The Queen of Washington Nancy Pelosi recently told the President “Calm down with the threats.” Maybe the queen should heed her own advice, but that is doubtful.
The queen has had control for 100 days, she and the other Dems were voted in by people who were mostly doing so to voice their displeasure with the war. What they have done is show complete contempt to those who voted them in. They apparently are not brave enough to withhold funding the war because the polls say it’s not popular. Then in order to get their version of the bill passed, they pile a load of pork into the bill in order to coerce fence sitter’s into voting for their bill.
The people that have voted them in, like Kos Kiddies, Code Pink, moveon are pissed! They thought they had people in Congress they could control, what it turns out is that they were lied to by some of the best career politicians out there.
However, the queen does have a few success to point to. Remember her agenda of carefully poll-tested legislation that she said she would get passed within 100 legislative hours? She did succeed there, the House voted to raise the federal minimum wage, allow federally funded embryonic stem cell research, implement recommendations of the 9/11 commission, cut oil and gas tax breaks, allow Medicare to negotiate drug price discounts and cut student loan rates.
So while this sugar coated legislation does look good for her, she has failed to hand over what the extremist groups really want, an end to the war and impeachment of the President, two issues she cannot deliver.
