Nancy Pelosi encourages fellow Congressmen to "walk out" during the House Contempt of Congress vote. Outrageous or Justified?

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi encouraged members of her caucus to “walk out” on a floor vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress over his failure to comply with a congressional subpoena related to Operation Fast and Furious documents.

“I’m very moved by the members of the Congressional Black Caucus who say they are going to walk out on this,” Pelosi said on the House floor Thursday afternoon. “Walk out on this. Perhaps that’s the best way.”

“I commend [Michigan Democratic Rep. John] Dingell for his leadership,” Pelosi added. “So we can get to the bottom of this and we can offer some solace to [slain Border Patrol agent] Brian Terry’s family.”

Dingell, the Terry family’s lifelong congressman, lost the trust of the Terry family on Thursday morning when he refused to support the contempt of Congress charges against Holder. The family said Dingell abandoned them.

“I myself said I was coming to this floor to vote against this resolution,” Pelosi continued, before saying she has now flip-flopped and will walk out herself. “I want to join my CBC colleagues when we have the walkout after we have the debate on Mr. Dingell’s [resolution].”

“I urge my colleagues to vote ‘no’ or not vote,” Pelosi added. “It’s Eric Holder one day, you don’t know who it is the next.”

In response to Pelosi’s threats, House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa said the reason why Holder is going to be held in contempt is “he’s custodian of the records” related to Fast and Furious that he’s refused to turn over.

    It does show just how stupid the Dumbocrats are (and how certifiable Pelosi is). Walk out and make it a LANDSLIDE vote for contempt, instead of staying and voting against it. Didn't matter anyway as 17 Democrats voted for the contempt as well. Of course, it WAS a richly appropriate outcome.

    They walked out because they are chicken $#!+. They're afraid to face the issue at hand which is not race, it's contempt of court. Maybe they felt they had to because of their constituents back home. When will they ever drop this tired old prejudice crap and get back to working on the economy?

    This is what babyish, immature liberals do. If they don't like something, they whine, stomp their feet, and then pick up their marbles and go home.

    Didn't Democrats do something like this in the Wisconsin state legislature?

    You are absolutely right! A friend of mine sent me an e-mail with
    a video showing the Zer0-bama literally stomping away from the podium
    and kicking the door open to leave after being told by Eric Cantor that
    the Republicans would not support his tax hikes.

    She should be brought up on contempt charges also and anyone else stupid enough to go along with her. If they have enough to vote without them it will be a good thing though. A unanimous vote of contempt for him.

    On another page here on SH I declared that Millard Filmore was President when I was born. He was one of the original "Republicans", you know, formed the "Know Nothing Party" and opposed Lincoln throughout the Civil War. Age is not always counted in years, but in knowledge and experience. But, then, some live to be quite old, having to move from place to place occasionally so as to not attract attention.

    You obviously have no sense of humor and recognize the age of 15. I never let my grandchildren intimidate me, so you are wasting your time. I've been
    to ShowLow many times, about the time you were born, built the Indian School and related facilities there.

    I know what they publicly said, but I would sure like to know the real reason they walked out and threw one of their own under the bus. Why not stay and vote for him, support him, fight for him? They threw him under the bus.

    Because everybody would be able to see how they voted and their constituents were probably screaming for his head and they couldn't go against Obi. publicly or they'd be next under the bus.

    Not really. The resolution was destined to pass even if the NRA couldn't persuade any Democrats to vote for it. So, they called attention to bigotry of the charade and gained a
    few minutes of media attention in the process. The citation is "dead on arrival" at the Dept of Justice, as were those issued to Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove and Rice, and all those before that. This is just politics, a shameful display by those who stoop to such level of corruption, regardless of their political party.

    Clearly she thinks Eric Holder is above the law. That's not surprising for a Dem.
