    Pelosi, Dems Say Obama’s Policies Inspire ‘Confidence’; Blame Others for Market Decline
    Wednesday, March 11, 2009
    By Matt Cover

    Washington ( – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that the policies pursued by the Obama administration and by congressional Democrats are “inspiring confidence” in the nation’s economy. She said the troubled economy would soon reverse itself as government policy takes effect.

    “The word of the day is the word that is important to our economy every day, and that word is ‘confidence' -- confidence in our markets, confidence in lending, confidence in our financial institutions,” Pelosi told reporters at a Capitol Hill press conference.

    “It’s clear that we have to stabilize our financial institutions, we have to invest in a stimulus plan to grow our economy, we have to regulate our financial institutions, and we have to end the housing crisis,” she said. “The Obama administration has already done just that," she added.

    When asked by whether there is any connection between Obama’s policies and the market’s month-long plunge, Democratic leaders were unanimous in blaming the record losses on anything other than their efforts.

    “If there’s any message from the Congress to the markets it is that this (the stimulus package) is a fiscally sound package, because markets don’t like spending, as we know. This is a fiscally sound package designed to be a recovery stimulus package with finite investments, not long-term spending,” Pelosi said.

    “This is very market-oriented,” Pelosi continued, referring to Obama's “energy policy innovations and the whole building of the (power) grid to encourage the private sector in many, many ways.”

    Other congressional Democratic leaders praised Obama’s economic medicine. Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) said the administration’s policies were pro-market, but that they will take time to work.

    “With an enormous economy like this and problems that have been years in the making, (things) don’t turn on a dime," Frank said. “They don’t even turn on a trillion.”

    “I believe that what we are doing is very pro-market. We are dealing with some problems in the marketplace today, and we are talking about putting in place in the future things that will help the market work better.”

    Frank, who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, blamed the markets’ decline on the rest of the world, saying that Wall Street was reacting to a lack of international efforts such as those taken by Obama.

    “The American stock market is a globalized entity in its reactions,” Frank told “We’ve been ahead of much of the rest of the world in trying to respond to these problems but the stock market cannot look only at America, so part of what you’re seeing in the market is a pessimism about what’s going on in the world, where people haven’t responded as quickly as we’ve done.”

    House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles Rangel (D-N.Y blamed congressional Republicans, saying their opposition to the stimulus and other spending measures was driving market declines.

    “I think investors are not only looking at the market, but they are looking at the Congress and they are looking at our nation,” Rangel said. “I really think that the Republicans just have a program of just saying ‘no’. When you see a divided Congress there are people that wonder and worry.”

    Speaker Pelosi, meanwhile, concluded by saying that, outside of Washington, enthusiasm for Obama’s stimulus plans are high.

    “The markets are what they are, free, and we always want them to be,” Pelosi explained.

    “Outside the editorials, outside of Washington, the enthusiasm is much more positive, and in just a couple of weekends I saw the private sector very enthusiastic about the infrastructure initiatives and the rebuilding of America that is going to happen,” the San Francisco Democrat said.

    The Democratic leadership’s comments seemed to be in line with President Obama’s own view that daily market fluctuations were not an indication that his efforts are failing.

    (My commentary)

    Do they REALLY believe this BS? State it and make it so seems to be their mantra. Does repeating BS over and over again make it true?

    This is what the MSM is promoting to the general public, this feel good, happy, happy news and Obama will save us all rhetoric. Are they all on drugs or what?

    I confess, I never understood the HATRED towards GWB, nor do I understand the ADORATION of Obama. I actually feel/felt nothing towards them at all, other than understanding that they are all JUST politicians and nothing more.

    What are your thoughts?? Am "I" being blinded by something and am just not seeing what everyone else sees or what? Maybe I have been a doomer for way too long. LOL

    I almost went blind reading that.

    I have said it before, it is the cult of personality. Whenever and wherever this cult has raised it's head in human history there has been great tragedy.

      I am so, very sorry! Let me search and see if I can find you some relief money in the new Omnibus spending spree or in one of the other government spending programs that have been implemented lately. :D

      I DID post a warning, though. lol :p

      We are in so much trouble and the ones who are trying to sound the alarm are deemed gun-toting, Bible thumping zealots. Go figure..

          Pelosi is the Anti-Christ. At fist I thought it was hillary Clinton, but no, I do think the true evil is Pelosi and Obama is her puppet.

                    I just re-read that last night, let's see what those say...

                    Revelation 13:

                    1 And the dragon[a] stood on the shore of the sea.
                    5 The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months.
                    11 Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon.
                    12 He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed.

                    So he's got 42 months? The country won't last that long. Of course if this is predicting him and her, countries won't matter.

                      You want to REALLY hurl? Read this....
                      The Obama administration has to make cuts somewhere to push out this immense spending bill, so guess where they’re looking to save some money?

                        WTF!?!:eek: I'm glad that senator or congressman let it be known there was no way that would fly.
