    Pelosi praised the 'disruptors' back in '06

    Pelosi praised the 'disruptors' back in '06 - Glenn Thrush - POLITICO.com
    In this video making the rounds (yes, sent to the media by Republicans), Pelosi tells some anti-war protesters at an event in January 2006 that she's a "fan of disruptors." She talks back to the protesters, saying "I understand your anger." She eventually invites the anti-war folks to the front of the room to hold their protest signs.
    In 2006 she was a fan of disruptors. In 2009 she thinks they are "un-American." My, my, what a difference a little taste of power makes.

    We still have judgment here; that we but teach
    Bloody instructions, which, being taught, return
    To plague the inventor: this even-handed justice
    Commends the ingredients of our poison'd chalice
    To our own lips.

    Why does it matter who's spreading it around? She said it.

    Meh...it doesn't matter, but it makes sense to get that admission out of the way up front, for the reason you just specified.

    Of course the Republicans are going to hit back on Pelosi's politicking. It's Pelosi's fault for handing them such delightful ammunition in the first place.

    (She should do Dear Leader a favor and allow the cut under her nose to heal! )

    At least Pelosi was being civil, which is a lot more than can be said for the same disruptors she recently spoke out about, who's only objective is acting like a total ass in order to prevent facts regarding the health care bill from being heard.

    Can't see as that has any relevance to the point. But nice try.

    So polite words about the impolite disruptors who acted like total asses for the Anti-Republicans excuse her impolitic words about impolite disruptors opposing the Anti-Republicans?

    Lovely double standard that--not very persuasive, but lovely to laugh at, nonetheless.

    If you're going to spin my comment, at least do it so it makes sense.

    I don't see a double standard. I didn't hear her mention in the video, or in recent comments that people weren't free to voice their opinions.The point she made recently is that people who are disrupting these meetings aren't interested in hearing anyone's POV. Their main objective is to be as disruptive as possible so the opposing side doesn't get a chance to speak. While I don't agree with the particular wording she used to describe their behavior, I do agree with a lot of the Democratic leadership, including Pelosi, who are speaking out against it.

    What you laugh at is no concern of mine. I happen to think the joke will eventually be on you.

    Protesters of 2006 were protesting the war and the lies George Bush and Dick Cheney...people were dying for those lies. The Bush admin was force feeging America ANYTHING he desired..because he had a congress that was willing to turn it back on the will of the American people. "Distrupters" of 2006 were very different from the disrupters of today..in 2006 the people that were doing cared deeply for their country. In 2006 Bush had had 5 years to prove his worth and his degree of honesty and integrity...5 YEARS. Guess what?
    MISSION NOT ACCOMPLISHIED.

    Today the disrupters only care for themselves and the shrinking shattered Republican party. Their goals are only for that...the message is clear..America fails..they win. They started their (America Fails we win)
    on Jan 20th 2009.

    Pelosi is right their logic and reasoning is UNAMERICAN...get over it and fix it.

    Your logic fails, as usual. If this many people are protesting in an effort to build up the Republican Party, then the Republican party is not shrinking but growing (you overlooked the fact that most people in America think Dear Leader's health care reform agenda sucks).

    No, this is not about America failing...this is about making sure policies that are proven failures, agendas that are asinine, ideas that are idiotic, are stopped before they can do lasting harm to America. This is about doing the one thing absolutely necessary to America's long term success--Dear Leader's Downfall.

    Not that liberals are ever able to grasp the possibility that Dear Leader might actually be wrong, that he might actually do damage given half a chance.
