To the editor:
Albert Einstein once said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Is Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D) insane?
In late June, Pelosi, addressing jobless extension benefits, said, “It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name.” Of course, when Republicans call her out on this counterintuitive statement, what does she do? Yes, demonize Republicans — again. The problem with Pelosi and Democrats, including, of course, President Obama, is they want to keep spending more money (our money) and not figure out another way to create new jobs.
Obama declared unemployment would not rise above 8 percent with the near trillion-dollar stimulus package. As we know, this did not happen, as currently unemployment stands at 9.5 percent and nearly reached 10 percent earlier this year.
President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D) vision of fixing the economy is nothing more than “fiscal insanity.” America has four months to decide whether or not they want Obama, Pelosi and Reid to keep doing the same thing over and over again and getting the same lousy results.
