Some politicians don’t have to worry too much about what they say or do, as long as they don’t get caught doing something illegal. Their electorate is either completely asleep or they will vote for them no matter what happens.
That seems to be the case with Nancy Pelosi. Many people who are not in left-coast California say it isn’t really part of the United States Of America. The funny thing is, if they keep bringing in more hispanic non-citizens, that may be true sometime soon.
California operates to the beat of its own drum, and so does Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi just smiles her manufactured smile and nonsensical words flow out of her mouth. Californians don’t seem to care – or maybe most just aren’t listening.
Some call Pelosi’s opinions a “suicide mission,” while others say she is just plain bizarre, but Pelosi one thing you have to say for her, is that she’s not afraid to say anything, even if it makes no sense to other mere mortals.
Speaking to CNN’s Candy Crowley on “State of the Union,” Pelosi said, “We are celebrating the fact that we have over 7 million signed up. Democrats are proud of the additional 3.1 million young adults who have been able to get on their parents’ health insurance policies, along with the 5 million who have been signed up on Medicaid, bringing the numbers of people with affordable insurance to nearly 15 million. It’s really pretty exciting. We are very proud of what we have accomplished.”
Many of her fellow Democrats, thinking about their own precarious position on Obamacare and what it means for their reelection – or ouster – have distanced themselves from Pelosi, president Obama and Obamacare. Pelosi says there are “a couple hundred” House Democrats who are proud of the state of Obamacare.
It should be noted those figures are in phantom numbers created by ‘The world of Nancy.’
Pelosi reluctantly admitted that, “a few” Democrats are distancing themselves from her pet project, “… but that’s the exception. Democrats embrace the Affordable Care Act. We’re very proud of it.” Her usual disingenuous smile played to her audience.
A few might be stretching the truth more than just a little.
Obamacare actually has quite a few critics on the left side of politics. Of course, some of them are looking forward to elections, so it is hard to tell what they really think.
In ‘Nancy’s world,’ if you don’t agree with her, you become the enemy, no matter where you stand on the political divide.
Pelosi denounces critics of the law, even former Obama administrations officials, which include White House press secretary Robert Gibbs and former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
Trying to understand Pelosi’s mind could tie you up in knots for months. In ultra-liberal San Francisco, politics is often treated as a big experiment with OPM – Other Peoples’ Money.
Pelosi and her multi-millionaire husband, Paul, have the wealth to withstand anything she proposes for the rest of America.
It comes as no surprise that Pelosi voiced her views on liberal CNN Sunday with a sympathetic ‘journalist,’ famous for with her beloved Barack Obama.
Pelosi has refused interviews with Fox News and other conservative talk shows over the years. She only accepts interviews with sympathetic hosts. It was no surprise that she was speaking to Candy Crowley, who stopped presidential candidate Mitt Romney in his Benghazi comments during a debate in 2012, swinging a point over to Barack Obama. It turned out that Candy was wrong, and Romney’s comments were correct.
Crowley brought Pelosi down memory lane regarding her past as speaker of the House. “I actually did not necessarily want to be leader again, but they wanted me to be, so here I am.” It was a brazen statement that Crowley did not challenge – naturally.
Polls show that Pelosi could easily take 80 percent of the vote at her next election this November.
San Francisco must really love Nancy, either that or she has a magic wand that mesmerizes her subjects.
