Pelosi chastises GOP for not caring about Kwanzaa or Jewish holidays

Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has been known for speaking in riddles that only she can decipher. She is all about the mystery, remember? Who could forget her famous line about Obamacare, We Have to Pass the Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It” ?

Pelosi’s latest speech to her peers on the House floor revolved around the holidays and the fiscal cliff, and  . . . well, I’m not sure exactly what her point was. She addressed Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s statement made to Republican members to expect to stay in town through Christmas Eve and be ready to return the day after Christmas. Pelosi began with a chastisement:

“Why are we having all this subterfuge and this, that and the other thing? Why are we being told make a reservation on Christmas Eve and one on the day after Christmas to come back? Is there not an appreciation for the Jewish holidays? The Christmas holiday? Kwanzaa? All the other things that families come together around?”

“Well, the American people care about it. And they want to shop for it. They want to have family dinners and they want to exchange gifts as is the tradition, but they really don’t know if they’re going to be able to pay the bill in January for the purchases in December.”

Pelosi was presumably trying to make a case for why members of Congress should be able to ignore the fiscal cliff problem and enjoy their holidays. Perhaps she’ll take our latest poll, Should Obama & Congress get a holiday vacation? 

The animated Pelosi may have been heading for a comprehensible argument until she took a sharp turn off her own cliff and mentioned that the American people have no idea how they are going to pay their holiday shopping bills in January. Oops, now I’m confused, again.

    Why can't nature be good to us and take this old bag out of existence? She should be the poster child for all that is wrong with America. Unemployment, loss of value to currency, unstopped spending, no budget, no real effort to deal with our issues, Socialist policies such as Obamacare, the increase of the welfare state. Screw January I do not know how we are going to pay the bills ever at this rate. They live in a complete fantasy world in Washington.

    Does this woman ever have anything of substance to say? She makes no sense, it is hard to believe she is one of the people running our country. Did you read the bill yet Nancy?

    Are there that many stupid people in San Fran that keep voting for her?

    Seriously folks,I believe that Nancy Pelosi is showing signs of dementia . We should not make fun of her ,(although I admit I have) but she really should not hold an elected posistion in the House. Not only Nancy ,but all of our elected officials over 60 or showing physical or irrational behavior should undergo medical and psyc evals each year to determine their eligibility to hold office.The decisions they made and make have serious impact on this country. I am also thinking that we really need to look at term limits and age limitations. There are many that I question their ability to govern.

      I was just telling my son that same thing about Pelosi. The problem is, who would you get to test them that couldn't be bought off? It's not like you can do a blind evaluation.

    Pelosi has not only lost it she doesn't, even what because she always was an idiot

    Looks like she's drunk or suffering Delirium tremens. Although, as already mentioned, dementia is a possibility. But, she has always babbled her whole tenure so, what's new?
