Nancy Pelosi’s Spendthrift Record as Speaker

Just caught this in a Washington Examiner editorial on Nancy Pelosi’s determination to stay on as House Democratic Leader:

Just look at Pelosi’s record as speaker. When she first took the gavel on Jan. 3, 2007, the federal government was on track to spend just $2.7 trillion that year. The federal deficit was a mere $160 billion, and the cumulative national debt was $8.7 trillion. Only 7 million Americans were unemployed, and the nation’s unemployment rate was just 4.6 percent.

Four short years later, when Pelosi handed the gavel back to the Republicans, the country looked a bit different. Spending had soared to $3.6 trillion. The federal deficit was $1.3 trillion, and the national debt was $14 trillion. Fourteen million Americans were unemployed, and the unemployment rate had almost doubled to 9.1 percent.

Wonder why Democrats don’t hold this politician to account for her record.



  1. The Democrats and the MSM won’t hold the Democratic Leadership nor the Won accountable because “ …it’s all Bush’s fault!

  4. “Wonder why Democrats don’t hold this politician to account for her record.”

    For the same reason tax cheat Charlie Rangel, murderer Al Sharpton, incompetent Joe Biden, incompetent Barack Obama, degenerate murderer Ted Kennedy, tax cheat Tim Geithner, degenerate lying rapist Bill Clinton, degenerate liar Liz Warren, degenerate corrupt liar Al Gore, corrupt degenerate liar John Edwards. corrupt lying obstructionist Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, corrupt liar Alcee Hastings, degenerate Gavin Newsom, or corrupt embezzler Jon Corzine all got away with behavior that would have been the end of any Republican.

    You can get away with anything, as long as you’re a Democrat.

  5. #4 – I would add the likes of Karl Marx, Theodor Adorno and Alinsky to your excelent list of degenerates, V the K. Of course we could go on all night and day counting them all.

  6. Gutter politics will continue as long as gutter politicians continue to be rewarded.

  7. A person with the character of a bum becomes a bully and then a brute and moves on to be a blackguard. Eventually, he settles in as a politician.

    A lowlife and looser tries out as a rascal and matriculates to certified rapscallion and settles in as a reprobate, rat and racketeer in his profitable hood, jungle and turf. The final spot for him is often as a politician.

    The scamp becomes as scalawag on his way to being a full blown scoundrel in which being a sneak and shyster and swindler and sinner and scum is no vice and perhaps even a virtue among his tribe of fellows. That tribe is often made up of politicians.

    The cheat and con artist develops into a charlatan with a cad side and a crook side and criminal intent to defraud, deceive and dissemble. Where better to practice his art than as a politician?

    These are not definitions of politicians, they are definitions of a certain school of politicians who do well by being maggots and bunco artists while bilking the commonweal.

    Because she blames the rich for keeping Levi, Obamaphone lady, concern-troll mike, and Passing By from getting everything they want right now without having to work or pay for it.

    And she has a vagina.

    The Obama Party has figured out that over half of Americans don’t care what you do as long as you play the tune to which they like to dance and blame everyone else for their problems.

    And if they occasionally pretend to care about other things, a la concern-troll mike, you just remind them that you have black skin/a vagina/hankering for underage boys, and they’ll dance back into line, feeling better about themselves for not being “haters”.

    My stock answer from henceforth whenever I hear about a lefty losing their job is, “But Obama has black skin, so you should be satisfied.”

  9. Pelosi is a strong supporter of abortion and gay marriage, thus she gets close to a 90% voter approval rating from those who elect her from her home district within San Francisco Bay area. The concern is more for those two special interests than it is for the health of the economy or welfare of the nation. That is why she gets elected.
