A Lost Cause If Ever There Was One

Nancy Pelosi is trying to get some help on becoming more likable:

“Lawmakers say she is consulting marketing experts about building a stronger brand. The most prominent of her new whisperers is Steven Spielberg, the Hollywood director whose films have been works of branding genius. Lawmakers said Spielberg has not reported to Pelosi with a recommendation.”

I’m not sure why it takes a “marketing expert” to tell her the obvious: Stop being  a dishonest political hack.

And stop making ridiculous statements… People tend to frown on that.

The following are six stunningly obtuse statements from Pelosi from just the past couple of years. She should avoid making statements like these in the future:

1. “We have to pass the (health care) bill so you can find out what is in it”.

This stunning demonstration of political condescension was meant to calm the fears of the public – trust themthey know what’s good for us…

What lurks within the House and Senate health care bills will be revealed in the fullness of time, and it’s really good for us if we only knew better.

2. “This initiative is funded by the high end – we call it Astroturf It’s not really a grassroots movement.”

Just gut-wrenching hypocrisy -Astroturf is all the Dem Socialists know, so naturally she accuses her political opposition of what her side does in spades.

3. “Every week we don’t pass a Stimulus package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.”

Yeah, she actually said that.

4. I’m confident…I’m hopeful  that we’ll have a (health care) bill as a Christmas present for the American people.

This, after polls were showing a majority of the American people were against it, after several weeks of bruising (for Dems) town hall meetings in which citizens voiced their opposition to the bill, and after hundreds of thousands showed up in Washington to protest the bill…

5.. You go through the gate. If the gate’s closed, you go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we’ll pole-vault in. If that doesn’t work, we’ll parachute in. But we’re going to get health care reform passed for the American people.

At the time, 61% of the American people were saying it was time for Congress to scrap ObamaCare.

6.“Unemployment benefits are creating jobs faster than practically any other program”

Imagine how many jobs we could create if everyone quit their jobs!    Wait…..

To quote Doug Powers:

“In the real world, demonstrating lunacy of this magnitude is known as a “cry for help” and an intervention involving large nets, straight-jackets and electric shock therapy is in order. But not in Washington, DC, where free-range crazies are allowed to pick pockets, loot futures, and all too often get re-elected”.

Tragically, she was re-elected, and House Dems voted to keep her as their leader.


Seems to me they all could use some help “improving their brands”. What that generally means for Dem Socialists is, “better messaging”…or in common parlance, “better lies”. Which brings us back to what I said at the beginning about dishonest political hacks. I guess Democrats call on  marketing experts to help them with their lies.

I think it’s a lost cause, myself.

    Then again, she could hardly be less likable, so she’s got nowhere to go but up.

    Spielberg has stated that he will NOT help pelosi.
    “He doesn’t work with politicians…only works in the movie industry.”
    Saw the article at Breitbart’s Big Hollywood site….but now I can’t find it.

    I’ll find her more likable when she packs her office into a box, and is escorted from the building by security guards.

    Maybe we can bring back Leni Riefenstahl to make a film for Pelosi.

    “Every week we don’t pass a Stimulus package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.”

    Unfortunately, she isn’t one of them.
