Nancy Pelosi blames Republicans for nation’s ills

By: Simmi Aujla June 8, 2010 10:40 AM EDT

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaking to a friendly audience of progressive activists, was ready to cast blame for the country’s troubles Tuesday morning.

She blamed the exploding national debt on the Bush administration and said Democrats’ push to invest in education, job creation and health care would bring America out of its financial troubles.

“President Obama and the Democratic caucus have saved this country from a financial crisis created under the Bush administration,” Pelosi told the America’s Future Now gathering in Washington.

She blamed Republicans for de-regulating big oil, assuring the receptive crowd that BP would be held accountable for its handling of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

And she had harsh words for Wall Street, as the House and Senate get set for a final conference committee on a financial reform bill.

“No longer will recklessness on Wall Street be able to cause joblessness on Main Street,” she said. “No longer will those on Wall Street be able to privatize the gain and nationalize the risk, send the bill to the taxpayer if things don’t go their way,” she said.

She said the oil spill crisis highlighted the difference between Republicans and Democrats approach to problem solving.

“It seems to me the choice is clear,” she said. “Democrats want to rein in big oil, the Republicans say no. Democrats wanted to rein in health insurance costs, the Republicans said no. The Democrats are reigning in big banks and the Republicans are saying no.”

Chronic crack use is leading her down the same path to insanity followed by Marion Barry and the rest of these nutbag socialists.
