Pelosi Tears Up

Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck will never let this die: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi teared up at a press conference on Thursday as she said that the tone of the national debate reminds her of the political violence of San Francisco in the 1970s. When asked if she thought the debate over the federal government could lead to violence, Pelosi said, “I think we all have to take responsibility for our actions and our words. We are a free country and this balance between freedom and safety is one that we have to carefully balance. … I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw… I saw this myself in the late '70s in San Francisco. This kind of rhetoric is just, is really frightening and it created a climate in which we, violence took place and… I wish that we would all, again, curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements that are made.”
