Pelosi Gets Boo-ed!

Pelosi's defense of NSA surveillance draws boos

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has disappointed some of her liberal base with her defense of the Obama administration's classified surveillance of U.S. residents' phone and Internet records.

Some of the activists attending the annual Netroots Nation political conference Saturday booed and interrupted the San Francisco Democrat when she commented on the surveillance programs carried out by the National Security Agency and revealed by a former contractor, Edward Snowden, The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The boos came when Pelosi said that Snowden had violated the law and that the government needed to strike a balance between security and privacy.

As she was attempting to argue that Obama's approach to citizen surveillance was an improvement over the policies under President George W. Bush, an activist, identified by the Mercury News as Mac Perkel of Gilroy, stood up and tried loudly to question her, prompting security guards to escort him out of the convention hall.

"Leave him alone!" audience members shouted. Others yelled "Secrets and lies!," ''No secret courts!" and "Protect the First Amendment!," according to the Mercury News.

Perkel told the newspaper that he thinks Pelosi does not fully understand what the NSA is up to.

Several others in the audience walked out in support of Perkel.

"We're listening to our progressive leaders who are supposed to be on our side of the team saying it's OK for us to get targeted" for online surveillance, said Jana Thrift of Eugene, Ore. "It's crazy. I don't know who Nancy Pelosi really is."

Netroots Nation is an organizing and training convention for progressive political leaders. Pelosi was Saturday's keynote speaker at the event, which opened Thursday at the San Jose Convention Center and was scheduled to conclude Sunday.

Her remarks criticizing the Republican majority in the House and encouraging powerful women brought applause, cheers and laughs.

Everyone is a terrorist nowdays. Sounds more and more like we even have terrorists in our own government, if you look at the Hastings story and the Gary Webb Story and the ....

We even have US Generals who behave like terrorissts. And the USA PAYS al Qaeda to be terrorists when they need to. Al Aqeda these days is more and more like Blackwater,/XE/whateverthehadestheirnameisnow

Nancy needs to be in those "Plastic surgery gone wrong!" stories. What a monstrosity. Why do democrat women have to be so freakishly ugly? Limbaugh called it with Undeniable truth #24 "Feminism was established as to allow unattractive women easier access

to the mainstream of society." That is Nancy all over. Yeeecchh

ABSOLUTELY she deserves it.

She was the traitor who refused to let Kucinich and others proceed with impeachment against Bush for his obvious felonies.

She ain't as ugly as Madeline Albright, but she's ugly, way beyond skin deep. :td:

I think we all know how "stupid" these people truly are! It's courtesy of our US Government, aren't we all so proud?... *cough cough* Ummmmmmmmm. NO!!!!?!?!?!?!??!

These are the types of people that make me grateful that B*tch-slapping is considered an act of assault! I'd probably be in jail right now! Lol

But I'll just bite my tongue and keep my "thoughts" to myself. :innocent:

...Even if my phone calls aren't a 2-way conversation anymore. <_<
