Desperate Nancy Pelosi Said Speaker Boehner Went To The " Dark Side in Debt Plan ~ So Typical Of A Democrat


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told the House floor that Speaker Boehner went to the “dark side” with his debt plan that would cut government spending. When Pelosi was Speaker the national deficit went from $162 billion to over $1.3 trillion dollars.

Right before the House voted to reject a Democratic debt-ceiling plan, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi didn’t mince words.

Pelosi pulled out a Star Wars reference on the House floor, saying that Speaker John Boehner “chose to go to the dark side” and court the most conservative members of his conference, rather than work on a bipartisan compromise.

“It’s time for us to end this theater of the absurd,” she said. “It’s time for us to get real.”

The House struck down the Democratic measure, 173-246, in a vote that was designed to fail. Boehner brought the measure up under a special rule that required a two-third majority for passage.

“This thing is not on the level,” Pelosi said before the vote.

Boehner’s office said Saturday morning that the vote on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s legislation would show that the Nevada Democrat’s plan can’t pass the House, dismissing it as a “pointless political exercise.”


Pelosi: GOP Using Deficit to ‘Destroy Your Rights ’ And ‘Undermine’ Government

Pelosi: GOP Using Deficit to ‘Destroy Your Rights ’ And ‘Undermine’ Government Tuesday, July 26, 2011 By Nicholas Ballasy (

When speaking at a news conference on workers rights, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed that Republicans are using the budget deficit as a way to “destroy your rights” and “undermine the government.”

She continued, “They [Republicans] have a different vision of America and that vision of America is not one of fairness to Americans – American workers. They fear you because of their desire to have endless wealth and not take any responsibility for helping to grow the country that helped them succeed.”

Wild Thing's comment.........

Hahaha they just can't stop with the stupid attacks.

The biggest threat to our rights *IS* the Government!

What a demagogue.

I forget which video it was at YouTube, but I left a comment about Obama and I said....

" Obama has not had one single plan for the debt bill, not one. But the Republicans so far have offered TWO. "

The next day some jerk put a message to me at my YouTube page. He simply said....

" You are a C ( he spelled out the C word" )

It just shows how so many of the democrats cannot come back with an opinion, they can only resort to calling a person vile names.

I deleted it because there have been so many truly great people leavingi comments at my YouTube page and this yukky person's did not deserve to be left there.

It still amazes me that anyone pays any attention to what this blathering idiot says, much less gives it any credence.
