Democrats: Hypocrisy and blame is the name of our game


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.

From The Hill (H/T: Michelle Malkin):

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.

  1. That picture is priceless…maybe the caption should be “Weekend at Charlie’s”.

    Pelosi is a sputtering dimwit who personifies the current Congress. She wouldn’t recognize a lucid thought if it walked up and slapped her on that overstretched caricature of a face.

    How’s that 71% public DIS-approval rating working for you, Nancy?

  2. Pelosi – at rare times when she is not engaged in a bug-eyed partisan rambling, likes to tout her desire to see the emergent power of “the people’s house”. Her leadership and judgement are a disaster – where was he “house” but feeding at the trough and promoting bad loans? She is a part of my motivation for my departure from the Democratic Party.

  3. kellog64 –
    I can only hope that there are millions more like you who have seen the light!
    Thanks for commenting.

  4. Wow, looks like your saviors McCain and Palin are supporting the “socialistic” move by our government to bail out all the greedy corporates that Republicans don’t think we should raise taxes on. Let’s lower their taxes so that they can give even bigger severance packages to corrupt CEOs and upper management. Now, our tax dollars are going to bail out their mistakes. Let’s lower their taxes right? That should stimulate more growth and jobs… right… more like growth in wealth for the upper crust of the companies and job losses. Thanks again Republican’ts!

  5. funwithpolitics,
    I guess you see what you want to see……The facts that you seem to want to overlook in your little assessment are that McCain and Bush called for reform to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac years ago.

    Well, guess who turned it down? Democrats.

    Guess who some of those CEO/corruptocrats are that took the money and ran….they are now on Obama’s economic advisory team…..

    While I can’t agree with all of the bailouts, I certainly don’t place ALL of the blame on Republicans.

    The root cause, however, of much of this can be attributed to the liberal policies of forcing these companies to give loans to those who could not pay them back….When free markets and rational decisions are not able to work, and liberal BS takes its place, this mess is what you get…..

    I love how every Democrat that is complicit in this, has pointed their fingers every where else…

    I also see a do-nothing Congress who won’t move one inch one the issue because “they don’t know what to do” and I see a sophomoric Presidential candidate who seeks advice from those who gamed the system, who gave him donations to urge the status quo and who are now millions of dollars richer.

  6. I blame Republicans because Bush was instrumental in eliminating down payments – which played a restrictive role, keeping home purchases available only to those who could afford them. These “no down-payment” loans brought people out of the woodwork to purchase homes that should have been well out of their price range… especially if there had been a down-payment requirement. So you’re right… Bush DID push for reform years ago – that’s what got us into this mess.

    Here’s Bush saying a year ago that it would NOT be a good idea to do what he’s doing right now.

    In short, Bush unleashed people with bad credit onto the mortgage market. THEY HAVE BAD CREDIT FOR A REASON. You are not born with bad credit – the financial decisions you make give you your credit rating. In most cases, bad credit results from people who abuse credit cards and do not pay back their debt OR who have other debts that they do not pay back. If they make these decisions about their existing debt – what would make Bush think they’ll honor a mortgage? I have to admit – it was a nice gesture at the time – but completely fiscally irresponsible. I don’t place all the blame on Bush though – it lies mainly with corrupt lenders and people with eyes bigger than their wallets. But Bush was the catalyst. And I have a pretty good feeling you voted for him twice.

  7. funwithpolitics,
    For once, we may agree on PART of the reason for this mess.

    However, I don’t blame Bush or Republicans solely for this mess ….. The adored-by-Democrats Clinton also stiff-armed lenders into offering loans to those who coudn’t afford them lest they be penalized….He also had cronies Rained and Gorelick making millions off of this system.
