You’ll have to forgive me. I neglected to mention Nancy Pelosi’s recent interview in which she claimed that a large contingent of the GOP is “anti-government, anti-science and anti-Obama” and that while Democrats opposed much of Bush’s agenda, Republican obstruction to President Obama is “something quite stunning.” She capped off the interview with this howler: “We did not treat President Bush this way.”
The truth is – that was just too much gut-wrenching, lying hypocrisy for this girl to take. Look – I have to think about my health when I blog, and I don’t need my blood pressure going through the roof.
Warning: What follows may cause nausea, vomiting, and dizziness:
“What’s interesting to me is that Democrats and Republicans know what they believe,” Mrs. Pelosi said on MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown.” “They know what they believe, and that’s what’s happening in Congress … what’s happening here now is we have a large segment of the Republican party that is anti-government. We don’t want any more government than we need, but they’re anti-government, anti-science and anti-Obama.”
“They have a trifecta that is going,” she continued. “Now, I say to the Republicans: Take back your party … you come with confidence with the debate that goes on and try to influence the decision, but to obstruct every initiative that the president’s put forth on jobs and then say, ‘Why don’t we have more jobs?’
We do have more jobs, but no thanks to the Congress of the United States.”Mrs. Pelosi argued that while Democrats opposed Mr. Bush on many issues, including the Iraq War and his efforts to privatize Social Security, they also worked together on many issues such as the Wall Street bailout and energy legislation.“We did not treat President Bush this way,” she said. “We thought we had a responsibility to work with the president to get a job done for the American people and we did. This obstruction to President Obama is something quite stunning. It’s something quite different.”
Revealing Politics created the ultimate answer video to Pelosi’s bogus claims – and I thank them for it, because now I can talk about what she said without retching.
Sure, there were plenty of Republicans who said they wanted President Obama’s policies to fail, most notably Rush Limbaugh who was immediately lambasted and of course called a racist. Funny thing though, a Fox News/Opinion Dynamics poll in 2006 showed that 51% of Democrats didn’t want Bush to succeed. Wait. Isn’t that worse than what Limbaugh and other Republicans hoped about Obama? But, again… you can’t say anything critical about Dear Leader Obama.
So go ahead Nancy and keep telling yourself that Democrats were super duper nice to President Bush. We’ll be here to set the record straight and remind you of the truth.
To compliment the video, I recommend this trip down memory lane at Zombie’s “Hall of Shame” with the constant death threats at the heinous anti-Bush era protests. There is nothing – I repeat nahhhhthing – any conservative group protesting Obama has done to even begin to compare.
