RUSH: The word ‘bipartisan.’ Everybody bandies that word around, and I’ve always said that ‘bipartisanship’ is defined in Washington as Republicans caving on their principles and agreeing with Democrats. The vote on the porkulus bill last night was a partisan vote. The victorious side was all Democrats. The bipartisan vote was the losing side. Eleven Democrats joined all the Republicans, 177 of them. Now, Nancy Pelosi, according to The Hill newspaper today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she didn’t come to Washington to be bipartisan. One day after shuttling through the porkulus bill without a single Republican vote, Nancy Pelosi said, ‘I didn’t come here to be partisan. I didn’t come here to be bipartisan. I came here, as did my colleagues, to be nonpartisan, to work for the American people, to do what is in their interests.’
This woman, folks… I’m as conflicted about Pelosi as I am sometimes about Obama. This is a Miss America, and what…? No. No, no, no. This is not a Miss America answer. You know, Miss America answers are basically. ‘Well, hee-hee,’ and try to cover both sides. Miss America answers are… I’ll back off from what I was saying. Those are young women. They’re… (sighs) They’re not all that educated and informed yet when they start answering these questions. We’re talking here about a mother of five, a grandmother of who knows how many. This woman has been around. This is an attempt to deceive. It is morally wrong for her to say she’s not partisan! She and Harry Reid are among the most partisan people in that town.
This is deceit. She’s attempting to say that her liberalism is how we define nonpartisan now. ‘I didn’t come here to be bipartisan. I didn’t come here to be partisan. I came here to be nonpartisan,’ and she will not and did not — and this is, by the way, a blessing. She did not let one Republican have one word of input on the porkulus bill! Now, that’s good, but that’s nonpartisan? This is just a deceitful woman. This is a woman who lives it, who practices it, and who gets away with it.
RUSH: Here’s Pelosi, by the way, audio sound bite number 24. This is where Pelosi says she didn’t go to Washington to be bipartisan.
PELOSI: We didn’t come here to be — I didn’t come here to be partisan. I didn’t come here to be bipartisan. I came here as did my colleagues, to be nonpartisan, to work for the American people, to do what is in their interests. I take credit for the great action taken by the Congress one week and one day since the president called for bold and swift action.
REPORTER: Your principle opponents were not John Boehner or Eric Cantor. They were Rush Limbaugh and Matt Drudge.
PELOSI: I don’t speak to that. I’m the speaker of the House! I don’t get into that pop culture.
REPORTER: Speaker Pelosi!
RUSH: ‘I don’t get into that. I don’t get into the pop culture. I’m not interested in that.’ That’s Nancy Pelosi today on Capitol Hill. ‘I’m not partisan. I didn’t come here to be partisan or bipartisan. I came here to be nonpartisan.’ She is the most… This is the seat. She is the most partisan next to Harry Reid person in Washington. There’s a website out there called WOW: ‘Women on the Web,’ and it’s a bunch of old clucking hens that get around and basically bitch and whine, and they put this little story out: ‘House Passes $819 Billion Stimulus, But No Help for Potential Mothers — Economic health may be on the way, but not for everybody, including poor women who can’t afford to have a baby in this horrible economy. Women’s groups are reeling over the news that family planning,’ and so forth, the money for abortions, ‘was taken out of the stimulus package after Rush Limbaugh and others blasted its inclusion. Planned Parenthood yesterday urged people to call the White House directly to voice support for the Medicaid…’
Now, what’s wrong with this? This is why I called ’em a bunch of clucking hens. Nancy Pelosi just got through telling you babes not to have any kids! Nancy Pelosi just said that abortion is part of the stimulus because it is going to save money down the road. No help for potential mothers. Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want mothers! I hate to be the one to remind you of this, but she doesn’t want anybody having babies. It’s just that simple.
