men ask nepotism questions regarding Luke Russert (in response to his ageist question to Pelosi)

In reaction to today’s presser, Twitter lit up with offended women, among them noted Democratic Strategist and pundit Hilary Rosen. “Note to Luke Russert: Mitch McConnell is 70, Harry Reid is 73. Oh and Bob Schieffer is 75. Think they should step aside? #NewGuysRule?” she asked on Twitter.

The men, meanwhile, lobbed nepotism charges, asking, “Luke Russert was qualified for this job just out of college? Or did he have Daddy help him get this job? Also known as NEPOTISM. Step aside Luke for someone who can actually earn your job.” A female watcher added, “OMG I can’t believe he asked such a question! LOL I’m glad Nancy shut him down. He’s such an ass.” And another: “Hmmmm…..Maybe you were laughed off and booed because you were offensive? Ponder that Luke.” And another: “They are 70+ but they’re fine leaders. How immature & arrogant you are. Did you learn nothing about respect from your Dad?” And another: Not just Pelosi was insulted! You managed to insult ALL women! #LOSER.”

Back to the males: “Well, Luke, you got your job due to nepotism. I think you should questions regarding legitimacy of employment.” This gentleman added, “BTW did your balls taste, because Nancy served them up to you.”

Watch the C-SPAN clip here. Quasi coming to Luke’s defense, CNN’s Dana Bash remarked on Twitter… “I have never seen Nancy Pelosi play up the pro woman theme as she is doing now. Even joking about the scary sight of all men at the table.”

absolutely nothing to reform healthcare. President Obama was the only change that got healthcare reform.

He had to drag these lazy democratic members of congress like Pelosi into helping. For decades these senior members sat back and never pushed the issue let alone get anything done. They didn't give a damn for years and it is pretty sad that some of you still believe in them.

Between rightwing republicans and support for lame democrats it has kept this country behind. I am really glad young democrats are questioning and demanding change. The democratic party needs a shake up.

It's easy to get 'distracted' from the 'change you went to Washington to implement' when you get comfy with the money, the perks, the lifestyle and the podium ... a changing of the guard is desirable at all levels, every so often to make sure the REAL constituents are being represented.

I disagree. I feel it will be a big mistake to keep Pelosi in the leadership spot. From Pelosi to Schumer there are some dems who need to be replaced by a new and more progressive bunch.

Time to move on and a lot of young people feel that way whether it is PC or not. Democrats risk losing a lot of young democrats if they keep these same cronies in power.

16. You are wrong, Grasshopper. Pelosi has managed to bring all or most Dems together in the House

to GUARANTEE votes for the Democratic Party. Even when some Democrats were against the bill. THAT'S leadership. That's her job. And she did it very well.

She's very good at getting the Dem reps to change their positions. It's an art. Teddy Kennedy could do it. She doesn't do it, apparently, with animosity or threats.

She actually got the Dems in the House to pass a health care reform bill that included a public option. But the public option didn't make it thru the Senate.

Pelosi is a backstabber to the progressive movement and so are some other democrats. Fortunately many younger democrats see this. Keeping these people in office and power will cost democrats.

Pelosi has been in congress since before my now young adult son was born. Those are many years of doing nothing. They are rightly questioning why they should continue to support these people who for decades did nothing progressive. It seems this is an example of younger people being smarter than their elders.

18. Ummm...her job is not to be progressive. Maybe you misunderstand her position.

She is the leader of the Dems in the House. Her job is to bring in the votes to support Democratic Party bills. Dem. Party bills are usually not progressive. Most Democrats are not progressive.

As I said, she DID a miracle...she brought in enough votes in the House to PASS THE PUBLIC OPTION. A very difficult thing to do. And a pretty progressive thing to do. Something Teddy Kennedy couldn't do.

Of course she is no Ted Kennedy. No one is. But he's not here to become minority leader.

I await your list of things she failed to do, that make you unhappy. I have told one HUGE thing that she did do.

She failed to get enough democrats to push through a more progressive form of healthcare because she doesn't personally back it. The list of things she failed to do is exactly that- all the things she failed to to.

Why don't you list the bills she personally sponsored and successfully got passed. Considering she has been in congress for decades it should be extensive.

20. You didn't read my post. She DID get a public option passed. It was REID who did not.

The House passes a bill. It goes to Senate. The Senate revised the bill, removed the public option, and sent it back. The House needed to revise it or vote on it, and it had to go back to the Senate. She COULD have changed it back to what they had sent to the Senate before, but it would've done no good. The SENATE didn't have the votes to pass a public option.

There you have it. Pelosi was the ONLY one who pushed for and got a public option from the legislature. Obama agreed with it, of course, or she wouldn't have done it.

You need to get the facts on what a public option is. Pelosi has been in office for decades and this is the best you have?

Here is another fact. The democrats were on a losing streak thanks to the sorry laid back do nothing democrats in congress and a horrible DNC led by McCaulifee. They were also a factor in big losses in 2010.

