Report: Pelosi’s Office Knew Of Massa’s Questionable Conduct In October

March 16, 2010 by  

Report: Pelosi's office knew of Massa's questionable conduct in OctoberJoe Racalto, the chief of staff for former Representative Eric Massa (D-N.Y.), informed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office of his boss’s inappropriate behavior toward several unmarried male staffers in October of 2009, an unnamed source told The Washington Post last week.

Earlier in the month, Pelosi indicated that her staff had only learned in February of the concerns regarding Massa, who recently resigned from the House amid an Ethics Committee investigation into his conduct, Fox News reports.

According to the Post, Racalto called Pelosi’s director of member services because he was troubled that Massa, 50, was living in a townhouse with numerous young male staffers and had been using explicit language in front of them. Moreover, Racalto was concerned about a lunch date that the congressman—who is married with two kids—had set up with an aide in his 20s who worked in the office of Representative Barney Frank (D-Mass.).

Although the Ethics Committee has concluded its investigation into Massa’s conduct—as his resignation put him outside the reach of any punishment it could impose—House Republicans are calling for an inquiry into the manner in which Pelosi’s office handled the accusations.

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said that the committee should continue to investigate, as there are "an awful lot of questions" that have been left unanswered.

    Pelosi knew ? of course she did and she is the one who wanted to use that against him to change his No vote to a yes and she would have brushed it under the rug so fast or at least got him a get me out of jail card from the head stooge.
    Its time Pelosi had her lying stopped too? She has lied to us about the lying C.I.A who “never told Pelosi that water boarding was being used?LIAR!she knew!How can some one be trusted when they lie like Obama/Soetoro has lied about his whole life,to bring change to this country.A change that no one wants or can afford?and even the Holy C.B.O. has done the home work and guess what ?even they say he is wrong and the figures are so understated that its more than just being a little off ?man its so far off they lied? again?
    What do you expect when in 12 years of “Over spending the Republicicans has spent 1.2 trillion.While the Democrats have took that to a whole new level,in “1 year” they have spent 1.4trillion and they ain’t stopping yet?We have to stop this out of control government before it’s too late?

    • JeffH

      Always remember that Queen Pelosi doesn’t axknowledge laws unless they benefit her “transparency. She seems to think laws only apply to Republicans and the people.
      Another stare into the headlight by Pelosi.

      • JeffH

        acknowledge?

        Another one for the lexicon…”axknowledge” – (verb) to prentend that you are recognizing the facts, when you are really twisting them. Good one Jeff!

      Are they following up with the trial yet to happen with Tom Delaney?

        …and why don’t you tell us about the “corporate international socialist” again…

      • Gary

        Radio; you need to change your station:
        The answer is NO! The Washington Post is a lean to the left paper; while the Washington times lean to the right.

        If the Post is reporting something bad about your liberal party…you can bet things are bad enough they can’t avoid printing it.

    Does anybody remember the weathermen out of Chicago in the 60′s that Charles Manson took off on in California? These were two white guys out to start a black revolution in America to have the back population rule the world! I understand that these two guys are now working in Africa to continue this 60′s agenda! Remember, 70% of the countries that make up the UN are black countries without veto power! Doesn’t America have veto power? Think about it! After all this is a Marxist Agenda, isn’t it? Marx himself called it anti-messiah, didn’t he?

    • Joe H.

      Victor,
      If you are watching Beck right now, you will have your answer!!!! The pres is by passing all the rules and semi-legally too!!! Natural fact. We need to get these politicos in there fighting and I mean tooth and nail!!!!! CALL EM’ PEOPLE!!!

