What in the world was Nancy Pelosi saying in Massachusetts when she said that elections shouldn’t matter as much as they do?
If you listen carefully it becomes clear what she means.
Stay with me for a few minutes and I think we will see what she really means.
“To my Republican friends: take back your party. So that it doesn’t matter so much who wins the election, because we have shared values about the education of our children, the growth of our economy, how we defend our country, our security and civil liberties, how we respect our seniors.”
Listen to her! She should have said, “Take back your party career politicians because some of these folks who are who were elected in 2010 are not the big government, business as usual, tax and spend, say one thing and do another Washington insider crowd that we need here in DC.” That wouldn’t go over too well, would it? So, we have to remember that this is Pelosi speaking. Listen to the rest of that paragraph.
When it comes to a place where there doesn’t seem to be shared values, then that can be problematic for the country as I think you can see right now.
Shared values – now that is very politically correct and who could disagree with Nancy on that? But what are the values that we must share? The funding of NPR and Planned Parenthood would be two I am sure. Obamacare is probably the third value she has in mind.
She certainly knows what would solve her problem, doesn’t she? If the people are going to be so troublesome and elect Republicans, someone must make sure they have a *USDP stamp of approval.
*United States Democrat Party
Perhaps Progressive Party would be more appropriate in this case.
At any rate, what Nancy is saying is that if all Republicans will just act like Democrats it won’t matter who wins the elections.
