Pelosi’s politicking

leave a comment »

Nancy Pelosi is a shameless witch.  Before the bailout bill vote, she took the floor and blamed Bush for the current economic crisis.  Ironically, she slipped in a line of praise for so-called Clinton surpluses.

How dare Pelosi lie to the American people at a time like this and play partisan politics?  Particularly when this problem was exacerbated by Clinton’s Community Reinvestment Act policies!  She is either painfully ignorant of history and the cause-effect relationships that led to this mess, or she is a dishonest, disgusting person.  I would venture to say it’s a bit of both.

Democrats like Pelosi have been playing politics with the war and using it to their advantage, so why would they not do the same with this issue?  They are the ones to blame for this crisis and their lie that Bush is responsible is deplorable – but not surprising.  Republicans need to grow some teeth and get out their with the facts – the fact that it was Carter and Clinton policies that led to risky lending and inflated home prices that underpinned the meltdown; the fact that Democrats like Barack Obama and Barney Frank dipped their grubby hands in the till of Fannie and Freddie campaign donations and turned around to oppose regulation that could have averted this mess.