  • John Blair

    Pelosi knew about Massa and lied about it. She knew that the CIA was using waterboarding and lied about it. She cannot be trusted in any way shape or form or fashion. She needs to be voted out of office in November, or removed for ethics violations. Obama/Soetoro, who promised an open and transparent presidency, has lied about everything in his life. That may be why he, on the first day in office as president of the United States of America, sealed his records kindergarten through Harvard Law school until 2058; at which time he will be 98 years old. We need to impeach this socialist/communist for high crimes and misdemeanors, and we need to get all these corrupt politicians out of office, ASAP, before they take all our freedoms and ruin our economy for generations. Anyone who does not figure this out is, pardon the expression, dumber than a box of rocks. WAKE UP, America!

    • James Walker

      John, I fully agree. The trick is to know who to contact to get IMPEACHMENT proceedings started. Again, big thumbs up. It’s about time that we stop this monkey from Kenya from destroying the future of our American children. Hopefully the population that put him there will awaken and see that this sly weasel will ram his ideas down our throats regardless of what the American public truly wants and doesn’t want.

        Norm,
        Raggs is right. Libs always get a pass on everything. This is what happends when we elect scum bags instead of statesmen. Yup scum bags in both parties but far more in the Dems camp. I would be so embarassed to be a liberal,progressive,socialist whatever they are.
        Sorry to be so mean but I have had it!!!!!

    • JeffH

      …but Raggs, it was just some innocent tickling, like someone might have done with a girlfriend…where did that lead?
      Clue…not the kitchen!

  • Rebecca

    These progressives that have deceitfully sworn to uphold the Constitution should be tried for treason … I consider them domestic enemies … corrupt liars, who will stop at nothing to get their agenda passed, and who will bend all the rules to do so! When you read about our founding fathers and their ideals … truly, these people would have been tried for treason!

    • Norm

      Rebecca
      Your a little treasonous yourself. The difference between a patriot and a traitor is a very fine line.

      • JeffH

          Stephaan,
          Don’t worry about that he’s got terminal ignorance!!! He’s so ignoramt he forgets how to breath without Obummers O.K.!!!!

      • J C

        Actually the “fine line” is between patriotism and loyalism.
        Loyalists tend to adhere to top down issued dogma. Patriots remember what it was our forefathers shed their blood to give us. Monarchy or Commnism weren’t on the gift list.

        And Orwell correctly said that “In times of universal deciet, telling the truth is revolutionary”

    • blackhat

      Maybe not tried for treason, but probably considered torys.

    • momof4

      Rebecca;
      Very well said,I agree!!

    Speaker Pelosi has been the architect for disaster in the USA since 2006 when she became Speaker and had the power to legislate anything with her wheeling and dealing and underhanded tactics to achieve votes. Her staff serve her well and would probably lie to save her skin. Runninbear is exactly right about this evil women who has used Bush as a whipping boy for economic disaster in our country when it was Pelosi who had the power to control the economic pursestrings. Bush should be faulted for a myriad of other problems but not the impending financial collapse that Obama, Pelosi and Reid are orchestrating before our eyes on a daily basis with the massive spending. I believe Pelosi has failed the American people in so many ways that her impeachment should be at the top of the agenda by the poiticicians who want to support WE THE PEOPLE and from both sides of the aisle. Write your Congress person and if you don’t get an answer or you get some BS answer you will have the linch-pin you need to vote against these do nothing Congress people. Our freedoms are at stake and I’m beginning to think my 29 years in the military were in vain if we become a socialist state. Our kids are the real victims.

    • PruTexas

      Pelosi is evil.

    • Joe H.

      howe,
      Very well put!!! Unfortunately, the kids, with their public education, won’t realize it till it’s too late!!!!

  • LindyMaeUSA

    Why are we NOT surprised by any of this? Massa did what he did because HE KNEW HE COULD!

    The Washington Wolf-Pack does what they please knowing none of “their Gang” will say anything, since most of them have dirty linen in their own closet so they keep their mouth shut, in case the next spotlight is on THEM.

