the exact opposite of the truth
Remember Seinfeld's Bizarro Jerry episode?
In a parallel universe, both Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden would never be taken seriously. Instead, they would be marginalized and disrespected as the brain dead anomalies that they truly are, summarily dismissed as lacking in sufficient mental capacity.
But in the fantasy world of so-called 'Democratic' politics -- where the federal government dutifully, conveniently and gleefully ignore constituent opinion and world reality -- Pelosi and Biden have risen to, God Forbid! Number two and number three in line for the American Presidency.
Oh, the pressure! Even Time Magazine claims the Democrats are "cracking." Dear God, could it possibly be? Do we dare hope, America?
Is Nancy Pelosi, the "Mother of Health Care," as Biden has described her, about to get a foot in her sizable ass, pushing her, at long last, off the national stage?
"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is “the mother of health care,” Vice President Joe Biden proclaimed Monday.The past. Right. The policies of the past were terrible. Less than 5% unemployment, a diligent foreign policy and competent leadership all the way around, in sharp contrast to Obama's flipping and flopping, insulting our allies, trampling on the Constitution, harming the environment, over-stepping his powers, actually spying on Americans. Yeah, Bush wasn't nearly as bad as the Democrats claimed.
"Speaking at a campaign event in Philadelphia for congressional candidate Bryan Lentz, Biden reworked a line of praise from Rep. Allyson Schwartz, who said Pelosi was the most powerful woman in American politics.
“I would rephrase that: the most powerful person in American politics with the exception of the President of the United States,” Biden said, according to the pool report. “The single most successful, the single most persuasive, the single most strategic leader I have ever worked with is Nancy Pelosi.”
"Biden then pivoted to continue his recent performances bashing Republicans about the economy.
“Today’s Republican Party is repeal and repeat: It is wildly out of step with the American people,” he said. “They want to repeal the progress we’ve made and repeat the policies of the past.”
“My Republican friends talk about deficits,” Biden said. “For them to talk about deficits is like an arsonist talking about fire safety. I mean, this is bizarre.”Yeah. You mean the $200 billion deficit Bush left behind? Obama, Biden and Pelosi have ballooned that bad boy into a $1.4 TRILLION deficit. And even if you add the $787 billion TARP, which Democrats love to do to say that Bush was as big a spender, you still come to the conclusion that, in a time of economic slowdown, the Democrats have contributed more to the deficit than they pledged.
Whatever happens this November, the current hard Leftward movement of the country is regrettable and unsustainable.
