Theory of Persuasion has proven that once someone is far to one side of an issue, it is a waste of time to try and persuade them to change. Rep. Pelosi is a class act with some very good thinking skills. I would tell young ladies to aspire to her standards. So what would be the point of any further discourse? I have no need of a disagreement.
The vast majority of those quotes either: A) have little to no context (making them hard to evaluate properly) or B) consist of standard political fluff (mostly pretty mild fluff at that)
Other than the one near the top (500 million jobs) which is obviously a misstatement, which of these quotes do you find so objectionable? Yes, some involve partisan posturing, some are rhetorical junk and some seem to contradict each (again, given a severe lack of context) -- but I defy you to pick a prominent politician who isn't guilty of all the same.
If this is the where the bar is set for "screaming space cadet" then we all might as well give up now.
I'm so tired of all the political crap invading HubPages forums! If you must, can't we at least leave it in the Political posts?! I very specifically come to only Tutorials and Community because I dislike all the politics and religion stuff in the forums. I am, by far, not the only person here who feels that way.
I always wonder how clueless people are....what did he have against the mail room intern or the secretary? Yeah, the Pres. opens his own mail......right after he washes the coffee pot and puts on a next pot of coffee........
