Skip to comments.Pelosi: Obama can't control the weather
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."

thats a stunning admission.
he’s just a minor prophet after all.
He can stop the rain - if he really, really tries to do so.
I think they are protesting too much...
Could they really not find enough bodies to fill a stadium? at their CONVENTION??? with a sitting president?
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.
Empty chair syndrome.
So, just to review, Obama will fix Global Warming, but stopping some rain is above his pay grade.
“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.
,,,,,, but he can control the sea levels ??? ,,,, amazing .
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.
A crystal chamber must’ve taken away his powers!
Stay out da Bushes!
What does a pro-gay-marriage pro-abortion Pelosi know about a “higher power?” From her beliefs one have to guess, “not much.”
Controlling the weather is Algore’s job. Barry needs to speak to him about it. Supposedly, Al is a Democrat. I’m sure Al can help him out.
That makes Pelosi a denier and a GW skeptic.
I find Pelosi’s lack of faith...disturbing.
Who was it that accused Bush of having his hand on the weather machine?
- Rahm Emanuel
When we have Obama... who needs God?
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)
Nancy Pelosi, another arrogant east coast blue blood aristocrat transplant. Like Barbara Boxer etc.
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.
No prophet, America's loss.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)
LonePalm, le Républicain du verre cassé (The Broken Glass Republican)
Pelosi ought to check with the Commerce Department on the weather modification capability of the Executive branch.
No worries. The styrofoam columns will fit just fine inside.
Considering that Bush and Cheney could steer Huricane Katrina right smack into New Orleans.
when will this rancid canker cease to exist on our plane of existance?
Truly disgusting deceiver
If he can walk on water, why can’t he stop it??!!
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?
FUBO & FAD
Only Republicans can control the weather.
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?
“The president arrives, the rain stops, the sun comes out. Coincidence? I think not.”
- Rahm Emanuel

- Rahm Emanuel Mayor Rahm Emanuel opened his introduction of Obama with a riff on his power to deliver: “The president arrives, the rain stops, the sun comes out. Coincidence? I think not.”
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.”
Pelosi: Obama can’t control the weather
Oh ye of little faith! ( sarc.)
Yep, I would worry about lightning coming out of a clear sky too!
Hmmm, an “Act of God”?
I guess He wasnt amused at the Dems taking Him out of the platform.
Nancy P-brain gets her meds mixed up once in awhile.
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.
But....but....we were told he would stop the rise in the oceans and he would heal the planet.
If there’s one thing he can control its the amount of flies that will infest the area.
