Obama’s ‘I am Nancy Pelosi, and Nancy Pelosi is me’ Moment

October 16, 2009

You want to know who Barack Obama is?  Just look into the wide, crazy eyes of Nancy Pelosi for your answer.

Barack Obama went to San Fransisco and said:

“Let me talk to you — Nancy Pelosi is tough,” the president said during a fundraising appearance at the Westin St. Francis Hotel. “I want everybody to know that.  I mean, every day –- every day –- she is subjected to constant criticism and griping.  And then there’s the other party. But with style and grace, but most importantly, with steely determination, she does not back down, she is there doing battle each and every day on behalf of not only her constituency here in California, but people all across America who are looking for a fair shake, who are looking for a decent job, who are looking for quality health care, who want a good education for their kids, who want a planet that they can pass on to their grandchildren and their great-grandchildren.  That’s what Nancy Pelosi is all about.  We could not have done any of the stuff that we’ve done this year without one of the best Speakers imaginable.”

Obama added: “I know sometimes you’re not a prophet in your own land but I want everybody to understand how special Nancy Pelosi is.”

I agree with the last sentiment: Nancy Pelosi IS special.  It is rare to find someone so dishonest, so radical, and so demagogic.

Obama isn’t just giving a few complimentary words here; he is embracing her person and her policies.  He clearly is stating that he believes Pelosi is someone like himself, and that all of her critics are evil as she goes about doing good and wondrous things for the world.

When you think of Barack Obama, just don’t forget to think of him as someone who is just like Nancy Pelosi.
