Nancy Pelosi blames Republicans for nations 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 countrys 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 Americas 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 dont 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.

Where do all spending bills originate, Nan?
She is such an ARSE!
She must not have heard for boss’ graduation speech.
Sorry Nan... that don’t work no mo... time to smell the Tea and do a Helen Thomas...
Her ignorance is positively homeric in proportions.
I reckon her government jet(that we pay for) runs on solar power.
Don’t you love Nancy when she has an LSD flashback...
Worse, she's a sociopath.
Right on Nancy! It’s only been seventeen months.
Hoping for a debilitating embolism.
Talk about losing touch with reality ...
The two conditions are not mutually exclusive. ;)
THAT DAMNED BUSH!!!!
Chronic crack use is leading her down the same path to insanity followed by Marion Barry and the rest of these nutbag socialists.
Is anyone still stupid enough to fall for this?

Republicans made me take that jet and run up expensive bill on it. Republicans made me pass the health care bill so quickly that I didn't have time to read it.
Actually 41 months the dems have owned Congress.
Hey Nancy, may you look like Helen Thomas.
Actually, you’ve got a solid start.
DAMN THAT BUSH!!!
January 2006 Nancy. Are you taking your meds?
IT’S THAT DAMNABLE BUSH!!!
Nancy you ignorant slut. Donkeys control the house, the senate and the oral office. How can it be the GOP’s fault?
DAMN YOU TO HELL, BUSH!!!!!
Bush is to blame for 9-11 even though it happened only 8 months into his presidency... but Obama is not to blame for anything, the economy, the spill response... or anything else over a year and a half into his presidency...
I blame it on the Democrat victory in 2006 on. ...And I’m right. Pelosi is wrong.
“Chronic crack use is leading her down the same path to insanity followed by Marion Barry and the rest of these nutbag socialists.”
I don’t think there’s much doubt she’s on something. Crack? I don’t know. If we could institute random drug tests on our DC delegations, we could fix most of the problem right there.
Even the terminally stupid have begun to question her sanity.....
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is heckled by Code Pink at an event in Washington, D.C.
“We supported Obama, we supported you, now 21 states are begging for money to help us save the community,” a woman screamed at Pelosi.
“You have made your point,” Pelosi said in an attempt to quiet the protesters.
An aide informed her that they are “throwing stuff.”
But didn’t she say the healthcare bill would fix EVERYTHING? Could it be that Nancy is...duplicitous?
I must be doing something right. I’ve finally had a post replied to by the famous and infamous Lazamataz. :)
Work the word “Breasts” in your comment and Laz will reply every time.
No she's not, she's a professional liar. She was there watching when Bill Clinton proved that a Democrat can tell absolutely blatant, even outrageous lies, and the media will present them to the public as News You Can Use.
Her problem is that she's not quite as good a liar as Bill Clinton. Obama is as good a liar; she should leave the outrageous, blatant lying to him.
Thanks for the tip. I knew about the ‘hit it’ routine, but the item you mentioned hadn’t hit my radar screen yet. [Oops, I think that came out wrong. More coffee, please.]
As I recall when Nancy became Speaker everything, and I mean everything started going to sh*t. I do recall oil at $135/bbl and her response was to outlaw 3-way lightbulbs. That sticks in my mind. It pretty much describes the intelligence of Democrats. By the same token, with oil gushing out of the Gulf they will enact a Cap and Trade tax. They don’t fix things, they loot and destroy. Its what they do.
I had to throw out some stinky chicken “breasts” that got lost in the back of the refrigerator. Testing...
Well I’m not a professional, so that this fwiw. I see pathological lying as the symptom, not the underlying cause. For that, I’m going to go with highlander’s diagnosis, with the caveat that in Pelosi’s case sociopathy has progressed [double entendre?] into full blown psychopathy. Pelosi has split with the real world, and probably couldn’t function outside her DC sinecure replete with hand-and-foot waiting aids and a thick wall of protection against the consequences of her own actions.
Again, just one person’s opinion, take it or leave it.
I wonder why her code pink hippies didn't trow tomatoes at the her..And why didn't she go on TV and down these out of control women,they sounded more like Nazi's than anyone she has accused in the past..
Just let liberals make deals behind closed doors because they know what's best for everyone, and when they come out and show everyone what they've imposed they'll like it and thank them for it. See, Pelosi really has no need for Democracy. And if things go horribly wrong? Blame Bush and Republicans.
