Idiot In Charge Award: Nancy Pelosi

Please remember that the IICA goes to people who exhibit “sheer ‘slap Americans in the face’ stupidity” instead of unbelievable escapades like The Fed losing $9 Trillion dollars.

Today’s IICA goes to Nancy Pelosi for comments made at a Florida senior center while she was trying to rename the “public option” to “competitive option”; probably on the advice of some focus group that really did not understand how dense this lobotomized walking meat suit actually is.

Here are the money quotes from Breitbart:

“You’ll hear everyone say, ‘There’s got to be a better name for this,'” Pelosi said. “When people think of the public option, public is being misrepresented, that this is being paid for with their public dollars.”

So the public option is not being paid for by American Taxpayers and Small Business?  All monies that flow from the government come from the taxpayer, or in our case, The Federal Reserve that just cannot stop printing money which we have to pay interest on.  How does that work again? Yes, that’s right; we pay interest to a private banking cartel who prints our money and loans it to us, all with the blessing of Congress.  (And people wonder why there is an IICA.)

Pelosi said that was a misconception and that any taxpayer money used to start up the public option would be repaid. She also said such an option would ultimately drive down government health care costs.

Any taxpayer money used to start up the public option would be repaid?  Kinda like the T.A.R.P. money which has not been, and the amounts that have are already being eyed by Barney for Main Street TARP?  Does that not mean that our hard earned money is going bye-bye, never to be seen again.

Like I said, lobotomized walking meat suit surrounded by more lobotomized walking meat suits.  Had a recent look at the Debt Clock lately? I have the link on speed dial.

On another note, I wonder how much of this is going to ACORN?

  1. Nancy! What an idiot. I’m a black man, native Californian, retired army, and 100% American. Nancy is just a reflection of the entire DC crowd. Out of touch with Americans and pompus. I was a teenager growing up in Oakland during the 50’s. We were poor but you could walk in the hood with no worries about gangs bothering you. Work was available. Now…forget it! Why? Because we keep voting the same stupid people back into office. They bring the same broken down ideas into DC. For heavens sake…..lets get rid of these jello brains before its tool late. In 2010 vote every person in office out! Republican, Democrat or Green……get rid of these morons. You cannot solve a problem using the same thinking that caused it. Thats what you get when you vote the same stupid people like Nancy back into office.
