This just cracked me up. Nancy Pelosi, due to over excessive government spending, saw her majority in the House dissolve, and saw her lose her status as Speaker of the House. By the way, that title is #3 in line for the presidency, lest you forget.
So the new Republican House is going to play hardball with the president on setting the budget. Setting up a showdown that is likely to shutdown the government. Pelosi's response?
“It is a failure. It’s really a failure to say we have taken the leadership of the Congress of the United States and the first thing we’re going to do is shut down the government to the detriment of our people, to our security and to our country’s future,” she told reporters.Huh? Good! The Republicans should take credit for this because it is exactly why the American public voted the Republicans into power!
Dear Nancy,Pelosi went on to say:
We are sick of government overspending. If the Republicans have to force a government shutdown to reign in the spending then we, the people, are all for it. This is why you lost in November. Not only are you a tax-and-spend liberal, but you are blatantly clueless to the fact that the philosophy runs counter to mainstream Americans' beliefs.
We The People
“I would hope that instead of having ultimatums and statements of ‘I’m not going to do this’ or ‘I’m not going to do that’ that we will really have a process, go forward with an approach that talks about how to keep government open, not how we intend to shut it down,” she said.WHA?! WHA WHA WHAT?!? You mean like the Democrats did with the health care debacle? Funny how Nancy disagrees with her own tactics when she is no longer in the majority and they are used against her.
Hopefully this kind of thing will cause her to lose her seat in 2012. And take another bunch of her fellow Democrats with her.
