Pelosi: Democrats Lost Because Bush Ran Unemployment Up To 9.5%

Of course, Democrats were in control of Congress from 2006 until not so many days ago and Bush hasn’t been President since 2008, but that doesn’t matter on Planet Pelosi:


“We still would have lost the election because we had 9.5% unemployment. Let’s take it where that came from. The policies of George W. Bush and the Republican support for his initiatives, tax cuts are for the wealth, recklessness by some,” says Pelosi.

Of course, the government manipulations of lending that created the subprime mortgage market in the name of turning housing into some sort of a social program entitlement for the poor had nothing to do with our national recession.

Nothing at all. Nope, it was letting Americans keep more of their own money. That was the problem.

    This woman is a blithering idiot and how the hell she rose to speaker is head scratching…

    Queen Nancy has gone unchallenged about her lies for far too long. Complete denial and revisionist history. Let’s examine her role in the downturn of the economy. She has a record as speaker that needs close scrutiny and perhaps investigation and prosecution.

    Sometimes it is hard to believe that this delusional idiot was 3rd in line for the presidency for 4 years.
    She didn’t seem quite so stupid the last two years. Still dangerous but brilliant compared to Obama and Biden

    Side note: I liked the other picture where she found something she enjoys sitting on.

    Tax cuts for the wealthy? The Democrats, controlling all three branches of Govt., just voted to continue those rates.

    I swear that the botox has paralyzed what little brain she ever had. Pelosi is the most embarrassing excuse for a Speaker the country has had. Thank God she isn’t in that position anymore.
