Charen: Unfit to Govern

By Mona Charen

We have reached a point in the 2012 campaign when you long for a referee -- someone with a whistle to call foul and declare that one side has so discredited itself that it must forfeit points or be otherwise disqualified.

Nancy Pelosi, the leader who warned that we were losing "500 million jobs a month" without the stimulus bill and who said "God bless them" regarding Occupy Wall Street but condemned the tea party as "AstroTurf," has declared that the Republican Party supports E. coli. True, it's not news when Pelosi mangles the facts. But until her colleagues demote her, she remains the leader of House Democrats. Speaking at a fundraiser, she described the Republican Party as follows: "It's an ideology. We shouldn't have a government role. So reduce the police, the fire, the teachers -- reduce their role." As a mother, she continued, "You could depend on the government for one thing -- it was about, you had to be able to trust the water that our kids drank and the food that they ate. But this is the E. coli club. They do not want to spend money to do that."

In an ideal world, a loud buzzer would issue from the heavens. Foul! The Democrats have presided over an expansion of the welfare state to the point where 1 in 3 American households now receive some form of welfare. That's 100 million Americans receiving benefits -- excluding those receiving Social Security, Medicare and the Earned Income Tax Credit. Yet to suggest that the federal government must reduce the rate of increase in federal spending -- or even to cut back to the comparatively sane levels of spending that prevailed under Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- is to be the party of E. coli. Maybe Pelosi should stick to theology. She once explained that the Catholic Church didn't oppose abortion.

Don't look to the other body for relief. The Senate majority leader, who holds a post usually associated with at least a minimal level of dignity, has descended into outright McCarthyism -- claiming that "the word is out" that Mitt Romney hadn't paid taxes in 10 years. How did the "word" get out? Some anonymous caller supposedly told it to Harry Reid. Where's that buzzer? An equivalent accusation would be for John Boehner to announce that "the word is out" that Barack Obama quietly and illegally gutted the work requirements in the welfare reform law passed in 1996. Oh, wait ...

Now, an Obama Super PAC, Priorities USA, has issued an ad that is so cartoonish that it seems to have come straight from The Onion. A former employee of GST Steel, Joe Soptic, accuses Mitt Romney of closing the plant. Actually, the plant was shut down two years after Romney left Bain. Soptic then relates that his wife became ill, but because he had lost his health coverage due to the plant closing, she couldn't afford health coverage and died of cancer. Not quite. The plant closed in 2001. She died in 2006. Ranae Soptic didn't lose health coverage because of what happened to her husband. She was covered by her own employer, until an injury caused her to lose her job. The ad closes with Soptic saying, "I do not think Mitt Romney realizes what he's done to anyone, and furthermore I do not think Mitt Romney is concerned." Buzz.

As CNN and others have noted, Soptic has cooperated with the Obama campaign before and appeared in an Obama ad back in May -- though, oddly, Obama campaign advisor Robert Gibbs insists that he "doesn't know the specifics of this woman's case." Bain bought the troubled steel company, couldn't revive it and closed it. It's possible that if Bain hadn't invested in the company, it would have closed in 1993 instead of 2001. It's possible that even if Ranae Soptic's cancer had been detected earlier, she would have died anyway. It's possible that Joe Soptic might have contracted cancer if the plant had remained open, leaving his wife a widow. Who knows? The beat of a butterfly's wings in Bolivia supposedly can cause a thunderstorm in Bangor. But never let a misfortune go to waste when you can accuse your opponent of murder.

This has become the season of Democrat disgrace. Beyond running the dirtiest, emptiest and most deceptive campaign in memory, the party has demonstrated a total incapacity to govern. The Democrat-controlled Senate has not passed a budget -- the sine qua non of governing -- in more than three years. Under Reid's leadership, no budget resolution has even been brought to the floor. The federal debt, under Barack Obama, has increased by more than $5 trillion in less than four years. The economy is stalled. After saying (in a nonelection year) that he lacked the power unilaterally to alter immigration laws, the president did exactly that. The administration was so heedless of national security in its haste to laud Obama's accomplishments that even the usually phlegmatic former Obama administration secretary of defense, Robert Gates, felt obliged to tell the president's national security advisor to "shut the f--- up."

There is no cosmic buzzer. It's all up to us voters.

    Nancy Pelosi has declared that the Republican Party supports E. coli, and is the party of E. coli! WHAT????

