The Extremist

Don Surber has an outstanding and disturbing post on erstwhile House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Read it all, but I'll net it out for you.

The Center for Responsive Politics reports Pelosi's net worth is between $14,746,108 and $55,085,000. She might, then, be the richest Speaker in American history.

She gets a 100 percent rating from the National Education Association (e.g., primarily unionized teachers).

She gets a 0 percent rating from the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which wants to crack down on illegal immigration.

She gets an F from the NRA.

Pro-abortion group NARAL gives her a 100 rating.

She opposed legislation to ease the construction of new refineries.

If Alaska's ANWR region were the size of a football field, she opposed drilling on an area the size of a postage stamp.

She opposed even having a Web site promoting the use of Yucca Mountain, Nev., as a nuclear waste dump.

On top of that, she wants to regulate energy prices.

Then she turns around and calls Republicans extremists.

Surber concludes:

Legislation is built on compromise... can Republicans work with a person who holds so many extreme positions and will not budge an inch?

For six years, too many Democrats like Pelosi have preferred that Congress do nothing rather than address the problems the nation faces. This has helped plunge public approval of Congress...


Put simply, if you want a stable economy, lower taxes, pro-growth policies, and a thoroughly clear-eyed view on matters of national defense, then there's really only one choice.

Vote Republican.
