"I know that Congress has low approval ratings, I don't approve of Congress, because we haven't done anything that — we haven't been effective in ending the war in Iraq. And if you asked me in a phone call, as ardent a Democrat as I am, I would disapprove of Congress as well." –Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, Speaker of the HouseSo there it is, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s acknowledgement and agreement that she is doing a lousy job but that’s not all.
Actually Ms. Pelosi is not saying that she is doing a lousy job, she is saying that Congress is doing a lousy job but in spite of Congress’ dismal performance she is on your side America.
Nice try Congresswoman but you are a part of the problem not apart from the problem. I seem to recall that it was you reveling in your 2006 victory of sweeping Democrats into majority status in both the Senate and the House of Congress based upon promises that you would end corruption in Washington and end the war in Iraq.
Just give you majority control of Congress, you said and the Democrats will change the direction of this country you said.
Now Congresswoman you’re attempting to stand aloof from Congress and the poison partisanship that you and your Democrat allies have created? I don’t think so!
Not surprisingly, Pelosi said President Bush and his Republican allies are mostly to blame. She noted that Bush has vetoed Democratic-led efforts to wind down the war, expand a children's health program and broaden stem cell research.CHARLES BABINGTON, Associated Press Writer
Ms. Pelosi you declared war on this President and attempted to subvert his power by setting up a mirror co-Presidency with Senator Harry Reid. Then you created an unworkable division between you the President, Republican members of the Senate and the House of Representatives and now you have the gall and the temerity to blame the President for the discord and the dissention that you’ve created? I don’t think so Congresswoman!
The American people are aware of your tactics of “Bushwhacking” the President on every opportunity you get. We are also aware your ideological differences with Conservatives have prevented you for working with Republicans and this President.
Congresswoman Pelosi you are not an innocent by-stander in this political calamity in America you are the political prime mover, the cause for the partisan war which rages in our government. Which you and Democrats continue to escalate.
Ms. Pelosi your little attempt of political reverse psychology is not fooling anyone; your 2006 shtick of Democrats good and Republicans bad is old hat and exposed as a lie.
Why? Because Ms. Pelosi the American people are sophisticated enough to know that the culture of corruption that you were speaking about in 2006, Democrats were a part of that corruption, and still are, not apart from it.
If you really don’t approve of Congress stop the partisan war with the President. You have that power. Either that or you’re just fishing for another angle which to come at President Bush with.
See Congresswoman we know all your moves now!
