I knew that many liberals are against public displays and references to God and religion, but I had no idea that they intended to replace Him so quickly.
In her press conference last Thursday, Rep. Nancy Pelosi said what had to be one of the most ignorant statements I have ever heard.
When asked about a bill being proposed that would define exactly what eminent domain could be used for, Pelosi begins to refer to the Supreme Court with reverence due a diety.
It may sound as if I am exaggerating her comments, but her exact quote was:
It (the Kelo v. New London ruling) is a decision of the Supreme Court. If Congress wants to change it, it will require legislation of a level of a constitutional amendment. So this is almost as if God has spoken. It’s an elementary discussion now. They have made the decision.
Now that is awful interesting. Since liberals are always saying that the Supreme Court appointed George W. Bush as President. It is “almost as if God” selected Bush to be our President. I wonder if Pelosi was just as supportive of that decision. I’m guessing not.
Does she realize how often this could bite her and harm, not only her political future, but all Democrats in general? Can you imagine the impact of a commerical featuring her comments on the New London case and her comparrison of the Supreme Court to God?
This is political gold for Republicans in the mid-term elections. Virtually everyone disagrees with the New London case and everyone has disagreed with the Supreme Court at some point and here you have the Minority Leader saying that the Supreme Court rulings are essentially the same as an edict from God.
If Rep. Pelosi honestly believes the statement she gave, then I challenge her to reference the Bush v. Gore case at her next fundraiser and repeat her statement about the power of the Supreme Court.
New Republican slogan: Pelosi and Dean: Speaking so we don’t have to
