either work for a living or pay hard cash for services rendered.

Madam Shrieker, get your a55 back to California and stay there. I moved out here awhile back to get away for the likes of you and the rest of your "off-the-wall-crew" who want to spread your misery among the rest of the nation; Waxman, Becerra, Waters, Watson, Lofgren, Lee, Lofgren and Woolsey, to name a few.

You and your crew screwed-up California and please, GO THE HECK BACK THERE AND STAY THERE.

"Pastor Niemoller is now likening genuine opposition to assassination. Such insulting rhetoric not only undermines the credibility of his office, but it underscores the desperate attempt by his group to divert attention away from a the dirty Jews," Goebbels said in a statement. "During one of the most important political changes of our time, the German people have been completely abandoned and control given to the untermenschen. Voters are justifiably frustrated with Weimar, and Niemoller's verbal assault on voters accomplishes nothing other than furthering his reputation for being wildly out of touch with German Folk."

Ms. Pelosi called moderate independent voters like me, my wife and my dear mother "Nazi's" becuase we believe in God and love our country. Now she is concerned about violence?

She has advocated violence for over 30 years, now she is concerned? She has abused power and taxpayer money for quite some time, but now she is concerned? If she is so concerned about violence why not remove the root cause by resigning?

People publicly expressing concerns about their government's abuse of power should not receive such radical accusations... unless the government defending itself is indeed caught in the act of trying to harm the citizens. Calling out the "enemy" for exactly what you plan to do! Just like the Nixon era.

It isn't the heated conservative rhetoric or moderate, independent patriotic concerns that implicitly threaten our nation with violence. The explicit threat of violence is coming from the radical liberal fascists forcing their secular humanism religion down the throats of God fearing Americans in a short period of time in which they have been given power.

Rather than attempting to address legitimate concerns of millions of voters, Pelosi would rather equate those expressing those concerns with anti-black and anti-gay bigots, and threaten any public figure who sympathizes with either the concerns, or those expressing them, with grave political consequences.

There are also grave political consequences accruing to those who belittle the concerns of the majority of voters in this country who oppose the direction the Federal government is trying to go.

Protests against Obama's regime have been conducted in an orderly and civil manner. If any incivility exists, it is because of Pelosi, Obama and other fringe leftist wingnuts like them playing the race card and suggesting that violence is likely. Keep it up, Pelosi, you'll get what you wish for, and it will be your fault.

Going by the free market hypothesis of medical care a man who suffers a heart attack in restaurant with a doctor sitting next to him should be allowed to die without being rescucitated unless he pays the doctor for his service. You help your fellow man as much as you possibly can and society, countries and the human race shouldn't be based alone on money money money the whole time. It's disgusting. Learn to be pious.

Irresponsible opposition and ugly protests have already incited racial violence from the loonies: In Morrow, GA a man recently beat a young mother in front of her daughter all the while yelling ugly racial slurs at her (she's a Reservist serving Our Country). Hate crimes targeting Hispanic Americans rose 40 percent from 2003 to 2007 and probably still on the rise and this after they had declined for several years in a row. Yes, the Rush's, Glen's and Lou's of this world due incite violence and the Republicans that support these clowns are just as guilty.

If Congressman Sessions thinks Speaker Pelosi is overstating the case, how does he explain all the nuts showing up at town meetings with guns?

Last Saturday when President Obama was in Minneapolis, a guy who had been fired from his security guard job because he pepper-sprayed a woman for how she parked her car was walking around outside the Target Center with two guns.

Deer hunting season doesn't start in Minnesota for another two months.

There is an element in the opposition to the Democrats which is hysterical. The fact that some of them are also carrying guns confirms the Speaker's fears.

Speaker Pelosi was the true impetus behind the growth of the Tea Party movement. She woke the sleeping giant. Had the democrats continued with their "nudge" policy, we would have been totally socialists by the end of Obama's term, and Pelosi would be our dictator. But, she got overly confidant that her democratic majority would meet no obstacle as long as they could keep the annointed ONE out of the Oval Office and in front of his adoring public.