    E. Coli Definition: ” Rod-shaped bacterium that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms, fecal-oral transmission is the major route through which pathogenic strains of the bacterium cause disease. ”

    Talk about the pot calling the Kettle E. Coli! If Nit-wit Nancy had half a brain and understood the definition of E. Coli and how it infects its hosts she would realize it is HER and her San Francisco Democrat rabid infected Progressives of the Intestinal Lovemaking crowd, who would spread their fetid Socialist ideology via both fecal and oral transmissions. I for one have had enough of her disoriented oral transmissions. My ears are burning and my head attempts to explode when she speaks. This is indeed the love they offer you when you join their miss-directed collective of secular socialist confused individuals who are unfit to govern themselves and the power of their immediate gratifications, let alone govern those who dwell in sanity in the land of the sane world of the walking working functional people of success and self-restraint who abhor them and their ideology. She is every bit as bad and dysfunctional as that mental version of Progressive diverticulitis ,Joe Soptic,,,or is that Joe Septic?

      And to our collective I say please read UN Agenda 21 – Google it.So much of the things that are going on in America, that don’t make any sense, will come to light. Americas are being brainwashed – walking around with their eyes wide shut. Few will take my advice and read UN Agenda 21. But have you read about the high speed rail line in California that they have no money to build? and the housing ‘they’ plan on building along the line (making the train stop every ? miles to pick up unknown passengers? Or how about the three inch fish that is keeping farmers from watering their lands – to produce food? Or the spotted owl that is nesting above Tombstone – and Tombstone cannot repair their water lines – so people must do without water so the owl is not disturbed! This is all part of the horrors that are happening across America due to Agenda 21. The UN Agenda is not easy to read so I suggest you read BEHIND THE GREEN MASK: UN AGENDA 21. (Makes everything understandable) Wake up America if you truly value your freedoms

      Who really cares what Pelosi says? When she was asked what her net worth was she said, “somewhere between 15 and 50 million dollars.” That is a 35 Million Dollar difference and did give me a reason to pause for a few seconds. This is what she thinks of 35 Million Smackers? There is more than one fool on the hill. Reid, with his “pocket veto” power is destroying our nation and thinks he is a wise guy? He is a punk jerk.
      The author of this article calls for a ” referee.” We are going to reduce our nation to a game of basketball? If so, who would this referee be? Who today has the integrity to call a fair play? Who, in America, is free from the money that buys our politicians, and pays their way into office? In all my years, I have never worried so for my country. This is the first time in the history that I know and have lived through where “failure” gets rewarded in such a grand manner. It now pays to be a major “screw-up” in the greatest nation in the world. I appreciate the “Wounded Warrior” charity but we must ask ourselves what kind of a country would send their brave and noble troops into battle knowing that they could not afford nor care enough to manage their wounds.
      Lie after lie we have been told. Lies by those before office, lies by those in office, lies and deceit by the media, lies by the GOP and DNC. Liars, liars everywhere and all the people did shrink. Is Soptic a grand liar as well as that kid from Georgetown University who was so worried about paying for her pills. How long did it take to see that the whole thing was staged? How can she afford to fly about the country and give her little talks, with a s___eating grin on her face? I read the other day that one third of our population is on welfare. That was meant to be a temporary thing, just in case you broke your back and your neck and both arms and both legs and could not work. It was never meant to be a way of life. It makes me want to vomit. Benjamin Netanyahu, once allowed to use the front door of the White House, had to school the president on the Muslim Brotherhood. Even with that he has allowed our Secretary of State to fly into their birthplace-Egypt and drop off bags of our money to support them. They better reread the Treaty of the Suez Canal. There is no foreign policy and there has never been one with this administration. It has been one based on relativism. Mr. Obama went on national television and told us all that we would be in Libya for days not weeks. Lies, it was a year or more and we have never been told the cost. Who gained from this? It was BP, the very same company that destroyed our Gulf, our waters and all that once lived a healthy life in it. Go down yonder and visit with the folks who live along the coast and even inland for several hundred miles. Sit down and ask them about their health. Ask them about their children’s health, ask them not about the oil but about the Dispersant that BP was allowed to dump into our waters to hide the oil. The Corexit 9500 & 9527 Made In The USA by Nalco Holding Company who was, at that time owned by none other than Goldman—? Ask them about the two headed fish that are caught in the nets, about the shrimp with four eyes. I will forever remember the BP executives walking out of the White House in their Savoy suits poking each other saying “don’t even smile, look like we have just been taken to the woodshed.” 20 Billion bucks and most is still sitting. “Love it or Leave it?” the old battle cry from the days of Vietnam. Today the words are different and not appropriate for any child who may be reading this.
      God Bless America.

      mrwilson,
      Can’t add much to that. Just want to thank you for the great and impassioned comment. Safe to assume you served? Being in my “Golden Years” and self-employed, I have time to do about 1000 hours/year of research between books and online and I agree with you 100%. I just reread “It Can’t Happen Here” this past year and Sinclair Lewis was prescient.

      I spoke to my aged, venerable and hoary headed mentor a couple of years ago before he shuffled off. He was a member of “The Greatest Generation”, WWII vet who got his GED in the Army and was the wisest person I ever knew in spite of being a lifelong Democrat. I asked him if he’d ever seen the country so FUBAR and he responded emphatically in the negative.

