Nancy Pelosi Uses Boehner Resignation to Kick House Republicans

Nancy Pelosi Uses Boehner Resignation to Kick House Republicans

No class.

When John Boehner shocked everyone yesterday by announcing he would step down as house speaker, even Obama dropped his partisanship long enough to say a few nice things.

No such courtesy was afforded by former house speaker Nancy Pelosi who used the opportunity to bash House Republicans as extremists who want to shut down the government.

Carolyn May of Breitbart reported:

Pelosi: Boehner Resignation ‘Indication of Disarray in GOP’

Speaking to reporters Friday, Pelosi called Boehner’s resignation “a stark indication of the disarray of the House Republicans.”

She continued, adding that it is “a demonstration of [House Republicans’] obsession with shutting down government at the expense of women’s health and a sign of the failure of the House Republicans to be willing to engage in dialogue for the good of the American people and for us to move forward.”

I know Boehner is unpopular among conservatives and that many people on the right are happy about the news of his imminent departure, but let’s not forget what we had before:

On a related note, Boehner’s resignation may be a classic case of be careful what you wish for.

Amber Phillips of the Washington Post:

Meet Kevin McCarthy, the potential next speaker of the House

If tea party Republicans think they’re going to replace Boehner with one of their own, it’s surely not McCarthy.

Prior to becoming majority whip in 2011, his record was among the more conservative Republicans in the House. But being in leadership the last four-plus years has put McCarthy much more toward the moderate/establishment wing of the party.

The conservative Club for Growth gives him a lifetime score of 73 percent, but just 43 percent in 2014. McCarthy is supportive of one of Club for Growth’s biggest issues: He has said he does not support renewing the Export-Import Bank, an independent government agency that helps U.S. companies do risky-ish business abroad. Tea party conservatives have decried the bank, which often supports big businesses like Boeing and Caterpillar, for “crony capitalism.” He also signed a pledge in 2010 to avoid raising taxes to combat climate change.

As far as I am concerned, nancy pelosi is the most despicable, most un-American critter to ever set foot in Congress.
Her “Pass The Law So You Can Find Out What’s In It” remains unchallenged, IMO, in the history of Congress.

——— ———– ————


Please read carefully before disagreeing.
She holds the record for Congress. The White House has its own champion of un-Americanism.

    Let’s not overlook the record-holder over in the Senate…Dirty Filthy Harry Reid. There was never a more execrable man to hold the office he did as Majority Leader. Ever.

      Radegunda in reply to Ragspierre. | September 26, 2015 at 11:25 am

      The news had a soundbite presenting Harry as the sober voice of reason saying how shameful it would be for Republicans to block the necessary business of Congress by their dogmatic insistence on a partisan agenda.

      Never mind that in this particular case it would have been the minority Democrats (and a presidential veto) shutting down the government because of their adamant demand that taxpayers’ money be sent to the abortion industry.

      Never mind that Harry Reid as majority leader wouldn’t even pass a budget for some years.

      Never mind that Harry Reid killed a large portion of the House bills before they even got to the Senate floor.

      At some level, Harry Reid must know he’s a despicable lying worm. It just doesn’t bother him to be such a creature.

        Ragspierre in reply to Radegunda. | September 26, 2015 at 1:18 pm

        But the runners are competing in different events!

        Think of Nanny as a pole vaulter (I know…that could cause blindness), and Dirty Filthy Harry as a sprinter.

        BOTH are champions of terrible in their own events.

      Exiliado in reply to Ragspierre. | September 26, 2015 at 1:12 pm

      Let’s make it a tie.

      I recognize it’s a tough choice.

    Milhouse in reply to Exiliado. | September 27, 2015 at 2:43 am

    If you think Pelosi is “the most despicable, most un-American critter to ever set foot in Congress” then you have a very short memory. Even if we were to confine ourselves to the House of Representatives and the 21st century, surely that title is a race between Alan Grayson and Cynthia McKinney. And if we include the 227-year history of the Congress there have been much worse creatures than any who serve there today. How about Samuel Dickstein, the Soviet spy? Or Preston Brooks, Lawrence Keitt, and Henry A. Edmundson, who committed a vicious assault on Senator Charles Sumner?

