It wasn’t so very long ago that our number one Aristocrat babe, Nancy Pelosi, questioned a President’s competence when she offered these words of wisdom:
“The emperor has no clothes,” Pelosi, D-California, told reporters on Thursday. “When are people going to face the reality? Pull this curtain back.”
Her remarks drew sharp criticism from then-speaker DeLay, suggesting that “Nancy Pelosi should apologize for her irresponsible, dangerous rhetoric,” and that “[s]he apparently is so caught up in partisan hatred for President Bush that her words are putting American lives at risk.”
I wonder if we could go out on a limb here and offer that Emperor Barack Obama might also frequent the very same tailor…just a thought…but I digress.
Pelosi (not being able to quit while she was ahead) went on in this CNN piece to beclown herself further while educating us on how to calmly and professionally disagree with a President’s agenda:
“His activities, his decisions, the results of his actions are what undermines his leadership, not my statement,” Pelosi said. “My statements are just a statement of fact.”
Thank you Nancy. As the top Jester in this Emperor’s court, you have helped us describe the Obama Presidency better than we ever could have described it on our own. Now, I will grant you, the 8 month run of total control over America has been a good ride for the Democrats. They have gotten lots of donations, plenty of press time, and a plethora of new friends and cute little stick buddies from all the special interest groups long-starved of any feeling of relevance in that privileged little world of Congressional group-think. The flipside, of course, is that they have accomplished the exact opposite of what they’ve promised their minions all these years they were in the minority while offering “We, the People” an opportunity to see and hear and feel and…SMELL…just what a Liberal agenda can DO to our lives and our families and our neighbors and to our standing in the world. They have ALSO taught us how NOT to disagree with our colleagues within our own party.
In the latest episode of Democrats eating their own, we are presented with Harry Reid (fellow senior court jester in Emperor Obama’s court) when he accused “those protesting President Barack Obama’s health-care proposals of being “evil mongers.” Umm, Harry? There are Democrats that oppose this nonsense too…not just us dopey redneck nazi Republicans wearing brownshirts…just thought I’d remind you of that. And besides, aren’t you a little busy just now fighting amongst yourselves over the Emperor’s agenda? You really shouldn’t worry about the minority in Congress…we seem to be the LEAST of your worries. heh.
Striking in the political re-education of America, thanks to Democrats, is how quickly they have taught us that spending our way out of a problem is not the answer. We fell for it on the stimulus, were hoodwinked into it with that cap and tax insanity (though it started sinking in that something was amiss), and are being told it’s the only solution now with healthcare (like we want to go through a DMV-like line to get a heart transplant…phht). I’m fairly certain at this point, however, that the Democrats are starting to appreciate our lack of being entertained. A very good thing.
As with all honeymoons, Emperor Obama’s is finally over and what lies ahead is the crushing defeats his party will be made to suffer at the hands of an angry mob of American citizens that will leave their pitchforks at home and bring their number two pencils with them to the polls in 2010…
Thank you Democrats for teaching us how to squander a majority by spending our money almost as fast as you spent your political capital. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out-we grown-ups have a huge mess to clean up just now, and we wouldn’t want to waste time patching you up.
Oh, and Maxine? You were right…the chickens HAVE come to roost babe…I’m just sayin’.
