Pelosi: Obama’s Gay Marriage Reversal ‘Not Political at All,’ ‘Nothing to Do with Money’
May 10, 2012


Just when people were thinking of going back in the water .....

But wait ..... here comes Nancy.


(CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said President Barack Obama’s embrace of same-sex "marriage" on Wednesday was not political “at all,” nor due to concerns over fundraising from the LGBT community, adding that she’s not “big in the bundler crowd."

At her weekly press conference with reporters on Thursday, Pelosi was asked whether fundraising may have affected the president’s decision to endorse homosexual "marriage," and if she had spoken to friends, donors and “bundlers” who now are more enthusiastic for Obama because of his apparent “evolution” on the issue.

“As I said to you before, this is a statement the president made, I think everybody can say we didn’t know it was coming, right?” Pelosi said. “And it had to do about with who he is, what he stands for, what he believes, what he thinks is right for America, our families, our values and our faith in the future.”


Watch the video if possible.

Every "definitive" statement has that "I'm fibbing" look on her face !!


Is anybody here a body language or facial expression expert ?

If so, please educate us

“Anything about the politics is incidental,” she said. “I don’t think that this is political at all.”


“And our statement from the (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) DCCC and from me had nothing to do with money,” she said. “Nothing to do with money.”

Yet oddly enough, the announcement came only days after many Gay and Lesbian rights organizations were reportedly withholding funds....


President Obama announced his support for same-sex marriage less than 48 hours after the Washington Post reported that prominent political donors were threatening to withhold donations over the president’s position on gay rights.

So, did his opinion "evolve"...or did he just want heavier pockets? Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this one out.

You got it right !

They were successful in "evolving" the money from "on hold" to "on account"


And Biden was the PurrrFect shill.

They ain't so dumb after all.

Who's next ?

Funny how this whole scenario was timed for release right before Obama's grand George Clooney Fundraiser last night. Obama apparently said enough to net $15 million from his adoring fans in in La La Land... Mission accomplished. I guess they are hoping he will act on his "new" position AFTER he wins the November election.

A dangerous lame duck session..

Nancy needs to go bye bye

Just because he said he was for it, after he said he was against it, doesn't necessarily mean he is sincere.
He only said that because the BIG Hollywood Clooney fundraiser was coming up.

Now that he has raised 15 million bucks, you can expect Obama to throw his gay supporters under the bus.

My only expertise in the field of KINESICs is related to interviewing or interrogating someone but some things are universal.

One constant is that both politicians and pathological liars are notoriously hard to read because they have a tendency to believe their own lies which takes away all the indicators. That and politicians are coached and rehearsed so well.

If you have ever watched Janie Driver (who I think is really good in the field) talk about Nancy you'll know that she is particularly hard to read because she has a little age palsy and her head shakes. That and her "facial work" impede her involuntary responses.

However, that said she let out two things in this statement that to me would set of bells and ringers as possible indicators of deception. I am not an expert but have some experience here's my take for what it's worth.

1: As she says, that they had no idea the President was going to make this statement she is betraying her lie by shaking her head in the affirmative while stating the negative.

- This is a classic subconscious betrayal.


2: When she says it had nothing to do with money, she states the point over a few times as if to convince herself that it was true.

- This is often done by pathological liars when they are speaking on a point they haven't yet accepted as true themselves.

- This is used much the same as, the modifiers...honesty, I swear to god, etc.,

- Then there is Barrack's favorite - Let me be clear. These type words are used because subconsciously the speaker knows what they are about to say is the exact opposite of what they are trying to convince you to believe or the statement is a lie. When Barry say’s let me be clear – whatever he is about to say will be some ambiguous wishy-washy BS.

He only said it was his "personal opinion"...he never pledged to do a damned thing about it...That's the beauty of smooth-talkin' Obama, and exactly why Romney doesn't have a prayer (get it) of beating him....

He can collect the dough, never act on it, and still say truthfully that he didn't go back on the campaign promise, since the promise was never actually made! Slick Willie would even be proud of that little song and dance...

It's a good thing I usually believe the complete opposite of anything that comes out of Pelosi's mouth.

(ps.. im sick and tired of this country talking about gays and abortion. Pick a real issue that actually effects the operation of the country. Like I don't know... the floundering economy.. decade long wars.. depreciating purchasing power.. homosexuality = a non issue)

I called this yesterday or day before, they are trying to pull votes from Republicans who support gay rights.


Pelosi continued: “But I will say this, we’re hoping to have many more Republicans join the bandwagon. I think what the president did -- whatever the timing and the rest -- was an attempt to unify and not divide.”

Considering some Democrat voters picked an imprisoned felon over Obama recently shows that the money he raises may not be enough to get him re elected.

Well if that was their plan they are idiots. They should have picked someone else to try and convince Republicans to "join the bandwagon" .. I don't think there is anyone the "Right" hates more than the Wicked Witch of the Left.

They make me sick, so sick of holly-weird.

and people on the left make fun of Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann.

Nancy (we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it) Pelosi has got to be the biggest female dunce in politics, hands down.

Hate is such a strong word can't stand would be a more accurate description of that lady is does not live in reality.

Gay marriage was political it was about pandering to a demographic that was the only one left and about getting campaign cash.

Not a peep for 3 and half years first it was the African American vote then it was the Hispanic Vote then it was the Middle Class vote then it was the poor vote then they finally got around to the LGBT.

This stuff is so transparent is laughable polarize and divide get them so focused on each other and then slide right on in for another 4 more of the same failed leadership.

Leadership is rising above the petty politics and putting this country first instead of what keeps you in power.

No character from Pelosi or anyone on the left.

You must have forgot that Pelosi was formally the Speaker of the House (3rd in line to the Presidency). What does that say about the Democrat Party?

While you didn't ask me to analyze Obama's announcement - here is what I got out of it....

If anything since Obama is already here in California, he might as well go to Palm Springs, and the Castro District while he is here, if he is serious about supporting gays...I don't think he would why? because he obviously doesn't care...
