Nancy Pelosi's Inappropriate Glory Grab at the expense of Gabrielle Giffords.


Gabrielle Giffords was one of 19 democrats who had just voted AGAINST Nancy Pelosi having been selected as minority speaker of the house for the democrats at the end of the last term. It was the largest number of no votes in the past 15 or 20 years for an incoming speaker, maybe longer.

So when Nancy Pelosi visited Gabrielle Giffords in the hospital, WITHOUT Gabrielle Gifford's permission, Pelosi was completely out of line.

If Nancy Pelosi was actually present when Giffords opened her eyes for the first time, the mention of Pelosi being in the room was one of the most conniving, contrived moments of narcissistic glory grabbing by Pelosi, a moment that should have never happened because Giffords did not give Pelosi permission to be there in the room.

As a matter of fact, aren't only family members supposed to be allowed by a critically injured victim's bedside?

This Pelosi glory grabbing incident is right out of the trashiest soap opera scenarios imaginable.
The person who gave our soap opera diva a public no confidence vote just two or three days earlier is suddenly, tragically injured, and the diva who was publicly denounced by the victim shows up in the hospital room of the victim. Are you kidding me?

And then, just as suddenly, the victim opens their eyes for the first time, and the diva scrams with the message everybody was waiting to hear, Giffords opened her eyes for the first time while she was visiting.
This is just utter crap. I seriously hope that Giffords clocks Pelosi one when she gets better. Maybe Giffords opened her eyes out of fear that Pelosi was there to finish the job.

When two opposing forces are thrown together in a situation where one is completely at the mercy of the other, that is not the time to glory grab, EVEN IF IN FACT GIFFORDS DID OPEN HER EYES FOR THE FIRST TIME.

The fact that Pelosi is not humble enough to understand that, the fact that Barack Obama then had to mention that Pelosi was there when Giffords opened her eyes, points to two either very very narcissistic personalities, or two people with something to hide.

I think you're onto something with that narcissistic personality speculation. But wouldn't be a bit surprised if BO and Nan had something to hide, as well.

I hate to think about her being the first person Ms. Gifford saw when she opened her eyes.
But, hell, just hearing Pelosi's voice would make most of us open our eyes - and guard our backs.

The progressives have really politicized this tragedy on several levels. Sad, but not surprising.

This Fox article and your rightest blabbering is telling. I would expect the Leader of the House to visit a critically injured compatriot whatever their party. These people (I'll leave my full opinion of them aside) spend much time with one another and aside from what we see on camera where they argue for our entertainment, then go golf or spa together. It's a game and they're gaming us. Glad more than anything you wrote that congresswoman Giffords is seemingly doing well in her recovery.

I don't know if you realize this article was written over 7 months ago. My point was that Pelosi took the opportunity to glory grab at state of the union address when her and Giffords were not necessarily friends and more likely adversaries.

Pelosi could have and should have found ANYONE else besides herself, Obama, or Reid to do the announcement that Giffords was showing signs of surviving her shooting ordeal.

As for the "rightest" comment, Moderate Liberals such as myself (aka strident Hillary Clinton supporters who saw the 2008 democratic nomination as an abomination to letting the voters decide without media bias), tend to be ostracized by the whack a noodle democratic progressives and neo-con republicans.