Then, she began to push.
Then, she began to shove.

She shoved Cap and Trade through by twisting arms and promising pork to Blue Dogs, dispite the fact that the phone lines were melting all day with calls against the legislation. Then she even bragged that she would shove health care through the House before the August break.

She got our attention!
http://bit.ly/nfbqH

SHE STARTED the vile mud slinging with her labels for the conservatives who exercised their freedoms and First Amendment rights at town hall meetings. SHE called them "astroturf" "swastika-wearing" "anti-American" protestors.

Funny thing. Before her comments, I never saw a Nazi reference on a sign. AFTER her comment, though, they came out of the woodwork! Great suggestion, there, Nancy!

Before the pot goes and calls the kettle black (Sorry, Bill! Forgive me, Jimmy!), she should realize that we are not against Obama, we are not against her, we are not racist or sexist. We just love our Republic and expect our leaders to follow the Constitution. Health care is a states' rights issue. Remove federal mandates on doctors and insurance companies and let it thrive through free enterprise. Cosmetic and lasic procedures keep getting cheaper and cheaper because the federal government doesn't interfere.

Why would anyone expect us to want to turn our health care over to a government who can't run Medicare, Medicaide, the Post Office, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, or Social Security?

We won't attack Mrs. Pelosi with words, but with ballots. I hope she's filled out a job application. Hmm... hmmm.... Just what kind of industry is hiring arm twisters?

Nancy Pelosi and the Obamacrat wing of the Democrat Party are getting more desperate by the day. And the Obamacrat lackies, many of whom posted comments here, can sense that their ship is sinking. Why? Because America is waking up to these frauds and enemies of the Republic. The Obamacrats are losing the debate, and their goal of crushing, neo-fascist govenment control over everything is slipping away.

As their name calling escalates, so too does the revulsion of America to the Obamacrat radical agenda. So anyone who criticizes or voices opposition to that agenda is called a "racist", a "nazi", and now an "assassin"! America is waking up! We now know who the crackpots are. They contol the White House and Congress. The 2010 electing is not far off, and America is ready to reject Obama's neo-fascist "change".

Those that can support the outrageous statements of this lying witch should really check themselves.

Calling those protesters "Un-American" is the farthest thing from the truth. This is how America started and is enforced by the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution. And she is the leader of her party, but, doesn't respect and lead according to the Constitution? She had to have a government jet to fly back and forth from San Francisco, while she and her husband are Billionaires and most likely have their own jets. She doesn't care about the American people, much less, the Constitution. It is power and greed that drives her. Running through the Stimulus Bill that has bankrupted our country for generations. That is why they ran through Cap & Trade (Tax) that is going to cost all Americans. And, like the restricted water supplies to the farmers in CA over a bait fish, if you give this federal government the right to regulate and collect revenues off all. I promise, the Middle Class will again pay for these cost because we don’t have a big lobbying firm paying off legislators. Why would you exempt the unions and the likes of Acorn from Cap & Trade? Big money, that’s how.

She is the most condescending person. When the left protest, that is American. When others that don't fall in line with her are un-American and now comparing peaceful demonstrations with the assignation of Harvey Milk, I’ve really questioned her stability. If you want to help America, then insist on investigations into Rangel and Murtha because these people are crooks and are still making decisions that affect us all. How long did it take to get Jefferson out after being caught with $90,000 in his freezer. This occurs in both parties and houses. See, they support those that have stolen millions from the American people. Throw the bums out. I hope people in and around SF have seen enough of her and throw her out. As leader, she does not represent us unless you can pay.

