Pelosi the Mediator is Loose with Facts

Nancy Pelosi has indicated that if the Democratic nomination process is not settled prior to the convention she will step in to get it settled. She said that Democrats cannot afford to go to the convention without a chosen nominee. Seems to me that Nancy Pelosi is rewriting the rules for the Democratic Party. Their rules say that there are super delegates and that those selected as super delegates are free to choose whomever they want for president regardless of any other influence including the popular vote, delegate count and number of states won. The purpose of the super delegates was to ensure the people got it right (in other words, make sure we can get who we want) and to select a candidate if none wins outright. Pelsoi seems to be indicating that she does not want this process and that she will step in to make sure that all of it is settled before the convention, the time set aside to actually settle such issues.

Nancy also said a few things in response to questions about the electorate and the current president. Nancy demonstrates the typical liberal mindset with one answer and then distorts the truth with another.

“I totally agree … this war is a big lie. It was a lie to begin with, and it continues to be a lie … at some point, maybe the lies just got too heavy for him to carry.” [in response to a question about Scott McClellan’s book]

Republicans “will try to use it [California gay marriage ruling] in the rest of the country” during the election, but voters are “tired of people who will take you to war and get you involved in (these) cultural battles. … They want to know: ‘Are you getting me a job?’ … They’re tired of these cultural issues being the currency of the realm.”

This president will go down in history as the worst, whether you’re talking about jeopardizing our national security… (or) the worst record of job creation.” SFGate [emphasis mine]

In response to the first item, has Nancy Pelosi read the book? She agrees with it 100% and yet she has only been privy to the excerpts we have all seen. If McClellan states that all Democrats are criminals and molest young children will she still agree 100%? Perhaps it would be prudent for her to read the book before commenting on it. I see it, so far, as a man who is trying to make some money off his bitterness especially since many folks are saying he was not part of the big meetings and was rarely included in those things. I seem to remember that Tony Snow wanted to be included in meetings before he agreed to replace McClellan. If it was standard practice he would not have needed the assurance. I will wait to pass judgment on the content until I have read it. Pelosi has done with this book just as she has with the war on terror in Iraq. She has made judgments without having the facts in front of her.

Nancy Pelosi says that Americans want to know [from government] “are you getting me a job?” Since when is it the responsibility of government to get people jobs? Getting a job is an individual responsibility and it is up to every person to take this task on without the government. The Constitution of the United States has nothing whatsoever in it about getting people jobs. This is the problem with liberals. They think it is the responsibility of government to do everything for people including getting them a job. Nancy showed her true liberal colors with that statement and she left no doubt that she believes (as is her liberal indoctrination) that it is up to the nanny state to take care of everyone. She cannot imagine for one moment that people should do this for themselves. However, just to make it clear, those who want jobs (and are willing to go get them) can find them. The unemployment rate is low and it has been throughout the entire Bush presidency. His unemployment numbers are nearly identical to Clinton’s and Democrats tout that economy as the best ever. This leads me to the last item.

Her opinion of George Bush jeopardizing national security is a joke at best and complete stupidity at worst. There were far more terrorist attacks on the US or its interests during Bill Clinton’s presidency than during Bush’s. The 9/11 attack was the direct result of Bill Clinton refusing to attack terrorists each time they attacked us. He allowed them to attack embassies, naval vessels, and he pulled our troops out of Somalia after the Blackhawk down incident. This emboldened bin Laden to attack America, a country he viewed as a paper tiger. This is according to bin Laden himself and all the censorship and secret document theft by Clinton and his minions cannot change that fact. If Clinton had taken out bin Laden on any of the occasions that he could have (and there were at least three) then 9/11 probably would not have happened.

As for the job creation or the economy in general, the Bush economy is as good as the one Clinton had and in some measures better. Bush inherited a recession from Clinton and 9/11 occurred eight months into his presidency. Despite this, job growth is as high as Clinton’s, unemployment is the same and the largest amount of home ownership in history has taken place on Bush’s watch. The problems we are having now (not unlike the dot com bubble burst) are a result of US monetary policy and political correctness. Our monetary policy is poor and we continue to print money out of thin air. The more unbacked (as in a gold standard) dollars that they flood into the market, the less value each of them will have. As far as PC goes, we allowed race baiters to change how loans are given. Jackson and Sharpton cried that denying blacks (as well as other minorities) a home loan was racist despite the fact that the decisions were based upon credit worthiness. Rules were relaxed and people who should not have been given loans were. Now they are defaulting and the baiters are crying that the banks are at fault for lending to people who could not afford it.

The reality is, many people (minorities and not) took advantage of the great housing market but they bought homes they could not afford. Some lenders engaged in shady practices and dimwitted people entered into contracts for things like adjustable rate mortgages. When the rates adjusted people who bought more than they could afford lost their homes. With regard to jobs in this country, it is a fact that the unemployment numbers are the same as they were under Clinton. If Bush has been an economic failure then so was Clinton. They cannot have it both ways. One last thing. People should not fall for the balanced budget BS that they harp on. The budget was never balanced. They did a lot of stuff on paper that would have made it balanced if all those things were adhered to. In other words, if they did it all the budget would be balanced in the future. Congress likes to spend and they have spent us into debt.

If the Democrats want to insist that the budget was balanced then they need to give the Republican Congress credit for it. Congress deals with the budget and if it was balanced it was balanced by a Republican Congress. As I stated though, it was never balanced and has not been for quite some time.

Nancy Pelosi showed her true liberal colors and she distorted the truth. This is what they always do. Remember, she and her Democrats were going to fix the gasoline price problems, they were going to stop the war, they were going to do it all. One of them recently admitted that thye lied to America because they knew they could not. Keep this in mind when you hear them spouting off, they will lie to you in order to get your vote.

Pelosi has been the worst Speaker of the House in the history of Congress. She is inept and she cannot get things done without attaching items to war spending packages. None of her plans would ever pass on their own merits so she and her cronies resort to procedural games to get stuff passed.

Finally, Nancy Pelosi said that this would be a bad year for Republicans and it is shaping up that way. If the Democrats win I hope they win big so that they can pass everything they want. This is what happened in Maryland and now a lot of people have buyer’s remorse because of the extremely high taxes imposed by the fuhrer here. A Democratically controlled Congress will do the same and I have the same hope for any of America’s poor and elderly who put them there. I hope you have to choose between cat food and heat in the winter. I hope you are so burdened and put out by their imposing taxes and policies that you suffer the worst pain you have ever had. I want it to be a matter of life or death for you the entire time they are in office.

Sometimes people need to experience pain before they learn. Consider it a great learning experience.

  3. Scott says:

    Funny thing is that Liberals & Democrats are often “educated” people yet seem to be too stupid to come to an obvious logical conclusion. I knew exactly what would happen in MD if O’Malley got elected and was telling people before hand. Heck, my predictions of doom didn’t even come close to the reality of the raping we’ve received, and yet those same Democrats & Liberals that now hang their heads in shame over O’Malley still want to vote for B.O.

    There is an old saying “Screw me over once, shame on you. Screw me over twice shame on me.” Evidently Democrats & Liberals like getting screwed over.
