Pelosi: Let’s face it, Republicans hate Obama because he’s eloquent and “nonpartisan”

posted at 4:41 pm on September 20, 2013 by Allahpundit

The perfect companion vid to Jay Cost’s analysis this morning of how unusually, relentlessly partisan The One’s rhetoric has been as president, especially in his weekly YouTube messages. Oh, and also to Politico’s round-up of Democrats wondering why someone who’s so often touted as a brilliantly eloquent orator can’t seem to sell the public on anything except his own personal awesomeness. (Headline: “The ‘meh’ of a salesman.”) As usual, Nancy is eye-to-eye with reality.

Silver lining: A reporter asking a big-name Democrat why righties dislike Obama is almost always bait to accuse them of racism. She doesn’t take it. Second look at Pelosi?

Throughout a 50-minute interview on Thursday in her second-floor Capitol office, where the late Speaker Tip O’Neill used to receive supplicants, Pelosi was sharply derisive about the scorn Republicans have for this president.

“You know why it is,” she said. “You know why it is. He’s brilliant, … he thinks in a strategic way in how to get something done … and he’s completely eloquent. That’s a package that they don’t like.”…

Then she added a line that she has used before, that drives Republicans batty: “He has been … open, practically apolitical, certainly nonpartisan, in terms of welcoming every idea and solution. I think that’s one of the reasons the Republicans want to take him down politically, because they know he is a nonpartisan president, and that’s something very hard for them to cope with.”

“Practically apolitical” — the guy who couldn’t bear to cancel his speech Monday dumping on Republicans over the financial crisis while the rest of the country was waiting to see how bad the massacre at the Navy Yard would be. And while normally I’d cut her slack on grounds that she’s duty bound as a party leader to spout flattering nonsense about a Democratic president, I can’t believe she’d praise his strategic acumen after three solid weeks of White House idiocy on Syria. He had no strategy in first announcing the “red line”; he had no strategy on what to do if it was crossed; he had no strategy to win over reluctant members of Congress from both parties to support an attack; and he had no strategy to extricate himself from the whole mess until Putin laid one on his plate. Egypt is almost as bad: His “strategy” in dumping Mubarak was to realign the U.S. with the populists of the Arab Spring, and then when that turned predictably to crap under the Muslim Brotherhood, he didn’t know what to do.

The punchline is that it’s probably partly because Obama sees himself the way Pelosi does, as a brilliantly eloquent rhetorician, that he doesn’t take more care strategically. From the beginning, his politics has always placed the image of Obama the man as a uniquely inspirational, transformational figure at the core of Hopenchange, beyond any set of policies. And who could blame him? He got elected president by being a good talker; he won a Nobel Peace Prize for blathering on the stump about how he was going to do things differently internationally than Bush, the thought of which gets funnier every day. He gave a big speech in Cairo in 2009 and has pronounced upon the glories of ObamaCare near-weekly since 2010, so naturally those two things were going to work out for him. Strategy is important, sort of, but with The One throwing the full force of his brand behind those initiatives, they were bound to turn out well. And here we are.

But it’s not because of sex appeal
If she would just change her underwear
The MSM frogs would probably give her the Croix-de-Guerre
She has so many delusions it would make Freud’s knees knock
And her face would stop a cuckoo clock
You might forget her incessant chant and grating yell
But you’ll never forget the former Speaker from Hell

The Dems have so many excuses about life in general. None of this is new, it’s just that the race card is folded, spindled, and mutilated. So far they still haven’t come up with the real reason I don’t like Obama. Here is just a starter: He’s an arrogant, lying POS, but then so is Ms. Nancy.

BetseyRoss on September 20, 2013 at 4:50 PM

certainly nonpartisan, in terms of welcoming every idea and solution

So “bipartisan” is when you listen to all sides’ ideas, but only take the ones from the other side that they’ve already discarded, while “nonpartisan” is welcoming all sides’ ideas without having to take — or even listen to — any from the other side.

This loon has always been a half a bubble off of level, but it appears she is now suffering from dementia, perhaps a consequence of botox poisoning complicated by koolaid intoxication.

She should be subjected to an involuntary commitment to get her off the botox and the koolaid, on to some anti-psychotic drugs, and to determine if she is a threat to go postal, buy an AR-15 and commit a mass shooting.

This is Pelosi describing the EXACT, PRECISE, INDISTINGUISHABLE obstructionism that she’s blaming the GOP for and does it in practically the same breath.

When THEY obstruct the passage of laws it’s because…TEA PARTY… but when the GOP does it it’s because….they’re envious of such a brilliant, eloquent and non-partisan president.

Mr. Arkadin on September 20, 2013 at 5:52 PM

Some examples of Obama’s non-partisanship:

‘If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.’

– Senator Barack Obama, 14 July 2008

‘I won.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, as top congressional leaders from both parties gathered at the White House for a working discussion over the shape and size of Obama’s economic stimulus plan. The meeting was designed to promote bipartisanship, 23 January 2009

‘Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care?

– President Barack Obama, 8 November 2009

‘In all, we passed 25 different tax cuts last year. And one thing we haven’t done is raise income taxes on families making less than $250,000 a year — another promise that we kept. So I’ve been a little amused over the last couple of days where teabaggers have been having these rallies about taxes and waiving around tea bags. You would think they would be saying thank you.’

