You know how much I love listening to Nancy Pelosi as she tries to make a case for her position and so often, fails to be logical at all. But this bit of blather takes it to a new level. In her accusation that Republicans are trying to exploit Jews for the upcoming election (as if Dems don’t exploit everyone for elections) she says this:
“I think [Obama] will” win the Jewish vote, Pelosi said, when pressed on the subject. “I think that he will, because the fact is when the facts get out. You know, as many of the Republicans are using Israel as an excuse, what they really want are tax cuts for the wealthy. So Israel, that can be one reason they put forth.”
What? I think the reporter is filling in the gaps, or trying to make some sort of sense out of it. After all, that fact is, that the facts get out and Republicans are using Israel as an excuse to lower taxes? How are those two subjects connected at all? I guess there was some hidden meaning in her statement “you know.”
And the final sentence: “So Israel, that can be one reason they put forth.” OK, Israel is another reason that they put forth tax cuts?
As Ronald Reagan was known as the Great Communicator, Nancy Pelosi is the Great Babbler.
