We can always count on Nancy Pelosi to live in her own little private fantasy world.
(Politico)Striking a tone of disgust, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi ridicules the GOP as obsessed with its loathing of President Obama and hell-bent on hurting him politically, regardless the cost. She assigns little to no blame to the president (even though Democrats privately say that’s laughable) and instead portrays him as saintly, above reproach and the victim of jealousy or something worse.
At this point, yes, we do somewhat loathe Barack Obama: he’s made it very easy as he turns everything hyperpartisan and takes every opportunity to demonize and demean Republicans, even using the resources of the White House to do it. It’s gotten to the point where his attacks on “Congressional Republicans” are attacks on us all, attacks on 50% of the U.S. citizens. We loathe him as the President and as a politician, along with most of his politicians. That’s on him.
“You know why it is,” she said. “You know why it is. He’s brilliant, … he thinks in a strategic way in how to get something done … and he’s completely eloquent. That’s a package that they don’t like.”
Brilliant, huh? His signature legislation is underwater in popularity, and always has been. His Stimulus was a vast waste of money and a failure. His foreign policy is a disaster. And, eloquent?