Face it, many democrats can't stand them and they cannot get out the votes like President Obama. Keep supporting Pelosi and Reid and there will be losses in 2014. You can live in a bubble and ignore that fact but once again democrats will be kicking themselves.

Pelosi passed a version of the healthcare bill that was stronger than the strongest bill the Senate could pass with 60 votes. It had a public option, it had stronger subsides than the Senate version.

Your story is completely false.

43. You seem to want to dismiss what is being said to suit your own agenda

it's fine to not like Pelosi but it isn't fine to repeat something that isn't true. She did indeed get the public option passed initially. When the Senate didn't have the votes to pass it, what was she to do, take over the Senate? That isn't her job, that, as it's been pointed out is Reid's job. After Reid couldn't get the public option passed in the Senate and it got kicked back to Congress, where it had already passed with the public option, were they just supposed to drop the bill entirely? Send the exact same bill back that couldn't get votes the first time around?

How was she supposed to get the Senate to pass this? I'd really like an answer besides your not thinking Pelosi is progressive enough.

And just FYI, at this point in time in politics, there are never going to be more progressives in Congress or Senate than Blue Dogs. A lot of people on DU don't seem to comprehend the fact that a progressive Democrat is not going to win, in say, Missouri or Indiana or Arizona, so Blue Dog Dems are better than Tealiban Republics, IMO.

You just don't like the answer. Pelosi, Reid, and the democrats who have been in congress for years all need to be replaced by new and progressive democrats. Until you and other Americans face that this country will continue to lag in progression.

These people are an insult to democrats who actually fought republicans. They came in during the eighties and nineties and have been kissing republican rear ends every since. They all sit around yapping and calling each other "my good friend" and taking real issues as some joke.

That's why none of them moved on healthcare reform until President Obama forced the issue.If people would kick their behinds out of congress they wouldn't take things so lightly.

...is a statement denigrating Ms. Pelosi.

Even if you don't think she was much of a Speaker, she was our Speaker and she did shepherd the Affordable Care Act through the House in spite of an amazing deluge of opposition, from both Republicans and Democrats.

And of course your statement tends to derail the real point of the OP. What the bloody hell is a product of nepotism like Luke Russert doing asking such a question? "Some of your colleagues privately say..." Pffft. What a little pissant. I'm glad Nancy put him in his place.

Sexism is so entrenched it is not even noticed. I'll bet money that Luke has never, ever asked that question of any of the old men of the House or the Senate.

It why you can't get them enthusiastic and out to vote in midterm elections. Get new people in leadership, run new candidates, and the voters will come out.

The only ignorant people are those who keep electing the same losers to congress and putting them in power. Then you wonder why America isn't as progressive as other nations. Look in the mirror the next time you ask that question.

65. You seem to be very familiar with them.

 

It seems you would be more at home. Your inability to accept an opposing view proves it.

67. yours in not an opposing view. If it were

you would be able to argue the whole pint with facts that you could reference but you cant do that so you are a troll and you are now ignored.

Apparently you're too lazy to do so.

71. Look, there are legitimate arguments that someone else could do a better job than Pelosi

However, "you're over 70, get out of the way for younger folks" is not one of them.

12. Luke Russert is an incompetent asshole.

And his dad was a republican gas- bag who pretended to be "non-partisan" while sporting a "W" button in the 2004 campaign.

On edit: Nancy Pelosi was certainly NOT a do-nothing Speaker-of-the-House. She shepherded the ACA through, and she held wayward Democrats' feet to the fire. If there were problems, blame the DINO who failed to support her.

24. He & his dad are/were VASTLY over rated.

I was really confused here at DU when Sr. Russert passed and all of the garment-rending occurred. I always saw Timmy as a right-of-center hack. And his son, who I believe was STILL in college at IU down in Bloomington, was hired.

It was definitely a WTF moment, and little Luke appears to be proving me right.

27. How apropos....

I mentioned it in a thread yesterday
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=246979

Glad to see it's getting a little more airplay.
I was no real fan of Tim Russert, but he was well respected as a journalist by other journalists. Luke is FAR too young to have slid right into that post. He hasn't paid the price, he hasn't ground the long slog, he hasn't *earned* the notariety necessary for such an assignment.
Nepostism is like inheiriting billions.... you have it, but you didn't earn it and what qualifies you to keep it?

33. I am probably

gonna be flamed or alerted on this comment, but I have to say: Luke Russert is the classic example of white boys' affirmative action.

An obnoxious little SOB and POS who should STFU

51. Went to college with him..

and he didn't seem qualified for that so I just laugh every time I see him struggling to keep his head above water in the media

56. MSNBC just had him on reporting on Obama's sit down with the cons. That's a slap

in the face to all the viewers that made complaints yesterday. I sent an email and I'm sure others did as well.
At the very least he should not be given the coveted on air pieces.

60. Obviously, Tim Russert died to make room for Luke Russert's younger blood.

Its obvious.
