Our leaders are pathetic

This is disgusting.


“I would hope not,” Pelosi said.  “I would hope that by now—well, me, I’m with the 11th Amendment, so.”

“Is it the 11th Amendment?” she asked.  “That—14th is it?”

“Whatever it is, I’m with the Constitution of the United States,


Really? F'king really? How many years have you been in Congress?

She should have been fired on the spot...

Just a question - Should Mitch McConnell have been fired when he publicly stated that the House repubs were going ot sit on their hands and do absolutely nothing but block every initiative the president wanted passed?

Yes...

I watched the first minute or so wuntil she started talking about baseball.  So mayb I missed it.  But is this just about not knowing which amendment is which?  This to me is inconsequential.  I don't remember which one is which but I do know what the overall content is and also know that when I need to know, I can look it up.  Maybe you are saying that as an elected official she should have them all memorized?

Far less of an issue to me that what Angelica has raised. 

On the other hand, I admit that there could be something further on in the video.

“The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president”

That is what McConnell stated that bothered me the most.

Anyone in Congress who states their main goal is anything but serving the people of this country to the best of their ability needs to go...

Ok, you do not have an issue with a member of Congress who has been in office since 1987 not knowing what amendment she is talking about?

I guess we have drastically different expectations of our leaders.

But do you you think this is the worse thing Pelosi has said? I was just referencing this as yet another disgusting remark in her pathetic career.

Pelosi really should have been fired when she said this:


“But we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it....

The 11th amendment and 14th amendment are so vast in difference to what they pertain to.  For any congressional leader who is put in office to defend, apply and protect our constitution, especially one who has been around so long, not to know these by heart is pathetic.

To outright not work on behalf of the American citizenry is also pathetic.


To wait and see what is in the bill is pathetic.


Yes, our leaders are pathetic.

"Ok, you do not have an issue with a member of Congress who has been in office since 1987 not knowing what amendment she is talking about?"

Without the rest of the conext around what she was saying, it is hard to say.  I am sure she knew the content of theamendments but my point was about memorizing which number is which. As an example, I work with any vareity of chemicals and yet do not have their moelcular weights memorized.  They are the bottle and when I need them, there they are.

I am guessing that there are many others in Congress who would fail that test.

Yes Buck, I do agree with you about that healthcare bill statement.  THAT is pathetic.

This is our constitution and it's amendments.

This is what our Congress is supposed to be utilizing on a daily bases in dealing with legislation and regulations.

Yes, I expect a person who has been a member of Congress for 25 years to know that without fail. That is their guiding document in all their endeavors in Congress.

It is not that difficult.

Our founding fathers would be rolling in their graves right now with all of this. Not just Pelosi but all of the members who are there simply to maintain control and power over Congress.

It's gross negligence on their part. They are robbing us right in front of our faces and laughing about it...

Yes and those who can't pass should go...

"This is our constitution and it's amendments."

Yes, I understand and my concern is far more that they understand the content and are using that content in their law-making.  (Or how ever they interpret that content) rather than memorizing which amendment is which.

ON the other hand, she did seem a bit cavalier about it and that is far more of a concern.

My thought is the length of time she has had on the job. The position she held.  She was Speaker of the House.  Yet, she fumbles on something that is the basic guideline for how they operate.  The Constitution, which rules that particular job.



Maybe she has burn out and should retire..

She thought it was cute and funny and then tried as quickly as possible to move on to something else.

Cavalier?

It's much more than that. It's contempt...
