(RepublicanInformer.com)- Mark Barabak, an opinion writer in the Los Angeles Times is worried about Nancy Pelosi. Losing the fight to ram through the wildly unpopular $3.5 trillion monstrosity now called “Build Back Better” would be a big black eye for the woman who was so successful in ramming through the wildly unpopular Obamacare in 2010.
Can she do it?! Will this be a test Nancy will win?!
Well, this writer certainly hopes so.
What do you expect? It’s the Los Angeles Times – the same paper that went out of its way to defend Governor Gavin Newsom while painting Larry Elder, a black man, as a white supremacist.
Barabak praises Nancy Pelosi for her “unflagging determination” and “pragmatism.”
Unsurprisingly, he never says word one about Nancy Pelosi’s commitment to representative government – mostly because she doesn’t believe in it. If she did, she never would have rammed through the wildly unpopular Obamacare, and she wouldn’t be fighting so hard to ram through a $3.5 trillion boondoggle nobody wants.
Barabak’s hagiography of the drunken old broad is a bit hard to stomach, really.
He praises her as “one of the most effective speakers in history.” Which, if the objective is to lose the majority in a blowout midterm, then, job well done, Nancy!
But, see. Nancy is considering stepping down from leadership after the 2022 midterms. And Barabak, like many of her Democrat colleagues, believes that we should let Nancy have this win, you know, for her sake. Not the country’s sake. For Nancy’s. Let her have one last victory before she stumbles off into the sunset.
How about no?
Barabak concludes his Song of Praise for the old girl by pointing out that failing to pass this garbage spending bill that creates a cradle-to-grave welfare state, kills job creation and energy independence and balloons inflation even more, “would no doubt be a huge disappointment for Pelosi.”
Yes, well, her disappointment is the country’s victory.
But fear not, Los Angeles Times readers, Barabak believes that even if she fails, “Pelosi’s voice will keep echoing for years and decades to come.”
