Tom Marino details Nancy Pelosi Floor spat
Politico ^ | 8/4/14 | KENDALL BREITMAN

Posted on 08/04/2014 7:45:34 AM PDT by Hotlanta Mike

Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) is calling his recent fight with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “a walk in the park” on Monday, after he says she called him a “liar” on the House floor.

“She came running over crossing the floor, which is a breach of protocol … and she came up to me wagging her finger and saying that I was a liar, a liar, and I simply said, ‘No, I do my research and I have my facts straight, perhaps you should try that,’” Marino told Fox News on Monday recalling the event.

“I’m a former prosecutor … I’ve been threatened by drug dealers and organized crime and murderers and this was a walk in the park,” Marino added.

Too bad Marino didn’t have a bucket of water handy for Pelosi.

Pelosi should be brought to the well of the House of US Representatives and publicly censured.

Pelosi's press says that " . . . Leader Pelosi accepted the Congressman’s apology.”

I'll bet Marino said something like "I'm sorry you are an ignorant boob."

Word from Marino is that he did not apologize. She lies again.

I say keep her as Dem Minority Leader for as long as possible. I cannot think of better insurance policy for the House GOP.

No, leave her in office! She’s one of the key “poster children” for the RAT party today. The longer she’s there, the crazier her pronouncements become. Maybe she can “team up” with Sheila Jackson Lee, Hank Johnson and the “Chicago Mexican” Gutierrez.

I seriously believe Nancy has stepped into the world of dementia. That’s not political, it’s just observing her behavior and statements over the past year or so. She’s ‘”losing it,” or more likely has “lost it.”

I have this crazy dream that on the next first day of Session, when every representative is in the Chamber at one time: they lock the doors and announce a surprise and mandatory piss test.

You would be able to see claw marks on the doors as they tried to flee.

If you can’t drive a truck without a drug test, you shouldn’t be able to write law.

Pelosi’s presstitutes claims he did, so I suggested the form of the apology. Anyway, I’m happy that Pennsylvania can claim Tom Marino as one of our own.

Actually pelosi doesn't use botox, she has her people pull hard on the skin at the back of her head and tie it in a knot, over the years it has finally started squeezing that little brain so hard that what little intelligence she had is rapidly being squeezed out.

People are focusing on completely the wrong thing here. The issue isn’t Pelosi’s freakout, which is just amusing, but what provoked it.

It was provoked by the Rep charging that the Dems could have passed amnesty in 2009 or 10, but chose not to. As a result of that charge Pelosi freaked out, stormed across the chamber and in a “visibly shaken” state confronted and hurled insults against the Rep who made them.

THAT says a lot about the substance and potential impact of the charge, doesn’t it?

Now, apparantly Hispanic voting is being increasingly driven by identity politics, much like it is for Blacks. With identity politics an enormous amount of power resides in the hands of so-called commnity leaders, who get to determine who identity dictates the members of their community vote for. This is why people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the NAACP have such power in and over the Black community, and why La Raza increasingly does over the Hispanic.

And, allegedly, Hispanic leaders are pissed over the unkept promises ofbthe Democrats, dating back to 2008 when they drove hispanic turnout in return for quick action on amnesty. They’ve had to sit back and watch every other Liberal special interest get what it wanted, from Blacks (stimulus $$$) to gays (repeal of Dont Ask, support for gay marriage) to rank/file Liberals (Obamacare).

I’m guessing the reason why Pelosi freaked out is because she knows that the Hispanic leadership is teetering on the brink of telling it’s members to stay home in 2014 and 2016, and sees the public statements by Republicans that the Dems have ignored and even sold out Hispanics as a clear and present danger to her Party and her power ...

Conclusion: Dems could have done amnesty and didn’t is a drum we really want and need to keep beating.

It was an awesome sight. Old coot, Pelosi, arm and waving finger out streached, waddling across the floor completely unraveled. It was beautiful and funny as heck. Oh, and the man she thought so insignificant? Well, all know him now and his future may be brighter thanks to the old battleax.

Hispanics are an increasingly powerful constituency, and given their numbers are vital to the continued dominance of Democrats at the national level.

Hispanic activist groups want amnesty because it will swell their numbers and increase their power. They were promised it in 2008, just told that they had to wait for the stimulus and Obamacare. Nearly six years later they’re still waiting. This isn’t just a sellout at this point, it’s an insult. And insults really matter in the Hispanic community.
