Another GOP Lie: Pelosi and Unamerican

As usual the Republicans love to make up a lie and keep repeating it until lots of people believe it. "Iraq tied to 9/11," "Death Panels," "Government paying for abortions," have all been debunked over and over again. But the one continuing lie is that Pelosi called people "Un-American" because they were against health care.

This is what Pelosi actually said on August 10th in an op-ed in USA Today.

"These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades."

Ok anyone with a brain can understand it is not that they have different political views that she calls un-american it is the shouting down, the threats and the lies that prevents actual political discourse that is un-american.

Once again the right can't be honest about anything, they twist and lie and distort because when they stick to the actual truth they lose.

They attack Pelosi for two reasons. One she is an effective House Majority Leader for the Democrats, and second the good old boys just can't stand to have a woman in charge.
