Pelosi displays she is not a leader

Talk about throwing a hissy fit and showing zero leadership. According to Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), none of the current financial problems are the fault of Democrats. None. Is she kidding me? This is like the coach of the team loosing a game and saying that the offensive coaching staff had nothing to do with the loss – putting all of the blame on the defense.

Wah, wah, wah. … Take your damn game ball and go home Pelosi.

The Republicans should be jumping all over this. Drudge has it on his home page and this is absolutely no way to show leadership in a crisis. (Even though I do not rate this a crisis.)

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, when asked Tuesday whether Democrats bear some of the responsibility regarding the current crisis on Wall Street, had a one-word answer: “No.” …

When asked whether the Democrats “deserve some responsibility” regarding the economic crisis, Pelosi responded: “No.”

What a way to lead. Pelosi’s statement should be plastered everywhere.

At least McCain seems to have it somewhat right, but it’s overregulation by government, not just the Democrats in Congress.

“John McCain said that this is a result of overregulation by the Democrats in Congress,” she added. “Either he doesn’t know what he’s talking about or he’s misrepresenting the facts as he knows them. But it’s simply not true.”

Get government out of the regulation business. At the same time, get them out of the education business too.

Update: Malkin provides us Nancy Pelosi: Ignorant about natural gas, referring to Conn Carroll’s post at the Heritage Foundation site. So there must be something to our supposition – Nancy is nuts.

    Does Nancy Pelosi have the brain power and common sense to be speaker of the House?
