Nancy Pelosi Partisan Attack Caused Republican Bailout Revolt

September 29, 2008

Nancy Pelosi is a partisan ideologue shrew to her very core.  She just can’t help herself.

Even as she demanded that 100 Republicans in the House join her in a bipartisan effort, she viciously attacked Republicans and blamed them for pretty much everything.  She’s out saying, “The — what we have now is a manmade disaster, a disaster that sprang — comes from the Bush failed policies, the failure of the Bush administrations to steward our economy in a responsible way.”  And she’s ostensibly calling for bipartisan cooperation?  I don’t know any other way to put it: Screw her.

The GOP House leaders just had a press conference.  House Minority leader John Boehner pointedly stated that Nancy Pelosis’s partisan speech poisoned the Republican conference.  And House Minority WHIP Eric Cantor – holding a copy of Pelosi’s prissy little tirade – flat out stated that the reason the bipartisan effort failed was due entirely to Pelosi’s partisan rant.  You just don’t do that when you need the other side.

Republicans said they were on the verge of having the votes to pass the thing.  And then Nancy Pelosi opened her poisonous mouth and put political ideology ahead of the interests of the nation.

Some 93 Democrats – 40% of the Democrats in the House – voted against the bill.  This is a clear failure of Nancy Pelosi’s leadership.  She is the most failed House Majority Leader of the most failed Congress in History.

what are you going to do the next time you need Republicans’ cooperation to pass important legislation, Nancy?  Insult their mommas?
