Somehow the Wicked Witch of the West, Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), was once again determined to be the Democrat leader in the House of Representatives. However, though her party has lost control of the House, the Senate and the White House, she still had the audacity to go on national television and declare that the American people don’t want to change directions from the Marxism that she and Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah have been pushing us for nearly a decade.
Appearing on CBS’ Face the Nation, Pelosi was asked by host John Dickerson, “The Democratic Party is in a moment of questioning about its identity. You were re-elected to lead the Democrats in the House. What do you tell Democrats who want a new direction and then, go to you, what are you going to do differently?”
“Well, I don’t think people want a new direction,” replied Pelosi. “Our values unify us and our values are about supporting America’s working families. That’s one that everyone is in agreement on. What we want is a better connection of our message to working families in our country, and that clearly in the election showed that that message wasn’t coming through. But we are united in terms of the security of our country, which is our first responsibility. To be smart and strong and not reckless in how we protect the American people, strong in how we protect our economy.”
Dickerson then asked about her party’s collapse over the years. “Here’s my question, though, Democrats since 2008, the numbers are ghastly for Democrats. Democrats are down 10 percent, in the House down 19.3 percent and in governors 35 percent. The Democrats are getting clobbered at every level over multiple elections. That seems like a real crisis for the party?”
“You’re forgetting that we went up so high in 2006 and 2008, and let me just put that in perspective,” she said, ignoring what followed. “When President Clinton was elected, Republicans came in big in the next election. When President Bush was president, we came in big in the next election. When President Obama became president, the Republicans came in big in the next election.”
Well, it’s my guess that the American people do want a new direction. I’m just skeptical that we are actually going to get one, but time will tell.
