'The Plan For August Is To Have a Discussion, To Listen Carefully To What People Are Saying'

A supporter of health care reform, left, who did not want to give her name, pushes forward to rip a sign out of Kris McLay's hands outside the Stout Street Clinic visited by Nancy Pelosi.

They sure have a funny way of listening to people. Witness the goon in the picture -- yes, the one with the Obama shirt on the left that reads HOPE -- listening to a protester by trying to rip up her sign.

Frankly I'm surprised they actually published this photo as the text of the story starts off dutifully repeating Democrat propaganda. See if you can spot the codewords.
U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, visiting a Denver clinic for the homeless Thursday, insisted that Democrats are united in backing health care reform and brushed off a question of whether raucous, conservative-led protests against reform have hurt the effort.

"This is called the legislative process," she said during a brief question-and-answer period after touring the Stout Street Clinic in downtown Denver. "There are differences of opinions. This is the democratic process. . . . This is a very big initiative, to change health care in America."
Oh, so Obama's union thugs is the democratic process?

Pelosi's visit to the clinic — to see and tout the impact of stimulus funds — came at a time when the national debate over health care has escalated into a figurative shouting match.

The shouting match became a literal reality outside the clinic Thursday, as people skeptical of more government involvement in health care traded chants and slogans with others who support sweeping reforms.
Has it occurred to these twits people are shouting since nobody is listening?
Inside the clinic, Pelosi said she welcomed the time during Congress' August recess for representatives to talk with their constituents about the issue.

"The plan for August," Pelosi, D-Calif., said, "is to have a discussion, to listen carefully to what people are saying."
if she were actually listening, this "reform" would be scuttled this afternoon.

H/T John.