NC Mountain Girl | September 26, 2015 at 10:50 am

How is it that election debacles in 2010 and 2014 Pelosi remains the leader of an ever shrinking band of House Democrats. It seems to me there is even more dysfunction of the Democrat side of the aisle.

    I have to take mild exception. The Collectivists in the House are wonderfully conformist. A lot like the Supreme Soviet, or a colony of ants.

      Radegunda in reply to Ragspierre. | September 26, 2015 at 11:33 am

      They also win elections because at the general they pull out all the stops to stop the “R” even if they don’t especially like the “D” on the ballot.

      Meanwhile, many on our side say, “There’s no way I’ll vote for the ‘R’ if it’s not a candidate I like.” They imagine they’re “sending a message” to someone, though they can’t explain who’s listening to their “message” or what will happen as a consequence.

      What’s likely to happen, of course, is that somebody even worse gets elected, and the GOP concludes that the electorate is moving leftward.

        NC Mountain Girl in reply to Radegunda. | September 26, 2015 at 11:44 am

        I think that if you actually look at the maps you’ll find a lot of the more radical Democrats represent heavily gerrymandered districts. Note too that in some of these districts there is often a large under vote in the Congressional race because voters feel they have no real choice.

        Pelosi actually is an exception. Her district is compact and contiguous. It also encompasses the heart of San Francisco, the Mecca for the dysfunctional among us.

        What you say is blatant bullshit designed for nothing but having an R in power, rather than advancing the cause of conservatism.

        “They” can vote for any D and get at least some push forward towards the Marxist future they desire. When we do as you say and vote for the R no mater what, the same thing happens, there is a further push to Marxism.

        The only way to stop the push is to refuse to vote for anyone that is not willing to pull out all the stops in the interests of conservatism. Winning an election with an R that just pushes further left is of zero value.

        If you want my vote, nominate someone I will vote for.

        Hint, do not nominate Romney/McCain/Dole. Do not nominate Jeb!/Rubio/the rest of the leftwing R hacks.

    It’s the money. She is self-funded.

The Republicans have failed.

Speaker John Boehner is resigning. And now we’re headed toward another needless and self-destructive government shutdown.

That’s why I need your help. We need grassroots supporters to show the Republicans they can’t play politics with a government shutdown.

Will you stand with me and give $5?
—Nanny Pelosi in an email blast today

Halloween Scare Tip:

If your target is a GOPe leader, for a little scare scream “boo!” and for a big scare whisper “shutdown”.

I think Christopher Nolan should use Pelosi as a villain in the next Batman movie: “Batman Battles Madame Botox.”

    Better yet, how about a Battle of the Botox Bimbos – Nancy vrs Carly, the one whose cheeks crack first after a round of exaggerated forced smiles – loses.

      If Carly did use Botox, you can bet she read the Precautions first. She would not “do” the Botox to find out what’s in it.

      The real question: Is Trump Botox-centric?

      Ragspierre in reply to jayjerome66. | September 26, 2015 at 4:07 pm

      Hell, JJ(sad)trombone, Nanny Pelosi is FAR beyond Botox.

      That face has been stretched so many times, I will bet there are tuning keys surgically implanted in the back of her head, just to make it convenient!

      Wanna bet she can’t pass through a metal detector?

Yeah, that ‘no class’ Nancy Pelosi – Kicking Republicans like that!

Wow, isn’t she a stark contrast to Conservative Republicans, who at least have the class to kick one of their own! While insulting his character. While applauding his resignation as if was a news release that Obama had fallen down a flight of stairs and broke his neck. While stabbing him in the back.

