Pelosi on the ObamaCare ruling: “Total victory”

posted at 10:01 pm on June 28, 2012 by Allahpundit

I figured we’d wind down D-Day with a little extra motivation for everyone to turn out this fall. Who better than Nancy to provide it? The image of her gloating when the House passed ObamaCare, waving around that giant ceremonial gavel like it was the Lombardi Trophy, alone probably accounted for half the seats the GOP picked up in the midterms. A few more soundbites like this can probably deliver Ohio and Michigan.

Not enough motivation? Here, let me make it extra special:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday credited the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) with driving the success of the Democrats’ healthcare law – even from his grave…

“I knew that when he left us he would go to heaven and help pass the bill,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. “And now he can rest in peace. His dream for America’s families has become a reality.”

Forget what I said about Pelosi’s “victory” comment being a strong motivator; this is a strong motivator. Although, to be honest, I hope she’s right. As an atheist, I have a keen interest in the bar for admission into heaven being low just in case I’m wrong about the hereafter. If a guy can leave a woman to drown and still make into heaven, where he’s free to beam socialist inspiration into the minds of Democratic leaders, then dude, I’m in like flynn.

Oh, more good news: Pelosi forgot Brian Terry’s name on the House floor today during the run-up to Holder’s contempt vote. Maybe Teddy can straighten her out during their next seance.

You don’t make deals with the devil from heaven Nancy. Teddy went the opposite way.

Flange on June 28, 2012 at 10:05 PM

You missed the part where she explains that we smallfolk don’t need to worry our cute little heads about the Supreme Court calling our brave and strong President’s law a “tax”; that’s just Washington-speak, you see, and it’s really unfortunate but necessary that the Court had to go and confuse by using that word.

I wish I were exaggerating.

If Teddy Kennedy’s in Heaven, there ain’t no one in Hell.

I would gladly spend eternity in Hell if I could watch her and Teddy Kennedy be Satan’s play thing.

After all, don’t you know Nancy? You have to spend eternity in Hell to know what’s in it.

I figured we’d wind down D-Day with a little extra motivation for everyone to turn out this fall.

Pretty shameful how the GOP has milking this today. They never wanted to stop Obamacare- they just want to fundraise off it.

Just like Romney demagogued Perry over Social Security, a program the Republican Party also aimed to repeal when it was first passed, future Repubics will attack each other over who best can administer the new Healthcare system.

sartana on June 28, 2012 at 10:09 PM

“I knew that when he left us he would go to heaven and help pass the bill,”

Actually Big Ted went south and got someone else to help pass the bill.

Bishop on June 28, 2012 at 10:09 PM

“I knew that when he left us he would go to heaven and help pass the bill,” Pelosi.

I highly doubt that Teddy found himself in circumstances of being able to help, nor do I think a law designating money for abortion would gain any traction in heaven.

natasha333 on June 28, 2012 at 10:16 PM

Dear GOP,

This is your last chance. If you blow this, I’m out and you need to be destroyed.

What is it? Repeal ObamaCare on Day 1. Don’t worry about replace, don’t worry about anything else. We will do everything we have to to drag your sorry asses over the line this fall, including electing Mitt Romney.
In return this is what you will do:

Instead of adjourning for pictures and tea and cake to celebrate getting your pathetic asses elected to 2 or 6 years on the government teet, you will immediately pass a one line bill that says, “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (and whatever statute number has to be included) is hereby repealed.”

That’s it. Nothing more, nothing less.

Since Congress meets before Inauguration Day, Obama will still be President. Simply hold the legislation at the desk so the 10 day pocket veto clock doesn’t start. If other parliamentary BS is needed, just do it.

Then as soon as Mitt takes the oath of office, before his speech that no one will care about or remember, walk the bill up to him at the podium to sign.

If this does not happen, the GOP must be destroyed and a new party built to replace it. We’ve tried the carrot approach (votes, money, volunteers) to change your behavior. Now it’s time to show you the stick.

