This harkens back to the astroturf video on Tax Day, 4.15.2009 when Nancy stated:
What we are doing is investing in the future. What they want is a continuation of the failed economic policies of President George Bush which got us into the situation we are in now. What we want now is a new direction. In fact, in the president’s new initiative, in the recovery and in the budget, 95% of the American people get a tax cut. This is a tax cut for the great middle class. This initiative (Tea Parties) is funded by the high-end. We call it astroturf. It’s not really a grassroots movement…to keep the focus on tax cuts for the rich, instead of for the great middle class.
Fast forward to today and think about what she said; an astroturf movement to keep the focus on tax cuts for the rich. 2.1 Million Americans showed up in Washington, D.C. on 9.12.09 to protest this government’s socialist direction. Who exactly is getting those tax cuts? Average Americans or Andy Stern’s unions?
Now, a desperate Pelosi want democrats to believe that the Tea Party Movement is some type of fringe, freak, low-number group funded by the big guys, instead of those same democrats believing what they see, read, and hear.
Republican claims about increased momentum for this year’s midterm elections are just “hype and hyperbole,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed Friday.
In a fundraising e-mail to Democratic supporters, Pelosi said that the Democratic agenda is moving the country forward and the Democrats toward victory this fall.
“Republicans are in full-blown ‘spin mode’ attacking the president and claiming he has lost support,” she wrote. “But that is just hype and hyperbole. You and I know better — together we are moving America forward.”Pelosi’s claims come as Republicans and Democrats have begun the beginning of this election year sparring over which party is in worse condition. The e-mail was circulated by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).
Any senator or congressman that has a track record of financing big government, and limiting liberty is going to be getting the boot in November. Be warned.
For those that haven’t checked it out yet, there is a gallery of photos that I am still adding images to from the DC March on 9.12.09. Take a moment and enjoy watching American Patriots do their thing.
