Opening Arguments

Whopper of the day


Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says after the election she would like to see Congress back in session to pass a second stimulus package.

"Grow the economy, create good paying jobs, in the future in a way that is a green recovery, geared toward Main Street and is fiscally sound," said Pelosi.

And on concerns that Democrats might control both the White House and Congress she said the following:

"Elect us, hold us accountable, and make a judgment and then go from there. But I do tell you that if the Democrats win, and have substantial majorities, Congress of the United States will be more bipartisan," said Pelosi.

Bigger majorities will bring more bipartisanship. I like that! That means I can eat more and weigh less. We can spend more time at the office and get closer to our families. We can watch more television and become more physically fit. We can listen to politicians more and become smarter!

As usual Nancy Pelosi's comments make no since at all. If the Dems control both houses and the Whitehouse I bet that congress will get a nice pay raise.

One of the things that I find extremely humourous about "finding or creating good paying (new) jobs" is that we're hard-pressed to actually DO that here.
We (read companies nationwide) took those (old) jobs (wholesale) and MOVED them overseas or south of the border.
Now tell me HOW we're supposed to get ALL those OLD jobs back, let alone "create" NEW ones to take their place (as the pundits would ALL have us believe)?
No easy fix here, kids.

Seriously...I really, really REALLY want to know (as do a lot more of us, as well as yourself)

Right on! More bipartisanship for sure. Of course the liberal definition of bipartisan is "republicans give us everything we want, while liberals compromise on nothing."
