Democrats are losing their grip. First Majority Leader Harry Reid claimed that all the horror stories about ObamaCare were just Republican lies, then the Senate’s Democrat leader announced that Republicans may have helped Russia annex Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula. Huh?
This astonishing accusation came before a Monday test vote on a Russia sanctions and Ukraine aid bill that Republicans blocked before Congress left for a recess two weeks ago. Since, Crimea seceded and Russian lawmakers annexed the territory. Leader Reid said:
It’s impossible to know whether events would have unfolded differently if the United States had responded to Russian aggression with a strong, unified voice.”
The Nevada Democrat said blocking the bill “sent a dangerous message to Russian leaders.”
The problem? Democrats actually blocked the bill, which passed in the Republican-led House.
And back to Nancy Pelosi, former Speaker of the House:
Standing in front of a placard touting “The Affordable Care ct Four Years Later” which portrayed happy-looking satisfied patients, she said “We just couldn’t be prouder” —of the reform that has denied Americans their preferred doctors, health plans, lots of their money, and an ability to travel, and still have care.
A reporter asked if ObamaCare is a “political liability for your party” in an election year. Pelosi said happily:
We’re not running on this, We’re running on what the American people want us to run on, and that is job creation.”
Well, there you go. If you say it, it must be so. The Obama-Pelosi “recovery” has included the longest period since the Great Depression with unemployment at or above 9.0 %, and higher for some segments of the workforce—especially young black men.
During the 65 years from 1949 to the beginning of 2013 — there have been no months with unemployment over 8% except for 26 months during the bitter 1981-82 recession which resulted in ending the historic inflation of the 1970s.
So the Democrats are going to run on job creation? Good luck with that.
