Pelosi: ‘To Be an Amateur is to Cast Blame on Everyone Else’

Pelosi: ‘To Be an Amateur is to Cast Blame on Everyone Else’ June 20, 2013 - 4:33 PM By Elizabeth Harrington

(CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the definition of an “amateur” is to “cast blame on everyone else” and “to not take responsibility for what you are responsible for.”

During a Thursday press conference on Capitol Hill, a reporter began to ask Pelosi about Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio), who earlier in the day blamed the Senate for not addressing expiring student loan rates.

“Isn’t that something? I mean, what is this?” Pelosi interrupted. “This is, I’m telling you, to be an amateur is to cast blame on everyone else, to not take responsibility for what you are responsible for.”

“Doesn’t that get a little tiresome for all of you?” she said. “We’re so used to it, we don’t even pay attention.

“But doesn’t it get tiresome for you when they don’t take responsibility for the job that we are sent here to do?” Pelosi said.

Throughout his first term, President Barack Obama repeatedly blamed the “mess” he inherited from the “previous administration” of George W. Bush for a lagging economy.

Obama also faulted a series of “headwinds” for failing to boost the economy, and even blamed ATMs.

“Over the last six months, we’ve had a string of bad luck,” he said in 2011. “There have been some things that we could not control. You had an Arab Spring in the Middle East that promises more democracy and more human rights for people, but also drove up gas prices. Tough for the economy, a lot of uncertainty.”

So he’s got to take his rage out on Pelosi for calling him an ‘amateur,’ man even I would call him a ‘professional’ con-man.

So, the real job of the Speaker of the House is to manage the business of the Senate. Have I got that about right, Nancy?

That raises the bar for vocabulary malpractice even in a liberal.

Does this mean pelosi is going to take responsibility for obamacare when it fails to be affordable? aka ... the Affordable Care Act. Can’t wait for those affordable provisions, in the bill, to kick in.

“.... When was the last time a Democrat ever accepted responsibility for anything?”

Easy, if anything happens that is good, even if it can in no way be connected to actions of the democrat...and even even if the good thing happened despite the actions of the democrat.

Granpappy Rat to little wats: Well, it was a long time ago y’here, but once upon a time a man a named Al Gore told us a true that “During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet.”

Yep, sonny, he dang invented the internet.

Say...did I ever tell you little wats the one about how Hillary was named after that great explorer Sir Edmund Hillary (though I don’t rightly know how that one a worked, seein’ how she was a born in ‘47, er...before he climbed the mountain in 53)...?

Well is you equate taking responsibility with taking credit.

Let’s see; they take the credit for ending the Great Depression. (Lie)

They take credit for the longest economic expansion in US history. (Lie)

They take credit for the civil rights act. (Mostly a lie)

Everybody else feel free to add on.

Looks like a Republican could make a commercial with Obama clips blaming Bush over & over, followed by this. End it withClinton’s “what does it matter?” quote. May not have to do much else to win the election.

Pelosi: ‘To Be an Amateur is to Cast Blame on Everyone Else’

- - - - -

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy.”

This revealing comment reinforces a patriarchal (or in Pelosi’s case matriarchal) attitude Congress has taken with the American public: What lurks within the House and Senate health care bills will be revealed in the fullness of time, and it’s really good for us if we only knew better.
