Pelosi Is No Longer Even Trying To Appear Sane

March 20, 2014 by  

Cue up the laugh track. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) delivered some real gut-busters Thursday as she talked to reporters about President Barack Obama’s record and explained the finer points of his healthcare overhaul.

Pelosi has claimed that midterm voters will support Democratic candidates because November leaves time enough for them to reap the benefits of Obamacare and look past damning headlines from earlier in the year.

She doubled-down during her press conference, telling reporters that it simply isn’t true that Democrats are running away from Obamacare.

“This isn’t about politics. This is about the health of America,” she said. “We don’t weigh its value as to what it means politically. We weigh its value as to what it means to the health, well-being, economic and health security of America’s families. Just because people say, I don’t want to repeal it, but I do want to fix it, doesn’t mean they’re walking away from it.”

She also went off on a reporter who called the healthcare law Obamacare, contending that it was a derogatory moniker designed to make Americans forget that the coverage is affordable.

“By the way, it’s called the Affordable Care Act. It’s called the Affordable Care Act,” Pelosi said. “That’s a case we have to make. We’re grown-ups.”

One reporter noted that even Obama says Obamacare; Pelosi said she’d set the President straight.

“Affordable. Affordable. There’s a reason. Affordable. Affordable. Affordable. Affordable. Affordable,” she continued her bizarre lecture. “The reason they changed the name of it is because they wanted to get away, they — the opponents — from the word ‘affordable.’ And that’s why I’m patient with some of these comments. Whatever it is, it’s infinitely more affordable than the path that we were on.”

If the aforementioned statements left any question about Pelosi’s sanity, she also claimed Thursday that President Obama has “all along extended the hand of friendship to the Republicans.”

She went on to discuss the President’s relationship with Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

“This is about as nonpartisan a President as I’ve ever served with,” Pelosi declared.
