WATCH: Rep. Trey Gowdy Calls Nancy Pelosi 'Mind-Numbingly Stupid'
IJ Review ^ | 2/17/14 | Bubba Atkinson

Posted on 02/17/2014 7:40:10 AM PST by Nachum

If Democrats would wake up and realize what Rep. Trey Gowdy is saying is true, then we can begin to move the ball in the right direction.

Until they do that, grab some popcorn, folks. When people stop being polite and start getting real, we’ve got some real entertainment on our hands.

Well, were it not for Sheila Jackson Lee, I’d say he’s right. So in this case, Nancy is just the penultimate example of “mind numbingly stupid” [albeit a very close second]

Stupid in a knowing stuff sort of way but dangerously canny in a political/bolshevik sort of way. I’m sure Gowdy is not naive enough to mis-underestimate her.

Pelosi sure says real dumb sounding stuff and its purpose is to keep her members in line,
one thing is that she sure knew (knows) how to get her caucus to do what she wanted(wants) them to.

Not many free spirits in that group.

Gowdy is one of those who is not afraid, to call out the demoncrats.

Will we see the republican leadership come out and apologize for his comments?

With the raging Syrian civil war, I’m surprised that no one has posted pictures of Nancy with Assad praising him as a ‘Reformer’.
“We came in friendship, hope, and determined that the road to Damascus is a road to peace,” said Pelosi, who met for three hours with Syrian President Bashar Assad. (2007)

They’d do it to you.

Pelosi is a perfect example of the modern liberal woman.

1. Would be serving burgers had she not boinked a rich guy.
2. Couldn’t pass a seventh grade history test.
3. Couldn’t pass a fourth grade math test.
4. Would be rejected by the military in a heartbeat.

Summary....grifting, untalented, no-intelligence tapeworm, but votes in the accepted thoughts of chairman Obamadork.

And - a true example of the word b*tch.

Yes, that’s true but she isn’t the only one by far.

John McCain and John Kerry?

Why is there the standing perception that all legislators have to be “friends?” McCain would be “good friends” with Satan if he won a seat.

We have to repudiate this congressional culture and demand that our reps start representing the interests of their constituents, other hostile legislators be damned.

Yes. Pelosi’s face has been surgically stretched tighter than the head on a snare drum, stretching the remaining brain cells as well. You could read a newspaper through her cerebrum.

When Pelosi was speaker I spoke to a lobbyist for an industry association. Off the record this person told me Pelosi was not very bright but is an extreme partisan and will fight with whatever means are available to her. The lobbyist also indicated the power players in the Obama administration disliked her immensely but found her to be a useful pawn since she was intensely partisan and driven to further the party agenda at all costs. Furthermore, per this observer the feeling was mutual. As a side comment this Washington insider indicated the Republican strategists were not smart enough to exploit the mutual disdain between the White House and Pelosi. I believe the specific comment was something to the effect, “When you are focused on playing defense you ignore many opportunities”.

Dems can get away with being mind-numbingly stupid. They know the media will cover for them. Imagine if a Repub had said they had to pass a bill he supported to find out what’s in it.

I have raised this question (rhetorically) many times:


Of course we know it isn't the salary, but the perks and power that come with the position. How many nearly impoverished young politicians got elected, made a career out of politics, and retired wealthy?

Gowdy was not one of the twelve who opposed Boehner for leadership at the beginning of this session of Congress like Justin Amash of Michigan, Tom Massie of Kentucky and Steve Stockman of Texas.

I see him as being a lot like my congressman, making emotional statements critical of Democrats while not trying to stop the Uniparty debt increasing-tax increasing policy of Boehner as reflected in the debt ceiling vote or the Murray-Ryan budget plan of December last year that created new taxes and cut military pensions.

She is the daughter of a mayor of Baltimore, who was one of those old party bosses back in the day. I think she learned a lot from her father. Her brother was also a mayor of Baltimore. She’s from a political family.

“If Democrats would wake up and realize what Rep. Trey Gowdy is saying is true, then we can begin to move the ball in the right direction.”

That should be amended to “If the Republicans would wake up....”

Hey, it works for her with other Democrats for the reason cited below.

The following comments have been attributed to Democrat political operative James Carville (aka “Serpenthead”, an appellation given him by his own wife). According to the alleged myth-busting website Snopes, owned and operated by a leftist Canadian husband and wife team who have been often caught shading – or ignoring altogether – information inimical to their leftist agenda, Carville never said this:

(Begin Carville’s “alleged statement”.)
“Ideologies aren’t all that important. What’s important is psychology.

The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That’s why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd.

Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don’t have a clue as to political reality.

What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want.

The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn’t have a clue than there were Republicans.

Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you’re smart enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is. That’s why I’m a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.”
(End of Carville’s “alleged statement”.)

My point in bringing this to your attention?

Whether Carville said these things or not is completely irrelevant. The fact is that we are living in the midst of an era in which a distressing portion of the Democrat electorate is proving those words accurate beyond any question or doubt.

And that begs the most important questions we will ever ask: Will America – the admittedly imperfect IDEA the Founders sought to leave us – survive this very dangerous era? And will it survive long enough for some of us to continue improving this fragile experiment in the freest and most productive system in the history of the world or will we allow those whose only goal is to accrete and wield power by any and all means to destroy it and replace it with a system that has failed each and every time it has been attempted?

Each time I deal with this topic, the words of the perspicacious Baltimore journalist – back when journalism was still an honorable profession – Henry Louis Mencken come to mind: “The urge to save humanity is most often a false front for the urge to RULE!”

If we fail to correctly answer those questions in the next national elections, God help us.

But then, since we kicked Him to the curb decades ago, why would He?

Looks like we’re on our own and we probably only have one or two more chances to get it right!

Excellent post. Carville’s alleged quote really identifies the key to just about any totalitarian regime gaining power in the past 200 years or more. That, and Mencken’s quote appearing in another good post in this thread.