    And the “Ethics Committee Investigations?” Oh PLEEEZZ! That’s ALL FOR EFFECT and a useless waste of our money by the so-called “Ethics Committee” who simply “go through the motions” of trying to “punish” filthy rats like Massa so We, the People will be placated by hearing “the EC tries to do “the RIGHT thing” by investigating the crooks, thieves, liars, cheats and pedophiles!”

    And “. . . an awful lot of questions that have been left answered?” Well Friends, don’t hold your breath! (I thought most of us in here understood: “John Q. Public will NEVER hear the truth about the REAL EVIL in Washington!)

    Bravo, well done and KUDOS to you, Mr. Racalto!! “GOD BLESS and protect YOU for having the integrity and courage to blow the whistle on a demon in human clothing.

    Now if you could just get evidence on the other 534 Washington rats including the POTUS, America could “start over!!”

      Jeff, be nice, it is all the results of many nervous breakdowns, that I am sure of. Her Proctologist has yet to diagnose her verbal diarrhea as a medical disorder, although she has been diagnosed as a pathalogical liar with a mental disorder. Is this wat one ends up with when they get into major politics? Maybe there would be grant money available for the research.

        Proctologist….what a job! You start at the bottom, and you stay there!

      • Joe H.

        Pelousy has real resons to pass government health care. She is getting plastic surgery included in it just for her!!! she has even tried to get her liquor bill included in it, even her husband has trouble paying that!!!!

  • Raggs

    Pelosi wants to pass health care into law without even voting on it.
    This should give everyone an idea of the corruption.

  • http://charter howe

    I have a question for the President and the leaders of the House and Senate. When is the liberal trinity going to get serious about working toward a Jobs Bill that will revive our economy and not just more handouts to people who have been drawing unemployment for over a year and will do so for 99 weeks under the latest boondoggle. The trinity being Obama, Pelosi and Reid. They have been so busy fighting and scrapping for a health care reform bill that most Americans do not want and is a job killing, budget busting montrosity, that they have ignored the number one reason for this recession (JOBS). Who will be paying tax without a job for all these ambitious Democratic big ticket items like Health Care, Cap and Trade, Stimulus, Amnesty, and continuation of entitlements that need to be controlled to avoid the unsustainable path that all of them are headed for. Without fiscal sanity we will lose the whole enchilada because right now China owns us and our interest on the present debt will prevent any possible recovery without breaking our back. These idiots keep blaming Bush when Congress has always controlled the purse strings on the money and Pelosi and her merry band of liberals and some progressives have been the real catylist for our finacial woes. The TEA Party people may have the answer and if we ever hope to have a free and prosperous country the do nothing Congress people like Pelosi, Reid, Boxer, Waxman, Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, Feinstein Schumer, Grayson, Franken, and many others including McCain who is a Progressive liberal who jointly with Kennedy concocted an Amnesty bill that wreaks of disaster for the American people. They wanted to give amnesty to gang members if they verbally stated that they would not be gang members anymore, whats with that brilliant solution. Folks, we have ourselves to blame for the state of affairs in Congress and the cirle of corruption in the Whitehouse. We can either get proactive and do something about it at the polls or whatever it takes or sit around till they control every aspect of our lives. I refuse to live in a country without my constitutional freedoms and right now what our framers meant for us should trump all the devisivness, race, and economic issues that need work at some later date. Lets get our priorities straight and retire these bums.

  • Jeff in OH

    Ole Massa is turning out to be a top rated Democrap. If he’s for murdering babies and taking over the country he can run for Pres.

      Easy Merl, there are still good people in SF, just not a majority.
      We’ll see if they have come to their senses or not during the upcoming elections, although I won’t hold my breath.

      • blackhat

        Jeff…this is me holding my breath…….wheew…couldn’t hold it any longer!

  • Merl Elton

    Pelosi is remarkably good looking for her age. No one can look 22 forever. She looks much better than many men her age. However, she seems a Lady Macbeth type. They say Massa was forced out because he revealed he would vote no on HCR. Notice, that his problems did not start until he revealed his political position. And, if he were a liberal they would have circled the wagons around him. Ironically, Massa is one of the few in Congress with real nads. We needed his no.

