Pelosi acts as if she is powerless in disaster ‘Daily Show’ appearance
Watchdog ^ | 1/31/14

Posted on 02/01/2014 5:18:29 AM PST by Libloather

**SNIP**

“I don’t know,” Pelosi said when asked by Stewart why it was so hard for the government to “get a company to execute” something like building HealthCare.Gov “competently?”

“Well, let me get the House minority leader here, I can ask her, hold on,” Stewart said through laughter, mocking her answer. “Wait. What do you mean you don’t know? How do you not know?”

“It’s not my responsibility,” Pelosi said.

Typical.

When she was speaker she wouldn’t allow freshmen GOP congressmen to introduce bills or amendments only to have democrats run against them on the basis that they had done nothing in their first term in congress.

What made me even more upset is that she claimed to be blameless.

How disgusting the Democratic Party is.

She said we had to pass her bill in order to see how it worked, only to find its design is based on the use of unicorn fur combined with unobtainium.

Can we get some real authentic adult leadership in DC?

In making the statement she abdicated her office

Her humiliation can never be erased.

She is an ice cream cone fallen on a hot sidewalk.

Jon Stewart asks Nancy Pelosi about corruption in politics and says this is a problem that is both Republican and Democratic, that it isn’t a party issue that it is all motivated by the color green, meaning money.

Pelosi responds by saying we are the party of green, we protect the environment, at which the audience laughs hysterically. She then says to Stewart, “I don’t know how persuadable you are”, at which point, Stewart sort of chokes with laughter.

This business about not reading is not really at issue.

I believe that no one could read and then comprehend the meaning and nuance of the law. It is too large and the subject too complex. Expertise in infinite quantity would be required.

She was just following orders from the dear leader. Orders which must be obeyed at all times.

Maybe, but her answer was a dodge when critics attacked specific things that were in the bill and protections of life, privacy, etc. that were not explicitly prohibited in the bill (if you don’t make it clear that the government can’t do something, the entity can later do whatever it wants without needing Congress to make the change).

Basically she was saying don’t attack the legislation until it’s already been signed and the dust has settled (surrender and then complain when it’s too late). Or as Bill Clinton’s team used to say “SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP!”

Libs never take responsibility when programs/issues they pushed turn into disasters. They always blame someone, something else.

Example: healthcare.gov disaster was the fault of Republicans who wouldn’t provide enough funding [$600 million +] because they shut down the government so they could perpetuate the war on women by causing states to ban contraceptives.

Libthink: It will make your brain hurt.

==

If that doesn’t work, then they knew nothing.

Nancy didn’t know what was in Obamacare and that was why they needed to pass it. She even wanted to just ‘deem’ it passed so the Dems didn’t even have to vote on it.

“Call us responsible.” - NP
...
“How do you not know?” - JS
“It’s not my responsibility” - NP
...
“We worked very hard to honor our responsibility to pass a bill that honors the vows of our founders; life, a healthier life, liberty to pursue your happiness...” -NP

So there in a nutshell is the problem.

Idiot! “Universal health care gives you freedom and the pursuit of happiness. If you want to be an artist and so on this allows you to do so.” What about the freedom of those you have to steal from in order to accomplish that you idiot? How about those people who have to work another 100 hours a year to pay increased premiums to pay for the health care of some slacker who realizes it’s easier to sit home and paint (or play video games) than get a real job so he can pay for his own health care? That stolen freedom doesn’t matter, huh? Man, how I despise these people.

That's true, and a fair point especially with some of these laws that have hundreds of pages of appended text. HOWEVER... There should at least be an executive summary that lists all of the primary bullet points touched by the proposed bill. This law didn't even have that. They're still finding sections in there that it seems nobody even knew were there.

This wretch is a symptom. By her very position in our political life she signals the on rushing death of our nation.

We are the people that raised up a Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Jackson and a Lincoln. Today we raise up this poor creature and elect as President a negro "Community Organizer."

Almost all political types, Liberal, Conservative or so called Independent recognize the fact our nation is dying and once again she and her ilk are signs.

The Speaker was foolish for making her pronouncement even though it was true.

The fact is or at least seems to me, that what is in the law will never be known and it will be argued in court for ever.

My thought is that it will die before it fully comes to life

She is borderline senile and simply can’t mentally handle simple questions. Like Mc Cain or Harry Reid, Mc Connell.

There needs to be a mandatory retirement age, like most corporations used to have and some still do (see Cargill).

Yesterday I was at a continuing education seminar and one of the speakers discussed Obamacare. He was a Cum Laude graduate of Harvard Law School and has spent his entire twenty + year counseling businesses on health care benefits for their employees. This was a guy who was extremely bright (obviously not an affirmative action product of Harvard Law like at least one other person we know) who said the law is an unmitigated mess understood by nobody. This was a guy who is infinitely more capable of understanding it than virtually anybody else who has ever looked at it. The idea that Nancy Pelosi has any idea what's in it is a joke.

"“It’s not my responsibility,”"

So using that logic, if I light a campfire which gets out of control, ignites a wildfire which later on burns down a town, killing all the residents, it's not my fault?
