Okay, a short 2nd political moment…

If I haven’t mentioned before that Nancy Pelosi is an idiot, I’d like to make that point now. Some action by the government is necessary. Bipartisan effort to accomplish this is necessary. Why doesn’t Madam Speaker understand this?  Why does she always feel the need to resort to the same partisan crap?   My guess is that it’s because she doesn’t understand the issues.   She certainly doesn’t seem to understand history. Her typically myopic speech this afternoon sent the markets into more of a tizzy than they were. And to what advantage?  Because just perhaps some cooperation was happening?

Nothing we do now is perfect; had congress listened to the warnings 7-8 years ago, we’d be in a different place today. But, partisan bickering seems to stop all progress.

Here’s what I think is happening: We have an election in just a few weeks.  One side is using this crisis – at the expense of the American people – to confuse the issues, knowing that the automatic response is to blame the current president for any economic issues, even if the root can be traced back to a Democratic administration.

I know I’ve said this before, and I’ll say this again: the 2 party system is hurting us.  Partisan politics is deadly. Stop it.

  1. Other bloggers are certainly entitled to their opinions.

    Btw, how many political parties would you like to have?

    Personally, I’d like to deflate the 2 major parties that we have.

  2. Take a deep breath and look around. Many bloggers, including a number of conservative pundits, have looked at the Pelosi remarks and find them scarcely partisan. A CNN talking head also made the same remark on air. This is a very complicated situation with many moving parts. Since McCain “parachuted in” to save the day, the difficulty increased quite a bit as he tried to “use this crisis” to resurrect his floundering campaign.

    A lot can happen in 30+ days. As credit continues to tighten and the slowdown in business becomes more apparent, many of the House members will be getting more pressure to do something.
