Default Nancy Pelosi Loses Her Cool on House Floor

Quote:
A heated debate late Friday over security at the southern U.S. border led to a rancorous confrontation on the House floor between House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Rep. Tom Marino, R-Pa.

The dustup began when Marino accused Democrats of neglecting the immigration issue when they controlled the White House and Congress in 2009 and 2010, when Pelosi was House speaker, saying that the party is now exploiting the issue for political gains.

“Under the leadership of the former speaker … when in 2009 and 2010, they had the House, the Senate and the White House, and they knew this problem existed,” Marino said. “They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it now.”

Soon after he made the remarks, Pelosi, in full view of House cameras, walked across the chamber to the GOP side of the aisle -- a rarity in the House -- to challenge Marino.

It was not clear what Pelosi said, but Marino responded immediately.

"It's true, madam leader, I did the research on it," Marino said. "You might want to try it. You might want to try it, madam leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That's one thing that you don't do."

Reps. Ted Poe, R-Texas, Joe Barton, R-Texas, and Kay Granger, R-Texas, seated behind Marino, looked stunned at Pelosi's actions. The presiding officer, Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Ill., told Marino to direct his comments through the chair and not at a fellow member.

"Well, it works both ways," says Marino.

After things seemed to calm down, Marino said, "Apparently I hit the right nerve."

Pelosi then walked briskly across the chamber, making a beeline for Marino and shaking her finger at the congressman.

Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., could be heard saying off-camera, "what is she doing?"

After he was done speaking, Pelosi then pursued Marino through the chamber, and House chamber security was seen walking through the chamber.

The House then voted 223-189 in favor of a $694 million border supplemental bill.

Marino and Pelosi apparently spoke afterwards.

Pelosi spokeswoman Evangeline George told The Hill that Pelosi "just wanted to remind the Congressman that House Democrats had the courage to pass the DREAM Act -- and have the courage to stand up for what the American people want: bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform."

She said that Pelosi accepted Marino's apology.

Marino told reporters afterward that he told Pelosi that his remarks were not meant to be personal or directed specifically toward her, The Hill reported. And a staffer said he did not apologize and does not intend to apologize.

Marino later took to Twitter to comment on the confrontation.

“Rep. Pelosi called me an 'insignificant person' on the Floor of the House. I'll ponder that for a while driving to Williamsport tonight. Of course I'll be driving myself, with no staff or security. And I'm just a country lawyer who worked in a bakery until he was 30,” he said in three separate tweets.

Once again, an elitist, arrogant liberal demands her right to put an upstart conservative nobody in his place even though he is 100% correct. And Democrats wonder why Republicans refuse to work with them.

No. We don't. The real reason is a refusal to compromise, even within your own party when the harder-right-wing position disagrees with the majority of Republicans.

But it's nice to see somebody finally admit what's going on (i.e. "... Republicans refusing to work with them (Democrats)")

The real reason repulicans won't work with Dem's it that they recognise that secretly your party is trying to trans form the USA into a socialistic country without a vote or anything by the people who live here...

You are cons and liars when you deem it nessary to get to what you want. You don't play by the rules, you look for ways to make the rules work against the people, instead of for the people.

You think that Government is the most important asset of the country. We think the people are the biggest asset.... Not the Government.

You tend to hate success, especially when you are not.... And want to tax those who have it, into oblivian..

Your pesident has changed his mind several times over several contentious issues, but in reality he was for those things before he was elected... Not till in office did the cat get out of the bag, and we found out who he really is...

Yes we don't and won't work well with the likes of the Dems. From this side of the fence, who would blame us..

Regards, Kirk

Do you already have your tin foil hat or should I make you one?


It's time people stopped using the "s" word like a boogey-man, cause it's already here. Medicare. Medicaid. Idiot individuals with signs that say "Keep your socialized medicine off my Medicaid"
Our education system.

If you guys don't want "socialism", then I recommend you do the honest thing and start tearing all that stuff down.

The American people would blame you. That's who...

As I've said in the past, the right has gotten exceedingly good at passing out the kool-aid to their own people who are eager to drink.
Not that great at convincing new members to join in...

The funny thing is why wouldn't you guys simply be honest in the past?
Why did so many of your party LIE and blame Obama when it was the Republicans who were refusing to compromise?
But oh yeah. It's the Dems who are the liars even as you give me an example of a prominent right-wing lying talking point.

Hardly.

For the last five years the GOP has been racked with dissention. A condition well noted and chuckled by the left. Hell a third of the GOP are TEA's.

Hardly lock step koolaid drinkers, even as we go into the fall elections.
