Blog: Pelosi and Schumer-Partisanship and Hypocrisy Anyone?
By Tom Mullings
Want a good belly laugh? Consider the following. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-California and Chuck Schumer, D-NY, failed to show up at the White House after receiving an invitation to do so by President Trump, claiming that he was just using them as political props and had no real expectation of including Democrats in negotiations for the pending tax legislation being considered up on the Hill. Mostly true, in my opinion, but here’s the rub: Someone might want to ask the Gentle Lady from the left coast and her political soulmate in New York, if they felt the same way about former President Barak Obama’s attempts to do precisely the same thing at least two or three times a year for the previous eight years. At least Republican leaders in the House and Senate never failed to show the Democrat President the courtesy of showing up each and every time. Earth to Pelosi and Schumer: How is it that with all your vast political experience you never became familiar with the words partisan politics and hypocrisy?!
