“I Don’t Care if I am Unpopular” Says Pelosi … How About not being Trusted?


Only a quarter of Americans trust San Francisco Democrat, Nancy Pelosi.Pelosi1

Democratic Speaker of the House says that she does not care whether she is unpopular. That’s good, because she wont be too upset when she and her staff look at her terrible poll numbers. Although Speaker Pelosi, your approval rating has nothing to do with your popularity. It has to do with your job approval rating. In May 2009, CNN referred to Pelosi as facing Gingrich-like approval ratings. Ouch, to Democrats that is disastrous.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is one of the most despised political figures in the country.

And, frankly, she doesn’t give a damn.

“No, I don’t care,” Pelosi told POLITICO last Thursday, laughing heartily as she walked beneath the Capitol dome and plunged into a crowd of tourists. 

Last week’s Public Strategies Inc./POLITICO poll brought grim news for Pelosi, revealing that only a quarter of Americans trust the San Francisco Democrat — putting her in the basement with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio).

Unpopular is one thing; however, American voters are saying they do not trust her. This is a much different metric than simply a popularity contest.

“I don’t know about ‘trust’ — I think I’m trusted,” she said.

“I certainly want to be trusted. I’m not particularly concerned if I’m liked.”

So San Fran Nan does not care if she is unpopular. That’s good, because her poll ratings are actually below the Democrats worst nightmare, Rush Limbaugh.

Nancy Pelosi poll numbers are also below former VP Dick Cheney and the CIA. More unpopular than the dreaded Dick Cheney, how is that possible Nan?

It is a trending sign of things to come. Be on the look out for the mid-term 2010 elections when incumbent Democrats might just be put on the endangered species list.

      She doesn’t care that she is unpopular or disliked as long as she is trusted. I got news for you Botox Nan, you are not trusted either.

      Resign & move back to San Francisco. We don’t like you. We don’t want you around.

      I can’t even watch the news much anymore. Get all these looneys out of washington..enough is enough.. I want my country back.. Sick of watching these people spending billions we don’t have on vacations, nights out, parties, dinners while the economy is going over a cliff.. I am so sick of Washington right now..btw..why is Barney Frank and Chris Dodd still in Washington. Why is Geithner still around, why is Charlie Rangel..? You can’t run a country from the far left or the far right.. I have watched these people for months and tried and tried..to be patient,,enough is enough.. Compared to Nancy Pelosi..Doonesbury is hilarious(seriously what has kept that guy in business doing cartoons, they are so stupid?)Meanwhile we all sit back and watch them driving the bus over the cliff farther every day. To use James Carville’s terms..it’s the economy stupid.. and we are all gonna be taxed to death to pay for it before long.

      this should speak volumes about how sorry the present administration is could care less about the country or citizens. their only concern is themselves and their politics.
      nancy, when you can no longer control your bodily functions, and your daiper is soaked, i hope you get the same treatment. you are about five years from that situation now honey !

    4. rightknight on July 28th, 2009 3:46 pm

      Limbaugh is Guilty of telling the truth, much
      more than can be said of the entire Obowma
      Gang. No mention of how the poll was written
      or conducted. Considering the way Botox is
      being spewed around these days, it would not
      be reliable to read the lady’s face for verification.

    5. SUPER DAVE on July 28th, 2009 4:31 pm

      let’s bill obama for the use of our house. i’d say about 23 trillion should suffice as the first payment.

    6. ANewGirl on July 28th, 2009 4:38 pm

      Winning any popularity contests is not the issue here that Pelosi should be concerned about.

      The more I listen and watch her—the more I believe she is a merely power hungry wench out to make a name for herself by rolling over anything in her way. Really, Nancy- Madame Speaker My Ass. You are NOT an American Woman that I would use as a role model or an epitomy of a “success story for females” OR especially—I’d NEVER preach to my young Daughter to look up to Nancy Pelosi to or for anything…. Sorry!

