    Pelosi delivers speech over screams of health-care activists

    Raucous demonstrators greeted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) at a gathering of progressive activists in Washington on Tuesday morning, forcing her to yell her 28-minute policy speech over their loud and uninterrupted protests.

    What's this? Not the TEA Party? Will Gran Nan deliver another tear filled speech on how she has seen this before?


    It was a bizarre scene at the America's Future Now conference, as protesters screamed just a few feet away from the speaker's stage. At first, Pelosi paused and appeared rattled, apparently trying to discern what the protesters were chanting. But minutes later, surrounded on stage by her security detail, Pelosi pressed ahead.

    "I'm not going to leave," Pelosi said to the audience of several hundred leaders of the progressive movement. "I'm going to deliver my speech. . . . I am going to make my speech over your voices."
    So let me get this straight, demo's have played group politic now for decades, and they are in power, not delivering what they promised to gain that power, and even at a 'progressive' conference they are being heckled now....? Oh this is too good.


    Many of the protesters were in wheelchairs or otherwise disabled, and they held up banners. One protester shouted at Pelosi: "We supported Obama. We supported you. We supported the campaign . . . But we don't want to be taken from our homes."

    Oh my...."We voted for you and you lied".......


    When the protests began, Pelosi's security offered to remove the demonstrators, but she declined because she believes in free speech, said two conference organizers who were with Pelosi on stage. Her security then advised her to stop speaking and leave the venue, the organizers said, but Pelosi refused, saying she was determined to finish the speech she came to deliver.

    I just love how the WaPo leaves out that the protestors were throwing things at the stage. Typical I guess. Unless ofcourse it were protestors from the right, then the story would have been how menacing they were and how dangerous they are.....


    Your thoughts?

    Funny, I didn't see anything in the bill about taking people from their homes...

    In any case, yes, many progressives are actually pissed about this bill too. It's a Republican bill, recycled from the Clinton administration and it's not real reform.

    Re: Pelosi delivers speech over screams of health-care activists

    My thought is that this proves that Pelosi is a ****up. She has been screwing up not only everything in Congress, but her attempt to legislate the left's agenda. Why they haven't voted her ass out before now is astounding.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    We're just kindof annoyed that this country has only two viable parties: Center-Right and Extreme Right.

    Well if that was the case the Clinton/Obama years would not exist.

    The problem is none of the party's represent the people anymore.

    This does not excuse the fact both sides are hypocrites and liars.

    Much like you and your center-right etc foolishness. Perfect example.

    I think you miss Deuce's point, that is unless you actually think that Clinton and Obama are left of center. In that case, there's probably no way of getting through to you, as you aren't being realistic.

    Re: Pelosi delivers speech over screams of health-care activists

    Ummm....Breaking News. Unless your own attempts to stifle anything that casts a dower light on the utter ineptness of the demo's to actually govern when they have the power, is now a criteria for determining what is news.

    Hopefully in this day and age of media propaganda that isn't the case.
