House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told Democratic House members at a meeting Thursday morning to “embrace the suck” and encouraged enough members to back the budget deal on the floor to allow passage, according to an attendee of the meeting.

“We need to get this off the table so we can go forward,” Pelosi told her members, according to someone inside the closed meeting of the caucus.

This coming from the same politician who insisted that the bill be passed quickly before the American people could find out what was in it.

They get to keep every previously enacted assault on American liberty and she’s complaining that there aren’t new assaults. So her idea of a cut back is to not have new liberties crushed.

Thanks for you surrender to, to, something or other.

Money quote: "Democrats are fuming that the bipartisan budget deal doesn’t extend unemployment benefits for more than a million Americans."

Actually that is a big fat lie. They just want the issue. See IF unemployment benefits are extended the U3 Unemployment numbers will shoot up drastically climbing above 8% or more because it will show MORE PEOPLE ON THE UNEMPLOYMENT ROLES. And democrats don't want that happening in an election year. So they are stamping their feet and pretending they are mad when in fact they are happy to have the issue to rant about!

I think there was a misunderstanding.

She probably said: “Embrace, THEN suck.”

Nasty Pelousy doesn't know what "embrace the suck" means, and hasn't earned the right to use the phrase.

It means to wholeheartedly throw oneself into a situation which sucks, but is necessary (or at least, unavoidable). “The suck” is the hardship (physical, mental, emotional) experienced by people who are trying to do something difficult, and worthwhile, and dangerous. Soldiers are a prime example of such people.

We need to get this off the table so we can go forward

translates to:

We need to pass this budget to further our agenda and to help mask the affects of that agenda. As with the ACA, this budget will only affect the little people.

I’ve heard some pretty crude and vulgar expressions in my life, most of which left no doubt what they meant. I don’t think her remark was intended to be taken as crude as it sounds, but can someone let me know what the hell she’s talking about?

I’m sure she meant “suck” as in “not too good”. Then again, who knows. Liberals are truly bizarre people.

One Interpretation

Unofficial slang term used by the Marine Corps. Defines any situation in and around a war time conflict where conditions are undesirable. Also known as "The Shit." "Welcome to the Suck..." or "You are in the Shit..

It’s a common expression among distance runners. In that context it means you should understand going in it will hurt, and don’t shy away from the pain because it’s a prerequisite to achieving your goal and validating previous training efforts.
