Pelosi: ‘Many Members of the Republican Caucus Don’t Believe in Government’
CNS News ^ | January 3, 2013 | Penny Starr

Posted on 01/05/2013 5:08:53 AM PST by IbJensen

(CNSNews.com) – In an interview on Thursday with National Public Radio, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that many Republicans do not “believe in government.”

"There are many members in the Republican caucus who do not believe in government,” Pelosi said in an interview with NPR’s Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep. “And bless their hearts, they act upon their beliefs.

“So day to day, we vote here on issues that eliminate government initiatives for clean air, clean water, food safety, public safety, public education, public transportation, public housing, public health, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security.

"They don't believe in a public role,” Pelosi said. “And if you don't believe in a public role, then why do you even have to have taxes to pay for it? ... They're anti-government ideologues, and that's what the speaker has to deal with."

Pelosi also had praise for the “Grand Old Party,” which she said has made “enormous contributions to the success of our country,” but that the party has changed to be one that wants to destroy government.

“While we may argue about the size of government, the Republican Party has not been a party that says, 'I want to destroy government,” Pelosi said.

She said Republicans should “take back your party.”

“The country needs more than one-party dominance, as much as I believe the Democratic Party is the party for the middle class. ... We need to have a marketplace of ideas,” Pelosi said.

Calling it the least-important question Inskeep asked during the interview, Pelosi would not say if she believed she would become speaker of the House again.

This female from the city of fruits and nuts is, herself, a serious nut case who worships at the altar of government: HER government.

Most Republicrats are NOT conservatives anymore. Rather they've morphed into 'moderates' (today's meaning: stands for nothing) and will vote whichever way the wind blows the money into their pockets.

I, personally, have grown to despise this evil government whose business is to wreck our nation, its economy and our personal lives.

By definition...anything “reported” on National Public Radio is propaganda. They are the MSNBC of the radio airwaves.

Want proof? Tune in at the top of any hour and listen to their “news”. Whatever is going on...it’s women and minorities most affected.

Really...try it.

We need to have a marketplace of ideas,” Pelosi said.

Like the idea of a smaller, Constitutional government? I have yet to meet a Conservative who has the same views as an anarchist. Not even Ron Paul wants "no government. I would love a government with finite and enumerated powers.

I hate to be unkind, but I have a nagging suspicion that Nancy is not always truthful. There, I said it.

Because these are all FAILED programs and need to be eliminated, Nancy.

This old, dried up , botoxed, hag, has totally lost her mind. The biggest problem is that she should be working on the Block in Baltimore with the rest of the old B-girls instead of on Capitol Hill;.

Pelosi, like a lot of women with enough money and a lot of free time seems to think we 'poor" people need her guidance and wisdom.

What they fail to realize is WE ARE NOT YOUR HOBBY!!!!

We are , still a free people and we intend to stay that way.

I think Pelosi knows exactly what she's doing. It's like what Sun-Tzu said about knowing the enemy. If they are quick to anger, then annoy them.

Pelosi says stuff like this to purposely rattle Republicans. She says they don't believe in government to try to get them to line up on TV and radio and praise their love for government.

This is how she "smoked out" Boehner the first time.

I think she used to work on “the block”, frankly would not surprise me. My friends from B town tell me she was a nut before she moved to Cal. I believe her dad was a former Mayor of Baltimore who had less than a stellar background of integrity.

Exactly what I was thinking. Don't forget to throw in those 'rules for radicals' too. We are in a political war with these dang dems. It's time to fight fire with fire.

Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Fienstien, the news media.

What is the common denominator here? they are all democrats.

democrats want to make the government all powerful and at the same time take every one of our individual rights and freedom. Democrats want the government to own everything ( that's called socialism).Everything democrats do is to empower government and at the same time dis-empower the individual. the individual is small and already powerless and the government is so huge and powerful and idiot democrats think the government needs to be made bigger and more powerful. wtf is wrong with these idiots?

When will we realize that the threat to our freedom and survival is the democrat party?

The only happiness I get is when I know these goons I named will one day meet the fate Chavez has

And sadly there is no Republican who will call the dems out - go on a Sunday morning show and declare that their are two kinds of dems, those that despise the Constitution and those that have never read it and have no clue what's in it. And it would be the unvarnished truth!

Because the Pubs don't keep on hammering the message that the dems are waging war against the rights of Americans, they keep losing. And the reason they don't hammer that point home because the GOPe, too, is waging the same war against Americans.

"There are many members in the Republican caucus who do not believe in government,”

Damn right, they don't. Our Founders didn't either. That's why they wrote a Constitution to limit the powers of government.

Nasty Pelosi is a small minded, fascist petty tyrant with delusions of godhood.

Nasty Pelosi doesn't 'believe in government'.

Nasty Pelosi worships government.

Pelosi does worship government, the bigger the better, as long as she retains power and (of course) as long as she is exempted from the very rules she and her Party impose.

Nancy, why do you hate the Constitution?

Because it interferes with MOB RULE.

Nancy, why do you support stealing from productive citizens?

Because that is how the MOB supports itself.
