Since she brought it up, let's just compare the record of President Bush and the Congress since Mrs. Pelosi took control.
From Feb 1, 2001-2007 the Dow Jones Industrial Average went from 11,100 to 12, 657 and by July of the 2007 it peaked at 14,200. I used Feb. 1 in these years because that is 10 days after President Bush took office in 2001 and the Democrats & Mrs. Pelosi took power in 2007. We see a rise in the market of almost 3000 points by July of 2007.
If we look at the market since July of 2007 it has now fallen from 14,200 back 11,400, almost where it began at the start of President Bush's term. It has risen several hundred points this week, but what is coincidental to this rise? It happens to be President Bush announcing that he was lifting the Clinton executive order banning U.S. off shore drilling for oil.
We can look at similar charts and stats on employment, housing, and inflation and in each case we can trace a decline to the take over by Democrats in Congress.
The truth is that the Pelosi/Reid congress are the real failure. They have been nothing but an obstructionist congress fighting any and every piece of legislation in order to self-fulfill prophecy. Success on the part of the Bush administration would mean doom for them.
Jessie Drops the N Bomb
Then we saw a Bru ha ha on "The View" over Jesse's use of the word. Elizabeth Hasselbeck had the nerve to question the use of the word, with Whoopie saying "We use it the way we want to use it." Really? Did I not remember just over a year ago seeing a funeral for the word? In fact it was at the NAACP convention. Don't believe me here is a link to the article with video and all.
Guess Whoopie did not get the memo.
Whopie went on to say that she and Hassleback lived in 2 different worlds. I would have to agree. Whoopie lives in her own fantasy world a neither world. Neither black now white. A world where she can pick and choose what she wants to be that day. Must be nice Whoopie. Few are privileged to live there. Whoopie, Oprah, the Obamas', Harry Belafonte, Bryant Gumbel, and a few others. The rest of us live in just one every so often touching the other.
Do as I say not as I do
When will Americans realize that Liberals are the new Hypocrites with former V.P. Al gore leading the pack.
While Al Gore is receiving millions of dollars, and awards for his speeches, and film on "Global Warming," his own home, air travel, and ground transportation, as has been well documented, is 1000 times that of the average American.
Here is the latest example of the Gore Hypocrisy. This video from Americans For Prosperity was shot outside of the venue where Al Gore was attempting to upstage Boone Pickens with his own 10 year energy independence plan. The difference in Al Gore's Plan and that of Boone Pickens is that the Gore plan is the same old idle talk about theories and speculative and very expensive energy substitutes. Did I not tell you in last week's post that I wanted to see what the left would do to try and counter Pickens? Gore's speech has been all over the news giving him free promo for his hot air, while Pickens is putting up his own money with a serious and concrete plan.
Speaking of "idle" while Gore was speaking he had 3 gas guzzling limos, waiting out back
(2 Lincoln Town Cars and one Suburban). One of the Lincoln's had the engine running for 20 minutes with the A/C on. Guess who got in that one? Sorry you will have to watch the video to the end for the answer. Oh, its only 5 minutes long.