No more, “oh the other guys are worse” scare tactics. That might be true but it doesn’t mean you are any good.

This is your one job, do it or join the Whig Party in the dustbin of history.

It has nothing to do with them having a spine. I submit many, if not most of them, are all for the bill. They simply couldn’t vote for it because it was so unpopular. They very well may get their chance to do something about it next year. I’m not optimistic.

I just don’t see why we have to wait to be betrayed yet again by this party. A new and more massive betrayal is in the works:

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/12/19/1046943/-Video-surfaces-of-Mitt-Romney-opposing-total-repeal-of-Obamacare?via=blog_1

Mitt Romney is on record that by saying “I will repeal Obamacare”, he means to fix it- keep the good and throw out the bad.

Here’s his surrogate and chief Health Care adviser Norm Coleman saying the same:

http://hotair.com/archives/2012/01/25/romney-advisor-come-on-obamacare-wont-ever-be-repealed-in-its-entirety/

Says the former Speaker of the House tossed by voters from that office because of her support for Obamacare.

Now you know how socialists define and measure “victory”.

farsighted on June 28, 2012 at 10:32 PM

This is easily the most damaging development to the US since Fort Sumpter in 1863. The US as we know it will not last a generation. What needs to happen never will, because if such people already exist in sufficient numbers to correct this mistake, then we would never would have found ourselves in this position in the first place. In other words: That we are here is already proof that we cannot win.

Hell, we could easily back this up a bit and echo the word a Czech dude once said [and I paraphrase] about a nation made of people who could elect an Obama to begin with, is in itself a death-nell for that nation.

Though not to go full Eeyor, we still have a chance. Slim and daunting, yes. But is it not quite zero. We have no choice but to back Romney now. That includes you Paulians too!!!! So get off your high horse already!

Sometimes, the consequences of people’s choices are actually visited on the people that made the choice. Ironic that we would call that “fair” in any another context. :) Not always. Speaking of prayer, one could ask for a kind of crop failure.

But, the good news is that as free people, we get to live our lives independently, making choices for ourselves …

mitt doesn’t want my vote or need it. i’m the lunatic fringe now.

renalin on June 28, 2012 at 10:44 PM

I rarely post; however, I am a avid reader and lurker of Hotair and today I need to rant. So, here it is. Not sure why I’m writing this, but it makes me feel better to do it. Please bear with me.

John Roberts is a good man. I would even say that he is often a conservative.

But he is a don’t-make-waves conservative. In its very nature, conservatism has an element of not making waves. But no “movement conservative” (i.e., true conservative) could have done what Roberts did today. Here I am talking not about the health bill specifically but his reasoning behind upholding it. I’m convinced that he just didn’t want to make certain media and political bullies dislike him.

What we need, in EVERY elected office and judicial appointment, is what I will call testicular conservatives, not don’t-make-waves conservatives. In other words, conservatives who have the intestinal fortitude (others may wish to use stronger language) TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT, regardless of what others think.

Our heroes of the past all had it — Patrick Henry, George Washington, Sam Houston, Ronald Reagan, etc. They didn’t care what people thought. They weren’t tricky or gimmicky (that was left to the likes of Franklin Roosevelt, LBJ, Kennedy, Clinton, and Obama … that is, Democrats). They just called ‘em as they saw ‘em, took a stand (often at the risk not just of their personal popularity but of their very lives), and fought for what was right.

Ironically and sadly, most of our Republican male elected officials don’t have the cajones needed. Alito, Thomas, and Scalia all do, as do some Republican governors, but increasingly our elected women have “bigger testicles” than our men do. Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, et. al.

It’s time to stand up and fight.

We need to win in November, yes, but EVEN IF WE LOSE THEN, we need to keep fighting.

