Stewart Laughs in Pelosiís Face After She Admits She Doesnít Know Why Obamacare Site Failed
Mediaite ^ | January 30, 2014 | Noah Rothman

House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sat down with The Daily Show host Jon Stewart on Thursday for a contentious interview. The interview became tense when Stewart attempted to get Pelosi to explain why government appears to function so poorly to the outside observer. When Pelosi attempted to explain why this was the case, Stewart became even more agitated.

“Right now, we have a school of thought in the House Republican caucus that is anti-government, anti-science, anti-Obama,” Pelosi said when asked about the nature of governance in Washington. “They have a trifecta that just enables them to vote against everything.”

Stewart said that Democrats are then required to make a stronger case. He said that Democratic governance now appears “chaotic” and their execution of legislation appears to “lack efficiency.” When Pelosi again blamed Republicans for this condition, Stewart became even more agitated.

When he asked why it was so difficult to get a company to execute the Affordable Care Act’s insurance exchange website “competently,” Pelosi replied, “I don’t know.”

“What do you mean you don’t know? How do you not know?” Stewart asked laughing.

Pelosi called the failed website “shameful,” but noted that it is improving....

They have not lost him until he calls her a lying B**** on his show. Until that time he still will vote for democrats and encourage others to do so as well.
Everything is a joke to him well I am not laughing this is real life and Jon Jon is part of the problem.

Their tactic of shifting the blame is wearing extremely thin. Alinsky was wrong after all.

Pelosi stealthfully sneaks into our island every year around Christmas time , stays at resorts that charge her over $10K per night for the best villa suite that she likes and then lurks off to a local noted plastic surgeon to get God only knows what done to her face . All this costs our county 10’s of 1000’s of $ , reported when media pries it out of them , but otherwise nobody says a damn thing about it . We are not even her constituency . I have the utmost contempt for this woman . She is the penultimate hypocrite .

She is really stupid. I can’t believe she is House Minority Leader. Democrats need to get her out of that position ASAP. I mean it is good for us but she is just plain stupid.

Often I have wondered about her intelligence because she does come of as really stupid. On the other hand, she became speaker and she hammered them to get her agenda passed. That couldn’t have been easy.

Maybe it’s just an act she puts on or those stupid enough to believe her.

That video blew my mind for a second there. Pelosi’s hands creep me out and so naturally they catch my attention, anyhow, she’s moving her hands all around and brings them together and then I hear a crunchy, cracking sound!??? I thought my gawd, woman! you’re cracking your knuckles over and over in front of the world but then I realized it was her bracelet hitting the desk. She’s a trip, I really think she’s an android or something similar.

“Right now, we have a school of thought in the House Republican caucus that is anti-government, anti-science, anti-Obama,” Pelosi said when asked about the nature of governance in Washington. “They have a trifecta that just enables them to vote against everything.”

let's break down the liberal speak:

anti-govt: lawless barbarians
anti-science: uneducated neanderthals
anti-0bama: racists

culture of death continues calling names instead of addressing the issues.

she needs to be in prison

a website is trivial to implement... tho the convoluted rules might cause some issues, they shouldn’t have such obvious security and performance problems.

ESPECIALLY for $460 MILLION dollars ... ffs

Pelosi has nothing to say if she’s not blaming someone else for the things she, and her party are guilty of.

The reason Pelosi doesn’t know is because she has avoied reading it, that way she can still claim “ignorance” while the rest of already knew that.

‘Science’ is a magic word among libs/progressives these days. It’s used to end a discussion.

You mean the science that proves that when an egg and a sperm come together in the womb, if you let it grow, it will become a human being? Or is it the Dem's science that says it is a blob of tissue, no human resemblance whatsoever?

BTW, I was told that exactly by Planned Parenthood when I was 17 years old, 43 years ago!

Actually, she is permeated body and soul with dogma.

Her method of action is to put the dogma to work via legislation.

Incapable of reason, she recites the dogma 1. 2. 3. 4. 5......by the numbers precisely as recorded with no variation.

If NBC had two brain cells to rub together, they would hire Jon Stewart to do “Meet the Press’.

Lots of conservatives would watch just for the weirdness of watching an intelligent liberal ... Jon Stewart, Jonathan Turley, and Nat Hentoff are the last ones of a kind...