    • JeffH

Now , what was she supposed to do….?… This person in question has been charged with What?..now.. Any republicans done anything unethical while being paid by The Tax payers dollar?..my personal opinion of Massa is that he’s scum….and I can find plenty of scum on both sides… You that are just pointing to progressives and democrats are ” No better” and at the very least are hypocrites …

    • Raggs

      The progressives and democrats have morphed into socialist and marxist. The hypocracy starts with those sworn to uphold the constitution and the rights of the people.

    • Raggs

      Your correct… There are many who are not fit to serve the people of this nation… However this topic is as far as I can see about Pelosi and her anger towards anyone that will not jump on the health care ballot…

    • blackhat

      You are correct. We find it amusing that when rank and file conservatives learn about such incidents from elected conservatives, we do not continue to follow them and defend them to the death. True conservatives are as outraged by the wrong actions of conservative and liberal members of congress alike. Our problem is that libs will excuse the actions of thier own, and bash conservatives. And, then use the excuse of, “Where were you when your guy…?” The truth is that true conservatives were right there calling for the appropriate action to be taken. You libs were so busy screaming that you missed it.

  • eddie47d

    Boehner as usual is just grandstanding as with all the issues. Both parties are “guilty” of sex scandals and love to play it up. Massa’s cancer has made him dilutional and he became his own worst enemy. That was pretty obvious on the Glenn Beck Show. He needs to spend time with his family and get away from the insanity of politics.

  • Roberta Smith

    You have to look at the back of Pelosi’s head and you will see the bunch they have pulled from her skull to tighten up her face. Her face is so tight it shines even with ALL THAT MAKEUP she plasters on top of it all! I believe all fo the surgery she has had has EFFECTED her BRAIN!

    Any claim the rightwingers usually make aginst the democrats and progressives you cam turn around on republicans… Bushs war was socialism .. For Iraqis… At least Obamas policys are for the American people…our infrastructure is falling apart and was totally neglected by Republicans….the restoration act puts money directly into our infrastructure… Is it socialism ? Probley … But isn’t any money invested in America socialism?..again, it probley can be defined that way… It’s what you have to do to have a civilized society…President Obama ran for president on his healthcare agenda.. Do you rightys think he should cancelhis agenda and policys because the Republicans and George Bush nearly destroyed our economy?…President Obama claims this spending will help our economy, the deficit and quality of healthcare… I believe him…and my opinion is any money spent on the American people is well spent… I don’t care what the republicans think because if they got the goverment back they would go right back to the same policys that got our country where it is today…the democrats had congress in 2006?… Sure , but they got the goverment back because the republicans failed…name 1 bill the 2006 democrat dominated congress passed that did this to our economy.. The fact is the Republicans called the 2006 democrat congress ” The Do Nothing Congress” because they passed the” least ” number of bill of any congress in the previous 20 years…. With president Bush having Veto power over anything democrats wanted to pass…. You rightys trying to blame the democrats in 2006 don’t have any supporting facts…

      Let’s see…oman is setting policies “for” the American people. We just found out that the jobless rate will remain around 9-10% for at least three years. Well, those policies didn’t work for Americans. Next, he has borrowed so much from China that they are threatening our national security. That didn’t work so well. How about the war on terror? (You libs hate this) I would actually give him a passing grade. Good moves in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Buuut, there is our treatment of Isreal. Anyone think we are safer now the Iran is feeling emboldened again? Of course, we are closer to our traditional allies, aren’t we? No, we have treated them poorly of late, and our only real friend seems to be Hugo Chavez. Let see, we are no longer interested in space. We decided that American soldiers in Haiti cannot fly the American flag. And, I am pretty sure that we will all see massive tax increases next year that will again stunt any efforts at growth. Speaking of growth, since the OHB has been the focus for a year most small to large businesses have been afraid to invest in themselves (which has been a reason for such a dismal rate for unemployment) many businesses are again relocating overseas. So, I guess he really is for the “Amerikan” people, huh?

