Does Nancy Pelosi always have to be a jerk?

posted at 8:01 am on June 9, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

Politico went out of their way this week to run one of those touchy-feely, tug at your heartstrings stories which is sure to have us all feeling better about the future, singing Bob Dylan tunes and doing trust falls outside of the congressional cloakrooms. It was the 25th anniversary of Nancy Pelosi serving in Congress, and Steny Hoyer joined in with Speaker John Boehner to mark the moment.

After a generation in the rough-and-tumble world of Capitol Hill, few things in politics surprise House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi these days.

But she was caught off guard Thursday when the House temporarily stopped its work so House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) could pay tributes to her on the House floor marking her 25th anniversary in Congress.

It was a rare, warm-and-fuzzy moment in the normally partisan chamber as Boehner and Pelosi shared a hug and Hoyer recalled the first time he met Pelosi (in 1962, in the office of former Sen. Daniel Brewster, D-Md.).

Awww… that’s just touching, isn’t it? Politico goes on to talk warmly about the many compliments being showered upon everyone involved and the general sense of “What a Wonderful Life” which imbued the hallowed chamber. And John Boehner actually was very flattering (in a professional way) and cordial to his rival. But I was watching the video this morning and caught the end of former Speaker Pelosi’s remarks. The video follows, along with a partial transcript. You can fast forward to the 13:15 mark to hear them, unless you’d prefer to sit through Steny comparing Pelosi to Thomas Jefferson.

So I thank you Mr. Speaker for your kind words. While, as you said, we did not always agree on taxes, we did at one time when President Bush was President. And we worked together at that time when we worked on his stimulus package which was tax oriented, you’ll remember that, and it was good for the country, and it was a good model for us to go forward.

Really? Everyone in the chamber is in the middle of singing your praises, including the leader of the other party, and you have to take a moment out to get in a shot about how “wrong” he is about not wanting to jack up everyone’s taxes? For an occasion such as this you might think that simply thanking your family and all of your constituents for their many years of support would suffice. Or, if you wanted to get in a good natured shot at the opposition, something along the lines of, “Watch out because I’ll be looking to take that gavel back this November” would do. Everyone would have laughed and nobody would have criticized you for it. (In fact, she did include a comment about it “not being fun” to give the gavel back to Boehner after that, but she could easily have left it there.)

She also apparently didn’t think the list of credits tacked on to her name were sufficient, since after she had been referred to as the “first woman Speaker of the House” she jumped in to add, “First Italian-American Speaker of the House, first Maryland Speaker of the House, first California Speaker of the House… many firsts.”

OK. We get the point. You’re a legend.

My dad used to be fond of using a phrase from his days in the Army which referenced people who were so messed up that they could, “*** up a soup sandwich.” I still don’t really know what that means, but today I think it really applies to Pelosi.

I’m not quite sure why it should be celebrated that any politician is in Congress for 25 years. Elected officials should serve a few terms then have to go home and work in the private sector, living under the same laws that they passed.

You don’t know anything about her, do you? It’s a bit long but just for starters, here you go again:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

For years, Pelosi has pushed for federal transportation earmarks to build and extend a lightrail project in her affluent San Francisco district, securing more than $890 million for the project between 2004 and 2011. Interestingly, Pelosi and her husband own an office building, valued between $1 million and $5 million, located at a prime distance from one of the planned lightrail stops. If the project is completed, the Pelosis could see the property value increase by as much as 150%, according to Schweizer.

In 2006, Pelosi also managed to get a $20 million earmark for waterfront redevelopment just blocks away from the same office building. In another instance, she got $12 million for a beautification project abutting another property owned by the Pelosis.

Pelosi’s real estate portfolio has also gotten a boost from her friends in Congress. In 2010, Rep. Bernie Thompson (D-MI) got a $800,000 earmark to upgrade the Napa Valley airport. Pelosi, who helped Thompson get his position as chair of the Homeland Security Committee, owns or has stake in multiple properties that would benefit from the project.

1. She believes the opportunity for wealth and prosperity is available for ALL if big government gets out of the way of the MIDDLE CLASS by not redistributing their taxes to the UPPER 1%. The same upper 1% that’s now buying government officials all over the country. Wealth redistribution and cronyism, fundamentally democrat.

2. She believes the engine of this country is the MIDDLE CLASS. Unlike the other party who believes if we somehow excuse the upper 1% from paying any taxes, they will reward the unwashed masses by throwing a few dollars around their way. Tax the rich.

