Pelosi Claims Obama 'Was About Getting the Job Done Rather Than Pointing Fingers'

Pelosi Claims Obama 'Was About Getting the Job Done Rather Than Pointing Fingers' By Mike Bates Created 03/04/2012 - 1:21am

Saturday morning, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appeared alongside Rev. Jesse Jackson on his weekly Rainbow PUSH program, prior to her endorsement of Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL) in this month's Democratic primary. The Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, WLS AM, and the local affiliates of NBC and ABC all covered the the event.

Moments after saying it's "a badge of honor" for President Barack Obama to be known as the food stamp president, Pelosi made an incredible assertion (video here):

Look, remember the inauguration? Remember that, OK. There he was, saying I'm calling for swift, bold action now to create jobs, to educate our children. you know the list goes on, to protect our seniors, (garbled). One week and one day after the president's inaugural address, the House of Representatives passed his recovery stimulus package. And that, not by us, don't take it by me, by the economists who studied this, three and a half million jobs saved or created. And that was the beginning of taking down this 800,000 jobs being lost on a regular basis. He had inherited a terrible thing. Professional and statesman that he is, he was about getting the job done rather than pointing fingers, but I'll do it for him.

Obama doesn't point fingers? That's absurd. He's repeatedly blamed President George Bush, and there are many examples of that. Here are but a few. In his very first presidential press conference, Obama said: "What I won't do is return to the failed theories of the last eight years that got us into this fix in the first place." In August of the following year, CNN's Ed Hornik asked, "Will Bush-bashing help Democrats win over weary voters?" From the article:

President Obama has made a point recently to invoke Bush's name in what many say is a calculated effort to remind voters of the previous administration's economic policies, which Democrats argue led to the worst recession in modern history.

In June of last year, the Washington Times headlined, "Obama wants credit for cleaning up ‘big mess.’" The article begins:

President Obama told supporters at a fundraiser in Miami on Monday night that he deserves credit for cleaning up the mess he inherited.

“My job over these first two years has frankly been to clean up a big mess,” Mr. Obama said at a $10,000-per-ticket event at a gated mansion in Miami Beach.

Yet Pelosi's ridiculously over-the-top contention wasn't reported by any of the news outlets. Serving as stenographers, they dutifully detailed the Pelosi-designated story of the day, her endorsement of the younger Jackson. When it comes to satisfying the wishes of liberal Democrats, the mainstream media can be most compliant.

All obama has done is point a finger at the previous admin. Pelosi seems to forget dems were in power the last few years of the Bush admin.

The finger is squarely pointed at the gavel wielding moron and her co-horts by those sane enough to remember.

Yeah, I guess that explains why they so frequently have to mention “what they inherited from the previous administration”.

Oh we know how much he ‘WANTS TO GET THE DESTROYING AMERICA JOB DONE’.

And blaming others for his failure to do so isn’t? Sure.

Anyone who has attained the position of Speaker of the House, and then tells the American people in all seriousness that ‘we must pass the bill so we can find out what’s in it,’ is not someone that American voters should ever take seriously about anything.

That’s all this administration is about.

1) The previous administration
2) We inherited these problems
3) etc. etc. wash, rinse, repeat

Add one more file to the already extremely over-stuffed folder of irrefutable proof that Nancy Pelosi is completely and utterly insane.

This is without a doubt the most absurd comment I can recall hearing. It is so ludicrous, it doesn’t bear any further comment.

“Pelosi seems to forget Dems were in power the last few years of the Bush admin.”

Pelosi accomplished much to further the progressive agenda during her time as Speaker while GWB was president. I wish Mr. Boehner would attempt to accomplish something for the conservative agenda during his time as speaker. Nancy was committed to her cause. Bomb. Boehner seems committed to the status quo.

A Romney presidency with Boehner as House Speaker, McConnell as Senate Majority Leader and the Pelosi/Reid partnership in opposition will be more of what we have today. The Republicans will constantly be trying to compromise with ideologues who don’t know the meaning of compromise.

She has accomplishes alot of destruction in her time in the name of socialism. Boehner needs to get a spine and tell Pelosi she no longer holds the gavel but she is MINORITY leader. She has lost her throne and someone needs to remind her of that.

There isn’t even a liberal male who will standup to her. They claim respect for women, but I say they are spineless cowards.

This old cow needs to be put out to pasture. Her milk is just as sour as her ideas!

Getting the job done?
Well at least he has a job when @ 9 percent of Americans don’t
But Obama IS GETTING THE JOB DONE. Because as a muslim loving, America hating, socialist, he has managed to seriously damage our Nation, the Military and the people.

This is what happens when one continually injects toxic foreign matter into one’s head. You wind up with a plastic doll that exudes a jelly-like substance when you squeeze its soft little head.

The job isn't quite finished yet. His intent is to COMPLETELY destroy this nation and have every single citizen with their hand out to the govt.

So far we have let him get away with it. Will we stop him or will we let him achieve his goal?

The press, upon hearing this, instead of busting out laughing...they got down on their knees and worshiped 0bama as their savior.