  • Robin from Arcadia, IN

    Strange that Massa has been investigated by an ethics committee and Pelosi and Barney Frank haven’t? What’s wrong with this picture? It is obvious that all this came about because they didn’t think they would get his vote on the ludicrous health care bill. And it makes them look like they actually have ethics, which I honestly believe they don’t!

    • s c

      When it comes to serious investigations, you can probably forget about Queen Nancy, Bawney Fwank and ‘Don’t you know how special I am?’ Rangel. You see, when the “right” people are in charge of the investigation process, life is ‘beautiful.’
      And if push ever comes to shove, Obummer’s A G [Holder] will keep a lid on EVERYTHING. NEVER forget that Holder helped Bubba Clinton release a big bunch of Puerto Rican TERRORISTS.
      Ah, the fresh air of TRUE SOCIAL JUSTICE and ETHICS – ULTRALIBERAL PROGRESSIVE STYLE!
      Kinda makes you want to puke, doesn’t it?

    As usual , all you can do is throw personal attacks at Pelosi….Barbara hopes Nancy Pelosi has a heart attack… I bet Barbara will claim that she’s a Christian…..

    • JeffH

      A l, I agree with only one thing you said, it isn’t right to wish death on anyone. Now Pelosi has the recolver loaded with one bullet and has been playing Russian Roulette. In that scenario, she lost!

    • Joe H.

      Lib,

      PARDON ME? Who has the biggest government, has spent the most $$ in the first year, and has appointed the most commie czars?? Gawd man, get a clue before your brain explodes from the false facts overload!!

    • JC

      The American government, left and right, has been on a socialist bend for many decades. His Hopiness is the pinnacle and a turning point in American history. The best thing I can say about him is that he is galvanizing Americans to action and a re-taking of the Republic.

  • American liberal

    You Rightys are only using the term Socialist because Glen Beck , Hannity and Fox News tell you to..

    • s c

      AmLib, I do so hate to dash the accuracy of your ‘knowledge,’ but I don’t get Beck, Hannity or Fox News out here in the boonies.
      I guess that makes you a devolved Darwinian or an apostle of saul alinsky, in addition to being a predictable, ultraliberal progressive. You read too many newspapers, Einstein.

    • blackhat

      Seig Heil! Herr Limbaugh says “use word socialist, it be a good word to use!” Yer volt, mein herr.

      Do you feel better now, Lib?

    • JC

      Or maybe we know what socialism is. Maybe we know how unAmerican it is. Maybe we understand that it doesn’t work. Maybe it scares you that we know this because it threatens your parasitic way of life…

    • momof4

      Lib,
      Look up the word Socialist or Marxist in the dictionary.
      It fits Obama to a tee. I know it’s hard when you find out your hero isn’t a hero after all. WAAWAAAWAAAA

  • eddie47d

    Mark; So Democrates are Commies? That must make Republicans Imperial Fascists! You sure love the name calling. Some of your choice of words will bring America down faster than anything that Pelosi has to say. So keep on defeating youselves!

      eddie47dcup,
      Not quite, we don’t control the house or the presidency!!! We don’t by-pass constitutional law!!! We don’t shove bills down other peoples throats whether they want it or not!!! We don’t have the power she has right now, but wait till November!!!!!

    • momof4

      eddie47d,
      Oh please, give me a break.

            He wears a D cup for a dunce cap? Welllllll, that explains it.

  • Warrior

    It has become apparent to me that Nancy trades pants suits with Hillary. Why shouldn’t Massa be allowed to trade page boys with Bawney? Anyway, the jobs bill is in the healthcare bill along with an edumacation bill. As soon as these fine amerikans can get this passed there will be union jobs for everyone in healthcare and edumacation. Only then can we solve the trade deficit because health care and edumacation will be our chief export. AND enough of these gov jobs will be created to even help out the illegals when they become err legal?

