Nancy Pelosi: Plan to Defang GOP TeaParty

As I read Pelosi’s quotes, all I can think about is how ObamaCare passed and the drama that went with it. The secret, closed door meetings with no Republicans allowed; Pelosi and the Black Caucus stalking up to the Capitol, as though they were walking from the parking lot, with that gynormous gavel; the thousands of opponents on the Capitol steps, and she laughed. Now she has a plan to ‘combat” our “hostage-taking” by “defang[ing] us.

Nancy Pelosi and Capitol Gang

Without disclosing details, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) says she has a plan for dealing with the Republicans’ legislative hostage-taking strategy. In a meeting with a small group of reporters in her office Thursday morning, she said the dynamics of the debt limit fight — where Democrats were forced to accept deep cuts to government programs on the threat of default — will not happen again.

“Suffice to say that you won’t see a repetition of what happened last week, taking us to the last minute when they didn’t even have the votes — they didn’t even have the votes — and then saying to us ‘You will be responsible for a default,” Pelosi said in response to a question from TPM.

Pelosi was reluctant to spell out just how she would stave off this situation, however. “I would say that if I were to tell you…it would be defanged,” she said, after being pressed for details. “In terms of what we — how we would approach where they go from here. And that may be a House Democratic position…. Our members were very unhappy about that vote the other day. Very unhappy.”

Andrew Stiles at The Corner has a idea how Pelosi might ‘defang’ us.

  • Defanged?? Has she looked in the mirror lately??

    Honestly, she is grasping at any straw to hold on to power.

  • So what is she going to do change the constitution. Democrats are funny creatures when they have power they rub it in your face but when they are out of power they act like victims
