Pelosi: Obama Has More Patience Than Biblical Job
CNS News ^ | July 14, 2011 | Nicholas Ballasy

Posted on 07/14/2011 1:21:37 PM PDT by Immerito

(CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that President Barack Obama has shown a “level of patience” in debt limit negotiations with congressional leaders that does not compare to the biblical figure Job, known as the “Man of Patience.”

“I want to commend the president – I have never seen – Job is no place compared to this president in terms of patience,” said Pelosi at a press briefing on Thursday. “He [Job] doesn’t even begin because this president has demonstrated a level of patience, not only during the meetings but as respect, respectful of the suggestions that are made by all parties at the meeting, in his preparation for the meeting, and his coming back to address concerns that are expressed by others.”

Perhaps Pelosi should read the Book of Job before she makes such nonsensical comparisons.

The only “job” that I’m reminded of when I think of Obama or Pelosi is the term my parents taught me to say when I had to go potty.

“Mama, I’ve got to make a job.”

Spewww!

Total nonsense as you would expect from Pelosi.

She needs to be reminded that Job was on God’s team not on Satan’s.

Obama is certainly able to pull off the world's greatest con. A grand confidence scam that he has run since January 2003 when he announced that he was running for US Senate. Eight years, six months. The old "86"!

In any case presenting the public face of a soft-spoken grandee for 103 months does require an amazing form of patience on his part.

Number facts: 103 is a happy number, a happy prime. Sadly for Obama, maybe, 104 is a irreducible pseudoperfect number.

Everything about Obama is psuedo, yet he has perfectly pulled it off so far.

And Nancy, Job was a “righteous” man you are a blithering idiot and Obama is always the most inexperienced person in any gathering he walks into.

You guys might be missing a bigger picture here. Pelosi might have just figured out that Obama is a narcissist and is promoting him as a god.

Pelosi: "this president has demonstrated a level of patience...respectful of the suggestions that are made by all parties at the meeting

That is her polite 'politicaleze' for terming the suggestions of the Republicans as being absurd and wholly unacceptable.

In our house there were two types of “jobs” - a “big job” (also described by Dave Barry as a “Geraldo”) and a “little job” (as in Obama getting all wee wee’d up yesterday).

Today’s he’s a really, really BIG job.

Some people asked that he spend $10 and get an official state document. From the howling I think that was the equivalent of a breech birth of a 20 pound baby.

In saner times, Pelosi would be put in a straitjacket and kept off the streets for the safety of the public.

That she is Minority Leader (and formerly Speaker) is a sad commentary on where we are today.

The media greatly conspired with him. But Obama had to play the public part very well too. He has done so. Truth is, he has had many public miscues and bad public moments, because Democratic politicians and popular icons of the liberal side are given an awful lot of leeway in general, and Obama was given leeway even greater than that.

The virtues of Sabr in Islam

The Arabic word sabr implies many shades of meaning, which is impossible to comprehend in one English word. It implies (1) patience in the sense of being thorough, not hasty; (2) patient perseverance, constancy, steadfastness, firmness of purpose; (3) systematic as opposed to spasmodic or chance action; (4) a cheerful attitude of resignation and understanding in sorrow, defeat, or suffering, as opposed to murmuring or rebellion. Sabr assumes different dimensions depending upon which aspect of life is the point of reference.
