There is a real good chance that nancy pelosi is retarded. I wouldn't put it past the people of the san francisco area to elect a person that was mentally challenged, and then keep on doing it. How fucking stupid is her comment? The Republicans are going after holder, and should be going after obama, because people DIED because of fast and furious. This isn't some game. Lives were lost. Two federal agents lost their lives, and no telling how many Mexican citizens, because of the actions of the atf and the justice department. The operation was illegal. Now someone needs to pay. It's not politics, it is the right thing to do. Of course, pelosi wouldn't know anything about that. She is usually on the opposite side of right, unless she misunderstood the question. pelosi really should have a mental evaluation, she has gone completely off the deep end. What an idiot...
A day after Nancy Pelosi accused Republicans of targeting Attorney General Eric Holder because of his department's crackdown on state voter ID laws, GOP lawmakers dismissed the claim as "hogwash" while Democrats kept their distance.
Asked about Pelosi's claim at Thursday's press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney would not say that the administration shares her theory.
"I cannot divine the motivations behind" Republicans' contempt push against Holder, Carney said, though he was plenty critical of the GOP effort.
Afterward, Republican lawmakers pounced on Pelosi's comment.
"Hogwash. That is the most ridiculous comment I've heard so far," Rep. Tim Scott, R-S.C., told Fox News on Friday.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., called the claim "mind-numbingly stupid."
"I could not believe it when I heard her saying that. Is that all you have to come back with? Is that the best you can come up with?" Gowdy told Fox News.
Both lawmakers are from South Carolina, one of several states that have tried to implement a strict law requiring photo ID in order to vote -- and have been blocked by Holder's Justice Department.
Pelosi, in a press briefing on Thursday, linked that effort to the ongoing campaign by Republicans to call a contempt-of-Congress vote against Holder for allegedly failing to cooperate in their probe of Operation Fast and Furious.
"They're going after Eric Holder because he is supporting measures to overturn these voter suppression initiatives in the states. This is no accident. It is no coincidence. It is a plan on the part of Republicans," Pelosi said.
Though the theory did not gain much traction among other Democrats, Pelosi and the rest of the caucus were uniformly critical of Republicans' actions against Holder.
