More Evidence that Nancy Pelosi is a Low-Information Member of Congress

Have you ever wondered why ignorant people get elected to political office? The voters know that they will not follow the rules. They know that they will not keep their oath. If enough pressure is put on them, they will vote the way

The latest ignorance coming from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is astounding. In reaction to the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School and the call for more gun regulation, Pelosi said that members of Congress took an oath to “protect and defend. That is our first responsibility.”

Protect and defend what? How?

Something’s missing. What did Pelosi and other members of Congress take an oath to protect and defend?

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Pelosi took an oath to “support and defend” the Second Amendment since it is part of the Constitution.

Nancy Pelosi can’t defend me if an intruder breaks into my house and wants to do me harm. I don’t have her private number, and she couldn’t get here fast enough to defend me. In fact, without a gun, Ms. Pelosi would be defenseless.

All she could do is tell the intruder that what he’s doing is against the law.

“Didn’t you see President Obama, surrounded by children, sign 23 Executive Actions that were designed to stop gun violence? Shame on you. Now put down your weapon and follow these new orders from the President.”

Writing that made me laugh and cry at the same time.

We shouldn’t be surprised that Ms Pelosi is a low-information member of Congress. When she and her fellow Democrats were pushing healthcare reform, she told the world that the legislation needed to be passed even if it had not been read:

“‘It’s going to be very, very exciting,’ Pelosi bubbled, telling the 2010 Legislative Conference for the National Association of Counties that Congress ‘[has] to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it, away from the fog of controversy.’”

I can’t see how passing new laws to curtail my freedom is protecting and defending me. These laws are making me less secure and criminals more secure since they don’t obey laws.

    In plain English, you meant: nancy pelosi is stupid. Artificial Intelligence is no match for natural stupidity. Between her and the people who voted for her – dumb and dumber. Got the fools on your side and you can be elected to anything.

    I wandered onto this site by accident, and after reading these comments, I feel as though I have fallen into a cesspool of ignorance, paranoia, and stupidity. Are you people posting here actually adults who have the rational capacity expected of voters? Your juvenile insults sound like something one might hear among a group of 4th graders.

    You are an amazing example of how our system of public education has failed. Not a rational thinker in sight. Thomas Jefferson would be rolling in his grave if he could read any of this. There are plenty of people in Congress and in public life whom we can criticize — at all points on the political spectrum, but I would think a person’s appearance would not be a point of contention. What, specifically, are you criticizing here? Do you know?

    Are any of you capable of making an intelligent or rational criticism of Congresswoman Pelosi or anyone else? This makes me ashamed to be an American.
