Pelosi and the Tea Party 'Share Views'
February 28, 2010 8:15 AM
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she has much in common with the Tea Party. The speaker now says she shares views with movement she dismissed last summer as being Astroturf -- her suggestion that the grassroots of the Tea Party were a creation of the Republican Party.
In a This Week interview with ABCs Elizabeth Vargas, Pelosi said, We share some of the views of the Tea Partiers in terms of the role of special interest in Washington, D.C., as -- it just has to stop. And that's why I've fought the special interest, whether it's on energy, whether it's on health insurance, whether it's on pharmaceuticals and the rest.
Pelosi held to her skepticism about what is behind the movement. Some of it is orchestrated from the Republican headquarters, Pelosi said. She also added that, Some of it is hijacking the good intentions of lots of people who share some of our concerns that we have about the role of special interests.

Yeah, but she’s also beginning to hear a faint rumble in the distance that is heralding the arrival of the avalanche that’s going to sweep her party of scum out of power.
ha ha ha ha..ha ha..no comment..just..ha ha ha ha...
Any real human with half a brain would have laughed in her face with these responses. I could never be a reporter.
****whether it’s on health insurance, whether it’s on pharmaceuticals and the rest.****
That’s true - she wants cheaper Botox and believes it should be covered under her tax-payer supported health plan.
(maybe it is)
It’s easy to get frustrated listening to the nonsensical dishonesty emanating from this vile partisan, but somehow I think this has to be her last year in the national spotlight. Her days as speaker are numbered.
She’s been spending time with Cheech and Chong again, getting into their stash.
The woman is crazier than I thought.
So Pelosi wants to throw herself out on her ass?
I knew I should have put the hip waders on this morning!
If she has so much in common with the tea parties, maybe she should put a grin on their faces...by resigning.
I wouldn’t even share a view with Nancy looking out the same window at the same piece of scenery!
My husband and I laughed out loud when we heard her say that. I guess she finally has realized she should be voted out of office. We agree on that.
Pelosi is delusional. She has completely lost grasp of reality. Bunker mentality.
Pelosi is such a wacko she is just getting scared that she will lose the position of Majority leader when the Dem's are voted out..We might not be able to get her crazy butt out but we can see to it by voting the other Dem's out she loses her job and her gavel..
I added a few keywords for this article.....feel free to add to the list.
>> The woman is crazier than I thought.
It’s the failure to recognize and report crazy that’s crazy.
The Democrats are not against Special Interests. They are against Special Interests that dont share their goal of a tyranical Democrat Dictatorship.
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she has much in common with the Tea Party.”... Ya, you mean as in swastika wearing, goose stepping, heil hitler hand raising, nazi loving, Arian nation building... that kind of in common? Hell Nancy you got it all wrong, that’s what WE were saying about YOU all along... sheesh, she still doesn’t get it!
Many democrat independents have an affinity with the tea movement yet basically are not involved because it is seen as a GOP or right wing group
Pelosi is simply reaching out to that base of voters conning them to believe her and her minions aren't out right Marxist
Ow. I have carpet burn on my jaw.
Which is it?
She has something on common with the Tea Party Movement
Pelosi says GOP has hijacked ‘tea party’ movement
Nancy Pelosi is questioning whether the conservative “tea party” coalition truly represents a grass-roots movement.
Pelosi calls tea party voters the “astroturf” movement.
She says many of those voters have good intentions
She says Republican Party has hijacked the movement for its gain.
This B—ch is insane...
Stupid is as Stupid does.
She’s always drinking.....
Asked at her weekly press conference today if the Senate can use the reconciliation process to fix the bill to the Houses liking, she said, What you call a complicated process is called a simple majority. She firmly rejected the GOP call to start over, itsy-bitsy spider, little teeny tiny you cant do it. Doing this incrementally just doesnt work.
Congress Sings the Itsy Bitsy Spider
THIS WOMAN WILL GET RE-ELECTED THIS NOV.
And it won’t even be close. :)
Have a nice day.
LMAO! Best headline of the week. LOL!
This is a good sign.
She didn’t call us “tea-baggers”.
She aknowledged we exist.
She is scared to death of us, see knows what is coming in November.
