California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi is 76 years old and I can’t but wonder if she is becoming selectively senile dur to her age, her liberal philosophy or both.
Eight years ago, Pelosi was full on board with the election of Barack Obama to the White House. Many Republicans criticized Obama for having no background in any foreign diplomacy nor any real experience in being a national political leader. She was so fast to defend the novice usurper who had less than four years in the US Senate, less than eight years in the Illinois Senate no other real experience other than local politics. It’s questionable if Obama had any real work experience before his involvement in local corrupt Chicago politics. When you boil it all down Obama had virtually no qualifications to hold the top political position in our country and the past eight years have proven that to be true. Nevertheless, Pelosi defended him to the hilt attacking anyone who questioned whether or not Obama was qualified to be president.
President elect Donald Trump just announced that he is appointing Dr. Ben Carson to be his Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. The liberal media wasted little time in attacking Trump’s appointment and attacking Carson.
Pelosi has joined in the attack of Carson, calling him unqualified to hold such a prestigious position. In a press release, Pelosi stated:
“Dr. Ben Carson is a disconcerting and disturbingly unqualified choice to lead a department as complex and consequential as Housing and Urban Development.”
“Our country deserves a HUD Secretary with the relevant experience to protect the rights of homeowners and renters, particularly in low income and minority communities, and to ensure that everyone in our country can have access to safe and affordable housing without facing discrimination or homelessness.”
“There is no evidence that Dr. Carson brings the necessary credentials to hold a position with such immense responsibilities and impact on families and communities across America.”
Oh really? As is typical with Pelosi, she speaks from either pure ignorance or from age or liberal philosophy induced senility. Pelosi is ignoring Carson’s background completely, which is:
“Carson came from a troubled and difficult background. His father, Robert, was a minister and worker in a Cadillac factory in Detroit. At the time his parents married, his father was 28 and his mother, Sonya, was only 13. She later found out that Robert had a second family and he later abandoned Sonya when Ben Carson was only 8-years-old. His mother worked two to three jobs to make ends meet and raise her two sons, Ben and Curtis. The boys grew up poor and often relied on food stamps and whatever government assistance they could get. During this time, Carson grew up in public housing in Detroit.”
Ben Carson has far more experience in public housing, government assistance, growing up poor in a bad neighborhood and being a minority than Barack Obama had to be president. Carson knows firsthand what millions of Americans are experiencing every day in their lives. Not only will he have firsthand knowledge and experience, but he’ll also have the compassion needed to help make life better for so many.
One off the many reasons why HUD has been such a dismal failure is that it’s been run by politicians and bureaucrats who have no real experience being poor, living in public housing, and being raised on welfare and food stamps by a hardworking single mother.
I believe that Ben Carson is more than qualified to be Secretary of HUD and I also firmly believe that Rep. Nancy Pelosi is suffering from sort of senility due in part to her age and in part to her liberal unrealistic ideology.