    7. buster on July 28th, 2009 6:18 pm

      She is both the “Thrower” and Bus Driver all in one I like to think of her as:


      Or at least all of the above capitol letters

    8. yoyo muffintop on July 28th, 2009 8:31 pm

      Wow #6 – say what you want about her democratic politics but Nancy Pelosi broke down barriers for women. In 2002 Nancy Pelosi was elected Democratic Leader of the House of Representatives and in 2007 she was elected Speaker of the House. In both cases, she was the first woman in American history to be so honored.
      Nah – wouldn’t want your daughter to look up to that.

      Newgirl, you’d rather have your daughter look up to Bristol Palin. Lol.

      But let me guess – you liked Pelosi when she blocked impeachment proceeding against Bush. Yep, you did. Lol.

      Looking for acceptance again I see…pathetic.

    9. Susan on July 28th, 2009 8:44 pm

      Paloser is a b*tch, in every sense of the word! Nope, she can’t be trusted for damn sure :-(

    10. Susan on July 28th, 2009 8:46 pm

      lmao @ buster ;-)

    11. BUN on July 29th, 2009 6:50 am

      How far is she from president if we should say impeach the current prez, etc…I think she is quite close.

    12. SUPER DAVE on July 29th, 2009 7:15 am

      yoyo: your botox is leaking again. and i thought you only got that on your head !

    13. BUN on July 29th, 2009 8:11 am

      YoYo…once again your “spanz” garment is too tight and cutting off circulation to your tiny brain.

    14. Michelle Smith on July 29th, 2009 10:21 am

      YoYo Who cares if she was the first woman elected Democratic leader of the house or Speaker of the House, that doesn’t mean she deserved it or is honorable. That’s just like voting for any black man running for President because he’s black. Just because she is a woman doesn’t mean we have to agree with her or what she stands for. I can’t stand the witch. She is a lying, hateful, wench. She does not represent what I call a woman of class. I don’t trust her any more than I trust the President or any of the others goons in office.

      What does Bristol Palin have to do with this? Leave Sarah Palin’s family alone.

    15. SUPER DAVE on July 29th, 2009 10:46 am

      cowardly democrats still backjumping Sarah from behind. they can’t face anything coming at them. it’s always attack from behind.
      in this picture old nancy seems to be saying ” wait a minute, i just soiled my daiper”!

    16. ANewGirl on July 29th, 2009 12:43 pm

      YoYo- Once again, all I will say to your rude, ridiculous remarks & rants is the same thing GWB says when he is asked to comment on Obama’s insults hurled at his former Administration in the press:

      ” He deserves my silence .”

      And so do you.

    17. Susan on July 29th, 2009 3:47 pm

      #11 – BUN

      Nancy Paloser is second in line should anything happen to Obama :-( TRAGIC…isn’t it??? We don’t stand a chance in hell with Biden either!!

    18. BUN on July 29th, 2009 4:22 pm

      Thanks, Susan, I think if anything happened to our prez, Biden would faint and fall out and then Nancy would be the “wicked witch” in charge…kinda makes me need healthcare to think about the possibilities.

    19. Elmer on July 29th, 2009 6:06 pm

      Regarding post #7: This is absolutely incredible. A few weeks ago I posted a couple of comments about the lack of respect displayed on this board, and “Red” called me a troll and basically encouraged me to get lost. “Buster” habitually refers to women with the most offensive term possible, and folks fawn and wink. “Susan” calls Pelosi a bitch and tee-hees at Buster’s clever little play on words. Holy smokes! No respect and no class!

    20. Michelle Smith on July 29th, 2009 8:46 pm

      #19 Buster didn’t call women anything offensive and neither did Susan. They were talking about Pelosi. Need I say more?

    21. Waterboy on July 29th, 2009 9:52 pm

      Hey Nancy,

      Do you care that you are Ugly? Bitchy? Old? Crooked? Hyperthyroid? Narcissistic? Or that you have a mummified butt?

      I’ll bet not. Keep your botox appointments, or change your name to Mummy Pelosi. (Has a nice ring.)

      Oh, by the way, I hate your hair.


