The fact that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is a douchebag isn’t earth-shattering news. If you’re surprised by that the fact that the sun rises in the east probably freaks you out every morning, too. That being said, she really stepped up her game this week.
When Republicans and Democrats were making progress on drilling offshore for oil to cut our dependence on foreign oil, something even Democrats claim to support, she chimed in with her usual level-headed comments.
“This call for drilling in areas that are protected is a hoax, it’s an absolute hoax on the part of the Republicans and this administration. It’s a decoy to punt your attention away from the fact that their policies have produced $4-a-gallon gasoline.”
Well done, Madame Speaker, way to put the needs of the American people ahead of your left-wing constituents. Forget the fact that gasoline prices have doubled since your party took over Congress, it’s the other guy’s fault!
Pelosi is rich, or at least married rich, and lives in a very exclusive area of San Francisco; gas prices don’t mean anything to her, especially since her cross-country flights are paid for by taxpayers. And can you really imagine her going to the grocery store to buy her own food? Hell no! So what does she care? It’s not like her friends are hurting either, you know she doesn’t roll with “average Americans.”
While she’d like to blame Republicans for high gas prices, she may want to look into a mirror (a shatter-proof one, for her own safety) and look at the Democrats. In the 1990’s Bill Clinton vetoed drilling in ANWR because it wouldn’t have an impact for 10 years. Well, it’s 10 years later…and here we are. And now liberals still won’t let us drill in ANWR because it won’t have an impact for 10 years. We won’t have a new fuel source and/or the infrastructure to deliver it for more than 10 years, so maybe we could multitask?
Not according to the Speaker. Which is why she’s a total douchebag and our Douchebag or the Week. Well done, ma’am.
