Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-MD)
Jesse LaGreca
Jonathan Karl
Donna Brazile
George Will
Matthew Dowd
Peggy Noonan

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

Amanpour: clearly

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
political movement!

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