      The part that worries me the most is that Obama and his merry pranksters’ whole house of cards is collapsing around them and they still have that “What me worry?” attitude as if they know something that guarantees they’re not going to have to give it up.

    Nancy Pelosi is an idiot and doesn’t give much credence for those that voted her in. She panders to illegals and illegal activities. She, along with Reid and our Apologizer in Chief would be in jail for the shady things they have done if they weren’t so highly and politically connected.

      nickster99:
      It’s the nature of a lot of large cities, San Francisco in particular, to keep re-electing the Democratic machine politicians regardless of how incompetent or crooked they are. Once someone who comes from big money like Pelosi gets entrenched there’s no getting rid of her, partly because the voters are too stupid or ignorant to come up with an alternative. The only hope with Pelosi will be if she eventually goes completely over the deep end and is forced to resign due to incompetence, and based on some of the things that have been coming out of her mouth lately that may not be all that unlikely.

From the octogenarians to the newbies…..NO to Obama and Mitt all the way. Even his most staunch supporters are turning their backs in droves.

    What is just escaping me on all of this is why the latest FOX poll of registered voters has Obama at 49% and Romney at 40%. It just blows my mind that Romney is not up by 9 or 10 points with the failure of the Obama administration to accomplish anything positive with our economic situation, the stubborn high unemployment, the skyrocketing national debt, etc. Their gutter politics approach to the campaign with a series of distorted facts and lies aimed at character assassination of Romney. The refusal of Harry Reid to work with the House to improve the economic mess and his blatant lie about Romney not paying taxes or 10 years. The radical policies of this administration that has created the largest number of Americans now dependent on government handouts as Obama pushes the country toward an irreversible socialist seems to be OK with most voters.

    What is going on? Romney is so much better qualified and competent to get the problems we have under control then Obama and the differences are so obvious that it just blows my mind that it isn’t obvious that we need to elect him our next President. Socialism (Obama) versus Capitalism and individual freedom (Romney).

    It is so obvious to me that the Obama administration is defanging our private economy and expanding government intrusion and control of our lives. He is purposely undermining our energy security and weakening our national defense. I could go on and on…but I am getting so frustrated with much of the American people who continue to vote for these radicals. We have 100 million Americans on welfare which is one out of three Americans. This is outrageous. My guess is that the reason the polls are still favoring Obama is that every family on welfare, all public service union members, most Democrats and government employees, and the Blacks and Hispanics are all going to vote for Obama no matter that he is the worst President since Carter.

    Some say ignorance is bliss, but in this case, ignorance and self serving interests is taking down the country. The extreme negative ads about Romney must also be working even though none of it is true.
    So far, Romney is a tax dodger, a felon, a job killer, hates women, murdered a women by laying off her husband, etc. All untrue, but apparently effective because the polls are showing Obama hanging in there, so far.

    I am thinking I need to stop watching politics on TV or I may a heart attack before November, and if Obama is re-elected in November, I need to pack up and move somewhere I can live out the rest of my life in seclusion and peace away from the disaster that is going to happen to our country.

      JDZ,
      I stopped watching TV “news” and reading newspapers 31 October 2008 and my blood pressure is much lower. I spend about 1000 hours/year reading books and researching on the web getting more accurate information. Regardless of the validity of the information, I think the outlook is bleak. Regardless of what any polls say, I think the next election will be a coin toss. It used to be when things got like this in other countries, people would come here, but there is no “here” here anymore. Having lived abroad as a civilian in the early ’70s for a couple of years, I, like you, want to spend the rest of my life in seclusion and as much peace as possible in the country of my citizenship and in whose military I served. It’s a big country which still has plenty of places where one may live pretty much under the radar. I also am not enthused about giving MY country to Leftist miscreants.

      As of today, in Colorado, I heard:

      The New York Times/CBS Poll shows Romney leading Obama 50% to 45%

      Rasmussen’s latest poll has Romney and Obama each tied at 47%

      Public Policy Polling has Obama leading Romney 49% to 43%

      Unless one knows their methods and history, it’s difficult to know how credible any of it is though.

      It is only August folks. Romney cannot access most of his campaign contributions until after the convention. After that I fully expect there to be a barrage of ads that very clearly illustrate the failures and deceit of the Obama administration. Remember the vast majority of these polls are “registered” voters, but they seldom vote, and they are so clueless as to what is true they tend to believe whatever BS is shoveled in front of them while they watch their favorite stupid reality TV show.

    The reason that Nancy has such an “intimate” knowledge of the E-coli (and probably all the other varieties of enteric bacteria) is because her head spends so much time in close proximity to them. Really, the long list of inane comments that have dribbled from this woman’s lips should be more than enough evidence for a judge to order a temporary commitment and a psychiatric evaluation. I think they’d easily conclude that “the lights” are very dim in the areas of her brain that deal with logical reasoning and cognitive thought.

