And what "Boat" would that be?

Did Obama make the same statement as Pelosi did in the video presented?

Did Obama make reference to the same subject?

If you are going to make allegations, please substantiate them with some proof other than your say so..

Thank you

This is almost as frustrating as convincing a Christian there is no God.

Absolutely pointless.

Not as frustrating as trying to follow someone who makes "Off the Cuff" comments with no proof, substantiation or explanation..

I thought the original article was intellectually presented, I then went on to surmise we would have an intellectual debate; not random commentary with little or not relation to the subject matter.

Pelosi made those comments, not Obama. Fact

The thread is about Pelosi and her outrageous comments, not Obama. Fact

Pelosi does not work for Obama. Fact

The love or hate of Obama, while a possibly worthwhile topic for another time, would seem to worm it's way into any politically oriented discussion.

Possibly for derailment purposes?

I don't know how much access mods have to the html on this board, but my previous post agreed with you, at first, about obama being off-topic. I realized that's stupid, hence "screw that", But I mean when you start a thread off by sensationalizing the title how am I supposed to take you seriously?

you're a moderator and you're using glenn beck tactics to get people angry over nothing. The majority of people who posted in this thread have basically just squawked a reiteration of what everyone says in anti-obama threads.

There was so much of all the same things, you can imagine how it might feel just like an obama-hate thread. There's been so many they all kinda blur together into one big pile of BS.

I'm sorry, but that can be disputed. It is accepted political fact the President is defacto leader of his party. Don't you remember all those rumors months ago about Pelosi being ousted because she couldn't muster up a vote on the Health Care Bill? Even Bush controlled Congress when he was in office. The legislative has taken a backseat to the wishes of the executive. In the original context of the constitution it would be Obama working for Pelosi, but in today's practice it is something quite different. If he wanted rid of her, he could do it quite easily. He would simply turn the party against her. Pelosi is in truth just a pusher for what Obama wants in Congress and that is all.

What do you mean vote them out? You think that one is better than another? Also, do you think that the average person will turn there tv off long enough to even tell the difference?

I don't. That is why I believe that what's going to happen is going to happen. I wonder how many people still think that writing their congressman is a effective? Seriously.

Throughout all of history, there was only one course of action that ever made a difference in the grand scheme of things. And I'll give you a hint, it didn't involve talking or voting.

I noticed you left "you won't be job locked" out of your quote. This puts the statement in a different light. It means you can take the insurance with you as opposed to having to work in that job solely for the insurance. A lot of people are stuck in that kind of place. I would also like to see the rest of the remarks before I make a judgement as perhaps it was something that should be taken in context as opposed to a poorly edited snippet on some news site I've never seen before.

So you are equating Pelosi's campaigning to be reelected, with her work as Speaker of the House?

Could you possibly explain to the less initiated here how that connects?

Bingo's aside.

As per the article, Pelosi made that statement in her capacity as SOTH, which as explained earlier is a different "Branch of Government" from the President.

An explanation would sure be enlightening.

Thank you

I suppose not everyone reads the instructions on this site, so I will educate you here a bit..

Here is the EXACT title of the article used..

Here is the instructions for Breaking News..


* Copy the exact headline of the story into the headline field, don't make one up or sensationalise it. Submissions with inaccurate, biased or otherwise deceptive headlines may be moved, closed or deleted.


I don't blame people for not knowing, but refusing to accept is a personal fault.

As for you not knowing the news site, I can not apologize for being more widely read.

Thank you

She's counting on her work as SOTH in connection with Obama's agenda to win her favor with those who support Obama in her voting area. If you don't think she'll bring up Obama and all the work she did for him I'd say you are being overly generous.

But it's not a different branch when you think about it. When the president wants it done it gets done. Obama is the defacto leader of the Democratic party on all levels. So yes, he does in essence command her. She is there to rally the troops and ensure the Presidents agenda get's through the house. She has become an extension of the executive. It shouldn't be that way, but that's the way it's been for the last 10 years or so. Have you ever seen her defy Obama?

I didn't take issue with your headline. I took issue with you leaving that part out of the quote.

I'm sensing mod rage, time to vacate the thread before I get in trouble.

I left nothing out of the quote either..

If you read the instructions, you will see the amount quoted is also set. I simply did a Copy and Paste.

I generally tend to not be too concerned with people that wont click a link and read the entire story. Kudos for you doing that.

Those that don't are not here for intellectual debate and not worth the real effort.

The Constitution would disagree with you.

Branches Of Government

If you will click on the link, you will discover the three very distinct branches of US Government and the fact that Obama and Pelosi are very separate.


Have you ever seen her defy Obama?


Yes

Dems Defy Obama

Nancy Pelosi takes swipe at President Obama's campaign promises

There are more, but this substantiates my side so this will suffice.

okay I misread, you did NOT sensationalize that part. that part of my argument is invalid.

however, this caused me to dig a little deeper. Why would a news source scrutinize a quote, however poorly worded, that ultimately doesn't mean anything? Then it hit me, The CNSNews.com (or Cybercast News Service), formerly called the Conservative News Service, is an American news website owned by the Media Research Center.

and what's MRC? The Media Research Center (MRC) is a content analysis organization based in Alexandria, Virginia, founded in 1987 by conservative activist L. Brent Bozell III

hmm, why would a conservative write an article trying to make a democrat look bad? Their "ammo" if you will is just dummy rounds

then I started looking at the other content:
lol
REPUBLICAN HEROZ
opinon:THE LEFT IS WRONG, RIGHT IS RIGHT

I can't believe I got suckered into this whole thread. It's not news when it has a political slant, it's just an informative opinion. news telling you how to feel.

So attacking the messenger, ie the video, is a valid tactic in your opinion?

The video is what it is, she said what she said.

Why does the source upset you so?

I sure wished I would have had some of the debates about the health care bill with some savvy folk on here instead of my mindless co-workers.

First, let me say that while everyone I worked with was running around debating whether or not the bill would pass, I politely told them that it was completely obvious that it was going to pass. I don't know how I knew it, but I just did. I have a knack for things like this. I think it had something to do with the fact that we were ( are ) in an economic crisis and they were talking about damn health care. Not that it wasn't important, but it since I travel to all kinds of different places of work ( from manufacturing, to defense, to aerospace...well nearly everywhere ) I could tell first hand that people were more worried about their jobs.

Heck, even on this very site you see the majority complaining about job losses to illegals. It's a big concern for people. Now, as far a the health care bill. It scares me, and please hear me out first before slamming me because I admit I'm ignorant on a few things.

I fear that "they" are going to use this health care bill to force "pills of compliance" down our throats. Also, I fear that if we don't take these mind numbing meds, then we'll be refused other treatment like repairing broken bones. I say this because this bill is border line socialism. It may have great motives, like freeing up people to learn how to play the sitar and such, but we can not have the people responsible for telling us what to do also be in charge of our well being. When I was in the service, I was refused surgery ( not life threatening ) because I didn't take my heart meds. I was also refused dental work because I wanted to wait to get fillings until I got out.

These are the types of things we'll all have to contend with.
