Nancy Pelosi objects to Mitt Romney ad (Which means it's good)
Politico ^ | 09/23/2012 | SEUNG MIN KIM

Posted on 09/23/2012 11:47:28 AM PDT by nhwingut

Nancy Pelosi has a starring role in a new ad for the Romney campaign -- and the House minority leader doesn't like it at all.

The new 30-second ad, titled "Mute Button," uses an anecdote from the new Bob Woodward book "The Price of Politics" that shows Pelosi muting President Barack Obama while he was on a speaker phone during negotiations for the economic stimulus package in the early days of Obama's term.

Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid "went on with their meeting, ignoring the president, not even listening to what he had to say," the ad's narrator says. "If he cannot lead his own party, how can he lead America?"

In a statement Sunday, Pelosi called the ad "clearly ... an act of desperation" and denied that she ever muted Obama.

Very effective by grouping Reid, Pelosi, and Obama together. Shines light on the 3 most despicable Dems in one 30 second ad. Also, shows the Dem dysfunction while also making Obama look like a feckless incompetent. Great ad!

Yep, three of the most reprehensible folks in America. Reid edges the other two out for most odious, IMHO..

Mute buttons are fine but I want to see negative ads on the economy putting the onus on Obama and making him the owner of this economy. Nothing will knock down Obama’s numbers better than negative ads showing his responsibility for this terrible economy.

I object to Nancy Pelosi.

The entire UNIVERSE objects to Nancy Pelosi.

In fact, the entire universe looks at Nancy Pelosi, then looks at God and says "WTF - is this one of your sick jokes? Go ahead, tell us THIS time that we have to reach a higher level to understand. Just LOOK at that thing!"

And God replies, "Alright, alright, maybe I went a little too far..."

I don't get it. It is common courtesy to put your phone on mute during conference calls. I do it all the time at work. It cuts down on background noise, etc. It doesn't mean that you can't hear them. It just means they can't hear you.

If Obama was saying something relevant to Pelosi, she ought to have been listening, of course; but Woodward doesn't clarify that. On the other hand, if he was speaking with Harry Reid about something irrelevant to Pelosi, why shouldn't she carry on a side conversation with someone else?

And anyway, what does this have to do with Obama? At worst, it reflects badly on Pelosi, but Obama wouldn't have even known about it.

It’s time for the old, burned out 60s hippies like Pelosi to “move on” to a nursing home.

I still think an ad saying Do you Remeber back when you went to Town Hall meetings telling your Representatives you did not want Government involved in your Doctor patient relationship? You wrote them, Called Them,you marched to Washington by the 10s of thousands pleading ,dont do this,stop the Spending and the Insanity. You were then Told By Nancy Pelosi “We have to Pass it to see whats in it”,Well folks they did not Give a Damn about what you thought or said and went behind Closed doors and shoved it down all of Our throats. Well its Election time Ladies and Gentleman and Now ITS YOUR TURN to send the Only Message they cant Ignore,send them Packing!!!

On the contrary, I can think of lots to criticize about Obama. It just seems that Freepers are willing to believe almost anything negative about him. I'm just here to help you guys improve your critical thinking skills. :-)

I agree. Make him responsible for the high gas prices, the high food prices, the lack of jobs. These are things the average person can relate to. Put them on the defensive continuously by hammering away continuously. They should not have time to talk about Romney tax returns. Those are just diversions.

Please Nancy, come out and speak your mind more often. Your face and voice are equal to fingernails running down a chalkboard. No one can fire up our base like you do...

Someone with some clout needs to get their verbal cattle prod out and goose the ole heifer a few times and get her fired up. The more that quack runs her mouth the better our chances are of clean sweeping this election. I have no doubt that she helped our side win the house in 2010.

Every Add I have seen on TV is an Obama add. I have not seen any Romney adds yet.

The Obama adds are full of pure lies. You can’t even called them just deceptive anymore Since they are just so plainly lies.

That is what we are now getting here in Indiana as well. The Obama ads started last week and are on constantly. The same one over and over again that is just packed full of lies.

Pelosi muting President Barack Obama while he was on a speaker phone during negotiations for the economic stimulus package in the early days of Obama's term.

Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid "went on with their meeting, ignoring the president, not even listening to what he had to say,"

haaaa. ooops! Boot out the Three Mouseketeers: Obama, Reid, and Pelosi have to GO!!!

Which reminds me of a catchy song dedicated to getting O out:

Link to VIDEO:

GET OUT!

"GET OUT!" was created by Ryan Bomberger (see http://www.SoOutLoud.com), a civic-social activist and creative professional who describes himself as "black as Obama". Partnering with PatriotSuperPAC, "GET OUT!" exposes the President's dangerous dismantling of our country's Constitution.

Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi offend me.

Can we send them to the Big House and shut them up?
