Now that the elections are over, I think we've all had some time to catch our breath and reflect on what "we the people" have accomplished. But just when I think it's safe to take it easy I see in the news that our outgoing speaker of the House is set to throw a reception to celebrate all she has achieved in the past two years. She has invited several of her congressional pals who recently lost their jobs. I hate to be a downer, but now maybe they'll understand what it's like to be unemployed. Then again, they pocketed millions of dollars, so that lesson might go unlearned. At any rate, let's celebrate the accomplishments. I bet I can count them on one finger.
The deficit is larger than it was two years ago; thousands of people are jobless, homeless and penniless. Pelosi and her minions robbed the people of their tax dollars by taking expensive trips with their families on our dime – making it rain with our money like it was no big deal. I've seen the receipts for their "business trips," and I can tell you, there wasn't much business going on. I learned that a bottle of top-shelf vodka is a write-off when you work on Capitol Hill.
Is it just me, or does there seem to be a pattern with most liberals? They like to celebrate and congratulate each other for doing nothing. Obama's Nobel Peace Prize is a prime example. And now there are parties to celebrate what lying thieves they all are. Is there no end to their madness?

I watched the Diane Sawyer interview with Pelosi just after the elections, and she had nothing but great things to say about her and her party. How they've tried so hard to fulfill the dreams of Americans and to create jobs and cut the deficit. … I laughed so hard I pulled a cheek muscle. Once again, she has proved that personal accountability is no longer a part of our value system.
In this interview, she expressed she had "no regrets" because she feels the Democrats had done the right thing. Really, Pelosi? You did the right thing? By going against 61 percent of the public and passing a Swiss-cheese health-care law that most who voted for it hadn't even read? Congratulations on being the first madam speaker and the undisputed champion of deception.
She also used "America's children" as a shield for her injustice, claiming she had done what was best for them and the American people. This isn't a dictatorship. You can't just go around doing what's best for us expecting us to thank you later. You have to do what we think is best, whether you like it or not. That is what a public servant does. The right thing for the American people is to listen to the American people. If we had taken a bullhorn to her ear she still wouldn't have listened.
When asked what she would say to herself to sum up her career as speaker she said, "Job well done." That was an obvious choice for Pelosi. It must be a job well done if so many Democratic candidates were blown out of the water by their Republican counterparts. She just can't take a hint, you know? It's like breaking up with a crazy person. They just don't get that it's over and you never want to see them again. They still think everything if fine and that you're still dating.

It wasn't long before Pelosi pulled the gender card. She stated women in politics need to remember the "gratitude for those who came before them and the responsibility to those who come after. " All that means is she is trying to solidify her place in history and wants women to be sympathetic with her "struggle." As a woman, I couldn't care less about her struggle. Especially since thousands of Americans are suffering at the hand of her politics. If she thinks because we have XX chromosomes we're somehow on the same page, she's sadly mistaken.
Reflecting on the message we sent Pelosi and her Democrats on election night, again she was in denial about her enormous screw-ups. "The message was not, I reject the course that you were on. The message is it didn't go fast enough to produce jobs." No, actually the message was that we didn't like the course you were on. Once again, you weren't listening. I'm curious as to what it would take for her to see how disgusting her politics are to the American people. If firing all of her friends wasn't enough, I don't know what would convince her. Maybe a session of waterboarding would help.
My dose of honesty: In reality this celebration is more like a wake, a time to grieve their loss and reflect on what miserable people they are. A pity party, so to speak. Every one of them has gone against the wishes of the American people, and they have paid the ultimate price: unemployment.
