Where's The Dirt?
Put Up Or Shut Up Time
First you need to understand that I don't particularly care for San Fran Nan Pelosi. She waltz's around talking about "the people's business" and "the little people" as if she is looking down her long nose at the rest of us. You see, she sees herself as a member of the political elite and is above the fray of daily life that the rest of us contend with. It is also my opinion that she is one of the most unethical members of the House of Representatives. I was hoping the camera would pan over to her when Obama announced that he wanted a law sent for his signature to outlaw insider trading by members of Congress. Won't that just make a shambles of her, and her husband's, game she has been playing for so long?
So now she has once again opened that over-sized pie hole with what appears to be a form of blackmail against Newt Gingrich. So lets set the record straight with facts rather than Lame Stream Media spin. The main question here is what is appropriate conduct, and it is her conduct that once again comes into question. So lets examine exactly what she said via this video clip of her interview Bear in mind that this is the same woman who guaranteed that the House of Representatives would remian in Democratic hands after the 2010 elections.
It's Not Going To Happen?
"There's something that I know..." Interesting statement from a Congresswoman who is supposed to be ethical and protecting the interests of this nation. Note that I said, "is supposed to be." If there is mud to be slung I have never seen The Queen Of Mean hold back her slinger yet. So that tells me that she is being the usual partisan, despicable politician she has always been. Somehow she thinks she is calling the shots. She isn't.
So the Lame Stream Media picked up her ball and started to run for the goal line with it. Their bad as it goes. She insinuated that when she was sitting on the Ethics Committee that investigated Gingrich back when that there were some secrets that are hidden in what is a public record of the proceedings. By all accounts that record is somewhere between thirteen to fourteen hundred pages long. Congress never does any publishing on a small scale. That might save too much money.
Here was Gingrich's response when queried by ABC's morning news show. Bear in mind how mindless some of our media can be when supposedly reporting the facts.
Fantasy Land Versus Reality?
I think Newt was being nice with that particular reply to a rather stupid question in the first place. I would have phrased it just a bit differently myself, "She needs to either PUT UP or SHUT UP." I know a "smear" when I see one and so should you. Envision the most "vicious dog fight" this election cycle that you can imagine then multiply it by 10 and you have an idea of what we are about to witness. I find it disgusting that while the nation continues on a slow burn we have to put up with nonsense like this. The problem is that FACTS are never used in most of this and the Lame Stream Media isn't remotely interested in obtaining the facts before opening their pie holes based upon an unsubstantiated allegation. So Pelosi it's put up or shut time once again and we won't wait to "see what is in it."
As the rest of the story goes, Pelosi's office issued a statement that she didn't have any "dirt" on Gingrich and what she said was misconstrued. Now go back up and watch her exact wording when she replied to the question posed. See! We're all just her stupid peasants who can't under the English language and don't comprehend. A quote from her spokesperson:
“The ‘something’ Leader Pelosi knows is that Newt Gingrich will not be President of the United States. She made that clear last night,” Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said in a statement.
Pretty Clear Wasn't It?
One thing is clear to me. The spokesman was using the word "Leader" very loosely. I'm wondering if they speak English out there in LalaLand. The next thing that comes to mind is that this woman is one of the most despicable career, pick pockets that has ever graced the halls of Congress. She is a total disgrace.
Now I know I won't be too popular with the San Francisco crowd for calling a spade a spade, but it is what it is.