One of my great heroes is Winston Churchill. He was famous for saying “Never give in. Never, never, never, never given in.” Here is the entire quote:

“Never give in — never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”

Good words to remember, and some context makes it even more powerful. He said that in 1941, when the outcome of World War II was far from certain and the worst fighting was still to come. Hard to imagine now, but there was a very real chance that Britain and all of the civilized world would be destroyed and lost forever.

He said it in front of a bunch of school boys at his alma matter, the Harrow School. Before he was introduced, the boys sang their school song which had been updated to include a stanza in Churchill’s honor. One of the lines said, “Though long the fight / we know that right / Will triumph in the end!”

Our call to action today is to remember that the fight is long. I think one of our problems as conservatives is that we all want to cast one magic vote and go back to our own business. Well, for the rest of our lifetimes we do not have that luxury if we want to save this country. It’s going to require voting in every primary, runoff, and election, and voting for the most rabidly conservative who’s running.

The time for squishy moderates is over. Too much is at stake.

We can do it. It’s just going to take a long time and be difficult. But we must never give in and never give up! We owe it to the great heroes of our nation’s past who themselves never faltered.

Thanks for letting me rant.

Maybe Teddy can straighten her out during their next seance.

Ted the K was a notorious mangler; amongst others, he mis-Identified congressman Marty Meehan while introducing him at a campaign event!

I wonder what that clown got under the table for his vote?

He is now a partner in Venable LLP’s Legislative and Government Affairs group. I imagine that partnership might be the answer.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday credited the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) with driving the success of the Democrats’ healthcare law – even from his grave…

“I knew that when he left us he would go to heaven and help pass the bill,”

Speaking as one who actually believes in Heaven, Madam Congresswoman, that’s not where murderers go when they die.

mitt doesn’t want my vote or need it. i’m the lunatic fringe now.

Totally understand! I too feel quite depressed and dejected, almost to the point of giving up. But fight we must. If WE don’t then the Left will REALLY feel empowered more than they already do!

Great post! I can’t help but believe that late at night after several drinks and cigars even Winston said (to himself maybe)…what in the hell are we going to do? I think we are all wondering this tonight. Tomorrow we start again!

Thanks for that and you should post more often. Glad you are here.

My hat is off to Pelosi and Reid. They are vicious ideologues who refused to take no for an answer and knew that once this puppy was out the door it wasnt coming back.

They also knew that their opponents were gullible suckers.

I hate the woman, but until conservatives play hard ball like she does, all one can do is wish we had an attack dog like her on our side.

I figured we’d wind down D-Day with …

Geez, AP, you looking to set things up where you ban half of your regular commenters here? I’m not even participating on this thread. That ?itch would lead me to stress the second commandment to the breaking point and probably lead to other bad words.

/Lutheran/Catholic ordering of commandments: “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain”.

Conservatives need to abandon their principles and become activists at all levels. To be respectful of precedent by definition means nothing will change.

Cnservatives can not be conservative and expect to win these fights. They must be radicals or they are wasting their time playing defense or mearly tending their wounds.

rickyricardo on June 28, 2012 at 10:59 PM

Tomorrow we start again!

And you have to believe that ” we know that right / Will triumph in the end!” That is all we need. I was in a hospital today at 9:00 AM as the ruling came down. I can tell you that we are not alone! We are not the minority! This fight has just begun!

A twofer, as frankly, I was hoping for non-twisted logic from the Supremes.

This decision from the SC is just that, twisted (nefarious and illogical).

Bat Nan, well….

They can try to enforce it all they want.

Unlike some here, I’m not given up, or in. Never.

I would like to know if Mittens has entered a comment.

I, reluctantly, will vote for him (call it the ABO camp), but if I hear him say that the FlapEared teh is just in over his head — and a nice guy too. Sorry, Mitt.

You know, I was thinking today (what?) about how juxtaposed with yesteryear, some of us would have just a little faith in ‘our esteemed’ politicians and imagine what we might be thinking about rather than spending all our time with the various ‘feet to the fire’ aspects that seem never ending…

Never going to give up.
