Nancy Pelosi: We'll lose 500 million jobs A MONTH without a stimulus package!

OH NO! Unless we pass the stimulus package, we're going to lose 500 MILLION JOBS a MONTH! EVERYONE PANIC!!!!!!!!!1!!11!!!1!!!1!!!

So, let's see... there are approximately 300 million people living in the United States at the last census count. But somehow, we're going to lose 500 million jobs? A month?! And all because we won't bend over and take it with a great big smile on our faces. Heaven forbid Americans actually question what Democrats are trying to do in Washington! I guess we better shut our traps and just let them go ahead with their massive $800 billion pork-laden spending spree, because otherwise, we are clearly screwed.

Hear that, all you conservative right-wingers? All of you Blue-Dog Democrats? There will be no hesitating at all to accept the Porkzilla Plan. Everyone needs to just stop worrying so much and let the Democrats sink the economy. I mean, jeez. What's the deal with all of this "thinking for yourselves" baloney? Obama is in office, people! We've got hope'N'change now! You're supposed to just be mindlessly swallowing everything we say! Got that??

In all seriousness, I think this little slip-up shows a few different things. First, it shows how completely out of touch Nancy Pelosi is... although, when you're getting up into the trillions I can see how it can be difficult to keep track. Second, it shows how quickly Nancy Pelosi is willing to try to use fear to get what she wants. Third, and most telling, it just goes to show how journalism is completely dead right now. If Sarah Palin or John McCain had said this three and a half months ago, the media would've plastered it all over the news as a major headline in every newspaper and on every network. But because it's Nancy Pelosi, there's nothing. Crickets chirping.

Oh, and remember -- this is supposed to be the bestest, most ethical, least corrupt, most awesome Congress EVAH!

JLawson:

More and more this whole stimulus package smells like a scam. "Buy it now! Don't think! The ENTIRE POPULATION OF THE COUNTRY WILL BE OUT OF WORK NEXT MONTH IF IT'S NOT PASSED!!!11!!!!"

Makes me wonder if the best thing to do is just not have any stimulus package at all. Sure, a lot of favors and pork will have to go through the regular payment process (IE the annual budget) but maybe that wouldn't be a bad thing.

Matt:

Does it make a difference if 500 million jobs are lost due to a lack of "stimulus," instead of outsourcing?

How about we suggest a compromise with Pelosie. We'll only ditch the jobs americans don't want to do, and any under an H1b or other specialty visa.

DaveD:

I think she is also referring to the millions of jobs that will be lost to those Americans not yet born (well, that is if they're ALLOWED to be born under the Pelosi stimulus proposal)who will be responsible for paying for this debacle. Geesh is she one weird lady or what? I gotta believe Obama must be banging his head on his desk in the Oval Office wondering how the Pelosi/Reid comedy troupe ever got a gig in Washington in the first place. If I were Obama I would be praying that the Republicans gain majority control of Congress in 2010. At least they've been trying to work with him up to this point.

Brian:

Oh no! Pelosi made a speako! She said "million" instead of "thousand"! Let's take her literally and get enraged! This clearly means she is unethical and corrupt! Where's my exclamation point key?! Here it is! Now I don't have to be cogent anymore! Thank you, Nancy, for giving mindless hate reflexes something to react to!!!!!!!!!1!!11!!!1!!!1!!!

It's OK Brian, calm down, she's a Democrat, this will get almost NO play in the media. You know not like Sarah Palin's country of Africa comment, you know that right Brian? Imagine if a republican had said this. LOL the laughs we'd have.

Brian:

Oh, you really think that reaction to Palin's Africa quote was just about that one single quote in isolation? And you really think the press and late-night comics care about the speaker of the house as much as a VP candidate?

You weren't paying attention. Signing your comment "Putz" seems appropriate.

But Brian,

That's exactly what you do to conservatives. Shouldn't the same standard apply? Or are you admitting that you support double standards?

Yes, we know that you're a bigot. The only question is if you will admit it.

Chip:

HA HA Brian, stop it you're killing me, you're so funny.

Seriously you realize,

A)San Fran Nan is trying to instill fear to get her agenda passed, I thought only Republicans did this.

B)San Fran Nan said MILLION, you know with an M, on more than just THIS occasion

C)The media has a double standard in not playing this like they would do with someone with an R next to their name.

and you're still a putz.

WildWillie:

I was wondering what resident liberal troll will come to the quick defense of Pelosi and sure enough, Brian wins. Pelosi is third in line to be president, but if GW had a word stumble, it was a sign of his inability to think, but NOW, just a stumble. You lefties are pathetic, but oh so predictable. ww

Genius, she's second in line. We shall all now ridicule you for your gaffe the way you ridicule Pelosi.

Oh, yeah, that's right, we were waiting for years for Bush to have a single word stumble, and when he finally did, we pounced on it and made the most of it! Oh, how delicious that was, with only a single stumble to cite. And how we miss it, since he's never again done it since.

Moron.

Ballistic? Are you kidding? There's no one easier to mock on Wizbang than Cassy (and she hardly writes "often", since her range is limited to anger rather than analysis). It's right-wingers like her that put the Dems in charge. So I concur... keep on writing, Cassy! We still have that 60-seat majority to get in 2010!

Pretty much. He's been rantingt and foaming far more since the inauguration. Must have the hots for Botulin Nancy too, see how fired up he got to defend her. She said it, she owns it.

I'm still willing to give Obama a chance, but after the last couple of weeks watching Obama stumble haplessly from bad idea to bad idea, I'm losing confidence in him rapidly.

He's a n00b with good intentions and poor judgement. That's all.
