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 ABC’s 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.

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.

If she has so much in common with the tea parties, maybe she should put a grin on their faces...by resigning.

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.

This woman ridiculed the “Tea Party” protesters by calling them “Tea Baggers” claiming that these people were in the minority and their protests were “racially motivated.” Oh how quickly we forget.

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..

It’s the failure to recognize and report crazy that’s crazy.

No, she is not crazy, just positioning her party away from the left wing loon fringe of her own party to a more centralized position.

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

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...

“Asked at her weekly press conference today if the Senate can use the reconciliation process to fix the bill to the House’s 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 can’t do it. Doing this incrementally just doesn’t work.”