    • Raggs

      Oh its obamamucation……

  • Raggs

    My impersonantion of Robert Gibbs..

    UH Uh uh UH uH and Uh uh if UH uH Uh I Uh uH uH UH only had Uh UH Uh UH a brain Uh uH UH….

      As seen from the wizard of snoz..

      Raggs, did you mean Gibbs or Obummer? It’s so hard for me to tell the difference between those two consummate, useful idiots.

      • JeffH

        uhhh mmm uuuhhh ohhh mmm uhhh

    American Liberal and eddie47d: Brace yourself for the big slam in November and Ms. Pelosi losing the power to do anything.

    • momof4

      Bud,
      Thanks, I needed that!!!!

  • s c

    The moral of the story is simple. Pelosi knew. Pelosi knew that others knew. In order for elected weasels to survive, they occasionally have to declare one of their own ‘expendable.’ Enter Massa. Exit Massa.
    Now, for those ultraliberal progressives who claim to have any credibility or character at all, this is your time to speak up. I doubt if you will, because you can’t admit that you ever made a mistake [and our 'leaders' NEVER make mistakes!].
    Isn’t it uncomfortable, knowing that queen nancy’s days and the days of her useful idiots friends are truly NUMBERED?
    You’ve had your fun, losers. You tried to destroy America, and you did it in the name of making America “better.” Away with you. Disappear. And never trouble America again!

    • Raggs

      Very good!!!

      And a word of note…
      And my prior comment was to all marxist including but not limited to odumbo.

  • john

    You know that there were a few before Pelosi, Reid and Franks that lied to congressional hearings, overseers. They were sent to Jail, FOR LYING! And yet we still have thses three lying to the PUBLIC and congress and are laughing all the way home.
    They are not above the law and should be prosicuted to the fullest and then thrown away the key, after they are locked up!

    • Raggs

      lock-um-up?… I have a better idea.

  • Raggs

    Pelosi the obamabagger… It really shows in her face.

  • Joe H.

    BTW, did anybody see anything about the honk for no gathering in D.C. today????

    • Raggs

      No but I would expect that from the obamabagger’s and small acorn’s. The small acorns being a growth from peanut’s that have morphed into a marxist plague.

      • Joe H.

        Raggs,
        I’m serious. There was supposed to be a ralley in D.C. where the drivers against the health care bill were supposed to honk their horns. I heard there was supposed to be quite a few there!! Also a code red meeting on the steps of the WH!!!!

    An Urgent Message from Dick Morris

    THE PERILS OF PELOSI

    During World War II, Winston Churchill warned of the danger of fighting a land war against Japan in Asia. “It is like going into the water to fight the shark,” he said.

    That’s about what it is like fighting the Speaker in the House of Representatives.

    Pelosi controls every aspect of a House member’s career. She can turn on and off the spigot of money to his campaign, move the member’s office to the broom closet in the basement, cut back on his staff and travel allowances, move him to the DC and Post Office Committees and bring mayhem to his official life.

    But beyond her power lies the penalty of exile and ostracism. The House is very much a fraternity/sorority of members and group-think is very much in vogue. A Senator who had served in the House once told me the difference. “The House is like a college campus. You have your friends and you go on raids against the opposition, always in groups, in packs. In the Senate, it’s like dealing with foreign heads of state. You talk to the Senators, they nod and then they go back and meet with their staffs before they’ll give you an answer.”

    Ostracism in such an environment is a potent price to pay for independence.

    As she desperately pushes for Obama’s health care bill, that is what we are up against.

    But the Speaker can be beaten. And once she is, she has functionally lost control of her chamber. She won’t recover.

    The key is to use our only weapon: public opinion.

    That is why we need your donations to battle Pelosi for every vote.

