What did you do with the money, Nancy?

I read stories like this, and the title is my reaction. Where was the money that Nancy Pelosi was given already?

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told colleagues on Tuesday that Democrats have an “urgent need” to give money to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in the final days before the midterm election.

On a caucus-wide, members-only conference call, Pelosi and DCCC Chairman Steve Israel, of New York, stressed that members needed to quickly pay their party dues so Democrats would have cash to run last-minute ads and maintain get-out-the-vote programs, a Democratic aide said.

I kept getting told that the Democrats were raking in the cash, hand over fist. So where’s the money, Nancy? What did it get spent on? Why is the DCCC so out of cash that it’s hitting up its members for back dues?

Tweet of the Day, Nancy Pelosi Thinks That Americans Are Serfs Bound To The Land edition.

Marvel at the wisdom of the woman who the Democratic party is officially committed to making Speaker of the House again:

…Having worked in New York while living in New Jersey, I can say with some authority: madam, you are smoking the crack. Relative tax burdens are in fact a factor that goes into deciding where to live. It’s why people move to the suburbs. It’s why people find a job in a place where property taxes are lower. It’s why some people commute for two hours just to get to work.  Then again, considering just how massive a beneficiary of privilege Nancy Pelosi is – it’s amazing what being the child of a Maryland political family can do for your public policy career, yes? – we should just be grateful that she didn’t call us ‘peasants.’

Betcha she thought it, though.

Nancy Pelosi – Shock! Surprise! – to profit from San Fran Light Rail deal.

As they say: it’s not what’s illegal, it’s what’s legal.  This probably was legal:

The top Democrat in the House of Representatives steered more than a billion dollars in subsidies to a light rail project that benefitted a company run by a high-dollar Democratic donor and in which her husband is a major investor.

When cloud computing giant Salesforce sold a large plot of land to the Golden State Warriors in April, it had House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) to thank for helping to swell real estate prices in the area.

Pelosi has worked for more than a decade to steer taxpayer funds to a light rail project in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood, where Salesforce had planned a new campus. Experts say the project boosted the value of Mission Bay real estate.

…and while I could even be persuaded that it wasn’t the most awful thing in the world (real estate deals involving new roads and railroads have not always stood up under scrutiny, to put it so mildly I don’t even know that there’s actually any ‘it’ there to put), I will be damned if I will simply accept Nancy Pelosi doing this, and then lecturing me on… well, OK, everything.  But good governance in particular.  Of course, I originally wrote ‘tolerate:’ but unfortunately I kind of have to, at least until the woman retires…

Submitted With Comment: Nancy Pelosi and her 25 Seat Pickup.

Excerpting this stream-of-consciousness ramble of hers on how the Democrats could pick up 25 seats in a midterm would not do it justice.  Simply read it – and here’s the comment: I understand why I want Nancy Pelosi to run the Democratic House Caucus.  But why do Democrats?

Nancy Pelosi is trying to stack the Benghazi committee, bless her heart.

The Democrats have caved in and announced their appointees to Trey Gowdy’s select committee on investigating the Benghazi incident.  Nancy Pelosi’s choices?

Nancy Pelosi skips Lois Lerner contempt vote for DCCC fundraiser.

Why worry about the beer can, once the beer has been drunk?

Priorities:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) did not attend the Wednesday evening vote series to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt for refusing to testify about the agency’s improper scrutiny of Tea Party groups.

She was, however, at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser attended by the president and roughly 90 guests at the home of Disney Chairman Alan Horn in Bel Air, Calif., according to a White House pool report.

On the bright side, we now can put an upper-limit monetary value on just how much the Democratic party cares about Lois Lerner’s travails.  Although I imagine that it’s probably no fun to know that your so-called ‘defenders’ don’t think that you’re worth more than three, four hundred thousand bucks? – Because that’s kind of chump change, in this business of ours.

Well, at least Nancy Pelosi didn’t claim that the Jews made Robert Gibbs do it.

I hope Nancy Pelosi stays House Minority Leader until the day she dies: “House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., brushed off former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs’ prediction that Obamacare’s twice-delayed employer mandate will never take effect by suggesting he is being paid to talk down the law that he touted as it moved through Congress.”

…I mean, don’t get me wrong: I got no particular love or respect for Robert Gibbs. It wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest to hear that he’s a trained seal for whoever cuts the checks. But I imagine that a Venn diagram would show considerable overlap between Robert Gibbs’ Customers and People Who Give Money to Democrats: I find it odd that Nancy Pelosi apparently wants to make that area smaller.  Odd, but highly amusing.

Via… somebody on Twitter, sorry.

Nancy Pelosi seems to think that #obamacare is *still* a winner.

So, Nancy Pelosi…

Um. Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi.  P-E-L-O-S-I.  She used to be Speaker of the House, remember?  Yeah, back in 2010.  She stopped being Speaker after the Republican party used Obamacare to gut the Democrats’ House caucus.  …What? Oh, no, she didn’t retire: Nancy stayed on as House Minority Leader, which is pretty much why the GOP only lost a handful of seats in 2012.  No, I don’t know why she stuck around either.

But Nancy Pelosi is still around! And she’s claiming that the GOP won’t be able to run on Obamacare this year. (more…)

Quote of the Day, Nancy Pelosi, Sith Neocon edition. #syria #p2

Allahpundit likes using a dull knife for his flensing, it seems:

Here’s Nancy recalling a chat she had with her five-year-old grandson, whom we’ll call “Pelosi 2002.” Pelosi 2002 couldn’t understand how intervening in a chaotic sectarian bloodletting with fanatics on all sides is in America’s national interest. Simple, said Pelosi 2013: The head fanatic is killing children with gas. “Didn’t Saddam do that to Kurdish children?” asked Pelosi 2002, his big brown eyes wide with confusion. No no, kidding — I like to imagine that he thought that, but kept quiet out of respect for his elders.

I have to admit, it’s entertaining to watch the Democrats on this.  The Left is stuck in a position where supporting the President means opposing the general will of the people, and they don’t have the inherent natsec credibility enjoyed by Republicans that would allow them to get away with supporting the President anyway.  You can guess just how sympathetic I am to their plight, too…

Nancy Pelosi scrambles to correct her comments on the Speakership.

I was wondering when Pelosi’s handlers would realize that the poor woman stepped in it.

Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi’s office clarified on Friday her apparent disinterest in returning to her old job as House speaker.

I’ll spare you the tortured reasoning; suffice it to say that Pelosi office would like a take-back on her Kinsley Gaffe*, and it’s a measure of the woman’s status in Congress right now that I am somewhat indifferent about her getting it or not.  Yeah, sure, whatever: Pelosi does want to be Speaker again.  (more…)
