RUSH: Listen to this from Nancy Pelosi. You know… (sigh) I go back and forth on this woman. Is she really this dumb, or is it an act tailored to low-information voters? I have to say, ladies and gentlemen, the jury’s still out on this.
But let me give you an example of why it is questioned. She was speaking with reporters outside the White House yesterday after this victory lap celebration. This will tell you… This one sound bite here will tell you so much. But it will tell you why I am so desperate to teach history to children. It’s because of this. This is the kind of bastardization, retranslation and redefinition of what the founding of this country was all about.
This is Nancy Pelosi defining the purposes for the founding of this country and getting it dead wrong. Here we go. Here’s the first…
PELOSI: There are those who are critics and there have been bumps in the road. But they’ve only been turbulence. they have not been an obstacle to the American people having healthier life. But our founders wanted for them, life — healthier life — liberty, the freedom to pursue their happiness. Not job locked, but having benefits that — health care policies that — are portable. They could be self-employed, be a photographer. They could start their own business. They could change jobs. They could reach their aspirations.
RUSH: This, folks, is infuriating! This is what she thinks the Founding Fathers meant by “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” portability of your health insurance benefits? Yes, “life — healthier life — liberty, the freedom to pursue their happiness,” and you can’t be happy if you have to work. You can’t be pursuing happiness if you are “job locked” because you gotta have benefits.