    Each day, the League of American Voters is monitoring the whip counts from the GOP and from the Hill Magazine and they are adjusting the tone, content, focus, targets and intensity of their ads to take account of the most subtle changes in the House.

    This is truly a fight of the insider vs. the outside.

    Please give us the tools we need to wage this fight in this crucial last week. Please contribute to the League of American Voters.

    Dick Morris

    Just as Speaker Pelosi did not reveal her knowledge of unethical
    conduct, she is also rushing to cram obamacare through before Americans discover this bill shamefully obliterates their rights and
    hideously assumes the right to micromanage their lives, leaving no
    part of the human to which this government does not have total access.
    Mystery man in the white house has a partner in his crime that this bill is. If this bill is not defeated, it will be a huge defeat for the country of America. The stupidity of the audience goading a representative reveals their glaring inability to discern leader from
    incompetent tyrant. We can look forward to Ms Perlosi and Mr. Reid skydiving in November, but it may be too late for the rest of us.

      Over my dead body will this government control me…

    More from the completely unethical Pelosi -

    “House may try to pass Senate health-care bill without voting on it”

    By Lori Montgomery and Paul Kane
    Washington Post Staff Writers
    Tuesday, March 16, 2010; A01

    After laying the groundwork for a decisive vote this week on the Senate’s health-care bill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Monday that she might attempt to pass the measure without having members vote on it.
    Instead, Pelosi (D-Calif.) would rely on a procedural sleight of hand: The House would vote on a more popular package of fixes to the Senate bill; under the House rule for that vote, passage would signify that lawmakers “deem” the health-care bill to be passed.
    The tactic — known as a “self-executing rule” or a “deem and pass” — has been commonly used, although never to pass legislation as momentous as the $875 billion health-care bill. It is one of three options that Pelosi said she is considering for a late-week House vote, but she added that she prefers it because it would politically protect lawmakers who are reluctant to publicly support the measure.
    “It’s more insider and process-oriented than most people want to know,” the speaker said in a roundtable discussion with bloggers Monday. “But I like it,” she said, “because people don’t have to vote on the Senate bill.”

      J C,
      Beck talked about it on his show today also. That’s what I was talking about earlier when I said somewhat legal!!! God help us, We need it!!!

      • JC

        Joe, it is symptomatic of open dictatorship.

  • ABinGA

    Pretty chicken _ _ _ _ if you ask me.

  • ABinGA

    An article pertaining to this was also in Newsmax today.

  • Keith H

    Nancy Pelosi is just part of the corrupted system that lies to us when it suits their best interest,and plays dumb when it suits their best interest,and passes useless healthcare bills when it suits their political interest, thats why she said let’s pass the healthcare bill so we can find out what’s in it.

  • Debbie

    Does Pelosi or Obama realize their forcing socialism on all their future offspring as well as everyone elses? Are they getting paid that much to sell their souls and their childrens souls?

    • JeffH

      Debbie, their only goal is to bring a free America to it’s knees and force all of us into “government dependancy” ie socialism. There are bigger outside fish than Obama and Pelosi hiding in the wings pulling the strings. Obama and Pelosi are just delivering the “goods” for them.

  • American liberal

    If you’re watching Glen Beck you have the IQ of a carrott…

    • JeffH

      OK Rachael, we have come to realize that Glen Beck and a carrot has an IQ higher than any American Liberal.

    • http://www.secondamendmentfoundation.com Dartanian

      Isn’t “American liberal” an oxymoron?

      I would agree with “liberal socialist”, “nazi liberal”, nazi socialist, or Anti-American liberal”, but “American liberal”, just doesn’t wash.
      I reserve the word American for Patriots!

  • JPW-

    An oxymoron is an individual that abuses oxycontin and the final results are a person that jumps up and and down flailng their arms because of extensive brain loss.Looked up the term oxymoron in wikipedia and Rush Limbaugh’s name came up.
