It’s one of the weirdest things I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen it for quite a while. If you’ve read this blog for any length of time, you know I’m a consistency guy. You can’t be for something one minute because your party is for it, and then when the other party wants to do the same thing, be against it. That’s inconsistency. And at the moment, that’s the snowflake party. And by the way, that’s NOT to say the GOP is blameless in this…they do it too!
If I were to ask you for the most famous quote you’ve ever heard out of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, what would it be? You’d probably answer that its that famous line from the 2009 debates over Obamacare, “We have to pass the bill in order to find out what’s in the bill.” And you’d be right.
So, why is Nancy Pelosi NOW saying, “We have a right to know what’s in the healthcare bill before it passes!” Seems a little inconsistent doesn’t it? Are they any of you out there that can truly defend this statement as being consistent with the first statement?
And now you know what gets me pissed off about political parties, but it seems that the snowflakes are more in tune to this than the GOP. The Democrats are the ones that told the Republicans back in 2009 that they had to “give Barack Obama a chance”, yet when it comes to Donald Trump, they don’t want to do anything of the sort. This is the party that Harry Reid was in charge of in the Senate when he re-wrote the rules to include the “nuclear option”, whereby the left could approve Obama appointees (except Supreme Court justices) with a mere majority vote, not the usual 60 votes needed to shut down any filibuster. Yet, now the same party is up in arms when the Republicans use it to get Trump’s people through.
And it’s the same party that used every tactic in the book, and even wrote some new ones to pass Obamacare with absolutely no input from the Republicans, and no Republican vote in either house. Yet when it comes to repealing Obamacare, all you hear is that the GOP is terrible because they haven’t included Democrats in the process. I’m sorry, folks. That’s all trash set by the curb in my book.
If the Democrats want to be taken seriously (because who takes them seriously now with people like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi in leadership positions?), they’ve got to act consistent. They’ve got to act like they want to do what’s good for the country, and not just whine and complain. And they’ve got to be consistent. This group seems to forget that we have video tape from just a few years back of them saying exactly the opposite of what they are saying now. It’s not a sin or a crime to come out and say, “I’m being totally partisan on this bill, because I was for the opposite a few years back and against it now.” That would be a breath of fresh air. Unfortunately, when dealing with politics, usually the air is a smelly as an old gas station’s rest rooms!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
