Pelosi on ObamaCare: There’s never been a more open process evah

posted at 5:35 pm on January 5, 2010 by Allahpundit

Not one, not two, but three clips for you in honor of C-SPAN having to beg The One to start keeping his campaign promises. (Thanks to Greg Hengler for the Steele one.) The second and third vids speak for themselves — especially the third — but I wonder: What’s the most surreal moment in the Pelosi clip? Is it Madam Speaker daring to tout the openness of a process marked by backroom deals, secret meetings with lobbyists, floor votes at 1 a.m., draft bills that no one’s read, and the lack of any conference committee — in other words, everything that Harry Reid once claimed to hate? Is it DCCC tool Chris Van Hollen playing revisionist historian by touting the townhalls as proof of how much Democrats love debate even though (a) Obama initially wanted ObamaCare passed in July precisely so that he could short-circuit public outrage before it built momentum and (b) the Dems spent the rest of the summer demonizing the hell out of people who actually showed up to the townhalls? Or is it Pelosi having the gall to dismiss The One’s C-SPAN campaign promise with a blithe, chuckling, “There are a number of things he was for during the campaign!” Don’t blink or you’ll miss it, but it’s there. The Democratic Speaker of the House, laughing out loud — at a press conference — at what a shameless liar Bambi had to be to get elected. There’s a Change moment if ever there was one.

I swear, I just don’t know how much more of this we can take, lol.

Lying Whore.

HornetSting on January 5, 2010 at 7:42 PM

Anyone else wondering if she’s actually clinically insane and still running the House? Years from now it’ll come out.

SCARY because this is not a drill.

Unprecedented. I dont think I ever heard that word used as much as I have in the last two yrs in my other 41 here on Earth.

di butler on January 5, 2010 at 8:15 PM

do these cretins just get out there and lie in order to give themselves stock video for the next election cycle as a means to build their next lying narrative?

MMMMMMM…..Where to start on the Botox Goddess?

1. Lying scum of a politician

2. All that is wrong with Capitol Hill

3. Look up the word “ROT” in the dictionary and see her there.

4. She’s just the latest mouthpiece for the Big Government advocates on Capitol Hill (of both parties). She wants to have the Government in charge of the entire economy in 9 days. The GOP would be okay if it took 9 years.

5. She’s from San Fran and she’ll never be voted out of office.

6. Vicious shrew.

7. She says she’s a practicing Catholic but supports the wholesale slaughter of the unborn.

8. She should have her jets sold on EBAY.

9. Steny Hoyer can’t wait.

10. Nan……Christ Matthews has a tingle with your name on it.

There……for now that’s a good start…..wait one more.

11. Sams’ Club or Costco? Who has a better on Botox by the Jug?

PappyD61 on January 5, 2010 at 8:20 PM

The sad thing about Pelosi, is that she actually believes what she says. What a dishonest house she runs.

texasconserv on January 5, 2010 at 8:22 PM

This nasty ol’ cnut of a hag should have to face a firing squad.

OmahaConservative on January 5, 2010 at 8:44 PM

How can she smile with all that botox in her face?

That’s the service.

misterpeasea on January 5, 2010 at 9:43 PM

So many lies. So little time.

The potential good is a prophylactic lesson, assuming America survives. And I am optimistic and busy.

The recovery will not be easy. An internal coup d’tat always leaves anger. Stupid sucks. Better to ostracize the fools. They never were and will never be a useful part of society. Just read a little history. American “royalists” were never “welcomed or accepted”.

So American fascists. Traitor is still a useful concept of the language. Pity the punishment has been diluted.

Caststeel on January 5, 2010 at 9:50 PM

Her rocket ship is in permanent orbit in the universe of lies.

Kissmygrits on January 5, 2010 at 9:51 PM

The thing is, she probably actually believes what she just said.

Yakko77 on January 5, 2010 at 10:25 PM

Captain, our scanners show a Peloship, bearing 281,342 range 1784. They are vector 070 at 843. Request action.

Verify load tube 3 with #2. Shields up. Stand by. Expect low crossing shot at 0821 hours.

Kissmygrits on January 5, 2010 at 9:51 PM

And is at the crosshairs from left to right close in.

This is a classical coup d’tat attempt. Do not involve the people and they will not understand that “we control”.

Sheeet, these a’holes have been doing this for a hundred years. This is the most naked attempt because traitors have the best political alignment since FDR.

Ten years and FDR failed. QED

“There has never been a more open process for any legislation”

WOW! Does she actually think that Americans like you and me might actually buy this BS? Come to think of it, what is really scary is that there is a large swath of the sheeple that will actually agree with her, mark up some posters and march on.

SHIVERS!!!

shorebird on January 5, 2010 at 11:26 PM

Here’s a You Tube video that splices Pelosi’s comments into a classic Monty Python skit (a military field test of the biggest joke ever): http://www.youtube.com/user/Optoons#p/u/0/5TK-oAKsaHM

These people are stunningly insane.

