Nancy Pelosi: Perhaps one to many shots to the head?

If I didn't know better, I would have thought Nancy Pelosi was retiring from the ring after taking one to many shots to the head.

This is what she had to say at her last official news conference as Speaker of the House:

In the land where facts mean more than delusion, here are the facts:
When the Pelosi Democrats took control of Congress on January 4, 2007, the national debt stood at $8,670,596,242,973.04. The last day of the 111th Congress and Pelosi's Speakership on December 22, 2010 the national debt was $13,858,529,371,601.09 - a roughly $5.2 trillion increase in just four years. Furthermore, the year over year federal deficit has roughly quadrupled during Pelosi's four years as speaker, from $342 billion in fiscal year 2007 to an estimated $1.6 trillion at the end of fiscal year 2010.

So how did that Congress' deep concern for deficits manifest itself?

This is one of the (many) things that people hate about politics and politicians; that they can so flagrantly lie without a whiff of conscience.

Hello Matt,

Glad you found your way over here. Please do everyone a favor, and don't tell craig "Iowa".

What appears as brain damage on the part of Pelosi, is a typical Democratic attempt at setting the record straight with a lie and hoping that there is someone out there that actually buys what is said.

If she was only punchy, I could have some sympathy. The reality is that she's a pathological liar.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for stopping by. I hope it's more frequent.

She truly is either a liar or delusional.
