Skip to comments.Huh? Nancy Pelosi Calls Arizona Shooting "Tragic Accident"
Posted on 01/14/2011 5:25:32 AM PST by marktwain
In discussing a House resolution on Thursday to condemn the shooting in Arizona, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi referred to the shooting as a "tragic accident."

Pelosi will introduce a bill calling for all tragic accidents to be Sarah Palin’s fault.
These same people refused to call 9/11 an attack on America.
It was a “tragedy” to them.
No, it was an ATROCITY: (An appalling or atrocious act, situation, or object, especially an act of unusual or illegal cruelty inflicted by an armed force on civilians or prisoners)
Nancy also thinks the attack on Pearl Harbor was a trgic accident.
Consider the source.
Nancy is a tragic accident.
Nancy Pelosi is a tragic accident!!!
You beat me to it!!!
I think nan “I am a human loser” pe-louse-i was commenting on the nobama/LIB asshat reign.
I’ll bet Pelosi doesn’t have the greatest attitude towards Gabrielle Giffords seeins how the latter voted against the former for minority leader (I love that term!); she probably had no real remorse for the shootings.
If she said it, the stupid &^%$# made a slip of the tongue, and meant to say “incident” (which is itself a rather flip way of characterizing the tragedy).
I’m sure O’Bloviator will pick this up for tonight’s Talking Points or Krauthammer or Hannity or the rest of the Obama was so eloquent crowd over at Fox.
Was anyone able to see and hear the video at the link? I would like to verify that she actually made the slip.
What a moron.
The cracks in the story start.
The dumb old twat is in Looney Tunes land.
So the crazy lib accidentally pulled the trigger 31 times.
I was just looking at the text of 0bama’s speech for another phrase he used and came across his reference to the attack as a “tragedy”.
I like your tagline.
BTW, this “incident” wasn’t a “tragedy”, nor was 9/11.
The proper word is “atrocity”.
Well, cool, since it was a tragic accident there’s no need for any stupid new laws.
Pelosi cannot even remember her own phrase book for Leftists. The Tucson event was a “man caused disaster”.
She may be right. Gabby Giffords was shot by accident. The judge may not have been.
My thoughts to a T, Pelosi was explaining the collateral damage.
Evil witch that she is.
Nancy explained that there is no evidence Jared intended to harm anyone. Jared was simply holding the gun at point-blank range as a joke----he was an innocent young man who had ever harmed anyone in his life (sob).
But his trigger finger accidentally got caught on the gun's firing mechanism, and as he struggled to get his finger out, the magazine kept firing and firing, until all those people were dead and injured.
Nancy has seen plenty of "accidental" deaths in San Franciso---so she oughta know (/snix).
Thank you for clarification regarding the term “tragedy.” This word is the most misused and abused in the English language. When using the word “tragedy,” think Hamlet. He was a basically good man with a character flaw. He debated whether or not he would avenge his father’s death. The operative word here is DEBATE. Do you think the mass murderer in Tucson was debating anything? His brain was so screwed up (most likely by extensive drug use), he was totally morally vacuous, obviously impulsive, etc., that he was incapable of debate. I believe he did what he did without ANY moral reservation.
Thus, the term “tragedy” doesn’t apply to 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, earthquakes, other mass murders, devastating blizzards, etc.
Would anyone else like to add to this discussion?
Is is an ‘accident’ that Sheriff Dipstick had numerous chances to charge him so his legal access to firearms would have been prohibited, but didn't do a damned thing?
Is is an ‘accident’ that Sheriff Dipstick had the presence of mind to blame talk radio (he didn't listen to) and Sarah Palin for his focus on Rep. Giffords?
Is it an accident that they once again turn the memorial service into a demoncrat campaign rally?
Vote them out of office! Not by accident, but by deliberate, motivated intent. We, the People, do NOT deserve their continued abuse of our nation.
Thanks...I've had it for awhile, but it doesn't seem to be doing any good. :-( Since we have US Marshals, I wonder if the folks using 'marshal law' think it's somehow related to them, and NOT the same as 'martial law', which they may think only applies to military personnel?
I wish we had a chance to have 'tag paragraphs', so I could also mention that's there's no such words as 'alot', 'alright' or 'heighth' and the word 'probably' is not spelled "prolly". And that even though spell check "corrects" definitaly to defiantly, there is a difference between 'defiantly' and 'definitely'. And-
Maybe I need a tag page!
I was trying to plot out how this cover up will develop. I suspect two things.
1. The bullet that killed the judge will not be found or the ballistics will be “inconclusive”.
2. The shooter will suffer a suicide or a complete mental - no active function - breakdown so he can’t talk. I also suspect someone blew their assignment of killing him on the spot. Most likely due to active citizen involvement or bad timing.
She said it, she said it was an accident.
Your “about” page is blank and ready for all the pedantry that you can think of!
(and I don’t use that word as an insult in this case)
I agree with both of those ideas. The coverup has begun.
Nancy is just slipping back to her core Mafia DNA.
It was an accident that the sheriff knew of his harrassment towards the congresswoman and his others troubles and cleared they way for him to buy a gun and to purchse ammo at Walmart(if you see something say something)Thier house of cards are falling down.
Yep! the crud ‘accidentally’ discharged 21 rounds from his 15 round magazine...
>> “So the crazy lib accidentally pulled the trigger 31 times.” <<
Gotta love those new Glock 31 round concealable magazines :o)
What’s the term that Napolitano used..” a man-caused natural disaster?”
Usually they are on the same page and have their canned responses down pat. All that coverin’ up must be getting to them.
They are slipping.
>> “It was an accident, you see, because you had to shoot someone to see who it was...” <<
Or, there’s no telling how many you may have to shoot to get a clear shot at the judge that you were aimed at...
>> “But his trigger finger accidentally got caught on the gun’s firing mechanism, and as he struggled to get his finger out, the magazine kept firing and firing...” <<
And even as he changed out the defective magazine for a fresh one, his finger remained jammed...
Did anyone say that he had reloaded at any time during this?
How did he shoot all those people?
Is it possible some bullets shot at one, entered another?
very odd unanswered questions
I am sure Sheriff Dumbstruck will have the answers very soon. /sarc
>> “The bullet that killed the judge will not be found...” <<
Which bullet? out of all the rounds fired?
>> “The shooter will suffer a suicide or...”
Yes, this shooter certainly will not be able to testify - EVER!
>> “very odd unanswered questions” <<
You can bet that they will remain unasked and unanswered, just like all the questions surrounding the demolition of the Murah building.
Did Nanny Pelosi point out that the collapse of the twin towers of the World Trade Center was a tragic accident?
Thank God the shooter was especially lacking knowledge and back ground and chose the 9. Had he been well schooled, he would have chosen one of the heavier rounds and the death tole would have been much higher.
The greatest atrocity here, was the MSM and the DNC using this incident as a way to score political points with the public. They were also able to launch MaObama’s new campaign slogan “Together We Thrive”. Of course, they want us to believe that Marxist/Fascism replacing Capitalism is what makes a society “thrive”.
They managed to pull it off and make Conservatives look violent and intolerant. The MSM will hammer the public with this theme from here on to the election.
It is very strange also that there seems to be no curiosity about this Federal Judge and the active cases he was ruling on or soon to be ruling on. I think I heard they brought a judge in from California to replace him. Well Golleeee!
I don’t even see much about the Judge mentioned on the right.
Maybe because we just want it all to end, but still. We are in the grips of the most corrupt and lethal administration since Clinton and people are so willing to buy what is said on TV.
I might be wrong, but I think I heard he had something added on to that gun. I could have heard wrong, I guess.
