Nance Pelosi takes crossing the aisle to the extreme
Rep. Tom Marino (R-PA) certainly did hit a nerve to say the least when he addressed the House regarding the debate on the border funding bill Friday night. Marino called out former Speaker of the House Nanncy Pelosi why when Democrats had control of the House, Senate and White House they did nothing about the border issue, but now with to make it a political issue. Needless to say, San Fran Nan then did something she never does, she came across the aisle. However, it was to confront Marino. After Pelosi said something to Marino, he responded, Its true, madam leader, I did the research on it, Marino said. You might want to try it. You might want to try it, madam leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. Thats one thing that you dont do. File this one under, The truth hurts, dont it.
You know something that I find quite interesting about the other side? Under the leadership of the former Speaker [Pelosi], and under the leadership of their former leader [Rep. Steny Hoyer], when in 2009 and 2010, they had the House, the Senate and the White House, and they knew this problem existed. They didnt have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it now.
The House then voted to approve the $694 million border supplemental, 223-189.
In an unusual breach of decorum, even for the divided Congress, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi chased Rep. Tom Marino across the House floor, taking offense at comments by the Pennsylvania Republican during debate on the border funding bill Friday night.
We dont have law and order, Marino began as he wrapped up his comments on the border supplemental. My colleagues on the other side dont want to do anything about it.

Off-mic, Pelosi then approached Marino, crossing the aisle in view of cameras, and apparently challenged Marinos assertion that Democrats did not do anything about the issue when they had majority control.
Yes it is true, Marino replied directly to Pelosi, who was House speaker in those years. I did the research on it. You might want to try it. You might want to try it, Madam Leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. Thats one thing that you dont do.
Marino then urged lawmakers to support the border supplemental because apparently I hit the right nerve.
Powerline opines, Before this morning, I regret to say, I was unfamiliar with Tom Marino. Today Marino is my hero. I have to second that as well!
UPDATE I: Pelosi spokeswoman Evangeline George attempts to explain Pelosis bizarre behavior.
According to Pelosi spokeswoman Evangeline George, Leader Pelosi just wanted to remind the Congressman that House Democrats had the courage to pass the DREAM Act and have the courage to stand up for what the American people want: bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform.
George added that Pelosi accepted the Congressmans apology.
UPDATE II: Marinos chief of staff, Bill Tighe, stressed that Marino did not apologize to Pelosi, and will not apologize.
It would appear that Rep. Marino did not apologize to Pelosi and San Fran Nan had more to say than just the Dream Act. Marino took to twitter and tweeted that Nancy Pelosi called me an insignificant person.
[Rep. Marino] did not apologize to Leader Pelosi and does not intend to do so as he has nothing to apologize for. She was entirely out of line in approaching him while he was recognized and delivering remarks on the Floor, Tighe wrote in an email. Her staffs comment in your story about her accepting his apology in simply not true.
Later, Marino took to Twitter to explain his side of the story.
Nan's been around a LOOOOOONG time
I must be old, I remember when people dressed up to go out. Even to the store or movie theatre. We were NOT an upper middle class family but my mother had gloves and several hats.
Mine, too. Daddy ALWAYS wore a suit when flying.
The Lincoln bedroom at 9:00 P.M.
Too long of a time.
Get the woman some Paxil...
Nancy has a melt-down.
Wow, I wasn’t a big fan for this bill but looking at how the libs have become unhinged over this makes me think, for one of the few times, the congressional GOP nailed the Democrats on an issue. The fact that SanFran Nan got all bent out of shape and went after Rep. Marino is priceless.
The Lincoln bedroom at 9:00 P.M. and please take a number
So much plastic used to prop up her old ugly sagging face that it’s invading her tiny brain.
Does she ever blink or does she always look like a dear in the headlights?
This is the exact methodology that should be employed at the very moment of any such outburst by any "liberal and progressive" communist agenda person that even starts to go off on a normal person stating the facts of a situation.
Just clearly state the facts and when the screeching starts wrap it up with something along these lines...
"There will be no apology for the facts I have stated and there will not be one in the near or distant future."
Nancy did not succeed in all the time she was Speaker (as Marino said). She's fit to be tied.
This was a very positive development. Now the onus is on Reid.
Miss Lube Rack 1959 to the rescue!
The truly sad part about all this, is Every Member of the House, Knows she is not playing with a full deck, and yet they still Refuse to Remove Her From the House for being UNFIT to SERVE. Which they have EVERY RIGHT TO DO.
