    Is Nancy Pelosi really this dumb?

    The answer:

    As a door-knob.

    Pelosi managed to get a bipartisan bill defeated by going to the House floor and attacking Republicans for the current economic situation, despite mounting evidence that the Democrats were at at least equally complicit in the current mess.

    Even if she were right it's dumb, dumb politics. Not only did she antagonize Republicans, she couldn't even control her own caucus with over 90 Democrats jumping ship like rats from a sinking boat.

    The good news is that the world did not end. So perhaps the "Fundamentals of our Ecomony" are better than anyone thought, that is except for John McCain.

    A chapter from the video edition of Politics for Dummies entitled: "Do Not Attack Your Enemies When You Need Their Help":

    WTF is this BS about "bipartisanship"?

    If it's such a winning plan she should be eager to pass it on party-line votes and take all the credit for herself.

    Instead, we have the party campaigning for CHANGE! on alleged Bush failures running to Bush for rescues.

    We live within the confuscian curse of interesting times.

    We should be very afraid of politicians like Nancy Pelosi who use the "gun to the head" approach in passing legislation costing $700 billion. Especially when the one calling for a bill is nonetheless, President Bush.

    They voted because they didn't agree with the bailout.

    So what you're saying is: in spite of republican spite, the so-called "leader of the House" couldn't muster enough support from within her own party. Even though dozens of republicans DID vote for the bill (idiots! Trancredo, included) enough dems voted against it to sink it and all you can focus in on are the republican members who wouldn't be bullied into voting for something the dems couldn't support from within their own numbers.
