Nancy Pelosi, Queen of Exaggeration

Apparently, every month that goes by without the stimulus package, 500,000,000 Americans lose their job. Yes, that’s right, five hundred million Americans.

The speaker should report this to the Census Bureau who thinks there are only 305,744,292 Americans as I type this post.  That’s right, in Nancy Pelosi’s America, every American along with nearly 195 Million imaginary American citizens lose their jobs if we don’t pass the stimulus package.

Maybe those are the people who voted for Al Franken?

    Is Nancy Pelosi Stupid, or Does She Think We Are?

    The House has passed an amendment prohibiting the use of federal funds to seize private property for private economic development projects. In its report on the bill, the LAT quotes the Runaway-Bride-Eyed minority leader’s reason for opposing it. She said she doesn’t want to withhold federal dollars “for the enforcement of any decision of the Supreme Court, no matter how opposed I am to that decision.”

    This is, of course, a complete non sequitur. The Supreme Court’s Kelo decision in no way said that cities must take private property or that Congress should encourage takings. It said those takings weren’t constitutional prohibited. If anything, the House bill enforces Kelo, which requires legislative, rather than constitutional, protections at the federal level. Either Pelosi is an idiot or this is an ass-covering attempt to justify her support of takings by vaguely associating it with her support for Roe v. Wade.

    The LAT report also mentions that “California and at least eight other states have laws on the books that forbid the use of the eminent domain power to condemn private property for economic development, except in ‘blighted’ areas.” Does Pelosi oppose her own state’s laws as well?
