Pelosi guarantees Dems will retain House in November

By Matt DeLong

Earlier this week, House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) made a bold prediction about how his party will fare in the November, but House speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is kicking the trash-talk up a notch.

In a new fundraising email from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Pelosi guarantees in no uncertain terms that Democrats will retain control of the House of Representatives.

Here is what will happen in November. Democrats will keep control of the House. Period.

Pelosi adds that she's got a secret weapon up her sleeve to ensure triumph ... you!

If Nancy has to give up the gavel, what will happen to Pelosi Air? Can you imagine the expression on Maxine Water's face (just think about it for a nano second)! Imagine the mumbles coming from Barney Frank! Can't you see Henry Waxman pitching a hissy fit?? Then, there is poor old Charlie Rangel who may no longer get extensions on his 'corruption investigation' -- he just might decide to spend more time with his wife.

It is nearly worth a vote for a republican just to see these characters trip all over themselves!! What would also be interesting would be to watch Obama throw them all under the bus 'for not running effective campaigns'!!!

I guess Nancy Pelosi's bony, jewel-clad fingers are being pried away from the speaker-ship gavel and she does not like it a bit. To hand the gavel over to Boehner would be the ultimate humiliation to her. But what an immense treat that would be - to get ride of Nancy! This is just a preview of attractions yet to come in November. I can hardly contain myself with joyful glee. The odds that the Democrats will keep the House are rather slim. Hallelujah!

Dander is a talking example of everything that is bad in America. Get treated and once again learn to take care of yourself and don't rely on your mommy, the federal gov't to take care of you. November will show the start of reclaiming the country from the liberal scum culminating in 2012 when the poser in the WH is sent back to the slime of Chicago where this community organizer belongs.

Liberalism is a disease!!

Discovery Announcement ~ The densest element known in the Universe has been found!

Pelosium:
A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the densest element yet known to science. The new element has been named Pelosium. Pelosium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 311.
These particles are held together by dark forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.
The symbol of Pelosium is PU.
Pelosium's mass actually increases over time, as morons randomly interact with various elements in the atmosphere and become assistant deputy neutrons within the Pelosium molecule, leading to the formation of isodopes.
This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientist to believe that Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as Critical Morass.
When catalyzed with money, Pelosium activates CNNadnausium, an element that radiates orders of magnitude more energy, albeit as incoherent noise, since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons as Pelosium.

Sexism is rampant among these comments. It is obviously painful for the old-boy Republican network to witness the most effective and accomplished Speaker since Sam Rayburn. Pelosi had been uncanny in her accuracy in the past. Watch out right-wingers!

From another Pelosi story today:
"If we had healthcare sooner, if we had energy sooner, if we had an education bill sooner – they are all three pillars of job creation – and that would have resulted in more jobs created by now,” Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters Thursday at her weekly press conference.

So raising costs on businesses encourages them to hire more and helps the economy... and the Dems are going to hold the House, guaranteed?

Wow... someone needs to check her meds; she's off them.

But maybe she's right. Lets have all businesses throw away 20% of their gross profits to simulate the higher costs, taxes, and regulations she wishes had gotten passed. If this magically creates hundreds of thousands of new jobs the Democrats can keep the House.

If businesses fold due to not having enough profit to maintain their business, lets admit she's vacationing in crazy-town and accept that she's probably not basing her statements on reality.

Anyone willing to try this experiment? Any companies out there think losing a lot of their income to new costs would help them hire more people?

Seriously? Really? That's what you think, Madam Speaker. Just like what you said in regards to the Health Care bill. "We must pass it so you all can know what's in it." Take your own advice and "we must vote first, so we can see if we hold the house. Period."

Liberals... you gotta love their nonsense!

Like her or hate her Pelosi gets things done and has tended to be right on most issues. People are still engaged in the process and the economy is hurting after a clear running aground under the GOP's watch. It's a weak tea offering when that same party is claiming to be capable of getting us out of their mess when they have nothing new to offer. They simply haven't learned from their policy mistakes that put us in the situation to start with.

DON'T FORGET A GENERIC POLL HAS BURNS IN AHEAD OF THE DEMOCRATIC PERSON RUNNING FOR MURTHA SEAT AND LOOK HOW THAT TURNED OUT.

AND WHILE WE ARE ON POLLS I WONDER DO ALL OF THEM FOLLOW THIS PETICULAR PATTERN:

Here Is Some Background On Ex-Republican Operator Scott Rasmussen That The Traditional Media Refuses To Point Out, Despite It Being Obvious And Readily Available:

For the period from 18 months to 4 months before any November election, Rasmussen uses a likely voter ("LV") screen which is manipulated to heavily and disproportionately overweight the poll with Republican voters.

1.This (obviously) shows Republicans in a better position than all other pollsters.

2. The purpose of his "polls" during this time frame is to:
a) Convince hesitant potential Republican candidates to run
b.) Convince Republican incumbents not to retire,
c.) Convince corporations and large individual donors to give more cash to Republican candidates and committees

3. Scott Rasmussen had admitted he doesn't poll urban and the young! (in short he only poll republican whites conservative voters!


In sum: Rasmussen polls more than 5 months from elections are partisan tools for media and candidate and donor consumption and should be seen as such!

In 2001 Rasmussen self-published a book on privatizing Social Security, titled A Better Deal; Social Security Choice, and thus joined the Republican effort to promote that issue.

In 2003 and 2004, as a campaign consultant, Rasmussen received $95,500 from the Republican National Committee and another $45,500 from the George W. Bush campaign.

NEXT TIME ONE OF THESE CRANK PUMPS OUT A RASMMUSSEN POLLE...TELL THEM THANKS AND PROCCEED TO USED IT FOR BUTT WIPERS!

Generic ballots aren't real ballots, now, are they? Put names on those ballots, put heads with the names, make the heads talk, and the game changes - completely.

TeaPers are going to wreck this election for the Republicans. Count on it. That's the secret weapon Pelosi ISN'T talking about.

I JUST LOVE ME SOME NANCY PELOSI!

Robert Gibbs was butt kissing to David Gregory (I don't know why) but even he must know that the HOUSE DEMOCRATS don't have the RATS like the Senate has. Can anyone say? Ben Nelson!

The House Democrats has passed majority of the Obama agenda and the Senate is seating on them. The Senate take it and water it down much more for three republicans.

You can't tell me there aren't probably hundred of bills the House passed that is progressive and will help the American people. I don't blame Nancy for coming out swinging at Gibbs. That why if Obama runs again, he needs more forceful people on his side (To off-set his cool demeanor).

I MEAN WHAT WAS THIS GUY THINKING COMING OUT AND UNDERMINDING THE VICE-PRESIDENT. THAT'S WHAT THE BASE WANT TO HEAR! NOT SOME SCARY BACKTRACK COMING FROM THE PRESS SECRETARY

DON'T LET ROBERT GIBBS DO ANYMORE TALK SHOWS. ACTUALLY DON'T LET GIBBS, AXELROD AND JARRETT DO ANY TALK SHOWS.

SEND THEM BACK TO CHICAGO ALONG WITH RAHM EMANUEL.

THAT'S THE MOST WEAKEST, SNEAKIEST GROUP OF PEOPLE I EVER MET

THANK YOU NANCY
THANK YOU VP BIDEN

WE NEEDED TO HEAR THAT. AND NOT THAT DOUBLE TALK THIS PRESIDENT AND HIS STAFF PUTS OUT BECAUSE THEY'RE AFRAID OF THE GOP TALKING POINTS!

WHAT A BUNCH OF COWARDS!
