Queen Pelosi’s Definition Of Bipartisan

Nancy Pelosi has a strange definition of bipartisan. To most thinking people, it relates to TWO parties and when used in this context means they will work together. Nancy Pelosi and her brood of Democrats all claimed that the Republicans ignored them and they claimed that George Bush had not worked with them on anything. This despite the fact that Bush tried to reach out to them only to be slapped down. After crying about how partisan the Republicans are, Pelosi said:

“Elect us, hold us accountable, and make a judgment and then go from there. But I do tell you that if the Democrats win, and have substantial majorities, Congress of the United States will be more bipartisan.” ABC

First of all, it is hard to hold them accountable because as soon as they screw up or get blamed for something they point at President Bush. He gets blamed for everything. Pelosi said the Democrats had nothing to do with the economic problems when they were largely responsible. Obama said Bush was to blame for everything when he campaigned (now his moonbat followers are accusing him of being like Bush) and Harry Reid said Bush was the worst president ever even though his approval rating is better than Congresses’. No, you can’t pin blame on them because they always have an excuse.

Then there was that part about being more bipartisan. As I pointed out, bipartisan means that each party has some say in the matters and that all opinions will be taken into consideration. It means that the majority is looking to partner with the minority to help solve problems. Like when Republicans wrote new rules after they took control in 1994. They included the minority party in the deliberations. They refused to exercise the nuclear option so that Democrats could still have a say. I warned at that time that if the Democrats ever took control they would not be so generous.

And of course, I was right.

Queen Nancy Pelosi of “more bipartisan” fame will introduce new rules for the House that exclude Republicans from the process.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to re-write House rules today to ensure that the Republican minority is unable to have any influence on legislation. Pelosi’s proposals are so draconian, and will so polarize the Capitol, that any thought President-elect Obama has of bipartisan cooperation will be rendered impossible before he even takes office.

Pelosi’s rule changes — which may be voted on today — will reverse the fairness rules that were written around Newt Gingrich’s “Contract with America.” Human Events

She will rewrite rules to keep Republicans from having any influence. I want someone to tell me how this is bipartisan. I want this 68 year old washed up Botox queen to tell me how this is working together. Maybe she has her granny panties in a wad because she will not be the top Democrat in DC. Make room for Daddy O.

This is nothing more than her attempt to ensure that Obama gets everything that he wants and that he will face little opposition. It is designed to make Americans think that the sainted one’s stuff is passing though easily because he is wonderful and everyone agrees. She did this to keep Republicans from screwing Obama the way the Democrats have screwed George Bush for the last eight years. She also did this so that Republicans would not be able to oppose the huge stimulus package that will surely include billions of dollars in pork. She does not want Republicans blocking the increased spending that the Democrats want. Trillions of dollars are at stake and Nancy can’t let it slip away.

If she thinks this will lead to more bipartisan cooperation then she is smoking some of those left handed cigarettes her state is famous for. This will tick off the Republicans who will find ways to cause gridlock.

If we can get the Senate Republicans to stick together then we can keep everything from passing. We can hold up cabinet appointments as well as judicial nominations. Our Senate should hold EVERYTHING up until the House agrees to rules that are fair to Republicans. The Senate Republicans need to work together in order to force the House to play nice or nothing gets done.

I am all in favor of gridlock. Let’s keep Obama’s plans from going through and let’s make sure nothing is rubber stamped. Let’s make sure McCain and the other RINOs keep their heads in the game and keep the Democrats from running roughshod over the country.

Keep an eye on them because any Republican than helps the Democrats out should be targeted in the next election. Even if it means we have a smaller presence we need to get rid of non conservatives.

The Democrats need to have as much control right now, without giving them total power, so that they have to make all the decisions. Then EVERYTHING is their fault (or their success). They can only get so much mileage out of blaming Bush before it gets old. They said they needed a bigger majority and they got it. Nancy said give them that and hold them accountable and that is what we should do.

We need to hold their pork laden little feet to the fire until we can boot them out of office.

Bipartisan? I am not surprised. This is a woman who thinks that murdering children in the womb is a choice.

To hell with her and the Democrats. And I mean that in the most bipartisan way possible.

    You’d think someone from San Francisco would know the meaning of the term “bi”…

    I have raised my son to believe that America is the greatest country in the world and despite what he hears or sees in the news that Americans are, for the majority, good, decent and smart people. Like Ronald Reagan, I’ve taught him to always believe in the American people. Now, even I begin to doubt. First we had that jackass Howard Dean tell us 4 years ago that nothing is the Dems fault, they hold no majority, no power. Other than the Iraq war, what was the big issue at that time? Nothing. The economy was fine (better than fine). So the Dems get power in 2006 and in the next two years the economy goes to hell and gas prices double. Coincidence? I think not. And still the Dems scream “not our fault!” Then their big complaint became that they didn’t have enough of a majority to stop the “evil, corrupt Republicans” Has anybody seen a Republican in the news lately caught with his hand in the proverbial cookie jar? At the center of every scandal and financial mess you find a Dem. But thanks to the media wing of the Dem party everything is still Bush’s fault. Well the Dems have everything they want now and they are out of excuses. I hope the American people can see through the smoke screen that the media will no doubt throw up over the next four years. If the Dems don’t get to do everything they want then they will blame Republicans. I say let them have their way. Then they own it. I just hope the country can survive. I have little hope that the Republicans will stand firm in the Senate to stop them. It only takes two or three votes from our side to give them a veto proof majority. They have gotten them in the past.

    The left is all giddy thinking that the Republican party and Conservatism is dead. If that had defeated a REAL Conservative Republican in the last election I might be inclined to agree with him. Since it was only John McCain I think they might be celebrating too soon.

    And as a final note. SEVEN YEARS OF SAFETY HERE AT HOME IS NOT NOTHING. President Bush should be commended for that. I just hope history will remember him for it. In his eight years in it has only been the last two that have been difficult for the country. I lay the blame for that mostly on the Dems. The RINO’s in Congress are to blame as well.

    Not thats bipartisanship!

  2. Pelosi conveniently omits the fact that the Dems have had the Congressional majority since the 2006 midterms. Now that they are about to take possession of the White House and there will still be a Congressional majority for the Dems she is quite content with all the economic turmoil and what she views as a mandate to spend, spend, spend.

    I don’t see the GOP having the stones to stay united and avoid massive spending. Hell, we’re already using trillions to describe each spending bill.

    Maybe the ‘change’ Obama alluded to was both parties crippling this country financially.
