Is Pelosi Insane, or Just Stupid – You Decide
By David Galland, Managing Director, Casey Research
Readers of any duration know that while I don’t hesitate in pointing out the follies of bureaucrats in general, Republican as well as Democrat, I only rarely stoop to personal invective and name calling.
Yet, after watching a couple of recent video clips of the esteemed Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, I feel compelled to wonder aloud if Madam Speaker might have lost her proverbial marbles. If not, then the only possible explanation is that she’s just plain stupid. As the latter seems unlikely, at least one would hope so, given her rise to the very peak of power in the world’s most powerful nation, one has to conclude at least one of our leaders may be clinically insane.
But I’ll let you decide.
In this first clip, Pelosi suggests that members of her audience with artistic inclinations should feel free to now quit their jobs to pursue their inner muse because, hey, the rest of us have got you covered. Here’s the clip…http://www.cnsnews.com/
This second clip is even more startling, in that the Speaker goes to some lengths to explain why it is that providing extended unemployment benefits is actually a win-win for the economy. Here’s the clip. http://www.cnsnews.com/news/
Now, I sincerely feel for the chronically unemployed in this economy. And I certainly don’t think that most are too lazy to look for work, or take work they consider beneath them. This is a tough economy and it’s going to get tougher, as the latest rise in unemployment announced today confirms.
But the idea that handing out government checks is a no-lose proposition all the way around is… well, it’s either insane or stupid. You can prove the point simply by accepting Pelosi’s thesis as true – in which case, why not just start writing checks to everyone! And not just small checks but large ones.
Seriously, it’s time to consider regular testing of politicians for the mid-term onset of mental illness.
