Nancy Pelosi: We Democrats certainly never treated President Bush this way

posted at 4:41 pm on January 28, 2014 by Erika Johnsen

Democrats are looking to President Obama to really help kick the populist agenda they have been re-devising for the 2014 campaign season into high gear with his address this evening, and in previewing the SOTU on MSNBC this morning, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was really in her element, hitting all of the latest “obstructionist,” “income inequality opportunity gap,”  “executive action” talking points like so many carefully concocted whack-a-moles. That it always and necessarily takes two parties to tango is a piece of logic that never seems to enter into that kind of woe-is-us, nobody-else-has-ever-had-to-deal-with-a-divided-government brand of thinking:

The point is that, since that time, under President Obama’s administration, we have eight million jobs created… We have an opportunity gap that the president will be addressing, but let’s remember where we were and how far we have come from the Bush economic policies to where we are now. … The point is, what is happening here now, and let’s, since you’re trying to analyze it, is we have a large segment of the Republican party that is anti-government. We don’t want any more government than we need, but they’re anti-government, anti-science, and anti-Obama. They have a trifecta that is going. I say to the Republicans, take back your party. …To obstruct every initiative that the president has put forth on jobs and say, ‘Why don’t we have more jobs?’ Well, we do have more jobs, but no thanks to the Congress of the United States. … We did not treat President Bush this way. … This obstruction to President Obama is something quite stunning, and something quite different.

The Republicans pass almost everything Obama throws at them after the requisite whining about it to try to trick the base. To be frank, the Republicans are not being remotely obstructionist enough.

It’s obvious that the real Nancy Pelosi died about 20 years ago, and a lifelike android has been operating ever since to convince the American public otherwise.

Before you poo-poo the idea, remember that the same guy who built Geoff Peterson also hails from San Francisco.

Desperation. Obama and the democrats policies have been a national disaster and it is evident for all to see. To keep pretending otherwise makes the left sound more delusional than ever. It will be interesting to hear how his speech full of spin and untruths will be covered.

Why do the Democrats insist on making everyone equally poor except those who are rich? What’s the deal? Raising the minimum wage does nothing for the poor long term. It just buys votes until inflation catches up with the new wage. In the short term it makes those who make more than minimum wage poor until after inflation catches up.

Dannic on January 28, 2014 at 5:13 PM

Motto of the Pelosi Vineyard–These vines have bitter grapes.

vityas on January 28, 2014 at 5:13 PM

Dem Bumpkins in the WaPo comments check in:

I can never understand the anger that people have for this president. Even if you consider that at worst he has done nothing, it doesn’t quite explain the anger. The last president got us into a senseless war that killed many Americans and created a huge deficit and everybody is quiet.

Wow, the comments are filled with angry back seat drivers! No matter what Obama tries to do, he will be blocked by even angrier Republicans, and though Congress’s popularity is at an all time low, some readers are reckless enough to blame Obama for the gridlock. It takes more than 6 years to undo the damage done by the neocons in 8 years. Look at what the sub prime debacle did to the economies of so many countries especially, the US. Under whose watch did that occur?

Typical how it was Ronald Reagan’s henchmen at the FCC who decimated the Fairness Doctrine in 1987, a situation that has now given rise to the preposterous broadcasting of three Republican “responses” to Obama’s speech tonight. This foolishness should not be allowed; the opposition should be limited to one broadcast response to the State of the Union speech, regardless of the party of the president making that speech.

“IT BURNS!”

She’s right, Bush wasn’t treated as badly, because he was conciliatory to her side, agreeing with Democrats, for the most part. Obama gets the treatment he deserves, only not from Republicans, but from an electorate that has had enough of him and Bush.

rickv404 on January 28, 2014 at 5:22 PM

For six years George Stephanopolous reported the death tally on ABC news on a nightly basis, even going so far as to recite the names of our brave troops who were killed. He poked in finger in George Bush’s eye every single night, in essence saying “look at these men you are killing”.

Now the death toll in Afghanistan under Obama’s watch has exceeded the number killed during Bush’s two terms, and what do we hear from Snuffy every night?

ZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Nothing, nada, not a word. All of a sudden pur brave troops are honorably just doing their job, putting their life on the line for our country as any good soldier would.

Bush: Murderer
Obama: Messiah

The difference is striking, obvious and disgusting. And Snuffy is nothing short of a cover man for the Democrats. So shut up Nancy,
you conniving political whore!

fogw on January 28, 2014 at 5:22 PM

Okay,

So I’ve seen the HA topics where Andrea Mitchell and Nancy Pelosi expose themselves as lying whores. I’m watching The Five where Bob is changing facts to defend Executive Order……

Prior to that your lot made movies about killing W. The words “Quagmire” and “This war is lost” and “Depression” immediately leap to mind.

How about all that wonderful cooperation when W made the attempt to reform Social Security? Yeah, you scum on the left really treated him well.

You’re still blaming him for the economy YOU created, Nancy, you’re a clown.

RebeccaH on January 28, 2014 at 5:37 PM

Let’s see. Bush was accused of lying us into war. Allowing 9/11 to happen. He was responsible for Katrina(some even went so far as blaming the levees on him). He didn’t care about black people. He was a loser. He was responsible for hurricanes. He was compared to Hitler. Called a traitor. Oh, and he’s to this day blamed for the economy despite having just entered the SIXTH YEAR of the Obama Presidency. And this is all from elected Democrats. Not the kook fringe on the blogs.

I only wish the elected Republicans were half as tough on Obama as the Dems were on Bush.

Doughboy on January 28, 2014 at 5:37 PM

One has to realize that anyone who would vote for Barack Obama or Nancy Pelosi is blindingly stupid.

That’s the only way she can possibly claim she and her Obama Party never obstructed George Bush.

As President Bush prepares for his second term, Democrats in Washington and around the country are organizing for a year of confrontation and resistance, saying they are determined to block Bush’s major initiatives and thereby deny him the mandate he has claimed from his reelection victory last November.

But yeah, you guys totally played ball with the President.

And that’s just within Congress; it’s to say nothing about the external reactions: the radio network accusing him of being on cocaine during debates, and locking black people in the Superdome to die; not one, but two animated series lampooning him while in office, the assassination porn, the burning effigies, the egging of his motorcade, the peak of Michael Moore’s popularity… great time to be a President, fo sho.

We DON’T have more jobs, San Fran Nan, thanks to President Obama. If he just got out of the way and let private industry build the Keystone Pipeline, drill and frack for oil and gas, and build new refineries and gas-fired power plants, we’d have PLENTY of jobs.

Instead we’re stuck with, “If you like your health insurance, you can’t keep it, and if you like your doctor, you can’t keep him.” Thanks to YOU, San Fran Nan, who didn’t tell us what was in it until it was too late.
