Republicans have been accused of inflaming public sentiment with heated rhetoric on health care reform but Rep. Michele Bachmann thinks it’s Nancy Pelosi that was trying to “incite something” by walking across the street.
In an Thursday interview with Sean Hannity, Bachmann defended the Tea Party protesters at the Capitol the day health care reform was passed. “Remember when Speaker Pelosi walked arm-in-arm in a civil rights march across Independence Avenue from the House buildings over to the Capitol,” said Bachmann.
“In three years I have never seen Nancy Pelosi cross the street the way that you saw in that picture. They deliberately went through that crowd perhaps to try and incite something,” she said.
