Going After Pelosi (WH will spin coming debacle as Nancy's fault)
Commentary ^ | 10/13/2010 | Jennifer Rubin

Posted on 10/13/2010 10:05:05 AM PDT by mojito

Here’s an idea for the White House spin squad: the wipeout of 2010 is a rejection of Nancy Pelosi, not Obama. Politico tries it out:

"In the home stretch of the 2010 campaign, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, more than even President Barack Obama, is emerging as the heaviest drag on Democratic hopes of holding on to the House."

"In district after district, from Florida’s Gold Coast to central Ohio, in the Ozark Mountains, on the Minnesota prairie and in retiree-laden Arizona, Pelosi’s face, plastered on billboards, recorded in video clips and emblazoned on mailers, is casting a pall over her colleagues’ chances of winning reelection."

"Conventional wisdom holds that midterm elections are referendums on the president — and Obama is certainly the central figure in the unfolding drama of the 2010 election. But if Democrats lose the House, it’s likely to be as much a rejection of the policies and politics of a woman who has managed to simultaneously become one of the most powerful speakers in congressional history and one of the most unpopular figures in American politics today."

Now wait a sec. Aren’t those “policies and politics” Obama’s as well? In what regard did Pelosi and Obama ever disagree? True, Pelosi’s demeanor is even more grating than the president’s, but the agenda she jammed through was Obama’s — and his villains are hers

She’ll be next to go under the bus? I don’t think she will go quietly.

On a side note, the Mr and I were talking about what kind of little home party we should have on election night? Food suggestions? Take the next day off work, in case the news gets better and better as the polls close across the country (we are in the Midwest)? Anyone planning anything “big” with friends over, etc. ?

Obama won’t have to throw her under the bus, she’s doing it herself. It will be close,if she stays in office.

Aside from the things I want to see out of this 2 year experiment in diversity, post-racial despotism, my other major dream is to be there when Nancy is shown her new chambers. Third stall on the left of the House Ladies Room.

Voter fraud is a concern but they shouldn’t be able to steel enough votes to win too many seats.

Nov. 2 is going to be a late, fun night. It won’t be a typical election night.

actually ... in my opinion it is mostly her fault.

She is the one that I am frothing at the mouth mad at.

My feelings about Obama are more akin to frustration that nearly half the country can't see him for the affirmative action poster child, half wit, 2nd rate con man that he is.

But Nancy... there should be a special place in hell for %itches like her.

Actually Pelosi Galore, Reid, Barney the Gay, Dodd the crook, and other left wing rats in the house and $inate started our deep recession by keeping the frauds in charge of Freddie and Fannie in charge and letting anyone who couldn’t afford to pay rent, buy a home.

Then, when Pelosi/Reid took over the house and $inate in 2007, they jump started the recession across the board with their tax and spend treason.

Pelosi is a danger to this country, and I could care less if the rats take her out of the picture. Rip her pieces, you liberal 0b0z0 rats/

Obama is the most disloyal D-bag in American Political History.

He will be universally hated on both sides of the aisle by 2012.

Since they aren't including Hairy Reed in their finger-pointing plans, their internals must show Sharon Angle blowing him out of the water.

the Mr and I were talking about what kind of little home party we should have on election night

The Mrs. and I are self-employed, so we'll be closing the shop on November 2nd. We'll do breakfast, then head to the polls to vote. The rest of the day and evening I'll be glued to FR, talk radio, and TV.

It's going to be a day to remember. We can't afford champagne, but I'll be hoisting a few cold beers to our success.

Well yeah! No matter how much she did or tried to do for Obama (and I don't think anyone can argue that she hasn't delivered for him, bigtime), it isn't enough -- Zero is destroying the Demwits in order to rebuild from the ground up with lockstep rubberstamp thugs recruited by him and beholden to him. Thanks mojito.

He can throw as many of them under the bus as he wants.

After all, they should have seen it coming after he tossed his “typical white grandmother” under it during the pres_ential campaign.

The first order of post-election business will be to squash the ethics "trials" of the corrupt black politicians in congress, because the black caucus will be that much more important after the crushing defeat the Demwits will suffer next month. Wow, it's less than three weeks away.
