US Congress leader Pelosi calls Bush 'a total failure'
Yahoooo ^ | 7/17/08 | AFP

Posted on 07/17/2008 3:04:55 PM PDT by mdittmar

US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday called President George W. Bush "a total failure" who "has no ideas," in an interview with CNN.

Responding to stinging criticism from Bush on the Democratic leadership in both houses of Congress and the slow pace of the legislative agenda, as Congress prepares for its one-month summer recess in August, Pelosi let loose:

"You know, God bless him, bless his heart, the president of the United States, a total failure, losing all credibility with the American people on the economy, on the war, on energy, you name the subject."

Pelosi, 68, said the House and Senate were busy "trying to sweep up after (Bush's) mess over and over and over again ... The president knows it. He needs something to talk about. Because he has no ideas."

The speaker was especially critical of Bush's proposal to lift a ban on offshore oil drilling as a means to ease the current fuel price crisis, calling it a ploy to draw attention away from his failures.

Nancy is one to talk about total failure, huh? The Do Nothing Congress is ready to take its annual vacation despite not having addressed the problem of soaring gas prices.

Heh.

If anyone is a “total failure” it is Nancy. Such a phony. Such a liar. I don’t get how ANYONE could take her seriously enough to vote for her.

So..... The Speaker presiding over the house with the lowest approval ratings in history calls the President a failure?

Get a grip, Nancy.

This from a woman whose whose own legislative branch boasts a public approval rating in the single digits territory! Bush is still as twice as popular!

"You know, God bless him, bless his heart, the president of the United States, a total failure, losing all credibility with the American people on the economy, on the war, on energy, you name the subject."

HER CONGRESS HAS A NINE (9!) PERCENT APPROVAL RATING. SHE SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE!

Great. Put her quote in every children’s textbook. Right alongside Chamerlain’s “peace in our lifetime”.

Pompous asses who have a quote for the press and produce no results. Let history be the judge of the fools.

Such disgraceful behavior from the “speaker of the house”. There are partisan divides in this country, but to Nancy, Bush is the enemy and AQ is her friend.

She still refuses to acknowledge the success in Iraq.

Her rating numbers are in the pits, and she blames that on President Bush.

I have never been so embarrassed as an american as I am by the democrat party today.

Shame on Blitzer for giving her the air time to say what she said.

I will call her a bitch, because she is one.

I hope my post doesn’t get deleted; I have never used profanity here before, but Nancy is a disgrace to this nation.

If Bush is a total failure with an approval rating higher than Congress, how would you characterize Pelosi and her colleagues. Maybe, beyond total failue?

Will McCain now take the opposite position as Pelosi and ask her to retract the statement? I didn’t think so.

Hey, Pelosi, what is the public’s rating of Congress? Isn’t it down to around 9 percent of Americans who has a favorable rating of you and your fellow Congress critters? So, that means that 91 percent of us feel that you are a worthless POS.

Bush is still as twice as popular!

Nancy's not too good at math.

She thinks algebra is something mermaids wear for support (maybe the worst math joke ever).

History will not be kind to you Nancy...it will be kind to Pres. Bush.

Despite whatever other differences and mistakes, or how you and the left may howl, his policies freed 50 million people, his policies have kept us safe here at home for the last 8 years, and his policies have precided over a period (outside of the last few months) of unparalled growth and prosperity for most Americans.

You, OTHO, have presided over precisely nothing, and worse, have allowed, by you inaction, and your blocking of policies that could have and would have made a difference, brought on us most of the problems we are now experiencing.

History will mark you as the leader of that Nancy...and I believe you know it and are lashing out at the man who is far your better.

Um, I’m not sure “energy” was the best example.

It is this Congress and this Speaker that has royally screwed up on energy and neglected the real solution — more production.

I would not be so quick to dismiss her concern. After all, she knows more about being a total failure than just about anyone and if the old saying it takes one to know one is indeed correct........

just kidding.
