sharpest pencil in the box

Although Sarah Palin is much maligned, her Democratic foil has to be Nancy Pelosi. Different ideology but essentially cut from the same cloth. Neither, based on past performance, can be considered the sharpest tools in the woodshed, the sharpest pencils in the box; in fact there appears little correlation between brains and wealth and political status.

Hard to believe that before the 2010 Congrssional elections that she was third in line to the throne. Almost scary to imagine foreign policy, domestic policy, the economy and the armed forces would be under this commander-in-chief. The latest scuffaw is over jewish voters migrating, crossing the floor to Republicanism which is likely more significant than the polls show. They don’t have to get hot under the yarmulke, as Pelosi is an equal opportunity gaffess, espousing the kind of white liberal elitism, and condescension that have become a hallmark of liberal politics….

—Moreover, as small businesses cried out to the Heavens and pleaded for help to be spared the exploitative ravages of ObamaCare, Pelosi was among the first to stand for the exploited, even wielding her influence as then-speaker of the House to spare several exploited small business from Obama’s tax mandate. Among the 204 formal governmental waivers approved in April 2011, singling out particular companies across the United States for special protection from ObamaCare, some 20% were businesses based in Pelosi’s congressional district.
These included 38 upscale restaurants, nightclubs, and hotels. For example, Boboquivari’s restaurant, which offers $59 porterhouse steaks and filet mignon at $39, got a waiver to stay afloat. Other waivers went to two of San Francisco’s most gorgeous hotels, Campton Place and Hotel Nikko. Likewise, one of the most exclusive spas in San Francisco, the red-hot Infusion Lounge nightclub, and other ritzy upscale businesses in Pelosi’s district were given waivers. She protected them all from exploitation, much as she now offers to safeguard America’s Jews. Meanwhile, Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services also approved 31 union waivers and 27 waivers for favored health care and drug companies at that time. Obama’s and Pelosi’s cronies would not be among the exploited.
Now, they’re smart people — they know Nancy Pelosi.
By October 2011, there already were 1,800 waivers granted from ObamaCare. Even McDonald’s qualified. If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it seems that exploitation is in the pocket of the beholden.

PELOSI: But I — I think that he will. I think that he will, because the fact is when the facts get out. You know, as many of the Republicans are using Israel as an excuse, what they really want are tax cuts for the wealthy. So Israel, that can be one reason they put forth.

—Here are her thoughts on energy. On NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, the speaker twice seemed to suggest that natural gas – an energy source she favors – is not a fossil fuel.
‘I believe in natural gas as a clean, cheap, alternative to fossil fuels… it is cheap, abundant and clean compared to fossil fuels.” Aug 24, 2008
Obviously, Ms. Pelosi has no idea that natural gas is a fossil fuel.
And here is what she says about the need to pass a stimulus bill on Fox News Sunday:
“Every week we don’t pass a Stimulus package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.” Jan 18, 2009
Nancy claims that we lose 500 million American jobs each month we don’t pass her $1 trillion pork barrel spending boondoggle.
Chris Wallace corrected her, stating she probably meant 500,000 jobs. Pelosi responded in her own defense, “It feels like 500 million.” —Read More:

HUNT: That’s why some of the Republican Jewish supporters are really active.

PELOSI: Well, that’s how they’re being exploited. And they’re smart people. They follow these issues. But they have to know the facts. And the fact is that President Obama has been the strongest person in terms of sanctions on Iran, which is important to Israel. He’s been the strongest person on whether it’s Iron Dome, David’s Sling, any of these weapons systems and initiatives that relate to Israel. He has been there over and over again.

—Dov Fischer:Alas, contrary to her patronizing compliment, Jews are not “smart people,” and certainly not when it comes to politics. Yes, Jews are studious. Jews are fastidious. There is something about Jewish culture, as Mitt Romney has noticed, that teaches us to respond to adversity by working harder to excel, and to deal with the hurt of bigotry by learning to find humor in the mundane. But as a group who voted 78 percent for Obama in 2008, and who repeatedly have bullet-voted for candidates from that same Democratic Party, even when that party offers no reason for such lockstep devotion and actually promotes an agenda that threatens several of our vital concerns as Americans, one thing that cannot be said about us, without commentary, is that “they’re smart people.”

Actually, Obama’s failure to go to Israel since he was trying to shore up support among Jewish voters in 2008 has become a campaign issue. But it is her comment that Republican Jews are concocting complaints about Obama’s Israel policies, which have been criticized at various times by both Democrats and Republicans, to disguise their opposition to higher taxes that will strike many as offensive. Read More:

If a Republican accused Jews of voting for a Democrat because they’re rich people and want a tax cut, what do you think the reaction would be? I think that Republican would rightfully be branded an anti-Semite. But when a Democrat makes a comment like that, it slips right under the media’s radar range. Especially when the Democrat is none other than Queen Nancy Pelosi…..Read More:


(see link at end)…Ms. Pelosi.Pelosi on providing benefits for illegal immigrants:

“We have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities.”

and that we can fund these benefits by simply raising taxes, since these people are “Americans” too…

“Stock market profits taxes could go a long ways to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as “Americans.”

Nancy Pelosi truly has to be one of the most brain-dead politicians in Washington. You aren’t going to believe what came out of her mouth yesterday during a speech she delivered for the National Association of Counties. She is talking about Congress passing health-care reform and she says …

“But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.” Mar 9, 2010

Nancy Pelosi, on the prospect of Democrats winning back Congress

“The gavel of the speaker of the House is in the hands of special interests, and now it will be in the hands of America’s children.” Nov 8, 2008

Pelosi calls unemployment checks a “stimulus” that is a “double benefit” helping “those who lost their jobs” and at the same serves as a “job creator”

“Unemployment Checks Serve As Job Creator. because It injects demand into the economy.” Read More:
