Pelosi, House Dem Women Jeer At Reporterís Question About Age (VIDEO)

Source: TPM



DAVID TAINTOR 11:12 AM EST, WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 14, 2012

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her female Democratic colleagues jeered at NBC News reporter Luke Russert's question about the age of House Democratic leaders. Russert asked if Pelosi's plans to stay on as House minority leader prevented younger Democrats from moving into leadership positions.

"Let's, for a moment, honor it as a legitimate question, although it's quite offensive, but you don't realize that, I guess," Pelosi said. She added that, throughout her time in congressional leadership, she has been focused on electing younger members to the House.

Watch the exchange:

There's been a lot of talk about leadership fights in the senate.

Even Pelosi had a leadership challenge at the beginning of the last term and everyone knows that Hoyer wants her job. The problem is the way the question was asked. Framing it as an age thing is an issue.

66. I don't see the position of minority leader (or House Speaker) as something...

. . . that should be treated like that of a middle school hall monitor, where you want to make sure everybody gets a "turn." Unless it is shown that Ms. Pelosi has handled the position badly, I see no reason to change leadership merely for the sake of changing it. I have not always agreed with Pelosi (particularly when she pronounced impeachment of Bush to be "off the table"), but I will give her credit for this much: she has delivered her caucus every time she has been asked to do so.

79. I'm in complete agreement, especially with your first two sentences.

Further, it's not like others in the senate aren't also accruing experience both as senators and in related leadership positions, such as chairs of committees. Pelosi herself generally knew how to do her work before she got there. If some sort of younger training is needed, it should happen before someone gets the job, not by putting them in the role before they're ready for it or instead of someone who is more ready for it.

18. Nancy doesn't need your coaching about her political network, Luke. Age Discrimination memes are in

play.

So petty, pathetic, divisive, resentful, entitled, angry does it, huh, from a guy whose is working because of his crony connections, while he waits for his next trust fund check.

Maybe some of those younger folks you're alluding to Luke, should do what so many from your side of things have been yelling about the rest of us doing for a very long time. Get out there and earn it.

I know lots of young Americans who are.

Wondering here if little Luke Russert has one fucking clue, not only about age discrimination, but about what it means to be long-term unemployed, perhaps even blackballed, in this country and here he is begging favors for god knows whom, who if we take them to be of little lukey boy's cohort, could be a bunch of mediocreats, who in their recent career track may have been known to support privatized Social Security and union-busting and the whole phony-Libertarian bag on the principle that it's "better" for people to do it without help from government, so, Little Luke don't you think that'd include nepotism and cronyism for elitist mediocracies who are hostile to older generations.

A question for Mr. Russert: "Some of your NBC colleagues privately say that your decision to exploit nepotism and legacy to report for NBC prohibits the network from having far better qualified & experienced reporting and hurts the profession of journalism and the network in the long term."

I haven't noticed similar questions to men in leadership positions.

For what it's worth, in 2008 the GOP's nominee for president was over 70, and this year they chose a man in his 60s, and of course Paul Ryan (40s) was regarded as a youngster by media standards.

That said, I don't care for the open nastiness towards Luke Russert. Pelosi schooled him here, and maybe it'll take.

63. That the Once and Future Speaker didn't absolutely TEAR HIS HEAD OFF...

speaks to how good at her job she actually is.

And she just about did. Watch it again, and watch her EYES. Theres a moment where she ALMOST goes there.

70. Sexist/Agist asshole!!! Down with Luke Russert!! I want a public apology.

He would never ask the other men this. Ugh...I loved how Nancy handled...like she was reprimanding a stupid child.

74. Talk about "entitlements"!

What a nasty and disrespectful question to ask, and it shows a complete lack of understanding of the seniority system in Congress. I don't see the question as legitimate in any way.

"Lukey, dear, let me explain something to you about earning your way to a position of respect and authority..."

75. What a dumb question!

Forget the discrimination aspects of it. WTF does the Democratic leadership's age have to do with anything coming up on the docket!?! I sent a complaint to NBC today on this very topic. All they do now is look for headlines...real journalism is dead there! Their journalists are intellectually incapable of asking serious questions of anyone!

77. How come they never ask these questions of the men?

It isn't just age discrimination, it is sex discrimination as well!!!

78. A legacy "journalist".

I once heard him refer to the Mariana Islands as the Marinara Islands.

83. She's not not even among the top 100 eldest in the house

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_the_oldest_living_members_of_the_United_States_House_of_Representatives

What an inane question.

edit - woops that list includes retired members. There are actually only 37 older people in the house. Still she is no where near the top. Inane in any case!
