Nancy Pelosi Failure of the House

Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House and Democrat, has balls. Today she said, “You know, God bless him, bless his hear, president of the United States, a total failure, losing all credibility with the American people on the economy, on the war, on energy, you name the subject.”

While I agree President Bush will go down in history is one of the worst presidents of all time, Nancy’s soapbox isn’t exactly standing on the strongest of soapboxes. The president only has a 29 percent approval rating. Congress, led by Nancy Cajones Pelosi, only has an 18% approval rating. I couldn’t find the statistic to prove this but I think more people think Elvis is alive than approve of the Congress.

The congress is supposed to be a check and balance to the president’s power and yet our congress continually rolls over and plays dead every time our constitution is threatened. Our congress has failed to pass a meaningful immigration law or a responsible energy policy. Alternative energy tax incentives are going to lapse and the end of this year because Congress, as led by Nancy, hasn’t been able to pass legislation to extend the incentives. Nancy’s congress can’t get energy extensions at a time when the cost of energy is at an all time high. This session is also the longest in 20 years that Congress has gone without passing any legislation on spending.

What has Nancy I-can’t-believe-I-still-have-a-job Pelosi been up to, instead of passing valuable legislation, that is? Well she has successfully prevented impeachment proceeding of Bush. She started that in 2006 with the comment of, “you never know where investigations might lead.” Wow. Maybe the would have led to impeachment of a terrible president and the removal of power from a whole host of people who haven’t done their duties to the United States of America and it’s citizens, for example . . . Nancy don’t-look-at-the-facts-because-I-won’t-like-what-you-will-see Pelosi.

Nancy party-before-America Pelosi has also been actively trying to get more Democrats into congress. She says that it part of her job as Speaker. Quite frankly, as a thinking American, I don’t care if there are more Democrats or Republicans. Nowhere in the job description on a Congressperson does it read, “get more of my party in power.” She, and the rest of the slackers taken together we like to call Congress, have duties to perform to make our country better. In the end, Nancy if-its-good-enough-for-me-than-good Pelosi has been more concerned with personal and party power and we The United States of American, have suffered for her success.

Exactly! Thanks for the comment and I am very interested in your blog. When I'm not gossiping like a girl, I tend to dabble in politics myself...like my article on abolishing the electoral college. I Love this blog...adding it to my bloglist. Keep Me Informed!!

I so agree with you! Everybody was so excited when the Dems won the Senate and we all expected Nancy Pelosi to jump all over Bush and Cheney, but they didn't. I don't know why, but I've heard it had something to do with not attacking a sitting President during wartime. WHAAAAAAAT???? The War is why he needs to be impeached.

Ever wonder why it's not o.k. for terrorists to come over here and kill 3,000 innocent people, but it's o.k. for us to go into their countries and kill millions of innocent people in retribution? How many Afghani/Iraqi children's deaths does it take to even the score?

Right on! Ms. Pelosi is a prime example of what's wrong with the left. If you do nothing, you do nothing wrong. They forget nothing gets done right. Democrats were so stupid to pick a leader that far to the left, of the Dems aren't loaded with moderates. Just imagine; she's third in line, Bush, Cheney, Pelosi. I just got a shiver up my spine.

George Washington once said that the political parties would have a ruinous effect on our nation. Nancy Pelosi's inertia, cowardice, and cold, hard political calculations are but one more example of why he was right.

Loving this blog-- as soon as I saw the topic of this post I was hooked :) It's interesting to note how UNpopular Pelosi is now, after all the excitement at her induction.

I go to a very liberal, top-tier school and one of my professors referenced an interesting study that had been done a few years back. The students were asked to raise their hands (in a large lecture) as to whether they considered themselves republican, democrat, or independent. With the visual poll, the class was predictably very liberal. However, on another day, a similar poll was taken, only this time in writing. The results came out much more conservative.

My personal conclusion? Far-left liberals are loud and obnoxious. It's not always the loudest that are in the majority.

Here's the problem with those Congressional ratings. While you'll find plenty of people who gripe about Congress, you'll discover that a lot of them like their Congressional delegation but hate the other ones.

In other words, their folks are OK, but everyone else is a bum. And, so, the cycle continues...
