National deficit, in trillions of dollars.
I don’t care what party you are in, GOP, Socialist, Democrat or Green. It is not smart to run up debt bills like this. Look how the debt accelerates when Pelosi got the card in 2007! At some point, you have to say, “Cut up that #@*&%! credit card.” If you can’t afford it, you can’t afford it.
In this case it is Pelosi first, then the pres. that cannot be trusted with this credit card. They both ought to get taken out behind the proverbial woodshed to either cut up the credit card or immolate it in a fiery ritual and for good measure, trample on a picture of that guy in the Ditech.com commercial.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Holds News Conference
QUESTION: Since last week, when you knew when and your comments about misleading, being misled by the CIA have been big, big news. But Leader Boehner has said produce evidence that you were misled or apologize. CIA Director Panetta has said that, you know, the CIA is not in the practice of misleading Congress.
PELOSI: I have made the statement that I’m going make on this. I don’t have anything more to say about it. I stand by my comments. And what we are doing is staying on our course and not be distracted from it in this distractive mode. We’re going forward in a bipartisan way for jobs, health care, and energy for our country. And on the subject that you asked, I’ve made the statement that I’m going to make. I won’t have anything more to that about it.
PELOSI: I won’t have anything more to say about it.
QUESTION: And were you aware that Steve King is asking for your security clearance to be revoked?
Pathetic — she’s obviously trying to avoid saying the word CIA. Only “the subject that you asked” is permitted.
Even Richard Nixon had more artful moves.
I thought this administration was supposed to be transparent, not a stonewall like the Watergate bag men. It’s nice to see her on the run.
Point: It makes her look guilty.
Counterpoint: She can’t understand that.
It’s because she has never had an adversarial media before this. In other words, the press was her S L U T heretofore, removing her motivation for developing any real agility. So she has maybe three moves:
- “open my gas nozzle” — which all politicians have, of course,
- “off with their heads” for all who oppose her, and
- “its my microphone” — i.e., stonewalling.
Not very nifty. Big 300-lb linemen in the NFL have more moves.