She keeps using those words. I do not think they mean what she thinks they mean.

Physics Geek on January 6, 2010 at 7:49 AM

Nancy, don’t you know that lying draws your skin tight over the back of your head and your eyes pop out?

yoda on January 6, 2010 at 7:51 AM

This woman must either be suffering from some form of severe dementia, or, she is an alien being from some far away planet or parallel dimension. The tripe flowing from the Democrats has become totally garbled and meaningless.

rplat on January 6, 2010 at 7:59 AM

The leftist Democrats are like rats skulking around in the dead of night so that no one will know about or challenge their incompetent, fascist behavior. This is America?

rplat on January 6, 2010 at 8:13 AM

One more theory on her madness…perhaps she did LSD years ago and now she is having flashbacks.

Nothing else short of dementia explains it. She lives in her own altered truth. Which, of corse, as any SANE person knows, is truth which is not truth. Just lies, as Joe Wilson pointed out…and now, of course, you can’t call them liars in the House, so I figure they might as well say whatever they want because they won’t get called on the lies. So maybe THAT’S it! Just like 3 year olds!!! They get by with bad behavior in one venue, so why not try it EVERYWHERE?

I think that’s what happening. 3 year old tactics.

manateespirit on January 6, 2010 at 8:16 AM

Again… like every single worthless idiot on the left, take the exact opposite of what they say and you’ll find yourself closer to the truth.

ronnyraygun on January 6, 2010 at 8:21 AM

Of course its an open process, she and Reid talk almost every day.

MarkTheGreat on January 6, 2010 at 8:32 AM

What a phenomenally stupid thing to say! Does she really care that little about her credibility? She’s actually conditioning people to believe the exact opposite of EVERY statement she makes.

Heckuva job, Nancy!

olesparkie on January 6, 2010 at 8:34 AM

Liar, liar; Thong on fire!

Cybergeezer on January 6, 2010 at 8:52 AM

Again, Speaker (? how can she be called speaker when she’s never there, except to slam the gavel down because is makes such a loud noise and make her feel important) Pelosi claims that the House and Senate are the most transparent that they’ve ever been in history.

That is exactly correct Ms. Pelosi, we the people, can see right through all of your the B.S. being shoved down our throats.

To prove this point when BWI and Reagan International Airports are equipped with ‘Whole Body Imagery’ equipment their image should be broadcast on CSPAN every time they travel so we can be assured they are not leaving D.C. with out money tapped to their person.

MSGTAS on January 6, 2010 at 9:44 AM

There’s never been a more open process evah

As sincere as the wrinkles on her forehead…

right2bright on January 6, 2010 at 9:47 AM

She is pitifully pitifully stupid.

If she can brush her teeth without help, I’d be surprised.

notagool on January 6, 2010 at 10:22 AM

She doesn’t believe any of what she spews. She expects the stupid American people to believe it. Sadly, many do. She got elected and so did Bozo, although I hear many people lament their vote and now repent.

(From Howie Carr’s radio show yesterday. It was great hearing about Brown’s momentum)

Pelosi is nothing more than an evil corrupt hag.

dogsoldier on January 6, 2010 at 11:10 AM

OK, I laughed and then threw up in my mouth.

drudge is redlining the 8 times that Obama promised to Cspan the healthcare hearings. He even had the bubblegum lights out for a bit.

NANCY, PUT DOWN THE FREAKING CRACK PIPE!!!!!!

la.rt.wngr on January 6, 2010 at 11:24 AM

I just made a post about Chris Matthews that fits Pelosi perfectly too!

“It’s better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you’re stupid than to open it and remove all doubt…”

She obviously was afraid we didn’t realize how IGNORANT she is and how out of touch with the real world.

SgtRed on January 6, 2010 at 11:32 AM

The Democrats have cottoned on to a concept that I once heard Frank Zappa talk about, which is: the bigger and more blatant the lie, the more likely the sheep are to believe it because they are so sure that a politician would never tell them such an obvious whopper that they figure it must be true. This is especially the case among liberals who have convinced themselves that the Democrat party is some kind of bastion of moral purity and truth.

The danger for swine like Pelosi is that when such people finally realize they have been used, they are going to be PITCHFORK angry.

There has never been a person who voted for Pelosi who wasn’t evil.

proconstitution on January 6, 2010 at 9:51 PM

This Republican candidate in her district is having a “mad as hell” moneybomb today. Hearing her lie like that made me mad enough to chuck some money his way. I hope he runs some really tasty TV ads against her in her district.

popularpeoplesfront on January 7, 2010 at 1:31 PM

Personally, I think she is being very inconsiderate to the people in her district. Repeatedly telling lies like this while on a fault fault zone could cause the earth to open up and swallow San Francisco. Hey wait a minute…
