Pelosi Shoots Down Jackson Resolution

7/9/2009 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee promised fans she'd get a resolution passed in Congress honoring Michael Jackson -- but Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi just 86'd the proposal.

Nancy Pelosi: Click to watch
In a news conference moments ago on Capitol Hill, Pelosi said that while Jackson was "a great performer," a resolution "will open up two contrary views that are not necessary at this time to be expressed."

Somewhere Rep. Pete King is doing a righteous fist pump.

I would agree with Pelosi, MJ's memory will continue with or without a gov't resolution. The representative who spoke at MJ's memorial should not have even brought it up either.

This is a good. They should not be honoring a junkie and pedophile. Besides, the man is not even in the ground and his fanatical "followers" want him on stamps and resolutions. Forget it!

Are you kidding me? Oh, we can honor old bank robbers and murders like Jesse James, John Dillanger and Bonnie and Clyde, but we can't honor a musical and artistic genius who was one of the only people who cared so much for the world, health and children that he did something about it? INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY, HE WAS PROVEN INNOCENT, I think the world needs to realize, it is not just about them...it's about every human being and planet Earth. RIP MJ

Disgusting. It wasn't until 1986 that Martin Luther King Jr's birthday was honored as a national holiday, yet we want to honor this child molester a week after his death? Crazy.

Thank goodness. Pelosi did one good thing.

It's silly to make declarations about dead people that didn't have a massive impact on the US through wars or some major event that keeps this country free.

No matter the opinions on Michael Jackson, he was an entertainer. That's what their Hall of Fame is for.

IF THIS PRESS CONFERENCE WAS CALLED IN REGARDS TO THE MJ RESOLUTION, THE FAMILY OF MJ SHOULD BE HONORED. IT SHOWS THE TRUE IMPACT OF THIS MAN REGARDLESS OF HIS FAULTS. TO SHOOT IT DOWN SO QUICKLY SHOWS THE TRUE CHARACTER OF THE MEN AND WOMEN THAT REPRESENT US.

IF MJ WAS FOUND GUILTY OF THE CHARGES HE FACED DURING HIS LIFE, I WOULD STAND WITH HER ON THIS ONE. HOWEVER, JUST BECAUSE A COUPLE OF BIGOTS AND CLOSET PEDOPHILES DECIDE THAT HE IS GUILTY NO MATTER WHAT...IS TRULY SAD. THEY "REPRESENT" THE LAW, BUT THEY DON'T HONOR AND UPHOLD THE LAW.


AMERICA HAS NOT AND WILL NOT CHANGE FROM IT HATEFUL, SAVAGE WAYS. SOME MANY GOOD PEOPLE ARE OVERSHADOWED BY THE WRONG.

NOT GOOD FOLKS...NOT GOOD AT ALL.

give it time and let everything settle down and the family have greived then i think that these claims that mj was a abuser will be quashed as i think if they were lying then there concious will get the better of them and the real truth will come out. if he had been a woman and was surrounded by children we would not be having this debate. personnally i think that one day mj will be given the highest honor. perhaps even become the first black saint. also why are they questioning whether the children are his now! these children are greving for there father. why could this not wait until they are older also i would like to say on the donations for the lapd, mj ex wife should pay as she took money for mj to give up her rights to the children if she wants the children back then she should also pay the money back, by the way what happened to the millions jackson paid out in the 80's to have his body frozen until they can find a cure and bring him back mmmmm

This is truly the first thing Pelooosi has done right!

Shiela Jackson Lee is a joke in the state of Texas.............literally.

Now Pelooosi, why don't you get your buddy Obama on this disaster he calls a "stimulus" package. The economy has lost 2 million jobs since the bafoon signed the stimulus bill. That was in February! 2 million jobs in 4 months............WTF?!? The only thing this has stimulated is Obama's cajones!
