Nancy Pelosi’s career as House leader is evaporating quickly.
But she never expected her daughter to publicly remind her of her past troubles.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) capped her career in Congress with some Hollywood-level attention seeking.
Her daughter filmmaker daughter, Alexandra, just released an HBO Max documentary entitled Pelosi in the House.
One notable moment captured on the film included the moment Rep. Pelosi realized she’d been kicked out of power as Speaker of the House for the first time back in 2010.
The Tea Party wave that rolled over the country during the 2010 Midterm elections caused Republicans to pick up a stunning six seats in the US Senate, 63 seats in the House of Representatives, and 680 state legislative seats nationwide.
In the end it was the biggest Midterm election victory recorded by any party in history.
Cameras caught Pelosi calling Barack Obama on election night to reveal the unbelievable thrashing Democrats were taking.
“Hey, Mr. President, not a good night,” Pelosi complained in her call with Obama.
Of course, she didn’t bother to point out that Obamacare—a wildly unconstitutional socialist effort to take over the healthcare industry—was to blame for the Democrats’ massive losses.
With government in charge of the healthcare system, trillions of taxpayer dollars ended up flushed down the drain and in the end millions of Americans lost their healthcare plans.
That was in spite of Obama’s lie that “if you like your plan, you keep your plan.”
The idea was so awful at first blush that it took Democrats almost a year to shove the awful legislation through Congress.
Democrats realized that destroying the entire American healthcare system in favor of a socialist government scheme would amount to committing political suicide.
In the documentary, Speaker Pelosi attempted to blame the 9.5% unemployment rate during the 2008 economic collapse and the Great Recession as the reason for the Democrats’ losses rather than Obamacare.
“Our members have said they don’t regret their health care bill right across the board,” Pelosi argued. “Even if we never passed health care reform, we were still going to lose this election because of 9.5% unemployment. ‘Cause it wasn’t about that, it was about jobs.”
But the explanation failed to pass the sniff test since Pelosi helped Obama pass an $800 billion spending spree that had zero effect when it came to stimulating the economy.
In desperation, Pelosi resorted to using the lamest excuse in the book: angry white men did it.
Pelosi claimed that group was to blame for Republicans mopping the floor with Democrats since they were mad at Obama because they were out of work.
“The White male thing is just—that’s a dominant thing,” Pelosi whined. “When they don’t have a job, they get in a mood. And, um, so we’ll have to make some decisions in our caucus about how we go forward.”
You’d think Pelosi, of all people, would want to keep those white men hard at work paying taxes for her and her cronies to spend.
