Skip to comments.Hoyer regrets calling protests 'un-American'

House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer said Thursday he and Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a mistake when they called anti-health care protests "un-American" last year.
"That was not a good phrase, not a good use of language, it was not correct," Mr. Hoyer, Maryland Democrat, said, adding that he did not see anything wrong with vigorous debating of philosophies.
In August, in the middle of a summer in which members of Congress were sometimes shouted down at town halls by constituents furious over the health care bill, Mr. Hoyer and Mrs. Pelosi wrote an op-ed article in USA Today decrying the tenor of the debate and complaining about baseless charges.

What comes out of these vermin’s mouth is what is rolling around in their empty heads.
Is he itching to start a House un-American Activities Committee? Hey, Steny, I doubt you want to remind your dwindling supporters about that one.
Let us not forget that USA Today gave Hoyer & Pelosi a nice big op-ed megaphone for their fascist rubbish.
New Rule: Never forgive never forget. It's a keystroke away until you die, and then it's a part of your obituary on Wiki...
Bye bye, Steny. You spoiled, arragant brat.
Too late for damage control.
We can see November from our house.
That is the new rallying cry. I am going to make a tee shirt.
Gee, now he regrets his poor choice of words. So if he apologizes, Americans are supposed to forgive and forget. wait a minute here, who has been calling Americans tea baggers, nazis, homophobes, unpatriotic and et al. Hey Steny, nancy reid and et al - go emasculate yourself. Pond scum has more appeal thanyou do. The federal prison system is going to pretty full when the DC Rats begin to fill it up in 2011.
And the nag he rode in on....
He must have pulled his head out of Pelosi’s backside and got a breath of fresh air. Don’t worry he will be back up there soon.Spouting the Dem garbage.
It has become my life goal to see that _itch be brought down.
TOO LITTLE TOO LATE.
Sounds like Steny is practicing obsequiousness for when he becomes Minority Leader. After all the crap that Pelosi has pulled, he’ll be lucky if Boehner tells him what day it is..
Exactly. Hey Hoyer, go f yourself up the nose with rifle-cleaning equipment.
UnAmerican in the context of the Constitution is defined by the crappy Democrat party that has been taken over by regressive "progressives", communist, stalinist, anarchist, satanist, jerks.
Distancing himself from Pelosi-hmmm.
Maybe he’s reading the handwriting on the wall and wants to get his ducks in a row to be the next MINORITY leader. So he’s throwing Pelosi under the bus.
...who, herself, claimed Tea Party members wore swastikas.
If Hoyer thinks Democrats are going to lose the House, he will position himself to claim that it was the extremism of Pelosi to blame, and make himself appear as reasonable and moderate to benefit from Pelosi’s fall from grace.
I’m just surprised he’s starting already. He must be “seeing November from his house”.
Must be up for re-election?
As Al Pacino said in Scarface, Fush Yu, Meng!
Come November, we gonna bury those cock-a-roaches!*
*At the ballot box, for you DU trolls that might be lurking.
As usual these rats like Hoyer really don’t understand.
What was more wrong, calling us a bad name or screwing up America by passing 3-4 TRILLION DOLLARS worth of bills.
Once again they really DON’T understand. I pray that vermin like Hoyer and Pelosi are shown the door. Damn Communist!
A great tagline. :) Can I use it?
Writing from behind enemy lines inside Steny Hoyer’s district, I can only express deep disappointment over the manner in which he has “grown” in office, devolving from a center-right Rat to a moonbat lefty over the past 25 years. His district was designed to assure his victory for the rest of time by including just enough of the DC suburbs to counteract the sentiments of the people occupying 90% of the district.
Yes he mis-spoke, which is Washingtonese for “Oh no, I accidentally spoke the truth about what I think.”
