‘You suck!’: Netroots crowd boos Nancy Pelosi for calling Edward Snowden a criminal

Rep. Nancy Pelosi has a special talent for angering crowds wherever she goes; she’s a liberal, pro-choice feminist who’s under perpetual assault from Code Pink, for example. So it’s not surprising that Pelosi managed to elicit boos from the crowd of progressive bloggers at this weekend’s Netroots Nation conference. In a speech today she managed to rile the audience by calling confessed NSA leaker Edward Snowden a criminal rather than a civil rights hero, and Politico reports that at least one heckler was led out of the room.

Wow, everyone? In Washington and in the White House, Pelosi has a lot of company on the Left calling for Snowden to face charges. Someone has to be willing to agree with her.

Pelosi did find some common ground with the Netroots when she insisted that if nothing else, President Obama isn’t Bush, so lighten up on the guy.

    Not nice to boo those struggling with issues of the cabeza.

    • AlmaAlma

      Pobre Nancy

    • BeautifulAmerica

      Issues in the cabeza should disqualify her for office.

  • trixiewoobeans

    Nyuk nyuk nyuk. She thought it was going to be a cakewalk, and got a pie in the face instead. Awesome.

    Just imagine if this were happening under a Republican Adm.
    Her hypocrisy is shameful.

  • Michelle

    They didn’t treat Bush that way? Is she suffering from dementia, selective memory or delusions? All of the above. And go home Nancy, you’re drunk.

    • lainer51

      she is right, they didn’t treat Bush that way… they treated him 1000 x worse.
      Guess the botox is squeezing her brain cells…

        Has anyone studied the effect of repeated Botox on neuronal activity?

    • Joe W.

      They STILL treat Bush worse than Barky.

  • digitalPimple

    Obama is not Bush. He’s Dick Cheney only worse.

    • KansasGirl

      Wrong, he’s Roosevelt, only worse.

    • ked5

      he’s carter. on steroids. that FISA court that has been ‘granting’ all the survelliance powers was started by jimmah.

    • j p

      He’s Barry Hussein only worse.

  • Gallatin

    After boos Pelosi says, “I look forward to working with all of you” on
    this issue.

    Just like she worked with you little people on healthcare.

    • trixiewoobeans

      Worked us over is more like it.

    Nancy is a WDC ideology. It would flat out never occur to Nancy Pelosi that any one could possibly not share her hubris. Liberals are always right because they can never be wrong. When liberal policies fail (Porkulus) it is because they were not liberal enough. It’s the magic circle of liberalism, it is so because I want it really bad [sic] to be so. I want social justice, I want income equality, I want purse justice, I want vacation justice, I want whatever the hell I want and I will whine and plague you until I the hell get it.
    The End

      A long way to get to the point – but nice.

        I, perpetually, battle logorrhea.
        The End, I promise.

        • LisaG

          You are not alone in your struggle. And I wholeheartedly agree with your “liberals are always right because…” assessment. Every copious bit.

    • BeautifulAmerica

      Why do we tolerate it…and her?

    • ked5

      sounds like a bratty toddler.

    They would have cheered had Snowden not criticized Dick Cheney.

    To liberals like Pelosi privacy only applies to abortion. For everything else, the more intrusive the better.

    • Stephen L. Hall

      Come to think of it, I’m not sure that with Obamacare privacy actually even applies to abortion. The very reason for Roe v. Wade was that decisions between a doctor and their patient (abortion) were private, but Obamacare requires digitized transmittable medical records, ergo no privacy. (Especially in light of NSA wiretapping.) Since Obamacare was upheld, does this mean that Roe v. Wade is overturned???

  • Jay Stevens

    Off topic, but with that look of perpetual startlement, is it me or does she look like someone just goosed her?

    • trixiewoobeans

      Plastic surgery run amok.

    Still waiting for someone to call her on the bullshit she pulled taking impeachment of Bush off the table!!!

    • Elaine

      HAHA Keep waiting. Don’t you realize by now that most Democrats LIE? Get with it. Don’t believe a word they say. They’re all about controlling the money and the power. PERIOD.

      • http://southernnevadadfa.org/?page_id=51 TurboKitty

        It’s not Democrats or Republicans … IT’S ALL OF THEM … any one who is corporate funded is going to lie …

  • OldmanRick

    Pelosi booed by other libs, priceless.

    • Kimihiro Watanuki

      It put a smile on my face today.

    My ideas are so different from the Democrats and Republicans that it’s laughable, but also sad to lose a once great country to the whims of scoundrels.

  • Deb Scott

    Pelosi thinks the Dems were nice to Bush? #selectivememory

    • TexSizzle

      She means they didn’t treat President Bush as kindly as we’re treating mr. obama.

  • LouAnnWatson

    problem is, the people booing her are doing it because they are more progressive than her

    • Kimihiro Watanuki

      I know, that is the problem. Hopefully, they spiked the water with thorazine.

  • LouAnnWatson

    boo early and boo often

  • DrSamHerman

    “We didn’t treat Bush that way”. No, Nancy, you and your ilk treated him much worse. Good to see that you are getting a bitter, nauseuous taste of your own medicine. Perhaps now the left will be the same to Obama as they did to Bush. Hell, even 10% of what they did to Bush would be worse than anything Odimbulb has ever experienced.

  • TonyMitch

    What nancy and the libs are doing to this country is criminal.

  • Sua Sponte

    Doesn’t change anything…The LIV’s and progs will continue to support her…
