Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-MD)
Amanpour: wow those kids at
Occupy Wall Street appear not to like
corporate greed and unemployment
Reporter: these sleepy peaceful
protestors are a grave threat
Karl: this looks likes a growing
national protest movement but the
GOP says it’s a dangerous mob
Cain: if you don’t have a job blame yourself!
Karl: Herman Cain will probably be
the next President
Obama: I’m the underdog!
Hank Williams Jr: Just like Hitler!
Amanpour: George Obama said some Americans
aren’t better off than they were four years ago
Will: not true - Republicans are
Dowd: Obama is beleaguered
Noonan: Obama is talking into a void
Amanpour: it’s like having a conversation with you
Brazile: he’s no underdog dammit
Dowd: if the GOP blocks Obama’s jobs bill
the public will blame Obama
Brazile: so you say white man
Amanpour: Why won’t Blue Dog Senate
Democrats pass Obama’s Jobs bill?
Pelosi: because they’re dipshits Christiane
Amanpour: so what’s the answer?
Pelosi: go directly to the people
Amanpour: do you like the new combative Obama?
Pelosi: he’s fighting - I love it!
Amanpour: is it enough?
Pelosi: you gotta go out there and talk
about kitchen table concerns - it’s a fight!
Amanpour: ok so you’re fighting
Pelosi: we’ll let the American people decide!
Amanpour: People disapprove of Congress
Pelosi: well so do I!
Amanpour: what do you think of
Occupy Wall Street?
Pelosi: they’re right - we need change!
Amanpour: Paul Ryan says they are a mob
and Americans should never be pitted against
each other except for gays muslims women and not-rich people
Pelosi: he’s and idiot and hypocrite
Amanpour: I see
Pelosi: Hell even Ronald Reagan talked about income and wealth inequality
Amanpour: yeah but he was a well-known socialist
[ break ]
Amanpour: Holy crap Occupy Wall Street is taking over America!
Amanpour: is this like the Tea Party?
Will: the Tea Party is the bourgeoisie
Amanpour: yes I believe that’s their slogan
Will: I love Occupy Wall Street
Amanpour: why is that?
Will: those dirty hippies are going to give
the GOP the White House for 20 years
Braxile: that’s crazy - they have legitimate complaints and everyone knows it!
Noonan: Wall Street tanked America and paid no price so they may have a point
Amanpour: interesting Peggy
Noonan: but the Tea Party were mature -
not like these childish bongo drummers
Dowd: Wall Street is not the GOP base!
Amanpour: it’s not?
Dowd: no it’s poor people outraged about
high taxes on the rich
LaGreca: Politicians and the media represent
the wealthiest 1%
Amanpour: not fair - we sometimes have
non-billionaires on the show
LaGreca: well ok then
Amanpour: what will it take for us to go
back to ignoring you
LaGreca: Social Justice
Amanpour: oh dear
Will: Jesse if the government is corrupt
shouldn’t we just get rid of all government?
LaGreca: no because we live in a democracy
Amanpour: will this movement grow?
LaGreca: yes because it’s about giving
people a voice
Brazile: this is a real legitimate
Amanpour: people are selling their
blood just to survive
Noonan: yes - so is Occupy Wall Street hurt
poor people by blocking the Brooklyn Bridge
or will they take a shower and get stuff done??
Amanpour: Yes please Jesse tell us all your plan
for rescuing America’s economy
LaGreca: I think it’s funny that people now
want Occupy Wall Street to solve all
of America’s problems
Amanpour: well you certainly don’t expect
us to do it do you?
LaGreca: No I don't
Amanpour: Thanks for coming everyone
