Pelosi Gets Choked Up Over Political "Violence" Surrounding Health Care; GOP: She is "likening genuine opposition to assassination" (Video)

“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.”
--Speaker Pelosi

"The Speaker is now likening genuine opposition to assassination. Such insulting rhetoric not only undermines the credibility of her office, but it underscores the desperate attempt by her party to divert attention away from a failing agenda. During one of the most important policy debates of our time, the American people have been completely abandoned by those elected representatives under her control. Voters are justifiably frustrated with Washington, and the Speaker's verbal assault on voters accomplishes nothing other than furthering her reputation for being wildly out of touch with the American people."
--Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX), chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee.

Speaker Pelosi choked up answering a question on the current political climate and potential violence over the current healthcare debate. She recalled the hostile climate of 1970's San Francisco, which resulted in two political assassinations.

She's insane!