From Vanity Fair:

"“In that third year of the Kennedy presidency,” Manchester wrote, “a kind of fever lay over Dallas country. Mad things happened. Huge billboards screamed, ‘Impeach Earl Warren.’ Jewish stores were smeared with crude swastikas.…Radical Right polemics were distributed in public schools; Kennedy’s name was booed in classrooms; corporate junior executives were required to attend radical seminars.”

A retired major general ran the American flag upside down, deriding it as “the Democrat flag.” A wanted poster with J.F.K.’s face on it was circulated, announcing “this man is Wanted” for—among other things—“turning the sovereignty of the US over to the Communist controlled United Nations” and appointing “anti-Christians … aliens and known Communists” to federal offices.

And a full-page advertisement had appeared the day of the assassination in The Dallas Morning News accusing Kennedy of making a secret deal with the Communist Party; when it was shown to the president, he was appalled. He turned to Jacqueline, who was visibly upset, and said, “Oh, you know, we’re heading into nut country today.”

Manchester discovered that in a wealthy Dallas suburb, when told that President Kennedy had been murdered in their city, the students in a fourth-grade class burst into applause"

Now, then... that was 1963. If none of that sounds at all familiar to you then you are not paying attention.

The summer of 1963 I drove from Kansas-Texas-LA-Fla and remember the hatred for the Kennedy Bros (integration) and Earl Warren there. Signs everywhere and it was the main topic of conversation. (Kennedy was killed 3 months later.)
To me the talk was shocking and it is much the same now. So Nancy, you are correct..the atmosphere is full of hate and fear and it is racist and dangerous.
I would say, what planet do these people live on? How do they think this way...they cry socialism and others "isms" but they don't know what these ism's are....the comments are too ignorant to be classified...stupid does not even begin to describe them..sick does. These people do not deserve the wonderful government we now have and seem to prefer one that lied to them for years as our former administration did. They would rather spend billions on killing rather than saving lives...Again, I say, where do they come from as they do not represent any kind of religious or moral thinking I can identify...just hate, hate and more hate. What crippled brains they have...it is so sad to have them among us, but then we have a democracy and even hopeless individuals like this have the right to say what they think...(I use think loosely.)I have to admire our elected officials in this new administration who keep doing their courageous work despite this nonsense.

OPEN LETTER TO NANCY PELOSI
I read your warning of violence. Unlike the radical left, we on the Right do not participate in violence when we are speaking out to our leaders. Our protests have not resulted in arrests, unlike the Left protester during the Bush administration.
You will not silence us, by crying fake tears. We know that you are not human and are incapable of feelings of any kind other than contempt for the People of this country. You will not ignore us as we mean to pursue the road that will lead us back to the Constitution. You talk about the words we use, what a hypocrite, because it was you who demeaned us by calling us astroturf and mobs. If anyone is astroturf it’s you and your left wing radicals like Reid, Frank, Dodd and the rest of your cronies who deserve those titles. You have allowed our legislature to be bought off by special interest and radical left wing organizations.
The tables have turned and as one American citizen stated, the sleeping giant has awakened and we are ready to take our country back, not with violence, but with civil actions against those of you in the House, the Senate, the Bush and Obama Administration.
You have aggressively fought for a healthcare bill that will not serve the people well and will literally bury us in debt for generations. You will not participate in this and indeed you have the Cadillac of healthcare. You, being the servant do not deserve to have better healthcare than the People. That’s strike #1.
Six times you have blocked bills introduced to the House that would investigate Acorn and its affiliates. It is quite apparent that you have aided and abetted this criminal organization for your own benefit. Strike #2
You have participated in introducing bills and having them passed that are clearly against the Constitution and our laws. These bills have severely limited our freedom and have put our country into a debt that will not be paid off for generations to come. Strike #3
You have acquired am air about yourself, undeservedly and demonstrated that you are an elitist. You have spent our money on you and your family’s entertainment and travel. You have effectively thumbed your nose at the People and have refused to serve the People in a way that they deserve. Strike #4
In short, you have violated every rule of law and the Constitution. We have launched an investigation into you and your cronies. Some of the things that have been revealed are implications of fraud and treason. At the right time all of this will be revealed and everyone involved will be not only relieved of their post but also prosecuted.
Get ready to dye your hair to match the orange uniform you will be donning.

