    How Petty is nancy Pelousi? this Petty.

    How petty is Nancy Pelosi? This petty

    Jazz ShawPosted at 12:31 pm on March 13, 2019







    Remember kidsÖ Vice President Mike Pence is not a decent human being. And when you find such an unacceptable cullion hanging around your workplace, what do you do? You give him (or her) the boot. Thatís precisely what Speaker Nancy Pelosi has done, kicking the Veep out of his office at the House and taking the space back for herself. (NPR)

    See Also: Lori Loughlin 2017: When I think about my daughter going away to college, it makes me want to cry
    The speaker giveth, and the speaker taketh away.
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has reclaimed office space her predecessor, Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., awarded to Vice President Pence.
    Republicans gave Pence, a former House member, a first-floor bonus office in the U.S. Capitol shortly after President Trump was inaugurated in 2017.
    The vice president rarely used the space, but it was a symbolic gesture of the warm relationship Pence enjoyed with Ryan and the House GOP.
    The real world implications of this are virtually nil, but the symbolism speaks volumes. Was this really necessary? Clearly, the office wasnít in that high of a demand or Ryan wouldnít have been able to sacrifice it for the past two-plus years. And while Pence might not have needed to use it all that often, it was a convenient spot when the Vice President needed to be in the neighborhood in case there was yet another 50-50 vote coming up in the Senate during the last session.





    • That wasnít an unusual of a requirement as you might think, either. In just the first two years of Donald Trumpís first term, Pence had to come cast a tiebreaking vote 13 times. Compare that with Joe Biden who didnít have to perform that task even once in eight years. Dick Cheney cast eight votes over two terms and Al Gore cast four in the same amount of time. Dan Quail was never called on for that duty, though George H.W. Bush had to do it seven times while Reagan was in office. As compared to other recent Vice Presidents, Pence has been busy as a beaver.








    Beyond being useful for that function, offering Pence an office was just a polite gesture. Itís not as if he has no business hanging around the legislative branch when needed. I mean, the guy is only the President of the Senate, after all. But now itís going to be given over to the legislative affairs team, at least according to one of Pelosiís spokesmen.

    We understand that the Democrats are all about the #RESIST movement now and doing everything they can to be confrontational when it comes to the White House. But couldnít we at least pretend for a while that the co-equal branches are all playing for the same team? This was a petty, snide move on Pelosiís part and she comes off looking much smaller for it. As for the Veep, heís apparently shrugging it off and getting on with his duties. Perhaps he can get his office back in 2021 if Pelosi is somehow no longer holding the Speakerís gavel.
    Sarah Sanders doesn't often mop the White House Press Corp Floor...but when she does, she uses Jim Acosta.

    The Devil whispered in Trumps ear and said,
    "you're not strong enough to withstand the storm".
    President Trump whispered back,"I am The Storm"!

    Her "core" is the only thing original about her.

    Everything else has been botoxed, added, lifted and tucked.

    Too bad we don't have cosmetic surgery for the soul.......

    There has been a long history of treating the VP, who presides over the Senate, as irrelevant in all but tie breaking votes. John Adams was the first to find this out.

    But I don't recall this kind of personal slight ever happening before?
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan

    I worry more over this statement:
    The vice president rarely used the space, but it was a symbolic gesture of the warm relationship Pence enjoyed with Ryan and the House GOP.
    ...than any pettiness out of Botox Brain.

    Still, one would think that a woman of her fastidiousness would consider it beneath her to do something so unseemly.
    Then again, one would assume that she knew better than to ever wear white with off-white, too.

    The woman has obviously lost her marbles.

    What, she couldn't get the better of O'Crazy, so went after VP Pence, instead. His graciousness, as we all know, will backfire on that babe.
    I've only had two beers in dog years.

    It is difficult only for the others.
    It is the same when you are stupid.
