Pelosi Says No Rally in Raleigh: No DNC Convention Necessary

by David Yeagley · July 19, 2012 · 9 Comments ·

One of the most important women in the history of American politics has just told Democrats to stay home from the September 3rd Democrat National Convention in Raleigh, North Carolina. This is a first of its kind public announcement. What might it mean?

No tax returns from the multi-millionaire
Nancy Pelosi, just now.

It could mean that they are so confident that Black Barry will win both the nomination and the presidency again that they need not rally in Raleigh.

It might also mean that the Democrat leader feels that it will be useless to have Obama in office if the House and Senate are controlled by Republicans. The way she said what she did seems to indicate her concern is over the Democrat races in the states. Therefore, all funds must be invested in winning House and Senate seats.

This then would imply some deep suspicion or fear that the Tea Party movement will rise up again, as in 2010, or that the Republicans have sense enough to recognize that Obama will win, and therefore the Republicans must hold both the House and Senate.

Either way, this unprecedented public advice from the most powerful woman in the Democrat Party expresses a financial concern. There is a apparently a decided fear that Republicans can ‘buy’ the House and Senate seats–if the the Democrats don’t wisely spend their money in those political races.

Inevitably, Pelosi’s words imply that the Democrats are short on political money.

Could that be possible? Is this a Freudian slip, some confession that the big money in the world is still Republican? Is that what Democrats fear? Or, is that what they are compelled to pretend? They must play the underdog role, always. As Limbaugh says, this current president it trying to create a coalition of losers, of dependents, of those who would rather be given money than to earn it. If the beggars outnumber the workers, then Obama wins.

So, maybe the Democrats do need to cry poverty, officially. That way they refurbish their image of spokesman for the common man. What a glorious image. Let’s listen to Aaron Copeland’s “Fanfare for the Common Man.” Or maybe Pelosi would prefer Joan Tower’s “Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman (a pitiful, gestural imitation).

Aaron Copeland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, 1942.

Of course, Pelosi wants to see Romney’s tax returns, but that’s all part of the image of fighting for the common man. Herself being worth $35.2 million as of last year, it is terribly important that she and the other Democrat tycoons make every possible appearance of fighting for the poor–whom they are willing to take advantage of in precisely all the ways of which they accuse Republicans. They survival depends on the emotional strength of their accusations against Republicans. Of course, they never want the same standards applied to them.

Posturers, they are. Pretenders. “Politicians,” we normally call them.

Nancy Pelosi, “Why can’t you believe me?”

So be it. We all know this. So why do these people keep getting elected? Because we have elections. True, only about half the eligible voters in America bother to vote, normally speaking. And if it is true that most people are not wealthy, then it should be an even contest, no? Most poor people don’t vote at all.

It’s all about getting the most votes–from those who do vote. That we call political campaigning. Seems a far cry from reason. How could we ever expect a worthy leader to arise when the sole premise of his appeal to get elected is his sales pitch? Well, I suppose that is the American way. Capitalistic politics. Or, political capitalism. Elections are a sell. That’s all.

“Just trust me. I’m good. I’m rich, but I’m good.”

    Pelosi Threatens Media: ‘Maybe The People Writing These Stories’ Should Release Their Tax Returns

  • 2 Kris // Jul 19, 2012 at 9:31 pm   

    My first thought, Dr. Yeagley was it was an acknowledgement the Democrats could very well lose if they don’t return to their respective districts. They’ve been told by Obama not to expect any money or support from the White House for their own campaigns and I strongly feel Ms. Pelosi’s sending a message to Obama…one that says: if you don’t support your own party’s candidates, there’s no reason we should support she was telling Obama, everyone is out for themselves and they have to save their own hind end. I think she just told him to pound sand…I was very surprised to hear it, even though it was entirely predictable, considering his adolescent attitude and behavior.
    This past month, I started reading that new book by Edward Klein, formerly of the New York Times, ‘The Amateur’. He brought up something I had no notion of and it has actually been very well hidden by the media. Obama not only hasn’t gone out of his way to speak to Republicans, as you might expect but he hasn’t been particularly friendly with those of his own party. Would that be the reason for this sudden change of feeling from Ms. Pelosi? Who really knows? I think, quite instinctively and contrary to popular media opinion, the Democrats have suddenly realized they’re in big trouble, as Rush would say, across the fruited plain, in all elections, state, federal and local. What Obama has done to politics in the last four years has damaged the Democrats in ways they couldn’t have foreseen or even imagined. The internal numbers are devastating. In prior elections, people didn’t start paying attention until just before the general election. They are now and they’re more than just peripherally interested, they’re informed and really know what’s going on and they’re getting involved. Obama has been a one-man wrecking crew in destroying the Democrat Party. And as you know, he couldn’t care less about the party; it’s all about him. I guess that’s the point. He’s advancing his own agenda and everyone who disagrees even if it comes from within his own party, he’ll sweep aside. He’s done it before during his Chicago races. It’s easier in fact to do that. There’s so much speculation out there. A week ago he’d lost at least ten highly placed Democrats up for re-election declining to attend the DNC Convention. That says to me, everything the SOB has done affects the party; his disapproval ratings are skyrocketing. He’s disliked and he’s distant. Wasn’t that what Charlie Rose and Tom Brokaw commented on prior to his ascension to the Oval Office? They didn’t know or understand the universe of his thinking. They still don’t understand Obama. His narcissism is a wall even the media can’t get through.

    3 pictures of Pelosi in this article. Do you have some kind of fantasy for this woman, Dr. Yeagley?

    Logic states this will be the closest election ever because the nation is evenly split between people paying the taxes, and people receiving the “entitlements.” With most of Hollywood supporting liberals, and money from George Soros and the like, I doubt Democrats are hurting for money. It’s all a dog and pony show when Pelosi speaks. There is not a single word that can be trusted, other than foibles like – We have to pass the bill so we can see what’s in it.

    Secession. Please. Someone stand up and call for secession. Texas maybe. Wyoming. Oklahoma. Somewhere.

    Might fear of minority violence ignited by the convention event (which would ruin the peaceful protests image of liberals and their clientele) also be a possible factor?

    With today’s headlines out of Aurora, CO, I’m thinking any major assembly is subject terrorism. The Olympics have already been hit.

    Amazingly, our basic football and baseball games haven’t suffered–yet.

    Masses of people are deeply disturbing to the deeply disturbed. The imbalanced break out with violence. At least that’s the pattern for the American white lone wolf type.

    If your a Muslim, like Nidal Hasan, no analysis is necessary. I should say, none is allowed.

    I wonder if we should read anything into Ms Pelosi’s comments. Considering her record I think the botox has invaded her brain and made her comments irrelevant. Only Joe Biden can compare with her for strange or ridiculous statements.
