While not exactly a John F. Kennedy “Ich bin ein Berliner” moment, House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi turned up Saturday at the U.S. southern border with Mexico to proclaim “we are all Americans.”

Despite President Obama describing the situation a “humanitarian crisis,” the California Democrat seemed less certain.

A comment that sparked a quick reaction from conservative blogger Michelle Malkin, and others. Twitchy captured some of the tweets:
