Pelosi says GOP has hijacked 'tea party' movement
OK, first I have to deal with the title of this piece. "Pelosi says GOP has hijacked 'tea party' movement". What? Are you kidding me? After an all out assault, and the overt alienation of the movement she now wants to portray her lack of attention and her lack of interaction with the voice of real Americans as another right wing conspiracy?
This is flabbergasting! Some people really have no shame! Or, maybe it is a mental disorder. I understand that congenital liars don't really understand or think they are lying. I mean it was just a few months ago where she was sniffing and crying crocodile tears over her fear of the fake / violent Tea Party people. She did not believe the Tea Party was a real movement. She described the grass roots effort as 'Astro-Turf'. She accused the participants of exhibiting manufactured rage.
She was cowering in fear, in a back handed attempt to portray the movement as violent, around the same time Patrick Kennedy was sniveling about the movement.
So now, after "The Scott Heard Around the World" she accuses the only political party willing to acknowledge and work with their outraged constituents as 'hijacking' the movement? Sorry Lady you were just too stupid or too arrogant to think that real people matter.
You can't make this up. And it gets better! On the Sunday ABC talk show she said:
The San Francisco Democrat says the tea party coalition shares some common ground with Democrats, such as their dislike of special interests in Washington. She cited public disdain for the recent Supreme Court ruling on campaign finance that allows companies and unions to spend freely on ads that promote or target particular candidates by name.What? Are you kidding me (again) ?
This is the part where I fell all the way off of the couch and then went and made a drink. This is like watching an abusive relationship. Nancy Pelosi has "Bitch Slapped" the Tea Party movement for the last year and done so at every opportunity. And now? "No baby, no. I didn't mean it. I love you". You gotta be @#$%^&* kidding me!
The Democrats and the Tea Party don't like special interests? Well? Why is Andy Stern of SEIU is the most frequent guest at the White House? Why is he on the 'Deficit Commission'? Do they not think that the Tea Party sees the Union as the special interest that they are?
Campaign finance ruling? She thinks that the Tea Party is against free speech?
All pretty unbelievable.