Well, let's be honest drbob... if you, your wife, and your dear mother showed up carrying swastikas, what would you expect to be called?

Fact check... Nancy Pelosi did not call anyone nazis. She pointed out that some people were showing up to town halls carrying swastikas. The con media took it from there. She also did not say people expressing dissent were "unamerican"... she said that people who shouted down other people so their voices could not be heard were unamerican.

I'm a Republican you close-minded moron. Granted, I sat out the Pres. portion of the last election, but that had nothing to do with Obama or McCain and everything to do with Palin.

And the Vanity Fair article is a discussion of a book about the assassination of President Kennedy. (Regardless of my conservative leanings, I do not think the assassination was a good thing by the way.) The author of the book was in Dallas to do his research.

If ever there was a time we needed Wm. Buckley it is now. All of the good ideas that the conservatives can offer are being drowned out. In order to regain broad political power, the Republicans need to focus more on ideas and less on anger and vitriol. The latter is a recipe for success in the short term, sure. But long term, we need to focus on our ideas.

In 2001, the Democratic Party made it a point to view the election of George Bush as illegitimate. They made it a point to be uncivil, in many ways, from the time he arrived at the White House until the time he left. The National Press and the White House press corps joint in that disrespect and it continued from the time George Bush got into the White House until he departed.

Now, suddenly, Speaker Pelosi wants to push all of that under the rug and tell us how we should be civil towards President Obama. Well, I'd hate to tell her this, but Republicans have been civil to President Obama. That's not to say they haven't disagreed with him, but they have been civil.

There were, according to reports, somewhere between 70,000 and a million protesters in Washington D.C. over the weekend. Were there any riots? Was there much in the way of civil disobedience? Was there anything but good old fashioned politicking going on last weekend? If Ms. Pelosi is afraid of the amount of people, what does that mean?

Ms. Pelosi should thank her lucky stars it's Republicans and Independents that disagree with President Obama. The vast majority of these people will be respectful of the president and the office, much more respectful than the majority of the Democrats showed to George Bush. Ms. Pelosi should worry if President Obama loses fellow Democrats who have shown a natural ability to be rude, mean and disrespectful and increasingly so.

I think the best analysis of the 9/12 event in DC has come from the DC police, no matter what Pelosi and co. might say in lying about this event. You can't lie about facts and figures from that day. The DC police said that this was the biggest event that DC had seen (OF COURSE topping Obama's soire), that over 500,000 people had to be turned away at from the city (because it was full, as they said), that these were the most law-abiding, clean people they'd seen. Take that, Pelosi. These just happen to be the regular Americans you put down regularly. They paid their OWN way to get there, because they were passionate enough to feel they HAD to do this. NO ONE HAS BEEN LISTENING. The government can lie all they want about the honest, passionate Americans, putting up whatever smoke screens they want. Anyone who thinks and can put two dots together can figure out the government's agenda--and it ain't good!

pelosi should be tried for treason. she is a disgrace to the nation.
shame these people here think this is a game. some of you spout stupid stuff like we won,get over it. who won? certainly not you,nor me.the country lost,and soon Qaddafi,the man who loves and admires obama,will be invited to the whitehouse on a regular basis. we are about to become libia,or iran,thanks to your stupidity.
stupidity,has no excuse. you could be just ignorant,but you could learn,and then you wouldnt be ignorant,but you evidently are not capible of learning,or you would not be in such a hurry to be traitors to your familys,who will have to live in what you helped create.traitors to your country,because you are so unwilling to see that we had the greatest nation under the sun,and pissed it away,just to say something stupid like we won.
dont expect sympathy from anyone when it comes full circle,and you are crying about the dictator you helped create.