"Free Republic is here to continue fighting for independence and freedom and against the unconstitutional encroachment of ever expanding socialist government...
We believe in the founding principles with all our hearts and mean to defend them to our dying breath..."
Even then she had the crazy eyes.
I don’t believe I’ve ever seen Pelosi move that fast !
but I do understand why the Dems are all in a twist. The Dems need to paint the Republicans as obstructionist at every turn, at every law. It is what drives their fundraising and what drives states to remain Dem. When the Republicans actually accomplish something it jars the optics, and reminds mom and pop voter there really is a two party system and that more than one party can get things done:
“says Michael Shires, professor of public policy at Pepperdine University. The perspective for Republicans as obstructionists is a nationwide strategy by Democrats...
On top that her spokesmouth lies cheaply.
Slow night for Jack?
political “_ _ _ _ Bucket”.
My be Syphilis kicking in
Banana Republic Nan. The ultimate bad loser her and Ginsberg.
Nice take---deserves a repeat.
Lest we forget---Nancy has been sucking up bigtime---b/c she figured latinos would bring her back to prominence as majority leader. But that's a pipe-dream now.
THIS NEEDS TO GO VIRAL: polls show Americans lean Repub b/c of their strong-anti-immigrants stance---FAR ABOVE all other issues.
HOW STUPID CAN HE GET? Boobamaba announced he is going to veto a solid pro-America bill.
NICE TRIPLE PLAY as midterns loom.....
(1) The Repubs took ACTION (the thing Boobamba/Dems feared most),
(2) sap-happy Dems are on vacation (salivating over their offshore holdings), and,
(3) the president is off playing golf (his lips firmly-planted on Central America's behind).
Course, it was scary when the Repubs hemmed and hawed, making a show of it, said they were moving on this.....as if they were caving in to Boobamba. But the border bill was 1000% pro-America....and I love the way the Pubs stuck it to Obama, calling attention to it by delaying their fall break.
Nice midterm present from Nanzi---lacerating Repubs for being pro-America. "How you gonna explain being against that border bill, Nanzi? Huh?"
..........was thinking of saying something along the same line.....you beat me to it..............
I’m missing happy hour,you bastard!
Looks like she’s going punch him.
OK, got it---pass it on. Dems are the imbeciles catering to the hordes at the border.
Reminds me of Cantor's ill-fated strategy---reminding voters about his opponents's positions----voters then dumped Cantor in favor of his opponent.
BTW, all the polls show voters leaning Repub b/c of their strong stance against amnesty....FAR above all other issues.
Sorry about that, but no worries! With the dems circling the drain, they’ll just keep getting louder and stupider—many more chances to play are coming right up!
He should have punched the bitch out.
It would have been a better way to show normal Americans how to stand up the Nancy and her goons AND American support for hi would have skyrocketed.
Because EVERYONE who’s not a leftist crazed dumbazz would have paid money to see here kneed out cold.
Nancy goes off the deep end. Harry is senile and Barry detached and not rational. What a country.
That's just funny no matter who you are.
Well anyway.... NOW you know how to get them to cross the isle. Lets see more of it!
Nancy has a melt-down.
Doused with a big old bucket of truth.
I enjoyed watching the people behind Marino slowly start smiling, and then laughing as looney tunes Pelosi came flying on her broom across the House floor.
Sad part is that they should have been calling these dirtbags out a long time ago.
Had she simply stayed in her seat, no one would have heard Marino’s speech. Now it’s all over the internet.
Does Nanny Pelosi realize how ridiculous and absurd she comes across? I don’t think that she has the mental capacity to experience shame or embarrassment.
And like Nanacy Pelosi, Harry Reid is showing signs of advancing senility.
Is history to be written by chronicling the acts of persons of diminished mental capacity?
Pelosi is very dangerous with her karate-chop gesturing.
San Fran Nan, discovered she is no longer a ‘spring chicken’ and can no longer run....
happens to all us OLD Girls, Nancy...your just now showing us how old and senile you really are....
way to go Pennsylvania guy...keep positive...
She shouldn't use the DREAM Act in this context. It's poor salesmanship.
Sorta like asking Hitler: "Well, just what have you accomplished???" "Hey, I killed 6 million Jews, didn't I?"
That’s a very nice picture.
Thanks. It was a gift from a wonderful FReeper. :)
With Ebola in America now, we may all be wearing gloves and hats again soon ...