3. She believes big government should stop attacking women by enacting laws that takes away their freedom to choose.
Sheer lunacy
4. She is not anti immigrant. Unlike the other party that’s proudly anti immigrant.
Sheer lunacy
5. She doesn’t believe in attacking every nation just so we can enrich our government t**t sucking defense contractors.

This one is especially golden given Pelosi and her fellow democrat’s penchant for pay to play/syndicalist ways.

In a word, yes. Her dumbest comment of the week was that the bishops don’t represent the Catholic Church.

bw222 on June 9, 2012 at 10:22 AM

1. She doesn’t believe the opportunity for wealth and prosperity is available for ALL so big government needs to get in the way of the MIDDLE CLASS by redistributing their taxes to the BOTTOM 50%. The same BOTTOM 50% that’s sucking up vast amounts government handouts.

FIFY. My wife and I fall into the top 25%, and we cleared just over $70,000 last year. Not rich. Link for you If you don’t bother to go to the link, it shows that the top 50%, those with adjusted gross incomes above $32,396, paid 97.75% of federal income taxes. Which leaves the bottom 50% to pay 2.25% of all federal income taxes.

2. She believes the engine of this country is the MIDDLE CLASS. Unlike the other party who believes if we somehow excuse the upper 1% from paying any taxes, they will reward the unwashed masses by throwing a few dollars around their way.

See the chart I linked to above. The top 1% (above $343,927 AGI) pay 36.73% of federal income taxes. So the answer very obviously is to make them pay more so that the bottom 50% doesn’t have to pay anything! Genius!

3. She believes big government should stop attacking women by enacting laws that takes away their freedom to choose.

But she believes big government should be making their choices as to what their healthcare will be, what to eat, what to drink, etc. Oh, and she pays the women in her office less than the menfolk. Nancy has her own personal war on women!

4. She is not anti immigrant. Unlike the other party that’s proudly anti ILLEGAL immigrant.

FIFY, again. My grandparents immigrated to this country, my mom’s in the 20′s and my dad’s in the 50′s. In fact, my father is an immigrant because he wasn’t born here. However, they went through the process to get here LEGALLY. They didn’t go to Canada or Mexico and just jump across the border.

5. She doesn’t believe in attacking every nation just so we can enrich our government t**t sucking defense contractors.

Oh give me a break. The world looks to us to do stuff when disasters or calamities break out. If we took our ball and went home, the world would go to hell in a handbasket. Who would respond when the shit hit the fan? The UN?

Those 5 are good enough for me.

You have never heard of the Malocchio - The Evil Eye?

I have spent enough time around Americans of Italian descent to recognize the Molok – the curse in practice LOL

Here’s how it works you don’t mock God. Nancy gives George W Bush a compliment out of envy or whatever nasty sentiment she harbors, but she’s not sincere doesn’t mean it she means the opposite.

While concording with my eminent Italian colleagues Erlampo and Sbadiglio … I wonder if perhaps it *might* be an anglicised spelling of the Italian word “malocchio”, as pronounced “malook” or “malokk” in the dialect of Neapolitan or Pugliese immigrants to America. “Il malocchio” is the evil eye (qui faccio le corna, eh! I ward it off with a gesture and a bunch of peperoncini – chilli peppers). There is an analogy in the word “finook” (as used in the Sopranos), Neapolitan-American for the Italian word “finocchio” … I won’t say what that means, eh-eh.

Lowereastside on June 9, 2012 at 8:46 AM

Yeah, you’re right. Her net worth increased 62% between 2009 and 2010.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) saw her net worth rise 62 percent last year, cementing her status as one of the wealthiest members of Congress.

Pelosi was worth at least $35.2 million in the 2010 calendar year, according to a financial disclosure report released Wednesday. She reported a minimum of $43.4 million in assets and about $8.2 milion in liabilities.

For 2009, Pelosi reported a minimum net worth of $21.7 million.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) also remained a multimillionaire. He reported that his minimum net worth in 2010 was close to $2.1 million, with zero liabilities. His 2009 minimum net worth was more than $1.8 million.

5. Halliburton! Halliburton! Halliburton!

Uppereastside on June 9, 2012 at 9:11 AM

A reminder from the Right Wingers at NPR:

December 24, 2003

Current criticism over Halliburton’s lucrative Iraq contracts has some historians drawing parallels to a similar controversy involving the company during Lyndon B. Johnson’s administration.

