House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just can’t help putting her foot in her month constantly.
Through the years, we can recall many occasions in which the Democratic congresswoman from the Bay Area has made bizarre comments that show how out of touch she is with the majority of the country and comments that are simply not factual.
Who can forget her comments in 2010 regarding Obamacare legislation, when she said they’d pass the bill to find out what was in it. Comments like these coming from the face of the national Democratic Party literally are the gift that keeps on giving for incumbent Republicans and Republicans seeking office.
Pelosi just can’t help herself from making these outlandish comments.
The latest came last week, after she was asked whether Congress is functioning as a coequal branch of government. Pelosi said this in response: “I think we’re a superior branch, quite frankly. We have the power to make the law and the president enforces the law. So we have a big role. We’re closest to the people and we have a big role to play.”
This is a very odd statement to make considering the U.S. Constitution, in its first three articles, defines three distinct branches of government: legislative, executive and judicial. The separation of powers also creates a system of checks and balances to ensure all three branches are coequal.
As someone who took an oath to defend the Constitution, Pelosi should be better informed about this sacred document and know the information in it pertaining to the three branches of government.
Many scholars who have devoted a lifetime to studying our system of government believe, contrary to Pelosi’s view, that the executive branch over the course of time has become more powerful at the expense of the legislative branch.
We’re not surprised Pelosi made this comment considering she continues to ignore her oath to defend the Constitution by supporting illegal sanctuary cities and allowing the unabated invasion of illegal immigrants into our country.
This was a total power play by a far-left politician who, quite frankly, has been in Washington for far too long. Once again, comments such as these by Pelosi show someone who is really out of touch with America, someone with an appetite for power and someone who needs to go back and read the Constitution to see what it in fact says.