Now that’s party unity the Democrats are gonna have a hard time overcoming! Ted (there but for the letter ‘d) Cruz couldn’t resist further impugning Boehner’s character, insinuating his deal-making with Democrats on legislation was presumably to land him “a cushy K Street job” afterwards.

http://www.newsmax.com/Headline/john-boehner-ted-cruz-democrats-avoid/2015/09/25/id/693367/

That Cruz is one classy fella. Have you noticed he kinda looks like a cross between Richard Nixon and Joe McCarthy — especially at the eyebrows and hair-line; and in the scowling undertaker expression that dominates his demeanor on camera. He also mimics McCarthy and Nixon in his ready willingness to slur others. Like the old joke:

Q:”How can you tell when Ted Cruz is demeaning somebody?”
A:”His lips are moving.”

The good news according to this week’s polls is that only 5% to 6% of Republican Americans who say they are voting in the primaries, are fans of Ex-Canadian Ted.

Let’s hope history gobbles him up and spits him out quickly, before he gets the chance to harm America as did his look-alike doppelgängers.

    Now we know who Ted Cruz scares!

      Yeah he does scare me; I have a sharp instinct for creepy people.

      And here’s someone else with Ted-like resonance, especially in the devious smile

      https://www.thewrap.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/gotham-penguin-robin-lord-taylor-episode-trailer-video-340×300.jpg

      JJ is scared of all Republicans. That is why he does his pathetic best to tear every one of them down. He only supports the Democrat in the race.

        jayjerome66 in reply to Valerie. | September 26, 2015 at 11:07 pm

        Then how do you explain the fact I was one of the first of a very few here to support Trump, and to predict he would be a strong candidate while the regulars were almost universally disparaging him, predicting he would fade in the polls in weeks – you were one of the wrong predictors, right RagBrainPierre?

        I’m an Independant and have been for decades. I vote the issues and the candadates, not the party line, and especially not the catechisms of Lefty or Righty party line political correctness.

        Screw the Left and the Right.
        That’s why Im for the Donald.
        He’s not a committed Republican or Democrat – He’s deep in the middle.

          Ragspierre in reply to jayjerome66. | September 27, 2015 at 6:26 am

          How to explain…?!?!

          First, you’re a Moby Troll.

          Second, you’re an ignoramus.

          Third, you really are quite evil (see, “first” above).

          As to predictions, it seems it was common for you to throw trolling comments around here about how we’d be writhing under the Hellary presidency after 2016.

          Heh…!

          jayjerome66 in reply to jayjerome66. | September 27, 2015 at 2:28 pm

          You need to put that Hillary comment in context, PutzPierre, because you have a habit of chopping sentences up and leaving out the full meaning. Or plain making stuff up.

          But if I did say something like that it’s likely it was it would almost be worth it to be under a Hillary presidency after 2016 – to see you writhing..

          Ragspierre in reply to jayjerome66. | September 27, 2015 at 2:47 pm

          That is, of course a set of lies, and you’re a liar.

          jayjerome66 in reply to jayjerome66. | September 27, 2015 at 4:01 pm

          There ya go again with the lies accusations.

          The first sentence is a request, and can’t be a lie.

          The second sentence is a statement of fact. You want to take up my previous bet offer of a month’s silence from the blog on that one? Put up or shut up.

          The third sentence is an opinion based on observation – now proved by me refuting your ‘set of lies’ accusation, which I’ll complete now:

          The fourth sentence is a hypothetical, qualified by the second word “if.” Are you so dense you don’t understand a hypothetical exists as a theory or possibility – and cannot therefore be a false assertion?

          See, no set of lies. Not even one lie.

          But enough of dopy you.

          Time to gear up for the Moon Eclipse tonight at Griffith Observatory, with telescopes in place and an L.A. Philharmonic’s pianist serenading the moon with Beethoven sonatas.

          You remember Griffith Observatory from your teenaged years, right – when they tossed you out for obscene gestures and noises during the planetarium show; or do I have you confused with some other sexually dysfunctional teenager?

    Ragspierre in reply to jayjerome66. | September 26, 2015 at 3:57 pm

    Wow, Moby Troll, you’re spinning off into true psychosis!

