  • Don't Play Pelosi's Head Games

    At first Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she would never support an auto bailout bill that used money originally set aside to help Detroit develop fuel-efficient vehicles. But she relented. Then Pelosi claimed she wouldn’t support a bailout bill unless the Big Three promised to drop their lawsuit against California’s emissions requirements. Now Pelosi says she is willing to support the bailout without the Big Three dropping the lawsuit, but only if Republican lawmakers support the bill. Nobody should fall for Nancy’s head games.

    This Monday Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) was overheard at the White house bragging that “we’ll get the $15 billion done” and that the cost isn’t a problem, because “it’ll come out of the existing money now, but we’ll replace it next year.” In other words, Pelosi’s fuel-efficiency fund concession was really no concession at all. And don’t expect the left to keep their promise on allowing the Big Three to continue their emissions lawsuit either. Everyone knows this bailout is just a down payment. When the auto makers come back for the second installment, Frank and Pelosi can easily slip that no-lawsuit provision back in.

    Let’s hope no conservatives fall for their false promises.

      Many know what kind of thinking Nancy has. I will never forget her words "should we drill your brains?" "Do you want us to drill your brains?" Right before the ignorance of congress went on vacation not doing their job of proposing an energy bill.

      Nancy Pelosi promised, under the "democratic leadership" in 2006 to lower gas costs. Another one who should be nationally sued under civil inaction, violent threats and negligence, failure to do her job and keep her word…along with Frank, Dodd, Reid, etc.

      Resignation for most all of congress.

      Nancy Pelosi is a dolt who is clueless. She does however crave power in an "Off with her head" kind of way. She has no idea that she would be one of the first indivduals who would befrog marched out and killed when the Middle Easterners arrive. (They aren't called terrorists anymore) Its not a matter of if but when. As speaker she will receive presidential level protection while the rest of us will fend for ourselves. Boldly, she will let holder loose to grab our guns so we cannot defend ourselves. Thanks for looking out for the little people Nancy .
