Nancy Pelosi had a very interesting appearance on Meet the Press this morning. She channeled Alfred E. Neuman by saying that Democrats would “stand tall” behind Obamacare in the coming mid term campaign. She also claimed that she and President Obama did not mislead the American people about Obamacare and that Democrats were not losing confidence in the ACA:

The Hill:

Pelosi told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that her members will “stand tall” behind the law during next year’s mid-term elections. Her comments follow the disastrous rollout of the government’s insurance web site and millions of health insurance plan cancellation notices sent to Americans despite Democrats’ pledge that they would be able to keep their policies.

“I don’t think you can tell what will happen next year [at the polls],” she said, “but I will tell you this: Democrats stand tall in support of the Affordable Care Act.”

“This is an issue that has to be dealt with. But it doesn’t mean, oh, it’s a political issue, so we’re going to run away from it. No. It’s too valuable for the American people. What is important about it is that the American people are well served, not who gets reelected.”

She downplayed the significance of the 39 Democrats who on Friday joined a Republican bill allowing insurers to continue offering plans that don’t meet the law’s requirements. She said that number is similar to the number that has voted on bills delaying the law’s mandate on employers and individuals.

“When the Republicans put forth a political initiative,” she said, “people respond to it politically.”

Pelosi called the rollout of the insurance web site “terrible,” but promised it will be fixed. She said jobs would dominate the election, “as it always does.”

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), interviewed right after Pelosi, said Republicans would continue to press for overhauling the law.

“No matter how congresswoman Pelosi tries to spin this, this is a mess,” Ayotte said. “It’s time for a timeout … so we can go back to the drawing board.”

Mad Magazine’s Alfred E. Newman’s motto is, “What? Me Worry?” And the laughable image she paints of panicky Democrats ducking for cover — equating that with “standing tall” — is the ultimate denial of reality.

PLASTIC SURGERY NEVER LOOKED SO PLASTIC
Pelosi is wound tighter than a sphincter. Which helps her because she talks through her ass.

"What is important about it is that the American people are well served, not who gets reelected.”

She is for the revolution, the fundamental transformation of America. Nothing else matters. She will say whatever has to be said, and all Democrats are supposed to fall on their swords for it.

Nancy Pelosi cancelled individual policies because they might not cover preexisting conditions but everyone she cancelled was not worried about preexisting conditions because thet had insurance before Obamacare cancelled them.

"Her best bet is to attempt a snow job that the low information voter will believe and the press will faithfully report as fact."

Pelosi's 'What, me worry?' snarkiness can best be answered: 'No, because Democrats depend on low information voters & there are sufficient numbers of them to believe every lie the President, the media & I tell 'em.'

Nancy's gone off her medication, and has been off of it for some time. I'm still waiting to hear all those incredibly beautiful Obamacare stories she has been raving about recently. It's too bad that they must have been classified 'Top Secret' along with Obama's college transcripts.
