Dressed like an elderly, upscale biker chick in a leather jacket that she accessorized with $10,000 Tahitian pearls, Nancy Pelosi recently reemerged.Â This time the House Minority Leader made an incoherent appearance on â€œReal Time with Bill Maher.â€
After sharing the apocalyptic prophesy with atheist Maher that if Republicans retake the Senate â€œcivilization is doomed,â€ the woman whose political party is currently in the process of dooming civilization uttered the following load of rubbish:Â â€œFear is a motivator, and weâ€¦â€ â€“ as in Democrats â€“ â€œare not fear mongers.â€
So Democrats, who have singlehandedly decimated any shred of hope for Americaâ€™s future, see themselves as â€œmessengers of hope,â€ and according to Nancy, â€œmessengers of hopeâ€ are what Democrats will â€œcontinue to be.â€
Oh please!Â When Nancy Pelosi says â€œhope,â€ does she mean â€œHope and Changeâ€-style hope?Â Because if thatâ€™s what the aging septuagenarian is peddling, God help us all.
Itâ€™s funny to hear Nancy Pelosi project onto Republicans the very thing she is, which is a fear peddler.
This is the woman who, in the run-up to the failed stimulus bill, sounded an alarm to warn Americans that â€œEvery week we donâ€™t pass a Stimulus package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.â€
Besides being the person who, at the time, was second in line to the presidency adding another 200 million people to Americaâ€™s census figures, Pelosi the Prophet apparently didnâ€™t foresee at the time that six years after Obamaâ€™s â€œshovel readyâ€ job-creating fiasco was passed, 92 million people, or approximately half of Americaâ€™s working-age population, would be not working.
Not to mention the fear mongering that drove the rhetoric prior to the passage of the Affordable Health Care Act. Â And speaking of healthcare reform, what exactly was the woman with the oversized gavel selling when she said that if the Republicanâ€™s â€œProtect Life Actâ€ prevented Obamacare abortion funding pregnant â€˜women [would] die on the floor?â€™
It was also Nancy Pelosi, San Franciscoâ€™s very own harbinger of hope, who warned America that if the House passed a bill that extended a federal pay freeze, it would â€œundermine the dignityâ€ of a job that is, quite frankly, anything but dignified.
Speaking of federal workers, during the impending government shutdown of 2013 Ms. Nancy warned there would be a â€œstrong negativeâ€ response from Democrats if Republicans didnâ€™t comply with â€“ you guessed it â€“ Democrats.
Then, after the ruling that employers with religious objections could elect not to offer birth control as part of a companyâ€™s health care package, it was none other than anti-fear-mongering Nancy who warned Americans that they should â€œbe afraidâ€ of the Supreme Court.
Devout Roman Catholic that she is, Nancy Pelosi even felt it was incumbent upon her to write San Franciscoâ€™s Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone to ask him not to attend the Washington D.C. pro-tradition March for Marriage event this past June 14th.Â Always the upbeat optimist, Nancy described the gathering as â€œvenom masquerading as virtue.â€
How Foot-in-Mouth Pelosi can say that Democrats are not â€œfear mongersâ€ in the same breath as saying that â€œCivilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senateâ€ does illustrate a level of cluelessness on Nancyâ€™s part that is quite impressive.
But then on second thought, maybe Pelosiâ€™s statement was actually positive, because after what Mrs. Pelosi and her Capitol Hill cronies have done to â€œcivilization as we know it, a Republican Senate jeopardizing the current state of Democrat-crafted civilization is truly a hopeful prospect.
