Democrats have tried to compare the dismal Obamacare enrollment numbers to Romneycare in order to justify their incompetence. But if you go back just a little further in time, you can find Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., railing against then-President George W. Bush’s Medicare Part D program, and sounding eerily familiar to today’s Tea Party “extremists:”

I think it’s a complete embarrassment to the Bush administration to have a piece of legislation out there that is so confusing, they can’t even explain it to anyone themselves.

Oh really? This from Nancy “pass the bill to find out what’s in it” Pelosi?!

… where the compliance of it is so difficult that they cannot help people to do it.

Maybe if the Bush administration had put out a handy chart like the this one for Obamacare:

Pelosi continued:

Democrats want to replace it, they want to give an extension, so they are not penalized for not understanding something that’s incomprehensible to even the Bush administration.

But didn’t Nancy realize that once a bill is passed, “It’s. The. Law.”? Also replacing laws is racist, and extensions are definitely racist.

Amazing how your words can come back to bite you in the Pelosi.

    Obamacare is a complete failure, repeal the blasted thing and repeal it now.

  • snowleopard (the true one)

    Here is the truth of Pelosi – she is insane and a pathological liar with delusions of grandeur and competence. She belongs in a padded cell.

    • texastommy

      You give her too much credit.

    • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

      She actually belongs in a stock or pillory in the public square with large baskets of over ripe vegetables and fruit nearby.

    • ObamaFail

      If *I* do it, maybe it’ll work out differently!! Then when it works out exactly the same, just blame the other side.

      • Acethepug

        Exactly — the Left never seems to make the connection that the PHILOSOPHY is flawed, not JUST the messenger. It’s always ” well, the RIGHT people weren’t running things.”

        To paraphrase Jabootu’s comments on Doctor Strangelove in his review of Superman IV, the Right People ARE running things, and that is why things are so screwed up.
        The Left will never understand that. The lessons of history are lost on them.

    A lot of the GOP, now, sounds like Pelosi, then.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    • Steve in Katy

      A lot of the GOP then, sounded like Pelosi then. GWB was a moderate and often went against the base.

    • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

      Only the Part D program came in under projected budgets and the Dems complained because it didn’t come in far enough under budget. Also it wasn’t passed using parliamentary trickery at Christmas Eve, with relatively no debate on the actual bill being voted upon, and didn’t contain 2500 pages and generate about 10,000 pages of new regulations, require hiring thousands of new IRS agents and also force every American to get prescription drugs.

      But other than that, exactly the same.

      • ObamaFail

        MJ is grasping at straws because Obamacare is looking worse and worse and worse and reality isn’t letting up. So attacking Bush is just about all they have.

      It’s hard to accuse someone of crying wolf when the wolf is eating their children.

      Tell me again, with Medicare pt. D, did everyone have to sign up or face a penalty? Sounds like Obamacare is still 10 times worse.

      And Medicare pt. D didn’t force millions off their insurance, didn’t cause millions to lose their jobs or be cut to part-time, it didn’t add $6 trillion to the national debt like Obamacare will in the next 10 years. Spin all you want. But Obamacare is much worse. Besides, you would have praised Medicare Part D if introduced by a Democrat. Just like you’re desperately trying to defend Obamacare

      • Matt

        Where exactly am I defending Obamacare?

        But you miss the point I made. Pelosi was saying to replace a law she thought was bad, and the GOP is saying replace a law they think is bad. And it is pretty bad.

        • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

          Giving the two laws equal standing as to how they affect ALL Americans is by default, defending Obamacare.

          • Matt

            I wasn’t comparing the laws, I was trying to compare the responses to the laws.

  • Steve in Katy

    “Now is the winter of discontent.” The President said he would not negotiate with a gun to the head of the American people and now we’re in this mess. I hope the House passes a defund bill only. Don’t give the Dem Senators cover. All or nuttin’! Take it or leave it!

    Politicians are like diapers. They should be changed often and for the same reason.


    • Arkuy The Great

      These politicians are like the 2-year-old with a filthy diaper who wonders why the room smells so awful.

  • Mr. Fever Head

    Nancy Pelosi is one year away from being a crazy cat lady. I don’t suspect she remembers to change her own adult diaper, let alone what she said during the Bush administration.

  • brightfartbanned me

    Nancy is a disgrace to common sense and truth.

  • Paul C.

    Nancy needs a bib for the drool. She is soooooo out of touch with reality.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Pelosi’s so confusing, nobody can figure out what’s in her either, but we’re pretty sure it’s bovine fecal material.

  • detroit19

    What I got out of this video? Pelosi has had some GREAT plastic surgeons on retainer.

  • Tom Montz

    Nancy Pelosi is an idiot and the poster child for stupidity in Congress. Her dissusions is dangerous for this nation and thankfully she will never be President.

  • Moltar

    Another law Nancy didn’t bother to read before she signed it.