– President Barack Obama, 16 April 2010

‘The unanimous vote of House Republicans vote against the stimulus bills set the tenor for the whole year … That helped to create the tea-baggers and empowered that whole wing of the Republican Party to where it now controls the agenda for the Republicans.’

– President Barack Obama, 30 November 2009

It’s important for people to know that I will make many promises to get their votes.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, (Dem) Senator from Illinois and 2008 Presidential nominee

‘I believe in returning the nation’s wealth to its rightful owners.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, 2010

‘I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, addressing Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN)

‘The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are the people with something to hide.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States

‘There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama, because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, (Dem) Senator from Illinois and 2008 Presidential nominee. Barack Obama Jr. was born in 1961. The Selma march took place in 1965

‘It’s not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they’ve got a chance at success, too…I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.’

—Barack Hussein Obama

‘I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shifts in an ugly direction.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, quote from his book “The Audacity of Hope” page 261

‘You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, speaking to Republican leaders of Congress, 23 January 2009

‘…just because you have an individual right does not mean that the state or local government can’t constrain the exercise of that right…’

– Barack Hussein Obama, 2008 Philadelphia primary debate

‘I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, speaking to economist and author John Lott Jr.

‘We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.’

– Barack Hussein Obama speaking about forming a Civilian National Security Force, 02 July 2008

‘You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. They fell through the Clinton administration and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate. And they have notAnd it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, describing small-town, working-class voters people from Pennsylvania in a speech on 06 April 2008 as reported in the Huffington Post

‘Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems; some of these same voices also are doing their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave and creative and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, commencement speech at The Ohio State University, 05 May 2013…and mere days before the IRS-NSA-AP-Rosen scandals broke

‘I will not sign a healthcare reform plan that adds one dime to our deficits, either now or in the future.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, 2009

‘Look, it’s an all volunteer force. Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It doesn’t compute. I thought these were people who were proud to sacrifice for their country. I wasn’t asking for blood, just money. With the country facing the worst financial crisis in its history, I’d have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to try to help reduce the nation’s deficit. I guess I underestimated the selfishness of some of my fellow Americans.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, in a speech about healthcare for Veterans, 2009

‘I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shifts in an ugly direction.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, quote from his book “The Audacity of Hope” page 261

‘The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she is a typical white person…’

– Barack Hussein Obama, (Dem) Senator from Illinois and 2008 Presidential nominee

‘While the United States has done much to promote peace and prosperity in the hemisphere, we have at times been disengaged, and at times we sought to dictate our terms.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, in the Address to the Summit of the Americas, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, 17 April 2009

‘There’s nothing special about Britain. You’re just the same as the other 190 countries in the world. You shouldn’t expect special treatment.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, dismissing the notion of the special relationship between the United States and Britian, Telegraph.co.uk, 07 March 2009

‘I want to solve these problems, and I want to solve them together as Americans. And we will be ill served by some of the fear-mongering that emerges whenever we discuss this issue.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, commenting on closing Guantanamo Bay and releasing the enemy combatants and terrorists held there

‘To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.’

– Barack Hussein Obama, quote from his book “Dreams of My Father” page 100-101

‘The public school system is not about educating black children. Never has been. Inner-city schools are about social control. Period. They’re operated as holding pens – miniature jails, really. It’s only when black children start breaking out of their pens and bothering white people that society even pays any attention to the issue of whether these children are being educated.’

– Barack Hussein Obama

That thar’s sum real deal ‘nonpartisanship’. Fer sure!

Pelosi is 73, Boxer is 72 and Feinstein is 80. And they say that the GOP is the party of old white men.

Del Dolemonte on September 20, 2013 at 4:48 PM

And Shrillery is right behind them at 65.

I know, I know. She looks 95 but she’s 65.

Party of old white wo-men.

And what’s really sad is the average beauty index of the left did improve any when Helen Thomas died….

dentarthurdent on September 20, 2013 at 5:16 PM

And let’s not forget Princess Fauxahontas from MA, who’s only a year younger than Cankles.

But at this point, what difference does it make?

Del Dolemonte on September 20, 2013 at 5:55 PM

Pelosi: Let’s face it, Republicans hate Obama because he’s eloquent and “nonpartisan”

Actually, that’s why we hate you, Nancy!

Mr. Arkadin on September 20, 2013 at 5:52 PM

Also, I just can’t ever seem to get the right kind of crease in my pants….

dentarthurdent on September 20, 2013 at 5:55 PM

And Republicans hate you, Nancy, because you are so honest and wise..

And they hate Bob Melendez because he is so good with kids.

If a Republican had said that — RAAAAACCCCISSSSSSTTTT!!!

This loon has always been a half a bubble off of level, but it appears she is now suffering from dementia, perhaps a consequence of botox poisoning complicated by koolaid intoxication.

She should be subjected to an involuntary commitment to get her off the botox and the koolaid, on to some anti-psychotic drugs, and to determine if she is a threat to go postal, buy an AR-15 and commit a mass shooting.

A simple NFL sideline test as given to those suspected of a concussion would be the way to start with Princess Nana.

slickwillie2001 on September 20, 2013 at 6:03 PM

Has she been hearing voices?
‘Cause she’s talking cray cray.
