Yes, they picked up the story of her response to the non story.

More faux outrage please!

That's the problem they cant think for themselves but have to rely on the talking points and their media. Just look at this thread and its amazing the amount of group think from them

Do you not see anything wrong with what she did?
What "wrong" did she do really?

Was any of those women photoshopped in, not elected members of Congress?

Was the picture supposed to capture that exact moment of time or was it to display the Dem women of the new Congress?

This has already been explained, those women were NOT AT THE ACTUAL SHOOT BUT WERE PHOTOSHOPPED IN. You dont think there is anything dishonest about that? And the fact that it was that pos garbage scum pelosi was behind this who has shown that she cant be trusted

She needs to admit the truth and take out the doctored photo.

We get it, you hate Nancy Pelosi. Why, I am not quite sure. She's a woman, and she's a Democrat, and she's powerful.
Righties are always making fun of her looks because they are classless monkeys.
She is 72 years old. I'm curious to know are there good looking Republican women that are 72 years old? Didn't think so.

OMG In my high school yearbook, when students were absent from team photographs, they photoshopped the missing students into the photos. And here, all this time, I thought the point was to show who was on the team. Little did I realize that the yearbook editors are fraudulent scumbags!
Obvious fake quote is obvious, but pretty much sums up their point of view. Wait - point of view indicates that at least some small amount of thought went into forming their opinions. I'm not so certain that any thought *could* have gone into it.

You need to admit the truth - that you're an idiot who doesn't read posts & is only here to troll. Because, as has been mentioned multiple times in this thread, THE ORIGINAL RELEASE OF THE PHOTO SAID THAT THEY HAD BEEN PHOTOSHOPPED IN.

I just checked the article that they had been photoshopped in. But that is not my main problem. My issue is that she did this, those women were late for the photo, they should have waited or cancelled but I dont think its right to photoshop them in. Considering these politicians are paid by the taxpayer would it have hurt them to come in extra early?

Also I am a harsh critic of pelosi, her views are flawed and dont work and she is an idiot. She also supports obama who I criticize.

Honestly, Don't you think that if the republicans had done this then there would be outrage over it?

Also your yearbook example is flawed because that is a school and these are politicians paid by the TAXPAYER. The yearbook is a petty issue and not many people would actually care about it.

As well this is the same pelosi who called the Tea Partiers "nazis"

Finally I am not a troll, My views are much different than from democrats and republicans and do go against the status quo so some members think I am an idiot or crazy:mad:

God forbid someone misses a yearbook press photoshoot because they have actual work to do or family matters to attend to, lol. And you're an idiot because you delete your own posts and theads because you got dismantled and ridiculed by the community for your pseudo, trolling logic, and you got butthurt :p

I deleted my post because I felt the thread had run its course, it was the same thing going over and over and Christmas is finished so there is no point to the thread.

You're severely projecting here. I enjoyed the contradiction in one short post, though and bolded and underlined for you where it is, unless you're admitting to being a classless monkey.
THE ORIGINAL RELEASE OF THE PHOTO SAID THAT THEY HAD BEEN PHOTOSHOPPED IN.
Are you sure? Absolutely nothing I saw made that clear.

^^^What does it matter? Seriously, who's the victim? The American People? They don't give a rat's ass if they were there at that exact moment or not.

How about you start reading through your own thread. Someone posted a link within the first 2 dozen posts. Perhaps if you had read people's replies in this thread, you wouldn't look like such a tard for so long.

But when her office released the photo, all the women in the party appeared. A Pelosi spokesman attached a message to the picture, noting it had been altered to add lawmakers who arrived late.
I'm not sure if you realize how stupid you and two others appear in this thread for making an issue out of this. The exact same thing is done in high school yearbooks & many many other resources on a nearly daily basis. The intent of such a photo is to show the group - not to show who showed up on time, and who was otherwise occupied.

And, even if they never stated it, it still isn't an issue. That you three are claiming that there was some sort of intention to deceive makes you look like a bunch of simpletons.

Honestly, the left does itself no favors by harping on this photo. It's the very same distortions from the left regarding this photo that has prompted the OP to crap on the Pelosi photo. All you've managed to do is to demonstrate that faux outrage is something both sides engage in.

I really didn't know that it was possible for human beings to be as stupid as Incorruptible, michal1980, and Doppel. I don't even know if stupid is the proper word ... no, sorry I have to correct that, human beings is the improper part. I don't see how anything that is as stupid as those three can be still considered human beings. The posts by the three of them in this thread are without a doubt the most idiotic things I've ever seen posted online, and that is so pathetic it's impressive.