Nearly 40 years ago, Halliburton faced almost identical charges over its work for the U.S. government in Vietnam — allegations of overcharging, sweetheart contracts from the White House and war profiteering. Back then, the company’s close ties to President Johnson became a liability.

-snip-

The story of Halliburton’s ties to the White House dates back to the 1940s, when a Texas firm called Brown & Root constructed a massive dam project near Austin. The company’s founders, Herman and George Brown, won the contract to build Mansfield Dam thanks to the efforts of Johnson, who was then a Texas congressman.

After Johnson took over the Oval Office, Brown & Root won contracts for huge construction projects for the federal government. By the mid-1960s, newspaper columnists and the Republican minority in Congress began to suggest that the company’s good luck was tied to its sizable contributions to Johnson’s political campaign.

-snip-

Brown & Root also became a target for anti-war protesters: they called the firm the embodiment of the “military-industrial complex” and denounced it for building detention cells to hold Viet Cong prisoners in South Vietnam.

Today, Brown & Root is called Kellogg, Brown & Root — a Halliburton subsidiary better known as KBR.

Conclusion: it’s only Bad when the Republicans do this stuff. But it is perfectly OK for us Democrats to do so.

cozmo on June 9, 2012 at 11:44 AM

…I thought you don’t have to contact a physician immediately…until 4 or 5 hours has elapsed…

Oh, she doesn’t have to always be a jerk.

But she finds it saves time, letting people know the real her

Does Nancy Pelosi always have to be a jerk?

Short answer is Yes. Tuna does however not always come in a can.

Bmore on June 9, 2012 at 12:12 PM

Don’t bother, uupereastsidesideways has his own war on women going on. This is camouflage.

cozmo on June 9, 2012 at 8:52 AM

Boy, isn’t that the truth! Why, I saw one of his old comments to a woman on yesterday’s QOTD thread. I’m surprised he’s still around. Oh, well,….

Does Nancy Pelosi always have to be a jerk?

Well, she is the 2nd dumbest elected official in this nation.

locomotivebreath1901 on June 9, 2012 at 12:23 PM

Nancy needs to hang around forever as the representative of the left. How else will we learn just how far down America has fallen?

Don L on June 9, 2012 at 1:02 PM

Yes.

Theophile on June 9, 2012 at 1:20 PM

Well one good thing I can say about her is that she is an unapologetic advocate of the middle class. You know that class that is slowly becoming extinct due to the other party’s hatred of it.

Your meme is a big fat lie.

You’re also delusional, but I like delusional leftists.

Schadenfreude on June 9, 2012 at 1:36 PM

On your final comment, channeling your dad. A soup sandwich is supposed to be the most f***** up thing there is, so it takes someone of supreme talent to take what is supposedly the ultimate in f*****up and turn it into something worse. Don’t know where it originated, but heard it a lot early in my military life, not so much in the later years.

You’re an ignorant, detestable f@#$wit. That’s the nicest way I’d care to phrase it.

“delusional leftists” = redundant

Yep.

gkaz on June 9, 2012 at 3:24 PM

She’s a certifiable mental case.

UnEasyRider on June 9, 2012 at 3:39 PM

It’s in her DNA. Reminds me of that scorpion who hitched the ride with the frog to get across the water then stung the frog cuz she just couldn’t resist …

Pelosi – CZAR of LIES

It was a rare, warm-and-fuzzy moment in the normally partisan chamber as Boehner and Pelosi shared a hug

I hate Boehner.

Elected officials are ELECTED officials. That’s all she is. She has “accomplished” nothing apart from being elected… oh, and destroying the country to the best of her ability.

What’s to admire or acknowledge? A random passing of time?

I hate Boehner.

Nope. Sometimes she’s an a$$hole.

What a self congratulatory lot.

Guess there’s no decorum in calling a spade a spade, eh Johnny?
If only weepy could acquire the ‘my friends’ we’d be good as gold…

Hey, Ohio, send.him.packing.

mickytx on June 9, 2012 at 6:22 PM

Soup sandwich. I like that one.

Goes nicely with the not having opposable thumbs.

Speaking of which, she has been a thumb in our collective eyes.

F.U.Nan

mickytx on June 9, 2012 at 6:34 PM

Yes, she always has to be a jerk, though I would use the b word instead. It’s a shame that mediocrity such as her gets to be a millionaire in this country, much less a higher-up in the federal government. She’s not too bright, on top of that.