    Where do you EVEN come up with this BS? It really is starkly mad!

      jayjerome66 in reply to Ragspierre. | September 26, 2015 at 4:20 pm

      Well, sure – you’re gonna defend Absentee Ted (I don’t have to explain the absentee prefix to you right?). Two Antediluvian fossilized creatures from the political prime-evil ooze who are joined at the lip are fated to partner in the devious duet of misinformation that spews from you daily.

      But I’m just psychotic, so don’t bother responding.

    Ragspierre in reply to jayjerome66. | September 26, 2015 at 4:30 pm

    “If it is correct that the speaker, before he resigns, has cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi to fund the Obama administration for the rest of this year, to fund Obamacare, to fund executive amnesty, to fund Planned Parenthood, to fund implementation of this Iran deal, and then presumably to land a cushy K Street job after joining with the Democrats to implement all of President Obama’s priorities, that is not the behavior one would expect from a Republican speaker of the House.”

    Which is an observation we can watch, test, and determine with time.

    It isn’t anything like your MAD BS about Nixon (the Progressive) and McCarthy (who was vindicated by history, though he did go crazy).

    You poor, lying, Collectivist SOS.

      jayjerome66 in reply to Ragspierre. | September 26, 2015 at 11:19 pm

      McCarthy was vindicated? Have you no shame? ( you get the ‘no shame’ reference, right you revisionist apologist worm?)

      Who’s next on your redeemed villain list, Mussolini ?

      I’d spend more time answering your other dopy jottings on this thread, but my neighbor asked me for help fixing a sewer pipe backup, and though it’s a close call, I have to put off attending to your sh*t to help remove his first. But be patient, the shovel will be on the way eventually.

        “right you revisionist apologist worm”

        The left were the ones guilty of revision. McCarthy was correct. Proven correct.

        idiots like you only believe the Marxist propaganda

        Milhouse in reply to jayjerome66. | September 27, 2015 at 2:47 am

        If you think McCarthy was wrong, I challenge you to name someone he wrongly accused of being a communist.

          jayjerome66 in reply to Milhouse. | September 27, 2015 at 2:18 pm

          SchmutzHouse, how they hanging?

          How about I give you something more specific:

          McCarthy accused Owen Lattimore of being “the top Russian espionage agent in the United States.”

          Lattimore admitted to being sympathetic to Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Union (so did numbers of American leaders during WWII when Russia was our ally) – but he wasn’t a Communist.

          Nevertheless McCarthy’s charge led to years of accusations and Congressional hearings, none of which substantiated the spy charge. Though the charges did put an end to Lattimore’s academic career in America. The poor fellow had to move to England, where he had a cushy job teaching at University of Leeds, where he wrote and lectured many years, living to the ripe old age of 88; Jerk-Off Joe however didn’t fare that well — he died of alcoholism related bodily (and mind) failures and acute assholeness at the age of 48.

          Ragspierre in reply to Milhouse. | September 27, 2015 at 2:38 pm

          “…he died of alcoholism related bodily (and mind) failures and acute assholeness at the age of 48”.

          A cautionary tale for yourself that you apparently refuse to acknowledge.

          Ragspierre in reply to Milhouse. | September 27, 2015 at 2:45 pm

          Though perhaps not a Communist Party member, she wrote, he was “something far more dangerous”—an ostensibly independent ‘idealist’ “whose idealism just happened to coincide with Russian realism.”[49] Sol Levitas, editor of the socialist[50] magazine The New Leader, wrote that Lattimore was worse than a spy—he was a “LitAg” (literary agitator) of the Kremlin who sought to harm American foreign policy by molding public opinion to favor a pro-Soviet course—and was therefore more valuable to Stalin than a thousand Communist Party members.[51] Far from being simply “a well-meaning liberal martyrized by McCarthy for telling unpalatable truths about Asia,” wrote the socialist[52] Sidney Hook, Lattimore, “at the very least, was a devious and skillful follower of the Communist Party line on Asian affairs” who had more influence on American foreign policy in Asia than “all anti-Communists combined.”[53] As the American Committee for Cultural Freedom concluded in an article in The New Republic, “Lattimore was indeed a willing instrument of the Soviet conspiracy against the free world.”[54]

          I’m sure you’d like to see an early conclusion to the prognostication.

