Nancy Pelosi appeared on Comedy Central’s Daily Show with Jon Stewart last week and it’s a good bet she didn’t expect what ended up happening. Things got pretty tense, pretty quick, when Stewart tried to get the minority leader to explain why government seems to function so ineptly. Pelosi went to her go-to move… Blame the Republicans.
“Right now, we have a school of thought in the House Republican caucus that is anti-government, anti-science, anti-Obama. They have a trifecta that just enables them to vote against everything.”
The problem for Pelosi is that Stewart wasn’t buying it. Even he realizes that the Democrats held big majorities in both chambers during the early Obama years and that the Democrats are still in charge with their command of the Senate and the White House.
Watch the train wreck interview – it will make you smile.
Stewart said that Democrats are then required to make a stronger case. He said that Democratic governance now appears “chaotic” and their execution of legislation appears to “lack efficiency.” When Pelosi again blamed Republicans for this condition, Stewart became even more agitated.
When he asked why it was so difficult to get a company to execute the Affordable Care Act’s insurance exchange website “competently,” Pelosi replied, “I don’t know.”
“What do you mean you don’t know? How do you not know?” Stewart asked laughing.
He laughed in her face. Amazing.
Even some Democrats are getting tired of Pelosi’s hackneyed act. Former Clinton aide Lanny Davis wishes that Pelosi would just grit her teeth and apologize already. The disaster that is Obamacare is wholly the Democrat Party’s fault, and they need to come to grips with that. They wrote it, they rammed it through without ironing it out, and they implemented it like a bunch of drunken monkeys.
It’s all their fault and they should accept responsibility for its failure.
Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat leadership are a joke. One big joke. It’s nice to see the guy with the clown nose finally taking them down a couple of pegs.
