May 04, 2014, 11:35 am Pelosi: GOP suffers from poverty of ideas
By Kyle Balluck Greg Nash
House minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in an interview broadcast Sunday that personal attacks against her mean nothing, adding that Republicans are suffering from a poverty of ideas.
Speaking on MSNBCs Up with Steve Kornacki, Pelosi said she thinks shes targeted by Republicans because shes effective.
We got the job done when we had the majority even under President Bush , but further under President Obama, she said.
It means nothing to me, she added, referring to the attacks. I consider the source and I consider them to be stuck in a poverty of ideas. They have none, and thats where they had to go.
I think people are tired of that, they want to know what are your ideas about job creation? They have none, she said. What are your ideas about taking us forward on protecting the environment? Investing in the future? Passing an immigration bill They have no plans. They dont govern. They have no initiatives for the future, so they make personal attacks.
I think most people want to know what do you have to offer? she said.
Pelosi said personal attacks against her, as well as criticism of the administrations handling of the terrorist attack on Benghazi, are all diversionary and totally unimportant and I couldnt care less personally about them.
Were about what we have to offer to the American people. And nothing demonstrates the distinction more, and thats what they want to try to divert attention from, than the two budgets that are coming forth, she added.
Every time they attack me, I raise more money, she said. Im in the arena, Im here to fight, she added.
Just delusional ones.
The Constitution is so limiting.
Ideas? Here are the ideas of Pelosi and the Democrats:
We believe in Marx, Freud,and Darwin We believe everything is OK as long as you dont hurt anyone to the best of your definition of hurt, and to the best of your knowledge.
We believe in sex before, during, and after marriage. We believe in the therapy of sin. We believe that adultery is fun. We believe that sodomys OK. We believe that taboos are taboo.
We believe that everythings getting better despite evidence to the contrary. The evidence must be investigated And you can prove anything with evidence.
We believe theres something in horoscopes UFOs and bent spoons. Jesus was a good man just like Buddha, Muhammed, and ourselves. He was a good moral teacher though we think His good morals were bad.
We believe that all religions are basically the same-at least the one that we read was. They all believe in love and goodness. They only differ on matters of creation, sin, heaven, hell, God, and salvation.
We believe that after death comes the Nothing Because when you ask the dead what happens they say nothing. If death is not the end, if the dead have lied, then its compulsory heaven for all excepting perhaps Hitler, Stalin, and Genghis Kahn
We believe in Masters and Johnson Whats selected is average. Whats average is normal. Whats normal is good.
We believe in total disarmament. We believe there are direct links between warfare and bloodshed. Americans should beat their guns into tractors. And the Russians would be sure to follow.
We believe that man is essentially good. Its only his behavior that lets him down. This is the fault of society. Society is the fault of conditions. Conditions are the fault of society.
We believe that each man must find the truth that is right for him. Reality will adapt accordingly. The universe will readjust. History will alter. We believe that there is no absolute truth excepting the truth that there is no absolute truth.
We believe in the rejection of creeds, And the flowering of individual thought.
If chance be the Father of all flesh, disaster is his rainbow in the sky and when you hear
State of Emergency! Sniper Kills Ten! Troops on Rampage! Whites go Looting! Bomb Blasts School! It is but the sound of man worshiping his maker.
We know one thing for sure and that is Miss Pelosi does not herself live in a state of poverty. On the contrary, she’s one of the wealthier members of congress. Ah, to be a liberal. Bankrupt of ideas but not in the wallet.
Poor Nancy: she can’t open her mouth without losing face. She suffers a poverty of mental acuity.
Poverty of ideas does not compare to your poverty of decency and truth and honesty. You, Pelosi, are full of corruption and evil. It is people like you and your political clan that got our nation into the current mess.
Nancy, you and yours have plenty of ideas, it’s just that they’re harebrained. You were effective passing legislation that has led to the destruction of the healthcare system and record unemployment and a GDP growth rate of .1%, which would be negative were it nor for the excess spending for 0bamacare, a program that overwhelmingly, people hate. The guy who shot up Sandy Hook school was effective too. But things are infinitely better now that he’s stopped and dead.
Poverty of ideas? The Dems make every issue about race, class warfare, gender, and sexual orientation. And to rile up their base and keep the low-infos on the plantation, they depict conservatives as racist, anti-women, anti-gay, and pro-rich.
If the Republicans had any sense they would ridicule the Obama, the Dems, and their media acolytes for their over-the-top hypocrisy and deception. Even ridicule the stupidity of their supporters. Get under their skins.
Pelosi, you have a severe poverty of brain cells, but being in your state, you cannot possibly know that.
What does Pewlosi know of poverty? Since she’s been in Congress, she’s gone from pretty much a nothing net worth to over $150 million in net worth.
Not bad “pay” for being a lowly public servant. And yet, where’s the Congressional investigation on how a woman, as vacant as a rock, could possibly cash in like this?
Hey, yes they do have ideas. Tax cuts for the rich, go to war in Syria and Iran, export more 'free trade' jobs, deport all cheap labor, reduce voting opportunities for democrats, replace Obamacare with nothing. Or so it is said to fill the vacuum.
And the democrats suffer from the idea of creating poverty, of the two I will gladly take the party that is lacking in ideas of how to take my money and property.
The left excels at inventing problems then demanding the Republicans come up with so-called solutions. Global warming and health insurance are classic examples. Before, health insurance was expensive and out of the reach financially of some. Now it’s prohibitively expensive for all and degraded in coverage and increased deductibles. The Democrats call that a remedy. The government should leave free people and the free market the hell alone-that’s the solution.
