Pelosi on Stimulus: Dumbest Statement Ever
The Patriot Room ^ | 2-3-09 | YouTube video

Posted on 02/03/2009 1:20:56 PM PST by Scott Martin

Video at the link.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi wins, while setting the bar sky high for anyone trying to top it. 500 million Americans will lose their jobs if the stimulus plan doesn't pass?

Imagine if George W. Bush had ever said anything this stupid. The MSM would've run it nonstop for years.

That means U.S. babies for years to come will not have jobs.

Including her daughter’s? Because I think that tacks on at least several thousand...

Leftist insanity. The last time I checked, there were only about 247 million of us, give or take a few million “undocumented workers”.

The losses are mostly from the seven extra states we have.

Still only accounts for 50 million.

150 million illegal alien workers make up the rest maybe?

Dead people? They vote, maybe she’s counting them as workers too.

She’ll say that she meant 500 million jobs, because everyone has had to work 3 jobs in the Bush economy...

This is the sort of quote I remember when the MSM calls Republicans dumb. Don’t get me wrong, I’m more than willing to call Reagan, Quayle, Bush, Gengrich, etc. morons. That is, so long as we don’t let Barrack “57 states” Obama, Nancy “500 million jobs” Pelosi, Joe “FDR was president in 1929” Biden, etc. off the hook.

...even the ones that don’t have jobs."

I would argue it's especially the ones that don't have jobs. After all, if productive citizens aren't earning paychecks, who's going to pay for the slackers?!?!

Much like Gore's asinine pronouncements, this statement of Pelosi's will become FACT via repeated announcements and multiple cross-citings amongst gullible media outlets.

Those who refute this FACT in the future will be labeled denialists, akin to nazi scum.

Yup, you're on to something. Obama comes from a time where there are 57 states. That's why he keeps his birth certificate secret from folks ~ it's hundreds of years in the future.

He and other Time Lords are here to REJUST events.

Now we have Pelosi making a slip of the tongue regarding the 500 million people in her country (probably Nicaragua) in that far distant time, so now we know who and what these people are.

We must fight back!

Give her a break. She spends all day talking about 100 million dollars here...700 million dollars there...500 million dollars over there...you can’t expect her to all the sudden start talking in mere tens or hundreds of thousands of anything. This woman is a shining example of terminal stupidity...two heartbeats away from the most powerful office in the world.

Listen to her carefully, she says “every month 500 million Americans will lose their jobs”.

Maybe Nancy’s a big North America Union booster and a globalist, and she just slipped and included all of North America, and Central and South America, too, all of the Americas.

It's not just 500 Million total!

It's 500 Million Americans will lose there job every day the bill is not passed!!!

If the stimulus package is not passed until February 17th, that means that an additional 4 Billion Americans will lose their jobs. (I'm being charitable, and figuring that nobody will lose their job on the week-end or holiday...)
