Pelosi: Obama can't control the weather
The Hill ^ | 9/5/12 | Mike Lillis

Posted on 09/05/2012 11:58:04 AM PDT by ColdOne

Rain concerns forcing the Democrats to move President Obama's convention speech to a smaller venue Thursday night won't dampen spirits or dilute the president's message, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday.

The Democratic leader said the weather is "a higher power" that the president can't control.

"It's rain, what can we do?" Pelosi said at a breakfast sponsored by The Christian Science Monitor. "There are some decisions that are made from a different place and whether it rains or not is not in the president's control."

He can stop the rain - if he really, really tries to do so.

Hah!

Well..whats’ up with that, Nancy? Isn’t he the one who promised to lower the sea levels?? If he can do that, clearing the skies should be no problem. What gives, Botox Queen??

Funny.... four years ago I heard how Obama was going to stop the planet from overheating and the seas from rising, and that Bush and Rove were responsible for Hurricane Katrina.

I suggest it’s 10,000 empty chairs (well, 10,001, since Obama will be there) that’s forcing the venue change, not a minor chance of rain.

So, just to review, Obama will fix Global Warming, but stopping some rain is above his pay grade.

Got it.

“There are some decisions that are made from a different place and whether it rains or not is not in the president’s control.”

Control of the venue to make it appear filled with
enthusiastic followers is however.

These one dimentional characters are so pathetic.

Why would anyone want to be lead by pathos?

Considering Granny Granholm said God sent Issac to wipe out the Republican’s in Tampa it is indeed ironic that her god can’t stop a little rain. I thoiught four years ago was the day the tides stopped rising, guess not.

I thought he could :). Oh, it was 4 years ago that he had the power to part the seas. Maybe he lost God’s favor because of all the policy attacks against Christians obama has implemented in the last 4 years.

Bush, they said, had the HAARP machine and directed Katrina into New Orleans, and it was bequeathed to Obama. But the local weatherman said there is no increase in possibility of storms in Charlotte. Obama said he would fill the football stadium. Now he realized he cannot do it and claims a storm is running them inside. The only storm I see coming is the shitstorm Obama would see if he could not deliver on his promise to fill the 70,000 seat stadium.

Did anyone ask her to spell “weather”. I think it had more to do with whether enough would show up rather than the forecase weather, which by the way was not that bad.

So they're admitting Obomas 2008 campaign was all a lie? I'm impressed. (She must have gotten caught off guard?)

Pelosi ought to remember that Congress directed the Commerce Department to manage that weather modification capability of the Executive branch.

A while back Rahm the ballet boy made reference to the rain stopping and the sun shining the minute der Fuehrer stepped off his campaign plane.

Gee! If he can stop the rain and part the clouds then, why he could control the weather conditions now.

More disturbing, if he can control the weather then he must hate the gulf coast because he didn’t turn back the hurricane.

Which is it you democrat butt boys? Can he lower the sea levels and control the weather OR NOT?

The weather shouldn’t have mattered. Enthusiastic Obama supporters wouldn’t have minded listening to Obama’s acceptance speech in the rain. Do football teams have trouble attracting full crowds in the rain? Never.

Obama’s problem is that he cannot attract large crowds, and it was a mistake by the Obama team to try to fill a 74,000-seat stadium for an Obama speech, even though they had weeks to prepare.

If Obama truly believes Democrats aren’t hardy enough to put up with a little rain to listen to one of his speeches, what does he think will happen if it rains on Election Day in Democratic districts?

Emanuel went on to point out Obama could have worked for a high-powered law firm out of law school, but “he picked the South Side, with steelworkers.”

I would fear lightning strikes too if I was Obama and leading this group that openly says there is no God, Jerusalem is not the capital city of God's chosen people, to murder the unborn, to steal from those that work to give to the lazy and slothful, to corrupt our children and promote homosexual lifestyles further corrupting the moral base to civilization and the making war on the family, to redifine marraige and turn from the institution ordained by God, to divide the people and nation based upon race, faith, and wealth, to turn the nations back on Israel and support the muslim agenda and aid Iran in their evil wish to destroy the Jewish people the way Hitler attempted to, support the communist agenda, godless agenda, to ignore our christian heritage and foundation, to stifle our free speech and to disarm us so as to bring about another civil war, to take away our freedom and waste our national fortune and treasure and place the nation in jeopardy!!!!!

Yep, I would worry about lightning coming out of a clear sky too!

Just listened to an obama butt kisser congratulating him for “protecting” the people from lightning and storms by moving it inside. In other words, he said the people were too stupid and would have sat in a lightning storm, so obama had to take charge and protect them.