    22. Elmer on July 29th, 2009 9:53 pm

      Re #20: No, ma’am, you don’t need to say another word…

    23. yoyo muffintop on July 29th, 2009 9:54 pm

      #20 – Grow up.

      Lol…so easy.

    24. ANewGirl on July 30th, 2009 5:41 am

      #19- Elmer—I’m going to agree with you on this one.. on the terminology referred in Buster’s little play on words there. And, as you pointed out- he’s definetly used it more than once.

      Very derrogatory towards ANY woman & completely inappropriate to keep seeing on here. Just nasty! I don’t think he should be allowed to post that any longer. Calling Pelosi a bitch however, is really not a stretch.

      I completely disagree about this site having no class. Give me a break on that one. You are free to post here whatever you want—and for Red to call you a Troll—there must have been a valid reason. I vaguely remember the exchange- but, typically- it takes more than some nonchalant comment to get his ire up enough that he tells any visitor to feel free to go elsewhere. Just because the language can get pretty colorful in here sometimes also does not mean that most of the regular bloggers have no respect or class. If you can’t deal with any of it,,,well then I think you know what you can do.

      Now YoYo is going to post that I am desparate for acceptance or some childish BS like that, Uhmmn. No! just calling it like I see it and it’s only my opinion, of course.


    25. BUN on July 30th, 2009 10:11 am

      Hey New Girl,old friend, I just got a cute email about health care for old folks….when we turn 70 we will get a gun and 4 bullets, we then shoot two senators and two congressmen and then, of course, go to jail where we get all of our needs met for life, all food, all medical….wow!!

    26. BUN on July 30th, 2009 10:29 am

      New Girl ps….now I see this new old folk plan won’t work. Most of the 70 year olds have cataracts and so the 4 shots very likely would hit their feet and legs and then they (including me) won’t be able to walk to the free clinic…well it was a lol anyway and tongue in cheek….

    27. ANewGirl on July 30th, 2009 7:25 pm

      Hi, Bun #25 & 26— I can see you still have that wonderful sense of humor. LOL You are killing me! I especially liked the one hit above about the Spanx. he heh

      It seems as if the older population (you know, the Senior Citizens of America who votes the President so dilligently targeted & campaigned for since they were heavily relied upon)—Yes,these poor folks in our Country get railroaded and jipped yet again. Scary, isn’t it to think of what Medicare will be like by the time we need it—or our Grandchildren to be?!? The Health Care System in the States has needed some tweaking on several things for some time now—but a Socialized or Government Run program is not the answer. So far from what I’ve been reading which is being proposed before Congress now….it always comes down to the same thing….Middle Class America will feel the pinch even more than we already do! ….(i.e, Small Business Owners with less than 500 Employees (or less is it now? 250 maybe- I forget) do not have to carry or contribute to employee health care anymore—Translation: In these hard economic times when Joe Schmoe gets a job with Mr. Small Company—he has to fen for himself at astronmical costs or he and his family go without any health care….but Welfare Joe who has no intentions of ever seeking employment, the Girlfriend and 4 kids from different people STILL get complete coverage for free)…I could go on with a million more discouraging scenarios…but let’s keep it light tonite.

      =) Thanks for the posts…you always make me smile with your wit and sarcasim….Love it

    28. Kommander-in-Thief on August 10th, 2009 12:58 pm

      Every time I hear the name Nancy Pelosi, I am reminded it’s time to “drain the swamp” of the subspecies that comprises our current Congress!

    29. John Newbery on August 25th, 2009 10:14 am

      Who can tell me if these dangerous persons such as Pelosi,Dodd,Rangel etc will be up for re-election in 2010? Let’s not waste our rhetoric at this time let’s lie in wait until next year. Meanwhile it will give them a chance to read the want ads and/or stand in the unemployment line with the rest of us.

    30. bailey bob on September 12th, 2009 8:03 am

      oh they’ll never wait in line or look 4 a job. they’re set 4 life after office, so why should they care about anything. they’re set whether u like them or not. whether they do anything or not.
      what a shame.
