Nancy Pelosi: Pete Peterson is a Saint

I was channel surfing, honest, and I came across Charlie Rose interviewing Nancy Pelosi. Rose started talking about CEOs demanding action on government deficits and reining in spending. Pelosi responded that many had said nothing while those deficits were being amassed. But then she went on that some had. She said Pete Peterson was wonderful, that he had been a saint on this. At that point, I changed channels in disgust. I can't watch this shit anymore. Been there, done that for too long. The lies our pampered elites tell us and each other simply don't interest me, but this one ambushed me, and it is such a perfect example of how in the bag the Democrats are to the looters. Nancy Pelosi, the great "liberal" from SF, thinks Pete Peterson is a saint. That tells you everything you need to know about the Democrats, and why everyone in the 99% should run the hell the other way from them.

There isn't a link up yet this evening to the show at the Charlie Rose site, but you can look for it here:

It would be the October 25, 2012 interview and the quote I mention occurs somewhere within the first 10 to 20 minutes. I would say around the first 15 minutes.

The link is up:

Yep, it's a bit more difficult these days for lawmakers to deceive (with the internet, etc.).

Take a gander at this HuffPo piece and video of Pelosi endorsing Bowles-Simpson. Sorry that I can't embed the video.

Here the link.

That's the first thing that popped into my head. Yes, we know why, thanks to the efforts of so many people here, including you, Hugh, but that doesn't mean everyone else does.

Wild guess: Charlie Rose did not ask that. Nor did he ask Pelosi if that meant Dick "Deficits don't matter" Cheney was wrong when he said that just a few years ago.

This is why I can't watch these boneheads any more. They sit there, brows furrowed, nodding like the sages they believe themselves to be, and let these people spread this toxic waste far and wide.

Offhand, I can't think of one single news show host who challenges or calls out their guests in a meaningful way. I hope I'm wrong and there is at least one. But please don't tell me it's Rachel Maddow, because no, she is not.
