Again Nancy Pelosi walks the “not technically wrong but just looks shady” tightrope with Wallenda brother confidence:

In May 2010, then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi took to a podium in the Capitol to introduce a half-dozen economic experts she had convened for a meeting on how to jump-start the economy. The group had met for several hours with top Democratic leaders, and Pelosi invited them to speak publicly on their perspectives on economic growth.

What Pelosi did not mention is that one of the men in the group was her son’s boss and a partner with her husband in more than a half-dozen investments, including one that generated more than $100,000 in income for the Speaker’s family last year.

It was the fourth time since 2007 that Pelosi had invited San Francisco investment banker William Hambrecht to be part of an economic policy forum on the Hill and the third time she appeared at a podium with him to speak to reporters. At none of those events did the then-Speaker reveal her financial ties to Hambrecht, and House rules did not require her to do so.

And this is the woman who wants us to believe that her brother-in-law being involved in an investment group that received a Department of Energy “green” loan was just a weird coincidence?

    If Nan P. and the rest of the DC dems decided to put on an Olympic style swimming event, would they bother to skim off the pond scum ?!

    I hate to say this but our 1st Sgt has NanPel down to a 't'. It's scary. We had an awards ceremony ( when -don't- we? ) and it was so annoying I found myself clutching the theater seat upholstery! The bang waves, femmy-fem voice ( but w/ the firm resolve of a woman determined! blah blah )

    The trailing off remeniscent of our Sunday school teacher that went by the old rule of thumb, the more you whisper the more people will -strain- to hear you! Very unnerving.

    I hate whispering ! There is an art to whispering and it seems, there are no artists !

    I take it, the UCMJ has nothing to say about dissin` past and present House Speakers and other congress-critters !?

    Another example proving what I often point out: that it's not so much the illegal things our entrenched criminal class of elected weasels do that is so disturbing, it's that so much of their theft, extortion, graft and other forms of "wealth conversion" are actually LEGAL.

    SPG,

    Not even sure to what degree she's aware? I taught several classes w/ her in the past and she didn't seem 'as' bad. It's like this twisted version of "Desparately Seeking Susan". Emptying out your own personality traits to make room for someone you prefer over yourself.

    Maybe she saw NaPe as the quintessential model for what a Powerful Woman should look and act like. If she IS aware and it's all an act, damn she is good… If not?

    Oooo, I hadn`t at first thought of the Sarge bein` a gal. That makes it different, not an act, but perhaps fer reels ! ? So you gotta listen with a straight face ! Eeeeyow !

    Last week or so, I heard Michele Bachmann is the only Pres. candidate who has never participated in congress`s legal insider stock trading ! Though "legal", she considers it un-ethical and has refused ! Good for her !

    I'm hoping she does something dramatic very soon to get back into this thing, like firing her entire campaign staff charging that Ed Rollins has so corrupted them that she can't trust any of them anymore.

  9. SignPainterGuy on December 19th, 2011 11:33 pm

    She has needed to fire (publicly) Ed Rollins for months. I hope she will as you say, fire the whole bunch !

    She needs a miracle !