      On the rare occasions, I’ve heard her speak, I thought she was incoherent as are many others in Congress. It seems their function is to be tools for various special interest and “victim” groups and their only job requirement is to metabolize and vote appropriately. The fact that they can barely articulate sounds that approximate human speech and utter sentence fragments which are frequently non sequiturs, get paid, get the perquisites and the pensions, make our laws and keep getting reelected defies reason and sanity.

    I am anti-Obama….that you must understand. I am so tired of people saying this is a dirty campaign. A campaigne is a campaign and Americans need to know #1. Where the candidate stands #2 What the candidate has done in the past. These little forums such as this site do little to help get this message out. Take your comments (PLEASE) to the public thru news broadcasts etc so MORE people can see and hear what is and has happened. Can you imagine the numnber of people that DO NOT see this site but do, however, have a television they can watch.

      The sad thing is that there are many who only get their political education (indoctrination) and news from those unbiased alphabet news media talking heads such as George Stephanopolis. Consequently, like lemmings, they will go over the cliff and vote for the fraud in the White House.

    This is what it has come to in America. A prominent (read that, notorious) lawmaker doesn’t have the brains of a gnat. An average 8th grade student would have the accumulative knowledge (that means everything he or she has learned so far, Nancy) to see through the drivel that pours out of her mouth. Harry Reid is either a world-class liar or totally mentally incompetent, or perhaps, both. These people are making life-changing decisions for the rest of us. Lord, help us.

    pagney – that is a great idea. What broadcast station would you suggest? Limbaugh is unavailable. I have been banned from Hannity for telling him to **** about Rubio and Jindal because they are both ineligible to be on the ballot. My elected officials run the other way when I go to their townhall meetings because they have no answers to my pointed and specific questions about the economy, immigration, energy independence, smaller government, their failure to uphold the Constitution, among others. I have been all the way to the governor’s office and been told to go away by the slacker. I was a delegate to the state convention and listened to a hundred candidates say they would do all they could to defeat obama and his policies. I would interrupt their speech and tell them that I had the documentation to keep obama off of the ballot in our great state and could I give the documentation to them. Not one of the losers took the information or even my name. They just smiled and looked over my head to continue their drivel. Do you remember the governor in “Best Little Whorehouse…”? Perry can retire and do the stage version to perfection. So what do you consider next???

    I think the frequently overlooked indicator of how bad things are here is the hundreds of thousands of invaders going back to the third world cesspool across our Southern border like rats deserting our sinking ship of state.

    McCarthy was right.

    There WERE 65 (or whatever number) Communists in the FDR/Truman State Department.

    To blacken the name “McCarthy” by applying it to Harry Reid is an insult to a drunk, crotchety, obstreperous corpse.

      55 is the number and you’re correct about the comparison.

      Absolutely! Joe McCarthy knew there were Communists in the State Department. I read that he had knowledge of the Venona papers but was told he could not say anything about them. Someone postulated that it drove him to drink. He just had to put up with the slander and keep his mouth shut.

      Ms. Charen, for you to buy into Liberal slander about him does your Conservative credentials no good!

    We all know that Pelosi is a loon and the rest of the left has less than zero credibility. These people would lie, cheat and steal to retain their offices and that’s the ONLY option available to them, they have NO accomplishments of which they can be proud.

    I hope to see this administration go down in flames in November!

    I am so sick of both parties, any more. Neither one is telling the truth. Let’s all do ourselves a favor and demand from BOTH parties, more integrity.

    Folks, please know that after all the dust settles, all the false bravado, posturing, etc., BOTH parties have only their own selfish interests in mind. They are like lawyers who talk a good game against opposing counsel, only to go out for beers after both have collected their fees.

    How many of the idiots on this GOP site, or the idiots on the Dem sites understand that each party is merely arguing AGAINST what they were FOR , the last time. Just because the other side says it.

    Both DEM and GOP supporters are acting like their respective parties are the truth, the light and the way.

    How utterly stupid.

    I am only 52, and I have never seen so many people on BOTH sides, say so many idiotic things. BOTH parties are the same; useless

      You think the Republicans tell as many lies as the Democrats? You must be suffering from heatstroke. That is crazy. The Dems never stop lying. Obama and Clinton lied through their teeth during their Primary battle and neither one of them has stopped since.

      Do you actually believe that when Dingy Harry Reid on the floor of the Senate said Romney hadn’t paid any taxes in 10 years he was telling the truth? Do you believe the black congressman who said Guam was going to tip over? Do you believe the Tea Partiers are domestic terrorists? That, lady, is insanity! I think you need to clear the decks and start over!
