Pelosi partying like it’s 2006.
Odd, isn’t it? The GOP wins big last Tuesday night, and we – like adults – avoid unseemly celebrations about it. Given the almost double-digit unemployment, horrible economy, crushing debt load, and the rest of the Democratic legacy we’re inheriting, it seems… childish… to make the welkin ring*. But by God Nancy Pelosi’s going to have a party on Wednesday ‘honoring the accomplishments’ of the | Read More »
The Matter of Pelosi.
Bob Shrum, November 4, 2010: “Long after the midterm stories have faded, and the predictions of the President’s political demise prove as facile and false as they were with Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, history will accord Pelosi an unprecedented scale of achievement for a House Speaker.” Bob Shrum, September 30, 2010: “Democrats will hold the House and Senate. ” Shrum will no doubt mutter that he was | Read More »
Good Morning. It Is Election Day.
“I won.” — Barack Obama January 23, 2009 “Let me just say it this way, the Democrats will retain the majority in the House of Representatives. We have a huge — we have, what, 54-, 55-vote majority. We had a swing in the last two elections of 110 seats. We will — I am not yielding one grain of sand. We are fighting for every | Read More »
For Democrats, Math Is Hard. So Is The Truth.
The two latest examples of Democrat ineptitude, incompetence and total math fail come to us from none other than Nancy Pelosi (the best speaker of the house EVAH) and Joe “doll hair” Biden. First up is Nancy Pelosi with both bad math and shameless lies. As Ben Domenech points out at RedState, Pelosi claimed that Obamacare would create (or save!) 4 million jobs with 400,000 | Read More »
Video: Elections Have Consequences
This is the latest video from Ben Howe. For the first two in what is shaping up to be a series, go here or here. If there is one characteristic every Democrat in the above video shares, it’s arrogant disdain. They know best, you don’t. Alan Grayson says you’re gullible. Disagree? Let him know. There are two weeks left. First, vote with your money. Then, | Read More »
Palin rallies Orange County with terrific Victory 2010 speech
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Saturday rallied an excited crowd at a Republican National Committee rally in Orange County. Palin took on the Democrats’ leaders: “Are you ready to fight for your freedoms?You fire Pelosi, retire Reid and their whole band of merry followers, and we get back on the right track.” She took on the press: “For the press, yes I shall be | Read More »
Got cancer – and millions of dollars? Nancy Pelosi can help!
Let me summarize this Dallas Morning News article about Lisa Blue: if your husband (Fred Baron) is a millionaire and multimillion-dollar Democratic Party fundraiser – John Edwards’ bagman, in fact – and also dying of bone marrow cancer, then you can not only get away with smuggling into the country experimental cancer medicine of dubious efficacy; you can get the Speaker of the House herself | Read More »
The Nancy Pelosi Tinfoil Hat Cat Video open thread.
Erick has already covered the story of how Nancy Pelosi has Embraced The Crazy by claiming that the Right is sending people over to her local events to ask questions about the Ground Zero Mosque… but I could not resist putting those comments in, as they say, context. Look on the bright side: Embrace The Crazy is only Stage Two of Conspiracy Theory Thinking. She | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi Joins the Fringe Mosquerade
Ladies and gentlemen, we have come through the looking glass. Tonight on KCBS radio in San Francisco, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi began calls for investigations into opponents of the Ground Zero mosque. Aligning herself with the fringe — a group of people no larger than those who think 9/11 was an inside job and those who think Barack Obama is a foreign born | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi Wishes Everyone Well But Americans
Here is Nancy Pelosi’s twitter feed. Today she wished Muslims celebrating Ramadan “joy, wisdom, and countless blessings.” On August 3rd, she wished the Sing Tao newspaper a happy 35th birthday. On July 6th Nancy Pelosi wished the Dalai Lama a happy 75th birthday. On July 4th the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives . . . oh, you’ve figured it out. Nancy Pelosi | Read More »
On Missouri and the rejection of the PPACA
From Unlikely Voter: When I heard yesterday that Missouri passed an initiative attacking the PPACA in state, and declaring that Missouri’s citizens are exempt from portions of it, I thought it would be interesting to compare that Proposition C’s results with polling on the issue in state. So let’s check.
The Bizarro World of San Fran Nan and the House Dems
As Friday’s House recess deadline looms, the CLEAR Act is rushing toward a floor vote. The CLEAR Act was supposed to fix whatever went wrong with Federal oversight of the Deepwater Horizon. One provision of the bill, offered by Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), would have set up a Congressional commission of petroleum engineering experts to investigate the accident. This proposal was accepted unanimously in committee | Read More »
Does Georgia Right to Life Now Support Embryonic Stem Cell Research?
I am guessing Dan Becker and Georgia Right to Life are just fine and dandy with embryonic stem cell research. They don’t like Karen Handel funding cervical cancer screenings, but they love them some Nathan Deal despite his support for a Henry Waxman backed piece of legislation funneling $500 million to the abortion industry explicitly for abortions. Well, Nathan Deal also signed on to NANCY | Read More »
Breaking: Rangel to be charged with new ethics violations
A House ethics committee has launched an investigation into New York Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel for undisclosed ethics violations, the Associated Press reported Thursday. Rangel, who resigned from his chairmanship of the House Ways and Means Committee in March following a formal admonishment for two corporately-underwritten Caribbean junkets, will appear next week before a subcommittee of the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct. Composed | Read More »
Today in Washington – July 14, 2010
Thank you President Obama. We couldn’t have done it without you. The Conservative movement is back and strong as ever. Liberals and Progressives are in tears. Keep up the good work, Mr. President. More on this issue below the fold. The House will vote on H.R. 1722, the Telework Improvements Act, and 6 suspension bills. The Senate is scheduled to continue work on H.R. 5297, TARP, Jr., and | Read More »
