Skip to comments.Is Pelosi Panicking? Leaked Memo Lashes Out at Republicans
Posted on 01/29/2009 7:57:16 AM PST by Clinton's a liar
This is a memo from Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Democratic members sent after the stimulus vote yesterday. Pelosi is apparently panicked at Republicans success in uniting against her hyperpartisan actions in shutting them out of the formulation of the stimulus bill and in peeling nearly a dozen Dems off to vote in opposition.
Here is the full text of the memo leaked to HUMAN EVENTS this morning.
To: Interested Parties
From: Brendan Daly
Re: The Republican Problem
Date: January 29, 2009
The House Republican Leadership put its Members in another politically untenable position yesterday: trying to reclaim the mantle of lower taxes and small government -- at the exact time when economists of every ideological stripe agree that government investments are the only way to get our economy moving again and make us competitive for the long term.
So yesterday, while we are facing the greatest economic crisis in decades, Republican House Members ended up voting unanimously against:

Brendan Daly is Pelosi's communications director. She must be in a panic to put this "The Republican Problem" memo out to Dem members. LOL
That memo shows that her bunched up panties have more wrinkles than her upper lip. (sorry for the visuals!)
The dog caught the car. Now what?...
Nancy Pelosi is an incompetent, power-hungry bitch who needs to lose next time around.
I am so proud to be a Republican today! Go get’em guys....
You say leaked? Leaked my A$$. More like published.
Of course, Pelosi is not smart enough to write this.
Wow. Not a single economist left who isn't a Marxist redistributionist. Who'da thunk it?
Hahahaha!!! Awesome. You own that dog, Nancy.
Welcome to the era of post-partisanship.
I’d say Steny Hoyer’s fingerprints are all over this ‘leaked memo’.
Pass the popcorn....
For the GOP to take an ideological tack that is the wrong economic tack at this point could be bad for the US and bad for the GOP (as it was in the 1930’s and 1940’s).
I support the theory, but right now Keynesian economics is the right move. The nuance of wanting to avoid wasteful spending and spending period is definitely lost on voters.
Moreover, as much as tax cuts sound like a good idea, the possibility that they would be spent (thus stimulating consumption and growth) as opposed to saved is a not 100% clear.
If there had been any doubt the bill would be passed, I doubt that the GOP would have managed unanimity. On the other hand, the message sent is both good and bad. It is good that the GOP is sticking to its principles. It is bad that at present the message was one of blocking as opposed to coming up with alternative solutions.
As for Pelosi - she is what she is. I don't feel the need to write that type of language here.
Bubba has weighed in. Saying that this is going to hurt republicans.
The spin is dizzying.
I all most reported this as abuse...
I don't recall hearing about the tax cuts for 95% of Americans in the generational theft act. I'd have thought something like that would have been mentioned somewhere. What the heck is Nancy talking about?
“... politically untenable position yesterday: trying to reclaim the mantle of lower taxes and small government — at the exact time when economists of every ideological stripe agree that government investments are the only way ... “
And this is what I hate most about liberals. They make up their supporting arguments then present them as fact. Pssst, Nan, real economists will tell you, government spending has never, ever brought an economy out of recession.
From the memo..”Once again this week, as another Democratic President and Democratic Congress worked to address historic deficits and recession brought on by Republican mismanagement of the economy, not a single Republican voted for the legislation.”
You are so stupid Nazi Pelousey!!! DemocRats are the cause of the melt down because they don’t understand free market economics.
Why are the Republicans united? Because they saw what happened to their collegue RINO’s last election for their bi-partisan capitulation. Don’t give the demoRats ANYTHING!
People will soon understand why these “stimulus” bills are nothing but bulls#it.
Please don't use Leaked and A$$ in the same sentence.
Leaked, huh? Kinda like the Niagra Falls leaks, right?
