I tell you the words out of the mouths of Democrats Obama and Pelosi the last two days has me steaming…..I’ve already addressed hypocrite Obama in my last post.
Now Pelosi, who is 2 heartbeats away from the Presidency (God help us all), has flat out taken absolutely NO responsibility for any of the Wall Street fall out of the last few days.
Pelosi (D-Calif.) ripped President Bush’s “mismanagement” of the economy and a lack of regulation that led to the current situation.
“I think the American people have had it with this situation where the middle-income people in our country are not protected from the ramifications of the risk-taking and the greed of these financial institutions,” Pelosi told MSNBC.
When asked whether the Democrats “deserve some responsibility” regarding the economic crisis, Pelosi responded: “No.”
“John McCain said that this is a result of overregulation by the Democrats in Congress,” she added. “Either he doesn’t know what he’s talking about or he’s misrepresenting the facts as he knows them. But it’s simply not true.”
I guess leading the least-liked Congress in history and doing NOTHING….zero….NADA….about these so-called “greedy” people in the financial institutions qualifies you to pass the buck….and blame…you guessed it….BUSH!
Never mind that Bush tried to get the Congress to get a grip on Fannie May and Freddie Mac five years ago, but the Democrats in Congress are hearing nothing of it.
The Republicans responded directly, truthfully, and appropriately:
Republicans responded quickly, pointing out that a Congress led by Democrats had not helped the economy.
“The Pelosi-Obama Congress has failed to pass an all-of-the-above energy plan, failed to stop earmarks, and failed to break the partisan gridlock that plagues Washington,” RNC spokesman Alex Conant said. “If Pelosi thinks the Democratic Congress is doing a good job handling the economy now, then just imagine how bad our economy would be if Democrats controlled the White House, too.”
Further, Pelosi has also claimed she didn’t ask the corrupt Charlie Rangel, Chairman of House Ways and Means Committee, to step down. When asked, she denied….and Rangel is just smiling!
From New York Post:
Rangel himself remained mum on his sitdown with Pelosi after exiting a later, separate meeting with fellow Democratic committee members.
“I am unable to say anything,” he said before bizarrely rattling off his name, rank and serial number from his Korean War days. “Do to me what you want, I’m not talking.”
The 76-year-old politician smiled when asked if he was still chairman of the powerful tax panel.
Pelosi later denied through spokesperson Nadeam Elshami that she has asked Rangel to step aside.
And a committee member, Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.), asked if Rangel was still in charge, replied, “You’re damn right he’s the chairman.”
For Heaven’s sake with the witch hunts the Dems have had for any Republican who might have sneezed over the last few years, Pelosi should be publicly and clearly telling Rangel to step down….and then he should be ousted from Congress! That will likely happen when hell freezes over….
God in Heaven, I hope miracles occur in November and this liberal, sleezebag granny of a House Speaker is sent out on a rail.
