Botox Brain Nancy Pelosi: Obama Should Unilaterally Eliminate The Debt Ceiling By Declaring It Unconstitutional

Beltway Confidential

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., thinks that President Obama should unilaterally eliminate the debt ceiling, rather than negotiate with Congress to spend more money when the United States hits the debt ceiling later this year.

“I would like to see the Constitution used to protect the country’s full faith and credit, as the Constitution does,” Pelosi told reporters Wednesday. She was endorsing the idea that Obama should use the 14th Amendment — which states that “The validity of the public debt of the United States . . . shall not be questioned” — to circumvent House Republicans who want spending cuts in exchange for another debt ceiling hike.

“I think he should [declare the debt ceiling unconstitutional],” Pelosi said, though she wouldn’t predict Obama’s move. “I’m in a different branch of government. In the minority, in the House. What do I know about what the president’s going to do?”

Pelosi is in a different branch of government — the only one that has the authority to “borrow Money on the credit of the United States,” as Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution establishes. And she is in the minority, which increases the likelihood that Obama will have to agree to spending cuts in order to get a debt-ceiling increase.

She's failed in her leadership position of Speaker and Democrats reward her by making her House Minority Leader. What is it with Democrats and failed leadership?

She is rapidly catching up to "Hair Plugs" Joe in the, Open Mouth Insert Foot, competition.

Every time I read a Pelosi comment like this, I think about how many times she has been re-elected, and by large majorities.

Does anyone who lives in her district pay attention to any of the drivel she passes out and stupid comments she makes?

I suppose the next action out of Pelosi et al will be to declare The Constitution unconstitutional. George Orwell sure had some accurate insight(1984). He just was off by 24 years.
