Nancy Pelosi is trying to get some help on becoming more likable:
“Lawmakers say she is consulting marketing experts about building a stronger brand. The most prominent of her new whisperers is Steven Spielberg, the Hollywood director whose films have been works of branding genius. Lawmakers said Spielberg has not reported to Pelosi with a recommendation.”
I’m not sure why it takes a “marketing expert” to tell her the obvious: Stop being such a dishonest political hack.
And stop making ridiculous statements… People tend to frown on that.
The following are ten outrageous statements made by Pelosi in just the few years. She should avoid making statements like these in the future:
1.“The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.’ On this Earth Day, and every day, let us pledge to our children, and our children’s children, that they will have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature.”
Nice. The only problem is the Old Testament contains no such quote.
2. “This initiative is funded by the high end – we call it Astroturf It’s not really a grassroots movement.”
Just gut-wrenching hypocrisy -Astroturf is all the Dem Socialists know, so naturally she accuses her political opposition of what her side does in spades.
3. “Every week we don’t pass a Stimulus package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.”
Yeah, she actually said that.
4. I’m confident…I’m hopeful that we’ll have a (health care) bill as a Christmas present for the American people.
This, after polls were showing a majority of the American people were against it, after several weeks of bruising (for Dems) town hall meetings in which citizens voiced their opposition to the bill, and after hundreds of thousands showed up in Washington to protest the bill…
5.. You go through the gate. If the gate’s closed, you go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we’ll pole-vault in. If that doesn’t work, we’ll parachute in. But we’re going to get health care reform passed for the American people.
At the time, 61% of the American people were saying it was time for Congress to scrap ObamaCare.
Imagine how many jobs we could create if everyone quit their jobs! Wait…..
Needless to say, natural gas is a fossil fuel.
8. “I think it’s unAmerican.” (to enforce immigration law).
She said that to a Hispanic audience, and refused to clarify the statement when Fox News called her office later on for comment.
This was in response to a question from George Stephanopoulos about the wisdom of spending millions of dollars on birth control funding in the stimulus package.
This stunning demonstration of political condescension was meant to calm the fears of the public – trust them – they know what’s good for us…
To quote Doug Powers:
“In the real world, demonstrating lunacy of this magnitude is known as a “cry for help” and an intervention involving large nets, straight-jackets and electric shock therapy is in order. But not in Washington, DC, where free-range crazies are allowed to pick pockets, loot futures, and all too often get re-elected”.
Tragically, she was re-elected, and House Dems voted to keep her as their leader.
Seems to me they all could use some help “improving their brands”. What that generally means for Dem Socialists is, “better messaging”…or in common parlance, “better lies”. Which brings us back to what I said at the beginning about dishonest political hacks. I guess Democrats call on marketing experts to help them with their lies.
I think it’s a lost cause, myself.
Dems hope to make ObamaCare more popular by “rebranding” it.
I did not know that supporters of ObamaCare, call it “pee-pack-uh”, an acronym for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Others call it the Affordable Care Act or just health-care reform.
But those less-than-inspiring monikers aren’t much help to Democrats trying to convince the public that “Obamacare” – the Republicans’ pejorative name for the law – is worth keeping, said Robert J. Blendon, a professor of health policy and political analysis at the Harvard School of Public Health.
Democratic pollsters concede that there is a problem.
“We do need a common narrative that includes a name,” said Celinda Lake, president of Lake Research Partners. “When Obama’s job performance improves, it will be fine to call it Obamacare. Now, it is polarizing.”
Yeah, that’s right, Dems. Change the name. Then people will love it.
That’s how stupid they think we are.
