Pelosi cuts a deal

December 14, 2018

Voters are already learning that everything Democrats said to get Americans to vote for them was a lie: of course, they’re going to launch endless, money-wasting, vindictive partisan investigations of political enemies; of course, they’re going to vote to impeach President Trump for the high crime of beating them in 2016, no matter how much it harms the economy and job creation; and of course, they’re going to try to raise taxes, jack up spending, increase government, bring back pork-barrel vote buying and favors for special interests, and try to take away your guns, free speech and religious freedoms.  Anyone who voted for them expecting something different must feel like Charlie Brown lying on his back after Lucy yanked away the football for the 247th time.

 

Some of us are immune to Democratic promises that “this time, they’ve changed,” having lived through that spiel too many times before. Like the 2006 election, when Nancy Pelosi swore that the Party had learned its lesson, and they were no longer ideologically-driven “tax and spenders” but would be fiscally responsible and pro-business. Americans fell for it like Charlie Brown, she became Speaker, and one year later, the deficit was 2-1/2 times bigger. 

 

Now, add one more broken promise to the list: despite all that hot gas about demanding new leadership from both the young “progressive” firebrands and the faux “moderate centrist” Democratic candidates, just as I’ve told you for ages, it’s virtually a certainty that Rep. Pelosi will be House Speaker again.  Wednesday, she gained more votes from Democrats by agreeing to a term limit deal that would hold her to four years as Speaker, so she would have to step down in 2022.

 

The part that goes unsaid: She’ll be 82 years old in 2022, and might actually want to leave anyway.  Also, the deal doesn’t include the time she’s already served as Speaker, so her “four-year limit” will actually let her serve eight loooooong years as Speaker.  Finally, if you really think that after another four years of digging in and solidifying her power, that she’s going to be held to any four-year-old oral agreement to step down, you’re delusional (as Lucy said to Charlie Brown, “Funny thing about this document…It was never notarized.”)

 

In fact, there is only one way to keep Nancy Pelosi from being the Speaker of the House from now until they carry her out feet first, if that’s what she wants. That is for Americans to come to their senses and save their country by voting the Democrats far out of power again in 2020.  Even then, if you think she won’t become the House Minority Leader again, then I have a football I’d be happy to hold while you kick it.

    They wouldn't have to go to a Muslim country. How about a socialist one, like Norway or Venezuela?

    With all due respect... Stop saying Nancy Pelosi will raise our taxes because, even if the house sends a bill to the senate raising taxes, it is unlikely the senate will even put it up for a vote. And even if they do, it likely won't get the 60 votes it would need. And even if they did pass it, people forget about the veto pen! But I agree the house will be filled with investigations that might put Robert Mueller to shame and will make the American people wish they had never voted for a progressive congressman / woman as they realize their tax dollars are wasted on such garbage.

    Maybe it's far past time to impeach all liberals for high treason and since they are not going by their Constitutional Oath ,charge them as such with a caveat of either a one way ticket to any Muslim Country,or execution by public hanging
