Unhinged Dem Leader Pelosi Chases Rep. Marino (R-PA) Across House Chamber After He Called Her Out
Scared Monkeys ^ | August 2, 2014

Posted on 08/02/2014 1:28:10 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

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, “It’s 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. That’s one thing that you don’t do.” File this one under, The truth hurts, don’t 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 didn’t 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.

ABC NEWS:

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 don’t have law and order,” Marino began as he wrapped up his comments on the border supplemental. “My colleagues on the other side don’t want to do anything about 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,” he continued. “They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it now.”

Off-mic, Pelosi then approached Marino, crossing the aisle in view of cameras, and apparently challenged Marino’s 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. That’s one thing that you don’t 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 Pelosi’s 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 Congressman’s apology.”

UPDATE II: Marino’s 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 staff’s 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.

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.

So much plastic used to prop up her old ugly sagging face that it’s invading her tiny brain.

“[Rep. Marino] did not apologize to Leader Pelosi and does not intend to do so as he has nothing to apologize for.

Exactly.

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."

The Dems did NOT want the House to be successful in passing a bill.

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.

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...”

.....Dems are all in a twist. They feel their power slipping away----they desperately need to paint the Republicans as obstructionist at every turn. It is what drives their fundraising. When Republicans actually accomplish something, the Dems go ballistic....b/c it reminds grassroots voters there really is a two-party system and that the other side can get things done: Quoting Michael Shires, professor of public policy at Pepperdine U. “The perspective for Republicans as obstructionists is a nationwide strategy by Democrats.......”

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?"

THIS PART IS PRICELESS POLITICAL THEATRE-- Pelosi approached Marino---just wanted to remind the Congressman that House Democrats had the (gasp) courage to pass the DREAM Act – and the courage to stand up for what the American people want: bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform.

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.

ROTFLOL.

============================================

BTW, all the polls show voters leaning Repub b/c of their strong stance against amnesty....FAR above all other issues.

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.

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.

She shouldn't use the DREAM Act in this context. It's poor salesmanship.
