Nancy Pelosi: 'I'm sick and tired' of 'useless' Republicans blocking Obama's ultra-liberal agenda

Nancy PelosiIn a campaign fundraising email posted Tuesday at Weasel Zippers, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she’s “sick and tired” of “useless” House Republicans blocking Barack Obama’s progressive agenda, and claims the only way to fix the “problem” is to elect more liberal Democrats.

“I can’t do that alone,” she said in the DCCC email. “I need your people-power to back me up.”

“I’m counting on you to step up and help me kick the useless Republican Majority out,” she added.

Pelosi specifically cited the background check legislation that failed earlier this year.

Obama reacted sharply to the failure of his gun control bills passing the Democratic-controlled Senate, calling advocates of the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms liars.

Pelosi has a long history of making such comments, from claims that Republicans would starve millions of seniors to statements that Republicans want to literally destroy everything.

She also declared the right to keep and bear arms exists in the First Amendment rather than the Second, and announced that tax cuts are “spending.”

The House Minority Leader even bragged once that Democrats are trying to “save life on this planet as we know it today.”

Her statements once earned her a sharp rebuke from Sarah Palin, who called her a “dingbat” and a “perfect spokesman” for the “far left running the Democrat Party.”

Last June, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C. called her “mind-numbingly stupid,” and suggested she “schedule an appointment” with a doctor.

Weasel Zippers had a short message for the California Democrat:  “The feeling is mutual, Nancy.”
