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...
