Posted on 01/10/2014 4:54:19 AM PST by Sir Napsalot
Pelosi told reporters today, stressing that theyre focusing on the three Rs: the recruiting of candidates, the raising of the resources, and of course, the raising of the issues that are part of the debate.
So we feel pretty confident about it and that confidence some, as I say, the caliber of the candidates that we have and the support that we have at the grass-roots level that has enabled us to attract, as I say, candidate, resources, volunteers and the rest, she added.
After todays caucus meeting, Pelosi called it disappointing that the House Republicans are continuing their obsession with the Affordable Care Act in this new year yet was open to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) moving immigration reform in a piecemeal fashion as long as the goals of comprehensive immigration reform were eventually agreed to in conference. And thats why we have the three Bs the Bible, the religious community; the badges, the law enforcement community; and B, the business community supporting an effort for comprehensive immigration reform. ......
Pelosi was asked if the political climate stacked against moderates could work against Democrats and put taking back the House out of reach.
I certainly hope not, in terms of moderates on both sides of the aisle. We feel very confident. We think 2014′s going to be a great year, for these reasons. One is that the issues that I mentioned, whether its immigration, raising the minimum wage, background checks, all the rest of that are the priorities the American people want to see us act upon and so thats what our debate will be about, she replied.

One of the three "R" is certainly - Race baiting.
She forgot RIGGING ballot boxes.
More like....Raping our paychecks, raping our paychecks and raping our paychecks...
>>> One of the three “R” is certainly - Race baiting.
A second “R” is the usual ‘Racketeering’ (Chicago style)
All grist from their abortion mills.
Someday pelosi is just going to float away from all the air in her brain. OR she is going to liquify from an overdose of botox.
The only way the Dems are going to win in 2014 is if the GOP implodes and does something stupid like pass immigration reform, which it looks like they are going to do because the GOPe has no desire for conservatives to be in the majority.
One thing about the dems for which I have grudging admiration. They set a goal and fight at all costs to reach it.. contrast to the dithering, self-defeating, squabbling Repubs. The estabs in the GOP would much rather trash and destroy the TEA Party than take the fight to the dems.
Exactly. They have Bob Michel disease, i.e., they'd rather sit quietly and blissfully in the minority and not have to take responsibility for anything. Power and responsibility scare them.
I just love these satire articles.
They need cash to get their message out. Money talks. With enough of it they can buy time and repeat their lies. Repeated often enough, people start to believe them.
Sure they are going to raise issues, all kinds of issues. Anything they can evoke an emotional response on - that will all of a sudden become the most important issue. They'll be trying to distract from the many real and serious issues that they have completely screwed the pooch on.
It is a typical, even predictable strategy. On the other side, we just have to keep hammering them on the real issues, not let them set the stage for the debate.
Just say "The Government will fix [it] just like they fixed health care!"
“raising issues” - what a laugher.
Leftists avoid discussing issues based on their merits at all costs, because their position on issues either never works, or is simply illogical.
How about these three Rs:
How about “Revolution?”
“Recruiting, Raising Cash, Raising Issues”
Voter fraud, making slush funds from tax revenues, lying
Not to pick nits, but we’re really talking counter-revolution. Counter to the ‘fundamental transformation’ we’ve undergone courtesy of the wrecking crew in the Get Whitey House.
Nancy Pelosi...stuck in the 70s with her Mary Tyler Moore haircut.
“Who can turn the world on with her smile?
Who can take a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
Well, it’s you girl, and you should know it!
With each glance and every little movement you show it!
Love is all around no need to waste it.
You can never tell why don’t you taste it!
You’re going to make it after all.
You’re going to make it after all!”
Who can lie right to your face and smile?
Who can take a great nation and throw it on a rock pile?
Well, it’s you girl and you should know it!
With each speech the world knows that you’ve blown it!
Tax money’s all around you need to waste it.
Put some in your purse you lush you’re wasted.
You’re going to pass out after all.
You’re going to pass out after all!
Pelosi added: "And sucking up to latinos every chance we get will make me Majority Leader, again."

BTW, the Senate Immigration Reform Bill Nancy is pushing protects slimy, corrupt Latino Public Officials in US positions of power (like the ones pictured) from prosecution for crimes committed in office.
Yoo hoo, Nancy you forgot "Obamacare"---the signature legislation of your president----how come you Dems forget that, Nance? Huh?
Maybe this is why Dems wont run on Obamacare?
As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature plan that was ultimately enacted (by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote) into the "Affordable Care Act :
OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if youve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All Im going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. Youll still have choice of doctor.
Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American family would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.
