Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Pelosi’s last hurrah as Speaker shows that the woman’s on crack

How else to explain this knee-slapper?

At her final press conference as House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, “Deficit reduction has been a high priority for us. It is our mantra, pay-as-you-go.”

Fox crunches the numbers:

When the Pelosi Democrats took control of Congress on January 4, 2007, the national debt stood at $8,670,596,242,973.04. The last day of the 111th Congress and Pelosi’s Speakership on December 22, 2010 the national debt was $13,858,529,371,601.09 – a roughly $5.2 trillion increase in just four years. Furthermore, the year over year federal deficit has roughly quadrupled during Pelosi’s four years as speaker, from $342 billion in fiscal year 2007 to an estimated $1.6 trillion at the end of fiscal year 2010.

Additionally, it is beyond dishonest to say that “pay as you go” has “been our mantra”!  She and her party implemented all kinds of budget busting spending items, including extending unemployment benefits to 99 weeks, by explicitly and routinely bypassing their own “pay as you go” rules.  When Republicans insisted that such spending items be paid for with the Dems’ own “pay as you go” rules, they were tarred and feathered by the Dems and the MSM (pardon the redundancy).

Then again, this is the same genius that said paying people not to go get a job and to keep them on food stamps was the best way to create jobs and stimulate the economy.

  1. O’Reiley went crazy over this last night. He posed the question is she a liar or deranged. The pannel agreed deranged since they say she actually believes her lie. I say Pelosi is to smart and a to much of a political animal to be deranged. This is a political ploy that she hoped would be played by the liberal media. Also she’s now going to insist of pay as you go in the new congress. This would not necessarily be a bad thing. However, the problem she’s going to use it to try to force higher taxes on Job Providers to pay for the war. So she’s a manipulative liar…or a Liberal Democratic Politician.