          Ragspierre in reply to Milhouse. | September 27, 2015 at 3:24 pm

          No. I would much rather see you forsake your high office as Assholiness and learn to be truthful, happy, and not evil.

          You can do it!

          jayjerome66 in reply to Milhouse. | September 27, 2015 at 3:29 pm

          Did I read the quote you posted above correctly?
          He was “not a Communist Party Member..”

          So you confirmed another false Jerk-off Joe accusation!

          But not to worry, if you looked deeper in Lattimer’s life you would had a rush of exaltation finding out as early as 1947 he was warning of the danger humanity presents to the environment. In his book “An Inner Asian Approach to the Historical Geography of China,” he was propounding the theory that humanity affects the environment in ways positive and negative…

          There you go, Climate Change is Communist propaganda.

          But back to your guy McCarthy. Have you turned up any revisionist theory to the anti-Homosexual witch hunts he conducted, to purge the government of queers. He openly conducted numerous investigations to ferret them out of government positions – which earned him high approval ratings.

          Like I said, not only does Ted Cruz look like McCarthy, he obviously ha benefited from his Witch Hunt mentality (substitute abortion and Planned Parenthood for commies and gays, and your there).

          Ragspierre in reply to Milhouse. | September 27, 2015 at 3:36 pm

          I can’t say with certainty that Walter Duranty was an official member of the Communist Party.

          I CAN say he was responsible, in part, for the death of millions of people. He WAS an enabler, the quintessence of a useful idiot.

          A post to which you still aspire…

          “Lattimore admitted to being sympathetic to Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Union (so did numbers of American leaders during WWII when Russia was our ally) – but he wasn’t a Communist.”

          Of course he was a communist you flippin moron. One does not have to be issued a card by the communist party USA to be a commie.

If I were Pelosi, I would have nothing but contempt for Boehner and his clowns.

Actually, I’m a conservative with nothing but contempt for Boehner and his clowns.

See, your poor, lying SOS, it just comes as pure habit to you.

“…because you have a habit of chopping sentences up and leaving out the full meaning. Or plain making stuff up.”

Those are two lies right there. The “request” predicate of your sentence does not cancel the accusatory lie that comes after it.

I never “make stuff up”. That is YOUR province, Mr. “Parasite”.

Enjoy being mooned!

    jayjerome66 in reply to Ragspierre. | September 28, 2015 at 8:36 pm

    Your ‘moon’ looks more like two flabby wrinkled hams left in dry desert air for a month.

    OK, a fetus is not technically a parasite.

    But a fetus in a womb mimics a parasite.

    The fetus is in a parasitic relationship with the mother.

    Like other parasites, a fetus lives inside the body of another creature, extracts their nutrition from its blood, and struggles to escape attack from the hosts immune system. Also, the fetal placenta aggressively sprouts blood vessels that invade its mother’s tissue to extract nutrients. parasite-like.

    These are not my idle speculations. Check out the writings and interviews of Dr. David Haig, evolutionary biologist at Harvard, with the science writer Carl Zimmer, and Zimmer’s interviews too:

    Q: Technically though, what is a parasite?
    A: Anything that thrives at the expense of what it’s living on and living in. In the broadest definition, you include viruses, a lot of bacteria and things you don’t normally think of as parasites. A fetus in the womb actually behaves a lot like a parasite. It uses strategies to extract nutrients and energy out of its mother. And the mother, to a certain extent, has to defend herself against it.

    http://www.jillwolfson.com/journalism/parasites.html

    I have equally expert testimony to contradict your other absurd contention that the word ‘evolve’ can’t be used to described the ‘evolving’ fetus — but the BBQ is sizzling, and I rather eat what the chef is cooking, then continue this fruitless conversation with you.

    But I’ll make the same bet offer to you once again: if I produce the authentic references from specialists in fetal development and birth who use the term ‘evolve’in published articles and interviews, will you SHUT UP for a month? And if I can’t produce them, I’ll take the same lengthy hiatus.

    Bet or no bet, bozo?
