Pelosi's Bunker Mentality

Barack Obama seems content to let Nancy Pelosi do whatever she wants. I guess he’s the campaign guy and she’s the actual govern-er? Clearly, he holds neither himself nor his partner, The Pelosi, to these promises which were, after all…just words.

So, a few hours ago, I read this:

As Steny Hoyer talks, a Republican aide reports that: “Dems are blocking access to their press conference. There is a list, and if you’re not on it, you can’t get through.” The aide points out: “This is a public space on the steps of the Capitol and the Mall.”

And Twittered:

This seems to be what they’re about: bunker mentalities, and shut doors


By “they’re” I meant, basically, The Pelosi
, who seems to live in a bunker, and increasingly reminds me of Richard Nixon at his paranoid and duplicitous worst.

At the unveiling of her new public-option (doublegoodspeaked to “consumer option”) healthcare bill, Pelosi closed the doors to the public.

She has a history of doing that.

When it was time to write the “stimulus” bill, Pelosi closed the doors on the GOP.

Earlier this month, her Democrats locked out the GOP again because they had something to hide. Despite all the transparency talk, The Pelosi and her party always seems to have something to hide.

Although the press seems to find it charming, Pelosi’s Bunker Mentality, which is one part doublespeak and one part seething partisanship, seems to be spreading throughout her party, and it is not good for us, not at all:

New Jersey Democrats to NJ SecState:
“Let us cheat; give us your permission to cheat”.

Kerry to Law Library of Congress: “revise recent history, please,” so that it may conform to our worldview.

Grayson:
Says GOP are “knuckle-dragging neanderthals who want to dictate to America.” He says that in the face of daily (and strong) evidence suggesting that it is the Democrat party, now the establishment, who is telling America what it is going to take, regardless of what it actually wants.

Hillary:
Blithering fool. She really is a dreadful SecState.

Meanwhile, NY’s new Archbishop, Timothy Dolan, cut from the mold of the Mighty John O’ Connor, dares to call out the NY Times for their overt anti-Catholic bias.

The Catholic Church is not above criticism. We Catholics do a fair amount of it ourselves. We welcome and expect it. All we ask is that such critique be fair, rational, and accurate, what we would expect for anybody. The suspicion and bias against the Church is a national pastime that should be “rained out” for good.

The NY Times, unsurprisingly, declines to publish.

Thank goodness, we still have alternative media, for a while, anyway.

I suggest we dissent while we still may. Remaking America seems to include the narrowing, not the broadening, of our fundamental freedoms.

More on controlling the message. They are busy, tireless little bees, aren’t they?
